Wirral implant dentist Dr. Ian Buckle is able to offer immediate restoration of missing teeth. In our Thornton Hough, Wirral dental office, we can place a dental implant on the day of the tooth extraction and immediately fabricate and place a temporary restoration. That means you do not have to wear a removable restoration during the healing period of three to four months.
Dr. Buckle can use the existing crown or make a matrix in order to fabricate a composite restoration which we place on a temporary post. After the dental implant integrates (heals), the temporary restoration is removed and an impression is made.
By supporting the gums during healing, the temporary helps to make the aesthetics of the final restoration more predictable.
If we are unable to complete this other options include using a temporary “sticky” bridge or an invisible mouthguard that contains the missing teeth.
Implant Dentistry Wirral – Before & After
This case, the patient’s incisor was removed and a dental implant was placed. An immediate temporary tooth was placed on the implant to provide aesthetics and function while the healing process took place. There was no need for any stitches.
