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.

Immediate temporary restorations are an important part of the dental implant process. They allow the patient to maintain an acceptable amount of function with their teeth through the implant healing process. They provide esthetic appearance, something that is also important. No one wants to walk around with a gap in their smile. They are also important to prevent the opposing teeth from shifting. By supporting the gums during healing, the temporary helps to make the aesthetics of the final restoration more predictable.

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. This is made possible with extensive planning that will is personalized for each patient since no two patients are alike.

What to Expect

Our Wirral dental practice offers complete care for dental implants. Every step of your procedure will be performed in the comforts of our dental practice. After your treatment plan is created, we will schedule the surgical portion of the process. Here, your dentist will remove the tooth, place the implant, and immediately attach the temporary restoration. It will remain until the osseointegration, the process of the implant fusing with the surrounding bone, is complete. After the dental implant integrates with the bone and is healed, the temporary restoration is removed and an impression is made for the permanent restoration. The temporary has let the patient continue on with life without having any missing teeth.

If we are unable to complete this, other options include using a temporary “sticky” bridge or an invisible mouthguard that contains the missing teeth.

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.

Benefits of Immediate Temporaries

Immediate temporary restorations means a person will never have to be in public without teeth. They give the patient a temporary tooth that will not slip, shift or fall out. They also allow the patient to eat normally, speak without fear of it falling out, and smile with confidence. There is no need to be embarrassed by the gap in your smile!
