Extraction and Immediate Implant Placement
Implants have come a long way and we are now able to restore a terminal tooth (a tooth that has to be extracted and replaced) immediately for optimum outcome. Extraction of a front tooth has long been a concern for patients because they were afraid to lose the front tooth and have nothing to place it for a while. This was because implants had to be placed and we had to wait for the bone to heal before we could replace it. This was often a long process taking about a year before the patient had a cosmetically acceptable permanent tooth replacement.
In the last few years, this has changed. Dr. Nasser Jafari at King dental Centre is one the few elite dentists in Canada that is able to replace your terminal tooth with an immediately restore implant option all in under an hour. This process makes it easy for patients to have a tooth on the same day their natural tooth is extracted and the final outcome is far better than what was previously possible.
