Immediate implant placement
When a tooth is extracted it can be possible to place an implant at the time of extraction. It may not be possible in every case, but in this example it saved 3-4 months of healing time. The implant is allowed to heal and integrate into the bone. A small healing cap at the gum level is the only sign that there was an implant placed. With the final crown the patient can clean, floss and chew like normal.
