Should I Get An Implant Immediately After A Tooth Extraction?

same day extraction implant placement Alexandria

Do you have a tooth that is beyond saving? Considering a a tooth implant from the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria? There are advantages to combining the extraction and implant placement in one procedure. Let’s talk about the benefits of same-day extraction and dental implant placement.

1. You retain healthy bone

As soon as a tooth is taken out, the bone begins to recede. A dental implant is the only tooth replacement procedure that prevents (or greatly reduces) bone deterioration. The post that is inserted into your jawbone makes all the difference. It  fuses with your bone to provide a solid foundation for an artificial tooth.

2. You have the original tooth as a model for the crown

There is nothing like the real thing when taking an impression for a crown. If the tooth you are extracting is broken or misshapen, we will fix all those troubles with your new crown. But we’ll start with an impression or 3-D model of the original. This helps the lab techs create a perfect restoration.

3. One surgery vs. two

Not everyone is a candidate for immediate placement. But if you are thinking of getting a dental implant after an extraction, ask us if it would work for you. It may make sense to do both procedures together.
