Immediate Implant Placement in Duxbury, Massachusetts.

Dental implants are an important tooth replacement option for individuals with one or more missing teeth. Tooth loss may occur due to severe tooth decay, trauma or injury, aging and wear, infection, or severe gum disease. To restore your teeth functions, your dentist may need to prepare your jaw bone to receive an implant and place a crown or bridge over the implant in the course of four to six months.

However, the evolution of dentistry has made it possible for patients to receive same-day dental implants after a tooth extraction. Contemporary Prosthodontics offers immediate implant placement in Duxbury near Hangam, Cape Cod, and South Boston, MA, depending on the structure of your oral anatomy.

Our prosthodontists in Duxbury, Dr. Andrew Wiemeyer and Dr. Samuel Lee can restore the function of your teeth immediately after tooth extraction with same-day dental implant treatment. However, there are a few things you need to understand about dental implants. Watch the video below, and let’s discuss your options for immediate dental implant placement in Duxbury, Massachusetts.

How Immediate Implant Placement Works 

Immediate implant placement requires your prosthodontist to place the dental implant into the extraction socket at the time of extraction. Studies have shown that getting an immediate implant can shorten treatment time due to the reduced number of surgical procedures involved. 

Compared to delayed placement, immediate dental implant placement can be a faster procedure. It allows for a replacement tooth to be placed on the same day you have your tooth extracted. This procedure is known to preserve the surrounding bone and gum tissues at the extraction site and also stimulate the growth of fresh bone and gum tissues.

While immediate implant placement has its benefits, it isn’t suitable for everyone, and it carries more risk of implant failure when compared to traditional implant placement procedures. This is due to the fact that the implant is placed on a site that hasn’t fully healed.

Before Getting an Immediate Implant Placement in Duxbury near Hangam, Cape Cod, and South Boston

Before you can receive an immediate dental implant placement at our dental office, our prosthodontists will first need to diagnose and carry out proper investigations regarding your dental health. This is key to determining a successful treatment outcome. 

Dr. Weimeyer or Dr. Lee uses cone-beam computerized tomography to determine if you do not have any oral disease and an X-Guide® Machine to digitally plan the extent of the dental implant treatment. Also, to be a candidate for immediate implant placement, it’s imperative that:

  • You’re not consuming any recreational drugs or prescribed medications
  • You do not have any systemic diseases, such as diabetes
  • You are not using nicotine
  • The buccal and lingual plate of the extraction socket must be present
  • There shouldn’t be overhanging or insufficient restoration margins at the teeth adjacent to the extraction socket.

If you have lost supporting bone tissue prior to receiving an implant, you may need a bone grafting treatment before you can have an implant placed. Likewise, any pre-existing conditions, such as tooth decay or gum disease, will need to be treated before you can receive an implant.

  • Reduced surgical procedures
  • Less injection, drilling, and pressure on the cortical bone
  • Enhanced patient comfort
