Waiting after a Tooth Extraction to have a Dental Implant


Find UK Dentists »

Many studies have shown that implants can be placed straight after a tooth extraction and have similar success rates to those placed long after an extraction. This is good news because other tooth replacement options such as full dentures require a considerable wait while the gum heals before the treatment can continue. Evidence has shown that dental implants placed with temporary crowns into freshly extracted sockets work just as well as those placed weeks later.

If you are having a tooth extracted and are interested in dental implants, speak to your dentist before your appointment.
