Immediate Dental Implant Restorations Versus Delayed Restorations

As a periodontist here in Raleigh, I have had the opportunity to perform implants for the past 31 years. Dental implants are often considered a viable option by patients with missing teeth due to injury, decay, periodontal issues, or congenital deficiencies. In placing implants, I have seen both immediate and delayed dental implant options provide aesthetic and practical solutions to patients.

There are pros and cons to both implant types including aesthetic and overall health considerations. The success rate appears to be slightly higher with delayed implant treatment according to my experience and the European Journal of Oral Implantology. For more information on implant treatment and success rates, see “The Timing of Implant Placement After Tooth Extraction.” To determine which option best fits your individual needs, contact our office for a consultation.
