Immediate Dental Implants
Woodland Hills, CA

Woodland Hills Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is one of the only practices in the San Fernando Valley to offer Immediate Dental Implants to our patients.

What is Immediate Extraction and Immediate Implant?

Immediate extraction & immediate implant is a revolutionary restorative procedure which fits patients with a dental implant directly following tooth extraction within the same appointment. Traditionally, patients waited a minimum of six weeks for the extraction site to heal before receiving a dental implant. At Woodland Hills Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, however, qualified patients can enjoy a complete, load-bearing implant the same day as extraction.

Patients who receive an immediate extraction and an immediate implant will enjoy:
•  Tooth Extraction and dental implant in one procedure
•  An immediate functioning load-bearing implant
•  Reduced Recovery following surgery
•  More aesthetic results due to preservation of their natural gum tissue

How Does Immediate Extraction and Immediate Implant work?

Before the immediate extraction & immediate implant procedure was developed, patients needed the extraction socket to heal before an implant could be placed in the space provided. This healing process takes approximately ten to twelve weeks, but thanks to the constantly advancing field of restorative dentistry, waiting until the extraction site heals is no longer necessary in certain cases. Dental bone is naturally pre-programmed to fill an extraction socket, so by placing the dental implant immediately following extraction, the implant is simultaneously anchored with the bone and healed into the socket from this natural healing process. Most importantly, it does not allow the gum tissues to remodel, therefore preserving the patient’s esthetics.

Who are the best Candidates for Immediate Extraction & Immediate Implant?

Ideal candidates for the immediately loaded approach to tooth extraction and dental implants are patients who need a tooth extracted, but the surrounding bone is not overly compromised by infection or by severe bone loss. A single tooth or multiple teeth in need of extraction can qualify. Patients often come into an appointment with loose teeth and walk out with a fixed, beautiful smile without wearing dentures. During your dental visit, a 3D scan of your jaw will be obtained to determine if your condition qualifies as a candidate for this convenient, less invasive, and time efficient treatment.
