When we lose one tooth it is quiet easy to neglect the fact that it has to be replaced. Most of us think it is not important to compensate the loss of single tooth unless it is one of the front teeth. But, your dentist suggests you otherwise. This is because even a single missing tooth can lead to many changes in the jaw, risking the health of other teeth.
One of the most common questions we have, can the lost tooth be restored permanently without any troubles in the future? Of course, with the latest advancements, one of them being implants, any number of teeth can be replaced. Sometimes even the entire set of your teeth can also be replaced with the help of implants.
When will I get my tooth after implant placement?
The artificial tooth or teeth over the implant can be given either immediately or after a few months. This depends on various factors like
- Bone quality: When your bone density is normal, the teeth can be replaced immediately. But, in conditions where the density is compromised, that is, in case of abscess where there is loss of bone around the teeth due to pus formation, it is better advised to wait for 3 – 4 months for replacing the teeth.
- Underlying Systemic conditions: When you have any other conditions like diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiac problems, etc. the tooth over the implant is placed after a 3 – 4 months. This helps the implant get embedded in the bone properly without any interference thus making it stay for longer.
- Abscess: In case of injuries to tooth like when you fall down, accident, etc. there will be pus formation at the tip of the root. In this condition, the site of implant placement will be cleaned and the implant is placed along with the graft in most cases to allow bone regeneration. So, permanent tooth over the implant will not be placed immediately. In such conditions, usually the bone regrowth requires around 4 – 6 months of time. In this time period, the missing tooth will be replaced by a temporary prosthesis which will not affect the healing of the tissues and also help in better fusing of the implant with the bone.
- Previous gum diseases: In case of any gum surgeries in the past 2 years, the placement of teeth over the implant will be delayed for the better healing and aesthetics when we place final prosthesis.
