Can I have an implant at the same time as a tooth extraction?

23 May 2019

This may be possible, but it depends on several factors. Pedro must determine the amount and quality of jawbone available and if there is any infection present. An infection can mean a bone graft is required before you can have an implant fitted.

If the conditions are favourable, then it may be possible to have an extraction and implant done during the same visit, which would certainly help to preserve the natural health of the jawbone. It would also save a lot of time, as you wouldn’t need to wait for the gum to heal after the extraction before placing the implant.
