Immediate Dental Implant

If you know you are about to lose a tooth, or if you have suddenly lost a tooth, there may be a chance that you can get your tooth replaced with an ‘immediate’ dental implant.

If you have lost a tooth and more than two days have gone by since it happened, you’ll find lots of useful information on our Implants for Single Missing Teeth page.

If you have just lost your tooth you need to act quickly

If you have just lost a tooth (for example, as a result of a sporting injury) it may well be possible to put an implant tooth in immediately. You should act quickly though: it only takes a couple of days for the gum to grow down into the socket – and this will make it difficult to put an immediate implant in place.

If you know you are about to lose a tooth

If you know you are about to lose a tooth, come and talk to us before your tooth comes out as this will maximise the chances of an immediate implant being possible.

We offer a free consultation with an implant dentist who will be able to advise you as to whether an implant can be fitted immediately and give you all the alternatives so that you can choose the most suitable course of treatment.

There is never any pressure to proceed, and the information is entirely free of charge.

When are immediate implants possible?’

There are two key conditions that have to be met to make an immediate implant possible:

  • the bone around the failing tooth must be intact;
  • the gum and surrounding area must be infection free.

If both these conditions are met, then it is possible to carefully extract the root and immediately put an implant directly into the tooth socket.

If the implant is sufficiently secure in the bone we can also put the titanium post in place and put a temporary crown on top. This treatment means that the patient can literally come to the clinic with a failed tooth and leave a short while later with a new implant tooth in place.

The temporary teeth look very natural and stay securely in place until the implant has healed sufficiently to put the permanent crown in place.

The advantages of an immediate implant

An immediate implant can save months of waiting for your new tooth. It will reduce the number of visits you need to make to the surgery, and the money you have to spend on preparation and surgery time.

What they say about us

Implant Denture Review

Andrew has removed all my upper teeth and I have had an implant denture fitted. Surgery day was completely pain free and following it, not a single pain killer required. The hardest thing was to put up with a temporary denture for 3 months. On final fitting of my implant denture I could finally chew food and I murdered a kebab on the first night!!

Also my upper teeth now look fantastic and natural.

Don’t hesitate and go to Winning Smiles.

Life Changing Smile Makeover

For years I had wanted to have lovely teeth, I have a huge smile and it was looking worse and worse, I had a mish mash of teeth on a plate, awful fillings and discolouration. I was fast losing confidence and my smile. No one wanted to take on the challenge – then I found Andrew and his team.

Straight away Andrew decided what was to be done and when I was really worried and couldn’t believe anyone could give me back my smile Andrew took the time to call me and go through all the treatment with me giving me the confidence to go ahead with the treatment.

Thank goodness I took the plunge, it is life changing not only can I really smile again but I can eat properly oh the joy of biting on an apple!!

I really can’t thank Andrew and his team enough – it was an adventure at the end of which I got the treasure, not only my amazing new winning smile but all my dear new friends at Winning Smiles. If you are considering treatment – don’t hesitate – it is truly life changing and I cannot thank Andrew and his team enough.
