Nowadays, our teeth play an extremely important role both from an aesthetic and functional point of view. For this reason, our priority should always be to keep our own teeth in our mouth. However, if our teeth need to be extracted, placing implants will be the best option.
In classical implant applications, a long time is needed to let the bone close the gap left by the extraction.
On the other hand, modern implantology allows us to place implants just after the extraction and, to a large extent, to attach a fixed tooth immediately.
The reason for waiting before implant placement after extraction is the possibility of contamination by inflammatory tissues on the implant surface and insufficient bone formation. However, studies have shown us that if the correct techniques are applied, immediate implant application produces correct results. Numerous literature studies on this subject support this view. When implant insertion is done in extracted or previously extracted healed sites with a certain scientific osseointegration torque value, fixed teeth (Immediate Loading) can be loaded on these implants immediately. There are also many scientific studies on this subject. In short, with the right planning and adequate application, people whose teeth are extracted will not experience edentulousness not even for a day.
1) If all the teeth are extracted in the upper jaw or if there is complete edentulousness due to previous extractions, fixed teeth can be made immediately by planning an average of 6 implants according to the situation. A minimum of 4 implants are required for a fixed prosthesis in the upper jaw. The number of implants can be increased up to 8, depending on the width of the jaw curve, the application technique of the selected permanent tooth and the bone quality.
2) If all teeth are extracted in the lower jaw or if there is complete edentulousness due to previous extractions, fixed teeth can be made immediately by planning an average of 4 implants and fixed teeth can be made immediately. The number of implants can be increased up to 6, depending on the width of the jaw curve, the application technique of the selected permanent tooth and the bone quality.
3) If there is a reciprocal chewing area to be done in both jaws, fixed teeth can be placed immediately by applying at least 3 implants.
4) Fixed teeth can be inserted immediately in cases of tooth loss in the anterior region (the aesthetic area). In this case, the contact of the fixed teeth with the opposite ones should be avoided.
