What is the good time to get a dental implant?

Many patients generally wonder about the right time to get a dental implant because of their busy routines and how to schedule their time for the appointment with their dentists. 

There are several options that an oral surgeon can consider about the time of your dental implant placement. Although the best option for getting an implant is the Immediate placement of implant after your tooth has been removed because it gives maximum retention to the bone and the patient will not have to stay “toothless” in public. 

If you are dealing with any mouth diseases such as periodontitis, gingivitis, mouth ulcers, lichen planus etc. In that case you can delay your dental implant to some weeks till your mouth comes in a healthy state and we can have  better results because the healthy oral tissues will give better compatibility with the implants.

If your jaw needs an artificial bone graft because of the old age or sever periodontitis, your dental implant can be placed after months because it takes around 6 months for the bone graft to heal and get fully compatible with your original bone. In this way you can have a healthy bone regeneration along with the placement of implant in your tooth socket.
