Q.

Implants ?

Hi,

I have an abses on my tooth. The Dr. said I must remove it and then will let me know in 3-4 months if the bone is fine for an implant, but I have heard of people that had their tooth remove and the implant in the same op. I don't want to wait so long with out a tooth !!

Thanks

ASK YOUR DENTIST TO discuss "immediate loading" implants with you. the procedure works quite well but you have to be a suitable candiadte for it
