Same Day Temporary Tooth Replacement

Traditionally, a restorative tooth is not placed on an implant until approximately three months after the implant is fully healed.  This process is important to insure the implant is strong and secure. At NC Prosthodontic Specialists – Implants, Dentures and Crowns, when an implant that is placed is visibly noticeable, a temporary tooth can often be attached the day of the implant surgery. Drs. Scruggs and Molina are trained in immediate temporization of teeth on implants and can discuss this type of procedure during patients’ pre-surgery consultation. 

Regardless if the temporary tooth (or teeth) are attached to the newly placed implant(s) or with a different method of providing a temporary tooth, our patients always leave the day of surgery with teeth that allow them to feel comfortable and confident throughout their healing process.
