Immediate Implant Placement | Baytown TX
Immediate implant placement is a concept where an implant is placed at the same time as a tooth extraction, minimizing the number of surgical procedures and decreasing the amount of time needed to get a prosthesis/crown.
The process begins when a CAT scan is taken of the patient’s jaw bone. This CAT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jaw bone that can then be used with virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are a more accurate implant placement and less chair time for the patient.
