Congratulations, Dr. Sreeni!

Congratulations, Dr. Sreeni!

Our oral surgeon and dental implant expert, Dr. Sivakumar Sreenivasan, recently gave a continuing education lecture focused on simplifying the implant process.

Many patients believe getting a dental implant requires too many separate surgical procedures. The process Dr. Sreeni outlined in his lecture allows surgeons to place implants immediately, with no lengthy wait between steps.

How Immediate Dental Implant Placement Works

Immediate placement aims to streamline the process of receiving dental implants. A patient with a damaged tooth often needs an extraction and must allow the area to heal for months before receiving the implant. Bone grafts further lengthen the process.

The surgical protocol Dr. Sreeni described in his lecture relies on digital planning and guided surgery. Each implant is built specifically for its position, giving the anchors space in the jawbone.

Immediate placement works for single-tooth, multiple-tooth, and full-arch dentures. Patients receiving immediate implants will heal faster and enjoy their new smiles quicker than ever before.

Who is a Good Candidate for Immediate Dental Implants?

Excellent gum and bone health makes you a better candidate for immediate dental implants. Good general health is also essential for successful placement.

Patients missing a tooth may not be good candidates for some time because they often need bone graft surgery before receiving an implant.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

Why does the traditional dental implant process take so much longer than the immediate one?

The gums and bone must heal with traditional implants before proceeding to the next step. When the implant can go in as the tooth comes out, the gum and bone can grow around it quickly.

Can I receive an entire arch of dental implants at once?

Dr. Sreeni specializes in implant-supported dentures. He can place these dentures in one step, extracting damaged teeth and installing the dentures on the same day. Even if all your teeth need extraction, Dr. Sreeni can restore your smile with beautiful, healthy-looking teeth.
