The procedure started with 3-D planning, followed by the careful extraction of Sophie's tooth and addressing the inflammation. A new implant was placed, accompanied by a connective tissue graft.

The team didn't stop there; they immediately fitted a temporary tooth on the new implant, a crucial step in preserving the natural anatomy of Sophie's gums.

As Sophie examined her reflection post-treatment, the healthy stippling of her gums was evident. This detail signified that the fibroblasts and fibers in her gums were adapting well to the implant’s surface. Sophie’s story is a testament to the expertise and advanced practices at Wimpole Street Dental Clinic.

Her journey reflects the clinic’s commitment to innovation, patient comfort, and delivering results that exceed expectations. Sophie not only received a solution to her dental problem but also left with renewed confidence in her smile, all thanks to the wonders of modern dental technology and the skilled hands at Wimpole Street Dental Clinic.

What is an Immediate Implant?

An immediate implant is a technique where an implant is placed in the jaw right after a tooth is extracted. This approach speeds up treatment and maintains natural gum and bone structure. It involves inserting a titanium implant that serves as a new tooth root, ready for a future dental prosthesis.
