If your natural tooth is extracted, it immediately starts to lose its supporting bone in both length and width. Therefore, the aim during the placement of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with surrounding bone soon after you have had the extraction.
Implant placement is a relatively simple minor surgical procedure that will be done under sterile condition. It is performed under local anaesthetic. If required, if during the assessment, the underlying bone is insufficient, bone regeneration is carried out prior or at the same time as implant placement.
