The one stage dental implant is placed into a new, healing or healed extraction site and is visible above the gum immediately after placement. The advantage of this method is that a second surgical stage is not necessary to expose the implant. The dental implant will not normally be ready to support a tooth for several weeks or months.
The two stage process involves a dental implant being placed into a new, healing or healed extraction site and then covered by a layer of gum so that it cannot be seen – this is the first stage.
At the second stage some weeks or months later, the dental implant is surgically exposed, and components installed, which bring the dental implant above gum level.
An Immediate dental implant is where a tooth has to be removed, and a dental implant is placed immediately into the extraction site. Depending upon the local bone and soft tissue conditions, the implant surgery may be a one or two-stage procedure. Not all patients are suitable for this approach.
