Single Dental Implant | Multiple and Full Mouth Implants | Immediate Same Day Dental Implants

Single Dental Implant

Single Implant placement is the treatment of choice when someone is missing or about to loose a tooth. With proper diagnosis and good timing, we can offer an immediate dental implant placement option on the same day as tooth removal. Dr. Obeid can perform the surgery without cutting the gum (flapless surgery), which means no sutures, minimum discomfort, little to no swelling and a comfortable recovery.

Call us at ☎ Obeid Dental Chevy Chase Phone Number 301-652-9505 with any questions about Dental Implants or to schedule your consultation with Dr. Obeid.

We can also provide a fixed temporary the same day. In short, you walk into Obeid Dental with a tooth and you leave with a tooth.

Indications For a Single Dental Implant

The process of an implant, in principle, replaces the roots of a tooth with an metal screw that is ‘implanted’ into the jaw. This can be done immediately after removal of the tooth or to replace a tooth that was previously lost to damage. A temporary replacement tooth is fabricated and used during the healing process. After the area is fully healed (typically 2-4 months), a crown is fabricated and attached to the metal base. The dental implant now functions as your natural tooth would, retained in the bone of the jaw. The complete implant process can take 3-5 months depending on the complexity of the clinical situation. Dr. Obeid will take the time to explain the all steps of the procedure at the consultation visit.

Trauma

Any injury or trauma to the face can lead to the loss of teeth. Simple trauma such as a fall or accident may lead to an immediate loss of the tooth. The number of sports related dental injuries we see is on the rise. Competitive sports such are becoming increasingly aggressive and demanding physically. The most frequent cases of sport related dental injuries occur from Basketball (typically an elbow to the jaw), Soccer (head butt), Cycling (falls), Lacrosse and Hockey (stick injuries).

Caries/Decay

Caries/Decay before
Caries/Decay after

Decay (also known as Dental Caries) is the number one reason for tooth loss. Cavities can occur at any age on an existing filling or crown. If left untreated, it will cause the tooth to fail and require an implant.

Failing Root Canal

Failing Root Canal before
Failing Root Canal after

A root canal can fail over time. If it can’t be retreated, the tooth will need to be removed. If left untreated, an infection from a failing root canal can lead to bone loss, complicating future implant placement.

Infection

Infection before
Infection after

Infections in the mouth can have long term damage beyond immediate pain. A lingering infection will begin to dissolve the bone that retains the tooth. The most common causes of infection an untreated cavity, failed root canals, untreated periodontal (gum) disease, decay under existing restorations (such as crowns or fillings) and root fragments (usually the result of trauma or an incomplete surgical extraction).

Congenitally Missing Teeth

Congenitally Missing Teeth after

Ideally all your baby teeth will be replaced by stronger permanent teeth. In some cases, the secondary tooth never formed so the patient is left with a gap. This happens most frequently in the front lateral teeth. An implant is the treatment of choice to replace a congenitally missing tooth.

Failing Crowns/Restorations

Failing Crowns/Restorations before
Failing Crowns/Restorations after

All restorations have some inherent ‘shelf life’. Decay can occur around and under existing fillings and crowns. If left undiagnosed, the resulting cavity and any accompanying infection can destroy the tooth. In these cases the tooth must be extracted. An implant can be placed immediately after the extraction.

Previously Extracted Tooth Site

There are many reasons why a patient may have delayed replacing missing or extracted teeth. Even years later the sites of previously extracted teeth are still able to receive an implant.
