In many cases, it is possible to place a dental implant into the socket of the removed tooth right after the extraction. This method is similar to the Guided Surgery method in that it does not involve any flaps or surgical cuts. On the other hand, it is also similar to the open surgery method since it enables the surgeon to visually observe the bone area where the dental implant will be placed.
It is quite an advantageous method as it shortens the time required for the procedure and that it does not require a second operation. After the dental implant surgery, a temporary crown or a temporary denture is often put into the toothless area of the patient. Yet, the use of temporary dentures is not a requirement for all cases.
