How fast can a missing tooth be replaced?

Depending on the location of the tooth to be extracted, with proper planning, a tooth can be replaced the same day it is removed. Often, this is a provisional or temporary replacement in order to allow for proper healing time before a permanent replacement (dental implant, permanent bridge) can be made.


What is the best way to replace a missing tooth?


Dental implants are often the most preferable to replace a missing tooth without involving adjacent teeth. However, other options are available depending on specific patient needs.
