What Are Immediate Placement Implants?
At Premier Periodontics, we understand how severely damaged teeth can impact the health, appearance, and lives of Bellevue, WA area patients. As part of our ongoing dedication to advancing oral health and wellness, we are pleased to provide the latest in efficient implant dentistry and care. Our periodontists offer immediate placement dental implant procedures using guided implant techniques, which allow those who qualify to undergo a tooth extraction and precision dental implant surgery within the same visit.
This type of approach can be used to remove and replace single teeth, a series of teeth, or an entire arch and can minimize the number of visits it takes to address your tooth replacement needs. In some cases, bone grafting may also be incorporated into the extraction site to provide further support for the implant(s). If you have teeth that cannot be repaired and must be extracted, we welcome you to contact our team today to learn more about immediate placement dental implants. Implants are a long-term solution and are very similar in structure to natural teeth.

"Where have these two ladies been my entire life? Maryjo and Anja at Premier Periodontics, are the absolute best dental hygienist I have ever had! I had a dentist for 35 years who died in a ski accident and I was pushed out of my comfortable dental nest, so to speak, so I had the opportunity to find a new provider. My teeth were basically well cared for and I had no periodontal needs but I wanted to be proactive and research what was available. What about gum disease? What about implants that all my friends of a certain age are talking about? So, I made an appointment at the Bellevue office of Premier Periodontics which was comfortable, friendly and welcoming but not ostentatious. I had my teeth cleaned like they have never been cleaned before, and my gums mapped for recession. The advancements in dental care were fascinating and Dr. Dkeidek throughly examined my teeth and presented a plan of how I could better care for them. He also answered my many questions thoroughly and patiently. I was to have my teeth cleaned every 4 months to prevent further plaque build-up or recession of my gums. That was it! There was no hard sell to do any advanced procedures nor pressure to sign up for a package deal. I left the office smiling with a sense of receiving the best professional dental care available."- P.S. / Google / Dec 03, 2016
"In the past 11 years I have received dental implants, laser surgery and gum grafting services from Premier Periodontal Services. Doctors Madden, Ghadri and Gilbert are all exceptionally skilled and professional. I would not hesitate to return to them for services in the future or in referring them to others. Dr Ghadri recently did some surgical gum work for me and I was impressed with the skill, minimal discomfort and positive results that I have had from the surgery. He is exceptionally knowledgable in all things periodontal. I am very thankful that, now retired, Dr James Meyers referred me to Dr Madden in 2009."- L.M. / Google / Feb 14, 2020

Who Is a Candidate for Immediate Placement Implants?
Immediate placement implants are often ideal for patients who require tooth extractions due to advanced bone loss, severe decay, extensive damage, and functional teeth that cannot be salvaged. Before deciding upon an immediate implant procedure, our periodontists will examine your mouth, review your mediation history and any medications or supplements you take, and discuss all of your treatment options. This approach may not be suited for patients who smoke, are pregnant, or have certain oral or general health conditions.
How does Immediate Implant Surgery Work?
Before beginning an immediate placement dental implant procedure, our team at Premier Periodontics will take 3D cone beam images of your mouth and jaw, which will be instrumental in planning the precise location for your implants. On the day of your procedure, our skilled implant surgeons will numb the treatment site and can administer sedation dentistry solutions to keep you relaxed and comfortable during your visit. Your tooth will then be surgically extracted and bone grafting tissue may be placed within the socket to provide foundational support for your implant.
Using advanced guided implant surgery techniques, which significantly enhances accuracy, we will then position your dental implant screw in the jaw. In certain situations, dental implants can be immediately restored (loaded) to offer same-day aesthetics and proper speaking, biting, and chewing function. Otherwise, we may place a healing cap (abutment) or suture the tissue over the implant and give the area time to heal and integrate with the existing bone.
What Can I Expect After Immediate Implant Placement?
You may experience soreness and swelling in the extraction and implant site. Our surgeons may prescribe pain medication or recommend over-the-counter pain relievers to minimize post-operative discomfort. Special instructions on how to care for the area as you heal will also be provided at the end of your visit. A follow-up visit at Premier Periodontics may be scheduled so that we can evaluate the healing of your implant site. Our office will coordinate with your referring dentist to indicate when the implant is healed enough to be restored with a custom crown, bridge, or denture appliance.
Does Insurance Cover Immediate Placement Implants?
A portion of your dental implant and extraction procedure may be covered by your dental insurance plan. As preferred providers for several companies, Premier Periodontics will help you maximize your benefits and get the most out of your plan. During your consultation, we will provide an estimate of what we anticipate any out-of-pocket expenses to be. We are pleased to make covering the cost of your care convenient through our easy payment options for dental implants, including special 12-month financing and CareCredit® plans.

Dental implants are preferred by many Bellevue, WA patients for their lasting benefits and lifelike qualities.
