Dr. Beckwith Discusses Immediate Implants on the AAID Blog

As a highly respected implant dentist, Dr. John D. Beckwith is often consulted for his expertise on dental implant topics. Most recently, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) featured an article he wrote for their website. In the blog, “Immediate Implants: An Option You Should Consider,” Dr. Beckwith describes what immediate dental implants are: “An immediate implant refers to the removal of a single tooth and root (extraction) and the placement of an implant in the same position, all in one procedure.”

Unlike same-day implants, like All-on-4, immediate implants involve only one tooth, which he says can be a more complicated procedure. To help readers understand if immediate implants may be right for them, Dr. Beckwith discusses qualities that make someone a good candidate and risks associated with the procedure. To conclude the informative article, he emphasizes the importance of choosing an AAID-credentialed dental implant specialist. “With an AAID-certified dental implant specialist and the appropriate conditions, you may be able to transform a tooth emergency into a healthy smile within a day.”
