I Have An Abscess At A Root Which Has Developed Over A Period Of 18 Months. Would This Prevent Me From Having A Same Day Implant?

Q.
Hi Dr Gambroudes, If I was a suitable candidate in all other respects, could a same-day implant be fitted to an upper first molar which has been identified as having a failed root canal treatment and where the X-ray shows an abscess at root which may have been developing for a minimum of 18 months – The crown has been taken off by a former dentist of mine in error and I’m now left with just the bottom 4 bits of tooth just below gum line. I need this treatment ASAP as I don't really want to wait the 3 months healing time needed after extraction of the broken tooth if necessary.

Hello and thank you for getting in touch with me. If there is an abscess at the root then this would need to be cleared up before any treatment commences. I would also need to see an X-ray of this to determine if any bone loss has occurred in the area. I would advise you to seek help from an experienced implantologist to find out you options. I hope this helps. Kind regards, Dr Marcus Gambroudes.
