Depending on an individual’s circumstances, it is possible to place a temporary tooth or teeth on the implant or implants the same day the implants are placed. Chewing and using the temporaries is dependent on the number of implants supporting the temporary teeth. The more implants supporting the temporary teeth, the more function a patient can have on the temporary.

Single implants should have no chewing function but the immediate temporary usually creates better esthetics (looks.) Full arch temporizes can have full function on them with some limitation in diet.
