Hi Naaz,

Being within 2mm of the nerve is considered safe. The training, skill, experience and judgement of your dentist during the procedure is most crucial for a great outcome.

I'm sure you will do fine. :)

Some implants are placed to within 0.5mm of the nerve under tacticle sensation by very experienced implant dentists.

Hi Dr. Ramsey,

I was looking at your website and was wondering if you could give me a second opinion on decision I have to make very shortly and its weighing on my mind. My dentist is going to put an implant in my lower back molar and he says I have 2mm space from the nerve after the implant is put in. Is that enough space? I am 58 years old and otherwise in good health except for my WBC which is 3.5 (low). My surgery is on Aug 19th. My dentist is probably 60 years old and has been doing this for 5 years. I would really appreciate if you could give me some advice.
I hope I have posted this in the right spot, not very good at using the computer.
Thank you kindly
Naaz

Thank you for your frankness and ability to explain implants so well. I was apprehensive about an implant but I feel it would be best for me now that I have listened to your videos.

Hi Duane,

If the tooth is cracked, extracting it asap is generally best. Keep in mind that the implant may be able to be placed at the same time of the extraction. With that in mind, it would be good to see you before the extraction.

If an immediate implant can be done predictably, it will save you time and money.

What tooth is it?
