Am I a Candidate for Same-Day Teeth Implants?
Not everyone is right for same-day dental implant surgery. Our dental professional will evaluate you to see if you meet the right criteria for this advanced type of dental implant. Candidates for this procedure must:
- Have sufficient bone density where the implant will be placed.
- Not have medical conditions that could impact bone healing.
- Display healthy oral tissue.
If you want an immediate functional and cosmetic outcome, and you do not grind your teeth, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.
If I Cannot Get One-Day Dental Implants, What Are My Options?
You can get a delayed implant placement instead. The procedure occurs three to six months after we have extracted your tooth. We recommend this option for those who have a severe infection or lack of bone in the jaw to hold the implant. Will you need to walk around without a tooth until we can schedule the implant? No. We have other temporary options for a missing tooth available to you.
How Can I Close the Gap While My Implant Heals?
To temporarily hold the place of your missing tooth, you may opt for:
- A bonded false tooth.
- An Essex retainer, which is made from clear plastic and includes a replacement for missing teeth.
- A removable denture if you have multiple teeth missing.
- A removable flipper, as pictured above.
Pros and Cons of Same-Day Dental Implants
There are many benefits to getting same-day dental implants. The treatment has made great gains since the 1950s, when the treatment for missing teeth usually consisted of dentures or a removable bridge. In the 1960s, fixed bridgework became popular, and people with missing teeth could get the prosthesis placed permanently in their mouths. The only issue was that the healthy teeth on each side of the missing tooth needed to be ready to hold the bridge.
Dental implants became popular in the 1990s, and they gave patients an entirely new and more effective treatment option. Single teeth could be replaced easily regardless of their placement in the mouth.
The advantages of dental implants include:
- Minimally invasive procedures.
- Maintaining bone levels.
- Preserving the structural integrity of nearby teeth.
The technology has come far in a short time. Your implant surgery will give you replacement teeth that look natural and have a similar cost as traditional dental implants. The only downside to same-day dental implants is that not all our patients qualify for them.
