Understanding How Same Day Dental Implants Can Work For You
Did you know that same day dental implants are available that could allow you to leave the dental office with beautiful, function teeth after just a short time in the chair? Everything can be done in a single visit when you choose one of the same day dental implants options available now.
Mounted on just four, five or six implants in most cases, single visit dental implants support a fixed prosthesis. It’s a smart choice when you’re ready to move up from your removable dentures or when you’re facing extractions and don’t know which restoration option is right for you.
After an assessment and consultation, you can visit our office for a single day of treatment and leave with permanent implants and a non-removable, fixed denture that serves as permanent replacement teeth for you.
Success rates are high, pain is minimal and the treatment can restore the complete upper or lower arch – or both. Same day dental implants are being used more often today because they save time, money and hassles and provide excellent results.
Here are more details about same day dental implants:
X-rays and a CT scan are usually the first steps. The scan creates a 3D model that provides most of the information necessary to plan your single visit dental implants and non-removable prosthesis. A surgical guide is then created that directs the implant placement. Fixed provisional teeth are created that are attached to your new implants on the same day as the surgery to install the implants.
When you come in for your implant surgery, everything is prepared for you. That means:
• We’re ready to extract any remaining teeth that need to be extracted.
• Planning regarding the length, diameter and number of dental implants as well as their locations has been done.
• A precise surgical guide created by a master technician has been made based on the 3D model provide by the CT scan.
• Provisional teeth are ready to be inserted as soon as the implant surgery is complete.
• Anesthesia is ready for you so you won’t have to deal with anything during the surgery.
