Dental implants not only provide unmatched support for your replacement and remaining teeth, but they also can help preserve your jawbone’s strength and structure. However, traditional implants take up to six months to complete! What if you need a confident smile more quickly? Same-day implants may be right for you.
Same-day implants offer the same comprehensive benefits as traditional implants, with one noticeable difference: you only need to visit our office for one oral surgery appointment and can enjoy a full smile right away.
You’ll also enjoy the general benefits of implants:
For optimal results, we require same-day dental implant candidates to meet a strict set of criteria, including specific levels of:
Our oral surgeon will evaluate your teeth and bone structure to determine your candidacy for same-day implants and create a custom plan for your oral surgery and dental restoration. If you aren’t a candidate, you may qualify for traditional dental implants.
If you qualify for same-day tooth replacement, our team will schedule your oral surgery, which is performed in the comfort of our office, surrounded by familiar faces.
You’ll arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to complete consent forms. Then, a friendly oral surgery team member will take you to our treatment room to prepare you for the procedure.
If you opt for IV sedation, an anesthesiologist will administer medication to help you stay relaxed and comfortable during the procedure. If you do not choose IV sedation, your oral surgeon will strategically apply local anesthetic to your mouth.
Your same-day dental implant procedure will take between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the number of titanium posts to be implanted. Our oral surgeon will top your titanium post or posts with a temporary dental crown.
If you received IV sedation, you’ll remain in the treatment room under observation for 30 minutes. If you did not receive sedation, your procedure is complete until your next visit, when you receive your permanent dental crown.
With same-day dental implants, you can enjoy the benefits of an implant-supported prosthetic tooth and receive smile restoration, without having to wait months before seeing the results.
