What Are the Benefits of Same Day Dental Implants

People in Long Island who are dealing with missing teeth may wonder how they can solve the problem and restore their appearance. However, these temporary solutions can be uncomfortable and challenging to wear, especially over time. Dental implants provide an appealing alternative; they are permanent teeth that integrate directly with your jaw to replace a missing tooth or several teeth and present a natural, beautiful appearance. The comfort of dental implants mean that people do not worry about singing, eating or talking; they feel and work just like natural teeth.

Why Choose Same-Day Implants?

However, some people may be concerned that the dental implant process takes a long time, and they may have to live with the appearance of missing teeth for some time to come until the implant procedure is completed. At Island Dental Associates, our experienced, skilled dentists offer same-day dental implants fabricated in our on-site dental laboratory. You can improve your oral health and your confidence in one day, without leaving a gap in your smile.

Same-day dental implants involve a two-step procedure:

1

Dental implants, consisting of titanium and shaped as a screw, are inserted into the upper or lower jaw bone, depending on the location of your missing teeth.

2

A bridge, crown or replacement tooth is then attached securely to the implant to create a replacement for your missing tooth or teeth.

The dental implant procedure is surgery, but it is one that most patients experience with minimal pain and disruption. Because a crown will be placed on the same day as the implant, you’ll have perfectly fitting, natural-feeling replacement teeth without dealing with inconvenience, discomfort or a poor fit.

In the past, dental implant procedures could not be completed in one day; instead, more time was needed to allow the implant area to heal and the implant itself to fully integrate with the jawbone. This is one reason why many people are surprised to learn that Island Dental Associates can offer its patients new teeth in one day with our specialized on-site laboratory.

Am I a Good Candidate for Same-Day Dental Implants?

Advancements in dental implant technology mean that you can receive temporary teeth right away at the same time that the implants are placed. While these teeth are temporary, they are strong and have a natural look and feel. Your custom, permanent teeth can be placed once your implants have fully fused with your jawbone for a completely permanent solution to your missing teeth.

You may be a good candidate for same-day dental implants in Long Island if you:

  • Want an immediate solution to your dental concerns
  • Are experiencing tooth loss in one or more places
  • Have sufficient bone density in your jaw
  • Have an overall healthy mouth and oral region
    Want a different option from removable, poorly fitting dentures
  • Avoid grinding your teeth
  • Are seeking a permanent, lifetime solution to missing teeth

People who do not have sufficient bone density to receive implants in one day can still enjoy the natural, beautiful results of dental implants. Your Long Island dentist will perform a bone graft procedure to ensure that your implants produce the long-lasting, permanent results you desire.

Same-day dental implants can even work for you if you want to replace an entire set of teeth on the upper or lower jaw. Your dentist can offer implant-based solutions that provide a complete, permanent solution without a traditional denture. Many people feel as if their confidence and pride in their smile is restored with the presence of a full set of implant dentures on the upper or lower half of the mouth.
