What Are the Benefits of Same Day Dental Implants
- Posted on: Feb 19 2020
Why Choose Same-Day Implants?
Same-day dental implants involve a two-step procedure:
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.
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?
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.
