Same Day Dental Implants
Dental implants do not have to be a long, drawn-out procedure. On the contrary, same day dental implants offer a quick solution for those looking to fill the space left by a missing tooth. As the name implies, these dental implants can be placed in the course of a single visit, restoring the function and appearance of your smile in a way that looks natural and takes the least amount of time out of your busy schedule.
Thanks to the latest advancements in dental technology, Dr. Dyer’s state-of-the-art dental implant technique replaces missing, decayed or damaged teeth in as little as one day.
Dr. Dyer will first carefully study your jaw using a high resolution 3D CT scan. This scan provides a detailed look at which areas are best suited for placing your dental implants. Next, your dental implants are placed directly into your existing tooth site. While your implants are being placed, a lab technician customizes your provisional teeth, which may be placed on the same day as your dental implant surgery.
Implants can be cared for in much the same way as natural teeth. Brush and floss as instructed by your dentist and get regular checkups to maintain the health of your teeth, implants, and gums.
Same day dental implants are customized to fit your smile for a natural-looking tooth replacement solution in just one visit. Traditional implants usually require removable dentures to be worn for several months after the implant procedure. These removable dentures may hurt and do not provide the same fit and durability as other solutions. With same-day dental implants, you spend less time in the dentist’s office, have far fewer maintenance requirements than dentures, and can eat all your favorite foods soon after placement. Same-day dental implants also cause less damage to the jaw and existing teeth compared to other options, and they have been used for many years and have a strong record of success.
Dental implants offer a lasting tooth replacement solution, are easy to care for, and require significantly less time to complete than traditional methods of tooth replacement. If you are missing teeth, same-day dental implants may be the right solution for you. If you have any questions about your dental implant options, give us a call at 281-980-2344.
