The advances in dental implants are amazing, we can now give you teeth in a single day.
In all my time in dentistry, and more specifically in the world of dental implants, there is no doubt that one of the most important breakthroughs for patients in both technology and surgical innovation, is our ability to deliver teeth within the space of a day.
Whereas having an implant to replace decaying or damaged teeth necessarily means several dental appointments new procedures, now mean that we can condense the number of surgical appointments into just one.
Traditionally implants would need to be left to heal for between 2-4 months, in specific cases we can place the implants, fit the posts, and deliver a full mouth of teeth in one sitting. The implants still need to heal, but there is good medical evidence to show that if they are all joined together they will heal well. It is often the case that after healing, a second set of teeth are fitted to replace the “immediate ” set.
So, now the inconvenience of several months of work can be condensed into one day
When you consider that one of the biggest advantages of teeth in a single day treatments is not having to wear temporary dentures, the benefits are clear – some temporary dentures can look unnatural, and may well loosen and end up falling out.
However, I must add a note of caution, for anyone thinking that teeth in a day is the must have treatment. It isn’t for everyone. We can only begin this treatment providing that your gums are free form infection, and that there is of course, sufficient bone to place the implants and that its right for you!
