Same-Day Dental Implants
Are You a Candidate?
If you need a dental implant, the last thing you want to do is wait weeks or months to get it done. That’s why we offer same-day dental implants—however, not everyone is a candidate for this type of procedure. We can help you decide if same-day implants are right for you by evaluating your individual case and coming up with the best treatment plan possible.
Are Same-Day Dental Implants Right for Me?
Innovative Smiles wants to be transparent about the process of getting dental implants. For most patients, it takes several appointments over a period of time to ensure proper care and stability.
Dental implants are a viable option for patients who want to replace failing or missing teeth. Unlike cosmetic dental procedures, such as teeth whitening, which take only a few hours to complete and are performed in one visit, the dental implant process typically takes several months.
If your teeth have experienced significant decay, you may need multiple appointments for extractions and bone grafting before one or more implants can be placed. You may be eager to get a new smile and restore your mouth to full function, but taking the time needed to achieve your ideal result is more important.
The Best Candidates for Same-Day Dental Implants
Someone with good dental health and overall well-being is the best candidate for same-day dental implants. Because implants are anchored in the jawbone and connect to underlying gum tissue, a healthy mouth (i.e., healthy gum tissue and adequate jaw bone density) will provide the optimal environment for proper implant function.
Patients who meet these requirements and request a dental implant placed the same day as having one or more teeth extracted may undergo an “immediate dental implant” procedure. “Immediate loading” describes a process in which a crown or dental bridge is placed on the compromised tooth to restore its strength.
