Same Day Dental Implants
With conventional implant procedures patients often have to wear removable full or partial dentures while their gums, bone and implants are healing. This process can take up to 6 months. However, in some clinical situations you can have your smile restored in a single visit with our same day dental implants or ‘Same Day Teeth’ procedure.
How do Same Day Dental Implants work?
As with the traditional technique, with the Same Day Teeth procedure the failed teeth are extracted, however the implants are then placed and fitted with a temporary fixed bridge on the same day. You don’t have to worry about wearing dentures while waiting for your implants to heal – with same day dental implants you are fitted with a set of fixed, natural-looking temporary teeth that are designed to speed up the healing process.
The temporary bridge is replaced with a permanent bridge after 3 months once the gums have completely healed.
