Several phrases have been used to describe different dental implant treatment options in recent years, such as Same Day Implant Teeth, All-on-4, Teeth In a Day, Immediate implants, teeth In An Hour and etc. Although these phrases are meant to describe different dental treatment procedure, quite often they may cause confusion for general public.
The purpose of this article is to describe Same Day Implant Teeth procedure. We will definitely write about other treatment options in the future
“Same Day Implant Teeth” refers to replacement of missing teeth with implant teeth in just one visit. This may be one tooth, several teeth, or full mouth teeth replacement. This is a very powerful motivational phrase for people who have lost their teeth. It would almost be like a dream to get all your lost teeth back in just one day.
Same Day Implant Teeth procedure is definitely a reality and is routinely done by dental implant dentists. Patients should be carefully screened for this procedure and not everyone is a candidate. For example this may not be possible for a particular patient who has infected teeth or severe jaw bone deterioration (bone loss).
Patients with advanced periodontal disease and severe teeth mobility should first undergo treatments to remove their teeth, cure all infection, and necessary bone and gum grafting procedures, before dental implants can be placed and restored with teeth. It is quite obvious that all this cannot be done in one visit.
Patients with dentures, particularly those who have lost their teeth several years ago, have severe jaw bone deterioration. Such Patients may first need bone grafting to restore the jaw bone .
Good candidates for Same day Implant Teeth treatment should have adequate and good quality jaw bone and gum. This is the most important qualifying criteria. Patients should also be in healthy condition, or at least have their medical condition under control.
Overall, the Same Day Implant Teeth procedure is a great treatment approach and regardless if it is done in just one visit or several visits, it will have a life changing result. I hear, over and over, from patients, whom I have done this treatment for, that their life has been positively enhanced.
