Teeth in a Day Procedure Vs. Traditional Implants
Traditional Implant Procedure
With traditional implants, your damaged teeth are first removed and then you must wait several months for these open wounds to heal. During this first healing period you will need to wear a denture.
The implants are then surgically placed into the jawbone. At this point, you must wait another several months for the bone to fully heal and grow around the implants before your final crowns are placed.
In total, the implant procedure can take up to 10 months.
Teeth in a Day Procedure
With this procedure, you will also need to have a titanium post inserted directly into your jaw but this is done during the same visit when your teeth are removed. Temporary crowns will also then be placed over your implants which eliminates the need for dentures.
After the gums and jawbone have healed around the new implants, you will get your permanent crowns placed.
Potential Risks and Considerations of Teeth in a Day
Same day dental implants obviously have a multitude of benefits but they are not without their potential drawbacks.
Here are some factors to consider when choosing between traditional implants and teeth in a day implants.
Those with Compromised Immune Systems
Teeth in a day can put more strain on the immune system since you will not have a healing period in between tooth removal and the implant being placed. Due to this, those with compromised immune systems may do better with traditional implants.
While both traditional and same day implants require a certain amount of caution while healing, same day, in particular, requires you to adhere to a soft diet while the implant fuses with the bone. Typically, you will need to avoid hard or crunchy foods for at least 8 weeks.
