Same-Day Tooth Replacement
We understand that many of our patients are busy people with full schedules. We know that it can be difficult to find the time to schedule dental procedures, especially if the treatment you
need might require multiple visits to our office.
We don’t want anyone to sacrifice dental health for their schedule, which is why we offer same-day dental implants at our office. You will still be able to enjoy a complete, healthy smile, but you also won’t have to worry about trying to schedule multiple visits to the dentist.
What Is a Same-Day Tooth Replacement?
A same-day tooth replacement is just one of many tooth replacement options available to you at our office, with all of the same benefits as a standard tooth implant. Your same-day dental
implant will be able to replace a missing or badly damaged tooth to complete your smile and keep your jaw healthy and strong.
When you’re missing a permanent tooth, the jawbone underneath that missing tooth can weaken, and the neighboring teeth can shift in place, causing a crooked bite. Getting a tooth implant as soon as possible can solve both of these issues before they have time to develop.
Just like a traditional dental implant, a same-day tooth replacement uses a small titanium rod or screw that is placed directly into the jawbone in the space where a permanent tooth should be. Once a crown is placed on top of this titanium rod and allowed to heal, the tooth implant will look and act just like a natural tooth.
How Is a Same-Day Tooth Replacement Different From a Regular Tooth Implant?
Since the basics of the dental implant procedure are essentially the same between dental implants and same-day dental implants, what makes one process so much faster than the other?
When you’re receiving a traditional dental implant, your dentist will generally split this treatment into two separate visits. During your first visit, your dentist will place the implant into your jaw. Your implant will then be left alone to heal. At your second visit, your dentist will place a crown on top of the implant.
With same-day dental implants, your dentist will be able to place the dental implant and cap it with a temporary crown immediately. While you’ll have to replace the temporary crown with a permanent one eventually, same-day dental technology makes it possible for you to arrive in our office and leave with a complete smile on the same day.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Same-Day Dental Implants?
Your dentist might not recommend same-day dental implants if you’re experiencing gum disease, poor dental hygiene, or bruxism. However, the biggest indicator of whether same-day dental
implants will be a good fit for you is your jawbone. In order to place any tooth implant, your jawbone must be strong enough to support it.
If your jaw is not ready for a dental implant, you may need a jawbone graft before you can get that new tooth. While this might prevent you from getting your tooth implant on the same day you come to our office, you can still get your smile repaired!
If you’ve got the right jawbone density and good dental health overall, you’ll most likely be eligible for same-day dental implants. But just like any medical or dental procedure will have certain limitations on who can receive it, not everyone will be a good candidate for same-day dental implants.
The best (and only) way to know for sure whether same-day dental implants are right for you personally is to talk to your dentist here at Arlington Dentistry by Design. Even if same-day implants aren’t a good fit for you, we will help you find a solution that can address your needs. We are committed to making sure our patients leave our office with healthy teeth and a smile they love.
