Typically, dental implants are required to heal for 6 weeks to several months before they can be used to support new teeth.
Our office utilizes a procedure known as “immediate loading” to predictably and immediately replace missing teeth.
This method can be used for single teeth and even up to an entire mouth of teeth, upper or lower, with comfort, stability and esthetics. It is possible to perform extractions simultaneously. Patients can leave the office with a completely new set of resin based provisional teeth.
Remarkably, patients respond to extraction, implant placement and restoration in the some appointment with little to no swelling, discomfort or interruption of their daily life. It has been documented that there is a 99.5% success rate for individual implants and a 100% for interim fixed bridges and subsequent permanent teeth.
Our doctors have trained with some of the world’s pioneers in this field and is one of the first and still only offices in the area to offer this to patients.
Not all patient’s are candidates for “Teeth-In-A-Day.” Conventional implant protocols are followed for patients who are not candidates.
