Immediate Load Implants, or teeth-in-a-day, have no waiting period and missing teeth can be placed immediately!
Benefits of Teeth-in-a-Day Include:
Teeth-in-a-Day is one of the newest innovations in technology concerning dental implants. Teeth-in-a-Day eliminates the often required multiple office visits and waiting period in between dental implant procedures. Teeth-in-a-Day allows patients to not have to choose between dentures vs. dental implants.
Dentures and implants hold similar characteristics in that they both can be partial or full mouth and both are viable options for tooth replacement. However, dentures lack some of the benefits that come with dental implants. Dentures rest on top of the gums and can slip or slide out of place when eating, drinking or talking that can be embarrassing. Resting on top of the gums also causes a more significant problem by not stimulating the jaw bone like a natural tooth and root system would. Without stimulation the jaw bone density diminishes over time, affecting your facial structure.
Implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone, mimicking a natural tooth and root system and stimulating the jawbone. This prevents bone deterioration. Implants will not slip or slide out of place. They are stable and fixed in the mouth.
Traditional implants differ from Teeth-in-a-Day in the amount of time they take to be completed. Traditional implants must be left undisturbed for four to six months after the initial placement before the dental crown can be placed. While traditional implants have a high success rate, the waiting period between procedures can be inconvenient and even difficult in some cases.
