Teeth in a Day

Teeth-in-a-Day, or Immediate Load Dental Implants, are the newest innovation in dental implant technology. In most dental implant cases, patients are required to have multiple office visits and must wait months before having a permanent implant placed. With immediate load implants, patients can walk in and out of the doctors office with a full set of teeth!


Traditional Dental Implant vs. Teeth-in-a-Day

Traditional implants must be left undisturbed for 4-6 months before healing and growth will allow for the tooth to be replaced. This waiting period allows osseointegration to take place between the tooth and implant. The result is a strong, stable implant. However, traditional implants require multiple surgeries (one to place the implant and one to uncover the implant from under the gumline after 6 months). During the waiting period, patients may be forced to wear a bridge or denture-or worse-be without a tooth. While traditional dental implants have a high success rate, the waiting period makes this treatment option difficult especially in the case of an emergency.

Immediate Load Implants, or teeth-in-a-day, have no waiting period and missing teeth can be placed immediately! As soon as the surgery to place the implant has been completed the doctor can place a restoration piece without the required 6-month waiting period. You can walk out of your appointment with a new tooth that will function normally the same day! Plus, the procedure usually takes only an hour.

Immediate load implants can also be placed immediately after an extraction. Imagine walking in and out with all of your teeth!


Do I Qualify for Immediate Load Dental Implants?

Not all patients will qualify for immediate load implants. It is important for your doctor to perform the procedure only on patients who fulfill the criteria necessary to ensure maximum success. Your doctor will perform a thorough exam to determine if you qualify for immediate load dental implants.
