Can You Get Dental Implants in One Day?

Can Teeth In A Day® in Raleigh give you a full smile in just a few hours? This may sound too good to be true, but it is, in fact, a reality thanks to advancements in technology. Tooth loss should not be taken lightly. The moment it happens, you should let your dentist know about it so you can discuss your options.

We understand that people would like to have their smile and oral function back as soon as possible, which is why Teeth In A Day® treatment is so popular. Since teeth a day are highly in demand, you’ll find all sorts of information about them online.

Some are true, while others are myths and misconceptions. Before you consider Teeth In A Day®, we suggest you learn about the facts – how they work, how safe they are, and what you can expect during the procedure.

Are They Too Good to Be True?

What Are Teeth In A Day®?

This treatment is also known as same-day dental implants. They are fast, reliable, and convenient, making them one of America’s most popular tooth restoration options. What makes them unique is you don’t have to wait for months to get your smile back. All it takes is just one appointment.

How is this possible? Everyone’s more familiar with traditional dental implants. We all know it’s a lengthy process that can take months to complete since you need to wait for successful osseointegration (the process where the implants fuse with your jawbone).

Besides osseointegration, if an affected tooth needs to be extracted, you’ll have to wait for another three to four months until the socket has healed completely. Only then will your oral surgeon be able to embed the implants.

Once embedded, the osseointegration process can stretch out between three to six months. After that period, the crowns are finally placed. The entire process can extend between six to ten months. Not everyone is willing to wait that long, and if you’re not the patient type, same-day dental implants may be a good choice for you. Teeth In A Day® procedures are quicker, and you only need to see your dentist around three times. The first is during the initial consultation, the second meeting is for the surgery, and the third one is for the follow-up checkup. However, the placement process itself is carried out in one visit. You don’t need to wait for months to have your smile restored.

What Are the Advantages of Teeth In A Day®?

Teeth In A Day® share more or less the same success rates as traditional dental implants, so you shouldn’t worry about them being unreliable. Other advantages include the following:

  • Saves you time. You can leave the dental office with a brand-new smile.
  • Research shows that the implants integrate faster with your bone tissues.
  • Faster healing of your gum tissues.
  • Implants fill in the extraction sockets to help keep bacteria at bay.

How Do They Work?

The duration of the procedure will depend on the number of implants you need. Although your smile is restored as soon as you leave, you’ll be wearing temporary teeth while waiting for your permanent teeth. But even if they are just temporary teeth, at least you’ll leave with a complete smile.

They do share one thing in common with traditional implants – they also need your jaw and gum tissues to heal. The dental crowns will not be placed until your oral tissues are entirely healed. Once that’s achieved, you will receive your permanent teeth.

What Are the Different Types of  Implants?

Single-Tooth Dental Implants

A single-tooth dental implant consists of one false tooth. The titanium screw-shaped post must first be embedded in your jawbone to function as an artificial tooth root. Once it is in place, the crown is added next.

The crown can be made from porcelain or ceramic to achieve a more realistic look. The fascinating thing about a single-tooth dental implant is that it is ingeniously designed to mimic the look of natural teeth.

Full-Arch Dental Implants

If you’ve lost all your teeth in one arch, your dentist will recommend a full-arch dental implant.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are dentures transformed into implants through the attachment of abutments to the bottom portion. Abutments are connectors typically seen in implants used to attach the artificial teeth to the titanium posts.

“Amazing office. The dentists here do great work. Replaced four of my front teeth with veneers and worked with me (for free) when the treatment plan didn’t go exactly as expected due to my chronic bruxism. They always explain what they’re doing, and why. I thoroughly trust this team with my dental care.”
- Jeff Wilson
“My dental assistant is Gloria, who is always super friendly, masterfully efficient and skilled, and amazing at answering all of my questions and anticipating anything out of the ordinary that Dr. Leo may need for his evaluation. Dr. Leo is my fabulous dentist who is also very friendly, skilled and efficient, takes whatever time is needed for my evaluation and questions, and provides honest assessment. He runs a high caliber business that has been consistently pleasant, remains way ahead of the technology, and the entire office is always extremely clean and bright. Highest regards and recommendations!”

“I just moved to the area and needed to find a new dentist. After looking through tons of reviews, I settled on this dentist, and after my visit decided that this place will be my new go-to! The doctor was fantastic. Was so thorough, took the time to explain to me what was going on with my teeth, always checking to make sure that I was doing okay, and was so friendly and caring. I would recommend them to anyone. I’ll be back.”
- Ashley K.
“Excellent and knowledgeable staff! The doctors are the best and understood my unique TMD challenges. Because of this, my bite was corrected and I no longer have pain. Wonderful!”
- Donna Pygott
“I had neglected my dental care for over 20 years due to fear of the whole process. I took a leap of faith and went to this office and I am so glad I did. They understood my situation and moved forward without making me feel bad. It was an 8 month marathon of dental work. I had fillings, cleanings, wisdom teeth removed, an extraction and a wonderful implant put in. I was a hard patient to work with and the whole crew was nice to me every step of the way. Years from now when I still have my teeth I’ll have this place to thank. They fixed me up now and destroyed my fear of the dentist office for the future.”
- Jay P.
“Had another wonderful experience at Tryon Family Dentistry today! I felt safe during this pandemic due to the constant cleaning/disinfecting I observed. Everyone there goes out of their way to ensure your comfort and address any/all questions you may have.”
