What Are Same Day Dental Implants?

Same day dental implants or Same Day Smile refers to the placement of loading/placement of implants and attachment of teeth restorations within the same day. Same Day dental implants can successfully provide solutions for missing teeth in a single appointment, without the waiting time that spans a few months that is associated with traditional dental implants.

What’s Involved in Same Day Implants & Teeth?

A complete evaluation of the patient will be done before the Same Day dental implants placement can proceed, to determine the suitability of this procedure. The diagnostics may or may include getting x-rays or CT scans, as well as impressions of the patient’s teeth/mouth area; the consultation will also include formulating a detailed treatment plan specifically for the patient’s needs. After determining that the patient is suited for to have Same Day dental implants, the surgical procedure will be scheduled. Dental implants will be placed without the need for bone grafts (should the patient have insufficient bone mass), and the teeth restorations fitted and positioned – all within the same day.

Why Do I Need Same Day Dental Implants?

Same Day dental implants are great in providing quick solutions to missing teeth in a less-invasive way, because the need for a bone grafting procedure is eliminated. The dental implants can be placed, along with the teeth restoration, within a single visit to the implant dentist – there is no need to wait for months to fully enjoy the implants and the restorations. It is possible to have the implants and teeth restorations placed earlier in the day, and be able to enjoy the form and function of natural teeth within the same day.

What Are the Benefits of Same Day Dental Teeth Implants?

As the name suggests, Same Day dental implants enable the patient to enjoy the form and function of teeth restorations within the same day that the implants are placed. This procedure eliminates the waiting/healing period that involves a number of months, before the teeth restorations can be attached. Same day dental implants provide quick, efficient and less-invasive solutions to missing teeth.

What Are the Alternatives to Same Day Dental Implants?

Traditional dental implants provide solutions to missing teeth, involving a few month’s waiting time from the period after the implants are loaded, to the time the teeth restorations can be attached. In cases when the patient’s bone mass is deemed insufficient to support the implants, a bone grafting procedure may be needed as well.

Dentures can also provide alternative solutions to missing teeth, and can be for people who do not want to go through any surgical procedure of any kind (after tooth extraction). The form and function of traditional dentures without the stabilising support of dental implants, however, have a big difference compared to implant-supported dentures or bridges.

How Much Can Same Day Dental Implants Cost?

The cost of same day dental implants will depend on these factors:

•    The location of the implant dentist’s clinic
•    The skills and experience of the implant dentist
•    Materials used for the final teeth restoration
•    Diagnostics and implants system used for the whole procedure

Quality Same Day dental implants can range from approximately £1800 to £2600 for each dental implant.
