Dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking solution for missing teeth. Millions of patients restore their smiles with implants every year. However, some patients don’t have time for the three to six month healing period that’s required after implant surgery.
For these patients, Dr. Grubb is happy to offer New Teeth in One Day, also known as immediate load dental implants. Explore our guide to learn how this treatment option can provide a full set of new teeth in just one appointment.
Immediate load implants offer several benefits that traditional implants can’t match, including:
Since this option skips the recovery process when your implant normally fuses with your jawbone, you need to have plenty of healthy bone tissue to qualify. Patients who suffer from jawbone deterioration or gum recession will need supplemental procedures to prepare for surgery.
As a result, New Teeth in One Day is best for patients with strong jawbones.
Immediate-load dental implants have stricter requirements for jawbone health and dental hygiene. Most patients with sufficient jawbone mass and no outstanding health or hygiene issues will be eligible for a New Teeth in One Day procedure.
Some patients may be good overall candidates for dental implants, but more reliably treated in phases rather than with a one-day surgery. This may mean receiving a bone or tissue graft before undergoing a New Teeth in One Day procedure or opting instead for the traditional implant process. During your consultation, Dr. Grubb will determine any risk factors that could preclude you from an immediate-load dental implant procedure.
You will experience no pain during your New Teeth in One Day procedure thanks to the careful application of IV sedation. Your total healing time is reduced in comparison to traditional dental implants because you’ll only have one operation to recover from. Any discomfort experienced during at-home healing will be safely manageable with over the counter anti-inflammatories or prescribed medication as appropriate.
Dr. Grubb will keep you informed of how to manage your condition in the days and weeks following your operation to avoid complications or undue discomfort. You’ll also be provided contact information in the event that you require additional care or advice on pain management.
For an approved candidate, immediate-load dental implants should not present significant additional risk of failure or complications. In many cases, the immediate loading of dental implants can actually reduce recovery time and promote the healthy growth of gum tissue around your new teeth.
Dr. Grubb will take every measure to ensure that you don’t receive treatment that presents an undue risk to your health and comfort. Contact us to schedule a consultation and see if you’re a good candidate for New Teeth in One Day.
If you want to enjoy the benefits of dental implants without waiting months for your new smile, New Teeth in One Day could be the right choice for you. When you visit us for an initial consultation, Dr. Grubb will examine your teeth and jaw to determine the best treatment option for you.
