Same-day teeth, also known as immediate load dental implants, are a type of dental implant treatment that allows patients to receive dental implants and a tooth replacement bridge on the same day of their dental implant surgery. This technique is typically used for patients who have a terminal dental condition and healthy jawbone.
Traditionally, the dental implant procedure requires several months of healing between the implant placement and the attachment of the new teeth. However, with same-day teeth, patients can have their missing or damaged teeth replaced in just one visit to the implant dentist.
Procedure at Salisbury Dental Implant Centre
This is achieved by the implant dentist at Salisbury Dental Implant Centre by using specialized techniques, including computer-guided surgery and customized prosthetics, to streamline the implant procedure and eliminate the waiting period. Same-day teeth is a well-documented, convenient and less time-consuming option for those who need fixed bridges on dental implants.
History of All-on-4 Dental Implant Technique
The All-on-4 dental implant technique was developed by Dr.Paulo Malo, a Portuguese dentist, in the 1990s. Dr.Malo was looking for a way to provide patients with a full set of teeth that were both stable and comfortable. He discovered that by angling two of the dental implants in the back of the mouth, he could provide a stable foundation for a full arch of teeth using only four implants. This technique has since been refined and has become a popular solution for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth.
Benefits and Application
The All-on-4 technique is typically recommended by our implant dentist at South Wilts Implant Centre for patients who have lost their teeth due to any type of condition, like periodontal disease, injury, or decay. It is considered a safe, effective solution for replacing missing teeth, it can help improve a patient's oral health, speech, and confidence and scientific studies showed similar rates of success as any other implant treatments.
Same-day Teeth Procedure
During the same-day teeth procedure, the dental implant is placed by the dentist Salisbury into the jawbone, and a temporary tooth replacement, such as a dental bridge or denture, is attached to the implant. This allows the patient to leave the private dental practice with a functional and aesthetically pleasing tooth replacement on the same day as their surgery.
The term "teeth in a day" implies that a patient can have a full set of teeth replaced in a single day, but this is not always the case. The number of teeth that can be replaced by a private implant dentist in a single day depends on several factors, including the patient's oral health, the quality and quantity of the remaining jawbone, and the complexity of the case.
Considerations for Same-day Teeth
Teeth in a day or same-day teeth can be a good, cheap tooth implant option for patients who want to avoid the discomfort and inconvenience of a long healing period before receiving their permanent tooth replacement. It is important to note that, while the temporary tooth replacement provides immediate functionality and aesthetics, it is not a permanent solution and will need to be replaced with a permanent restoration after the dental implant has fully integrated with the jawbone.
This procedure involves the placement of four to six titanium implants into the jawbone, which acts as the foundation for a set of fixed replacement teeth. The implants are strategically positioned to maximize support and stability, which allows for a full set of replacement teeth to be attached immediately after the procedure.
The All-on-4 technique was developed as a solution for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth, have a terminal dental condition and do not want to wear removable dentures. With this procedure, patients can leave the dental practice with a full set of new teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
One of the main advantages of same-day teeth is that it allows patients to avoid the discomfort and inconvenience of waiting for several months for the dental implant to heal and fuse with the jawbone before receiving their permanent tooth replacement. Instead, patients can immediately benefit from a tooth replacement that looks and functions like their natural teeth.
Consultation and Suitability
It's important to consult with an experienced implant dentist to determine if same-day teeth are the best tooth replacement option for your individual needs as not all patients are suitable candidates for All-on-4 treatment. If the patient is a suitable candidate, the implant dentist or oral surgeon will create a treatment plan, which may include dental X-rays, CT scans, impressions, and other diagnostic tests.
Fast and Fixed Technique
Other terms to describe same-day teeth treatment are “teeth in a day”, “immediate load” dental implant technique or our preferred dental implant option, “Fast&Fixed” with a budget cost for implant teeth. In all situations, a temporary tooth or bridge replacement is attached to the implant or implants that are placed on the same day as the implant surgery.
The term "Fast and Fixed" implies that the procedure can be completed quickly and that the prosthesis is fixed or permanent. This technique is typically used for patients who have experienced significant tooth loss or who have a compromised jawbone. It can be a good option for patients who want to avoid the inconvenience and discomfort of traditional dentures or who want a more stable tooth replacement option. The fast and fixed technique typically involves a two-stage process. During the first stage, the dental implants are placed into the jawbone. During the second stage, a fixed dental prosthesis is attached to the implants. The prosthesis is custom-made to match the patient's natural teeth and is designed to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Both stages are completed on the same day. The cost for implant teeth varies with the number of dental implants, the implant system used and the type of permanent bridge.
