Same day dental implants are a treatment whereby cosmetically your smile can be restored on the same day as the implant is fitted into your jaw.
This is done by using shortened crowns. On our Implants page we look at how an implant is made up of three parts, the visible part being the crown. The shortened crown means that you can visually see a tooth in place, however because it is shorter than the teeth surrounding it, it will have less pressure applied to it when eating, ideally no pressure should be applied to it at all.
This reduced pressure is important, and why same day implants are cosmetic in nature rather than a permanent solution. The shortened crown will have to be replaced once the implant has healed.
Having a tooth replaced via an implant isn’t a quick process, when an implant is put into your jaw, it will take time for the bone around it to heal and fully secure the implant in place. Pressure applied to the implant can hinder or damage this healing process.
Are they permanent?
The implant itself with appropriate oral hygiene and dental visits can last for 20+ years. The crown, or visible part of the tooth however, is not permanent. A temporary crown is put in place that is shorter than the surrounding teeth, while the area surrounding implant heals. Once healed a full-size crown would need to be made and put in place.
This is something to keep in mind when seeking same day implants, as the temporary crown would have a cost associated with it, and the full-size final version would then be an additional cost.
Not everyone is suitable for same day implants. They are for the most part only suitable for people who are having an implant due to emergency damage where a healthy tooth has been broken in an accident, meaning the supporting bone structure is in ideal condition to accept an implant.
When most patients seek implants, it is due to teeth that have deteriorated significantly, and in many cases the surrounding area. When the teeth or the surrounding bone are in a deteriorated state then the treatment will require additional services such as bone graft. If patients in these situations were to try and have same day implants, it can lead to a high chance of failure.
