Are One Day Implants Right for You?

What Are One-Day Implants?

To explain the benefits of one-day implants, it is important to know that traditional dental implants can take months to place. Dental implants are made up of a titanium post, which serves as the “roots” of your new tooth. The post is placed in the jaw bone, and over time the two fuse together. On top of the post an abutment is placed, which connects the new artificial tooth to the post.

The reason that the process for getting a traditional implant takes so long is because it can take months for the post and the jawbone to fuse, and this step has to be completed before the artificial tooth can be placed. With one-day implants, as the name implies, the process is completed within one day. The post and the bone still have to fuse, but this happens as you are using your new “temporary” teeth.

Like traditional implants, one-day implants look and feel natural. They are durable but easy to care for – you simply brush and floss regularly, as you do with your natural teeth. You will be given special dietary instructions to make sure that your one-day implants and the bone have a chance to fuse together properly; you will be given a list of foods to avoid for about 4 months. This means a soft diet so that you don’t put pressure on this implant while it is integrating with the bone.

Can Everyone Get One Day Implants?

Unfortunately, one-day implants aren’t for everyone. The patient must have jawbone that is dense enough to provide support for the implant. Your dentist will evaluate your bone health, your remaining teeth, and your oral structure to determine if one-day implants will work or if another option might be better.

If you are missing a tooth, the staff at Hampton Dental Associates in Milwaukee can discuss with you your different options. One-day implants have many benefits, and they might just be the right choice for you. Call (414) 464-9021 today to make an appointment!
