Same day dental implants

IN NORTH PALM BEACH, FL

Risks of Same Day Dental Implants

There are some risks associated with same day implants. These risks include:

  • Increased risk of implant failure: Because the implants are not given as much time to osseointegrate (fuse) with the bone, there is an increased risk of implant failure.
  • Need for a longer healing period: Patients who have same day implants may need to wear a temporary bridge or denture for several months while the implants fully osseointegrate.

Benefits of Same Day Implants

The main benefit of same day implants is that they can save patients time and inconvenience. Patients who have same day implants can usually return to their normal activities within a few days.

What is the Process for Same Day Implants?

Preoperative CT Scans

Before same day implants can be performed, preoperative CT scans are required. These scans allow the implant dentist to plan precisely where the implants will be inserted into the jawbone. The CT scans will also assess the bone density in the area where the implants will be placed.

Implant Surgery

The implant surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia. The dentist will remove the missing teeth and then insert the implants into the jawbone. The implants will then be allowed to heal for several months before the crowns are placed.

Crown Placement

Once the implants have healed, the crowns will be placed. The crowns are custom-made to match the patient’s natural teeth.

Same day implants, also known as immediate load implants, are a type of dental implant procedure that allows patients to receive their new teeth on the same day as their implant surgery. This can be a good option for patients who want to minimize disruption to their daily lives and who do not want to leave the office with missing teeth.

Determining if You're a Candidate

There are a few factors that can affect whether or not you are a good candidate for same day implants. These factors include:

  • Healthy oral tissue: Your gums and bone must be healthy enough to support the implants.
  • Adequate bone quantity and quality: There must be enough bone in the area where the implants will be placed.
  • No medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, can interfere with the healing process.

Talk to Your Dentist

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for same day implants is to talk to your dentist. Your dentist will examine your teeth, jaw, and mouth and assess your overall health. They will also discuss the risks and benefits of same day implants with you.

Immediate Load Implant Brands and Materials

Titanium

All of the dental implants these companies produce are manufactured using surgical grade titanium alloys. Titanium is an ideal material for dental implants because it is:

  • Non-corrosive: Titanium does not react with other materials, so it is not likely to corrode or rust.
  • Non-magnetic: Titanium is not magnetic, so it will not interfere with medical devices such as pacemakers.
  • Lightweight: Titanium is lightweight, making it comfortable for patients to wear.
  • Incredibly strong under stress: Titanium is incredibly strong under stress, so it can withstand the forces of chewing.
  • Very low fracture rates: Titanium has very low fracture rates, so it is unlikely to break.
  • Overall superior biocompatability: Titanium is biocompatible, which means that it is well-tolerated by the body.

Osteocytes

Osteocytes are bone cells that integrate well with titanium. When titanium is placed in the jawbone, osteocytes tend to grow towards the metal itself, thus creating a bond called osseointegration. Osseointegration is the process by which the implant fuses with the bone.

Preoperative Advice and Tips

Here are some of the do’s and don’ts that your dentist may recommend:

Do:

  • Brush your teeth prior to your appointment.
  • Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing.
  • Take any medications that your dentist has prescribed.

Don't:

  • Drink alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to the procedure.
  • Eat or drink anything prior to your appointment.
  • Smoke cigarettes or use tobacco products.

It is important to follow all of your dentist’s instructions precisely. Each directive is specifically designed to increase the chances of a successful procedure.

Bone Quality and Quantity

One of the most important factors in determining whether or not a patient is a good candidate for same day implants is bone quality and quantity. Bone density scans can help your dentist assess the amount and quality of bone available in the area where the implants will be placed. If you do not have enough bone, your dentist may recommend bone grafting to create a more solid base for the implants.

Benefits of Cone Beam Imaging

The use of cone beam imaging or other CT scans leads to several benefits, including:

  • Fewer risks: Cone beam imaging is a minimally invasive procedure that poses few risks to patients.
  • Safer implant procedures: Cone beam imaging allows your dentist to place the implants more precisely, which reduces the risk of complications.
  • Better outcomes: Cone beam imaging can help your dentist achieve better results with same day implants.

Cone Beam Imaging

Cone beam imaging is a type of CT scan that provides detailed 3-D images of the jawbone. This type of imaging is ideal for same day implants because it allows your dentist to see the bone in great detail and to precisely plan the placement of the implants.

Procedures

Local
Anesthesia

Local anesthesia is the most common type of anesthesia used for dental implant procedures. It numbs the treatment area so that the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure. Local anesthesia is safe and effective, and it is typically used for single-tooth implants or for implants that are placed in the front of the mouth.

Conscious Sedation

Conscious sedation is a type of anesthesia that allows the patient to remain awake during the procedure, but they are relaxed and do not feel any pain. Conscious sedation is often used for multiple-tooth implants or for implants that are placed in the back of the mouth.

General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is a type of anesthesia that puts the patient to sleep during the procedure. General anesthesia is typically used for patients who are very anxious or who have difficulty sitting still.

Anesthesia is Right for You?

The type of anesthesia that is right for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. If you are not sure which type of anesthesia is right for you, talk to us. We can help you decide which type of anesthesia is best for you.

Are You a Good Candidate for Immediate Load Implants?

Not everyone is a good candidate for immediate load implants. You need to have healthy oral tissue, adequate bone quantity and quality in the implant area, and no medical conditions that might negatively impact healing. Your implant dentist will evaluate your teeth, jaw, mouth, and overall health to determine if you are a good candidate for immediate load implants.

What Happens During an Immediate Load Implant Procedure?

During an immediate load implant procedure, your dentist will remove the missing tooth and then immediately place the implant into the tooth socket. The implant will be temporarily stabilized with a screw or other device. A few weeks later, your dentist will remove the temporary stabilization and attach a permanent crown to the implant.

The Benefits of Immediate Load Implants

  • There are several benefits to immediate load implants, including:

    • Minimal disruption to your daily life: You can return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure.
    • No temporary denture or bridge required: You can have your new teeth on the same day as your implant surgery.
    • Faster healing time: Immediate load implants often heal faster than traditional implants.

The Risks of Immediate Load Implants

There are also some risks associated with immediate load implants, including:

  • Increased risk of implant failure: Because the implants are not given as much time to osseointegrate (fuse) with the bone, there is an increased risk of implant failure.
  • Need for a longer healing period: Patients who have immediate load implants may need to wear a temporary bridge or denture for several months while the implants fully osseointegrate.

Duration of the Process for Same Day Implants

The Duration of the Procedure

The duration of the procedure for same day implants can vary depending on the number of implants being placed and the complexity of the case. However, in most cases, the procedure can be completed in one office visit.

The Process

The process for same day implants typically begins with the removal of the missing teeth. Once the teeth have been removed, the implants are placed into the jawbone. The implants are then stabilized with a temporary crown or bridge. In some cases, the implants may be loaded with permanent crowns immediately following the surgery.

Proper Upkeep, Issues with Recovery, and Peri-implantitis

Failure Rate

The failure rate of immediate load implants is slightly higher than traditional implants because the implants are not given as much time to osseointegrate (fuse) with the bone. However, the success rates of immediate load implants have been increasing, especially when coupled with bone grafting procedures.

Recovery

The recovery time for immediate load implants is typically shorter than traditional implants. However, patients may still experience some discomfort and swelling after the surgery. It is important to follow your dentist’s instructions carefully during the recovery period to reduce the risk of complications.

Peri-implantitis

Peri-implantitis is a condition that can affect dental implants. It is characterized by inflammation and progressive loss of supporting bone. Peri-implantitis can occur in patients with immediate load implants, as well as traditional implants.

Prevention

The best way to prevent peri-implantitis is to practice good oral hygiene. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.

Rinsing

Your dentist may also prescribe an antiseptic mouthwash to help prevent infection. Use the mouthwash as directed by your dentist.

Post-Procedure Tips and Advice for Proper Healing of Same Day Implants

Post-Procedure Care

Here are some post-procedure tips for proper healing of same day implants:

  • Rest: After leaving your implant dentist’s office, relax at home for at least three days following the surgery.
  • Diet: Maintain a diet of soft foods for as long as your dentist prescribes. Avoid hot and solid foods, and do not use a straw.
  • Activity: Avoid aerobic exercise or any other strenuous activity for at least a week afterwards.
  • Hygiene: Follow your dentist’s specific instructions for brushing, flossing, and rinsing.

Brushing and Flossing

It is important to brush and floss your teeth gently after same day implants. Your dentist may recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste. You should also floss around your implants daily to remove plaque and bacteria.

Follow-Up Appointments

It is important to schedule follow-up appointments with your dentist after same day implants. Your dentist will check the healing of your implants and make sure that they are properly integrated with your bone.

Preventing Implant Failure

There are a number of things that you can do to help prevent implant failure, including:

  • Following your dentist’s instructions carefully: This includes following the post-operative care instructions, such as avoiding smoking and strenuous activity.
  • Maintaining good oral hygiene: This includes brushing and flossing your teeth regularly, and visiting your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.
  • Quitting smoking: Smoking can reduce blood flow to the implant site, which can increase the risk of failure.

Smoking and Implant Failure

One of the most important things you can do to prevent implant failure is to quit smoking. Smoking can reduce blood flow to the implant site, which can make it more difficult for the implant to osseointegrate (fuse) with the bone. In fact, studies have shown that smokers are up to 5 times more likely to experience implant failure than nonsmokers.

If you are considering dental implants, it is important to quit smoking before the procedure. This will help to ensure the best possible outcome.
