With over fifteen years of experience, The Al-Fa Perio clinic in London is specialists in dental implants.
We know that having single tooth loss, or even multiple tooth loss can be a period of anguish for anybody. Not only is your confidence affected, but the functionality of your mouth too.
Same-day implants is a procedure where patients can have dental implants fitted and leave with fully functioning teeth in just one appointment.
Can you get a Dental Implant in one day?
Traditionally, dental implant procedures and processes usually required up to six months to place the implant and fully restore the mouth.
This meant that following the placement, the surrounding area around the implant had enough time to heal and bond with the jaw.
To ensure your mouth was not left with any gaps, temporary restorations would be provided.
However, our dental implant specialist; Dr Daftari is capable of extracting failing teeth and inserting dental implants on the same day.
Due to technological advances and growth, replacing missing teeth is simpler and faster with no need to fit temporary dentures.
Placing dental implants and restoring with either a replacement crown, dentures or bridge can all be done in one appointment.
This means you can walk out of Al-Fa Perio with your fully restored smile on the same day and this is just one of the many benefits.
How many Dental Implants can be done at once?
Multiple dental implants are perfect for replacing teeth lost to gum disease as they support bridges and dentures.
They are considered to be the best long-term solution when it comes to improving your oral health.
During your consultation, we put together the perfect treatment plan that works to restore your teeth and the cosmetic appeal to your smile.
What is the downside to Dental Implants?
The common question is are dental implants worth it? Fixing your smile with dental implants is generally considered safe.
However, as with any surgery, problems can arise and complications can occur. This can include cavity injuries, infection and bleeding.
So, when considering same-day teeth, it’s important to keep these points in mind:
- Dental implants are not just a quick fix
- Gum surrounding the implant can become infected leading to periodontal disease and bone loss
- Extra work may need to be carried out if you suffer from osteoporosis or gum disease
- Dental implants are subject to fail without the proper care
- They can be very costly
Despite the cons of implants, they are a durable and reliable option, especially in the case of adults.
Surgery boasts success rates of over 90 per cent and if successful, boost oral health.
