Dental implants and teeth in one day? Is this even possible? You may have seen dental implant doctors advertise this as a service they offer. While this is true and it can be done, there are some restrictions to the procedure.
- It is rarely true for single teeth. When you take out single teeth it’s rare you can put the implant and tooth in on the same day, because there usually aren’t other factors in your mouth that you can stabilize the implant with immediately.
- A whole mouthful of teeth is more viable for this type of quick procedure, because when you take all the teeth out, you can connect several implants together.
- The quality of already existing bone is a critical factor in viability. If your bone isn’t strong enough to support the implants than there may be bone grafting that will need to take place before the implants and teeth can be placed.
