Dayton residents ask, “What are the advantages to immediate dental implants”
Dental implants have become the gold standard for replacing damaged, broken, or missing teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, which are located on top of the gums, implants provide a restoration that extends below the gum line. Dentures or bridges are able to restore the aesthetics of the smile but leave patients with a fraction of the functionality of natural teeth. Implants offer patients a beautiful smile and full functionality that lasts a lifetime.
Even though dental implants are the restoration of choice for many patients, the entire process can be time consuming, often requiring several months to complete. With advances in technology and innovation, Alex Bell Dental is now offering the patients in Dayton and surrounding areas the option to restore their smile with immediate dental implants. Patients will no longer have to wait months for their new teeth. Same day implants offer patients the ability to leave our office with a brand new smile in one appointment. Immediate dental implants can be performed on a single tooth or multiple teeth.
Advantages of immediate dental implants:
- Saves time, the implant and crown are placed in the same day, versus traditional implants, which are done over the course of several months
- High success rate
- Functionality is restored immediately, giving patients the comfort of being able to chew normally. (Patients are advised to eat soft foods for the first few days after treatment and avoid hard foods and candies for several weeks)
- Shortened recovery period
Immediate implants are placed with the aid of 3D imaging. This allows our team to have a visualization of the exact size and location of nerve bundles and blood vessels. This detailed look into the treatment area allows us to place the implant precisely in the optimal spot, shortening treatment time and providing immediate results.
If you have missing or damaged teeth and you have been hesitant about implants due to their prolonged treatment time, call us today to schedule a consultation. Dr. Cobb will perform an examination to determine if you are a candidate for same day implants.
