People should have 32 permanent teeth. Unfortunately, American adults aged 20 to 64 years have an average of 25.5 remaining teeth. While losing a tooth is common, it is also a distressing experience that impacts your oral health and self-confidence. The team at Mint Mini Dental Implants can replace missing teeth with innovative same-day dental implants, also known as immediate-loading dental implants.
Traditional implants take months and involve multiple stages, including a healing break. Dr. John Coolican and his team are dedicated to delivering a quicker, more convenient restoration solution to help you regain your quality of life.
What Are Same-Day Dental Implants?
Same-day dental implants are a dental innovation designed to replace missing teeth quickly and efficiently using mini dental implants. Mini dental implants are smaller-sized dental implants typically used to stabilize dentures or support small teeth in areas with limited space. They offer a less invasive option for patients who may not be suitable candidates for traditional dental implants. Traditional implants require several months of healing before receiving your permanent restoration. Alternatively, mini dental implants allow you to leave the dental office with a new tooth or set of teeth on the very same day as the implant procedure.
Here is what you should know about same-day dental implants:
The immediate dental implant procedure typically includes removing a damaged tooth, placing the implant, and attaching a temporary crown or bridge. On the same day as the extraction (if required), Dr. Coolican can place the mini dental implant(s) into the jawbone. This typically involves drilling a small hole into the bone and securing the implant in place. The implant serves as a replacement for the tooth root. Using this innovative solution, we can secure your smile.
Same-day dental implants are known for their immediate loading feature. This means a restoration (crown or bridge) is affixed to the implant immediately after placement. This is in contrast to traditional dental implants, which typically require a healing period of several months before the permanent restoration can be installed. At Mint Mini Dental Implants, we want you to feel yourself again before leaving our office.
Temporary vs. Permanent Same-Day Dental Implants
It’s important to note that a temporary crown or bridge is not as durable as the final restoration and will need to be replaced with a permanent one after a short healing period. The permanent restoration is custom-made to fit your mouth perfectly and provide a natural look and feel. This personalized permanent restoration ensures long-lasting comfort and confidence in your daily activities and social interactions. With mini dental implants, you can go about your life without missing a beat.
Same-day dental implants offer several advantages. First, they reduce treatment time, allowing patients to enjoy immediate aesthetic improvement. Patients appreciate the convenience of not having to wear a removable dental appliance during the healing phase. Moreover, they can minimize the risk of bone loss, preserving oral health and facial structure over time. Mini dental implants often result in a quicker return to normal eating and speaking, enhancing overall patient comfort and functionality. In essence, this means returning to normal routines on the very same day as your procedure.
