Same Day Dental Implants
Same Day Dental Implants in BirminghamUsually used in emergency situations, same day dental implants are performed in one treatment rather than across two stages.
Initially, tooth extraction may be necessary. Following this, an implant is placed in the same appointment. These are only possible if you have healthy gums and strong jawbone support, clinically assessed by performing a 3D CBCT scan. A collar is fixed to the implant, followed by a temporary acrylic crown.
The implant is then allowed to integrate into the bone structure of the jaw, which usually takes 3 to 6 months. After this, the final porcelain crown is attached to the implant, replacing the temporary crown.
If you’re not a suitable candidate for same day implants, then you may wish to have a more conventional dental implant, involving two stages.
