Immediate-Load Implants for Same-Day Restoration
The best thing about dental implants is that your jawbone accepts them as natural, healing to them over time. This process, known as osseointegration, requires sufficient jawbone structure to work. If your jawbone is strong and healthy enough, you may qualify for same-day implants, which can be immediately loaded with a temporary restoration so you can go about your day with a full smile while your jawbone heals. Same-day implants allow you to enjoy your smile sooner and make the time between implant placement and final implant restoration more comfortable and convenient.
Do You Qualify for Same-Day Implants?
The strength and integrity of your jawbone can be affected by numerous factors, and tooth loss is one of the most significant ones. For instance, your teeth roots help keep your jawbone healthy by stimulating it every time you bite and chew. The stimulation promotes the flow of essential nutrients that your jawbone relies on. Losing a tooth root diminishes this flow, resulting in the gradual erosion of your jawbone’s mass and density. To qualify for immediate-load implants, your jawbone must be in optimal health, which is why patients who seek treatment as soon as possible following tooth loss are the best candidates for same-day implants.
