Dental implants are currently the most popular choice for restoring a missing tooth. The implant procedure is lengthy because of the long waiting time of several months until complete healing before the final prosthesis construction.

Same day implants are the fast track for a dental implant. During the same visit, you can receive the implant and the restoration, allowing you to leave with your perfect smile.

Difference between Conventional Implants and Same Day Implants

The golden concept in implant placement is osseointegration. Osseointegration refers to the fusion between the bone and the implant to ensure implant success. This fusion typically takes around 4-6 months to complete.

During the conventional procedure for implant placement, the implant is embedded in the bone, and the gums are stitched around it and left to heal. After healing, the implant surface is exposed to attach the implant abutment and the final prosthesis is fabricated. The entire process, including consultation, treatment planning, implant placement, osseointegration, and final restoration construction, may take up to 10 months.

During the Same Day Implant, the procedure is more concise. The implant can be placed on the same day as the extraction or later on. The main difference is that the implant will be loaded immediately after placement. The restoration could be the final one that will not need replacement. Or a temporary restoration can be provided to ensure function and aesthetics until complete healing, after which it can be replaced.

Ideal candidates for Same Day Implants

To ensure the success of same day implants, our professional team of implant experts will closely study multiple factors related to your oral and medical condition. The inclusion/exclusion criteria include

Oral health: a patient with healthy gingiva, perfect oral hygiene, and who regularly performs oral hygiene measures is an ideal candidate for same day implant.

Bone condition: a sufficient amount of bone and bone density is essential at the implant site.

General health: patients with chronic and autoimmune diseases are not ideal candidates for same day implant

Other factors: bruxism and smoking are more likely to decrease the success rate for same day implant.

Pros of Same Day Implants

  • Short treatment time: no need to wait for a few months for implant healing before restoration placement
  • Less number of visits
  • You leave the dental office with a complete smile
  • Less invasive: No need for a second surgery to expose the implant surface to fix the implant abutment.
  • Better soft tissue healing with less chances of gingival recession
  • If the tooth is extracted on the same day as implant placement, implants can keep the bacteria away from the socket.

Cons of Same Day Implants

  • Lengthier surgical time.
  • Slightly higher chances for implant failure
  • Post-surgical swelling and edema are more prominent compared to conventional implants.
  • More expensive.
  • May not be covered by insurance.
  • Not everyone is a good candidate.

Types of Same Day Implants

Same day implants provide a treatment solution for individuals who have lost one or multiple teeth. According to the number of missing teeth, same day implants may be

Single-tooth dental implant

A dental implant is composed of three parts.

  • Implant fixture: It is a screw resembling the natural root of a tooth. It is inserted inside the jawbone to act as an anchor for the restoration. Dental implants are constructed from titanium, a biocompatible material that promotes bone integration.
  • Abutment: This is the connection between the implant fixture inserted inside the jawbone and the final restoration.
  • Crown: the visible part of the implant. It can be made of porcelain or ceramic. The crown shade is matched to the surrounding teeth, making it indistinguishable.

Single-tooth dental implant constructed using the same-day implant technique enable you to leave the dental office with complete implant loading, including the crown.

Full-arch dental implants

There are two types of same day implants for a full-arch restoration.

    • TeethXpress dental implant

      It has the same components as single-tooth implants. But the difference lies in the concept. A single-tooth implant restores a missing tooth by using just one implant. TeethXpress dental implants can restore multiple teeth with a smaller number of implants. Not every missing tooth is replaced with an implant.Full-arch restoration may be a little more complicated due to the higher forces it receives. Therefore, implant healing must be ensured before the insertion of the final restoration. Implants and abutments are inserted, but you will leave with a temporary fixed restoration. The final restoration can be placed within 4-6 months following complete osseointegration.

    • Implant-supported dentures

      It involves the use of a removable denture over the placed implant. The removable denture may be custom-made or through modification of an existing denture to fit the implant abutments. Attachments that fit the implant abutment will be inserted on the lower surface of your denture. After the implants have completely healed, you will return to the office for the new denture construction.Not everyone is a good candidate for same day implant.

I have been registered at this dental practice now, for just over 15 years. Throughout that whole period, I have been lucky enough to have been looked after by the wonderful, and patient, Dr Prasad.

Do not hesitate to register at this practise, as you will be looked after with care and consideration.

Very friendly

During the lockdown period I was able to see Dr Irfan for a dental emergency I had. I’m so grateful that they have been available throughout this. Gillian the practice manager contacted me and offered me an appointment the same day. I am a long standing patient at this practice and cannot thank them enough for great service they have provided to me throughout the years. Great dentist, staff and management. Thank you all so much.

Susan L.

The Dental Care Center has been an excellent dentist surgery that I have been attending as a patient for many years. When I was young I didn’t have a pleasant experience with my local dentist on more than one occasion. I found the dentist at Camden dental care center very reassuring and comforting. The management and reception were also very welcoming.

Stewart S.

Really efficient service and friendly helpful staff, clean and fresh environment

Stephanie P.

Great desk staff and Dentists. Excellent with young children.

Spencer M.

Brilliant service from Dr Mansi Patel – she ensured I was well informed regarding my dental issues and spent a whole consultation discussing my dental history and reviewing my previous scans. She provided the means to communicate out of hours, if I had any further queries. She demonstrated empathy and encouraged collaborative decision making throughout. This is a refreshing approach, speaking from someone who’s a healthcare professional. Would recommend!
