Is it possible to extract a bad tooth and insert an implant on the same day?
Yes, it is! It is what same day implant entails.
The same day that the surgery is done, a dental implant will be surgically placed in your jawbone with a provisional crown made up of a sturdy plastic material which will allow you to use the tooth the same day. Unlike conventional implants which take about 3 months before the provisional crown is inserted in the mouth, using the immediate implants, you will have your aesthetics, speech and other oral functions restored the same day the implant is done.
There are a few misconceptions and beliefs concerning the same day implants. This guide will clarify all possible misconceptions concerning this problem.
After either of these processes, once the implant has been reviewed and seen to be successful, the definitive porcelain restoration that fits in the place of the plastic restorations are created, and this can take a few months to take place. To achieve this, you can visit a professional and experienced dentist at Harley street, London, or you can give us a call on 020 71834091 to book an appointment.
First, our dentists will have to evaluate the patient to find out if they are suitable to undergo an implant. You will then be directed to the right choice of implant treatment ideal for your condition. An important consideration that must be made by the dentists when using this method is that the dental implant must be very stable. To this effect, the same day implant can only be used with systems that have an excellent dense bone. If the quality of the bone is not good enough, then a pre-treatment like bone graft may be carried out first. If the pre-implant treatments are indicated, then the same day implants cannot be applied.
Note that another type of implant is possible in this case, just with a different protocol and the absence of a provisional restoration.
Biting forces stimulate bone growth into the threading of the implant screw structure, and as only a firm bone can allow biting forces act in the teeth, only a firm bone is allowed to undergo the process of a same-day implant. Good dense bones make it easier for osseointegration to occur. Since the implant is already firmly fixed, it allows the patient to use the implanted teeth confidently.
This same-day implant technique can be used for full implant treatment in a jaw that has no teeth. The method is only used when a single front tooth is failing and need to be extracted.
Note: This technique is very sensitive. It requires a lot of skills and a well-experienced dentist, or it could be dangerous. This is why this procedure must always be carried out by a professional dentist.
