Dental implants are a natural way to replace your damaged or missing teeth. Although some plant procedures require several visits to your dentist over several months, implant dentures in one day are now available and let you get fully functional teeth right away. Whether or not you are a candidate for this procedure depends on some factors. 

How the Procedure Works

Dental implants can replace missing or broken teeth by placing them into the jawbone. They function like your teeth roots and offer a stable base to attach long-lasting and natural-looking dental crowns. But conventional implant procedures require a healing period before a crown can be placed. Also, traditional dentures can be a hassle since they need to be adjusted regularly and may contribute to jawbone loss. When you get implant dentures on the same day, temporary dentures are placed in your mouth until the permanent replacement teeth are ready. 

Because dental implants are stable, you can smile, eat, and talk with confidence. Also, implants help stabilize and maintain your jawbone, preventing bone loss. 

Are you a Good Candidate?

You need to consult with your dentist to know if you are a good candidate for same-day implant dentures. Your dentist will perform a comprehensive dental examination to assess if this implant method is suitable for your particular needs. In general, you can get this procedure done if you are missing at least one tooth, want to get a cosmetic and functional improvement in your smile immediately, have enough bone density in your area the implant will be placed, and have healthy oral tissue. Also, you shouldn’t have a teeth-grinding habit and medical conditions that may impact bone healing to be a good candidate.

If you do not have enough bone density, your dentist can perform a bone graft. This procedure adds density and volume to your jawbone. Also, if you are suffering from gum disease, this must be treated first before you can get implant dentures. If you are not a good candidate, your dentist can help you become eligible by creating a personalized treatment plan for you. Also, they may recommend other procedures that can effectively improve your smile.  

If you want to know your eligibility for same-day implant dentures, schedule a consultation with your dentist as soon as possible. The best dentist prioritizes your comfort and satisfaction as well as ensures you find the best solution for your dental issues.
