Same day teeth is not a myth and it is an amazing way of replacing broken or decayed teeth with immediate dental implants. However, as with most treatments it is not always suitable for every person. If there is a lack of bone volume, if there is infection present or if there is a health complication it could mean this treatment is not possible.
Most commonly we can offer same day teeth when we are replacing a full upper or lower set of teeth. The procedure involves removing all remaining teeth and placing, ideally, 6 dental implants to hold the immediate fixed teeth. These fixed teeth are generally a provisional or temporary set while everything settles down and heals. A new set of more durable and permanent teeth will be made after a healing time of 8-12 weeks.
Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. Replacing a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth with dental implants can allow you to feel more comfortable talking, smiling and chewing naturally again.
