Same Day Teeth
In the past, patients who wanted dental implants were advised to wait for around 3 to 6 months before having a permanent restoration attached. However, patients are now able to enjoy their new smile immediately thanks to Same Day Teeth.
Same Day Teeth allows implants to be restored immediately after placement by crowns, bridges or dentures allowing for immediately visible results. This can be done in patients who have already lost their teeth or even patients who will lose them in future.Read more
Conventional implants may be used when the tooth is extracted, in which case the implant is placed immediately after extraction, or if no teeth are present. Midi and mini implants can only be employed when the teeth being replaced have been absent for at least six months.
Same day Teeth is a principle used to treat single implant teeth or more commonly full arch rehabilitation which is also known as All-on-4.
Who would benefit from Same Day Teeth?
Patients with a lot of missing teeth, dentures or bridges would benefit from treatment, especially those that have had a missing tooth for six months or more. Denture wearers who suffer problems such as irritation and pain and loose dentures would also benefit. Full jaw treatment can be achieved with this procedure. People who are worried about the aesthetics of their mouth may also choose this treatment. Ideally all patients would benefit from this as it reduces treatment times and gives patients good immediate results which improves their confidence.
What is the procedure?
Initially a treatment plan is formulated after X-rays are taken, when suitability for the procedure is positive. Impressions are taken and the colour and size of the prosthetic teeth will be discussed. After this the patient is scheduled for their Same Day Smile appointment. During this appointment all surgical work is done over the course of one day. Your dentist will talk you through the procedure in more detail and answer any questions you may have.
Is Same Day Teeth treatment painful?
The treatment itself is done under anaesthetic so patients have no pain during surgery. As with any surgery the healing process can be painful and your dentist will advise on medications that help with the healing and pain after surgery.
How long does the procedure take?
After the initial consultation where impressions are made and teeth colour and size chosen, the surgery is carried out over one day on the second appointment. Depending on the extent of treatment, in single implant cases the treatment can be completed in as little as one hour. In full arch cases the patient will arrive in the morning and leave in the early evening ready for their tea and a nice relaxing evening.
Advantages of Same Day Teeth
The major advantage of Same Day Teeth is that you can enjoy your new smile without delay. Same Day Teeth also reduce the number of visits you need to make to the dentist. Treatment is not suitable for everyone, but we can discuss alternate options if you are not a suitable candidate; this could be the case if bone density isn't enough to hold the dental implant. If this is the case bone graft treatment can be used to boost the strength of your jaw bone and make it ready for implantation.

Disadvantages of Same Day Teeth
The patient's overall health needs to be taken into consideration when assessing if they are suitable for treatment. A health person will recover more quickly from the treatment. There also has to be a good quality and amount of bone available for the procedure to be successful. It is a lot for the body to deal with in one day and therefore the healing process may be slightly painful for a while afterwards.
