When teeth are hopeless and need to be replaced with dental implants, we are able to provide the patient with “Same Day Teeth”.
The procedure is called “Immediate Loading of Implants” and it is well documented in the dental literature.
At your first appointment dental extractions and implant placement will be performed at the same time.
Using special techniques and instruments, painful and time consuming bone grafting procedures are avoided in almost all cases.
At the second appointment, within 24 hours you will return to the clinic for the placement of
screw-retained fixed acrylic temporary teeth.
Conventional removable complete dentures are never used as temporary prostheses. Only teeth rigidly fixed to the implants are used making treatment very comfortable to the patient.
At the third appointment, within 7 days, the treatment is completed with the placement of
screw-retained fixed permanent teeth made out of zirconia and porcelain or entirely out of zirconia (“Monolithic Zirconia”).
In most cases treatment is completed in 3 visits and in the event of replacing one tooth, treatment can be finished in 2-3 days (2 visits).
In all cases, implant placement is designed thoroughly in order to be able to construct teeth that can be screwed on the implants and not to be cemented. By doing so, the dentist has the ability to take out (unscrew) the teeth if needed (porcelain fracture, inflammation of the gums etc) in the future. Furthermore, the absence of cement contributes to better healing of the gums.
