One Day / Same Day Dental Implants
It used to take a long time to put in dental implants, and nobody likes waiting. Fortunately, the same types of brilliant minds that brought us remote car starters and instant popcorn have turned their attention to dental implants. You can get a dental implant done in a few hours, and get back to the film festival or your job before anyone realizes you had left.
One day dental implants are not quite the same as the old-fashioned kind of implants. In the olden days, it could take you anywhere from six months to a year and a half to fully recover from the implanting process. Nowadays, you do not have to hang around for years to get great new teeth. The process used to be a critical surgery, but nowadays all you need is a local anesthetic and some medicine on the level of over-the- counter Ibuprofen to get your implants handled. Traditional implants used to require a full-on IV sedative and being out for awhile. This kind of implant process is so much more efficient, and its popularity is growing steadily.
How Great is It?
Getting a one day implant lets you get back to your daily life so much quicker. This is both awesome for chewing, but for getting back an attractive smile. Nobody can deny that being able to look your best and eat peanut brittle again with a quickness are wonderful parts of getting back your teeth.
Back when old-fashioned dental implants were the only way to replace a tooth that had separated from the main, you had to wait for months to get back that “all my teeth” look. Nowadays, you can get back the look of having all your teeth and the proper shape of your face in just a few hours. It is embarrassing to lose teeth, even if you lost them while doing something epic. Your self-esteem can suffer, and you can feel like less of a person because you have less of a smile.
What Can Go Wrong?
Nothing in this world is perfect, and one-day dental implants are no exception to this rule. There are some risks you have to be mindful of.
The worst thing that can happen is that the implants can fail. This is because the one day process is a completely different one from the old-fashioned way. Without screwing in the posts, the connection is not the same. Over time, the bone can deteriorate or simply change, and this can mess with the implants. Your one-day dental implants are a quick solution that can work for years, but you may need to have it done again down the road.
On the plus side, you can get your smile back very quickly without the risks of being put under. On the downside, you may have to have it redone later on if the implant fails.
