Restore Your Smile in One Day
The healing process is vitally important to the success of your dental implants. With traditional treatment methods, living with a gap in your smile during your implant placement healing process was mandatory. Imagine having a fully restored smile in a single procedure. With our same day dental implants, this can be a reality.
Dr. Bedich explains how the same day dental implant treatment method can offer you a completely restored smile in a single procedure.
How Are Same Day Dental Implants Different?
Also known as immediate load, same day dental implants offer a treatment method for placing the implant so a temporary restoration can be attached the same day. This method takes months off your treatment since you don’t have to wait while the area heals before the restoration is placed.
Are Same Day Dental Implants Right for You?
Same day dental implants may be the best choice for anyone who wants to enjoy a fully restored smile as quickly as possible. Like all dental implant procedures, some patients may benefit from a supplemental procedure before their implants are placed.
To find out if same day dental implants are right for you, visit our Cortland, OH practice for a consultation with Dr. Bedich.
The Immediate Load Process
All dental implant treatments begin with a consultation with Dr. Bedich. He will discuss your tooth replacement goals, perform a thorough examination, and help you decide which solution is right for you.
Using the information gathered from your consultation, Dr. Bedich will create your treatment plan. Once you approve of your treatment, you’ll visit us to have your implants placed and a temporary restoration will be attached during the same appointment. This means you won’t have to live with gaps in your smile while your mouth heals. Once Dr. Bedich has determined everything has healed, you’ll have your permanent restoration placed for a fully restored smile.
Proper Care for Same Day Dental Implants
Even though you’ll have your restoration placed the same day as your implants, the healing period is still crucial for your oral health. During this time, the jawbone fuses with the implant fixture–a process called osseointegration–to create a strong foundation. It’s important to avoid putting excess pressure on the restoration until the area has completely healed and osseointegration has taken place.
After the initial healing period, general care for your same day dental implant is the same as traditional dental implants. Proper brushing and flossing at home are key, as well as regular dental checkups will help keep your implants healthy.
