Can Dental Implants Be Done In One Day?

Team Dental Implants

Dental implants are the most sought-after tooth replacement - and for good reason. They function just like a real tooth and they blend in well with your other teeth thanks to their natural appearance. 

Imagine being able to walk out of the dentist’s office in just one visit with a beautiful dental implant. Is it possible?

Can Dental Implants Be Done in One Day? 

For years we have known that traditional dental implants take many weeks - and months - to be fully healed and completed. So, the idea of getting dental implants in one day just doesn’t seem possible. 

Yet, it is. 

It is very possible for dental implants to be done in one day. This is a wonderful option for patients who are not requiring bone grafting, have already experienced some bone loss, require a quick process due to medical reasons, and so forth. 

How One-Day Dental Implants Work

The first step in getting dental implants in one day will start with a consultation to determine if this is the right procedure for you - or if traditional dental implants or another replacement alternative will be a better fit. 

To be eligible, a few things you will need to have include: 

  • Healthy gums free from signs of disease
  • Enough quality jaw bone to hold the implant
  • Have good oral health (and overall health)

If you are good to move forward, the dental implant is surgically implanted in your jawbone. A temporary dental crown will be attached to the top of it using an abutment. 

You will walk out of your appointment with a fully-placed dental implant, but you will have to come back in a couple of weeks for your permanent dental crown. This is custom-designed to look as natural as possible so it will take time to create. 

Full healing takes place in several months when the implant fuses with the bone. In the meantime, you should be able to live life normally with your new implant. 

Benefits of Same-Day Dental Implants

Dental implants themselves come with many benefits, but when you can get them in just one day without waiting there are even more. Below are a few of the advantages you will encounter when you make this choice: 

  • Save time. The process for getting traditional dental implants can take a few months and involve several trips to the dentist. Getting dental implants in one day saves you a lot of time. 
  • Faster results. When you get dental implants in one day, you get your results - and beautiful smile - in one day, too. 
  • Long-term results. Getting dental implants in a day does not jeopardize their long-term success.
  • Versatility. Dental implants in one day can be used for single-tooth replacement, bridges, and full-arch dentures.
