Can I get full dental implants in one day?

Those with multiple missing teeth can really benefit from dental implants. Without an effective replacement, missing teeth can have a knock-on effect on your everyday life. Your speech may be affected, it can limit what you eat, and it can even become painful if you are wearing replacement dentures that aren’t properly fitted. More importantly, having multiple missing teeth can really affect your confidence, especially if the gaps are located near the front of the mouth and are visible when you laugh, smile or speak.

Most tooth replacement options are a temporary solution and will not completely restore all the qualities of a real tooth. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement that can completely restore both the functionality and aesthetic appearances of your teeth, which is why they are the most popular replacement. But with dental implants being such a specialist treatment, is it possible replace multiple teeth in just one day?

What are same day dental implants?

Same day dental implants typically refer to the replacement of multiple teeth or complete upper and lower jaws. The approach uses a strategic placement of 4-8 titanium screws which are inserted into the jawbone using a small surgical procedure. Once fitted in place, a custom-made dental bridge is placed securely on top to restore the functionality and aesthetic appearance of your smile. The end result looks just like real teeth!

Although same day dental implants involve a much larger procedure than the placement of a single implant, with careful planning, expertise and cutting-edge technology, you can leave with full dental implants in one day.

Why get same day dental implants?

Anyone with missing teeth knows what a significant impact tooth loss can have on your life. Dental implants are the only treatment available that can provide an authentic replacement for real teeth and restore your quality of life. Here are some of the reasons you might want to consider same day dental implants:

Replace the cosmetic and functional qualities of your teeth

Whilst other tooth replacement options are available, dental implants are the only treatment able to cosmetically restore the appearance of your teeth and the functionality. Dentures or non-implant dental bridges can improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile, however, they are more limited in functionality. This is because they sit on top of your remaining teeth or gums and are at risk of coming loose. Dental implants, on the other hand, are surgically fixed into the jawbone making them secure. This means that they can act as fully functioning teeth as well as restoring the aesthetic appearance of your smile.

Eat all your favourite foods

Tooth loss can often prevent you from eating tough or chewy foods such as meat, crusty bread or raw vegetables, especially if you have multiple missing teeth. Many people find this embarrassing when going out for food or over to a friend’s house for dinner as you are often unable to eat certain parts of your meal. More importantly, inability to eat certain foods also prevents you from getting the full nutritional value of your meals. Your diet can become very limited and you will not be getting all the nutrients you need. With same day dental implants, you can go from having little to no teeth at all to having a full set of fully functioning teeth in the very same day. This will allow you to eat all your favourite foods and enjoy socialising again without embarrassment.

Smile, laugh and feel confident in yourself

Most people with multiple missing teeth or noticeable gaps become self-conscious about their smile. Subconsciously, you might start to become more withdrawn in social situations or cover your mouth more when laughing, smiling or having your photo taken. Same day dental implants will not only fill the gaps in your teeth, but they can also be cosmetically crafted to create your perfect smile. If you have teeth remaining, the implants can be carefully matched to the exact shape and colour of your teeth, so no one will even know they are implants at all. If you need to replace all your teeth, your same day smile can be cosmetically crafted to look as straight and white as you like. You’ll be able to smile and laugh with confidence again in no time!
