Nobody plans on losing their teeth. Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances such as sporting injuries, cavities, and gum disease can conspire to rob you of your teeth when you least expect it. When faced with tooth loss, the best step of action is to look into restoration options. Restorative dentistry offers various tooth replacement options, including bridges, dentures, and implants.
In regards to tooth replacement, a key area of contention is the waiting period. Many patients find it frustrating to wait for their new teeth. Being without teeth in the interim period is no fun, whether you’re talking about foregoing your favorite foods or feeling awkward during conversations. That’s where same-day implant placement comes in.
Same-day dental implants allow patients to get a new smile within one visit. If multiple dental appointments irk you, then you’ll be pleased to know that you can have an extraction, implantation, and placement of crowns all in a single session. Same-day implant placement is available at the dental practice of Byron L. Carr, DMD, in Hemet and Temecula, CA.
Our dentist in Hemet and Temecula, CA, carefully evaluates all interested parties to determine whether they are suitable candidates for same-day implant placement. If you’re in excellent oral and overall health, then the chances are high that you qualify for same-day dental implants. However, every person’s case is unique, and our dentist can only give you a concrete answer after a thorough review.
If you have an infection, this will require treatment first before you can get your implants. Patients who have undergone bone loss or atrophy may need bone grafting before they can receive dental implants.
Unlike traditional dental implants that require a healing or waiting period between implant placement and crown placement, same-day implant placement involves immediate loading of the crown. Our dentist will extract the damaged tooth if it hasn’t already been removed and, after that, drill the implants into your jawbone. The last step involves placing temporary crowns on the implants so that you go home with a brand new smile.
All-on-4® are dental implants that fall under the same-day implant placement category. These implants are comprised of four dental implants that support a denture. They’re mainly preferred for the lower dental arch but can also be fitted on the upper arch.
We use anesthesia and sedation (if you like) to guarantee patient comfort and relaxation during same-day implant placement procedures.
