Immediate Dental Implants

The process of getting dental implants has typically taken as long as six months. With immediate dental implants (sometimes called immediate loading), the crown/prosthesis can be inserted the same day that the implant is placed. We sometimes call this Teeth-In-A-Day. It provides instant gratification for the patient, increasing quality of life while reducing the time spent in the dental chair.

Immediate dental implant placement is only possible due to advanced techniques. For the procedure to be safe and viable, your dentist needs a great deal of experience. The doctors at DC Smiles have placed thousands of successful immediate dental implant placements for patients and have practiced implant dentistry for many years. Our dentists are familiar with the latest implant literature, and he has had the opportunity to try all of the major manufacturers. This allows him to select the best design for the optimal prognosis for each individual patient. 

This state-of-the-art immediate loading technique is possible because the surfaces of the implants have been modified to enhance osseointegration the integration of the bone and implant. We use the latest 3D imaging technology software Anatomage and Invivo to model the restorations and identify the ideal location to place the implants.

The main feature of these software programs concerns the planning.  We can plan the placement of the implants, considering not only the anatomical scene but also the esthetic positioning. When we look at the concerted CT in the software program, it provides him with the ability to visualize the bone in different positions. In some cases, it also allows the surgery to be done without flaps so that he can perform the implant surgery and place the implants without the need for cutting and sutures. This reduces the risk of inflammation, bruising, and pain. Read more about Dental Implants.
