Same Day Teeth® is a revolutionary procedure that allows us to place your implants and your new teeth in the same visit. This means you will not experience the waiting associated with traditional dental implants and will enjoy a new smile the same day your implants are placed. The convenience of Same Day Teeth® is just one reason patients have chosen Coastal Jaw Surgery for their dental implants procedure. In this blog post, we go through some of the questions you may have regarding the Same Day Teeth® procedure.
Traditional dental implants require two surgeries and several months of healing time; but with proper care, they can last a lifetime. These implants require several months of healing before they can be restored with a permanent crown or dentures. However, since they achieve greater surface contact with the jaw, they provide exceptional support, and are considered more durable than mini implants.
Another option for dental implants we provide at Coastal Jaw Surgery is Same Day Teeth®. This process places and restores traditional implants in one visit, providing increased functionality and immediate enhancement. In most cases, mini dental implants can also be placed and restored in a single session.
Since each dental implants case is unique, we suggest visiting us for a consultation so that we can get an accurate assessment of your needs and thereby give you a clear understanding of the costs of the procedure. During your consultation, we can also discuss payment options and insurance coverage if applicable.

The simple answer to the question is that pain associated with dental implant treatment is typically minimal. The majority of our patients are sedated for their surgery. This twilight sleep allows them to be comfortable and unaware of the surgical procedure being performed. In many cases, our patients don’t even remember being in the office. After surgery, the amount of discomfort experienced typically ranges from mild to moderate and is controlled with appropriate prescription medication.
Same Day Teeth® patients experience life-changing results from their procedures: from improved health from being able to eat healthier foods to increased self esteem. As far as the aesthetic improvements, we think the results of Same Day Teeth® can truly speak for themselves. Just take a look at just a few of our many success stories in these before and after photos.
Patients who are missing some or all of their teeth may be candidates for Same Day Teeth®. Before the procedure, your bite should be free from periodontal disease and decay. Some patients may require a bone grafting procedure prior to their implant surgery in order to restore lost bone tissue. In the absence of tooth roots, the jaw will begin to atrophy, and if you have waited to address missing teeth, the jaw may not have enough tissue to support the implants. We are able to perform whatever treatments are necessary to prepare our patients for their Same Day Teeth® procedure. If you would like to find out about your candidacy, we encourage you to schedule a personal consultation.
