How do traditional dental implants work?
Before we dive into learning about how Same Day Teeth® differ from traditional dental implants, let’s take a look at just how traditional dental implants work as a replacement option for a missing tooth or missing teeth. Think of dental implants as having two parts: the implant itself and the prosthetic, or replacement tooth. The dental implant is a tiny titanium post that is placed within the bone beneath the gums. This implant provides an anchor for your prosthetic tooth which is inserted into the implant. The prosthetic tooth is custom made and matched to your natural teeth so it blends in seamlessly with your smile. With traditional dental implants, the implant is usually placed in one visit, and the replacement tooth is placed during another office visit.

How does Same Day Teeth® work?
Same Day Teeth® works just like traditional dental implants, but with a big difference when it comes to waiting time. With Same Day Teeth®, the dental implant and the prosthetic, or replacement, tooth is placed in the same visit. With Same Day Teeth®, we cut that waiting time down to just one visit.

How much does Same Day Teeth® cost?
Getting dental implants tends to be more expensive than the cost of getting removable dental appliances or fixed dental appliances that involve the use of dental crowns. The stability and health benefits of dental implants do make up for the difference in cost, however, which is important to keep in mind. Dental implants are rarely covered by insurance. Dental implants are considered an elective dental procedure, and it can be rare for medical or dental insurance plans to offer coverage of the oral surgery and placement of dental implants. Monthly financing plans for dentistry work much like traditional loans and credit cards. The patient is responsible for making monthly installment payments for the total cost of the procedure they have undergone. A reasonable interest rate is applied to the total amount owed. During the consultation process, we will provide ample information on all of your treatment options for missing teeth including your payment options. We want to make sure that you feel confident in all decisions that you make with regard to your dental health and wellness.

How do I know if I’m a candidate for Same Day Teeth®?
Patients who are missing one or multiple teeth are often ideal candidates for Same Day Teeth®. You should be in good overall health and have healthy gum and jawbone tissue in the area of the tooth gap. Patients should also be aware of requirements for care post-procedure so that they can reap the long-term benefits of Same Day Teeth® without complications.
One of the most important things we look for in a Same Day Teeth® candidate is whether they have sufficient jawbone and gum tissue in place. These hard and soft tissues are what anchor the dental implants in place and ensure a stable hold.
Unfortunately, one of the side effects of tooth loss that goes untreated for a long period of time is the loss of bone density and gum tissue. During the consultation process, we will carefully determine if there is enough bone and gum density in the area of the gap to support the immediate-loading dental implants. If so, we can proceed with treatment. If not, then we can discuss alternatives.
Since every mouth is different, the best way to get an answer to this question is to visit us for a consultation. Same Day Teeth® is a great option to consider for major tooth loss, but it’s not for everyone. But whether you’ve recently experienced significant tooth loss or have been missing teeth for some time, schedule a consultation with us and we’ll take a look at your options. We’ll discuss Same Day Teeth® and, if you’re not a candidate, other restorative options for your smile.
