One day dental implant offers: fiction
Offers for One Day Dental Implants and Teeth in a Day sound really good. Who wouldn’t want to spend a few hours in a dentist’s office and walk out with a new set of teeth?
We went online to see what dental offices promise when they offer One Day Dental Implants. Here’s what we found:
- Dental Office #1: “Get your smile back again in as little as one day!” But they go even further saying, thanks to new technology, you can walk out of the office with new teeth in a day. However, towards the end they begin to backtrack a little, “often in one procedure, the same day.”
- Dental Office #2: after offering One Day Dental Implants, they then say, “you’ll go home with a temporary set of teeth.”
- Dental Office #3: “Even though there are several benefits of same day dental implant, there are few risks also.” But, the major risk is the failure of the implant.
Even more troubling are the offers from other out-of-country clinics that offer cheap dental implants in a day.
Dental implants: facts
The fact is, correctly placing dental implants is a procedure that requires a great deal of proficiency, education, and skill. One of the reasons dental implants are such a good option for tooth replacement is that they can last a lifetime.
Your dentist places the implant post deep into the jaw. Bone forms around the post and holds the implant securely in place—a process called osseointegration. It takes several weeks for osseointegration to take place. Once the process of osseointegration is complete, permanent teeth can be placed on the implant. Even before the implant is placed, an assessment has to be done and x-rays taken.
Temporary teeth can be placed on the implant, so that you never have to leave the office without teeth, but follow-up appointments have to be made to make sure that the osseointegration process is going well and there are no problems in or around the implant area.
Additionally, read our Dental Implant 101 post if you’re still interested in learning more about the process.
