Traditionally, dental implant procedure was performed in a two-step process between 12-14 weeks. In the first step the dental implant, which is a titanium post, is inserted into the jaw bone. Before any further action is taken, the process of self-integration of the dental implant to the jawbone, is allowed to take place. After several months of healing, an abutment is placed on top of the implant. A crown, the part that replaces your tooth, is then attached to the abutment.
The disadvantage of the traditional method is the amount of time it takes to complete, but there is another problem. Some dentists perform this procedure freehand, meaning that they estimate the best placement for the insertion of the implant into the jawbone. Many times this means that the implant is inserted into a less-than-optimal spot, which accounts for the long healing time.
Dental Implant procedure in one sitting
We at Royal Dental Clinics, process the same treatment of Dental Implants in a couple of hours using precise technology and expertise. Dental implant procedures that we perform in a couple of hours do not use the traditional process. We use a single-stage immediate-loading implant, and we stand pioneers for this One Day treatment.
In the procedure which we use at Royal Dental Clinics, a tooth can be removed, an implant inserted, and a crown placed all in the space of a couple of hours. Take note that while the procedure can be performed in a couple of hours, there is no freehand here, as it takes a surgical guide to be created which we have acquired experience of over the years. In others words, getting your implants in One Day is a much more accurate process compared to the traditional method.
Based on the life of the teeth, your dentist may decide whether the natural teeth are restorable, functional or whether they need to be replaced. Various options for replacement of missing teeth are:
- Crowns and bridges
- Dental implants
- Removable denture
- Combination of above
