One of the most popular options for replacing missing teeth is dental implants. Typically, the process takes a minimum of several months, especially if you need other procedures such as extractions or bone grafting. However, in some cases, it is possible to place dental implants on the same day as these procedures.
In this article, we'll explain what you need to know about same-day dental implants at Amores Dental near Miami, FL.

There are several benefits of same-day dental implants, including:
Yes, in many cases, dental implants can be placed on the same day as tooth extraction, as long as you fit the eligibility criteria. This includes having a healthy jawbone and good oral and overall health.
Typically, bone grafts must heal before dental implants can be placed. However, it is possible in some cases for these procedures to be done at the same time. This is determined on a case-by-case basis.

In general, surgery is a major undertaking and dental implants are no different. The risk of complications with dental implants is low. However, make sure that the dentist you choose has experience with dental implants. Make sure to ask about their credentials, as well as how many implants they have placed and what their success rate is. Also, make sure that you practice proper oral hygiene and avoid habits such as smoking and grinding your teeth, as these could lead to implant failure.
Traditional dental implants have a 95% success rate for healthy patients. The success rate for same-day dental implants is slightly lower, at around 85%.
The biggest advantage of same-day dental implants over traditional implants is the shorter treatment time. The process for traditional implants may take up to a full year, whereas the process for same-day dental implants allows you to leave the office with your new teeth. However, it is important to note that the teeth placed on the same day as the implants are temporary and you will need to have them replaced with permanent ones when osseointegration is complete.
