It’s estimated that 40 million Americans have lost all, or most, of their permanent teeth. Are you one of them? Living with significant tooth loss impacts your nutrition, your chewing ability, makes you look older than you are and has a huge impact on your self-esteem.

When it comes to replacing lost teeth, a dental implant is the finest option available in restorative dentistry. No other treatment looks, feels and functions more like a normal tooth. However, if you are dealing with significant tooth loss, it’s not feasible from a logistical or financial perspective to receive an implant to replace each of your missing teeth. As an alternative, Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry offers same-day implants. Also known as All-on-4 implants, this procedure replaces an entire arch of dental teeth and can be installed in a single day. Today on the blog, we take a more detailed look at four of the benefits of same-day implants.

You receive a new smile in a single day

Your implant dentist in Scotts Valley places four implants at strategic locations in the mouth. These implants provide the stability to anchor an entire arch of replacement teeth, which then is affixed permanently in your mouth. It might make for a long day at the dental office, but the entire procedure can be completed in a single day, rather than the months of recovery required from the surgical installation of a standard dental implant.

Your replacement teeth look and feel like real teeth

You may have some follow-up appointments scheduled but, generally speaking, you can go back to some semblance of your routine right away. You can enjoy the restored smile and the self-confidence with it, as well as the full functionality as you regain chewing ability and no longer have to avoid certain foods.

The procedure is not as invasive as you might think

Same-day implants are an option even for people who may not be able to receive a traditional implant because they do not have enough bone density. Also, although every treatment is evaluated on an individual basis, same-day implants can be installed in most cases without a bone graft or sinus lift.

Your new teeth are permanent

As mentioned earlier, the arch of replacement teeth is permanently attached. That means you don’t have to worry about removing them to be cleaned; just brush them the same way you would natural teeth. Your replacement arch also will not slip or shift the way dentures can. Moreover, with good oral care, your same-day implants should last the rest of your life.
