But before we come to that, let’s see where and how same day dental implants score over their traditional counterpart.
Same Day Implants Vs. Traditional Implants
Same Day Implant system traces its history to Dr. Per Ingvar Branemark’s pioneering work on dental implants. The implants are now manufactured by a number of companies, such as Nobel Biocare, Straumann,and Biohorizons.
- Same day dental implants offer the following advantages:
- A titanium post is inserted, on which a temporary tooth/crown is placed. Usually the process takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
- Osseo-integration is quick and in 5 days you can have your permanent crown in place.
- The immediate load dental implant can be set at an angle, if the need be, and this removes the need for bone grafting.
- Traditional implants, on the other hand, are time-consuming and inconvenient, and involve the following:
- First surgery involves exposing the jaw bone and inserting a 4mm titanium post. This is followed by a waiting time of about 2 to 6 months until the bone grows around the post.
- Second surgery involves exposing the tip of the post and attaching a crown. If a bone graft is needed, another surgery is done to insert the titanium post adding another 4 to 8 months of healing time. This is very common as traditional implants can only be inserted vertically.
