Same Day Implants
Teeth in a day is a process where patients can have dental implants placed and fully functioning teeth attached in the space of one day.
Traditional implant procedures require between three and six months between placing an implant and restoring with the final replacement teeth. This ensures that following placement, the area completely heals and the implant bonds with the jaw, before it bears any load from the permanent replacement teeth. During this time, temporary restorations are often provided to ensure you are not left with any gaps.
With the latest technological advances, it is now possible to place a dental implant and restore with the final replacement crown, bridge or dentures immediately, ensuring you can walk out of the clinic with your new smile in one day.
Same day smile can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or to anchor a complete set with denture stabilisation.
The treatment is simple, fast and there is no need to wear a temporary denture.

Following the clinical assessment, impressions are taken for our laboratory to fabricate a temporary crown. In the surgical appointment, the tooth is extracted and the dental implant and temporary crown placed.
Sometimes a socket preservation is required to augment the bone, 3-6 months later the temporary crown is discarded and replaced with the final porcelain crown
Sometimes it may be possible to extract multiple teeth and place multiple implants in the same appointment – with the goal of creating an implant supported bridge. Sometimes it may be possible to extract an entire jaw of teeth and place multiple implants in the same appointment – this is called teeth in a day.
Dental implants have been used for over 30 years to replace missing teeth. As with natural teeth, they can be damaged by trauma and affected by gum disease and poor oral hygiene. However, if they are looked after like normal teeth, they can last a lifetime.
