Why we don’t do “Teeth in a day” implants.
There is a lot of advertising regarding immediate loading implants and “teeth in one day”. Bone requires time to heal and every patient’s bone is different (bone density), even within the same patient’s mouth. Once dental implants are loaded with the porcelain crowns or dentures, they will be subject to stress from the bite and chewing. The conventional design of the dental implant is very similar to that of the natural tooth root with very friendly treads, and in implant designs for immediate loading cases, the treads are very sharp and rough transmitting more stress to the bone at the moment of chewing. As a result, it is more common to find that patients with same day implants have suffered bone loss in less than 15 years, compared to patients with conventional implants which have had no bone loss within the same period of time.
Bone requires a minimum healing period of four and a half months for the maxilla (upper jaw) and four months for the mandible (lower jaw). Every patient and case is different and it is our job as your dentist to evaluate and explain this in detail.
