Are Same-Day Implants Right For You?

At Greater Atlanta Oral Facial Surgery, we offer teeth in an hour in Atlanta. But are same-day implants from Dr. Abtin Shahriari right for you? In this blog, we’ll take a look at the basics of how same-day implants work, their benefits, and who is typically a good candidate for same-day dental implants.

Understanding How Same-Day Dental Implants Work

While you will get your implants and new teeth in a day, you must come in for some preparatory appointments at Greater Atlanta Oral Facial Surgery before you can get your new smile.

To begin the process, Dr. Shahriari will take x-rays and a CT scan of your mouth to determine if you’re a good fit for same-day dental implants. Then, if you’re approved, our team will use a computer program to develop your surgical plan, based on a 3D model of your jaw.

Then, we will work with a dental lab to get a surgical guide and a temporary or permanent set of tooth restorations. Once these arrive, you’ll come to Greater Atlanta Oral Facial Surgery for your surgical appointment.

Dr. Shahriari will clean and numb your mouth, then place your dental implants precisely using surgical guides. Then, once all of your implants are in place, he will attach your permanent or temporary replacement teeth. You’ll be sent home with a brand new smile.

The Benefits Of Same-Day Dental Implants

So, why should you choose same-day dental implants from Greater Atlanta Oral Facial Surgery? Here are just a few benefits of our “teeth in an hour” process.

  • Immediate tooth restoration – In traditional implants, you often have to wait 3-6 months to get your new tooth. But with a same-day dental implant, you can get a brand new tooth or a whole new set of teeth in less than an hour.
  • Extremely precise treatment – Because we use a 3D CT scan and surgical guides, we can place dental implants with less trauma, and ensure that your new teeth are positioned perfectly.
  • Faster healing and recovery time – In general, it takes less time to heal and recover from same-day implants due to the advanced technology that we use at Greater Atlanta Oral Facial Surgery. That means you can get back to your normal routine more quickly.
  • Spend less time at the dentist’s office – Compared to the process of getting traditional implants, you’ll spend much less time at the dentist’s office if you choose same-day dental implants in Atlanta. This makes same-day dental implants a great choice if you have a busy schedule.

Am I A Good Candidate For Same-Day Dental Implants In Atlanta?

To be a good candidate for same-day implants at Greater Atlanta Oral Facial Surgery, your mouth must be healthy, and you must have enough jaw bone mass to support your implants and your new teeth.

If you need preparatory surgeries, like extractions to pull damaged teeth or bone grafts to repair your jaw tissue, these must be done before you can get teeth in a day. Dr. Shahriari can discuss these treatments in further detail after your consultation at our office.
