By far, the most advanced in the dental field today involve implants. With success rates in certain situations of almost 100% and with over 25 years of service in most patients, it may be a procedure that needs to be performed only once in a patient’s life. In many situations, a tooth or teeth can be replaced permanently, esthetically and functionally superior to the natural tooth.
Also called same-day implants or Teeth in a Day, immediate load dental implants allow placement of a temporary tooth during the same appointment as your dental implant placement. According to a children’s dental care specialist this is something that is not done on kids regularly.
Implants have a titanium root that is placed into the jaw where it fuses with the bone. Replacement of a missing tooth does not require removal of healthy tooth material from other teeth, nor the placement of removable pieces. Dental implants are do-overs, allowing patients to regain that lost tooth permanently and perhaps forever.
