Sometimes, patients may have insufficient bone density to support a standard dental implant. In such instances, bone grafting may be required before the implant placement. Bone grafting involves adding bone material to the jaw to create a solid base for the implant. This additional step adds to the overall treatment duration.
Same-Day Dental Implants often require fewer instances of bone grafting as many patients that proceed with the procedure go for an All-on-4 total arch replacement approach. These procedures place dental implants directly into the strongest areas of the jaw bone, where grafting isn’t required.
However, grafting isn’t always avoidable, as not all patients have sufficient jaw bone density to support lifelong successful dental implants.
Eligibility is Different
As standard dental implants are a lengthy procedure with lots of oral tinkering, most specialists can make them possible for patients, even those suffering from severe oral complications.
Not everyone is a suitable candidate for same-day dental implants. The procedure requires a thorough examination to assess factors such as bone density, oral health, and the location of the missing tooth. Patients with sufficient bone structure and healthy gums are typically good candidates for same-day implants.
A thorough consultation can quickly reveal any risks involved with the procedure, so patients are never left with false hope until the day of a canceled procedure.
