Are same-day dental implants functional?
People with missing teeth require dental implants to have a fully functioning mouth. However, with busy schedules, we often don’t have time for multiple dental appointments. Finally, it’s possible to get dental implants installed in just one day.
– You must have healthy gums and a strong jawbone to qualify for a dental implant.
– Same-day implants still require x-rays, and the dentist must ensure that the dental implant fuses with your bone.
– You can receive a same-day temporary crown through a 3D CT scan technology.
Make an appointment with your dentist to determine if you’re a good candidate for a dental implant.
