Dental implants are considered the next best thing to your natural teeth and the logical solution when you’re missing a tooth. While some dental implant therapy can take months to complete, our dental implant specialists, MariaElena Rodriguez, DDS, and Perry R. Klokkevold, DDS, MS, FACD, at PermaDent® Dental Implant Center in Torrance, California, offer same-day implants that can restore your smile without the long wait. Call our office to schedule a consultation to see if you’re a good candidate for same-day implants.
Same-day implants are a type of dental implant that provides you with an immediate replacement for your missing tooth. Some dental implant therapies can take 6-12 months from start to finish, but with a same-day implant, your smile restoration takes a few hours.
Our implant specialists determine if you’re a good candidate for same-day implants during a consultation.
During the consultation, we review your medical and dental history, examine your mouth, and obtain X-rays to determine the best dental implant placement option for you.
To be considered a good candidate for same-day implants, you must:
You may not be a good candidate for same-day implants if you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), use bisphosphonates (medication for osteoporosis), or have poorly controlled diabetes. These conditions may put you at risk of dental implant failure.
We place your same-day implants at our office. To make sure you’re comfortable throughout the three-step same-day dental implant procedure, we use a local anesthetic to numb the area of your mouth undergoing treatment.
First, we remove the tooth or root we’re planning to replace. Then, we select the implant that’s going to provide the tightest fit and place it in your jaw.
Finally, we secure a temporary crown to your dental implant to complete the process. Once your implant fully heals and bonds with your jawbone, which occurs within 4-5 months of placement, we can attach your permanent crown.
With same-day implants, you may find that you’re able to resume your usual activities a lot faster, including eating and talking without worry. Same-day dental implants have the same rate of success as traditional implants, but with less pain and time.
Each dental implant we place at PermaDent Dental Implant Center includes a warranty, which isn’t offered by any other dental practice.
