Dental implants are one the most effective restorative dentistry options currently available. That’s because implants bond with the jaw to create a strong, natural foundation for everything from a single crown restoration to a full arch restoration.
But not every dental implant procedure is the same. From start to finish, a traditional implant procedure can take months to complete, while another type, known as Immediate Total Tooth Replacement, can be done in just a single appointment.
The Benefits of Immediate Total Tooth Replacement
The most obvious benefit is that the procedure can be done in just one appointment. As a result, patients who have considered implants in the past but were put off by how involved the process might be can finally enjoy a beautiful, stable smile again. What’s more, almost any patient is a candidate for Immediate Total Tooth Replacement, even patients who might not be a candidate for a traditional implant procedure.
Transforming Smiles in One Appointment
Your Immediate Total Tooth Replacement appointment will begin with a thorough exam with advanced radiographic studies. Then, using that information, our technicians will begin working on your restorations while Dr. DiGiallorenzo preps your smile.
During this stage, if we have any teeth to remove, we’ll do that, in addition to cleansing your mouth to get it at its absolute cleanest. Once that’s been done, your implant(s) will be placed and your restorations attached. In all, the process takes just a few hours to complete.
What’s more, using sedation dentistry, you can look forward to a relaxing experience that will feel like it only lasts for a few moments, but you awaken with a beautiful new smile you can feel proud of.
If you live in the Philadelphia area and would like to know more about Immediate Total Tooth Replacement, call Dr. DiGiallorenzo’s Collegeville or Williamsport office to schedule a consultation appointment. During your appointment, we can explain the Immediate Total Tooth Replacement procedure in detail and answer any questions you might have.
