Same Day Teeth

Same Day Teeth

Same Day Teeth Implants are in fact, exactly how they sound; You can leave the practise the same day with new teeth. It uses four dental implants to support a fixed bridge.

Your same day teeth implant Altrincham surgery is usually performed under a local anaesthetic, although some anxious patients prefer to have sedation to make the procedure more comfortable.

On the day of surgery any remaining teeth will be removed and the bone shaped before implants are placed. The gum is stitched closed but this is all usually tucked away under the bridge once it is fitted. The stitches dissolve in about 3 weeks after the surgery and do not need to be removed.

The first bridge to be fitted is a temporary, prototype bridge – in effect our best guess on the day of surgery following our detailed preparation with the technician. This bridge can be modified over the following months, with decisions being made ahead of making the final bridge about tooth colour, shape and position, ensuring that you end up with the best possible look and feel for your new teeth.

After 6 months the final bridge is made following a series of appointments at which your dentist will remove the temporary bridge, take impressions and other records so that the final bridge can be made to the ideal design for you.

Bone quality and volume

Every same day teeth implant we place needs bone for it to be retained and successful for a useful period of time. Our diagnosis of the bone quality and volume in strategic positions of the mouth has been greatly enhanced by the use of computer aided x-rays (the CT scan, short for Computerised Tomography) which takes a series of slice images and converts them into 3D images on screen. These can be used to view and plan surgical options, removing much of the experience informed guesswork of the past. We can now approach every case with a high degree of confidence that the intended result is achievable, resulting in high success rates for treatment between 95-100%.

Bone grafting

Where bone isn’t available in sufficient volume we have the option to graft bone from elsewhere in the body, or to help the body grow its own new bone with grafting materials. How the body reacts to these techniques is variable, and if we are considering harvesting bone from elsewhere in the body, we have a separate operation site and the associated pros and cons that go along with that procedure to consider.

The development of new techniques, such as the All-on-4 and Zygomatic implant procedures, removes the need for grafting in cases where bone is less than ideal. We can now plan and deliver these cases with a high level of success thanks to access to CT scans and the technical support we have developed here in the UK.

After implant placement surgery

After Implant surgery, some discomfort and swelling is quite normal and to be expected. It varies widely from person to person, but you will need to be prepared for 5-10 days recuperation and we would suggest you avoid any important diary commitments during that time.

The degree of swelling will vary between patients and may also depend on the number of implants placed and whether or not additional surgical procedures were carried out. Occasionally, along with the swelling, there may also be bruising of the skin overlying the area, although this should fade over a week. If you are a smoker or have a pre-existing medical condition that affects soft tissue healing, the amount of swelling may be greater. You may also experience some nasal and/or sinus stuffiness.

In the majority of cases the surgery element of the treatment is completed at this first stage, and no further surgery is required. Occasionally, depending on circumstances discovered at the time of surgery, it may be necessary to modify the plan, and secondary surgical procedures may then be necessary. You will be kept advised of any changes to the plan and how these will affect the progress of your treatment, but remember this is a relatively rare occurrence and surgery is completed in one visit in the majority of cases without complication.

If there are concerns about the healing and integration of one or more of the implants a minor procedure may be required to expose and check for firm, bony attachment. Recovery from these minor procedures is usually uneventful, but you will be advised what to expect in your case should this procedure be necessary.

Our 5* Reviews

“On my first visit to Hale Dental I was warmly welcomed and felt relaxed and comfortable. The staff are nurturing and professional. The waiting room has a positive and calm feeling. Jonny has made me feel at ease and in safe hands from the very start; he has a wealth of experience and a kind and gentle focus allowing me to feel confident. I would highly recommend this state of the art dentist where the staff listen and care.”
Paula Lewis
“Absolutely outstanding service and experience. My daughter’s teeth look amazing. The personal care and attention she received during her Invisalign treatment was fabulous. Great options for appointments and could not be happier. My other daughter went to Turret and our experience was polar opposite. Hale dental were great and took her treatment over too for a small cost to correct the outcome we were left with from Turret. Couldn’t recommend Hale Dental more highly.”
Andrea Sennett
“Being terrified of dental treatment I can’t say that I was excited at what was to come but, I can wholeheartedly say that Richard and his team made the whole experience calm, friendly, professional and pain free. I felt looked after and had no issues trusting their judgement. I’m very happy with the results and treatment received.”
Laura Duggan
“My local Dentist recommended I consult Richard and the Team at Hale Dental & Implant Clinic regarding issues I was having with an old implant. Despite being officially closed over the Christmas / New Year period, Richard reviewed X-rays and photos of my teeth and arranged to see me at the earliest opportunity. I subsequently received treatment that was simply first class in all aspects and have no hesitation is recommending to others.”
Graeme Freear
