Can Dental Implants be done in a day?
At the Perfect Smile Studios, we have undertaken great strides in innovation towards our dental implant treatments.
We can now also provide Implants in a Day.
There are a number of ways we can help to reduce treatment time when having dental implants:
The first way is to ensure that we have as minimal as possible appointments for the whole treatment plan.
This means that you can reduce the actual treatment time by getting more done in a single visit. See more information.
Most of the actual surgical implant treatment will be done in one day, but a further two appointments will be necessary after a few months to produce a porcelain tooth on top of the implant.
We will have to wait for the dental implant to connect properly with the bone. See implant success.
The second way is to consider “Implants in a Day”.
Implants in a Day
This is a newer treatment and still doesn’t have as many years of clinical understanding as does most traditional implants.
For this reason we are very selective about which case should be appropriate for “Implants in a Day”.
There are two ways we may go about this:
- Immediate Placement Implants
- Immediate Loading Implants
The Treatment Process for Implants in a Day – Immediate Placement
This technique is used when a tooth is in need of extraction and we have planned to subsequently position a dental implant in its place.
The process is that the dental implant is placed directly in the bone immediately after a tooth has been extracted. They are also called Immediate Placement Implants.
They key to success is to make sure that osseointegration (connection with the bone) has occurred fully and completely before any pressure is allowed on the artificial aspect of the tooth in the mouth.
After the implant, a plastic tooth will be placed on top until proper healing has occurred after which the tooth can be changed to a porcelain more aesthetic one.
The Treatment Process for Implants in a Day – Immediate Loading
The process here is that a dental implant is surgically placed in the bone.
Then on the same day a temporary plastic artificial tooth is put on top for immediate use with chewing or as we call it Immediate Loading.
The placement of the porcelain crown is the next stage. The dentist will need to assess the connection that has occurred before this stage takes place.
Only after we feel that the implant area has healed correctly would we continue to make a porcelain permanent tooth. Read about the time plan.
“Implants in a Day is a revolutionary step in dental implant surgery.” See results.
Detailed Planning Required Prior to Implants in a Day
Regardless of which system we choose, the most important thing is to make sure that it is the safest and most long-term treatment for your case. Click here to see why dental implants are a good idea.
For this reason, we undergo a highly detailed and comprehensive assessment which highlights the basic foundation which we have to build on.
We also need to assess the quality and quantity of remaining bone to help us select the most suitable dental implant.
Thereafter, we will assess your bite to make sure that we treatment plan for a harmonious and stable bite, that doesn’t put any undue stress or strain on the implant teeth.
We will also assess any risk factors such as gum disease and discuss this with you to find a way forward.
It is advisable to book in for a complimentary consultation to explore your options further. Please call our studios on 01992 552115 and we will be happy to help.

I have been visiting Perfect Smile for couple years for on going treatment including implants and Veneers. I developed an abscess over Christmas Holiday with a fever where I passed out on my kitchen floor. I did email Gurs not expecting him to reply within an hour or so (especially it being the festive season) Gurs suggested I should get to the hospital to get antibiotics and emergency dentist next day. Gurs kept in touch daily to check on my welfare. A week later I was well enough to travel from Norfolk to Perfect Smile. The following week Negan did root canal. The team are first class, who make you welcome and always asking if I would like a drink. The treatment has cost me thousands. Money well spent!! I now have The Perfect Smile.
