Teeth-in-an-Hour - Salinas, CA
One of the newest innovations in dental implant technology is Teeth-in-an-Hour dental implants also known as same day dental implants. With traditional implants, patients need to make multiple office visits and wait several months before receiving fully functioning permanent teeth. The Teeth-in-an-Hour dental implant procedure allows patients to walk in and out of our office with new teeth in a single visit!
Traditional Dental Implants vs. Same Day Dental Implants
Traditional dental implants need to be left undisturbed for up to six months until the healing process is complete. This waiting period ensures that osseointegration takes place between the bone and the implant, and the result is a strong and stable implant. While these types of implants are a viable solution for patients with missing teeth, the waiting period may require the patient to wear a bridge, denture, or be without a tooth.
Immediate load implants, or same day dental implants like Teeth-in-a-Day, do not have this waiting period. Dr. Andres F. Herrera offers this implant solution for Salinas and Watsonville, CA patients and can place a restoration piece without the six month waiting period associated with traditional implants. You can walk out of our office with new teeth that function normally the very same day. This procedure typically takes one hour and the implants can be placed immediately after an extraction.
Best Candidates for Same Day Dental Implants
Not all patients will qualify for same day dental implants. Dr. Herrera will need to perform a thorough examination to make sure that you meet all criteria for optimal results. If the Teeth-in-an-Hour procedure is not a good match for you, Dr. Herrera can talk with you about other tooth replacement procedures that offer similar benefits but may involve a waiting period.
