If you are one of the 178 million Americans who are missing one or more teeth and are considering dental implants, don’t be put off by the fact that traditional implants require several visits and months of healing. With our Done in One™ process, you can have a full mouth of teeth after just one visit.
The Traditional Process
During the traditional implant process, the tooth is extracted if necessary, the bone is grafted if there is not enough jawbone to support the implant and then the implant is placed directly in the jawbone with surgery. The implant is made of a titanium rod that functions as the tooth’s root.
Next, the implant must heal and attach to the bone to stimulate it to grow. Once the healing process is done, the abutment is placed in the gum and then requires time to heal. After that, the tooth is finally attached to the abutment and you have a brand new tooth.
The Faster Process
Understandably, it’s often difficult for a patient to find time to spend six months healing while they wait for their tooth to be replaced. That’s why Dr. Doshi offers full arch dental implants for those who qualify.
Done in One™ may not be a good decision for every patient, but is a valuable option to good candidates who have simple, straightforward cases. Sometimes, the tooth can be removed, the bone site modified and the abutment placed at the same time. This means one visit rather than the three that are required with the traditional implant process.
Once the surgery is done, you’ll receive your hybrid bridge within 48 hours, completing your treatment process. You get a whole new smile in just two short days.
