Often times it is possible to handle the extractions of hopeless teeth, placement of abutments and temporary restoration in the same day for you. This method will not only reduce the number of treatment visits, but also reduce the amount of post-operative discomfort. If the appropriate number of implants is placed, patients are able to get their temporary implant supported restoration on the very same day.

Implants are man-made "anchors" that look like screws and replace your natural tooth roots. Dental implants consist mainly of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, there they become a stable base for one or more replacement teeth. Mini implants, which are smaller than regular dental implants can be used to stabilize ta removable denture. When implants are properly placed, the surrounding bone rapidly fuses with them and become part of the patient’s jaw. Subsequently, fabricated teeth can be attached to them for a permanent fixed or removable type of tooth loss solution.
Whether a person is missing one, several or all of his or her teeth, implants can restore speech and function easily and effectively.
When a person loses a tooth, that individual's body gradually shrinks the bone in that area. That would lead to shrinkage of the gum tissue. An implant, however stimulates the bone and prevents further shrinkage of the surrounding bone and gum.

Implants are the closest match for replacing missing teeth. Although fixed bridges are certainly an acceptable method in restoring missing teeth, their major draw back is that a couple or more teeth that are going to serve as anchors to support the bridge have to be reduced in order to make space for the bridge and allow the laboratory to put material in between teeth without interfering with a person’s bite. Additionally, if a person does not have at least two anchor teeth or the teeth are not strong enough, then a fixed bridge is not a viable option.
For individuals wearing or needing partial dentures, implants can increase the retention of their prosthesis or eliminate them all together. If a person feels that their false teeth are too bulky (they move when speaking or chewing), gets mouth sores because of their false teeth or that they would like to improve the looks of their smile, then implants are the answer. Often times, even one or two implants can transform an-ill fitting prosthesis into a secure and pleasant prosthesis.
Full dentures used to be the only option available for these groups of people. However, dentures would often cause a myriad of problems such as:
Loose dentures requiring adhesives; Trouble with speech and communication; Being removable and not being fixed in the mouth like teeth; Cause sore spots.
But not anymore with implants. In most cases, a person can secure his or her lower full dentures with just two implants. Sometimes, even the existing denture can be retrofitted to snap onto the implants.
