IMMEDIATE LOAD DENTAL IMPLANTS
at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry
Immediate Load Dental Implants?
Losing one or more teeth can greatly harm your oral health, damage your self-esteem, and stop you from smiling or laughing in public. Living without a complete smile for more than a day can quickly alter your psychological well-being and impair your ability to eat and speak.
Luckily, at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, patients don’t have to live toothless for more than a day. For patients who qualify, we offer immediate load dental implants which allow them to leave our office with an attractive temporary restoration on the same day that their implants are placed.
When you attend your implant consultation with one of our Triad dentists, we’ll be able to get a more accurate view of your oral health and determine your candidacy.
WHO CAN BENEFIT
From Immediate Load Dental Implants?
If you’re looking for a quick, effective tooth replacement solution that allows you to feel confident to smile again and restore eating and speaking functions, then immediate load implants are right for you.
Using advanced technology to closely examine your oral health, our Triad dentists will first ensure you have sufficient bone density so your dental implant post will remain strong and secure for years to come. We’ll also check your gums for infection because gum disease can also impede the dental implant process.
If you don’t quite qualify for immediate load implants, we’ll have to perform one of our supplemental procedures such as bone grafting or gum disease treatment to restore your health and prepare your smile for implants.
If you’re currently in great oral health and don’t require a preliminary treatment, then we can begin your immediate load implant treatment at your next appointment. In just one day, our efficient process will help you attain a new smile that’s no longer affected by tooth loss.
Following your consultation and pre-procedure exam to remove any damaged teeth or tissue, the immediate load dental implant process will then involve:
1. The surgical placement of your dental implant in your jawbone and placing of a temporary, full-functioning, natural-looking crown to cover the implant so you don’t have to live without teeth any longer.
2. During your healing period, the process of osseointegration will occur which is when the implant post integrates with your jawbone and provides stable support for your final restoration.
3. You’ll come back to receive your final restoration that’s been customized to match the shape, color, and size of your natural teeth so it can blend beautifully with the rest of your smile.
4. After your immediate load implant treatment is complete, all you need to do to help ensure its success is maintain good oral hygiene, use the right dental products, and return to our office for your regular check-ups.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are immediate load dental implants safe?
Yes, immediate dental implants are safe. In one study, the success rate was between 93% to 96% after two years of placement. Certain risk factors such as smoking may decrease the success rate.
At Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, your oral health is the cornerstone of our practice. That’s why we screen our patients to ensure they’re appropriate candidates for the procedure, leading to increased success over time. Choosing a highly qualified dentist, such as our dentists at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, will help to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome.
Are immediate load dental implants functional?
Immediate load implants function just like traditional implants. After a few days of recovery, patients are advised to return to their normal diet. This helps to stimulate bone growth and increases the success rate of the implant. Patients who follow this advice and other aftercare instructions from their dentists have a higher rate of success and are less likely to experience implant failure.
If you have any issues with your immediate load dental implant, schedule an appointment right away by calling (336) 434-3186. We’ll examine your gums and teeth and determine the best course of action to remedy the situation.
Can the implant be placed immediately after extraction?
In some cases, an immediate dental implant can be placed either the same day or within 48 hours after your tooth is extracted. For a more accurate time frame, it’s best to schedule a consultation by calling (336) 434-3186. During this visit, one of our knowledgeable dentists will examine your oral health and provide you with a customized treatment plan which will include a precise timeline.
How much does an immediate load dental implant cost?
The cost for an immediate load dental implant is determined on a case-by-case basis. For a more accurate cost, it’s best to schedule a consultation with one of our knowledgable dentists at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry by calling (336) 434-3186. At the consultation, we’ll examine your oral health and provide you with a customized treatment plan including a precise cost.
The cost for an immediate load dental implant is often more affordable than a traditional implant because you’ll only have one surgery, you won’t need a bone graft, and temporary restorations are unnecessary. We also offer flexible financing options so you won’t have to go a day without a complete smile. Be sure to mention the $50 off coupon for first-time patients.
What is the recovery following the immediate load dental implant procedure?
Following the immediate load implant procedure, patients rarely complain about gum sensitivity or pain. In addition to following any recommendations by your knowledgable dentist here at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, you’ll want to continue following a regular oral hygiene routine.
Make sure to brush twice per day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, floss daily, and rinse in between meals. Any discomfort can easily be managed with a cold compress and over-the-counter medications.
If you experience any adverse effects, be sure to contact us immediately by calling (336) 434-3186. Our knowledgeable staff will help answer any questions you may have and get you in for an appointment right away.
