There's no denying that dental implants are a great investment. They're often considered the gold standard for tooth replacement, and for good reason—when done correctly, they can last a lifetime. So, when we hear about "one-day implants," it's no wonder we're intrigued.
The fact is dental implants cannot be done in one day.
The dental implant process begins with a consultation with Dr. Young to see if you're a good candidate for the procedure. If you are, the next step is to have the implants placed in your jawbone. Once the implant is in place, you'll need to wait for it to heal and fuse to your bone. This typically takes about 3-4 months for the process of osseointegration to complete. Next, the abutment (support post) will be attached to the implant. Finally, you'll get your new tooth (or teeth) placed on top of the abutment.
The final step will complete your smile. Then, meticulous care of your dental implant with good home oral care and professional dental visits will help you get the most out of your investment.
