4. How Long Is The Same Day Teeth Healing Period?

The minimum biological healing time for Same Day Teeth TM or any dental implant placement is 6-8 weeks. In this instance healing refers to the unique ability of the titanium implant to fuse to your bone in a process called osseointegration (“osseo” – bone and “integration” – to fuse to or join). Healing or osseointegration is complete when the titanium implant and bone are virtually inseparable. Read More

7. What Is Immediate Loading Of Teeth?

Immediate loading is the process of immediately attaching the prosthesis after the placement of a dental implant. In this case, you don’t wait for the implant to heal or for the implant to fuse with the jawbone.

Immediate loading is an important part of the Same Day Teeth™ protocol, and can only be offered when you have adequate stability and bone quality to support the implant during the healing period. The implant or implants must be stable enough to support the load during this healing phase.
