Restore Your Smile with Teeth-in-a-Day
There are many types of dental implants with Jackson periodontists, Dr. Roger Parkes and Dr. R. Clarke Stewart, to restore your smile. Some just take longer than others. Teeth-in-a-Day (immediate load dental implants) is an exciting dental implant innovation that replaces teeth in about one hour at our practice.
Unlike standard dental implants, which are highly successful but require several months of waiting before they are permanent and fully functional, Teeth-in-a-Day technology lets you visit Drs. Parkes and Stewart’s office and leave with new, functioning teeth on the same day. Immediate load implants are also ideal for immediate placement following an extraction.
The difference between traditional dental implants and Teeth-in-a-Day dental implants in Jackson with our doctors:
- Time: Teeth-in-a-Day are ideal for patients needing a functioning tooth replacement solution fast – in about one hour. Traditional dental implants need up to six months to completely integrate with the bone. The results are well worth the wait, but only for patients who have the time.
- Office visits: Teeth-in-a-Day implants require just one office visit. Traditional dental implants require several office visits. More than one surgery is needed – one to install the implant and another one six months later to uncover the implant from beneath the gum line.
- Bridges and dentures: Teeth-in-a-Day are just that – actual teeth you can use the same day you get them. Dr. Parkes or Dr. Stewart will place a restoration piece immediately after placing the implant. Traditional dental implants require patients to use a dental appliance (dentures or bridge) or even go without a tooth, until the implants are fully integrated and ready to support the permanent teeth.
Not all patients meet the criteria for a Teeth-in- a-Day. One of our doctors will examine your mouth and discuss your situation to see if you qualify.
