Immediate Implants

It is now possible to have beautiful new replacement teeth positioned in just one day!

Immediate implants, also known as the ‘Teeth in an Hour’, ‘Teeth in a Day’, or ‘Same Day Teeth’, are exceptionally popular among our patients who desire a faster approach to restoring their smiles. With this procedure our patients can enjoy the benefits of an immediate and beautiful new smile with renewed function in less time with less trauma.

Traditional implant treatment could take many months, and some treatments could take over a year to complete. At Lidums Dental we are constantly striving to ensure our processes and treatments are streamlined in order to provide total convenience and quality. Where patients would normally use temporary dentures whilst waiting for their implants to heal, at Lidums Dental we are often able to provide immediate implant treatment on the same day.

Gaining a beautiful smile fast

We understand patients would prefer to have replacement teeth as soon as possible, and with appropriate skill, experience and teamwork, it is possible to provide implant teeth on the same day. You must be a suitable candidate in order to benefit from immediate implants:

  • Good bone and soft tissue
  • Good healing capacity (no health or medication issues)
  • Good after-care and maintenance

If issues are present, a slower and more traditional approach may be necessary in order to gain the best possible results. In this situation a temporary denture may be required.

Single tooth immediate implants

Following trauma or tooth failure, a fixed single replacement tooth can now often be provided on the same day as implant treatment. This tooth is for smiling only and not for chewing. The implant requires 2 months of undisturbed healing (to allow bone integration/healing) and therefore we ask that you do not bite on this site if you are having only a single implant. (With multiple implants, immediate chewing function may be possible.) View our case study here.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
