Implants In A Day Right For You? Thoughts From Dr. Grey

Hello, I’m Dr. Grey Kantor here in San Rafael, California, with Kantor Dental Group Aesthetic, Dentistry and Implantology.

Today, I want to talk about Implants in a Day. You may have seen the commercials, “Implants all in one day”. And that’s very possible for some people. But single tooth implants, in a back tooth, we generally don’t do implants in a day.

The reason why is those teeth take a lot of force. And a back tooth, a single tooth, really can’t take that sort of load from an initially placed implant, recently placed implant. Most of the time people talked about Implants in a Day, either for a single front tooth. Which we can replace that same day, right? We always replace front teeth in the same day. We don’t want you go away being toothless. So, first concern is, you never leave toothless from most dental offices, especially ours. We never send people away toothless.

The second is if it’s a full set of dentures, right? All your teeth, right? If you’re getting all of your teeth done with implants, for example, “all on four” is very common method. That type of method you can do in a day because it’s spreading the load out among four implants. You have your… and the denture going over your teeth. It’s also resting on the guns and spreading the load out on the four implants. So, there’s not too much pressure on just a single implant, which is why you can do it in a day.

We offer that service here as well. But if you are looking for single implant in a day, most of the time that’s going to be a temporary and they give you a final shortly after that.

If you have any questions or concerns, definitely give us a call. My name is Dr. Grey Kantor here with Kantor Dental Group in San Rafael, California. Please subscribe or comment below about your experience with Implants in a Today, we’d love to hear from you.
