Implants in One Day

Implants in one day?  Is it really possible?  Believe it or not, if you fit the right criteria, you can go from having teeth to implants in one day.  You may have seen commercials for this procedure or perhaps a friend recommended it and your interest is peaked…….well never fear, Rigby Advanced Dental is on the cutting edge of technology and offers this procedure right here in Bee Cave & Lakeway, TX.  As a trained Prosthodontist, Dr. Rigby has the extensive knowledge and experience to perform these difficult implant procedures to ensure the best possible outcome.  With that being said, there is a lot you should know about this treatment, so please before any decision has been made, thoroughly research the topic to familiarize yourself with the procedures involved and discuss you concerns with Dr. Rigby.

How does it work?
Once you have had a thorough exam, we will discuss your treatment options.  If we have decided that your teeth require removal, you may be interested in implants.  You can have implants to support your new teeth. You may not even need to wear dentures – ever.
In one procedure we will take out your remaining teeth, place implants (4 to 6 in each jaw), and place a temporary implant bridge for each jaw.  You will leave the office with your new implant bridges – they look just like teeth.

Expect several follow up visits and a soft food diet for the next 3 to 4 months.  After that time, we make your final implant bridges.  This healing period is designed to allow the implants to fuse to the bone and your gums to heal. It allows us to make any needed changes to the teeth for the best cosmetic outcome.  The temporary implant bridges prevent you from needing to wear a removable denture.
