Same-Day Dental Implants

Does being told you need dental implants to replace missing teeth make you worry about multiple surgeries and dentist appointments?

The dentists at 38th Street Dental in Austin, TX, can help provide you with dental implants and high-quality restorations in one day.

Could a procedure to place same-day dental implants restore your smile's health, form, and function during only one appointment?

A Same-Day Dental Implant Transformation

This patient came to Dr. Mike Meek and Dr. David J. Tasch to replace a fractured front tooth. Our experienced dentists suggested an implant-supported denture and coordinated with a trusted oral surgeon to place a same-day implant. Right after surgery, our dentist attached a high-quality denture to the implant, restoring the patient's smile in one day. Drs. Meek and Tasch are extensively trained in dental implant restoration.

Are Dental Implants Effective? 

/

This advanced surgical procedure is considered by dentistry professionals to be the best way to replace missing teeth and restore your smile and oral health. The implants themselves can help prevent jaw bone shrinkage, while attached restorations can fill in smile gaps and improve speaking and chewing abilities.

5 Benefits of Same-Day Implants

No Waiting for Restorations

After traditional implant surgery, patients go through months of healing before they receive their restorations. With a same-day dental implant restoration, you can enjoy a beautiful and functional smile right away.

Convenient Surgery Location

The oral surgeon we refer our patients to is literally next door. No driving to two different locations to complete the entire treatment process.

Only One Surgery

Traditional implants require two surgeries and healing periods. You don't even receive your final dental restoration until the second healing period is over.

Saves You Time and Money

Since you can see an oral surgeon and then our dentists back to back, you don't need multiple, expensive dental appointments.

A Comfortable Experience

Your oral surgeon will use local anesthetic and gentle sedation to keep you pain-free during the surgery. You'll still be under their effects when you come next door to our Austin, TX, practice for placement of your same-day restoration.

Who Wouldn't Qualify for Same-Day Implants?

If you are missing a full arch of teeth and have poor jawbone density, you may be better suited to All-on-4 implants instead of traditional dental implants.

  • If you are missing most or all of your teeth, the oral surgeon may perform an All-on-4 implant procedure, which involves four implants per top or bottom jaw.
  • In this case, our dentist would provide you with same-day temporary restorations to wear until your jaw and gums are completely healed. Then, your customized permanent restorations would be placed at our Austin, TX, office at a separate appointment.

The Same-Day Dental Implant Restoration Procedure

Once your candidacy for same-day implants is approved, your oral surgeon will extract any damaged teeth that need to be removed, if needed, and then surgically place a dental implant into your jawbone where a tooth is missing.
After surgery, you'll come to our office next door to have precise digital impressions taken of your smile. Your customized restoration will be created while you rest comfortably.
We can often complete the entire same-day dental implant restoration process in less than an hour, depending on how many teeth need replacement.
