Tooth loss can change the way you eat, how you speak, and even how you feel about yourself. Leaving missing teeth untreated can truly limit your life. But the dread of starting a long process and numerous dental visits to replace just one missing tooth can prevent even the most motivated from calling their doctor. After decades of refining dental implant technology and countless implant success stories, modern dentistry has significantly shortened your treatment time. In just one day you can receive a single tooth, a bridge of teeth, or a full arch of new teeth supported by reliable dental implants! You can arrive with a gap in your smile and leave our surgical practice with not only the dental implants your health needs, but the smile your confidence desires, too. Interested in experiencing teeth in a day in Long Beach, California? We offer it right here at Silegy OMFS!
We can replace a single missing tooth with the closest thing to natural teeth—a single dental implant. The dental implant post functions as the tooth root, stimulating healthy bone growth, and offering reliable function. Each implant is restored with a custom dental crown offering a seamless smile and natural-looking aesthetics. No one will know the difference!
Traditional dental bridges require you to weaken adjacent teeth to act as the foundation of your new bridge. Instead, we leave healthy teeth untouched and use one or more dental implants to support a new bridge of teeth. This is ideal for those with two or more missing teeth in a row.
Dentures aren’t the only way to restore your smile. You can replace one complete arch of teeth or a full mouth of teeth with full mouth dental implants. Using four or more strategically placed dental implants, your new bridge of teeth will restore 99% function and a lasting boost to your confidence.
Teeth in a day dental implants at our Long Beach, CA practice are only possible because our oral surgeon, Tim Silegy has mastered an innovative protocol for same-day placement. Partnering with leading implant manufacturers we offer “immediate load” dental implants which are specifically designed to maximize stability and support crowns and bridges right after they’ve been surgically placed.
The first phase is to visit our practice and discuss your unique health, function, and aesthetic goals. We’ll examine advanced imaging and perform an exam to evaluate your current health. Although many patients already qualify for teeth in a day solutions, with surgical training and experience we can offer preparatory treatments like bone grafting in the same surgical visit to ensure your candidacy.
Before your next visit, our team will use 3D imaging and impressions to plan the precise placement of your dental implant(s). Our goal is to maximize final function as well as your smile aesthetics. Each implant post must be placed at the precise location, angle, and depth in order to make same-day results possible. Although a complex procedure, pre-planning makes the process simple for you and us on the day of your surgery.
When you return for your surgery, we’ll make sure you feel comfortable with sedation dentistry treatment. We’ll then harness our pre-planning to strategically place your dental implant(s) into your jawbone. If we were able to achieve proper stability and torque (as we frequently do), you’ll be able to have your new tooth or bridge of teeth placed in the same day!
