At Simpson Dental Associates, we do it every day!
Are implant supported teeth in one day really an option? Absolutely, at Simpson Dental Associates, we do it every day. Let me explain how and why it works. Implants are positioned into the bone and over time, the bone fuses to the implant. This is called osseointegration. When the implant is first put in the bone it has “primary stability”. When you connect 4-6 implants together, they are supported by each other. This greatly increases the primary stability by “splinting” the implants together. This allows you to immediately load implants that have been splinted together. Keep in mind that the minimum number of implants that we immediately load is 4 in the lower jaw and 6 in the upper jaw. The reason for that is the bone is much denser in the lower jaw than the upper jaw. At Simpson Dental Associates, we have been providing these services since 1981. Why don’t all dentists do this? It takes special training and very good lab support to provide these services.
