Dental implants are used when there has been extensive damage or decay to a particular tooth beyond the point of repair. This may occur on a tooth that has previously had a root canal or a tooth that has been purposely or accidentally removed for any reason. Although many people believe it’s a long process, it’s possible to get dental implants in one clinical appointment.
How the Implant Procedure Works
A titanium screw is placed into the jawbone where the missing tooth is. A bridge will then be attached to the implant. Implants will look and feel as if they are your natural teeth. Whether you need to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth, implants can help get your smile back quickly and effectively.

Same-day implants provide numerous benefits, including:
- Natural Looking
- Long-lasting results that come in a day
