Same Day Implants
Owings Mill, MD
Would you like to receive a new smile in one dental visit? Dr. Nova can perform immediate implantation of dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth. The dental implant placement goes directly into the extraction site and can support a temporary restoration so that you can leave with a functional smile. After a healing period, the final restoration is placed. This allows for the best possible long-term outcome.
For patients with a full arch of missing teeth, the same-day implants process or All On "X" can be a life-changing experience. After your procedure, you can once again eat, speak and smile with comfort and confidence.
SAME DAY IMPLANTS: WHAT TO EXPECT
The process for placing a dental implant and restoration on the same day starts with advanced treatment planning. Dr. Nova uses 3-D CBCT scanning to evaluate your dentition and create a treatment plan. Advanced digital technology plays an important role in a successful result, helping Dr. Nova strategically place implants for long-term stability and oral health. With immediate loading, Dr. Nova can have the patient walk out with a temporary dental crown and/or dental bridge. This experience is a unique feature of the Ankylos Dental Implant system.
WHAT IS ALL ON X?
The term "All On 4" is commonly used to refer to the placement of 4 (or more) dental implants that will support an immediate load denture. In many cases, more than four implants are needed to ensure a stable result. Dr. Nova will determine the appropriate number of implants needed to secure your denture and use our in-office technology to choose the most suitable placement based on bone health and jaw structure.
3-D COMPUTER GUIDED IMPLANT TECHNOLOGY
Dr. Nova plans the implant placement using scans of the mouth to create a 3-D digital model of the jaw bone. Then, Dr. Nova performs the implant placement virtually using sophisticated placement software. After this virtual implantation, Dr. Nova transfers this information into the operating room using a computer-generated surgical guide. This technology allows for a high level of precision when placing the implants and significantly reduces the risk of implant failure.
