We have seen that the treatments in which implants and teeth are completed in the same day have started to be applied frequently in recent years. Especially in patients whose oral conditions are suitable for this treatment and the jawbone is sufficient, implants can be applied on the same day, even if the teeth have been removed, and then the teeth can be inserted on the same day immediately after. Under normal conditions, the recovery after same day dental implants to fuse with the bone is 3 months in the upper jaw and 2 months in the lower jaw. In cases where fixed teeth are installed on them immediately after implants are placed, teeth are installed without waiting for 2-3 months, so it is important for patients to eat soft foods for 2 months
How long does the pain last after same day dental implants?
The same day implant treatment is performed with local anesthesia, it is a painless and reliable treatment. First of all, let’s note that there may be pain after the implant, and this condition is also extremely normal. But it is also not possible for the patient to feel any pain or pain during the procedure due to anesthesia. The implant operation is most often performed under local anesthesia. Sometimes, depending on the patient’s condition, sedation anesthesia may also be preferred. In this way, the patient’s pain during the procedure is also prevented.
However, after the effect of anesthesia has passed, a slight pain will occur. As part of implant treatment, the patient’s jawbone is intervened and the gums are also opened. Screw-like material needs to be inserted into the jawbone. For this, it is also necessary to open the gums. As a result, this intervention is a surgical procedure, and the presence of mild pain after it is already medically expected. For this reason, we cannot say that the pain never happens after the implant. The more pain is felt, the more closely it is related to the person’s pain threshold.
How is the recovery process after same day dental implants?
Implant treatment applied in the same day has become much more functional and aesthetic with technological advances made over time and measurements performed in a digital field, and its durability has increased at the same rate; at the same time, extended treatment times have now been realized even in a day.
In other words, it is possible to place both implants and put teeth on these implants within the same day. In addition, with these digital measurements and configurations, all the necessary stages of implant treatment are completed on the same day. Although the treatment is performed on the same day, it is necessary to wait a while for the recovery process after the same day dental implants. Since it is a normal implant treatment, an average recovery period of 3 month is prescribed.
How long does it take to recover after same day dental implants?
After the implant treatment is applied, there is a three-month recovery period to recover after same day dental implants. The bone and the implant must fuse with each other. After a period of three months, the top of the implant is opened and healing caps are attached. It is important that the healing caps remain on the implant for one week. In order for the tooth to be placed on the implant to be as natural as the real tooth, the healing head should stay on for a week. At the end of a week with the healing headlines, the measurement phase is started.
Measurement is done in two ways. Conventional and digital measurement methods are available. After the impression procedures, a tooth is placed on the implant within a week. The boiling time of the implant to the jawbone in the area where the implant is inserted begins in a period of 4-5 weeks, and recovery occurs in a period of 8-12 weeks. In implant applications, the implant healing time, which is the boiling time of the implant to the jawbone, has been reduced to two months. However, in some cases, the need for implants to be placed with a certain slope arises. In such cases, the treatment period is slightly extended because the teeth that have been made adapt to this area a little late. Problems that occur in this way are called unwanted problems. In order not to be exposed to such a situation, treatment planning should be done very well.
