dental implantsThe term "dental implants" often elicits widespread groaning and panic. Getting a new tooth or crown is usually associated with long, painful procedures that make people hesitate to seek dental restoration.

Your oral health is important, and you should know that dental technology has greatly improved in the past decade. These days, a combination of two unique and revolutionary tools are making dental implants easier than ever. These tools being used in conjunction with one another has made one day implants and crowns possible, which means you can spend less time in the dentist's chair and more time enjoying your new smile.

One day restoration begins when Imtec mini implants are inserted into the affected areas. They are placed without exposing the bone, which enables them to be loaded immediately and requires zero healing time. Imtec mini implants are titanium pieces that are placed directly into the patient's jaw to replace a missing tooth. This is the first step in your one day implant procedure, but the magic has only just begun.

The CEREC 3D System is the backbone of one day dental implants. Developed by Prof. Werner H. Mörmann and Dr. Marco Brandestini at the University of Zurich in 1980, this technology has been proven as a long-term solution for dental restoration. Clinical studies have shown that the success rate of CEREC procedures is 95.5% following a period of nine years and 84% after 18 years.

CEREC is a highly advanced and specialized computer program that takes an optical impression of your implant, which is then used to create realistic metal-free crowns, onlays, and veneers. CEREC makes it possible to restore unhealthy teeth, remove defective fillings, and/or place cosmetic veneers in just one appointment. The procedure is simple, painless, and requires just one visit, unlike traditional crowns. Your CEREC crowns will look and feel like you've had them for years, when in reality they're just a few hours old.

You should know that one day restoration is only available at the best dental offices, so be sure to find a dentist that offers these procedures before committing to a family dentistry. Also, one day dental implants may not be the best solution for you, which your dentist will notify you of upon examining your teeth.

In the meantime, take solace in knowing that faster, less painful dental implants are available to you. Maybe one day you'll be reading an article on 5 minute dental implants. Okay, maybe not  fast, but you get the point.
