Dental implants are a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. The process typically involves inserting an implant in the jawbone, waiting for the implant to integrate with the jawbone, and finally, inserting a crown on top of the implant.
Dental implants normally require a process that involves at least two surgeries separated by two or three months, which is normally inconvenient for dental tourists.
However, for most patients, the process can now be done in a single day by inserting a prosthesis that is basically a complete dental implant. This means that only one trip is necessary. This can be done when the patient meets specific requirements, such as good general health and good jawbone structure, among others. A comprehensive study of your specific situation, which may include x-rays and medical history, would be needed to establish whether you’re a candidate for same day dental implants.
Most patients don’t have to come back for a follow-up check-up, or can get the check-up back home.
