Immediate Implant Placement
Immediate implant placement is central to the smile in a day concept. This a technique that involves the surgical extraction of a tooth followed by placement of an endosseous implant on the same day. This allows for the simultaneous healing of the extraction site and the implant site, resulting in a quicker healing turnaround compared to individual procedures. At the onset of implant dentistry, Per-Ingvar Branemark (the inventor of modern implantology) always recommended placement of dental implants 3-6 months (delayed placement) after the dental extraction. The design of endosseous implants have changed significantly since the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s and the modern designs facilitate stability of the implant in different bone types leading to immediate placement.
Immediate placement is a minimally invasive procedure favoured by our specialist dentists because:
- It offers the ability to fit a temporary crown or bridge supported by the newly-placed implants. This is very convenient for patients.
- It also supports superior aesthetics in the immediate term because of the reduction in gum recession.
However, it’s important to note that immediate placement requires certain criteria to be met. The implant must be sufficiently stable inside the bone (measured by implant stability quotient) and the bone must therefore be dense and strong. There must be a sufficient amount of soft tissue for the immediate procedure, and there’s a potential risk of bone volume decreasing through the healing process. Additionally, chewing hard food can lead to implant failure, and there may be a recession of gums surrounding the treatment area.
Immediate Implant Loading
Immediate loading is a key component of the Smile in a Day dental implant procedure, which allows for the placement of a prosthesis, such as a crown or a full arch of teeth on the same day as implant placement. This means that you can have fixed teeth in just one day, eliminating the need for multiple visits to the dentist.
The procedure of immediate loading involves careful planning of the implant positioning before the surgery. During the surgery, the implant is placed, and measurements of the implant position are taken and sent to the lab. Temporary fix teeth are then placed on the same day or the next day, providing you with immediate results. In some cases, the crown or bridge may even be prepared before the surgery, further expediting the process. This is also a far cry from the techniques recommended by Per-Ingvar Branemark in the 1970s in which patients had to wait for 6 months before teeth could be attached to the implants.
Immediate loading implants offer several benefits. Not only do they provide you with immediate fixed teeth, but they also simplify the surgical workflow with a one-stage technique. Additionally, the reduced number of visits to the dentist means less time and inconvenience for you.
It is important to note that the longevity and success of immediate loading implants depend on various factors, such as risk factors like, stability of the implant when it was placed, chewing hard/sticky foods smoking or medication. Regular check-ups and maintenance are crucial for long-term success.
Smile in a Day Dental Implant for Single Teeth
The Smile in a Day procedure also offers the option of single tooth restoration in just one day. If you have a missing tooth that needs to be replaced, Smile in a Day can provide you with a dental restoration solution that’s efficient and convenient.
This innovative procedure allows for the immediate placement and immediate loading with a temporary tooth on the same day, eliminating the need for multiple visits and long waiting periods. This is possible in most situations as long as the following is met:
- Adequate bone volume in the area.
- Stability of the dental implant (measured by the implant stability quotient)
The temporary tooth is usually replaced with a definitive one after three months, allowing for proper healing and integration of the implant. In some cases, a temporary, removable denture may be required before the final restoration is placed. However, the overall process can still be completed in just one day.

immediate loading of dental implant, under certain conditions, is a successful treatment process and is effective in reducing treatment time. Thus, immediate loading represents a valid alternative to the traditional delayed loading rehabilitation.
All-on-4 | Smile in a Day | Full Arch Teeth
The All-on-4 Smile in a Day procedure allows you to regain a beautiful full mouth of teeth in just one day. With the All-on-4 technique, four dental implants per jaw are strategically placed in your jawbone to support a full arch of artificial teeth. The immediate loading capability of this procedure means that you can walk out of the dental practice with a brand new set of teeth on the same day.
The All-on-4 same day smile procedure is an excellent treatment option for individuals with extreme gum disease or bone loss. Even if you have been told in the past that you aren’t a candidate for traditional dental implants, the All-on-4 approach may still be an option for you because it does not require traditional bone grafting in most situations. It eliminates the need for bone grafts and can be completed in a single day, even in cases of severe bone loss.
