Yefim Aranbaev, DDS – Dental Implants
Missing a tooth? Join the club. According to the American College of Prosthodontists, almost 180 million Americans are missing one or more teeth, and about 40 million Americans are missing all of their teeth (link).
Of course, these stats are cold comfort to anyone suffering the impacts of a missing tooth. Some people experience no side effects of a missing tooth, especially if the tooth is in the back of the mouth. However, as Healthline notes, “your teeth are designed to work together,” so a missing tooth can lead to a host of issues. A missing tooth can impact your speech, your enjoyment of food, and even the shape of your face (which can change your bite).

Dental Implants – A History of Success
Dentists have performed implant surgery since the 1950s when a Swedish researcher discovered that titanium could fuse to bone (a process called osseointegration). Today, titanium is still the preferred material for implant dentistry.
The endurance of titanium since the early days of implant surgery speaks to the success of the procedure itself, which permanently fuses a new, artificial tooth to your jawbone. This fusion process may sound uncomfortable, but since they are made to fit the shape of your mouth, dental implants are among the most lasting and comfortable of all dental interventions.
With a lasting history of success, you can rest assured that your dental implant procedure will be durable and comfortable for years to come.
Dental Implants Procedure: Traditional vs. Same-Day Implants
The unique nature of your mouth means your dental implant procedure will be unique to you. Your surgery will be informed by two factors: the condition of your jaw and the style of implant. The process may occur over a series of weeks or months. Or some patients may opt for same-day implants.
In either case, we may need to prepare your jawbone and remove any part of your damaged tooth. Same-day implant patients will complete the rest of the steps in a single visit.
After this procedure, traditional implant surgery suggests a period of healing before inserting the titanium post into your jawbone. After your post is inserted, traditional implant surgery also suggests another recovery period to allow the implant to fuse to your mouth.
Healing times vary, but your implant dentist will complete the process with a simple implant procedure after healing is complete.
In both traditional and same-day procedures, patients are numbed, and most patients experience only mild discomfort—comparable to tooth extraction.
