Same Day Dental Implants are Finally Here!
The All-on-4 treatment concept, performed directly by Drs Cole and Sharp right here at Southern Arizona Periodontics, was developed to provide edentulous patients with an efficient and effective restoration using only four implants to support an immediately loaded full-arch prosthesis.
The All-on-4 treatment concept offers clinicians and their patients various clear benefits:
We Can Help!
If you have experienced tooth loss due to trauma to the tooth, gum disease, or any other reason, you may be looking at your alternatives to replace the lost teeth. While you have several options available, getting a dental implant is probably the closest thing to having your real teeth that you will find. Here at Southern Arizona Periodontics, we offer same-day implants for your convenience and comfort.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth that is anchored in your mouth by means of a metal rod that has been implanted in your jawbone. To create an implant, we will first thoroughly numb the area to ensure that you experience no discomfort during the procedure.
We will then drill down into the gum tissue and insert metal rods. These rods will act as sockets for the dental implants. We then attach dental constructs crafted to look, feel, and perform exactly like your real teeth to the metal rods.
Dental implants can be used to support other reconstructive dental implements such as a bridge. By placing four implants at various spots along your gumline, we can anchor an entire row of teeth in your mouth. In a short amount of time you will have a complete smile that performs exactly the way your teeth would.
You can have a dental implant crafted to mimic the teeth you used to have, or you can opt for a new smile altogether. Further, you can have a dental implant that is removable so you can take it out for cleaning, or you can opt to have implants that are permanently put in. These permanent implants are cared for exactly the way real teeth are: regular brushing, flossing, and dentist visits for cleaning.
What Else Should I Know?
Although same day dental implants are incredibly convenient and flexible in their use, they are not for everyone. Just as with any medical or dental procedure, every patient is unique and has unique considerations that must be addressed before a course of treatment is decided upon.

We are here to answer any questions you might have, and we want to take the time to get to know you and get to know your unique situation.

We will take the time to sit down with you and explain the process. Then, we will answer any questions you may have to be sure that you are comfortable. Finally, we will help you to make the best educated decision regarding your dental needs and the treatment that is best for you.
