Dental implants are a practical way to replace missing teeth and restore the health and appearance of your smile. While some dental clinics require two or more appointments to place implants, some wonder if they can get the procedure in one day. The great news is Dr. Darren K. Dickson does make this possible for eligible candidates.

Dental implants are a modern solution far better than removable dentures and bridges. If you live in Plano, Richardson, Frisco, Dallas, McKinney, or Farmers Branch, TX, and are interested in a smart tooth replacement option, ask about our same-day dental implants. My Dentist in Plano is proud to offer the latest dental tools and technologies for your convenience.

Why dental implants?

There are many reasons why our dental implants are superior to other options. For example, removable dentures can slip, fall out, and cause discomfort. You're not limited to what you eat or drink with implants because we anchor them into the jaw.

Dental implants are also more attractive than other solutions. They blend in with the surrounding teeth and look natural, so friends and family will never know you had dental work done. Other tooth replacement solutions are bulky, unattractive, and can make you feel self-conscious.

Dental implants even help prevent tooth loss and improve your overall oral health. They are a stand-alone solution, unlike bridges, which rely on the surrounding teeth for support. Implants won't place any extra stress on your teeth or jawbone.

Can I get dental implants in one day?

Placing dental implants can be complicated, which is why it typically requires two or more appointments to complete. However, using only the most advanced dental tools and equipment, Dr. Dickson can provide same-day dental implants for patients with missing teeth in Plano, Richardson, Frisco, Dallas, McKinney, or Farmers Branch, TX.

Of course, patients must be cleared for implants before scheduling a procedure. During your initial consultation, Dr. Dickson will examine your mouth and recommend the best course of action for tooth replacement. Our team may take x-rays to ensure your mouth is healthy enough for implants and determine if problems with your jawbone could complicate the procedure.
