Yes they can although it is only a temporary solution! Using 3D CT scanning a dentist can now make a temporary crown which can be fitted on the same day as the dental implant post.
The new tooth (or teeth) looks and functions like the real thing. The crown will be replaced several months later when the implant fuses with the jawbone. Same-day implants work extremely well and are:
– Securely fixed
– Fully functional
Fitting dental implants “can take months” but “same-day” implants are an excellent temporary solution and more information can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/can-dental-implants-be-done-in-one-day/.
