What Are Teeth-in-a-Day?
Teeth-in-a-Day is a unique tooth replacement option involving implant-supported dentures. Traditionally, the process for implant-supported dentures can take months to complete. Teeth-in-a-Day streamlines this process so that you can replace your missing teeth and regain a beautiful smile in just one appointment with our dentist.
The Teeth-in-a-Day Procedure
The Teeth-in-a-Day procedure involves the strategic placement of dental implants to support a fixed, customized dental prosthesis, often consisting of a full set of teeth. Our skilled dentist will assess your oral health and determine the optimal placement of your dental implants. This involves taking a high-resolution scan of your mouth and jawbone structure. The denture can then be crafted prior to implant placement. Typically, four implants are strategically positioned in areas of the jawbone with the greatest bone density and strength.
Once the implants are securely placed, a temporary prosthetic is attached, allowing the patient to leave the dental office with a functional set of teeth on the same day. Over time, the implants will fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, ensuring long-term stability and durability. Most cases require two restorations – the initial denture which will be attached following implant placement, and the final denture, which will be placed after your mouth has healed.
Benefits of Teeth-in-a-Day
- Rapid Results: Perhaps the most significant advantage of Teeth-in-a-Day is the immediate transformation it offers. Patients walk into the dental office with compromised teeth and leave with a beautiful, functional smile in a matter of hours, significantly improving their quality of life in a short span.
- Enhanced Oral Function: Teeth-in-a-Day allows patients to regain the ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence. The fixed prosthetic is custom-designed to fit comfortably and function just like natural teeth, ensuring proper chewing and speech capabilities.
- Minimal Discomfort and Recovery: Compared to traditional dental implant procedures, Teeth-in-a-Day often involves less discomfort and a shorter recovery period. Patients experience minimal pain and can resume their normal activities faster, thanks to the reduced invasiveness of the treatment.
- Improved Aesthetics and Confidence: The transformation provided by Teeth-in-a-Day not only restores oral function but also enhances the appearance of the patient’s smile. This boost in self-confidence can have a profound impact on overall well-being and social interactions.
- Cost-Effective: Teeth-in-a-Day is often a more cost-effective option than undergoing multiple surgeries and extensive dental work over an extended period. It minimizes the need for additional procedures, reducing overall treatment costs.
