Teeth-in-a-Day is an advanced dental implant treatment that allows you to fully restore your smile in a single appointment. Our dentist performs the surgical aspect of your procedure and provides you with a high-quality temporary denture in one day. Practicing biological dentistry, and coupled with extensive training in implantology, allows our dentist to provide exceptional care that you can trust. Our practice focuses on biological dentistry and emphasizes the importance of being conscious of the effects dental treatments can have on your overall health. As such, we only perform invasive procedures when we believe they offer significant advantages to our patients, and dental implants offer substantial benefits to your oral, and overall health.
Extensive tooth loss affects the appearance of your smile and so much more. Eating a balanced diet can become extremely difficult if you are missing some, or all of your teeth. You might also experience serious dental health issues if the tooth is not replaced within a certain period of time. That is where our dental clinic can help. Thanks to Teeth-in-a-Day, patients who are missing their teeth can have a functional smile in just a single visit.
While the procedure and temporary prosthesis are provided on the same day, the planning stage prior to surgery is an important step in the process as we need to complete a comprehensive evaluation of your bite. When planning your surgery, we use the latest dental technology to create a surgical guide. This is used to strategically place your implants into your jawbone to create a stable foundation in the most suitable position. Once we have thoroughly planned your treatment, we will schedule your surgery. During the procedure, we ensure your implant posts are placed in the strongest portions of your jaw to support your restoration, and we place your temporary denture on the same day. Over the months following your treatment, we need to monitor your recovery to determine when your final restoration can be attached to your dental implants. During this visit, we will ensure that your prosthetic fits comfortably and securely for long-lasting, realistic function. Some of the primary questions to consider when looking into Teeth-in-a-Day, include:
How Teeth-in-a-Day Works | Teeth-in-a-Day allows patients who are missing all of their teeth to get a functioning dental appliance placed within one day. The process involves the use of strategically placed dental implants along the dental arch, and a denture to fully restore the function of their smile. Rather than wait several months to experience the benefits of standard dental implants, a temporary denture is snapped into place at the end of the procedure. You will be able to smile, bite, and chew again in no time.
The Extent of a Patient's Tooth Loss | Candidates for Teeth-in-a-Day are those who have experienced extensive tooth loss along the dental arch, and still have the supporting bone structure. On the other hand, patients who are missing a single tooth, or a few teeth, are more ideal candidates for implant-supported bridges, traditional dental bridges, and other less extensive procedures for a smile restoration.
Bone Density Along the Dental Arch | Dental implants must be anchored into a sturdy jawbone in order to be effective. If a patient is lacking jawbone density, that puts the success of the procedure, and that patient’s dental health, at risk. Only those patients who have not experienced serious bone loss are ideal candidates for Teeth-in-a-Day treatment.
Overall Dental Health and Wellness | Even if you have sufficient bone density in place, there may be other dental health issues that prevent a patient from receiving Teeth-in-a-Day. A patient with gum disease, for example, runs a risk of implant failure due to infection. It is important that other dental health issues be addressed before initiating Teeth-in-a-Day treatment.
Factors Related to the Cost of Treatment | Teeth-in-a-Day is more affordable than traditional implant dentistry but also more expensive than removable dentures. This added cost could make Teeth-in-a-Day a financial burden for a number of households. That said, the convenience and effectiveness of Teeth-in-a-Day may justify the expense. Financing options are also available if the upfront cost of care is too steep. These factors are important to weigh when it comes to any sort of dental procedure.
Weighing Your Options and Making a Smart Choice | It is important to us that patients are able to weigh their options for care and make a confident choice, especially when it comes to treating extensive tooth loss. During your visit to our dental practice, we make sure that all your questions are answered, all of your concerns are addressed, and all potential treatment options are discussed.
