What is Teeth In A Day?
Teeth In A Day is a unique tooth-replacement system that uses four to six dental implants to replace one arch of missing teeth. Angled connectors have been developed that allow for a wider spread of the implants, resulting in a more solid base. We highly recommend this procedure for patients who currently have dentures or need a full lower and/or upper arch replacement.
Teeth In A Day is a procedure that removes bad teeth, levels the bone, places the implants and fastens your replacement teeth to the implants. Before we can begin your Teeth In A Day procedure, we first must make sure you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Most patients are good candidates for Teeth In A Day, even if they don’t have a lot of jaw bone. This is because it uses special dental implants and angles to secure the implants without needing a bone graft.
During a detailed consultation, we will evaluate your oral health and ask about your treatment goals. We will also take x-rays, impressions, photos, and iCAT 3D images of your jaw bone. If we determine you’re a good candidate and you want to proceed, we will schedule your surgery.
During surgery, we will extract any remaining teeth and then place the dental implants. Some patients may only require four implants while others might require six, it really depends on the patient and their jaw bone quality. After placing the implants, we will place your first bridge of teeth. This looks completely natural, but doesn’t deliver the same strength as your permanent restorations.
During your follow-up appointments, we will check your implants and how well your mouth is healing. Once we determine they have healed enough, we will place your permanent restorations. This usually occurs within six months of your procedure. Any corrections in shape, position, or color will be done with this. It will have a rigid frame of titanium or ceramic to prevent breakage. The final restorations are fixed in place; and look and function just like natural teeth! You will love your new smile instantly.
