Teeth in a Day
Patients who are in need of a full upper and/or lower teeth restoration have the option to have a brand new smile in just one day. Teeth in a Day are created with dental implants, which securely hold the new teeth in place. It is an ideal alternative to dentures and gives patients a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
The treatment process for Teeth in a Day involves an initial consultation and exam to see if you qualify for the procedure. A number of records are taken using x-rays, CT scans, photos and impressions to determine the treatment plan. The actual procedure involves placing the appropriate number of implants into the gums, which is done under anesthesia. Then, a temporary prosthesis is placed within 24 hours of the procedure. The temporary prosthesis will stay in place for about 6 months to allow for the gums to heal and the bone to fuse around the implants. Then, a stronger, permanent set of teeth are placed and adjusted for a secure fit.
