Full Arch Replacements in One Day
In the past, a patient missing all of his or her teeth was fitted with a non-fixed denture. While dentures are still an important part of care in dentistry, they also are uncomfortable, slip and cause embarrassment, and contribute to jawbone deterioration. Today, we have a better way to treat missing teeth: implant-supported dentures. An implant-supported denture is a fixed denture that is attached to just four to six implants, which are embedded in the jaw. With full-arch replacements like Teeth-In-An-Hour™, patients can eat whatever they want and enjoy life without restriction.
Same Day Dental Implants
Same day dental implants have revolutionized the way we treat missing teeth. They provide patients with comfort, convenience, self-confidence, and enhance their ability to enjoy life in a way that we never could before.
Benefits of Teeth-In-An-Hour™
- Cost-Efficient: More affordable than an entire row of implants, and cost-efficient over time when compared to replacement and maintenance of dentures.
- Convenient: Temporary replacement teeth are placed the same day of surgery.
- Graft-Less Option: Often, we can angle two of the implants at the back of the jaw to avoid bone grafting.
- Stimulates the Jaw: Provides jaw stimulation to maintain bone mass.
The first step in the same day teeth process is a consultation and exam. Next, advanced 3-D imaging is performed to determine the specific needs of your case. Some patients will need just 4 implants, while others may need up to 6. For your surgery, you will choose the level of anesthesia that suits your needs so that you will be totally comfortable throughout. On the day of surgery, the implants are placed and a temporary fixed denture is attached for use the same day, after which a more permanent denture is created, replacing the temporary. The Teeth-In-An-Hour™ procedure is very comfortable and is performed in our facility. Some patients experience some soreness as anesthesia wears off and for a few days after, but usually any discomfort is controlled adequately with over-the-counter medications.
