The teeth in a day procedure is an implant procedure designed to provide patients with a complete restoration in just one day. While full-mouth rehab can take months or even up to a year, this technique allows us to stabilize bone levels and provide same day implants so you can have a new smile in just one day.
Patients who are considered a fit for this procedure are those who are missing one or more teeth. Additionally, patients who wear dentures or may need dentures are also likely a good fit. Because this procedure differs from that of traditional dental implants, teeth in a day is often a good choice for those with bone loss, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
Smile in a day provides many advantages. It provides patients with immediate results and instant gratification.
One of the reasons smile in a day can be performed is because it doesn’t require extensive bone grafting like traditional implants.
This procedure is easy to maintain and keep clean and doesn’t require removal of the prosthetics. It also requires less healing time than conventional implants and allows patients to enjoy an improved quality of life by being able to eat and speak better.
Smile for a day gives patients a completely functional mouth without the time needed for traditional implants. It, however, is not a denture. Smile a day doesn’t require adhesives, are more comfortable than dentures because they don’t press on the gums, prevent bone loss, and allow patients to experience the sensation of cold and hot foods.
The first step to getting a smile in a day is to come in a for a consultation. During the consultation we’ll examine your mouth, take x-rays, and might even perform a 3D CT scan, which allows us to map out the blood vessels and tissue, along with the bone in the face.
Once you’re approved for surgery we will set a time and date. During the procedure you’ll be set up with fixed, non-removable temporary teeth that function just like your real teeth. These will be in your mouth for anywhere from three to six months while your implants heal, at which point you will be fitted with your permanent, long-term teeth.
