Decatur AL Teeth in a Day
The Teeth in a Day procedure combines advanced implant dentistry with permanent dentures to give patients a healthy and natural-looking smile, eliminating the many problems associated with removable dentures.
This procedure is ideal for patients who have lost all the teeth on the upper or lower arch, particularly if you’re in search of quick results without sacrificing quality, fit, and function. The best part is that, at Drake and Wallace Dentistry, we perform this procedure without time-consuming and expensive bone grafting.
Benefits of Teeth in a Day
This approach to teeth replacement if popular because it’s a quick and effective way to restore your smile — and because it doesn’t require bone grafts. But these implant-retained permanent dentures provide a variety of other benefits as well.
Compared to removable dentures, Teeth in a Day eliminates the discomfort and annoyance of slipping, sliding, clicking teeth. The implants also help prevent further bone loss in the jaw , which ultimately leads to facial collapse, that sunken look commonly associated with wearing removable dentures.
Compared to other types of implant-supported dentures, Teeth in a Day will let you leave our surgeon’s office with your permanent dentures already in place, sparing you the time and expense of additional procedures.
Understanding the Teeth in a Day Procedure
To complete the Teeth in a Day procedure, our oral surgeon will determine the ideal placement and number of dental implants necessary to support your permanent dentures — typically four to six placed near the front of the mouth where the level of bone density is greatest. With anesthesia to facilitate your comfort, the surgeon places the implants in a way that provides maximum support and stability for the replacement teeth.
Although some patients must undergo bone grafting to obtain implant-affixed dentures, Teeth in a Day patients can have their replacement teeth affixed immediately after implant placement. The conservative approach is made possible by the advanced implant placement techniques used, which take full advantage of the jawbone’s strongest points.
