What Type of Teeth in a Day Procedures are Available?
Teeth in a day is a unique way of restoring lost teeth with dental implants. This procedure removes the long waiting period of regular implants – tooth removal, implant placement, denture fabrication, then prosthetic placement. Instead, teeth in a day streamlines the process. The dentist can immediately place the removable denture or restoration on the implant. In most situations, the patient will need to wait until the teeth have fully healed before the denture is connected permanently.
Getting Teeth in a day
When patients visit the dentist, they will undergo assessment and consultation. Teeth in a day is not exactly a dental procedure. It is a technique that makes it possible to perform different dental implant placements in a single day. The various procedures include single tooth implants, multiple tooth implants, all-on-four, and overdentures supported by implants. The dentist will take the time to explain the process involved, answer every question, and talk about the patient’s concerns and fears.
All-on-4 is a minimally invasive technique of restoring lost teeth with only four implants, which will support the prosthetic attached to the full dental arch on the lower or upper jaw. With All-on-4, patients can get a complete set of teeth without necessarily undergoing several surgeries and replacements to insert a complete set of implants into the jawbone. The exciting fact about all-on-4 is that the entire procedure can be completed in a single dental appointment under local anesthesia.
Patients who have lost all the teeth on a dental arch can once again have the full functionality of their teeth without going through multiple dental procedures. The techniques also provide patients with teeth that are identical to their original set of teeth.
Single tooth implants
With this technique, dentists can extract a failed tooth, place the implant post, and fit a prosthetic on the implant during the same appointment. This means that the patient gets a new tooth root the same day the tooth was extracted. The prosthetic (crown or bridge) may be loaded on the same day, depending on the patient and their bone’s conditions. The patient may be given a provisional restoration until the healing is complete. This ensures that the patient never has to go a day without their tooth.
Multiple tooth implants
This is usually applied when more than one tooth is missing. The procedure is the same as replacing a single tooth or an entire dental arch. The dentist will place the implants and place the fabricated dental bridge or partial denture on the implant immediately.
Can everyone get teeth in a day?
Dentists will typically try to use this technique upon patients’ request. However, sometimes, it is not possible to use this procedure. The bone structure must be healthy and full enough to support the implant, or early failure may occur if a tooth or teeth is placed immediately on the implant. After the procedure, patients must ensure they follow the dentist’s instruction on aftercare and diet.
Teeth in a day techniques enable minimally invasive surgery to provide the most effective results within a short period with minimal discomfort. Patients who are missing their teeth and need a fast and effective restoration should contact their dentist about getting teeth in a day.
