If you are missing one or more teeth and are considering dental implants, you may be frustrated with the thought of having to wait a number of months to achieve your new smile. Fortunately, there is a solution that offers all of the benefits of dental implants with no need to delay restoring the function and appearance of your teeth. This procedure is known as teeth in a day.
What are teeth in a day?
As the name of the process suggests, teeth in a day is a dental procedure in which patients can get implants placed and fully functioning teeth attached in the space of just one day. This dramatically reduces the conventional length of time usually required to receive dental implants, which is normally between three and six months.
With conventional dental implants, it is necessary to leave a period of time so that the jaw bone completely heals around the implant, securing it permanently in place and making it strong enough to be loaded with the replacement teeth. Temporary restorations are provided to stop you having any gaps, but the final permanent teeth are not fitted until the implant is completely healed.
However, the technology used in dental implants and the design itself has continued to evolve and it is now possible to place the implant post and load it with your chosen restoration, be it a crown, a bridge or denture, the very same day. The result is a functional set of teeth that both look and feel completely natural, and that you can start using without compromise immediately.
How are teeth in a day possible?
The magic that makes teeth in a day possible lies in the positioning of the dental implant posts. In conventional implant procedures, these are placed at a 90-degree angle to the gum tissue. However, by placing the necessary implant posts in strategic positions on the arch where the bone is of the highest volume and density, and by positioning the angle of the implant differently, it is possible for them to be strong enough to support a restoration immediately.
The entire process is carefully planned from start to finish, using the latest technology to capture 3D, 360-degree digital images of your teeth, jaws and surrounding anatomy. These will be used to plan the placement of your implant posts and, along with impressions, to accurately create the design for your restoration. This ensures the greatest possible level of precision in all aspects of your procedure.
