What is Teeth-in-A-Day?
Teeth-in-a-Day is a unique dental implant supported denture process. Rather than removing teeth, then placing dental implants, then designing the denture, then attaching the denture over the course of months, Teeth-in-a-Day streamlines the process. Instead of placing implants and asking patients to spend months without teeth, we will immediately place a traditional removable denture or an immediate load implant-retained removable denture. In most cases, you’ll need to have your denture adjusted or replaced once your smile has fully healed before we permanently attach the denture.
Who Should You Consider Teeth-in-A-Day?
Any patient who is missing all of their teeth or who will soon have teeth extracted, may want to consider Teeth-in-a-Day. Healthy patients who have chosen to proceed with these procedures immediately following tooth loss will have the highest chances for success.
How Does Teeth-In-A-Day Work?
While the traditional implant process can take upwards of four to nine months to fully complete, Teeth-In-A-Day can give you everything you need by the time you’re ready to leave our practice. Our team will begin by capturing a high-resolution CT scan of your current jawbone structure, which will instruct us on where to place the implants. Then, a non-removable appliance is crafted to attach over the implants immediately after they’re placed, providing reliable function. Typically, you will actually receive two restorations. Once we receive your initial, temporary restoration we’ll begin the Teeth-in-a-Day process. You’ll visit our office, and we’ll remove any damaged teeth. Then, we place dental implant posts, and position the temporary restoration. Once your implants have time to heal, you’ll visit our office so we can place abutments, the attachment pieces, and capture impressions that will be used to craft your final restoration or adjust your temporary denture to be attached to the implant posts.
What are the Drawbacks & Benefits of Teeth-in-a-Day?
There are some drawbacks to the Teeth-in-a-Day method. It can be more expensive in the long run since you will usually need two prosthetics. Additionally, patients have a slightly greater risk for dental implant failure than those who receive traditional dental implant supported dentures. Benefits of the Teeth-in-a-Day procedure include:
- No time spent without teeth, which retains facial shape, chewing function, and clear speech
- The temporary prosthetic provides additional protection as your dental implant fuses with the jawbone
- Patients can feel confidence sharing their smile throughout the treatment process
