‘Teeth in a Day’ is the latest innovation in dental implants which reduces the need for numerous dental visits and surgical procedures usually involving bone grafts. Traditionally, receiving dental implants is a long process, but with the Teeth in a Day procedure the need for extra surgical procedures is reduced, therefore saving on time.
This procedure is an alternative to using conventional dental implants. It’s ideal if you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the dentist’s chair. Here at Woodborough House Dental Practice, Dr Nick Fahey can carry out this treatment using Straumann dental implants.
What does the ‘Teeth in a Day’ procedure involve?
Initially, a CT scan and digital models will be taken of your mouth. Planning is made and implants are placed with a long term provisional restoration. It is flapless surgery, i.e. involving no stitches at the end of the treatment. You will also only have to visit the dentist three times. Once for the initial scan, a second time to have the entire set of implants fitted and the third time for a final check-up.
Is it right for me?
The ‘Teeth in a Day’ procedure may be right for you, but it is always determined on an individual basis. Every candidate is different and as this is a very specific treatment option, you will need to be reviewed by an expert first to be assessed for your suitability.
There are many benefits of using ‘Teeth in a Day’. Some of these include spending less time in the dental practice, which therefore makes it both easier for the dentist and the patient. There is also less pain, less swelling and immediate tooth replacement, meaning that it is the ideal solution for people who want a relatively painless and quick alternative to having new teeth fitted.
Patients can prepare for this procedure by quitting smoking and having immaculate oral hygiene techniques prior to treatment.
While the costs are slightly higher for this procedure than traditional dental implants, the many benefits it can offer patients far outweigh this small premium.
The procedure is very safe as it is the most carefully planned of any dental implant surgical procedure and patients can expect to receive phenomenal results from the latest innovation in dental implants. It does exactly what it says, i.e. ‘teeth in a day’.
