Do you need dental implants but dread the thought of repeat visits to the dentist in what can often be a long and drawn out process? If this sounds like you, then the latest and most innovative dental treatment – Teeth in a Day could be the right treatment for you.
At Woodborough House we offer the Teeth in a Day procedure to patients as a way to cut back on their treatment time as well as to ensure they enjoy a more precise implant placement. We are constantly looking for treatments which improve patient care and procedure duration and Teeth in a Day is the ideal choice for patients who would otherwise require numerous visits to get the same results.
The Teeth in a Day Procedure
An initial scan of the jaw is taken, which is a detailed CAT scan. In this scan, a three-dimensional model of the mouth is recreated in order to manufacture the implants which will be ready when you come in for the next appointment for a fitting.
The technology used in creating the Teeth in a Day implants was developed by Nobel Biocare but it can actually help the dentist to fit the implants, not just for manufacturing them. As the teeth in a day surgery is much less invasive than traditional dental implants, the patient can expect to have less scarring and therefore less pain and swelling as a result. This is because an arthroscope is used – a probe rather like an endoscope – which is inserted into a small incision in the jaw tissue. The very precise nature of this means that as a result, the patient can often feel fine the next day and carry out their activities as usual.
Benefits for Patients
The very precise nature of this means that as a result, the patient can often feel fine the next day and carry out their activities as usual.
This has great benefits for patients who can find they don’t have to go through repeat bone grafts to have their implants made.
Although it can be more expensive than regular dental implants, many patients find that it is worth it because they gain their time back – so they don’t have to take time off work for example to come and have their dental implants fitted. Additionally, patients can expect to find that the procedure is much safer, less painful and produces consistently better results.
