What are Teeth-In-A-Day?
Teeth-In-A-Day (also known as All-on-4 Dental Implants) allow patients who are having teeth extracted to have their implants placed the same day and restorations done immediately. This has multiple benefits: shortening treatment time, preventing bone loss around the extraction sockets, and eliminating time spent without teeth.
Candidates for Teeth-in-a-Day
Patients who are in immediate danger of losing their teeth, or who have been affected by sudden tooth loss, are good candidates for the Teeth-in-a-Day procedure. This option is suitable for patients who are seeking:
- Tooth extraction and dental implantation on the same day
- Single or multiple tooth restoration
- Same-day implant supported bridgework or dentures.
The Immediate Load Implant Process
Unlike traditional dental implants, which must be placed and then left undisturbed for about six months while osseointegration to take place, Teeth-In-A-Day allows patients to have implants placed and restorations begun the same day, even immediately after a tooth extraction.
Teeth-in-a-Day (All on 4) Benefits
Patients who receive Teeth-In-A-Day find that they have:
- Immediate new teeth with no waiting
- Fast healing and a high success rate
- No need for temporary dentures
This dental implant procedure is especially attractive to patients undergoing multiple tooth extractions or who have just lost a number of teeth due to trauma or an accident.
TEETH COMPLETED IN A DAY AND LAST A LIFETIME
What is the Teeth in a Day system?
The Teeth in a Day system offers just what it sounds like — permanent dental implants that can be used
on the same day as placement.
Traditional dental implants will have you waiting for months to start using your new artificial tooth. But with Teeth in a Day, you can have new, immediately functioning teeth in just one sitting.
Teeth in a Day is the revolutionary dental implant surgery method that is changing the face of traditional tooth replacement technology.
Dental implants are the most effective and permanent way to replace teeth, and the only way to do so without losing jawbone volume. Where other tooth replacement solutions like dentures or bridges rely on other teeth or the gum tissue for support, the dental implant is able to stand on its own in the jaw.
Dental implants not only prevent bone loss but also fuse with the living bone to become a permanent part of the dentition. Much like a natural tooth, implants can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.
Implants are composed of three parts:
The post, the abutment and the crown. The post is essentially a titanium screw that is inserted into the jawbone. Titanium is a unique metal, as it is able to fully fuse with bone. Atop the post lies the abutment, the connector between post and crown. Finally, a durable, natural-looking crown is securely placed on the abutment to create a fully functioning new artificial tooth, from top to root.
The Teeth in a Day system, while comparable to the popular traditional dental implants, offers so much
more. Traditional dental implant surgery requires a lengthy healing period between surgical placement
of the titanium post and attaching the crown. This period can last up to six months without a functioning
tooth while the jaw and tissue heal around the implant.
Teeth in a Day is unique in that temporary, fully functioning teeth are placed on the same day as the implant is surgically inserted. These temporary teeth can be used almost immediately after the appointment. While your custom, permanent teeth are being created in the cosmetic dentistry laboratory, these temporary teeth will allow no interruption in the use of your bite and the appearance of your smile.
Why should I get Teeth in a Day?
Missing teeth do more damage than you might think. When a patient has one or more teeth missing due
to accidents, unchecked tooth decay or advanced age, the damage extends beyond just the missing
tooth. In fact, even a single missing tooth can produce a domino effect on the rest of your teeth. This is
why Teeth in a Day is ideal for patients who are missing teeth. Getting the tooth replaced immediately is
your best chance at keeping the rest of your teeth and maintaining excellent oral health.
The damage caused by a missing tooth gets worse the longer you wait to replace it. Once the tooth has fallen out, changes start to happen almost immediately in the mouth. Teeth on either side of the space begin to move toward it, causing malocclusion (a misaligned bite) and leading to other loose teeth. With no bite force being applied to the opposing tooth, it will loosen due to inactivity and eventually fall out.
Additionally, bacteria can enter the gums more easily with an untreated missing tooth, and periodontitis is only the start of the issues caused by a bacterial attack at this vulnerable site.
The jawbone will begin to deteriorate shortly after a tooth is lost. Preserving jawbone density is a vital piece of the puzzle in successfully placing a dental implant. Keeping oral health in great shape means having a full set of teeth, first and foremost.
When to consider the Teeth in a Day system
Those who are missing teeth might feel self-conscious about their smile. Feeling the need to cover your
mouth when talking or laughing is a common complaint among patients who have lost teeth. Losing a
tooth does not only deal a blow to your confidence.
Even with a single tooth out of its place, eating, drinking and talking become difficult. These activities might even be painful, as the sensitive inner tissue of the gums is exposed. Social situations can feel like a chore when all you are worried about is the way your teeth look and feel.
Am I a good candidate for Teeth in a Day implants?
Most people who are missing teeth are eligible to get Teeth in a Day. Being a good candidate for Teeth in a Day depends on a variety of factors, including:
- Adequate bone density in the implant area
- Otherwise healthy oral tissue and good oral health
- One or more missing or damaged teeth
- No excessive teeth grinding
- No other medical conditions that might affect healing of the bone
Teeth in a Day is a great system for those who want to see in immediate cosmetic and functional
improvement in their smile. These implants are a good alternative to dentures or bridgework, as these
appliances tend to deteriorate mouth condition while Teeth in a Day supports oral health.
Without proper bone density, implantation becomes risky. However, there are options for regrowing bone as well. Performing a bone graft may help to support a future implant. Any gum disease or other oral health issues will need to be treated prior to your Teeth in a Day appointment.
The bottom line
Teeth in a Day will make eating, laughing, smiling and talking easier. The Teeth in a Day system not only
helps you achieve your dream smile in one appointment but boosts your confidence in giving you the
permanent teeth you have always wanted. Lead the life you want to lead without having to worry about
unsightly missing teeth.
