Restore a Full Set of Teeth in Just One Visit
Teeth-in-a-Day, also known as immediate load dental implants, is a major new advancement in implant dentistry. The standard dental implant process requires a number of visits to our office that take place over the course of about three to six months. But immediate load implants provide you with attractive permanent teeth in just one day.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are natural-looking prosthetic teeth that are surgically attached to your jaw for a firm and stable hold. They’re a highly reliable and effective way to restore your smile. The key to their success is osseointegration, the process that allows implants to fuse together with the patient’s jawbone.
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for this procedure. In order to qualify for immediate load implants, you must have healthy gums and plenty of jawbone mass. If you have significant issues with your oral health, they may not be the best option for you.
Benefits of Teeth-in-a-Day
The dental implant process typically requires three to six months to complete. Much of that time involves the patient waiting for their body to become fully accustomed to the surgically placed implant fixture. During this time, the patient will wear a temporary restoration called a flipper to fill the gap and protect the surgical site from irritation.
But immediate load implants require no waiting period and they allow you to replace any number of missing teeth immediately. Teeth-in-a-Day lets you enjoy all the benefits of a healthy and beautiful smile from the moment you leave our office. Best of all, the procedure typically only takes about an hour.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is the best candidate for Teeth-in-a-Day?
If you’re missing a full arch of teeth, Teeth-in-a-Day may be the solution for you. You can enjoy all the benefits of Teeth-in-a-Day almost immediately, instead of waiting months to show off your new smile. The procedure is less invasive, so we can affix the dentures to your implants the same day as your operation. That means less recovery time and more time spent enjoying your new smile.
How long do Teeth-in-a-Day last?
Not only do dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, with proper care they can last a lifetime. Although the implants can last forever, the restoration such as the bridge, crown, and dentures may need to be replaced with normal wear.
To increase the longevity of your complete smile, Dr. Shafer recommends maintaining good oral hygiene and scheduling routine dental checkups every six months. That way, you can get the most out of your smile and stay on track with your dental health.
