Our skilled doctors proudly provide Teeth in a Day implants at their Phoenix, AZ, area offices. With this innovative treatment, they can perform implant surgery and place your denture during the same appointment. In this way, you can enjoy a beautifully lifelike restoration that will immediately renew your dental function. Teeth in a Day can also enhance your oral health, preventing jawbone recession and a changed appearance. In our practice, your surgeon will carefully plan your surgery. Thus, he can minimize the impact to your jaw and shorten your recovery time.
Process for Teeth in a Day
If you choose Teeth in a Day, your doctor will use four or more implant posts to support a full-arch denture. Before your surgery, he will take x-rays and advanced digital scans to examine your jawbone. By finding the healthiest areas of your jaw, he can ensure a strong, lasting base for your prosthetic.
“The smaller size and unique placement of Teeth in a Day implants can often eliminate the need for bone grafting.”
Prior to your surgery, one of our on-site anesthesiologists will provide sedation. By working with specialists, we can ensure your complete safety and comfort during surgery. After you are fully relaxed, your doctor will place four or more implants. With a smaller diameter than traditional implants, these posts will involve less impact to your jawbone. Additionally, your surgeon will place the implants at an angle. This method will further lessen the impact to your jaw, and it can often reduce the need for bone grafting. The entire procedure will take up to four hours – two hours for the prep work and two hours for the surgery itself. Right after your implant surgery, your dentist will attach your custom-made denture.
Are You a Candidate for Teeth in a Day?
Teeth in a Day may be appropriate if you are missing all or most of your teeth, and you desire a stable, fixed restoration. To determine your eligibility for implants, your doctor will take x-rays and CT scans, looking for signs of bone recession. Diminished bone volume can limit your candidacy for implants. However, we also offer bone grafting and sinus lifts to replace missing tissue. Additionally, the smaller size and unique placement of Teeth in a Day implants can often eliminate the need for bone grafting.
At Chandler Implants & Periodontics, we also offer All-on-4® dental implants. Made by a different company, these restorations are very similar to Teeth in a Day. Nevertheless, one may be more appropriate for your needs and goals. At your consultation, your practitioner will explain both options, helping you select the one that is most suitable for you.
Why Choose Teeth in a Day?
The first benefit of Teeth in a Day is fairly obvious. As the name implies, the treatment can repair your smile and oral function in one convenient office visit. In contrast, with other restorative treatments, you might need temporary restorations and multiple trips to the dentist’s office. Thanks to Teeth in a Day, you will have a stunning smile right after your procedure. As sensitivity subsides, you will also enjoy complete dental function – usually within a few days of your surgery.
The other advantages of Teeth in a Day include:
- Your implant-supported denture will never slip out of place.
- Thanks to its remarkable stability, you can eat a full range of foods with few dietary restrictions, if any.
- Your prosthetic will not cover up your soft palate, which could affect your sense of taste.
- The implants will counteract jawbone recession by sending regenerative signals to your bone tissue.
