It’s crucial to replace missing teeth, but the time commitment associated with traditional dental implant surgery can be inconvenient. If you’re looking for a quicker option, consider Teeth in One Day.
This new dental implant technique provides the right candidates with stable, fully functional replacement teeth in just one visit. The unique process works by replacing an entire arch of teeth with four immediately loaded dental implants attached to a denture.
How Does Teeth in One Day Offer Results So Quickly?
You may be wondering how it’s possible to replace missing teeth in one day when the traditional implant process can take over six months. The answer is simple. Teeth in One Day was designed to shorten the dental implant waiting period using innovative techniques and principles.
Teeth in One Day implants are unique because they are immediately loaded. Traditional implants typically require a three to six month healing period between implantation and restoration attachment. With an immediately loaded dental implant, Dr. Michael Chung can place a temporary prosthesis over the implant on the same day.
This prosthesis has an incredibly natural appearance and provides an instant smile transformation. However, the temporary denture is for more than looks; it is fully functional. Later, Dr. Chung will swap the temporary restoration with a customized, permanent, and stable set of replacement teeth.
Another key difference that shortens the dental implant timeline is the number of implants used. Dentists have discovered that it is usually not necessary to replace every missing tooth with an implant. The Teeth in One Day process involves placing just four implants per arch of teeth to support a denture. The implants in the back are inserted at an angle, which is unique to this approach and helps eliminate the need for bone grafting.
The Teeth in One Day Process
Now that you know how Teeth in One Day offers results in such a short amount of time, here’s what you can expect from start to finish at our Oakton office. It’s important to understand that while the dental implant procedure only takes one day, you’ll also need to visit our office before and after your procedure.
The Teeth in One Day Process generally involves:
- A consultation
- Pre-operative 3D dental CT scans and treatment planning
- Implant placement and temporary restoration attachment
- Post-operative check-ups during the healing phase
- Permanent restoration placement
In short, the Teeth in One Day process bypasses most of the wait time associated with traditional implants. It eliminates time spent healing without teeth and generally reduces the total number of office visits. Remember that where traditional implants take months, Teeth in One Day offers a much faster alternative, giving you an aesthetic, functional smile on the day of your procedure.
