Several different methods can be used to restore missing teeth with dental implants. The traditional approach involves placing the implant and then waiting several months before attaching abutments and restorations. However, the process of getting new teeth in one day is done a bit differently. Here’s how it works.
The Teeth in One Day Process
A new dental implant technique makes it possible to get implants and replacement teeth in a single appointment. This technique employs advanced mechanics to support a full arch of teeth with four implants.
To do dental implants in one day, Dr. Michael Chung starts by taking a 3D dental CT scan. This scan helps him find the densest areas of bone in the jaw and plan the implant placement.
After planning the treatment, Dr. Chung strategically places the implants during a minimally-invasive procedure. Any necessary tooth extractions are also done at this time. Since so few implants are needed and they are inserted at a unique angle, many Teeth in One Day patients can skip the added step of bone grafting.
Immediately following implant insertion, Dr. Chung places high-quality, fully functioning temporary teeth while the final teeth are fabricated. Teeth in One Day patients leave our Oakton office with a fully functional and aesthetically pleasing smile. All that’s left is to return for a follow-up visit, where Dr. Chung will place the permanent restorations.
It’s essential to know that Teeth in One Day works best for patients missing an entire arch of teeth. This technique is the modern alternative to dentures.
If you’re missing a limited number of teeth, replacing a full arch with Teeth in One Day may not be the best solution. The traditional dental implant process will likely work best for your needs.
