Teeth in a Day Q & A
What is Teeth in a Day?
Teeth in a Day is a hybrid of dental implants and acrylic bridges. It includes four anchor implants in the top and four in the bottom of the mouth. The implants hold custom-made bridges into place, which gives you a whole mouth of teeth replacements with only eight total implants.
How does the Teeth in a Day procedure work?
First, your Allen and Schwarz Dental dentist performs a comprehensive dental exam, mouth cleaning if necessary, and digital X-rays. If you and your dentist decide together that Teeth in a Day is right for you, you can get started right away.
Your dentist uses digital imaging and specific measurements of your mouth to create perfectly fitted implants and fixed bridges for a natural look and feel. Depending on your situation, you may need tooth extractions before your dentist can prepare your mouth for the new anchor implants. Your dentist administers local anesthesia so you won't experience discomfort during the procedure.
Once your dental implants are securely in place, your dentist attaches the custom bridge, using the implants as support. By the end of your appointment, you can go from having no teeth at all to a bright, natural-looking, and attractive full-mouth smile.
Are my new teeth permanent with the Teeth in a Day procedure?
The teeth that you get during your one-day appointment are actually temporary, but you’ll wear them for at least several months while your mouth heals and adjusts to the implants and bridges. The temporary teeth aren’t removable, and they’re very secure so you can use them just like healthy teeth.
After your mouth is fully healed, it’s normal to have some shifting of gum tissue and minor bone loss. Your new replacement teeth, which your Allen and Schwarz Dental dentist makes for you at around six months after the first appointment, are the ones that become a permanent part of your mouth for many years to come.
One-day teeth replacement is now truly possible thanks to Teeth in a Day. If you’re ready to learn more about how Teeth in a Day can work for you, click online booking or call Allen and Schwarz Dental to set up your consultation now.
