Today, several effective alternatives to dentures are widely available.
Traditional removable dentures to replace missing teeth were the only choice for many years. Unfortunately, these appliances are unstable, uncomfortable and ill-fitting in many cases, hindering the wearer’s ability to speak and eat effectively.
Fortunately, the Teeth in a Day approach, also known as immediate dentures or fixed dentures, is an excellent alternative. Today, this process is trusted and preferred by experienced dental professionals around the world.
What Are Immediate Dentures?
Teeth in a Day is a modern dental procedure that allows the patient to get permanent, affixed dentures in just one day. Unlike conventional dentures, which can take multiple appointments over the course of several months, these denture alternatives are installed in one single clinical office visit. And these appliances are not removable.
The Teeth in a Day procedure uses permanent dental implants that look, feel and work just like natural teeth. Patients who opt for these denture alternatives are able to eat and speak clearly right away; and they leave their appointments with strong, healthy smiles.
How Does the Procedure Work?
During your initial consultation in our office, our expert team uses high-resolution scans and virtual software to map out and plan the implant design and procedure. Technicians prepare temporary crowns, which are customized to complement your facial structure and smile.
At the time of the clinical appointment, any damaged teeth are extracted, and replacement root implants are placed in the jawbone. The crowns are then attached, resulting in teeth that are both attractive and immediately functional.
Within one month of the Teeth in a Day procedure, the crowns can be permanently fixed into place in one quick office visit. No one will ever know they aren’t your own natural teeth!
Are You a Candidate for Teeth in a Day?
According to the American Dental Association, damaged or missing teeth must be replaced to maintain a healthy bite and prevent bone loss in the surrounding teeth. Dental implants of this type are recognized as safe and highly effective.
Many patients opt for one-day dentures, as they are permanent solutions for tooth loss due to injury, gum disease or dental decay. Immediate dentures also typically require less healing time, and many patients appreciate how much they feel like natural teeth.
Teeth in a Day is appropriate for the majority of our patients; however, those patients who lack adequate bone tissue in the jaw may require a bone grafting procedure prior to the final fitting of the dental implants.
