Teeth in a Day
Same Day Tooth Replacement
Our cutting edge of implant dentistry allows us to remove teeth and place new fixed teeth back immediately. This is done by fixing new teeth on top of your implants in a very precise controlled method.
Some of the indications for this treatment are:
- The tooth being replaced is visible within the smile line
- You don’t want to wear a removable temporary denture
- When all your teeth are being replaced with dental implants
The result is beautiful new teeth in one day.
We perform these procedures in a team approach with our dentist, our implant surgeon and our custom dental lab. The surgery can be done while you are asleep and comfortable utilizing intravenous sedation.
The beauty of this is that all your extractions, all bone procedures and the fabrication of your new teeth are all completed in one day with minimal recovery time. The result is a functional set of teeth that looks and feels natural and allows individuals to once again experience the foods they most enjoy.
Dental implant surgery often requires multiple surgical procedures and numerous visits. However, often the “Teeth in a Day” procedure is much simpler.
How It’s Done
You first come to the office for a consultation with one of our dentist and a CT scan is done. Our custom lab makes a template for the immediate teeth and also produces the custom implant guide for your surgery. These two are matched together so that the implants are precisely placed and that the fixed teeth will fit in the desired positions.
A follow up the next day will ensure the bite and esthetics will be excellent. These temporary teeth are worn for several months until the final bridge is made. It’s almost miraculous and the final results in most cases are stunning.
Having fixed teeth is much more comfortable than to wear a temporary denture for up to six months. This prevents the embarrassing inconveniences of a denture dropping loose and perhaps not being able to smile naturally.
Westcoast International’s Teeth in a Day procedure can be used for a single, multiple tooth or the famous All-On-4™ dental implant technique. The All-On-4™ procedure is the optimal solution for those who have lost or are about to lose all of their upper and/or lower teeth. Our custom laboratory can come as close to having a new set of permanent teeth for you as is currently possible within a day.
Are Teeth in a Day Possible for Everyone?
We always try to provide a fixed temporary when requested, however there are some circumstances when the procedure should not be used. Softer bone quality and the inability to firmly place the implant may lead to early implant failure, if the implant immediately has a tooth or teeth on it. If the Teeth in a Day treatment option is performed, it is absolutely critical to follow our specific home care and diet instructions following the procedure.
Our Teeth in a Day procedures at Westcoast International focus on minimally invasive surgery to deliver maximum results in the shortest time with the least discomfort. Most patients experience only minor soreness the next day and can eat a light meal that same evening.
Many of our patients that undergo the Teeth in a Day procedure are some of the happiest we treat. If your worried about having no teeth after the procedure, we’ll make it a priority to replace them and get you back to normal as fast as possible.
