Teeth in a Day: How Implant Supported Dentures Can Transform Your Smile
At Periodontal Associates of Memphis, we understand the importance of having a beautiful smile. It can boost your confidence, improve your self-esteem, and even positively impact your overall health. However, missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures can make it difficult to achieve that perfect smile. That’s where implant-supported dentures come in.
Implant-supported dentures are a type of denture that is anchored to dental implants, providing a more secure and stable fit than traditional dentures. And with the Teeth in a Day procedure, you can even have a brand new smile in just one day.
The Teeth in a Day procedure involves placing dental implants and attaching a temporary set of teeth all in one appointment. This means you can leave our office with a beautiful, functional smile the same day as your procedure.
What are Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are a type of denture that is anchored to dental implants instead of resting on the gums like traditional dentures. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone to create a stable foundation for the denture.
There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and ball-retained. Bar-retained dentures use a thin metal bar that is attached to the implants, while ball-retained dentures use a ball-and-socket mechanism to attach the denture to the implants.
Compared to traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures offer several advantages. They are more stable and secure, which means they won’t slip or shift while eating or speaking. They also help preserve the jawbone, which can deteriorate over time when teeth are missing. Additionally, implant-supported dentures look and feel more like natural teeth, which can boost confidence and self-esteem.
The Teeth in a Day Procedure
Teeth in a Day is a revolutionary dental procedure that allows patients to receive a full set of teeth in just one day. This procedure is ideal for those who have lost most or all of their teeth due to injury, decay, or other dental issues.
The Teeth in a Day procedure involves the placement of dental implants that support a full arch of teeth. The implants are placed strategically in the jawbone to provide maximum stability and support. Once the implants are in place, a temporary set of teeth is attached to the implants, allowing patients to leave the office with a full set of functional teeth.
The Teeth in a Day procedure typically takes about 4-6 hours to complete, depending on the number of implants needed and the complexity of the case. Patients are given local anesthesia to ensure their comfort during the procedure.
After the procedure, patients may experience some discomfort and swelling, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and ice packs. Patients are advised to stick to a soft food diet for the first few days and to avoid strenuous physical activity for a week or two.
The success rate of Teeth in a Day is very high, with most patients experiencing little to no complications. With proper care and maintenance, the temporary set of teeth can last for several months while the implants fuse with the jawbone. Once the implants have fully integrated, a permanent set of teeth can be attached to the implants, providing patients with a beautiful, functional smile that can last a lifetime.
Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth in a Day?
Teeth in a Day is a revolutionary dental procedure that allows patients to receive a full set of teeth in just one day. However, not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure. Factors that determine candidacy include the amount of bone in the jaw, the overall health of the patient, and the patient’s commitment to maintaining good oral hygiene.
Patients who have lost all or most of their teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease may be good candidates for Teeth in a Day. Additionally, patients who have been wearing traditional dentures for a long time and are experiencing discomfort or difficulty with eating and speaking may also benefit from this procedure.
However, patients with certain health conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes, heart disease, or autoimmune disorders may not be eligible for Teeth in a Day. It is important to discuss any health concerns with our team to determine if this procedure is right for you.
