The dental implant process generally takes anywhere from three to six months to complete, from initial implant placement to final restoration. However, Drs. Craddock and Dr. Godat, are pleased to also offer the Teeth-In-A-Day procedure to allow patients to go home with a fully functional arch of teeth on the same day their implants are placed.
Teeth-In-A-Day utilizes four dental implants to support an entire arch of tooth restorations. This procedure spaces the implants strategically across the jawbone in order to support a full denture arch. The result is a functional, aesthetically pleasing smile. Dr. Godat and Dr. Craddock offer Teeth-In-A-Day to many patients who wish to have a functional and aesthetic set of teeth during the wait between dental implant placement and final restoration.
This procedure, called Teeth-In-A-Day, uses four dental implants to support an entire arch of tooth restorations. The initial procedure is done in one appointment.
Using the all-on-four dental implant supported restoration allows your jaw to be less impacted than with a full mouth of individual dental implants. It also incurs a lower cost than would be required for a full set of individual implants. In addition, a temporary restoration can be placed before you leave our office, allowing you to return to normal speech and chewing function without waiting months for healing to occur.
Detailed 3D imaging technology provides extremely accurate dental implant placement, allowing for the best possible stability and a higher incidence of implant acceptance.
Once the plan is created for your surgery, Dr. Godat or Dr. Craddock will place the dental implants into your jawbone, provide you with a temporary restoration that attaches to and is supported by the implants.
After the implant sites are fully healed and the jawbone has fused with the titanium, the final customized restoration will be permanently attached to the implants and your new arch of functional, beautiful teeth will be complete.
The Teeth-In-A-Day procedure generally sees patients recover swiftly and with minimal discomfort. Caring for your new teeth can be accomplished similarly to caring for your original teeth, with routine brushing, flossing, and visits to your periodontist to check and maintain your restoration.
