Teeth In A Day
Actual Teeth In A Day patient of Dr. Augustine
Today there are more options than ever before to replace missing teeth. While dental implants remain the most effective solution, modern implant technology now gives you the option of receiving replacement teeth the same day that the teeth are extracted and the dental implants are placed. This option is called Teeth-in-a-Day, All on Four®, or TeethExpress®, and they all eliminate the need for a full immediate removable denture to be worn while the implants integrate.
This process uses 4-5 dental implants to replace an entire arch (upper or lower) of teeth. This can provide you with a cost-effective solution when compared to using a separate implant for every tooth that needs to be replaced. During your procedure, the supportive dental implants will be strategically and surgically placed using computer guided technology and will be spaced throughout your jawbone in order to support a set of fixed prosthetic teeth. Initially, a beautiful set of temporarily fixed teeth are placed until the implants have integrated/fused. Once solid and the tissue is healed, a permanent set customized teeth are placed. Long-term follow up is absolutely necessary following this treatment.
