A lot of advancements have been made in the dental field in the last couple of decades. In fact, progress has been made so quickly that many people still carry around stigmas of dental visits that have long been obsolete.
But if you are looking for dental implant recommendations, one of those new solutions at Dr. Freeman’s office is called Teeth in a Day, a replacement tooth procedure that makes many bold claims about being able to provide patients with beautiful replacements in only one visit.
But how grounded in reality are these claims? Is the treatment as good as it sounds, or is it just hollow promises? To show you how credible these claims are, we will be looking at five of the biggest claims this treatment makes and diving into how substantial they are.
This question is generally pretty subjective — we all have different ideas of what convenience is. But if you consider limited dentist visits and less time away from your obligations convenient, then Teeth in a Day earns the title.
It is common for many dental procedures to require multiple visits, even something as simple as deep cleaning. But Teeth in a Day focuses on minimizing those requirements and setting everything up in a way that allows for drastically reduced time at the dentist.
Even one visit can be considered inconvenient, but when compared to alternative procedures like bone grafting that can be skipped by Teeth in a Day treatment, it is hard to avoid calling it anything but one of the best investments you can make in a dental procedure.
There are different types of implants that can be used for teeth in a day. Traditionally, zygoma and pterygoid implants are examples. The implants can also be placed straight or at an angle. This is done to avoid anatomical structures or to broaden the spread of teeth.
A zygoma implant is anchored into the cheek bone. This is often done to avoid bone grafting or because the maxilla (upper jaw) is not dense enough to support traditional implants.
A pterygoid implant is anchored to the very back of the upper jaw. This area is often very dense and can provide additional stability to the teeth.
As we know, these implants are steadfastly secured to the patient’s bone structure, especially after three months of healing. But does that mean they work as well? Not necessarily, but the special attention to detail and craftsmanship that goes into creating dental implant supported teeth will often work as well as your natural teeth.
Of course, you can do things like regular brushing and flossing to prolong and ensure the integrity of your results. Regular cleanings and checkups are also an integral part of your dental health and the function of your implants.
There are some potential functional disadvantages of immediate loading implants like osseointegration failure and poor healing, but those are typically very rare.
You aren’t making any compromises when it comes to aesthetics or functionality. These teeth will get the job done, but they will also look incredibly natural and beautiful once they are installed, granting you more confidence in your appearance and, for many patients, a better overall quality of life.
We do everything we can to avoid an overly corrected appearance, including crafting teeth fit to your specifications and ensuring that we order implants from the best possible providers who have mastered making realistic-looking teeth.
Here is the big question. There are so many benefits and pluses to Teeth in a Day, so can it really be completed in a single day? While a bit more complicated, the answer is yes, you can have both tooth extraction and implant on the same day.
When you leave our facility, you will have a new set of teeth that will fill in for the ones you have lost. But those are only temporary solutions used for about three months while your unique dentition is created.
After three months, you will have to come back into our office to have your final teeth fabricated. While it might sound frustrating, it is the only way to guarantee that you are getting a new set of teeth that are perfectly tailored to you and your goals.
Besides, very few procedures can offer the same corrections and aesthetic improvement in just a few visits. When all is said and done, you will likely have been willing to attend many more appointments to achieve the typical results for Teeth in a Day.
