Teeth-in-a-Day in Virginia Beach, VA is a wild new procedure that fits fully functional dental implants in just one dental visit. With modern technology, long recovery and wait times for dental implants can be a thing of the past.

How Will Your Periodontist Plan Your Treatment?

To start, your dental professional will use the most cutting edge scan technology to make highly detailed images of your bite and jaw overall. Your periodontist will talk with your at length to explain your particular treatment plan and make sure you understand any risks involved. Typically, treatment entails between 4 and 8 implants placed in either the lower or upper jaw. Your new artificial teeth are carefully designed to fit your mouth and give you the perfect smile.

What Are the Advantages?

 There are many advantages to the procedure, but here are the most talked about:

  • It’s quick. Traditional implants can take months to complete as you recover from the procedure. However, teeth-in-a-day only takes one visit after the planning stage.
  • Recovery is relatively comfortable. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, your recovery period is short and relatively comfortable. You might not even need prescription painkillers, as over the counter medications can be enough.
  • Use local anesthesia. If you are nervous about general anesthesia, you can opt for local anesthesia instead. Local anesthetics are a bit safer and you can remain conscious.

 Are There Any Disadvantages?

The procedure does come with a few disadvantages:

  • Because it’s so specialized, some dental professionals cannot properly do the treatment.
  • If your overall health isn’t stable, you may not be a good candidate for the procedure.
  • As with any surgical procedure, there is some risk of infection or delayed healing.
