Missing teeth can do a number on your confidence and the health of your mouth. If you’ve been dealing with the consequences of missing teeth for a while, there is no need to suffer any longer with treatment options such as teeth-in-a-day from your Chicago periodontist. This valuable treatment option replaces your teeth almost immediately, and you’ll quickly notice marked improvements in your function, speech and smile.

Who Is the Ideal Candidate?

As with every dental procedure, you’ll want to discuss your options with Dr. Singh before deciding on a course of action. The ideal candidates for this procedure are those who:

  • Have no oral disease
  • Have sufficient bone quantity and quality
  • Have healthy systemic health
  • Require replacement of more than one missing tooth
  • Want teeth that are immediately functional

If you meet these requirements and it is determined that you are a good candidate, you can enjoy a restored, vital smile in just a few hours.

How Does it Work?

Implants are placed in your upper and lower jawbone in four different places, and temporary appliances are placed on top of them in order to give you immediate increased functionality. Over time, the surrounding tissue will integrate with the implant, and the bone will be stimulated to grow. At this point, after three to four months, the permanent teeth are attached to the implants, and you have a radiant smile that will last for decades.

What Are the Benefits?

Teeth-in-a-day is a more affordable option than traditional implants, and allows you to enjoy increased function immediately after treatment. For those who want to leave the office with better looking, more functional, healthier teeth, this is an ideal treatment option.
