Do you have a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth? Has the result been feeling less confident in your smile or having trouble speaking or chewing? Despite missing teeth, some people put off fixing the problem because they do not want to deal with a long, complicated procedure. There is an alternative, though. Teeth-in-a-Day is a system to replace missing teeth in just one appointment.
How the System Works
When you come to see our office, we begin by using advanced technology to create detailed images of your jaw and natural teeth. From these images, we can determine the exact placement of the false teeth we are going to implant. The next step is to insert between four and eight rods—usually four for a single-day procedure—into your jaw. Then, we will design and construct your teeth using special computers and machines. Finally, we screw the false teeth into place on your implants.
The Benefits of a Single Procedure
One of the biggest benefits of Teeth-in-a-Day in San Diego, CA, is the ability to get in and out in one day. Some people cannot afford to take more than one day off of work or simply do not want to spend more than one day going to the dentist. Now you do not have to. Single-day dental implants replace missing teeth permanently. As long as you take care of them, which is as easy as taking care of natural teeth, your implants could last for the rest of your life.
Drawbacks of Teeth-in-a-Day
If you have advanced gum disease, you might not be a good candidate for a dental implant procedure. This is because the implants screw directly into your jaw, but gum disease often deteriorates the jaw bone. As with any surgery, there are risks such as infection, nerve damage or delayed healing. However, a trained doctor and proper aftercare greatly reduce the risks.
