Teeth In A DayAn Overview
An Alternative to Dentures: Teeth In A Day
In the past people who suffered from loose, missing, and unsightly teeth only had one choice to replace the appearance of teeth; a denture. A denture only replaces the appearance of teeth, not the function. Dentures have the least patient satisfaction of any dental procedure and often lend a more aged appearance due to bone loss in the jaw and its effects on the fit of your denture.
Amherst, NY dentist Dr. Karl Neuhaus is pleased to be one of few area dentists to offer “Teeth in a Day” with dental implants for loose, missing and unsightly teeth. The immediate restoration of teeth with implants is made possible with digital I-CAT and 3D imaging software. Dr. Karl Neuhaus has been successfully placing oral implants and restoring them for over 10 years.
Teeth In A Day What to Expect
Today’s patients can have their smile completely restored in one day. Incorporating state-of-the-art technology into individualized treatment planning, Dr. Neuhaus is able to offer patients the immediate replacement of teeth with dental implants. The teeth in a day procedure allow people to have their teeth removed, dental implants placed and their smile immediately restored with a temporary dental bridge –all in the same day.
The teeth in a day procedure is possible because of comprehensive pre-treatment planning. Creekside Dentistry and Implantology use advanced 3D imaging software to plan the precise placement of dental implants.
The teeth are removed in a comfortable setting under dental sedation. Next, the dental implants are placed. The dental implant is a titanium post that fuses to the bone, replacing the root of the tooth. Depending on your condition, we may place anywhere from one to several dental implants to replace a single missing tooth or an entire set of missing teeth.
(For patients needing to replace all of their missing teeth, Creekside Dentistry and Implantology also offers the All on 4 procedure.)
A temporary crown or hybrid bridge will be secured to the dental implants to restore esthetics and function. Patients are advised to adhere to a soft diet during the 2 – 3 months following the teeth in a day procedure for proper healing of the dental implants.
When the dental implants have fully integrated with the jaw bone, the temporary bridge will be removed and the permanent bridge will be secured in place for a permanent restoration.
