Teeth-In-A-Day: Your Best Choice for an Immediate Complete Smile
July 09, 2013 at 6:43 AM
Ok, so you’ve had a tooth extracted. The dentist says that nothing much can be done and you’ve got to leave the empty space just so until the wound heals. According to the dentist, it’s going to take a minimum of 20 days for the wound to heal. That means, you are going to be walking about with a gap-toothed smile for the next 20 days and you are desperate. Is there no other option?
Having an empty space in your beautiful face and wonderful smile is no longer required. There is a revolutionary new procedure called Teeth-In-A-Day can be done by a specialized oral surgeon to replace your missing tooth with an implant and prosthesis immediately.
How it Works
Step #1 — Extraction and bone preparation for the Teeth-In-A-Day prosthesis
The oral surgeon will extract the tooth and prepare the socket for a special dental implant immediately. The implant is secured in place with sutures and the gum tissue is secured over it. For patients with poor socket stability, the oral surgeon may have to attempt bone grafting to build up the socket and provide strength to the teeth in a day implant as it heals. This ensures that the Teeth-In-A-Day implant will remain in place while the socket heals.
Step #2 — Placing the prosthesis
Before the tooth was extracted, the oral surgeon will have taken a dental measurement and prepared a prosthesis that will sit on top of the implant. As soon the implant is fixed into the extracted socket, the oral surgeon specialist will attach the prosthesis in place and places the necessary stabilizing sutures. The patient can actually leave the clinic in about 90 minutes with an extraction complete and a new artificial prosthesis in place. No one will ever know that it is an artificial tooth and your smile remains the same.
As you can see, a same day tooth replacement is completely possible with the Teeth-In-A-Day implant procedure. The entire Teeth-In-A-Day procedure takes anywhere from 60 minutes to 90 minutes and is completed under numbing anesthesia. That means that the procedure is painless and very comfortable.
