How Popular Are Teeth in a Day?

Teeth in a dayTeeth in a day (also known as immediate loading dental implants) have been around for several decades, but they are just now coming into the mainstream of dental treatment. There are a variety of reasons that dentists and their patients opt for the this process; here’s a brief list of the advantages of this type of restoration, which may help to explain why it is so popular.

Reasons why teeth in a day dental implants are a popular choice

  1. Teeth in a day can be used by the patient immediately. Unlike other types of dental implants, a patient can start using his or her dental overdentures immediately. The recovery period from this procedure is brief, and you can eat and speak normally overnight.
  2. Teeth in a day implant supported structures are a better clinical choice than long span bridges and removable dentures in most cases. Bridges require a dentist to alter the structure of the teeth on either side of missing teeth, and can be quite hard to clean around. Dentures cover the palate, reducing a patient’s sense of taste. These dental implant prostheses have none of these limitations.
  3. Teeth in a day restorations look and function like natural teeth. Often, the only people who may know that you have dental implants are your dental team – they are that natural looking!
  4. Teeth in a day stay in place! Unlike dentures, these overdentures are only removed from your mouth by your dentist a few times a year for routine cleaning and maintenance.
  5. Teeth in a day implants are easy to care for. Beyond cleanings at your dental visit, the only things you have to do to keep your teeth in a day restorations (and the rest of your mouth) in good shape are to brush them.

“Teeth in a day dental implants provide significant clinical and aesthetic benefits,” says Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist with a practice in central Phoenix. “There’s little mystery why they have become so popular.”
