Teeth In A Day – Why Might It Be Right For You?

Teeth_In_A_DayWhen you have a number of teeth missing from your mouth, and you need to make a decision about what is best for your oral health, you may read something about the option of “teeth in a day.” While this method, which is also known as immediately loaded dental implants, isn’t for everyone, it can provide clear benefits for patients who meet certain criteria.

Teeth in a day might be right for you if …

  • You’re frequently in the public eye and you can’t afford to be without a permanent dental solution for your missing or loose teeth. With teeth in a day, you will go from your natural teeth to a permanent set of implanted teeth immediately.
  • You do a lot of public speaking, or need to communicate verbally in your job on a regular basis. Immediately loaded dental implants allow you to speak clearly and chew safely.
  • Your gums and jawbone are basically healthy. While almost anyone healthy enough to undergo dental implant surgery can be a candidate for teeth in a day, those with a healthy mouth have the best chances of the procedure being successful.
  • You have time to devote to preparation before your teeth in a day surgery session. While this approach removes the waiting period between removing natural teeth and beginning to use implanted teeth, it requires an investment of time up front to undergo pre-operative examinations, to create a customized arch(es) of teeth, and for your dentist to orchestrate a team of specialists who will create and place the implants.

In addition to explaining how the teeth in a day procedure works, and overseeing the entire process, your dentist will also discuss with you any alternate plans that may need to be made in case it is determined during the procedure itself that your implants will need to be delivered through a more traditional approach.

Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist practicing in Phoenix, says, “If you need a complete teeth replacement option that is minimally disruptive to your life, teeth in a day might be right for you. Your dentist can help you assess its possible benefit to you.”
