For years, traditional dental implants have been the most effective solution to replace missing teeth. However, the process can take over six months to complete. While the benefits of dental implants make the procedure worth the wait, it can still be a bit of an inconvenience. Now there is a relatively new procedure called teeth the same day that will eliminate this long waiting period.
With the teeth the same day procedure, four dental implants are strategically placed throughout your jawbone in order to support a denture. This allows you to restore a full arch of teeth in one day. Since the denture is securely attached to the implants, it provides a much more sturdy and permanent restoration than can be achieved with traditional dentures.
Benefits of Teeth the Same Day
You'll experience several important benefits from teeth the same day:
- Beautiful, natural looking results
- Full functionality is restored, eliminating restrictions on what you can eat
- A full arch of teeth can be restored the same day as the dental implants are placed
- Implants are placed in the strongest areas of your jaw, which often eliminates the need for a bone graft
- Maintenance of your new prosthetic teeth is very easy
- More cost-effective treatment than traditional dental implants
Am I a Candidate for Teeth the Same Day?
In general, good candidates for teeth the same day:
- Are in good overall health
- Don't suffer from gum disease
- Have sufficient bone density in their jaw to support dental implants
- Need to replace a full arch of teeth
During your initial consultation, Dr. Bellisario will perform a thorough evaluation in order to determine whether teeth the same day is the right treatment option for you. He'll recommend an individualized treatment plan that will most effectively address your unique needs and goals.
Teeth the Same Day Process
Prior to your procedure, you'll visit our Ardmore dental office so that Dr. Bellisario can create your treatment plan. State-of-the-art 3D digital imaging scans of your mouth will be taken to precisely identify the optimal placement of each dental implant. This imagery will also be used to create a customized set of dentures that will fit the unique contours of your mouth.
On the day of your surgery, Dr. Bellisario will insert four dental implants into your jaw. A temporary restoration will be attached to your implants the same exact day. This restoration will provide you with a fully functional set of replacement teeth immediately.
Over the next few months, your jawbone will fuse around the dental implants. This process, called osseointegration, is what allows your implants to function like a natural tooth root. Once osseointegration is complete, you'll return to our office so that Dr. Bellisario can replace your temporary restoration with a customized set of replacement teeth.
