Modern dental technology provides you with more tooth replacement options than ever before. While traditional dental implants provide effective, long-lasting results, there are some situations when they are not an ideal solution.
Due to the long recovery process, you must be willing to commit to a procedure that will take up to six months to complete. For many individuals, this is less than ideal. Furthermore, if you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, using individual dental implants for each missing tooth can become cost-prohibitive. In these situations, Teeth the Same Day provides you with a highly effective alternative.
Teeth the Same Day is a procedure that uses four strategically placed dental implants to replace an entire arch of teeth. As the name of the procedure implies, you can be fit with your replacement teeth in just one day. If you need to replace a full arch of teeth, same-day dental implants may be the ideal solution.
You can find out whether Teeth the Same Day is right for you by speaking with Dr. Bellisario in person. Please call 610-642-7024 today to schedule a consultation. We serve patients in Ardmore, Bryn Mawr and throughout the Philadelphia area.
Benefits of Teeth the Same Day
During the Teeth the Same Day procedure, four dental implants are placed throughout your jawbone. These implants will attach to a set of dentures, enabling you to receive a securely-fitting replacement arch of teeth that is much more comfortable and effective than traditional dentures.
Same-day dental implants provide you with a variety of benefits, including:
- Fully restored bite function, allowing you to eat whatever you want
- Receive your replacement teeth the same day as the dental implants are placed
- Beautiful, natural looking results
- Eliminates the need for a bone graft in patients with insufficient jawbone density to accommodate traditional dental implants
- More cost-effective solution than traditional dental implants
- Easy to care for your new restoration
With Teeth the Same Day, Dr. Bellisario can restore the strength, functionality and look of your natural teeth without the long wait associated with traditional dental implants.
Am I a Candidate for Same-Day Dental Implants?
Teeth the Same Day is generally an ideal solution for anyone who needs to replace a full arch of teeth. If you are only missing a few teeth, traditional dental implants will usually be a more effective option to address your needs.
In addition, good candidates for same-day dental implants:
- Are in good overall health
- Are free of gum disease and other oral health issues
- Do not smoke or are willing to quit prior to the procedure
While Teeth the Same Day eliminates the need for bone grafts in most situations, there may some instances where a bone graft is required if you lack sufficient bone structure to accommodate the implants. However, most patients are able to avoid a bone graft because the two implants in the back of your arch are tilted up to 45 degrees.
Your Teeth the Same Day Procedure
Dr. Bellisario uses 3D imaging technology to create a highly detailed and accurate image of your jaw, including all surrounding blood vessels, muscles and nerves. This imagery is used to guide the placement of the four dental implants, ensuring they are inserted in the precise location necessary to create the most stability for your new arch of replacement teeth. This process will be completed during a separate office visit that occurs before your surgery.
You will then return to our office so that Dr. Bellisario can place the dental implants into your jawbone. A temporary restoration will be attached to the implants, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of your replacement teeth right away.
You will still need to undergo a healing process where the dental implants fuse with your jawbone. This process is called osseointegration, and it may take 3-6 months to complete. Once your jaw has fully healed, Dr. Binon will replace your temporary restoration with a customized set of dentures that will be permanently attached to your implants and serve as your new replacement teeth.
