Traditional dental implants are an ideal solution for patients who only need to replace one or two teeth. However, this process can be very time consuming and can take up to 6 months to complete.
If you’re looking to replace a full arch of teeth, Teeth in a Day is a technological innovation which may provide a better solution for your needs.
At Future Smiles, we understand that everyone’s oral needs are different, which is why we offer a wide range of tooth replacement options from Teeth in a Day to traditional full/partial dentures and implant-supported teeth.
Whatever you choose, we offer flexible payment options to make your denture experience as easy, stress-free, and seamless as possible.
One of the greatest benefits of the Teeth in a Day option is that it is suitable for the majority of patients who need to replace a full arch of teeth. However, there are certain criteria that need to be met in order to be considered a good candidate, including:
As with traditional dental implants, the density of your jaw bone is an important consideration when determining your candidacy for Teeth in a Day. The good news? Significantly less bone structure is required to accomodate the implants used as part of the Teeth in a Day procedure.
This is because this treatment uses longer implants, allowing them to fuse more easily with your natural bone structure.
While age itself isn’t necessarily a factor in whether or not you will be a suitable candidate for Teeth in a Day, there are certain age-related health conditions that may impact your candidacy for the procedure.
During an initial consultation with your denturist, they will be able to review your medical history to ensure that you don’t suffer from any conditions that may impact your ability to undergo this treatment.
While smoking won’t rule you out as a candidate for Teeth in a Day, it can be harmful to the dental implants, especially if you’ve undergone a bone graft placement. Smoking will:
Inhibit blood flow to the bone and gum tissues surrounding the implant, making it much more difficult for the implant to fuse with them.
Put you at a higher risk of gum disease, which can affect the success of dental implants.
Pose a huge risk to the healing process and tissue health.
If you are considering undergoing a Teeth in a Day Procedure, denturists strongly recommend that you quit smoking prior to the treatment to ensure the safest and best possible results.
