TEETH-IN-A-DAY™ is the immediate functional loading of titanium dental implants. This protocol may interest patients who wish to reduce, or even eliminate, the waiting period for implant supported fixed teeth. Permanent, fixed teeth are placed immediately at the time of extractions. At no time would you be required to wear a removable denture.
Teeth-In-A-Day™ dramatically benefits patients with loose, missing, or decayed teeth, whether occurring naturally or from an accident. Patients of all ages opt for this treatment for both oral health and cosmetic reasons.
How it works:
On the day of the dental implant placement, Dr. Lippisch or Dr. Engebretsen will remove any unsightly teeth, any periodontal disease and infected tissue. Then an appropriate number of Titanium Dental Implants (the sub-structure of the prosthesis) will be gently placed within the bone. During this procedure, your restorative dentist will fabricate the temporary, non-removable, fixed prosthesis (teeth). The prosthesis is highly aesthetic, adapting to your own face and smile line. You leave the office that same day with a stable, cosmetically pleasing smile. This prosthesis cannot be removed by you and is not removed by the restorative dentist for a few months.
Several months later, when the implants have totally fused to the natural bone, the temporary prosthesis will be replaced with a stronger permanent one. The time also allows for the patient to request any changes in appearance (size, shape and color) of the teeth. This prosthesis will have a strong titanium support for the teeth. Even during this period you will not ever wear a removable denture.
