Greetings San Antonio! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of Advanced Dental Associates. We have long been a provider of quality dental care in San Antonio, and in today’s post we’re excited to discuss one of the most innovative treatments we offer: Teeth-in-a-Day.™
Teeth-in-a-Day™is designed to give you a brand new smile in just one appointment if you’re missing a significant amount of your teeth. Teeth-in-a-Day™ is an especially exciting option for patients who wear dentures, as Teeth-in-a-Day™ is a permanent solution for missing teeth which doesn’t require adhesives. Teeth-in-a-Day™ is a great replacement if your dentures are outdated or ill-fitting. With Teeth-in-a-Day™ you’ll have a brand new smile, and the chewing ability of natural teeth.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not! At Advanced Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX, we can craft you an entirely new smile in a single day. This treatment combines two high quality services: All-On-4® implant bridges and the high quality and completely lifelike Teeth-in-a-Day™ temporary bridges. This treatment option provides you with a one-day smile which will work just like natural teeth in just a few hours.
If you’re interested in Teeth-in-a-Day™, we begin by evaluating your oral health and overall health. You need to be in general good health, and have enough remaining jawbone to stabilize the implants. Most patients meet these requirements, and we can get to work!
This treatment option is completely pain-free, and won’t cause you any discomfort. We use a local anesthetic on your mouth to ensure that you’re numb, and we also offer additional sedation options to ensure a anxiety-free treatment. One of the most popular sedation options with Teeth-in-a-Day™is IV sedation. With this method you are closely monitored, but will feel as if you are asleep during your procedure. Then you wake-up with your new smile!
After you are numb and sedated, we work to place four dental implants in your mouth. Dental implants are a type of artificial tooth root which are used to secure your new teeth. An implant looks almost like a screw, and is constructed out of biocompatible titanium. We then apply Teeth-in-a-Day™temporary bridges for you to wear for two to three months while your gums heal. Over time, the dental implants will fuse into your bone.
Despite their temporary nature, Teeth-in-a-Day™ bridges look and function extremely well. You will be able to chew as if they were your natural teeth. The will also look and feel like real teeth! No one will ever know they’re not your real teeth, that can just be a little secret between you and your dentist.
After your Teeth-in-a-Day™ bridges have been applied, we will schedule a follow-up appointment with you. During this appointment, we’ll ensure that you’re healing properly and are in still in good oral health. We will also work with you to craft a permanent set of teeth. Every aspect of your teeth can be customized to give you the exact smile that you’ve also wanted. You pick-out the appearance and shade of the teeth.
After the dental implants have fused to your bone, you’ll return for one final appointment. During this appointment, we will painless remove your temporary bridges. We will then clean your gums and and dental implants, before placing your permanent set of teeth. Then you’ll have your brand new, permanent smile. You’ll never again have to worry about your dentures falling out, or suffer through the appearance of missing teeth.
