Imagine walking into the dentist office knowing that you need to have your remaining teeth removed. You want to be able to smile again, so you hope it won’t take too long to get your replacement teeth.
A few hours later, you walk out of the office. Before you get back to your car, you snap a selfie to share with your family and friends. You can smile, and soon, you will be able to eat foods you have been missing.
How is this possible? You could come to Advanced Dental Associates, where we offer Teeth-in-a-Day™. This solution lets you leave with a reason to smile on the same day your teeth are removed at our San Antonio dentist office.
Why Might You Be Interested In Teeth-In-A-Day?
We hope you never lose any of your teeth, but we also know that more than 35 million Americans are missing one or both rows of their teeth.
Even if you have a few teeth remaining, you may be better off having them removed to make room for a complete replacement of that arch.
It’s also possible that you already have dentures for your missing row of teeth. If so, then you may be plenty familiar with the frustrations that can come from having dentures as well.
Over time, even the best-fitting dentures often become looser and more likely to slip out of place. This can lead to some embarrassing situations when you are speaking or when you are dining with other people. No one wants their “teeth” to slip out when they are telling a story or (trying to) take a bite of food.
Even if you are eating at home, dentures can be frustrating. With traditional dentures, you may have to use denture adhesive to keep them in place. And those adhesives can affect the taste of your food (and not in a good way).
At the same time, you have significantly less power in your bite with dentures than you did when you still had all your teeth. This can make chewing each bite of steak or chicken a chore rather than something you enjoy.
If you want to enjoy smiling and eating again, it’s may to time to try Teeth-in-a-Day at Advanced Dental Associates.
How Does Teeth-In-A-Day Work?
Teeth-in-a-Day starts with the foundation created by dental implants.
Implants were developed to replace the roots of missing teeth. This is good for the health of your jaw. Implants also act as an anchor to hold your dentures securely in place. And in time, they allow you to eat practically as well as you could when you had a full set of healthy teeth.
With a standard implant placement procedure, you would get your implants and then wait months for your mouth to heal. During that time, you might be walking around without any teeth. Even though this is a temporary situation, some people feel self-conscious about it.
Since our doctors can perform the All-on-4® implant placement procedure, we can attach a set of temporary replacement teeth on the same day that you get your dental implants.
That means you will look like you have a full set of teeth when you leave our office.
All-on-4 is also less invasive than standard implant placements since it often uses fewer total implants. This can reduce your recovery time so you can get your permanent dentures attached even sooner.
Then, you will really be able to take full advantage of everything implants can do for you.
Ready To Find Out If Teeth-In-A-Day Is Right For You?
One of the best parts of the work we do at Advanced Dental Associates is seeing our patients’ smiles.
This is true when a patient has a cosmetic procedure like teeth whitening or dental veneers. This is true when a patient has a restorative service such as a dental crown to repair a broken tooth.
And it’s especially true when a patient gets natural-looking replacement teeth that restore both the appearance of their smile and the function of their lost teeth.
