One of the most exciting innovations in implant dentistry is “Immediate Restoration or “Teeth in a Day.” This convenient treatment can be used for one or several teeth, but it is most ideal for replacement of all the teeth in an arch. If you are already missing teeth or have hopeless teeth that need to be removed, it is often possible to remove teeth, place the dental implants, and secure fixed teeth all in one day.
This technique requires careful pretreatment planning using 3-dimensional CT imaging and virtual surgical planning technology and careful coordination with your restorative dentist. Your dentist will prepare a provisional full-arch prosthesis to be secured at the very time the teeth are removed and the implants are placed. This prosthesis can function for several months. Once the implants are fully healed, a beautiful final prosthesis can be made to your exact desires for tooth size, color and position.
Walk in with dentures, and walk out with teeth. It sounds too good to be true, but it can be a reality for you. We have had great success with this treatment option, and it is gaining popularity quickly. It is the preferred treatment and is possible in most situations where all the teeth in an arch are missing. At your consultation, Dr. Stout will be able to determine if you are a candidate.
