People with missing teeth today have various options available to them to replace their missing teeth. Our specialists at City Smiles DC are highly qualified and will help you get your missing teeth replaced by way of the teeth-in-a-day procedure. We have the most technologically advanced dental implant solutions that will help you get your tooth or teeth replaced within the same day!
During the teeth-in-a-day dental process, the dental implant is attached directly into the jawbone. The teeth-in-a-day procedure is usually quick and will be done and completed within hours. This makes it the best option for patients who wish to have their teeth replaced quickly without having to wait for many days.
What Does Teeth-in-a-Day Entail?
Teeth-in-a-day is a dental procedure that relies on 4 dental implants that are used to replace the whole arc of the teeth. The process usually gives the patient a cost-effective solution compared to using separate implants for every tooth that needs to be replaced. Please note that in the course of the procedure, our highly skilled and professional dentists will work to ensure that they insert the dental implant strategically through your jawbone. This will go a long way in ensuring that when the dentures are finally placed, they will be attached very firmly.
The success of the teeth-in-a-day procedure usually relies on the ability of our dentist to place the dental implants precisely in the right location. For this level of precision to be achieved, our dentists normally use 3D imaging technology which usually gives them a highly accurate blueprint of where they will place the implants.
Our specialists rely on some of the most advanced diagnostic equipment for imaging when they are planning for the teeth-in-a-day procedure. For instance, they use a cone beam CT scanner that creates a complete 3D image of a patient’s jawbone including the surrounding muscles, nerves, and even blood vessels.
Planning of the Placement of a Patient’s Dental Implants
After the images have been received from the advanced cone beam CT scanner, our specialists will then plan the perfect placement position of the dental implant in the jaw. They will then ensure that the implants are positioned in a way that offers the best stability for a patient’s new dental restoration.
Importance of Creating a Surgical Guide
It is important that the dentist preparing to perform the teeth-in-a-day dental procedure prepares a surgical guide. It is this guide that the dentist will use when he/she is finally performing the procedure. The guide will help the dentist to eliminate any chance for potential errors thereby bringing about the most accurate results possible. This helps us to ensure the process goes smoothly, and that the results last for well into the future.
