Can Dental Implants Be Done in One Day?

While traditional dentures are certainly an improvement over missing teeth, patients using traditional dentures often experience a number of inconveniences. Frequent issues include:

  • Slippage along the gum line
  • Discomfort due to an improper fit
  • Messy adhesives or pastes
  • Difficulty chewing or speaking

Implant-supported dentures can resolve these common problems, providing added stability and comfort with dental implants that become a permanent part of your mouth. With our cosmetic dentist, Wayde Fawcett, DDS, many of our patients who choose to upgrade from their traditional dentures select the Teeth in a Day dental implant technique to receive a completely rejuvenated smile in just one day.

Same-Day Dental Implants

While a full set of dental implants usually takes 6-18 months to complete, the Teeth in a Day system can typically be completed in a single office visit. Custom-made to fit precisely along your gum line for enhanced comfort, this set of artificial teeth is secured to the jaw using four to six strategically placed dental implants. In addition, your replacement teeth are created in our on-site laboratory to give you a new smile designed with a natural-looking aesthetic—with benefits you can begin to enjoy instantly.

Since this dental implant technique uses only four to six dental implants to affix your new teeth into place, bone grafting is typically not required. As a result, the system is a popular alternative for patients who are not ideal candidates for a full set of dental implants or patients with minimal jawbone density.

If you would like to learn more about this technology, or to schedule a consultation to see if this innovative tooth replacement method can help restore your smile, please contact our practice today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fawcett.
