Houston Dentist Offers Patients an Alternative to Dentures and New Teeth in One Day
Dr. Wayde Fawcett uses new technology and materials with the All-on-4 procedure, an alternative to dentures and traditional dental implants that gives patients a full set of new teeth in one visit.
Houston, TX – Dr. Wayde Fawcett, a Houston cosmetic dentist, is a firm believer in keeping up with advances in technology and research. Recently, he has been offering an alternative to traditional dental implants for patients who do not want to deal with the hassle of dentures. At the Fawcett Center for Dentistry, Dr. Fawcett performs the All-on-4™ procedure, providing patients with new teeth in a single visit.
For patients who have missing teeth, or whose teeth are in poor condition, options for tooth replacement can be limited. In the past, if there was not enough bone for an implant where the patient had lost a tooth, dentures were the patient’s only choice.
Teeth-In-A-Day, using the All-on-4™ technique, is for patients whose teeth have become compromised and want to avoid a removable denture. Dr. Fawcett says his patients want to be able to chew as if they have their own natural teeth without the hassle of a removable device.
Same Day Teeth accomplishes two goals simultaneously:
- Old, worn, and damaged teeth are removed
- Dental implants and teeth are placed in the same day
While dental implants have been around for 20-30 years, Dr. Fawcett highlights that the All-on-4™ technique employs breakthrough technology and materials to accomplish the procedure faster than any traditional dental implants allow. With traditional dental implants, patients must use a denture for 3-9 months while the gum heals. The All-on-4™ procedure allows the patient to have solid teeth in their mouth from the very first day.
In order to perform the procedure, Dr. Fawcett utilizes a 3D scan to make a predictable diagnosis and plan the case ahead of time. Typically, dental implant procedures involve seeing both an oral surgeon and a prosthetic dentist. However, Dr. Fawcett is able to fill both roles during Teeth-In-A-Day procedures.
According to Dr. Fawcett, the All-on-4™ technique has a proven track record of success over the past ten years. He says, “Teeth-In-A-Day using the All-on-4™ procedure allows patients to immediately regain the ability to chew normally again.” In the end, Dr. Fawcett’s Houston cosmetic dentistry patients are consistently delighted with their results.
