As of late, plenty of commercials have begun promising “Teeth in a Day” or other variations of the same. But is it really possible? Or is it too good to be true? The great news is, it’s true! But the reality is, there is a lot of work that goes into making this possible and successful. In this blog, we will go into detail about the new trend and the truth behind it.
What exactly is Teeth in a Day?
The ‘teeth in a day’ campaign is basically full arch dental implant restorations where all diseased or damaged teeth are removed, and implants are placed and a temporary version of the teeth is then placed. All of this happens on the same day. Once the implant s are healed, and the bone has successfully grown around the implants, the dentist will then replace the temporary teeth by a permanent version.
How does a dental implant procedure work?
A Dental Implant Surgery involves a number of steps. To begin with, your dentist Concord CA will take a detailed look at what your condition is and comes up with an individualized treatment plan along with the Oral Surgeon. Then the orthodontist will drill a small post into your gum and put in a titanium root onto your jaw bone. Although this might be painful initially, it will heal within weeks. Your implanted post will be secure when the jaw bone grows around it.
Why does the final procedure take longer than a day?
Since placing an implant onto your jawbone requires surgery and is a months-long healing process, the final procedure of giving you permanent teeth takes longer than a day. However, much of the assessment of the teeth and removal of damaged ones can often take place in a single visit.
All in all, teeth in a day is only a half-truth as it gives you a new set of temporary teeth in one single visit, but you will have to visit the dentist months later to get your permanent fix.
