FAQs About Teeth in a Day
Teeth in a Day is an innovative dental procedure that makes it possible to remove a damaged tooth and replace it with a dental implant-supported restoration on the same day. The extraction procedure, implant insertion, and placement of prosthetics are completed within one day, meaning the patient can walk out of the office with a new smile on the same say as the implant surgery.
This dental procedure removes long healing and recovery periods, usually associated with traditional dental implant placement. If the patient is eligible for the treatment, teeth in a day can be used to restore single, multiple, and entire teeth set.
Frequently asked questions about Teeth in a day
The following are questions most patients usually want an answer to when considering Teeth in a Day:
Is the procedure painful?
The Teeth in a Day procedure is rarely painful, and the experience is identical to regular dental implant surgery. The discomfort most patients feel is during post-surgery recovery after the sedation has worn off, or due to bruising and swelling. The dentist will try to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure and recommend painkillers to deal with post-operative pain. The dentist will discuss different sedation options with the patient before commencing surgery.
Why is it preferable?
Teeth in a Day is currently one of the most innovative and reliable methods of restoring a lost tooth or teeth. It gives patients better aesthetics and functionality faster than most restorations available. When performed by a highly trained professional, patients can be assured of an excellent outcome with minimal side effects and complications.
How long is the recovery period?
The typical healing period for Teeth in a Day or any implant whatsoever is six to eight weeks. In this case, healing means the time it takes for the titanium implant to fuse with the bone in a process known as osseointegration. Healing finishes once the osseointegration completes.
For effective healing, patients must be careful on how they utilize their teeth during the six to eight-week period. Implant failure can occur from any force that causes the implant to shift in the early healing stage. Dentists will generally advise their patients to stick to soft diets and avoid teeth grinding. A mouthguard may be provided for use until healing is complete.
Who is eligible for Teeth in a day?
The requirements for Teeth in a Day is the same for conventional dental implants. An ideal candidate for the procedure must have enough bone mass, and healthy bone and gum tissues. Patients with risk factors such as smoking, uncontrolled diabetes, extended steroid use, or undergoing chemotherapy may not be eligible because those factors affect proper recovery. The dentist will perform a thorough assessment of the patient to be sure of their eligibility before performing the surgical procedure.
With continuous development in terms of tools and techniques, it is now possible to achieve success, even in situations that pose significant challenges. Once the implant is in place, the dentist will place the prosthetic without waiting for the bone to heal around the implant.
