TEETH-IN-A-DAY is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure. This technology was developed by Nobel Biocare and utilizes collaboration between both the restorative doctor (dentist or prosthodontist) and the oral surgeon. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement.
Normally impressions or molds are taken of your upper and lower teeth/jaw. Then a lab will make a temporary set of teeth that will be screwed into your soon to be placed dental implants. Four or more dental implants are required to be placed in one jaw to allow for this to be completed. This procedure is for a person that is already missing all of their teeth or that are about to have all of their teeth in a jaw removed due to cavities for example. Once the temporary teeth are fabricated then the surgery (removal of teeth if needed and placement of dental implants) is completed by the surgeon and usually that day the temporary teeth are screwed into the dental implants. This can be done with one jaw or both jaws at the same-time. After a period of time for healing has occurred then the temporary dentures are unscrewed from the dental implants and the final denture is then fabricated and screwed into the dental implants. This process is not another surgery. This can usually be done at the dentist office with little to no local anesthesia.
