Losing a tooth can be distressing, but living without teeth for an extended period of time can be even more frustrating owing to all the negative impacts. Thus, dental specialists strongly recommend tooth replacements as soon as possible.
Campbell Teeth-In-A-Day is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the replacement of multiple missing teeth.
The concept behind teeth-in-a-day
Teeth-in-a-day is a customized, and innovative way of replacing multiple missing teeth. It is a collaborative process that involves upper, and lower jaw teeth replacements in just one visit.
Tooth loss is a prevailing dental problem that often occurs due to extensive dental decay beyond repair, age-related bone loss, periodontal disease, or tooth extraction. Teeth-in-a-day is an effective procedure that offers you a temporary set of artificial teeth that can be retained until your jawbones heal. Once the bone heals, these temporary teeth are replaced with permanent ones.
Benefits of teeth-in-a-day
Teeth-in-a-day, same-day implants, or immediate-load dental implants offer the following benefits:
- Single-day implant placement
- Less time-consuming procedure
- Improves speech and chewing ability
- You do not have to live without teeth for a long time
- Retains your facial shape
- Enhance your facial aesthetics
- Improved self-confidence
Procedure behind teeth-in-a-day treatment
Your dentist will record high-resolution CT images of your oral cavity during your first consultation. The specialists will then use these images to plan the treatment well in advance, minimizing your chairside time on the day of your procedure.
Once you are sedated on the day of the procedure, the specialist will remove all your teeth from the upper jaw, your lower jaw, or the full mouth. This is followed by 4 to 6 dental implant placements. Implants are artificial prostheses that mimic tooth roots, providing anchorage for the crown.
Your dental specialist will get the temporary set of teeth fabricated in the lab the same day and fixed inside your mouth. These remain in place until your jawbone heals.
After the procedure, there is ample time given for healing of your jawbone. Osseointegration between the implants and jawbone may take around 3 to 4 months, during which you need to visit the dentist to ensure you are healing well.
Your specialist may advise a soft or a liquid diet for the next 6 weeks following your teeth-in-a-day procedure to promote healing.
Proper care by good oral hygiene habits, and at least 2 dental cleanings per year can protect your dental implants, and enhance their durability.
Teeth-in-a-day is an excellent tooth replacement solution, especially for those with busy and hectic work schedules. Also, it aids in restoring the oral, form, and function of your oral cavity, which in turn also enhances your overall physical health.
Ensure you take proper care to keep your smile looking healthy for a lifetime.
