Have you been suffering for many years with your teeth. Is your dentist “patching your teeth”? Do you have periodontal disease, or loose teeth and have trouble eating? Are you experiencing pain with your teeth? Are you suffering with an ill fitting partial denture or even a poor fitting full denture. Are you self conscious about your smile? Have you heard of Teeth in a Day?
What is Teeth-in-a-Day?
Teeth in a day is a procedure in which dental implants are placed in the jaw and a full set of replacement teeth are attached to them on the same day. This allows patients to have a functional set of teeth immediately, rather than waiting for the traditional healing process to take place. It is also known as All-on-4 or Same Day Teeth.
What is All-on-4?
All-on-4 is a dental implant procedure that uses only four dental implants on each full arch of teeth, eliminating the need for bone grafts and allowing the entire procedure to be completed in just one day. If you have significant tooth loss or if you are looking for an alternative to dentures you may be a good candidate.
The All-on-4 process in our Dental Clinic in Larnaca:
- Consult with our professional doctors to discuss your medical history, ask questions, and determine whether All-on-4 is the right procedure for you.
- An in-office cat scan will be used to produce 3D images of your mouth, which will then be utilized to identify important bones and locate your nerves and sinuses.
- The surgical team of our dental clinic will carefully plan your smile before the procedure and develop a specially fitted bridge ahead of time.
- The procedure itself will take place in one day. The necessary teeth are removed, new implants are placed, and we adapt your teeth to your new implants.
Now, with as few as four dental implants per BestDentistLarnaca.com Dental Clinic can construct a full set of teeth and attach it to those four dental implants on the day of surgery. This is what you may have seen advertised as “Teeth in a Day”. Let me explain the process further.
If you are faced with finally making the decision to loose all your teeth, or you already have a full denture and you have trouble eating and tasting your food, one option for your long-term health and obtaining a beautiful, younger-looking smile is Teeth in a Day.
We would first have you come in and get a special 3D picture of your jaw and teeth. We would next get some stone study models of your existing dentition and then do a full examination to see if you are a candidate for dental implants. If adequate bone is present and you are faced with losing all your teeth, you would then be appointed with an oral surgeon or periodontist for a surgery evaluation. If the surgeon feels you are a candidate for dental implants, you would come back to us and we would take preliminary impressions for a denture that will be attached to your implants on the day of surgery.
At the surgical appointment, your teeth would be removed and four dental implants per arch would be implanted by the surgeon. We would then come to his or her office and attach the denture to your implants that day. This denture is a transitional denture that you would wear for about three months.
Once the implants have been integrated into your jaw bone, which takes about three months, you would come back to our dental clinic and we would take impressions for a computer-generated titanium bar that fits those four dental implants exactly.
Teeth are then added to the bar are screwed down to the implants. The prosthesis can only be removed by the dentist. You now have a comfortable, esthetic, functioning full set of teeth where you can taste your food, talk normally and have a beautiful smile and feel confident. This is called a hybrid denture.
As far as care for your new prosthesis, some people ask if food gets under the denture as the denture sits on the gum tissue. The answer is no, not really, you still have to brush it and we show you how to floss under it.
The hybrid denture is almost better than natural teeth because it doesn’t get cavities or gum disease and should last a lifetime. Once a year, we may want to remove it and place it in our ultrasonic cleaner to make sure there is no plaque or tartar underneath it and that the tissues under it are healthy. Other than that you are good to go.
