Tooth loss can occur due to disease, decay, trauma, or even simple neglect. While it’s true that significant tooth loss can temporarily affect your ability to enjoy meals and may alter your smile, it opens the door for restorative procedures. At Advanced Implant and Periodontal Specialists in Winchester, VA, we provide a full spectrum of dental replacement options, including the Teeth in a Day treatment concept, which allows you to regain a complete smile in as little as one day. We invite you to learn more about improving your oral health and regaining confidence in your smile.

How Is Teeth in a Day Different from Dentures?

The Teeth in a Day treatment concept offers numerous advantages over traditional dentures, including greater security and stability. Teeth in a Day places a fixed denture on top of dental implants, which means you can enjoy a seamless smile without fear of your dentures slipping or sliding out of place. Additionally, the placement of dental implants helps preserve your oral health, preventing further jawbone deterioration.

What Are the Benefits of Full Arch Treatment?

There are several reasons to choose the Teeth in a Day treatment method, including:

  • Teeth in a Day can replace any number of missing teeth, including entire arches, with a minimal number of implants.
  • This treatment often requires just a single surgery, with permanent replacement teeth added on the same day.
  • The Teeth in a Day treatment method can help to prevent further loss of jawbone and unwanted changes to your facial appearance.
  • Teeth in a Day offers an immediate solution to fill the gaps in your smile, boosting your confidence and preventing further discomfort or self-consciousness due to missing teeth.

Ideal Candidates for Teeth in a Day

At your initial consultation, your doctor will take your medical history, examine your teeth and jaw, and verify your eligibility for a safe and successful procedure.

Missing Teeth

The ideal candidates for Teeth in a Day are missing multiple teeth or have many non-viable teeth that need to be extracted and replaced. With Teeth in a Day, your doctor can restore entire dental arches, even your complete smile.

Good Health

Eligibility for Teeth in a Day also requires good physical health overall, with no underlying medical conditions that would impede your ability to heal following surgery. Good anatomy, including proper nerve and blood vessel positioning, is also important.

What Is Involved in Full Arch Treatment via Teeth in a Day?

On the day of your surgery, you will be welcomed back to a private treatment area where our doctors will administer IV sedation. Once you are fully comfortable, Dr. Bick or Dr. Coleman will carefully extract any teeth that need to come out, place dental implants in your jaw, and affix the denture prosthesis.

Recovery and Aftercare

Most patients who have dental implants placed are pleasantly surprised by the ease of their recovery. It generally takes one to three days before patients feel ready to resume their normal school and work activities. You can anticipate some tenderness during recovery, but this is easily managed with over-the-counter medications and a diet limited to soft foods and liquids. Generally, patients are able to gradually shift back to a more normal diet within the first week or two.
