Teeth In A Day: Everything You Need to Know

Senior couple with teeth in a day dental implantsLosing your teeth is not easy and it can greatly affect your self-confidence. Getting dentures is a process that requires removing any remaining teeth, getting oral impressions, placing dental implants to hold the dentures, crafting the dentures, all over a course of months. With teeth in a day, you walk out the same day with dentures.

We recommend talking with Dr. Markle or Dr. Herman about your options for replacing missing teeth. They can give you custom results to restore your smile. In this article, we talk about the process of getting teeth in a day, including the benefits and costs, so keep reading.

What is Teeth In A Day?

Teeth in a day is a dental implant restoration where all of your damaged teeth are extracted, implants are placed, and temporary dentures are secured to the implants all in one day.

When it comes to the best option for teeth replacement, dental implants come closest to having real teeth. People won't notice that your teeth are not natural because they blend in and look so real.

With teeth in a day, no one has to know that you've had a dental procedure. Truly, it can be a life-changing solution for you.

How Long Do Teeth In A Day Take?

One day. You walk in for your appointment and you walk out of the office with fully functioning teeth. Temporary dentures held by dental implants allow you to talk, smile, and eat with confidence. Teeth in a day can prevent bone loss as the implants act like roots of teeth. It's the best treatment for a row of severely damaged teeth.

You can be a candidate for teeth in a day if you have enough bone density, have no contraindications, and your natural teeth are too damaged to save.

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Markle or Dr. Herman to answer all of your questions about the procedure. They can determine if this is the right treatment for you and give you other options if it is not.

Are Same-Day Dental Implants Any Good?

Traditional implant supported dentures can take months. After tooth extraction, the patient needs to wait for at least 2 months before the periodontist places the implants. The entire procedure can take up to 10 months to allow for time to heal.

Teeth in a day, on the other hand, is much quicker. After consultation, the doctor can tell you whether you are a good candidate. There's no need for a healing process as you'll have temporary teeth right after tooth extraction.

Benefits of Teeth in a day:

  • Patients can leave the clinic with fully functional teeth.
  • It can prevent bone loss which saves the structure of the patient's jaw.
  • Your gums only need to heal one time versus after extraction and then again after the implants.
  • Because you will have temporary teeth, you don't have to worry about bacteria or contaminants in the tooth socket. We do still recommend that you always practice good oral hygiene to prevent gum infection.

While teeth in a day have a lot of advantages, it also has some downsides. There might be swelling and discomfort after the procedure. To avoid problems, it's important that the patient is healthy and doesn't smoke. Also, ensure that you choose one of the best periodontists in Baton Rouge, like Dr. Markle or Dr. Herman, for teeth in a day to avoid complications down the road.

Aftercare for Teeth in A Day

Should you decide to get teeth in a day, make sure that you know how to take care of your oral health. Dr. Markle or Dr. Herman will provide you with instructions for proper aftercare. Practice good oral hygiene. Speak with Dr. Markle or Dr. Herman about your questions. Regular dental visits will help immensely. With a regular dental checkup, the dentist can see potential problems and provide you with the best solutions to alleviate issues.

How Much Do Teeth In A Day Cost?
