Who says getting a brand-new smile needs to take forever? Here at Greene Dental Group, we understand that after someone has lost one or more teeth that the goal is always to get a full smile again. We also understand that losing teeth can make it challenging to chew certain foods properly and that it also can affect speech. But what if we told you that our dental team can give you a complete smile the very same day, in just a few hours?
Same day teeth is an incredibly revolutionary way for patients with tooth loss to get dental implants placed and working in just one day. With traditional implants, it takes months for the implant and jawbone to fuse together. During this time, the implant is not fully functional and patients may have to wait upwards of 9 months to one year just to get a fully functional implant. The good news is that same day teeth does all of this in one day.
One day? How is that possible?
We really have to thank the amazing technology that we have for being able to place an implant and then to immediately place a crown, bridge or full dentures on top of the implant (or implants). This means that you’ll walk out of the office with implants and a full smile. This also negates the need for wearing those flimsy temporary crowns or dentures.
There are still several steps involved in getting same-day teeth. When you come into the office you can expect our dentist to,
- Take X-rays and CT scans of your mouth to make sure your jawbone is healthy enough for treatment and to determine exactly where to place the implant
- Make any necessary restorations such as dentures or a crown
- Place the implant or implants during a minor, in-office surgery
- Place fixed false teeth in place over the implants after surgery
In about 3-6 months, you will come back into the office to see how everything has healed. At that time, your permanent restoration (e.g. dentures; bridge) will be placed over the implant.
