Getting your teeth replaced in a single visit, known among implant marketing specialists as “teeth in a day”, is not a new idea. In fact, the procedure has been available for more than a decade. The procedure is actually fairly simple – in practice – and we offer such dental implants in Denver and Littleton.
However, while it is possible to have your natural teeth removed and replaced with dental implants in a single visit, the prosthetic teeth you leave with are, in most cases, temporary replacements.
Of course, since human beings need to eat, and this is difficult to do without teeth, the teeth-in-a-day replacement practice has become quite popular. You will however need to return for permanent tooth replacement within a few months, once your gums and jaw have healed form the original removal and replacement.
Types of tooth replacement available in a single visit
The temporary tooth replacement available in a single visit will most often be an implant, with new teeth attached. Once your mouth has healed from this oral surgery, usually within about three months or so, you will return for your permanent tooth replacement therapy: including a permanent bridge, crown or dentures.
This can be done with a single tooth, a bridge, or an entire mouth full of teeth. Teeth-in-a-day replacement therapy can also be done with a snap-on denture to replace lost teeth.
The thing to remember is that all types of teeth in a day replacements are temporary, because your mouth will require time to heal from the removal of your old teeth and the placement of your new dental implants. While this tooth replacement therapy does save time, you will need to see your dentist again to receive your permanent dental implant replacements.
