The Truth about Teeth in a Day Tooth Replacement Therapy
"Can I get new teeth in just one day or just one visit?"
Of course, not every patient is happy with this answer, and we have television, radio, and internet advertising to thank for this. There is no "One size fits all solution" with any medical procedure, and tooth replacement therapies are no different. While some patients merely need a cracked tooth capped, others may need total tooth replacement.
Having said this, it's also true that we may be able to place your new teeth onto your implants on the same day implants are placed. However, the bone beneath, as well as the surrounding tissues, will require time to heal. Once the healing process is complete, usually within three to six months, your replacement teeth will require adjustment for the best fit possible.
Dental Implants in One Visit
Furthermore, promoting "teeth in a day" fails to mention the healing process. Whether we place one or five implants, the area surrounding them will always require time to heal. Unfortunately, by not disclosing this, patients believe that replacing their teeth in a single visit is as simple as getting a car wash.
Our goal is to provide you with the best, most accurate information available. Thus allowing you to make the best possible choice. A clear choice about the tooth replacement therapy that will be of the most significant benefit to you.
