Same-day teeth are a long-term solution to replace missing, failing, decayed or loose teeth using a full set of dental implants placed in one dental appointment. This procedure is usually for people with only a few or no teeth and is a better alternative to placing several traditional dental implants or a full denture set.
During this procedure, the dentist will insert four or six dental implants to replace an entire arch of missing teeth in one day.
Same-day teeth are also known as full mouth dental implants, teeth in a day or all on 4 or all on 6 dental implants.
How do same-day teeth work?
Same-day teeth procedure requires local anaesthesia or sedation. The dentist will surgically place 4 – 6 implants in your jaw to hold the replacement teeth, usually a temporary custom-made bridge or denture. You will visit the dental clinic after 3 – 4 months to get the temporary prostheses.
In most cases, the temporary teeth are fitted on the implants on the same day, but in some cases, you can complete the treatment in one day. These cases include significant bone loss in the jaw, but you can get temporary, removable dentures that the dentist doesn’t attach to the dental implants. The final bridge placement will be after a few months when the implant fuses with the jawbone.
Preparing for same-day teeth procedure
The first step is having a consultation with the dentist to check if you are suitable for a same-day teeth procedure. Most adults with loose or missing teeth can get same-day teeth.
What is the cost of same-day teeth?
Getting same-day teeth is an investment in your smile, and most insurance plans do not cover the treatment. This means you’ll pay out-of-pocket for same-day teeth. Following your consultation, the dentist will inform you of the specific cost of your treatment.
What are the benefits of same-day teeth?
The following are a few benefits of getting same-day teeth at Dental Implants Clinic Turkey.
- A new smile in one day
In most cases, patients get a full set of teeth in one dental visit, eliminating the need for multiple dental visits within the healing period.
- Discreetly replaces missing teeth
Same-day teeth look like natural teeth, so people won’t notice you replaced your teeth. The dentist will work closely with you to understand your needs and choose a dental restoration that matches your teeth size and shape. This means you don’t have to be self-conscious about your smile.
- Last as long as the natural teeth
Same-day teeth offer a long-lasting solution for people with missing teeth. The implants can last as long as your natural teeth with proper care. They also reduce bone shrinkage and loss, giving aesthetic benefits and support to the jawbone.
- Prevents eating and speaking difficulties
People with missing teeth cannot speak and eat properly, but replacing your teeth with dental implants prevents these issues as the implants serve the same function as your teeth.
Same-day teeth procedure
The same-day teeth procedure involves four steps. They include:
- Consultation and treatment
You will have a consultation with our dentist to discuss possible treatment options to make an informed decision. The dentist will show you models of bridge work placed on implants, so you know what to expect.
- Assessment and scans
The dentist will check if you are a suitable candidate for same-day teeth. The check will involve a detailed assessment of your mouth, including 3D scans and x-rays to determine the extent of bone loss.
For a successful treatment, your dentist will need to ensure you have sufficient jaw bone to hold the implants.
If your assessments show you are a good candidate for the procedure, the dentist will create a treatment plan and work you through it. The plan will involve the required number of appointments, the duration of treatment and its cost.
- Fitting the implants
In a same-day teeth procedure, your dentist can fit the implants and teeth in one appointment, but the planning and preparation are before your appointment. You may have to visit the dentist for several appointments before the surgery.
On the day of your surgery, the dentist will fit your implants and temporary dental restoration, and you will get a permanent set of teeth after a few months.
- Follow-up and aftercare
After your new smile fitting, taking proper care of your teeth is important. You need regular visits to the dentist for check-ups and professional cleanings. Your dentist will create a detailed aftercare plan to preserve your implants and the replacement teeth. A good aftercare routine is important for your implants to remain healthy.
