The Teeth-in-a-Day concept involves having a complete set of new teeth that are attached to dental implants immediately after the implants are placed into the mouth. These new teeth do not come out of the mouth like a typical set of dentures. These implant teeth are firmly secured to the dental implants. Sometimes, "Teeth-in-a-Day" are also known by the name All on 4 as is often promoted by the implant company Nobel Biocare.
While some Austin dental offices tout that they can give you new implant teeth in one day, there are a few little details (actually very big details) that they are leaving out. First of all, in order to have teeth permanently attached to dental implants in a single day as in the Teeth-in-a-Day concept, you must have at least 4 implants placed in the jaw that is being worked on. The 4 implants are securely attached to the new teeth which help to stabilize the implants in their early healing phase.
If you can get an entire set of new teeth in a single day, can you get a single new implant tooth in only one visit? No, you cannot have a new tooth permanently attached to a single implant on the day of implant treatment. Why not you ask? Unlike the All on Four or Teeth-in-a-Day treatments which use a dental prosthesis to stabilize the newly placed implants, a single implant does not have the stability offered by the 4 implant concept. If you place a tooth on a single implant right away, this lack of stabilization on the single implant significantly increases the risk of failure.
The All on 4 or Teeth-in-a-Day treatment concept is a great treatment option for those who qualify. The treatment is a reality. If you are already missing teeth, we can replace them with permanently fixed implant teeth in a single day. If you currently have loose dentures, we can get you eating with solid implant supported teeth in one day! If you have many bad or failing teeth, we can remove them and replace them with permanently fixed implant teeth in a single day.
