Teeth in a Day in Manchester
For patients who are missing or require removal of all of their upper or lower teeth, Teeth in a Day can provide a comprehensive solution. We understand how awkward it can be to have all of your teeth removed and then to be told that you have to wait weeks - or even months - for your permanent dentures to be ready. With the Teeth in a Day solution, you won’t have to worry about walking around without teeth. Healthy patients who invest in this alternative solution often have great success.
The “Teeth in a Day” procedure allows patients to receive a complete set of implants on the upper or lower jaw. On the day of your procedure, Dr. Abel will surgically place a minimum of four dental implants per jaw. Though the final teeth won’t be attached until the implants have fully healed, you will leave our office with a temporary set that same day.
For a typical procedure, dental implants are placed in the morning, and temporary teeth are set in the afternoon. It is a full day procedure, but the benefits are many:
- Shorter overall treatment time
- Reduced number of surgeries
- Provides a fixed set of teeth (not removable like dentures)
If this is something you may be interested in, talk with your dentist about it. Once your dentist refers you to Dr. Abel, we can then move forward with the necessary x-rays and 3D imaging to get started.
Please note that for the “Teeth in a Day” technique any teeth remaining, in the jaw where the dental implants will be placed, will be removed on the same day as the dental implant surgery.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do Teeth in a Day implants last?
The longevity of your dental implants is often directly impacted by how well they are cared for. Those who maintain good dental hygiene, thoroughly brushing and flossing daily, as well as continuing regular visits to the dentist, will have implants that last the longest.
How long does it take for dental implants to be fully fused with the bone?
While it varies from person to person, it often takes several months before the implants are securely fused with the jaw bone. On average, this process takes about 3-6 months.
Does it ever take longer than a day for Teeth in a Day?
Generally, most patients do well with Teeth in a Day and all is completed as expected - in a single day. Although, occasionally situations arise that extend this time frame. These most commonly involve patients whose jaw bone is not dense enough to hold their implants, and which requires initial bone augmentation before proceeding with implants.
Are there follow-up visits necessary after the procedure?
Yes. Most often we will see you about a week after the Teeth in a Day procedure and then again a few months later. It is normal for patients to have follow-up visits every so often for either their dentist or us to be able to check the status of their implants - in order to prepare for the final teeth to be added. We are patient-focused and personalize our treatment, so we will discuss follow-up appointments as they relate to you when you come in for your procedure.
