What Is Teeth in a Day?
With traditional dental implant treatment, it takes several months (up to a year) for the implant post to successfully fuse with the jawbone, which allows it to after which it serves as a stable foundation to the replacement teeth (either a dental crown, bridge or denture) that will eventually be placed on top.
The Teeth in a Day system, also known as immediate load implants, is more time-effective than traditional treatment, as the implant posts and replacement teeth are placed on the same day. Thanks to the use of advanced computer imaging technology, the implants fit precisely into place, minimizing healing time. The replacement teeth are placed on top, allowing you to enjoy a strong and natural-looking smile immediately.
Teeth in a Day can be used to replace one tooth, several teeth or a full arch of missing teeth. As little as four implant posts may be placed to support a full arch of replacement teeth. With traditional implant placement, as many as eight implants may be used to support a full arch of teeth. Because fewer implant posts are typically used with Teeth in a Day, the system involves less treatment time and healing, and is more cost effective than traditional implant placement.

Planning and Placing Teeth in a Day
Successful Teeth in a Day treatment requires careful planning. Our dentists utilize advanced 3D computer imaging technology and simulation software to create a highly personalized treatment plan for your specific dental needs. During your initial consultation, our dentists will create a detailed 3D image of your mouth and jaw so they can “virtually” place the implant(s) before treatment. Not only does this allow our dentists to plan a very safe and precise treatment, it also allows you to visualize your results before even having the procedure.
During the procedure, our dentists will create a small incision in your gums to place the implant. Once the implant is in place, an abutment will be inserted on top of it along with the dental restoration. Your dental restoration will be made using high-quality materials and crafted to look natural and attractive.
Teeth in a Day recovery is typically shorter than recovery from traditional implant placement. Minor discomfort can be managed with prescription medication. Our team will provide you with a detailed list for you to follow during your recovery.
