Teeth in a Day Candidates
Many people have heard about the benefits that dental implants can provide. Dental implants are widely known to be the most durable and comfortable solutions for lost or severely damaged teeth. Unfortunately, the one downside of traditional dental implant treatment is that it requires a lengthy treatment timeline. Patients can expect to wait many months before their smile is restored.
Teeth in a Day allow patients to enjoy a beautifully restored smile in a single day. This process involves dental implant placement, so patients get fast results without compromising the strength, security, or comfort of traditional implants.
At Smiles for Life, our dental team is happy to offer this advanced treatment to any of our Harrisonburg, VA patients who are considered ideal Teeth in a Day candidates.
Patients with Tooth Loss or Extensive Dental Damage
Teeth in a Day treatment is meant to address tooth loss or severe dental damage that has affected a set of adjacent teeth. At Smiles for Life, we fit Teeth in a Day implants with a zirconia bridge. The zirconia bridge can be fabricated to replace up to an entire row of teeth, so whether patients have lost just a few teeth, or many, they are likely candidates for Teeth in a Day.
Patients with Sufficient Bone Density
Although Teeth in a Day offers faster results than traditional dental implant treatment, it still involves the placement of implants, which are small titanium screws.
We can support a full zirconia bridge with just five dental implants (or six, if the bridge will be placed on the upper arch). It is important that patients have sufficient bone density to support the placement of these implants, and also enough healthy bone tissues so that the implants can fuse with the jawbone.
If our Harrisonburg patients have already suffered from bone degeneration, they may need to consider a bone graft before they can proceed with Teeth in a Day treatment.
Patients with Good Oral Health
Good oral health is vital to the ultimate success of dental implant treatment. Oral tissues need to be healthy to heal properly after dental implant treatment. This allows the implants to fuse with the jaw.
If a patient is suffering from oral health problems, such as decay or infection, they will need to be addressed before we can consider Teeth in a Day treatment.
Patients Looking for Fast Results
What really sets Teeth in a Day apart from other restorative dentistry treatments is how quickly patients get to enjoy their results. On the same day that dental implants are placed, we put in temporary restorations that are strong and fully-functional. These restorations allow patients to eat, chew, speak, and smile with confidence while they wait for their final zirconia bridge to be complete. For our Harrisonburg patients who want fast results, there is no better option than Teeth in a Day.
If you have suffered from tooth loss and are looking for a way to quickly restore the function and beauty of your smile, Teeth in a Day may be the ideal solution.
