Teeth in a Day is a proven system that uses high-quality dental implants to give patients stable, permanent replacement teeth in a single day. We surgically place four dental implants in the jawbone and attache custom-made replacement teeth to restore smiles, typically with no bone grafting needed. The dental implants work together to immediately support chewing forces, even restoring 95% of your bite force, so you don’t have to wait for your new smile like you would with conventional implant surgery. A titanium support bar concealed inside your prosthetic provides maximum strength and stability to hold teeth securely in place.
What are Teeth in a Day?
Teeth in a day are a type of dental implant treatment called the all-on-4 technique. It was developed by Portuguese dentist Dr. Palo Malo as an alternative to much more involved and expensive bone grafting for patients who have some bone loss or low bone density.
Using this technique, just four dental implants placed in the front part of the jawbone are angled to provide support to an entire arch of prosthetic teeth.
Pros and Cons of Teeth in a Day
Because it doesn’t involve bone grafting, the teeth in a day technique is less expensive, requires much less recovery time, and can provide a solution for some people who might not otherwise be able to receive the benefits of dental implants.
The disadvantages are that this procedure won’t prevent continued bone loss in the back part of the jawbone, because the implants are up front. In addition, if one implant fails, all four implants will have to be replaced. And finally, not everyone is a candidate for this treatment option.
