Tooth loss can totally change your life, especially if you have to wait months to have your teeth restored. With teeth in a day, you can cut down that time considerably. Modern advancements in teeth replacement surgery make it possible to restore your smile with implants in a single day instead of waiting months to complete your treatment. Maegan Elam, DDS & Associates, offers same-day teeth implants to patients in Bedford, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Same-day teeth implants work best when restoring an entire arch or all of your teeth using all-on-four or all-on-six implants. In traditional implant treatment, patients wait months for their implant to integrate into their bone system before receiving a supportive abutment or restoration to replace lost teeth. With teeth in a day, there’s no waiting period between implant placement and getting new teeth.
Dr. Maegan Elam works closely with an experienced dental surgeon for same-day teeth replacement surgery. The process starts with a consultation to determine if you’re a good candidate for this treatment. We’ll take X-rays of your mouth to confirm you have ample bone density to support implants and verify your gums are healthy enough for this treatment. If so, we’ll outline a treatment plan and schedule an appointment at the surgeon’s office for surgery.
On the date of your surgery, your dental surgeon will place four or six implants strategically in your mouth to support your new teeth. These implants are placed at an angle within your jaw where your bone is thickest. Once the implants are in place, we’ll attach an arch of fully functional temporary teeth for you until the customized permanent teeth can be made. Your smile is restored in one day rather than waiting months to receive new teeth.
Once your permanent restorations are ready, we’ll schedule a follow-up visit to remove your temporary prosthetics and install your permanent replacement teeth.
