TEETH-IN-A-DAY is a proven concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth,fixed with 4-6 dental implants; in one single procedure. This procedure promotes and requires collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the surgeon. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement. This benefits the patient in that there is less postoperative discomfort, less swelling, and less bruising. Patients can often resume their normal activities within the next few days.
This procedure may include traditional or zygoma implants, and the outcomes may include a fixed or removable prosthesis.
Our process for this procedure includes the following:
Implant Consultation: New patients consent to a CBCT scan. This scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jaw, that can then be used in virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are more accurate implant placement, and less chair time for the patient at the surgery office. completes a quick CBCT presentation, as well as utilizes models and video to assist him in educating the patient of their option for the procedure. We also provide education regarding pre and post-op care to fully inform patients of the expectations for this procedure. Our goal is to ensure our patients leave our office feeling comfortable in their understanding of the procedure.
Pre-Operative Appointment: Candidates for this procedure must meet with once prior to their surgery for final photos and discussion of the procedure, to include sedation instructions. At this time, the procedure date is confirmed with all parties.
