Same Day Teeth – a New Option For Replacing Missing Teeth?

A rapidly growing area in dentistry is the provision Of new teeth in a day. Typically the process works like this:

  1. You go to the dentist for an assessment of your suitability, if you are suitable treatment plan was devised, records taken, planning undertaken and dates booked.
  2. On the agreed date you arrive at the dental practice and have any necessary teeth extracted.
  3. Dental implants are then placed.
  4. New teeth are constructed supported by these dental implants on the same day.
  5. You leave, go back home and begin to heal.

The process is particularly good for people that need large scale dental extractions in one go, some people even have all of their teeth removed (so long as this is clinically necessary) and replace with dental implants.

Patients will often have Decayed, diseased or dysfunctional teeth which need to be removed. As the teeth removed a dental implant is placed directly into the socket, over which they knew teeth are supported.

Vera’s Experience of Treatment.

For many years I had been on course for losing my upper teeth due to gum disease which seemed like a death sentence, especially as my job as a receptionist was frontline greeting of the general public.

In January of 2013 the inevitable happened and I had to lose them and resort to a full upper denture.

Although the denture was very good aesthetically my confidence was very low, to the extent I didn’t want my husband to see when they had to be removed to be cleaned and being very conscious when eating out.

I had thought about having an implant removable denture which resulted in me going to see Anthony Bendkowski , Oral Surgeon, at The Complete Implantology Clinic for a consultation.  This turned out to be the best thing I could have done.  From the moment I arrived the staff made me feel so relaxed and more like an old friend than a patient.

The consultation itself was thorough, concise and in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.  I was not rushed at all and was given plenty of time to ask questions or voice any concerns I had.  Everything was explained in full detail including pictures and drawings, plus no false promises were made.  I knew exactly what would be happening and what could happen should things not go to plan.  At this consultation the all Teeth in a Day fixed restoration was suggested and explained in full detail. This procedure meant I would have a full upper permanent restoration all in one day. The four implants would be placed and the restoration attached which meant I would leave with a fixed smile (not literally!).  This certainly appealed to me and I couldn’t wait to get started.  The thought of not having to remove the teeth was like a dream – no more embarrassing moments.  This would be the first stage and after approximately 3 months the definitive restoratation would be fitted after the implants had healed.

The whole procedure needed detailed planning and organisation between everyone that would be involved.  I was kept informed at every stage which meant I felt I was in control of my own treatment.  On the second consultation Anthony went over the procedure again and checked that I was still happy to go ahead which was so reassuring that I wasn’t being pressured into anything.  The next step was the taking of impressions and measurements plus photographs.  Again all of this was done in a relaxed yet professional atmosphere where at no time did I feel self conscious about my situation.

The next step was the day of the surgery.  Of course I was apprehensive as anyone would be having surgery but I need not have worried.  This first stage having the implants and the restoration placed was absolutely pain free and I would have no hesitation in having this done again.  The results of the Teeth in a Day were amazing as all my family friends and colleagues will testify.  The only way I can describe it is like having your own teeth back again.

I would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved for making this a real life changing experience and one I can smile about with confidence.  I can honestly say it is the best decision I have ever made.
