Dental Implants: Getting a Full Set of Teeth in a Day
In this video, Dr. Daniel of Daniel Daniel Dentistry explains the two meanings of ‘What is teeth in a day’?
The first meaning refers to getting a temporary crown over your implants on the same day of the surgery. This applies to specific candidates only.
The second meaning of ‘teeth in a day’ refers to getting an all-on-4 procedure done. In this procedure, you receive four implants, after which a denture with holes in it is screwed into those implants. Following this, you need to wait four months to heal while simultaneously wearing the temporary denture.
After the healing period, you will receive a specialised denture reinforced on the inside by screwing it into those implants. This is the traditional procedure for receiving all-on-4 implants.
For ‘teeth in a day’ for all-on-4, however, the four implants are placed on the same day of the surgery. The palate of your healing dentures is cut off, after which holes are punched into it. After that, it’s screwed into those implants in the day procedure.
These temporary teeth are fixed in place for four months, after which you come back for a reinforced, more robust version of implants.
The Dental Implant Procedure
A dental implant or tooth implant is composed of a small screw crafted from titanium placed in the jaw. The implant replaces the root of a missing tooth/teeth and becomes a sound base for the new crown or bridge. After the surgery is over, the prosthetic crown or bridge phase starts, wherein a replacement tooth/teeth in the form of a crown, bridge or denture, is fixed over the implant.
Getting a dental implant is usually a lengthy and thorough process. Firstly, an anchor is implanted into the jawbone to serve as an artificial root. After a few months, when the bone has grown around the anchor, a post is screwed into the anchor.
After this, a new porcelain crown is fixed in its place. This tooth implant functions like a tooth root and is a stable, permanent, and durable solution.
