Teeth in a day is a revolutionary procedure to give you a great set of fixed teeth with dental implants all within one day. This could be ideal for you if:
- -> you wear dentures and are tired of them moving when you eat or talk
- -> you are missing quite a few teeth and want to improve your smile
- -> your teeth are loose and you suffer from advanced gum disease
The teeth in a day procedure describes the placement of dental implants in your jaw together with placing a set of fixed teeth on the dental implants at the same visit.
What is the Teeth In A Day process?
There is quite a lot of planning required before this can be done and of course the replacement teeth need to be constructed before hand. Usually we will take x-rays of your jaw and some times we will take a 3-dimensional image of your jaw to acurately assess the thickness of your jaw bone.The actual placement of the implants and of the fixed teeth can usually be done on the same day. We will aim to place between 4 to 6 dental implants per jaw as this will ensure that there is enough support to hold the fixed teeth in place. The minimum number of dental implants we like to place is 4 as research shows that this is the minimum number of dental implants required to give a predictable long term result. This procedure is commonly known as the All on 4 dental implants technique and was pioneered by Dr Paul Malo. Our dental implant surgeon, Dr. Omar Iqbal, has trained with Paulo Malo in the Malo clinic in Lisbon where he learned the best ways to carry out the all on 4 technique dental implants technique.
