Too many people who have conventional dentures don’t like to wear them because they don’t stay in place. Same-day fixed teeth offer a way to keep dentures secure and allow you to go about your daily life with confidence.
Dentures supported by implants have been successful for hundreds of thousands of people. The number of patients is growing rapidly due to their effectiveness, long-term durability and the high success rate of dental implants.
Millions of people around the world are missing enough teeth to require the use of a denture. Many people struggle with loose or poorly fitted dentures. If you have this problem, you already know the embarrassment of slipping dentures, not being able to eat the foods you love, and the problems with messy denture adhesives. Ask your dentist how to restore and maintain your natural smile with Same-day fixed teeth.
During the procedure, 4 to 6 implants are placed into the jaw with abutment posts. Your denture is then attached to the abutments. The Same-day fixed teeth procedure typically can be completed in one day and can be done under local anaesthesia. Discomfort from Same-day fixed teeth is usually minor and temporary. Your dentist may prescribe pain relievers for you as needed. A soft diet may be required during the initial healing phase.
How is the procedure performed?
You will be asked to sit in the exam chair or lie down on the exam table, depending on the type of cone beam CT scanner being used. Your dentist or oral surgeon will position you so that the area of interest is centred in the beam. You will be asked to remain very still while the X-ray source and detector revolve around you for a 360-degree rotation or less. This typically can take between 20 to 40 seconds for a complete volume, also called a full mouth X-ray, in which the entire mouth and dental structures are imaged, and less than 10 seconds for a regional scan that focuses on a specific area of the maxilla or mandible.
What will I experience during and after the procedure?
You will not experience any pain during a cone beam CT exam, and you will be able to return to your normal activities once the exam is complete.
Who interprets the results and how do I get them?
Your dentist, oral surgeon or radiologist will analyse the images. They may discuss the results with you directly or communicate the results to your referring physician or dentist.
Why same-day teeth?
After the procedure, the use of a medicated mouthwash is often recommended for two weeks. You will not brush or use a water pick during that time. After two weeks, you can start using a water pick at a slow speed. Follow your doctor’s instructions and maintain your dental hygiene to ensure the long-term success of your treatment.
Are you a candidate?
Every patient is different and patient results may vary. Only a trained clinician can choose the required treatment plan for you. Please ask your doctor to explain the benefits and risks to determine if a Same-day fixed teeth treatment is right for you.Back to Dental Implants
