Tooth loss is common, but that doesn’t make it any easier to cope with and especially when you are missing multiple teeth or an entire arch of teeth. While solutions like partial or complete dentures will work well for some, other people can struggle. If the idea of wearing dentures in Newcastle is unappealing, you might want to consider dental implants and specifically Teeth in a Day.
What is Teeth in a Day?
Teeth in a Day is an innovative procedure using tried and tested techniques to restore an entire arch of teeth in a single day. You might also hear this procedure called All on Four because some dental offices will only use four dental implants to restore an entire arch. While this may be possible, we prefer to take a more customized approach to every treatment and will recommend the number of dental implants we know from experience will ensure the best long-term outcome.
The dental implants are surgically inserted into your jawbone into positions predetermined by your treatment plan, and a temporary arch of teeth is fitted soon after. These temporary teeth remain in place for several months while your implants heal and fuse with your jawbone. Once this process is complete, the temporary bridge is replaced with your permanent bridge made from a strong, durable zirconia material. Your zirconia bridge will look and feel as natural as possible, and you should find it easy to eat whatever you wish.
What Are the Advantages of Teeth in a Day?
Because the implants are situated to make optimal use of available bone density and volume, there is often no need for other procedures like bone grafting. If you have enquired about dental implants in Clarington before but were put off by the idea of bone grafting, it’s worth asking about this procedure. Also, dental implants have a protective effect, preventing further bone loss that often occurs when you wear dentures that create unwanted pressure on your gums and jawbone. Then, of course, there are the advantages of having teeth that feel strong and stable and which look beautiful. You needn’t worry about teeth that move around whenever you eat or speak, and there is no need to use denture adhesive. Instead, you can enjoy all the benefits of having teeth that remain firmly in place.
Digital Planning and Placement for the Very Best Treatment Outcome
Our team of experienced dental implant dentists in Courtice use the very latest technology to plan every step of your implant treatment meticulously. Excellent planning ensures you receive the desired treatment outcome. Initially, our implant dentist will need to examine your jawbone. We use a cone beam CT scan to analyze your jawbone more closely.
The CT scan shows the amount of bone and its density, and the location of important structures like nerves that must be avoided during surgery. The information allows our dentists to plan exactly where to place each dental implant, ensuring the implants can be restored to full functionality and with excellent aesthetics. Once the plan is complete, it’s transferred to a surgical guide for use during the actual surgery.
Your dental prosthesis is also made using the very latest computer-aided design. Instead of messy tray impressions, our dental office is equipped with a 3-D digital impression system. This is not only more comfortable but more accurate, too, ensuring your prosthesis is precision-made using the most advanced and long-lasting dental materials.
