It involves attaching a full arch of prosthetic teeth to 4 or 6 dental implants, providing a permanent alternative to dentures.
Placing implants in the jaw at certain angles allows your dentist to support an entire bridge of beautiful, high-quality replacement teeth with a small number of implants, rather than using a single implant for each tooth.
Patients who have been turned down for dental implants in the past may be suitable candidates for Same-Day Teeth because these implants are placed toward the front of the mouth in denser bone.
You can receive your new teeth on the same day as your initial implant fitting. Once your implants have been placed, your dentist will attach a provisional bridge, restoring your smile and chewing functionality.
Several months later, once your implants have fully healed, you will attend a follow-up appointment to have your temporary bridge swapped out for a permanent one.
