Restoring the Health and Aesthetics of Your Teeth with Same Day Teeth®
Same Day Teeth® is the state-of-the-art protocol for dental implants that gives patients a new smile in just one visit. In this blog post, we’ll look at just how Same Day Teeth® gives patients a new smile in just one visit.
With Same Day Teeth®, we are proud to give patients the same great results as we do with traditional dental implants [link to traditional dental implants page] but without the waiting for the new teeth to be inserted in the implant and the multiple procedures required.
First, we start off with some of the most advanced state-of-the-art technology available for planning dental implant surgeries. We complete a full imaging workup using a 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan. This allows us to evaluate the patient’s bite and plan the optimal placement location for the dental implants with precision. We use surgical planning software along with these images to develop a treatment strategy which is used as a guide throughout the procedure. For the dental implant surgery, we use the nSequence® proprietary protocol to find the optimal placement locations for the dental implants.
Then the restorations, or prosthetics, are placed. With Same Day Teeth®, these are created by our prosthodontist, Dr. Philip J. Hedger. We place a bar-supported, immediate-load, full-arch restoration during the same visit as the dental implant surgery. Our custom-designed prosthetics are milled from a solid block of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) using impressions and computer images of your bite. This material is non-toxic and highly biocompatible. PMMA is very strong and durable and is color-matched to the patient’s natural teeth for a seamless integration into the smile. With Same Day Teeth®, we provide immediate enhancement to the function and aesthetics of the bite.
