Teeth in a Day
Do you need new teeth but do not want to wait months to get them? If you wear dentures, have missing teeth, or teeth that cannot be saved, our office is now offering a revolutionary, cutting-edge solution to the long waits and painful side effects of traditional teeth replacement. Teeth-in-an-Hour ™ will give you complete dental implants or teeth replacements in about an hour. Typically those in need of teeth replacement would have multiple, often painful surgeries over many months to get what can now be done in a fraction of that time.
Using the Teeth-in-an-Hour procedure, patients don’t have to wait for bone in the jaw to heal around the implant site before placing the crowns (visible teeth replacements). Instead, the implants fit snugly into the sites created for them, and you can use your new teeth immediately.
Teeth-in-an-Hour may be right for you if you:
- Have dentures
- Have missing teeth
- Have teeth that cannot be saved
How To Prepare
Before your Teeth-in-an-Hour, an evaluation and overview with Dr. Kim will be discussed to prepare for the procedure…
- A comprehensive dental exam will be done including dental X-rays taken and models made of your teeth and mouth. You also may need a special type of computed tomography (CT) scan, that will allow the dentist to accurately measure the height and width of your existing bone to evaluate the health of your teeth and jaw bone.
- Treatment plan. 212 Smiling will tailor a treatment plan to account all factors of the procedure. If the surgery is invasive we will take into account the factors and the procedure with a timely thought out plan. This will include a walkthrough of the procedure, a step by sept treatment guide and a follow up an appointment if needed.
Make sure to tell your doctor about any medical conditions and any medications you take, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs and supplements. If you have heart conditions or orthopedic implants, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics before surgery to help prevent infection.
Anesthesia may be used to control the pain during your procedure. The 212 Smiling team will instruct you about eating and drinking before surgery, depending on the type of anesthesia. If general anesthesia is used, someone will have to assist you home after surgery and expect to rest for the day.
What Can You Expect
Teeth-in-an-Hour will give you complete dental implants or teeth replacements in about an hour. With teeth in a day, bone-grafting is not required, so expect a more relaxing procedure. Typically those in need of teeth replacement would have multiple, often painful surgeries over many months to get what can now be done in a fraction of that time. Teeth-in-an-Hour will look something like this:
- 3D CT scan and impressions will be taken to provide a detailed and accurate plan
- We will discuss the proper smile that fits your face
- During surgery, we will remove any diseased teeth, place the implants, and attach temporary naturally-looking teeth
- After the procedure, the next 3-6 month, your implants will begin to heal. We will have to do some adjusting to the bite and appearance for the perfect fit
- Once the implants are fully healed we will start the process of making your final implants which may take up to 4-5 appointments depending on the adjustments you would like to make to your temporary teeth.
After The Procedure
After your Teeth-in-an-Hour procedure, you may experience some of the typical discomforts associated with any type of dental procedure, such as:
- Minor bleeding
- Pain or discomfort
If swelling, discomfort or any other problem gets worse after surgery, contact your dentist as you may need pain medications or antibiotics. You may need to eat soft foods while the procedure site heals. Typically, your dental surgeon or dentist will use stitches, if invasive, that dissolve on their own, but if not your dental surgeon or dentist will have to remove them.
The first thing to keep in mind is that Teeth-in-an-Hour cost will vary depending on the range of reconstruction needed, and the complications involved with the individual case. The more implants needed, the more the cost. Each Teeth-in-an-Hour implant tends to cost between $2000-3000, making a single tooth or a full mouth reconstruction a potentially daunting financial investment.
That said, for patients that must live with dentures, it can be an attractive alternative. Dentures can be unreliable, ill-fitting, and detrimental to speech or other everyday activities. Other replacement teeth options like bridges or traditional dental implants are lengthy, invasive, and painful procedures. Teeth-in-an-Hour’s cost is reflective of its sophisticated technology and beautiful, pain-free results, and is well worth considering if you’re looking for a smile upgrade.
