Patients who need a full arch replacement because of total tooth loss on the upper or lower jaw have traditionally had one path to them — dentures. Many patients find that even acting as fast as possible, it still takes a few weeks to go from an initial appointment to fully fitted dentures. Even those who use full arch dental implants sometimes have a wait while the teeth are being manufactured. That’s what makes Teeth In a Day such a revolutionary technology.
Today’s small-scale maker technologies and computer control systems are helping healthcare professionals in many disciplines. Your dentist is no exception. With this technology, Dr. HagShenas is able to produce a full set of replacement teeth at the same time the dental implants are installed, leaving patients with both the implants and the dentures they support when they leave their appointment.
This procedure has a fast recovery time, but there is still a window of several days to two weeks where an aftercare routine will need to be followed. Individual recovery times vary, and patients report even higher satisfaction with the same-day solution than they did with other generations of full arch dental implants.
If you’re wondering what makes implant supported dentures a little better than traditional dentures, it’s not hard to figure out.
