Hello Houston! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of the Antoine Dental Center.
In the last few weeks, we’ve posted several blogs about our different options for cosmetic dentistry. Today we want to tell you about the ultimate make over for your smile: Teeth-in-a-Day.™
Teeth-in-a-Day™ is more than just cosmetic: this one day procedure gives you an entirely new set of lifelike and completely functional teeth. Teeth-in-a-Day™ is a wonderful choice for patients currently wearing dentures, or patients who are missing a significant portion of their teeth. If you have outdated or ill-fitting dentures, Teeth-in-a-Day™ can help you throw these old things away while having a brand new smile.
Sounds fanatic don’t it? It is! At the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we combine two treatments to provide you with your new set of teeth. First we place dental implants using the All-On-Four or All-On-Six Method, and then we immediately install temporary teeth. This solution will function as well as natural teeth in just a few short hours.
Are you interested in learning more about Teeth-in-a-Day™? Then visit your implant dentist in Houston, TX, for a consultation. We’ll start by determining your overall oral health, and checking the density of your jawbone. You’ll need a dense enough jawbone to support and stabilize between four and six dental implants. If you have any remaining teeth, we’ll need to painlessly extract them to make room for your new teeth.
Teeth-in-a-Day™ is a pain-less process, with absolutely minimal discomfort. Your mouth is numbed with a local anesthetic, ensuring you won’t feel anything during the procedure. We can combine the anesthetic with sedation dentistry, to free you of anxiety or fear. We often use IV sedation with treatment. While being monitored, you’ll drift into a state of complete relaxation and feel as if you’re asleep. When you awaken from this state, you’ll have a brand-new smile!
During the procedure, we place between four and six dental implants into your jawbone. Dental implants are screws made out of biocompatible titanium; once healed a dental implant is a durable replacement for a tooth root. We strategically place these implants to provide maximum support and stability to your new teeth. Generally, two larger implants are placed at an angle for maximum support. In the weeks which follow, your dental implants will fuse into your jawbone.
While you’re dental implants are healing, we will fit you with Teeth-in-a-Day.™ Although this set of fitted false teeth is only worn temporarily, they look completely realistic and function like real teeth. You’ll be able to eat and speak with complete confidence. Never again will you have to worry about dental adhesives or even the prospect of your dentures falling out of your mouth.
After your dental implants have successfully fused into your jawbone, you will return for your pair of permanent dentures. These dentures are completely customized to the specifications you choose, including the color and shape of the teeth. You can have a white and dazzling smile with this procedure. These dentures are incredibly durable and appear just like real teeth, even upon close inspection!
Dental implants and Teeth-in-a-Day™ can greatly enhance your quality of life. You’ll be able to chew all of your favorite foods with the full function of your former god-given teeth. You’ll even be able to eat things like corn on the cob! Plus you experienced the increased self-esteem caused by a beautiful new smile!
