06 Aug Teeth in a Day Will Have You Smiling Again in No Time
An incomplete smile takes a toll on our quality of life, self-esteem, and oral health. If you have suffered with total tooth loss, it is important to know there is hope. Teeth in a Day is a great option for meeting the needs of edentulous patients.
Teeth in a Day, also known as All-on-4, can give you a reason to smile again. This tooth replacement option restores your appearance with beautiful sets of custom-made dentures anchored to dental implants. With Teeth in a Day, you can enjoy your favorite foods while feeling confident to smile amongst your coworkers, family, and friends.
How Teeth in a Day Works
All-on-4 is a method of addressing total tooth loss with full dentures and dental implants. Dentures are made from very lifelike materials, including porcelain – which perfectly resembles the appearance and texture of biological teeth. These dentures are then attached to dental implants, which replace missing tooth structure beneath the gums.
Patients can have both their dental implants embedded and temporary prosthetic teeth attached in one appointment. This means that you will leave our practice with fully-functional teeth. After your permanent dentures are ready, you will visit our office and our team will attach your dentures to abutments on your dental implants.
Benefits of All-on-4
Anchoring prosthetics to dental implants will improve oral function. Dental implants provide additional stability and support beneath the surface of the gums so that patients can enjoy diverse types of food.
Beyond improving oral function, Teeth in a Day helps keep vital oral tissue intact after tooth loss. Bone atrophy is a common side effect of losing teeth. Since dental implants are embedded into the jawbone, they will help keep bone healthy and stimulated. Maintaining bone mass is important for comfortable oral function and enjoying a youthful appearance.
Teeth in a Day are low maintenance. They are cared for similarly to natural teeth. There is no need for messy adhesives and overnight soaking.
