We offer something called teeth in a day. What that is is, let's say you have teeth and they're broken down. What we do is we offer a dental bridge that's attached to implants where when you leave the office, you have teeth and they're attached. You don't have to worry about teeth moving, getting used to them, sore spots, all that kind of stuff, and so what it does is it really allows you to heal better as well. The denture's not going to move, and it allows the tissues to breathe and really heal well.
It’s always important to repair damaged teeth. At our Jeffersonville, Indiana dentist office, we work hard to fix dental problems and save teeth. But in the end, what matters most is you. If your teeth are damaged beyond repair or have fallen out, you need replacements. While there are several tooth replacement options, most people usually have to wait weeks or even months for their new teeth, depending on their situation. What do you do in the meantime? That’s where Teeth in a DayTM comes in handy. You can get implants placed by our partner surgeon and replacement teeth from Dr. Kirchner, all in one day.
Teeth In A Day™ Will Restore Your Smile
This treatment gets you a full arch of replacement teeth (all of the teeth on the bottom or top of your mouth) in literally one day. As with dentures or All-on-4® implants, you’ll get a full arch of natural-looking teeth set in a gum-colored base. These are held in place using dental implants but are temporary. They only stay in until your All-on-4 arch or similar restoration is ready. You will start your day with needing teeth, and by the day’s end, you’ll have them.
More Than Traditional Dental Implants
With regular implants, you usually have to wait for the bone to completely fuse with the implanted root. That’s because putting pressure on the implant before it is ready can cause the implant to move and fail. It can even break part of your jawbone. With Teeth in a Day, you do not need to wait. On the same day your implants are placed, you’ll get a full arch of temporary replacement teeth. In fact, most patients can start eating with them right away. It will take 4-6 months before you are ready for an All-on-4 or similar permanent solution.
The Teeth in a Day Process
First, Jeffersonville, Indiana dentist Dr. Kirchner will examine your teeth, gums, and bone tissue to make sure Teeth in a Day is right for you. Then he will coordinate the placement surgery with a local oral surgeon. This ensures your implants will be held securely and that the procedure can be done quickly. Once the surgery is complete, Dr. Kirchner will connect a temporary set of replacement teeth to the implants. These will stay put until Dr. Kirchner removes them. Your real replacement teeth are then made to order. They will look like healthy, white versions of your real teeth. Many patients choose All-on-4 restorations for this procedure. When your implants are fully healed in about 4-6 months, you’ll come back to our Jeffersonville, IN dental clinic to have the temporaries removed and these secured. In the end, you’ll have great-looking teeth that are stable in your mouth.
