What is Teeth-in-a-Day?

Definition and Principle

Teeth-in-a-Day, also known as express dental implants or immediate dental restoration, is an innovative technique that allows for the placement of dental implants and the creation of a temporary fixed bridge during the same session. Thanks to technological advancements in the field of dentistry, it is now possible to enjoy a radiant smile and optimal chewing function in record time.

Advantages of Teeth-in-a-Day

Teeth-in-a-Day offers several benefits for patients:

1. Time-saving

The implant placement and temporary dental restoration are performed during a single appointment, thus optimizing the time spent at the dentist and limiting the number of sessions.

2. Aesthetics and Comfort

With this technique, patients quickly regain a natural and harmonious smile, as well as improved comfort in their daily lives.

3. Bone Preservation

Teeth-in-a-Day promotes the preservation of jawbone mass by stimulating bone regeneration around the implant.


The Candidate Selection Process for Teeth-in-a-Day

Although Teeth-in-a-Day offers many advantages, it should be noted that this procedure is not suitable for all patients. Dr. Shaw follows a rigorous selection process to evaluate each case individually and determine if Teeth-in-a-Day is the appropriate solution.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for Teeth-in-a-Day, the patient must:

  • Have good overall oral health.
  • Have sufficient bone quantity and quality to support dental implants.
  • Not present certain medical contraindications

Preliminary Consultation and Examination

In order to determine if a patient is a good candidate for Teeth-in-a-Day, Dr. Shaw conducts a consultation and thorough examination, including:

  • A complete clinical examination of the mouth and teeth.
  • A radiographic assessment that may include 3D imaging (cone beam scanner) to evaluate the quantity and quality of the jawbone.
  • A discussion of the patient's expectations and treatment goals.

Based on the results of this examination, Dr. Shaw may recommend Teeth-in-a-Day or propose a more suitable alternative to meet the patient's needs.


The Teeth-in-a-Day Procedure

The Teeth-in-a-Day procedure takes place in several key steps:

1. Anesthesia

The patient receives local anesthesia to ensure optimal comfort during the intervention.

2. Tooth Extraction (if necessary)

Damaged or compromised teeth are extracted to prepare for implant placement.

3. Implant Placement

Dental implants are precisely inserted into the jawbone using a customized surgical guide.

4. Temporary Fixed Bridge Placement

A temporary fixed bridge is created and adjusted on the implants, allowing the patient to immediately regain chewing function and an aesthetic smile.

5. Postoperative Follow-up

Follow-up appointments are scheduled to ensure optimal healing and verify implant integration.
