Many of us lead busy lives. Therefore, having to replace missing teeth often must be done quickly and with discretion. You may be the right candidate for this treatment if you follow a schedule that does not leave much room for dental treatments or related activities.
Are You a Good Candidate for Getting Teeth in a Day?
If you do not want to go to work with missing teeth, you are the right candidate for teeth in a day. In many cases, we can place implants and restorations in one day, so you can keep smiling. Everything is done quickly and conveniently. In most “teeth-in-a-day” scenarios, the teeth refer to full arch restorations using implants. Therefore, all the damaged teeth are removed and replaced with implants, and temporary restorations are placed in a single visit. After the implants have healed, the permanent teeth are placed. It usually takes about six months for a titanium implant to fuse with the bone. You can also have an implant performed in 1 day to replace a single tooth.

Now a standard for replacing teeth, implant placements allow you to enjoy the same type of confidence as you do with natural teeth. The implant itself is an artificial root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. After the implant is placed, a natural-looking restoration, such as a crown or bridge, is placed. You should consider the teeth-in-a-day implant procedure if you have decayed teeth or have experienced long-term dental health problems. According to experts at the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), dental implants are the best tooth-replacement option available today, as they assist in preserving the natural jawbone and prevent gum shrinkage or bone resorption.
