Our periodontists can completely restore all of your missing teeth when they provide Teeth-In-A-Day through implant-supported dentures. After Dr. Ryan Mendro and Dr. Lucia Roca Mendro place implants, you can simply snap dentures over them for a new, secure smile. Please call Precision Periodontics & Dental Implants if you would like to receive Teeth-In-A-Day in Winter Garden, Florida.
Teeth-In-A-Day can be a great option if you are searching for something more comfortable and permanent than traditional dentures. Given that there are usually 28 functional teeth in your mouth, using individual implants to restore your smile is not only expensive, but impractical. Teeth-In-A-Day is a cost-effective and efficient way to replace your all your teeth. Our periodontists can complete this procedure in a single day!
Teeth-In-A-Day is a prosthetic set of teeth designed to fit on top of dental implants, providing a permanent hold that eliminates the slipping, looseness, and “floating” associated with traditional dentures. Traditional dentures are also designed to sit directly on top of your gums. This not only causes physical discomfort, but can also lead to bone deterioration and complications like clicking sounds or a loose fit. Teeth-In-A-Day can be placed into both upper and lower jaws. Because they are secured by dental implants, they reduce the risk of bone deterioration that can occur if you are missing teeth. These implant-supported teeth are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth, and should receive the same oral hygiene care that you would use for your natural teeth.
Traditionally, dental implants require time to heal and properly bond to your bone. It is important to make sure that the implant posts in your jaw begin to heal and fuse properly with the bone, so that your restoration will be secure and functional, and so that you avoid any potential complications during or after the healing process. This healing process usually takes around three to six months. With Teeth-In-A-Day, this waiting period may be reduced or eliminated entirely. Our periodontists can often replace your missing teeth in just a few short hours with Teeth-In-A-Day!
When you receive your Teeth-In-A-Day treatment, our periodontists will begin by evaluating your current condition, including any existing teeth, whether or not you already wear traditional dentures, how long the teeth of your restoration should be, where the bite should be, and how much lip and facial structure support is needed. A digital X-ray or CT scan will be taken to provide our periodontists with a detailed image of your jawbone, including the position of the teeth to be replaced, to help them determine the ideal location for your implants.
Dr. Ryan Mendro and Dr. Lucia Roca Mendro will then perform an implant placement. All the surgeries necessary for your implant placement can be performed simultaneously, including tooth extraction, bone shaping, and the implant placement itself. The number of implants inserted into your mouth will depend on your specific needs. While our periodontists may place your restoration immediately, you may also be asked to wait while you heal. If you require a period of healing, temporary acrylic replacement teeth will be attached to your implants. These replacement teeth will be removed when you receive the denture portion of your Teeth-In-A-Day restoration.
After your procedure, our periodontists may ask you to remain on a soft food diet while your implants heal. During this time, we will ask you to come back to our office several times for follow-up appointments. During these checkups, our periodontists will examine your implants to ensure that everything is healing correctly and that there are no complications.
Following implant placement and your healing period, your denture will be secured on top of your implants, providing you with a stable, permanent restoration. Our periodontists may even be able to retrofit your existing dentures for implants, rather than fitting you for a completely new appliance. Either way, your new denture will be made of strong, durable materials to provide you with the optimal result for your restoration and your oral health. Your Teeth-In-A-Day will feel and function like your natural teeth, allowing you to smile with renewed confidence.
