New Teeth In 1 Day
What you can expect:
Once you have decided to move forward with dental implants we will finalize your treatment plan and prepare for your procedure. After the exam is completed you will be ready to schedule the procedure.
It's the Big Day! When you walk out of our office you will have your dental implants in place and you will go home with a temporary set of teeth. Don't worry, the 'temporary' teeth look, feel and function just like natural teeth.
It is important to remember that you will have a recovery period following the implant procedure. Most patients will be on soft food diets for a few weeks or months after the procedure while their mouth tissues heal. During that time we will schedule several check-ups to ensure that everything is healing properly.
After your mouth finishes healing and the new implants are stabilized we will replace your temporary teeth and fit your new permanent teeth!
You will have a dedicated consultant that will greet you and assure your comfort.
- We utilize conscious sedation or you can elect to be asleep for the entire procedure to minimize any discomfort.
- Only surgical and restorative specialists will be working with you to ensure the highest level of expertise in both the surgical and restorative procedure.
On the day of your surgical appointment, your surgical specialists will extract any teeth necessary and place dental implants to support your new complete set of teeth. This will take 2-3 hours. We will be utilizing the advanced 3-D CT images that were taken during your first appointment to guide our surgical placement. This state of the art technology provides our surgeons with guidance that allows them to achieve precision during placement of your dental implants. This precision is one of the reasons that Solana Smiles can create an improved outcome for you. Our entire facility is designed for this procedure.
Once we have completed this portion, you will be able to relax and rest. During this time, we will be working to create your new replacement teeth. You can feel confident knowing that you will leave the center with your new teeth on the day of the procedure. The Prosthodontist is an expert in the “restorative portion” of your procedure and will work with you to make minor adjustments and then present your new smile.
Any discomfort after you return home, such as minor bruising or mild pain, can typically be treated with over the counter medication.
