It can take months to get dental implants, but you may not have to wait that long if you’re a candidate for a same-day smile in Wayne. Our dentists have the expertise to attach a whole arch of replacement teeth to just a few implants, allowing you to receive a beautiful and functional smile in just one visit to our office. You can avoid the healing period of up to six months that is sometimes needed between implant placement and restoration.Doctor Brian Handel on Same Day Smiles Read Transcript
Well, same-day smile can range pretty dramatically from bonding to enhance a smile, change the shape, to restoring someone's mouth where their bite is comfortable again and they can chew, and relieving TMJ pain because their bite was off. So it can range from color change to overall aesthetics or function.
Same-day smiles for us is typically a cosmetic procedure, where a patient comes in, they hate the shapes, sizes, or colors of their teeth. And in one day, we can change that to their liking.
The main thing we use to help prepare us and a patient for any change in their smile is photography. We do a lot of photography before and after to make sure the patient's going to get what they expect. So we can take a picture, we can image that picture and show the patient what we think they're saying. And we don't move forward until we're in total agreement.
If we do same-day smiles, usually it's really not invasive. It's painless. Most of the time we do that treatment, we don't have to numb a patient, and they're completely comfortable. So it's really nice for the patient that way.
Getting a teeth-in-one-day procedure is:
- Quicker – Fewer implants will be placed to support your replacement teeth, so the process takes less time.
- More Comfortable – The procedure is less invasive than other implant treatments. You’ll likely only need local anesthesia, though of course you can also receive dental sedation if you’d like.
- Less Costly – Since fewer dental implants are used for this full-mouth reconstruction, you’ll pay less.
To see if you can receive teeth-in-one-day, call 610-227-6143 to schedule a consultation with one of our implant dentists.
Receive Replacement Teeth You Can Use Right Away
Our dentists will likely use a treatment called All-on-4®, using just four implants to support your new smile, or a similar procedure called All-on-6. They’ll use our cone beam CT scan, which gives us a detailed 3D view of your mouth’s infrastructure. This enables them to determine how many implants are needed and find the strongest areas of your jaw to support them.
You’ll receive a temporary restoration, so you never need to be without teeth during your healing period. Once your jaw fuses to your new implants, in a process called osseointegration, you’ll return to our office to receive your final restoration. You’ll be able to smile freely and enjoy full oral functionality while your implants heal! You can receive the treatment in your upper jaw, your lower jaw, or both jaws.
