At Coastal Jaw Surgery, we’re proud to offer state-of-the-art solutions for tooth loss and other serious dental problems.
In the past, the best option for major tooth loss was a removable dental bridge or denture. Advances in techniques and technology led to the development of dental implants, artificial tooth roots to support dental appliances. We are at the forefront of these advances, providing our patients with a revolutionary procedure called Same Day Teeth®, where we place the implants and new teeth in the same visit. Plainly, this means when you come in to get your dental implants, you leave with a new smile. How can you know if you are a candidate for Same Day Teeth®? The best way to be sure is to visit us for a consultation at one of our locations in Palm Harbor, Trinity, or Spring Hill. Let’s cover the basics of Same Day Teeth® and see who ideal candidates are for treatment.
First off, what is Same Day Teeth®?
Same-Day Teeth® is a procedure that includes dental implants that are immediately loaded into a tooth gap in order to support a dental appliance. The new teeth are supported by these implants. In short, Same Day Teeth® allows people who are missing teeth to have a restored smile in just one dental visit.
How is Same Day Teeth® different from other dental implants procedures?
Traditional dental implants treatment takes months to complete. In this traditional method, the placement of the implants and the placing of your new teeth can occur weeks apart. Same Day Teeth® shortens your waiting time to one day. No oral surgery is required, and the dental implants themselves get anchored securely into place without a protracted recovery period. This is a great option for patients in need of a full or partial denture that’s fixed in place and don’t feel like waiting to have a new smile. For these reasons, Same Day Teeth® is one of our most popular procedures.
I’m missing multiple teeth. Am I a good candidate for Same Day Teeth®?
Yes. Patients who are missing multiple teeth are often ideal candidates.
What should my health level be to get Same Day Teeth®?
You should be in good overall health and have healthy gum and jawbone tissue in the area of the tooth gap. Patients should also be aware of requirements for care post-procedure so that they can reap the long-term benefits of Same Day Teeth® without complications.
What about my jawbone and gum tissue density?
One of the most important things we look for in a Same Day Teeth® candidate is whether they have sufficient jawbone and gum tissue in place. These hard and soft tissues are what anchor the dental implants in place and ensure a stable hold.
Unfortunately, one of the side effects of tooth loss that goes untreated for a long period of time is the loss of bone density and gum tissue. During the consultation process, we will carefully determine if there is enough bone and gum density in the area of the gap to support the immediate-loading dental implants. If so, we can proceed with treatment. If not, then we can discuss alternatives.
What should I expect my Same Day Teeth® to look and feel like?
The results of Same Day Teeth® are nothing short of life changing, allowing patients to experience a full and healthy set of teeth in just one visit. From regaining the ability to eat their favorite foods to being able to smile with confidence, patients report a greater quality of life and sense of self confidence in their appearance. The dentures we place for Same Day Teeth® are so well-crafted that they look just like natural teeth.
So how do I find out for sure if I’m a candidate for Same Day Teeth®?
Since every mouth is different, the best way to get an answer to this question is to visit us for a consultation. Same Day Teeth® is a great option to consider for major tooth loss, but it’s not for everyone. But whether you’ve recently experienced significant tooth loss or have been missing teeth for some time, schedule a consultation with us and we’ll take a look at your options. We’ll discuss Same Day Teeth® and, if you’re not a candidate, other restorative options for your smile.
