Immediate Bite Restoration with Same Day Teeth®

Dental implants can be the very best available restorative option for patients who have suffered tooth loss. An implant-supported restoration can replace the entire structure of the tooth, from root to crown. However, traditional implants require at least two surgical procedures that are spaced months apart to allow the implant sufficient healing time to integrate within the jawbone. With Same Day Teeth® placed at our Tampa, FL, (Tampa Bay Area Florida Offices) oral surgery practice, we are able to immediately place your restorations on the same day as your implant procedure.

Dr. Michael A. Pikos has played a major role in advancing implantology since 1983. In 1990, he founded the Pikos Institute, where he teaches advanced surgical procedures to other implant dentists. He is an expert in his field, and can provide superb care. If you are missing teeth and would like more information about our Same-Day Teeth® treatment option, please contact our office to arrange a meeting with Dr. Pikos or one of our other skilled implant surgeons.

Dr. Michael Pikos discusses the history of Same Day Teeth® at Coastal Jaw Surgery in Palm Harbor, FL. Our doctors use computer guided technology to plan and perform implant procedures with great accuracy. By offering this service that plans out the entire procedure, from bone grafting to restoration placement, we can allow our patients to meet their goals promptly and with precision. 

The Same Day Teeth® Protocol

The Same Day Teeth® protocol uses some of the most advanced state-of-the-art technology in the industry to help us plan your surgery with the greatest accuracy and precision available. All of our procedures begin with a full imaging workup, using a 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan. This allows us to evaluate your underlying bone structure and plan for the optimal placement of your dental implants. With these images, we use a surgical planning software that develops a treatment strategy and acts as a guide throughout your entire procedure.

Our computer-guided dental implant surgery uses the nSequence® proprietary protocol to find the optimal placement locations for your dental implants. Next, we can place a bar-supported, immediate-load, full-arch restoration during the same visit as your surgery. Our custom-designed prosthetics are milled from a solid block of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) using impressions and computer images of your bite. This material is non-toxic and highly biocompatible. PMMA is very strong and durable, and our laboratory technicians can color-match your full-arch restoration to your natural teeth for a seamless integration into your smile. This method provides an immediate enhancement to the function and aesthetics of your bite.

Candidates for Treatment

Patients who are missing some or all of their teeth may be candidates for Same Day Teeth®. Before the procedure, your bite should be free from periodontal disease and decay. Some patients may require a bone grafting procedure prior to their implant surgery in order to restore lost bone tissue. In the absence of tooth roots, the jaw will begin to atrophy, and if you have waited to address missing teeth, the jaw may not have enough tissue to support the implants. We are able to perform whatever treatments are necessary to prepare our patients for their Same Day Teeth® procedure. If you would like to find out about your candidacy, we encourage you to schedule a personal consultation.
