How Teeth In A Day Works
First Step: Assessment
A thorough precise assessment is required to get ready for Teeth in a Day procedure. Measurements of the vertical dimension of the mouth, taking study models, impressions, scan and CT scans are required to get ready for the big day.

It’s crucial to perform the surgery virtually to avoid any unforeseen problems during the surgery and get all necessary tools and implant parts ready.
Second Step: Sedation , Anesthesia and Preparation
If a patient requires to be sedated for the surgery , we will perform IV sedation and provide enough anesthesia to get a complete comfortably numb jaw to start the procedure. Before placing the implants, the dental surgeon will perform any required procedures in your mouth. The procedure may include removing any diseased or decayed teeth left that could trigger an infection to interfere with final prosthesis.
Third Step: Implantation
The dentist then will use the surgical guide and will insert titanium screws(implants) into the jaw bone , this control measure will allow us to avoid any mistakes in the position and alignments of the dental implants . This procedure necessitates at least 4 implants in each Jaw bone to support a final restoration.
Fourth Step: To Complete

tissues will be placed back and sutured. After that, you’ll be transferred to a different room to wait for the sedative to wear off .
How Teeth in a Day Different From Traditional Implants
Regular implants require 6 to 8 implant posts to fully support the upper and lower arch dentures, whereas teeth-in-a-day only requires four due to its more efficient surgical techniques.Teeth in a Day patients rarely need bone grafting because the posts are strategically positioned to protect the thickest sections of the bone. However, bone grafting is often still necessary for traditional implants because of bone resorption resulting from teeth loss. Simply put, teeth-in-a-day is the faster, more cost-effective, and more comfortable dental implant supported prosthesis!
Nowadays, Teeth in a day are also being suggested to be done with at least 6 implants to prevent future complications and a more balanced durable longer lasting set of teeth.
