Teeth in a Day – Southlake, TX
Gain a New Smile ASAP
Replacing missing teeth is essential. Even if it’s just one tooth, forgoing restoration can be detrimental to oral and overall health as well as a patient’s self-confidence. For patients who are missing an entire row or both arches of their teeth, the situation is even worse. Many patients gravitate toward dental implants, but the traditional implant process can be expensive and lengthy. That is why Dr. Doctor often recommends the Teeth in a Day procedure, which is sometimes referred to as All-on-4 dental implants. You could gain a new smile in a single appointment!
How Does Teeth in a Day Work?
Only four implants are needed to secure your new dentures. The position of each implant is carefully planned out before the placement surgery to take the best advantage of bone volume in your jaw. The implants are usually slightly angled for greater security. They are made of titanium, a biocompatible metal that allows the implanted post to integrate with surrounding bone tissue just as a natural tooth root would.
Before you leave our office, you’ll be given a temporary set of dentures. These will protect your gum tissue during healing and provide you with a complete smile.
The healing process will require several months. Then, you’ll return to see your dentist in Southlake to have him attach your permanent restoration. Your dentures will have a metal carriage along the underside with fittings that connect to the dental implants.
Am I a Candidate for Teeth in a Day?
Dr. Doctor will examine your jaw to ensure that you have adequate bone volume. The success of Teeth in a Day in Southlake largely depends on adequate bone density to provide a secure anchor and enough bone tissue to integrate with the implants. Because the implants in the Teeth in a Day procedure are placed where the bone is naturally thick and strong, most patients do have adequate bone density. In order to undergo the procedure, you should also be in fair overall health and have good habits that will increase your new smile’s chances of long-term success.
What Are the Benefits of Teeth in a Day?
The most obvious benefit of Teeth in a Day is that the process is so fast. Additional advantages include:
- This procedure may cost less than procedures that require more than four dental implants.
- Teeth in a Day dental implants give you a full and functional smile that requires basically the same care as natural teeth.
- Teeth in a Day dental implants stimulate healthy new bone tissue growth in your jaw. Without stimulation from tooth roots, your jaw can atrophy and begin to lose volume and shape. Teeth in a Day implants help to prevent this from happening.
- Your permanent denture will be quite natural-looking.
- There is usually no need for patients to undergo a bone graft.

Teeth in a Day Vs. Other Implant Procedures
As noted above, the price and timeline of Teeth in a Day may be more appealing than that of traditional implant procedures. However, a traditional implant-supported tooth replacement option may be better for some patients. For example, you might opt for an implant-retained overdenture, which offers the convenience of removability (which a Teeth in a Day denture does not). If you want an overdenture, it might even be possible retrofit your existing denture to work with implants. Or Dr. Doctor might recommend a procedure that requires more than four dental implants in order to give your new smile the greatest level of stability possible.
