The Lasting Solution for a Single Missing Tooth

Gain a New Smile and Renewed Confidence in Just One Day!

Now, it is possible to go from having missing teeth to having a functional and esthetic smile in just one treatment session. If you desire a more beautiful smile without having to wait like you do with traditional dental implants, we offer Teeth In One Day. Our state-of-the-art Teeth In One Day process eliminates the four to six-month implant integration period that’s usually required before new teeth can be placed.

With the coordination of your surgeon, hopeless teeth can be removed, dental implants placed and a fixed temporary bridge inserted within 24 hours in most cases. Teeth In One Day is an option for patients who need numerous teeth replaced, or even a whole upper or lower set of teeth. The procedure is a relatively new technique in dentistry and allows patients to receive an entire arch of prosthetic teeth in a single appointment with a surgeon. By using typically just 4 to 6 dental implants instead of one implant per tooth, the procedure is minimally invasive and can replace an entire set of teeth without the need for repeat surgical visits.

Upgrade Your Dental Work

If you are tired of wearing a denture or if your denture is loose and ill-fitting, a Teeth In One Day procedure will help you get rid of your denture and provide you with permanent, natural-looking teeth.

This solution is of great value in cases of a single to a complete replacement of teeth. The initial stability that is achieved with implant placement, combined with the splinting effect that is achieved by joining multiple implants together with an all acrylic prosthesis, acts to stabilize the implants and control the load during the osseointegration healing period.

This type of dental makeover can be a life-altering experience for patients who have previously had a lifetime of dental difficulty.

How Does it Work?

New 3D digital x-ray technology allows us to provide quick, comfortable and effective dental imagine for precise implant diagnostics and review.

Starting Place

Our dentists take records of your existing condition, whether you still have teeth or are wearing a denture, determining various factors. These include how long the teeth should be, where the bite should be and how much lip and facial structure support is needed.



CT scans produce 3-D pictures of the jawbone, including the position of the teeth to be replaced. These scans provide critical information about a person’s anatomical structures and the ideal location for the implants.



Using computer simulation, the implants are digitally positioned in the jawbones in appropriate locations to optimally support the replacement teeth. This also allows for the fabrication of a surgical template if needed.


Precision Surgery

Surgery can be done simultaneously, including tooth extractions, bone shaping, and implant placement. Skill, experience and meticulous planning are needed, particularly if the person has had significant bone loss.


Temporary Teeth

Temporary acrylic replacement teeth are attached directly to the implants via abutments — connectors that allow solid attachment to the implants. These teeth are considered temporary and are needed to facilitate initial healing; they will later be removed and replaced with permanent ones.



The temporary teeth stay in the mouth for approximately 3 months until healing is completed. During the first 6-8 weeks of healing, it’s a good idea to avoid chewy or tough foods. Because implant surgery is very precise and well-planned, people generally have little post-operative discomfort and begin functioning with their new temporary teeth almost immediately.


Permanent Teeth

When the process of osseointegration is completed, our prosthodontists remove the temporary teeth replacing them with the permanent ones. They are generally made of stronger, more durable materials and fit the healed gum tissues more precisely. The new permanent teeth will function just like natural teeth and look beautiful, too!

Advancements in Implant Technology

Improvements in implants now permit people who previously couldn’t have implant dentistry because of poor bone (quality or quantity) or expense, to get treatment. Similarly, since implant and restorative dentistry have improved so much, we can now use fewer implants to replace teeth compared to recommendations made only a few years ago.

The procedure is a relatively new technique in dentistry and allows patients to receive an entire arch of prosthetic teeth in a single appointment with a surgeon. Advanced 3D diagnostics help the doctors conduct a full oral exam which includes digital X-Rays and a 3D CT scan. The scanner takes a series of digital X-rays in a complete circle around your head and processes them into crisp, 360-degree views of your teeth, jawbone and surrounding structures. The 3D images show where the bone is adequate to support implants, allowing him to plan your treatment with complete precision. Loading the 3D images from the CT scanner into special implant planning software, we can map out the exact position, depth and angle of each implant ahead of time.

Patient Care While Healing

Not every patient and not every site is indicated for Teeth In One Day. Patients need to understand the limitations of such treatment and be willing to accept the precautionary measures that are scientifically set forth. It is strongly recommended that patients be on a soft diet during the three-month healing period to limit the functional forces during osseointegration. While this can not be easily enforced, patient compliance is an important factor in achieving success.
