The pursuit for that perfect smile can be fraught with questions. Even more so if you’re investigating dental implant procedures. At PGA Dentistry, we hope to relieve some of that anxiety by listing some of the more common questions we’ve encountered with our patients.
Teeth Next Day is an accelerated dental implant procedure that can replace multiple missing teeth with just one surgery and then immediately attaching teeth in one day. To replace multiple teeth, up to six implants are embedded in the jawbone, followed by implant attachments that anchor and hold up to a whole row of teeth. Essentially, Teeth Next Day can replace missing teeth without needing to undergo multiple implant surgeries. In addition, this process can be completed in one day, hence the name Teeth Next Day.
Teeth Next Day is exclusively offered at PGA Dentistry! Dr. Ajmo is the only dental implant surgeon in South Florida that can perform the advanced procedure called Teeth Next Day. We have a specialized lab here in our office where we construct the Teeth Next Day implant and craft it to your uniqueness. Having undergone extensive training and keeping up to date with the latest procedural techniques, Dr. Ajmo is well-experienced in this type of dental implant treatment. We have a host of satisfied patients, as well as a Before-and-After gallery to peruse at your leisure.
The major difference between the two types of tooth replacement procedures lies in the timeline and final product. For traditional dental implants, and depending on the number of implants you need, the process and osseointegration can take anywhere from four to six months. Not all patients have the luxury of that many visits, and so may opt for Teeth Next Day for a process that lasts two days or less. In terms of appearance, dental implants are individual implants that are embedded in the jawbone and support only one implant. With Teeth Next Day, multiple teeth can be replaced with one large implant anchor. The weight of the large implant is distributed over four to six implants instead of one for each tooth.
Teeth Next Day is recommended for patients who are missing one or more teeth or are struggling with dentures and dental bridges. They’re a permanent, long-lasting solution to give you that bright, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. It’s also recommended that you have good oral health. If you are currently experiencing a periodontal disease, discuss it with Dr. Ajmo at your consultation to see if any supplemental procedures are needed. It’s also expected that patients have sufficient bone or gum growth to support the Teeth Next Day. In the case where that growth may be lacking, Dr. Ajmo may recommend a gum or bone graft be performed. The bone or gum graft can often be done before the surgery, or even during the surgery along with the implant placement.
The key to solving dental anxiety lies in the approach to treatment. By using IV sedation, our patients are able to relax throughout the course of their procedures. This technique is indicated for patients who suffer from dental phobia and anxiety, as well as those who are undergoing extensive treatments.
During the Teeth Next Day procedure itself, Dr. Ajmo will administer IV sedation. With IV sedation, you can relax in the chair and won’t be able to recall the procedure. Dr. Ajmo can adjust the concentration through the IV to ensure that you remain calm and relaxed through the procedure.
