The idea of traditional methods of replacing teeth can be daunting for patients who are worried about long wait times while anticipating their final restorations. Dentures can take some time to complete, as can dental bridges. This is why patients with tooth loss may want to speak to Dr. Michaela McKenzie of Atlanta, GA area about “Teeth in a Day.”
This treatment plan is often suggested for individuals who need to repair their smile after all their teeth are lost, or after the remaining teeth are extracted. A consultation appointment is the place to start. Patients book an appointment with Dr. Michaela McKenzie of Dazzling Smiles to discuss their restorative options. Some patients may not be considered appropriate for Teeth in a Day, depending on their specific budget, needs, and on whether they have sufficient bone for the placement of the implants. This is all discussed during the first appointment when an evaluation is completed. This examination may also include x-rays to check for the health of the bone underneath the gum line.
Once patients have been considered appropriate candidates for the procedure, they must then book their appointment. This appointment is an oral surgery treatment that is completed under general anesthetics for optimum comfort. It may not be done in the dental office but instead an oral surgery clinic. Patients are monitored throughout the procedure by an anesthesiologist to ensure safety. During this treatment, the surgeon will remove any remaining teeth for preparation. Then, the surgeon will place several dental implants along the gum line. Next a dental arch snaps into place using the implants for stability and strength. Once patients awaken, they will be able to see their brand new smile!
