Every year, Dr. Clagett sees hundreds of Kentucky men and women interested in receiving dental implants to replace loose or missing teeth, or because they want a complete smile restoration. During his initial consultations with these patients, he is often met with concerns over the extended timeline of traditional dental implants. But wait! There’s good news! For patients who are looking for a more efficient restoration period, Dr. Clagett offers another option commonly referred to as Teeth-In-A-Day.
Because he believes in educating each and every patient he sees about their prospective procedure, we want to take a minute to give you 3 ways Teeth-In-A-Day can benefit you versus other teeth replacement options.
1. Teeth-In-A-Day is an Efficient Process
The most amazing benefit of the Teeth-In-A-Day procedure for Kentucky patients is its efficiency. With traditional dental implants, several procedures may be required before you are able to get your final set of teeth. And weeks, sometimes even months, go by between each of those procedures. That means receiving your final set of teeth with traditional dental implants can take 9 months or more! With Teeth-In-A-Day, the dental implant process is streamlined into one appointment! You will leave Dr. Clagett’s office with a new set of fully functional temporary teeth! Once your jawbone heals and fuses to your dental implants – usually within 3-4 months – your restorative dentist will place your final set of teeth.
2. Teeth-In-A-Day is Cost Effective
The efficiency of the Teeth-In-A-Day procedure makes it cost-effective as well. Traditional dental implants often require pre-surgeries like gum grafts, bone grafts, and sinus lifts. This can get costly. But because Teeth-In-A-Day dental implants only use strong, healthy jawbone, there is no need for pre-surgeries. Dr. Clagett will only need to perform one procedure! And one procedure means lower costs.
3. Teeth-In-A-Day is Minimally Invasive
Finally, the Teeth-In-A-Day dental implants surgery is minimally invasive. Traditional dental implants require as many as 8 dental implants per arch of teeth needing to be replaced. Teeth-In-A-Day implants typically only require 4 implants per arch! With this minimally invasive approach, Kentucky men and women can expect to heal more quickly and have a fully functioning set of teeth sooner!
