Dentures are not the only option for replacing several missing teeth. The One Day Smile Solution uses four dental implants to stabilize a full set of upper or lower permanent teeth. Because the implants are embedded into your gums, they are much more secure than dentures that only sit on your gums.
The One Day Smile Solution is recommended for patients with excessive bone loss that prevents them from getting individual dental implants. It’s also the perfect teeth replacement system for those who want the freedom to eat whatever they want without worrying about their dentures coming off.
Other benefits to using the One Day Smile Solution:
- Quick procedure that can be completed in one appointment
- No downtime and no waiting
- One of the most stable teeth replacement options
- Secure support for natural-looking, permanent teeth
- More affordable than individual dental implantsc
Only four titanium implants are used to anchor a full denture. The implants serve as “columns” that hold up the “roof” or the dentures. The two front implants are placed like usual, while the two implants at the back are placed at a 45-degree angle. This strategic position takes advantage of existing bone without the need for bone grafts. It also avoids the nerves in the lower jaw and the sinus cavity in the upper jaw.
During consultation, Dr. Receveur will examine your mouth and jaw (may involve x-rays and CT scans) to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. Your dentist will also take mouth impressions to help design the permanent denture.
Once you get the all-clear, Dr. Receveur will remove any remaining teeth, place the implants and attach the dentures on top—all on the same day. This is done under local anesthesia, but Dr. Receveur can administer sedatives if you are very anxious. Sedation dentistry is also recommended if you want a truly comfortable experience.
