Has fear kept you or a loved one from visiting the dentist? Have you lost the hope that you could ever have the youthful smile you once had? For many patients, fear has lead to neglect and an overwhelming breakdown of their oral health. Moreover, if you have several missing teeth, are in pain, have difficulty chewing, are embarrassed to smile, or unsatisfied with your denture, New Smiles is here to help with New Smile in a Day.
What Is New Smile in a Day?
New Smile in-a-day is a procedure for those whose teeth cannot be saved. In the past this meant dentures. However, with the use of modern technology, we are able to replace all the teeth in one day utilizing implants. To begin the process we take detailed records including a CBCT (a 3-dimensional x-ray) to know exactly where the bone is for the implants. Then we take a detailed photograph to drive the cosmetic component. Finally, we make digital impressions of your remaining teeth and gums. All of these records are correlated together to design your new smile.
Every implant is then precisely planned and surgical guides are made to ensure the implants are placed in the exact location they are needed, which allows the bridge to be made in advance of the procedure. Before these technology advancements, it took almost a year to go from initial teeth removal to a prosthesis that could be supported by implants. Normally it takes 4 to 6 month for a single implant to be ready for a final crown. The secret to the New Smile in-a-day procedure is cross arch stabilization. Basically, by placing the bridge the day of the surgery, the implants are hooked together in a semi-circular arch, allowing them to support one another during healing.
New Smile in a Day Advantages
What sets us apart from others offering similar procedures is the accuracy with which we are able to perform the surgery. Your bridge is made before the surgery begins and delivered the same day, rather than having to go days or months without teeth. In addition, we utilize an anesthesiologist and a team approach for cases involving both upper and lower arches. Another thing that sets us apart is the number of implants we place as part of your surgery. In most cases, we place at least 6 implants to support an arch of teeth. However, sometimes only 4 implants fit in an arch. Some of our competitors have made this exception their standard and ONLY place 4 implants and they have even coined the term for this, the “all on 4”. This should be the exception, not the norm.
It is cheaper and easier to place only 4 implants. However, that is a lot of pressure to put on only 4 implants and if one implant fails, the entire bridge is lost. We want you to have long-term success with your new smile, so to avoid such a risk, we place more implants. Our desire for your long-term success has also prompted us to cover your hygiene cleanings for the first year, so you can have the best chance of success.
