Teeth in a Day



Can you really receive a new set of replacement teeth in just one day? Under the care of our trained professionals at Prosthodontic Dental Group, the answer is yes! Our team has the experience and expertise to perform some restorative treatments that give you a brand new smile in just one appointment. Each of these treatments involves the use of dental implants—titanium posts that serve as the root attachment to prosthetic teeth.

Each implant is placed below the gums and into the bone. Over a period of three to six months, the bone and implant undergo a process known as osseointegration. The bone will begin to grow over and fuse with each implant, creating a bond strong enough to support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth.

Although the healing process for each treatment may take several months, you will receive a temporary set of replacement teeth immediately after surgery. This is why we often refer to the following procedures as "teeth in a day."

Fixed Full Arch Bridges


A fixed full arch bridge is a non-removable set of prosthetic teeth. A full arch bridge is supported by six implants. At Prosthodontic Dental Group, we offer a treatment known as the All-On-4® treatment concept, which as the name suggests, only requires the use of four implants. This can be a cost-effective and convenient alternative to other fixed full-arch bridges.

Fixed full arch bridges are the ideal choice when it comes to aesthetics and function. Made of porcelain, these restorations look and feel like your natural teeth. They also support the strongest bite force, allowing you to eat all your favorite foods without worry.

Implant Supported Dentures


Implant supported dentures are used for your lower arch (although they can be used for your upper jaw as well). They consist of 2 or more implants and a removable appliance. Implant supported dentures provide more support than a traditional denture and prevent slips when chewing or speaking. Traditional dentures require adhesives that are often messy and unreliable. They also rest on your gums which can lead to pain and discomfort. Implant supported dentures allow you to eat foods that would otherwise be problematic for dentures. Unfortunately, you should still avoid hard or sticky candy. Your dentures should be removed at night and placed in a room temperature cleaning solution. You will have to brush your gums and implants on a daily basis.

Bar-Retained Dentures


Bar-retained dentures are another type a removable appliance. They require the use of three to four implants, and a metal bar attached to support the denture. The metal bar is situated just above the gums and follows the curvature of your mouth. Once the bar is installed, your final restoration is "clipped" into place. Like an implant supported denture, this appliance must be removed to be cleaned. Your bar and gums should regularly be brushed, and hard or sticky foods should be avoided. However, bar-retained dentures are more stable than their removable counterpart and allow you to enjoy an even stronger bite force.

Each of these treatments makes an excellent option for patients looking to repair their smile. If you currently use traditional dentures, we strongly recommend you consider an implant-supported restoration.
