TEETH IN ONE DAY technique consists of making an immediate placement of the denture the same day of surgery. This treatment provides an effective and reliable restoration for patients and is orientated towards reseting all the teeth of the upper or lower jaw with a small number of dental implants.
This technique significantly reduces the cost of treatment, since we can reduce the number of implants placed, compared to other conventional techniques. We also save time and dental visits. It also provides instant relief to the patients’ chewing system, speech and aesthetics.
One of the most attractive points of the technique is that it can be applied in a high percentage of cases. As mentioned above, this procedure allows the patient to provide fixed teeth immediately. One of the biggest advantages is that it avoids temporary teeth which are very uncomfortable for the patient. The same day the provisional teeth are fixed, i.e., screwed to the implants placed. After four or five months (depending on each case), they will be replaced by the final prosthesis.
HOW DO THIS TECHNIQUE WORK?
The patient goes to the consultation, the personalized study is done withappropriate radiographs and measures that are taken to initiate the treatment plan.
2-Surgery day – Morning
Already in the clinic, the procedure starts. If required by the patient, the anesthesiologist provides sedation (Conscious Sedation) so you can reach a state of deep relaxation. If necessary, the extractions are performed and dental implants that will hold the prosthesis are placed. After the surgery, the prosthetis is retouchedto adapt so that it is perfectly adjusted to the patient’s mouth.
3-Surgery Day – Afternoon
The provisional prosthesis is placed and fixed, so that the patient can go home with functional teeth.
During this time, we perform periodic reviews until 4-5 months to proceed to make the final prosthesis. Once you have completed the healing process, we proceed to make the final prosthesis.
Q._ What benefits does this new treatment have?
A._ The most important thing is that, with a small number of implants,we provide the patient with a fixed prosthesis on the same day, reducing costs and time of treatment and, this way, improve the quality of life of our patients.
Q._ After placing the dental prosthesis, you can chew normally?
A._ Initially a soft diet for is recommended a month; after this time the patient can eat normally.
Q._ What anesthesia is applied in this type of surgery?
A._ It is equal to the one used for any other dental works (fillings, extractions, etc…)
Q._ Conscious Sedation is optional?
A._ Yes, it depends on the patient, and if the surgeon believes that it can improve the quality of his/her work it can be advised.

A._ Yes. The patient can respond to phrases such as “open or close the mouth”, so it is very safe for him.
Q._ How long does the intervention take?
A._ Surgery, with all phases of prosthesis, lasts approx. 2 hours.
Q._ What are the benefits of this technique, compared to a conventional technique of dental implants?
A._ It takes little time, prevents bone graft, it is more economical and recovery is very fast.
Q._ Why in this technique you can make immediate placement and in the conventional technique of implants you must wait a while before making the treatment?
A._ By the strategic placement of implants, the design of these, as well as that of the prostheses.
Q._ Is there any contraindication having to do with the age of the patient for the placement of implants?
A._ No, but as always, each case is unique and depends on the discretion of the surgeon.
Q._ What guidelines should be followed after the surgery?
A._ Medication for a week, and a softdietfor one month.
Q._ In the case of having periodontal disease, treatment is possible?
