Teeth in a Day in Phoenix

Tooth decay, congenital dental problems, or even facial trauma can leave people with damaged teeth and disfigured smiles, putting patients in a precarious situation. Oftentimes, patients wonder if they should opt for traditional dentures or partial bridges, or if they should invest in dental implants, a procedure that can take months to complete. Fortunately, modern dental technology has offered a solution: teeth in a day, which we offer to patients all over Phoenix.

What Are Teeth In A Day?

As a certified periodontist, Dr. Trujillo has years of experience caring for patients with the most extreme dental issues. In addition to restoring their smiles by removing decay and stopping gum disease in its tracks, Dr. Trujillo has also placed thousands of dental implants over the years and helped his patients to achieve the smile of their dreams. However, unlike traditional dental implants, which are typically placed in the space where a tooth has been missing, teeth in a day is a procedure that involves removing damaged, discolored, or crooked teeth and then placing the implant into the socket immediately.

After a careful medical exam that includes 3D images of your teeth, gums, and underlying bone tissue, Dr. Trujillo will talk with you about your candidacy for the teeth in a day procedure. If you are a candidate, the procedure will be scheduled. To create your new smile, Dr. Trujillo will use the renderings of your teeth and molds taken of your mouth to send to the dental lab where your teeth will be fabricated. When your final crowns and implants are ready, you will be able to come in for the procedure. During the surgery, your entire mouth will be completely numbed using a powerful local anesthetic. Dr. Trujillo is also certified to offer other forms of sedation during your procedure to keep you comfortable.

Benefits of Teeth In A Day

The teeth in a day procedure has multiple benefits, but the biggest reason most patients opt for the procedure is to avoid the months of waiting that are typically required during normal dental implant placement. Although the procedure still takes two visits to plan and then to place the implants, patients won’t be faced with living for weeks with posts and healing caps.

The dental implants used in the teeth in a day procedure are also incredibly realistic, mimicking the natural color and opacity of your existing teeth. Dental implants also prevent further bone loss, help to restore chewing function, and are easier to care for than dentures.  

If you are interested in the Teeth in a Day procedure and want to learn more please contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Trujillo. We can’t wait to talk to you and help you gain a brighter healthy smile!
