Examples of prosthetic teeth If you have heard of dental implants as a method for replacing lost or failing teeth, then you have probably formed the impression that the process goes on for weeks, possibly even months.

While this is true in many cases, it does not have to be. In fact, certain dental clinics, such as Dental Implants Hampshire, offer a special service called ‘Same Day Teeth’ or ‘Teeth in a Day‘. This significantly speeds up the process of restoring your missing teeth.

How Does It Work?

The basic premise is that you can have your implants fitted into your jawbone in just one day, including the final crowns, which are often made on site in the dental practice’s own laboratory.

This cuts out weeks of in-between time, during which the implants are meshing with your jawbone. Dental implants are made of titanium, a lightweight metal that has the ability to encourage new tissue growth around it. This is why it is used in many implants, not just dental ones.

This process of integration takes time, but once the fusion has taken place, the implants are securely held in place and can withstand the significant forces created by chewing.

Normally, you have your implants fitted and covered with a temporary cap and go away for several weeks for the gums to heal and the implants to fuse with the bone. You then come back for the crowns to be fitted.

All well and good if you are only having one or two teeth replaced, but if you are having the whole lot done, your only option is to carry on wearing your old dentures over the tops.

With ‘Same Day Teeth’, you arrive at the dental practice in the morning and have any failing teeth extracted. Next, you have your implants inserted in an operation that takes an hour or two. You then relax and recover for a few hours in a special room, while your new set of teeth is being made in the lab. They are then attached and you can go home and get on with your life. You can even eat dinner when you get back.
