Teeth In A Day
Can a missing tooth be restored in one day? This question worries many people who are faced with this problem. Is the level of modern dentistry capable of working a miracle, and can implantation be performed in one day and one visit?
The state-of-the-art options for dental implantation are very different from those that were a few years ago. The most popular today are methods that can quickly recreate lost teeth and at the same time are atraumatic for the patient.
Today it is possible to carry out one-stage implantation, as a result of which a one-stage surgical intervention is performed to install a dental implant into the bone tissue of the upper or lower jaws. All stages are performed without gum incisions. After installation, temporary plastic crowns are fixed on the same day. This method allows you to immediately restore the functional load and give a beautiful smile to the patient.
One-stage implantation is a "surgical manipulation", in which a denture is installed during one patient visit to dentistry.
Types of one-stage implantation:
- Instant - installation of the implant in the place where the tooth was just removed; sutures
are applied to the gums; a temporary plastic crown is fixed when healing takes place;
- Instant - the patient is additionally fitted with a gum shaper, which will retain the “pink aesthetics”;
- Immediate - includes a load setting, i.e. fix a temporary plastic crown on it.
The essence of the one-stage implantation method
The one-step method has various synonyms. You've probably heard of immediate loading implantation, bloodless, seamless techniques. This is the same method in which the prostheses are installed in one surgical procedure and one dental appointment.
The main task of one-stage or one-stage implantation is the rapid restoration of the lost chewing function and the solution of such problems as the even distribution of the chewing load and the aesthetic aspect.
As a result of one-stage implantation, the upper part of the implant rises above the gum, this makes it possible to do without re-incision of the gum.
After the plastic crown is fixed, it will perform temporary functions.
A permanent crown made of metal-ceramic or material chosen by the patient himself (for example, from zirconium dioxide) can be delivered in 3-6 months.
Most often, one-stage implantation is used for restoration in places where aesthetics are very important, namely in the smile zone.
Advantages of one-stage dental implantation
- It is a minimally invasive method;
- Healthy adjacent teeth do not need to be processed for prosthetics;
- No postoperative complications;
- The natural contours of the gums are preserved;
- There is a possibility of reducing the atrophy of the alveolar ridge;
- Perfect engraftment with bone tissue occurs;
- Chewing load is evenly distributed on adjacent teeth;
- Design reliability is ensured;
- The short period between surgery and the final stage of prosthetics;
- Getting an aesthetic design, in which you can not be ashamed of your smile;
- Low cost compared to alternative treatments;
- Saving patient time;
- Treatment comfort.

A comprehensive examination of the oral cavity, in which the dentist will perform diagnostic procedures and tell you about the condition of your bone tissue and teeth.
Preparation of the oral cavity for simultaneous implantation. It is recommended to eliminate all dental problems in the oral cavity. Carry out a professional oral hygiene procedure.
Extraction of one or more teeth. Installation of the required number of prostheses.
Fixation of a temporary crown.
Final (orthopedic) stage: fixation of the permanent crown. The dentist examines the oral cavity and assesses the condition of the implants, concluding that they have taken root, then the temporary plastic crown is replaced with a permanent one. It visually and functionally completely replaces the missing tooth.

Daily cleaning should be 2 times a day. Particular attention should be paid to areas such as the part protruding above the gum and the part adjacent to it.
