Teeth, “In-A-Day”

TEETH, “IN-A-DAY” is a concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a series of procedures that can be completed in one day. This concept requires collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the surgeon, and careful pre-operative planning involving patient-specific CT scan guided treatment planning. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement. In addition, the fabrication of a final prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery. In some cases computer-guided implant surgery can be done without any large incisions or soft tissue flap reflection. This benefits the patient because there is less postoperative discomfort, less swelling and less bruising. Patients can often resume their normal activities within a day or two of the surgery.

The process starts when a CAT scan (CT) is taken of the patient’s jaws. This CAT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jaws that can then be used with virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are more accurate implant placement, and less chair time for the patient at the surgery office.

This procedure was designed with the completely edentulous (missing all teeth) patient in mind, and usually begins with a temporary prosthesis that will be replaced after several months of healing with a more permanent design.

Patients should be wary of treatment centers that promise unrealistic outcome for such a series of procedures, and of those who offer misleading information regarding the actual time and cost associated with such sophisticated treatment. If you think you may be a candidate for such a treatment please contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Heggland.

I had two wisdom teeth and two adjacent teeth extracted. The procedure was done very professionally, and was almost painless although I chose to have only novocaine used as an anesthetic.

Dr. Heggland and his staff are top notch professionals. From the initial consultation to the procedure itself, everything was seemless. After the procedure, which took less than 30 minutes, I took the prescribed ibuprofen and never felt any discomfort whatsoever. I hope I don't have to see Dr. Heggland again but if I do, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

This office went out of their way to accommodate me and get me in for an extraction. I wasnt evern sure what tooth was causing the problem but once Dr. Heggland reviewed the CT study done there, he was quite confident where the problem was and . . . YIPPIE - no more pain. He did an excellent job diagnosing my problem and I am very thankful for the care he and his office staff delivered. BIG THANK YOU

I couldn't ask for a better resolution to a painful interruption in life. Upon an "urgent" (on my part) diagnosis from an endodontist (another hero, Tracy Ackerman et. al)., I was referred to Dr. Heggland and he was kind enough to see me the same day! Evil tooth and pain removed about two hours later! Professional, smart and comforting. With an excellent staff for support. What more can you ask for?

Dr. Heggland was great. He did an exam, taking xrays and explained everything to me in detail. i felt very comfortable. During the procedure he explained what was occurring and gave me instructions at the end. Dr. Heggland called to check on me later in the afternoon. Everything went fine. I would recommend Dr. Heggland to everyone.
