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.

It was a real surprise having a tooth pulled and NEVER experienced any pain. My fear of going to a dentist or having a tooth pulled is GONE. Thanks Dr Karl

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I have a hard time with getting work done in the "dental" chair. It always gives me anxiety. I had to get a tooth pulled and it turned out I needed a bone graft as well. I can say that Dr. Heggland made me feel comfortable and made me forget my fears. He kept me informed of what was going to happen before it happened and made sure I was still content during the procedure. I couldn't believe how quick the transition was from getting the tooth pulled to the bone graft being completed. The communication between him and his team is astounding and made for the most comfortable appointment I've had in a very long time.

Dr heggland and entire staff are the best. I had a pretty serious oral surgery performed by dr heggland recently who was referred to me by my dentist in winter park. I have never been more impressed with any doctor or group ever. Thatโ€™s the truth. Dr heggland not only is a great surgeon but he communicates and explains everything I asked. If I ever need any oral surgery done again (hope not) I will never go anywhere else. I would recommend this group 100 percent to anyone.
