Restore Full Arches of Teeth in One Visit to Dr. Conness
Living with entire arches of missing teeth can be a challenge. Instead of replacing every tooth with a single implant, you may benefit from affordable treatment with Teeth-in-a-Day. This revolutionary dental implant restoration can replace the full arches of your smile using just four implant posts.
As their name implies, Teeth-in-a-Day can be placed in one visit to the dental implant office of Dr. John Conness. Learn more about Teeth-in-a-Day and discover why Dr. Conness is one of the best dentists in Ottawa, IL for tooth replacement.
What is Teeth-In-A-Day?
Also known as All-on-4 implants, Teeth-in-a-Day is an ideal solution for patients looking to replace an entire arch of teeth. This dental implant technique involves placing a full arch restoration with no more than four to six titanium implants per arch.
Your jawbone will absorb the implant to mimic the structure of your tooth roots in a process called osseointegration. This process from our Ottawa implant dentist makes Teeth-in-a-Day a convenient, natural-looking, and long-lasting method of restoring your smile.
Benefits of Teeth-In-A-Day
- Affordability — Using just four to six implants helps save money during your restoration procedure.
- Short Procedure Time — Placing your implant-supported denture takes just one appointment at our Ottawa dental implant office.
- Smoother Recovery — Fewer dental implants mean your jawbone only has to work to integrate with four to six implants instead of one for each missing tooth. This makes recovery smoother.
- Easy Maintenance — Teeth-in-a-Day dental implants are as easy to care for as your natural teeth with routine brushing, flossing, and preventative dental appointments with our Ottawa implant dentist.
The Teeth-In-A-Day Process
Beginning your journey to a brand new smile starts with an initial consultation with our Ottawa implant dentist. Our hygienists will clean your teeth before Dr. Conness discusses your implant options and your medical history.
From there, Dr. Conness will determine your implant candidacy by assessing your oral health and taking a detailed impression of your teeth using our state-of-the-art technology. He’ll also treat any underlying problems or perform supplemental procedures in future appointments.
Placing Your Implants
We’ll begin your implant placement by preparing your mouth with another dental cleaning. Our expert dentist will then apply a local anesthetic and, if you choose, dental sedation to ensure your comfort throughout the entire treatment.
We’ll then place your four to six dental implants in predetermined locations in your jaw. Placing these titanium posts triggers osseointegration, in which your implants fuse with your jawbone. We’ll attach a temporary denture to wear while you heal.
Placing Your Teeth-In-A-Day Restoration
Once your implants have successfully integrated into your jaw, we’ll contact you and have you return to our Ottawa, IL dental office. Dr. Conness will remove your temporary appliance to place your personalized implant-supported dentures. You’ll leave our office the same day with a fully functional smile you’ll feel proud to share with the world.
Caring for Teeth-In-A-Day Implants
Dental implants can last a lifetime, and your supported dentures can last up to 15 years with the proper care. It’s easy to maintain the health and appearance of your Teeth-in-a-Day restoration. Follow our implant dentist’s care instructions to extend the lifespan of your restoration:
- Brush your dentures using a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste for two minutes twice daily
- Floss nightly between your teeth to remove plaque, food, and bacteria
- Rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash after eating
- Schedule twice-yearly appointments with Dr. Conness for professional dental cleanings and preventive maintenance
