Frequently Asked Dental Implant Questions

Dental Surgery FAQ

A Teeth In One Day dental implant treatment can restore the quality of life for those who are suffering from edentulous (loss of teeth), near or partial edentulous. The procedure can be used to replace some or all of a person’s teeth, and is much more time and cost effective than other forms of dental implant procedures, while often offering a higher level of satisfaction and a better quality of life; both functionally and aesthetically.

More traditional dental implants required large numbers of screws, as many as one per tooth, to support a new set of teeth. If you are suffering from edentulous, or near or partial loss of teeth, then dental implants are one of the main solutions available. The implants themselves are made of titanium, and replace the root of the teeth, fusing with the bone cells of your jaw in a process known as osseointegration. This creates a solid structure for your new replacement teeth.

As well as single tooth replacement, Friedman Dental Group offer dental implant treatment for patient’s upper jaw, lower jaw, or in some cases complete treatment for the whole mouth.

We understand that patient’s have different needs, and one of the major differences is the location of the missing teeth. Whether you require a new upper arch of teeth, or a new lower arch, we can adapt our services in relation to bone structure and the placement of teeth.

For the patient, the upper jaw and lower jaw treatment are very similar.

The term ‘Same Day Dental Implants’ is understandably exciting for anyone seeking dental implant treatment, but what does it really mean? At Friedman Dental Group it means that you can walk away with replacement teeth that are fully functional and beautiful in just one day of surgery.

‘Same Day Dental Implants’ most commonly refers to the Teeth In One Day treatment; a revolutionary innovation in dental implant technology and procedure which allows for a full arch of replacement teeth to be placed on just 4 dental implants. The Teeth In One Day treatment allows patients to have their implants fixed, and then a replacement set of teeth placed on the same day.

When you lose one or more teeth, and especially if you are approaching edentulous, the jawbone can start to deteriorate. This is due to the under-stimulation of the bone tissue, which needs to be used in order to maintain its form and function. The alveolar is the bone that surrounds your teeth, and anchors them in the mouth.

There are not many prerequisites to having Teeth In One Day dental implants, but there are some considerations to make when you are deciding whether to try the treatment for yourself. Your specialist will also advice you on these factors when you arrange a consultation. The candidacy for Teeth In One Day dental implants is pretty much the same as for standard dental implants, but Teeth In One Day makes the procedure even more accessible.

Dentures are a treatment in which an acrylic base is custom made in a dental lab to fit over your gums. The teeth are not fixed, but are taken out of the mouth at night. They are fully functional, and help you to chew and speak, and also look like natural teeth too. All remaining teeth are first extracted.

Dental implants are fixed and permanent replacement teeth, and this is what most distinguishes them from dentures. The implants are a titanium screw-like solution which are fixed in where the root of your teeth would be. They fuse with the bone in your jaw, effectively creating a new structure for your teeth. A frame is then fitted to the implants, giving support to the jaw, and the replacement teeth are set permanently to the structure. The replacement teeth are still manufactured in a laboratory according to your own measurements.

The first modern dental implant was given to a patient of Branmark’s, called Larson, a man who could not chew properly. Four implants were inserted into the mandible, and within six months they had healed. The prosthesis was then attached, and amazingly was still there 40 years later.

In the late 1970s, after years of administering and researching dental implants, Branmark presented his data to the relevant authorities, and the American Dental Association gave full permission for many types of dental implant to be used as treatment of full or partial edentulous.

Nowadays the reliability of dental implants, and the overall comfort and non-invasiveness of the treatment is the best it ever has been, with long term satisfaction ratings of 97-99% being demonstrated.
