Teeth in a Day

All on 4, Teeth tomorrow, teeth in 10 minutes, teeth yesterday….there are so many “catchy” names but the concept is basically taking a patient that has teeth or dentures and converting them to implant teeth in one day. Dr. Reuter offers every research validated protocol for immediate implant teeth but customizes the surgery and implant placement to the patient’s specific needs. Dental implants should not be a “one size fits all” commodity and there are significant differences in the products advertised that Dr. Reuter can review with you.

Dr. Reuter teams up with some highly skilled dentists and prosthodontists to offer this to our patients. The process starts with removing any remaining teeth and placing implants. We then connect parts to accept the implant teeth and then the teeth are secured into the implants. Most cases are done while the patient is under anesthesia and the post operative discomfort is surprisingly minimal. The final set of teeth are delivered after the implants have integrated to the bone and the soft tissue has healed.

This patient had both upper and lower implant reconstruction and elected to undergo one arch at a time. The surgery is usually performed under anesthesia and the patient has the customized teeth delivered the same day.
When a patient needs to transition to full upper tooth removal, it allows us to optimize esthetics and change the facial profile. Dr. Reuter removed all upper teeth and placed implants and she went home that day with her new smile.
This patient had full upper and lower implant reconstruction. Dr. Reuter removed all teeth and placed implants all in the same surgery. The teeth were delivered the same day and the patient never went a day without teeth.

This patient did not want to have an upper denture so Dr. Reuter removed the upper teeth and placed implants in the same surgery. Her final teeth looked and felt like normal teeth.

Am I a candidate?

Many patients assume that they may not be a candidate based on age or that teeth have been missing for a long time. During an implant consult, Dr. Reuter performs a complete exam and cone beam CT scan. He is able to digitally perform surgery and assess the available bone and soft tissue for implants. Most patients have multiple implant options available to them and even patients that have been in dentures for years are usually good candidates. There are a few contra-indications to dental implants and also a few risk factors that Dr. Reuter will address if applicable, but the vast majority of our patients undergo successful implant teeth replacement.

This patient experienced significant bone loss and changes in her facial appearance. Though she had significant bone loss, Dr. Reuter worked with her anatomy to provide 5 implants to support a full set of teeth.

Many cases that involve removing multiple teeth allow us to utilize the best anatomy and avoid areas that have less bone. This patient had full upper and lower extractions and implant placement in the same surgery. The implants are placed in areas with the best bone avoiding the sinus and vital nerve anatomy. Dr. Reuter utilizes sophisticated software programs to plan and place the implants.
