Step 2 - Teeth Fabricated

Your Temporary Set of Teeth . Your provisional or temporary set of teeth will be made completely from acrylic incorporating the abutments that will attach the bridge to the dental implants. This prosthesis will extend back to the first molar area which is necessary for proper implant healing.

Step 5 - Final Restoration
After the implants have healed for 6 months, a permanent set of teeth will then be fabricated and secured onto a fixed titanium implant bar making it a fixed hybrid bridge. This will happen in 3 or more appointments at your dentist’s office. Your Permanent Set of Teeth. Your permanent or final set of teeth will be made with acrylic incorporating a titanium framework for long-term support that will be anchored to the dental implants with prosthetic screws through holes in the prosthesis.

Maintaining Your New Smile


While Teeth-in-a-Day is a final full arch solution, your new fixed implant bridge will need to be maintained in the following ways:
•  Screws will need to replaced each time your dentist removes the prosthesis. Good hygiene habits will reduce how often this needs to be done.
•  The titanium bar lasts for life in most cases, but the teeth will need to be replaced every 7-8 years depending on your opposing dentition and wear.
•  Daily hygiene using a soft toothbrush with light pressure followed by proxy brush and/or Waterpik® to clean under the prosthesis and around the implants. (Avoid regular toothpaste and other harsh abrasives)
•  Regular hygiene visits to your dentist to treat both arches every 6 months.
•  Keep your provisional in case your final set of teeth needs to be repaired for any reason.


Pre-Op Patient Information


•  Two Stage Treatment: The two stages include provisional/temporary stage and the final stage (it takes one month to fabricate final prosthesis)
•  Total of 6 Appointments: Appointments include 1) Records before surgery for provisional prosthesis 2) Day of Surgery 3) Check occlusion after surgery 4) New records for final restoration 5) Bar with teeth try-in 6) Final delivery of final hybrid restoration
•  Implant Stability: There is a very slight chance you will need to go into an immediate denture should implants not torque. It is extremely rare, however the final restoration will still be fixed or non-removable because it is screw-retained.
•  Provisional VS. Final Restoration: The provisional/temporary prosthesis will be made entirely of acrylic and the final hybrid bridge will be supported by a titanium bar for long-term wear and durability.
•  Provisional Teeth: The provisional set of teeth will only extend to the last implant and may feel "short" in order to avoid fractures. Your final restoration will reach past the last implant giving you more teeth to chew on.
•  Length of Provisional Stage: Your provisional should be worn for 6 months until which time the tissue is completely remodeled in order to achieve the best final result.
•  Aesthetic Changes: Consider the provisional a test run for any changes you'd like to make to the final set of teeth and share with your restorative dentist at the first final appointment.
•  Long-Term Maintenance: The titanium implant supported bar is for life in most cases but teeth will need to be replaced every 5-8 years on the average depending on opposing dentition and wear. There is an additional cost for this.
•  Clinical Care and Removal: Regular hygiene appointments with your regular dentist will be necessary to maintain your prosthesis. Screws should be replaced each time your prosthesis is removed. Good personal hygiene will reduce how often this needs to be done. There is an additional cost for this.
•  Patient Hygiene: Avoid regular toothpaste and abrasive cleaners. Gently clean with baby brush and use a proxy brush or Waterpik® around implants followed by an oral rinse prescribed by your dentist.
•  Diet: While you are wearing your provisional, please only consume foods that you can cut with a fork. This includes cooked vegetables, chicken and fish. Foods to avoid are things like nuts, hard candies, raw vegetables and tough meats.
•  Provisional/Temporary Implant Bridge: Your temporary or provisional set of teeth will only reach to the last implant which may feel short to you in order to avoid fractures. Rest assured, your final hybrid set of teeth with extend farther back because it will be support by a strong titanium bar.
•  Bite/Occlusion: During surgery, you mouth was open for an extended period of time. This may cause disorientation in your bite resulting in difficulty in accurately setting your occlusion (how the teeth come together). An additional appointment with your regular dentist will be necessary to do any final adjustments 48 hours after surgery.
•  Gap: Your temporary prosthesis will rest slightly above your tissue to avoid pain after surgery, allow the tissue to freely heal as well as allow you to keep your provisional clean. As your tissue heals from surgery, the gap or space between your temporary implant bridge and your tissue may slightly increase. Your final hybrid bridge will close this gap to a minimum always leaving some space to be able to clean under your final implant bridge.
•  Provisional/Temporary Period: Use this time to determine what, if anything, about your teeth you would like to change for your final restoration i.e.
shade/shape/smile line etc. Share these changes in your first appointment for the final restoration with your dentist. Once your final implant bridge is made, you cannot go back and make changes. The first appointment is the time to do this.
•  At-Home Hygiene: Use oral rinse only as prescribed by your dentist for the first two weeks after surgery. Thereafter, avoid regular toothpaste and abrasive cleaners. Gently clean with baby brush and use a proxy brush or Waterpik® around implants followed by oral rinse.
•  Fractures: Should your provisional/temporary set of teeth fracture for any reason, please see your regular dentist immediately.


Restore Your Smile, Without the Wait


David R. Moyer Cosmetic & Family Dentistry will begin with a 3D scan, allowing your provider to view a three-dimensional virtual model of your mouth. This allows your dentist to customize your implant procedure by identifying the exact positions where the implants should be placed in your mouth, while also understanding how the factors of bone quality, implant spacing, and other anatomical structures in your jaw will affect the final set of replacement teeth and their associated implants.

Are Teeth-in-a-Day right for me?
Patients who have the right amount of bone available in their jaw, and who do not need any other adjunctive dental procedures for the success of their dental implant may qualify for Teeth-in-a-Day. After a 3D scan of your head and neck, David R. Moyer Cosmetic & Family Dentistry will consult with you to determine whether this course of treatment is right for you.
