Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Next Day®
Before investing in a procedure for your dental health, you probably have many questions and concerns. At Vero Dental Spa, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions by our patients so that you can go to your Teeth Next Day® consultation with as much knowledge as possible. While Teeth Next Day® is a tooth restoration treatment, the best way to ensure a successful treatment is by making the appropriate preparations and following the dentist’s instructions.
What is Teeth Next Day®?
Teeth Next Day® is an implant-supported teeth replacement treatment that restores multiple missing teeth all in one surgery. For full arches, we will embed between 4-6 implants into the jawbone. The implants will then serve as anchors to support the entire row of replacement crowns. Unlike traditional implant-supported teeth replacement treatments, Teeth Next Day® replaces arches of missing teeth without the hassle of going through multiple surgeries. As the name implies, this form of implant-supported teeth replacement can fully restore your teeth in one day.
Who offers Teeth Next Day®?
Teeth Next Day® is solely offered by Dr. Ajmo at Vero Dental Spa in Vero Beach, FL, and his practice PGA Advanced Dentistry in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Dr. Ajmo is the only cosmetic surgeon in South Florida with the skills and credentials to perform Teeth Next Day®.
Unlike other versions of implant-supported treatments, Teeth Next Day® implant bridges are not mass-produced. We construct the Teeth Next Day® distinctly for each patient. With advanced training and education on the latest dental procedures and restorative techniques, Dr. Ajmo is a top provider of this advanced implant-supported treatment.
What’s the difference between traditional dental implants and Teeth Next Day®?
The primary difference between dental implants and Teeth Next Day® is the timeline and final results. To benefit from traditional dental implants, you’ll have to wait about six months for the implants to heal in your jaw. You will also have to routinely make visits back to the dentist to ensure that the dental implants are healing correctly by fusing to the jawbone.
On the other hand, Teeth Next Day® only takes about two dental visits. As far as appearance, dental implants are individually embedded into the jawbone, supporting one crown per implant. With Teeth Next Day®, an entire arch of teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth is supported by implants. The weight of this arch will need to be distributed equally over your jaw, requiring between four to six implants instead of one implant per tooth.
Am I a candidate for Teeth Next Day®?
Teeth Next Day® is a viable dental restoration option for patients with one or more missing teeth or who are unhappy with their dental bridges or dentures. A good candidate for Teeth Next Day® has been experiencing dental problems that often aren’t resolved with standard dentistry.
Dr. Ajmo might recommend additional treatments, like gum grafts or bone grafts, to ensure your mouth is stable enough to receive Teeth Next Day®. You should also follow the doctor’s instructions closely, as failure to do so could inhibit your mouth’s ability to heal. Smoking, drinking excessively, and drug use can also cause implant failure. If you are pregnant, you will need to wait until after pregnancy to undergo surgery.
Does Teeth Next Day® hurt?
During your Teeth Next Day® procedure, we will ensure that you feel no discomfort. You might experience slight bleeding and swelling after your procedure. Dr. Ajmo will instruct you on proper postoperative care for a simple, healthy, and pain-free recovery.
We will also make sure you have the appropriate medication for postoperative pain management. We will prescribe medication, along with ibuprofen or Tylenol, to make sure you’re comfortable. You will also get an antibiotic to ensure you do not experience an infection or unnecessary inflammation.
What if I have dental anxiety?
For patients with dental anxiety, Dr. Ajmo might recommend several sedation options. Different forms of sedation can help you relax in the dental chair, making you feel more comfortable throughout your entire procedure.
