How Long Will Teeth-In-A-Day Last?

Dr. David Blaustein at Chelsea Dental Aesthetics offers the latest technology to provide patients with teeth in a day.

Given the past process that may have included bone grafting, fittings for temporary dentures, and up to 18 months of dental visits, you may be thinking this sounds “too good to be true.” That is understandable, but fast, long-lasting, high-quality implants are, in fact, available for most individuals.

What are teeth-in-a-day?

Admittedly, the name is a little bit of a misnomer, since most “same day implants” and “teeth in a day” dentistry requires two or three appointments. The basic gist is that all the tooth fabrication and placement is done in one brief, convenient visit. Even the complex work of multiple implants or grafting can now be completed in just one day, thanks to computer and 3-D printing technology. At your first visit, you’ll be measured and images of your teeth will be taken for planning purposes. All the initial prep and temporary dental work is done in one day. Finally, the temporary teeth are replaced with more permanent ones once the implant posts fuse more permanently with the jawbone.

How long will teeth in a day last?

Dental implants – even those done in a single day – should last for decades if they are well cared for, just like normal teeth. Generally speaking, if you are over 45 years old, your same day dental implant posts can last a lifetime. The crown typically needs replacement every 10-15 years due to the normal wear and tear of chewing. Long-term studies are limited, but the literature suggests success rates ranging from 93 to 98 percent in the first decade.

An expert implant dentist will be able to evaluate the process of osseointegration to tell whether or not your jawbone has completely absorbed the titanium post. In addition to the dentist’s skill in assessing and placing the implants, a patient’s genetics, overall health, nutritional habits and lifestyle will also influence longevity. Patients with diabetes, cancer, or heart disease may require more frequent dental work, for instance, so it is important to be candid in discussing your complete medical history with your dentist.
