‘Teeth-in-A-Day’ is a treatment approach that consists of extraction (removal) of teeth, followed by immediate placement of dental implants, and then immediate delivery of the temporary teeth, all on the same day, providing you with the benefits of immediate function and aesthetics. Our current technology and techniques makes this a reality in today’s dentistry. Patients can come in the office with no teeth or failing teeth that have to be extracted and leave with dental implants and tooth. If teeth have already been extracted previously, then implants are placed routinely and restored with teeth on the same day also.
Teeth-in-A-Day begins with design and fabrication of a transitional teeth by a Prosthodontist (whether in a single crown, bridge, or complete set of teeth) and a CBCT based computer-assisted treatment planning. Following teeth removal/extractions, the dental implants are placed as per the planning followed by restoration of the missing teeth site with transitional teeth on the dental implant by Prosthodontist.
Teeth-in-A-Day treatment, while possible in very selective cases and attractive, has become a widely used marketing tool to attract patients. Unfortunately there is a lot of misleading information and it is advisable for patients to consult the specialist mainly an experienced Prosthodontist & Implantologist then take a second opinion too before going for the same day tooth treatment option. You can ask Dr. Harendra shahi Prosthodontist & Implantologist and expertise of this field regarding tooth in a day at 3D Dental Implant Clinic, Kalikapur, embypass-Anwar-sah connector. Immediate implant placement shortens the overall treatment time and consolidates your procedures into one. We offer Teeth-in-a-Day treatments but only to patients who meet strict criteria. Violation of such criteria significantly increases complications and failure rate.

Immediate restorations refer to the situation in which a temporary tooth/teeth in the form of a single crown, bridge, or denture are placed on implants on the same day. Obviously, the advantage of this treatment is a patient having teeth right away, supported by the implants, providing them with good aesthetics and perhaps function and avoiding use of other forms of temporary teeth such as a removable teeth or denture/flipper. But it is important to realize that immediate restorations, while successful, is highly selective ,should only be considered in certain situations or condition of the mouth, that best judge by a Prosthodontist Otherwise, they will result in implant failure and loss.
The general principles for immediate restorations are as follows:
The Teeth-In-A-Day treatment is highly specialized therefore strongly recommended to visit an experienced Prosthodontist & Implantologist - Expertize in replacement of missing teeth by different methods including dental implant. The treatment sequence is:
