Our Implant specialist team at Indianapolis Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center have been performing Teeth-In-A-Day procedure since decade. This immediate implant function procedure is an innovative treatment which allows the same day replacement of infected or missing teeth with a naturally beautiful fixed dental implant solution. The procedure is minimally invasive, requiring placement of fewer implants and usually no bone grafting which significantly reduced recovery, downtime, and immediately improves your quality of life compared to conventional implant protocols.
With conventional implant procedures patients often have to wear removable full or partial dentures while their gums, bone, and implants are healing. This often can take as long as 12 to 18 months.
Yet, with Teeth-In-One-Day procedure, you can have your smile restored in a single visit. Patients will awaken after comfortable IV and return home with their immediately functional teeth attached to the implants.
Teeth In One Day is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure that takes about couple of hours. This technology utilizes collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the implant surgeon. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement.
In addition, the fabrication of a transitional prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery. The computer-guided implant surgery is done in minimally invasive fashion. This benefits the patient in that there is less postoperative discomfort, less swelling, and less bruising. Patients can often resume their normal activities within a few days.
The process begins when a CT scan is taken of the patient’s jaw bone. This CT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jaw bone that can then be used with virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are a more accurate implant placement and less chair time for the patient.
Our patients leave our office with a new set of temporary teeth. Following a short healing period, your restorative dentist can make you a permanent set of teeth that will function and look like natural teeth.
Teeth in a Day can be a good solution for people who have lost all their natural teeth in either their upper or lower jaw or in both jaws. See other options for Replacing a Full Mouth of Teeth. It is also good for people facing tooth loss.
With this technique, dental implants can be inserted into your jawbone and then immediately fitted with a new replacement bridge.
At Indianapolis Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center we suggest this treatment for anyone provided their jaws have finished growing and Teeth in a Day can be particularly effective for people who have struggled with dentures for many years.
It is important to have reasonable general health and people considering this treatment shouldn’t have any existing dental diseases, in particular gum disease or periodontal disease. There is no evidence to suggest the success of dental implant treatment is affected by age or gender.
With new teeth in one day you will receive a dental implant treatment that used to take months to complete in approximately one hour. You can leave our Indianapolis dental implants center with beautiful new teeth just a short while after treatment.
We use only the newest and most advanced dental equipment available on the market in USA. We use top quality medical grade titanium or titanium alloy, the same materials used for other bone implants and for orthopedic joint replacements.
Alternative treatments include traditional dental implant or or mini dental implants procedures where the implants are covered up and left to heal or procedures where immediate load dental implants with a temporary prosthesis that will remain until the implants have healed and integrated with the jawbone.
These may be more expensive and have their own advantages and disadvantages that will be discussed during your initial appointment with dental implants specialist in Indianapolis, Dr. Falender.
Dr. Lawrence G. Falender is a leading, best rated dental implant specialist in Indianapolis and one of few implant dentists in Indianapolis to offer newest and most advanced dental implant options and latest procedures.
The most popular teeth-in-a-day procedure performed by Dr. Falender is All-on-4, which is an advanced alternative to traditional dentures. Not only this immediate function procedure allows patients to receive their implants and beautiful new teeth all on the same day but also All-on-4 procedure can replace a full arch of teeth using only four implants and without bone grafts often saving time and money.
This immediate function approach to implant restorations is not only for patients with existing dentures. They are also for patients who have non-restorable, decayed or periodontal failing teeth. This way their smile can be restored with immediate implant placement and function without going through 6 months to 1-year healing process while wearing conventional dentures prior to implant placement.
Depending on patients’ desires for the type of final implant restorations, treatment expectation, and budget, a larger number of implants can be utilized with the immediate function approach. Even in situations where only a few missing or decayed teeth are replaced with implants, Dr. Falender is able to offer an immediate function approach for most of his patients.
Planning new teeth in 1-day treatment with best rated dental implants specialist in Indianapolis Dr. Falender of Indianapolis Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center:
>> In-Depth Consultation
Your treatment will begin with an in-depth consultation to assess your suitability for this treatment. During this implant consultation you will gain all the information needed for you to decide if treatment is suitable. The next stage is to carry out detailed diagnostics.
>> Identify Structure of Facial Muscles and Jaw Bones
To do this, Dr. Falender uses state-of-the-art technology that includes a Cone Beam CT scan to provide a 3-D image of your jaws. This is a specialized type of CT scan which produces a far lower level of radiation compared to conventional CT scans. The 3-D images produced by this scanner allow Dr. Falender to identify all the important structures in your facial muscles and jaw bones.
>> Produce A Surgical Guide
Special imaging software is used to plan the implant placements and to produce a surgical guide. This is a template that will be used during surgery to identify the exact positions of each dental implant. A surgical guide is important as it helps to eliminate errors and will ensure your surgery proceeds more quickly and more smoothly. Your new bridge will be fabricated before surgery even begins. Often we will use your current denture as a template to help design your new bridge, ensuring you will never be without teeth.
>> The Surgical Procedure
The surgical process used to insert the dental implants is incredibly precise, using computer guided dental implant surgery to position the dental implants so treatment will be a complete success. This ensures drilling is very quick using the surgical guide fabricated during the planning stage.
The implants fit precisely into implant sites created in your jawbone, eliminating spaces around the implants and helping to speed up healing.
With this treatment, your pre-made bridge can be fitted straightaway. This bridge will be your permanent bridge and is non-removable.
Advantages of New Teeth in A Day

- You will leave our dental office with your permanent teeth that are fully functional and which will look highly aesthetic.

- You can choose to have your upper or lower jaw restored on the same day and your dental implants will help preserve your jawbone.
Disadvantages of New Teeth in A Day
- You will need to have any tooth extractions completed before this surgery and any bone grafts must also be carried out beforehand. This may slow down the procedure slightly.
You schedule a free no-obligation consultation with Dr. Falender. He will examine your mouth, and discuss your dental situation, treatment options, and associated costs. If you decide that Teeth-in-A-Day is a good option for you, Dr. Falender will take 3D CT scan ($550 fee) to provide a detailed and accurate treatment plan with precise costs, treatment, and payment schedule. Having a 3D scan will allow us to ensure that the treatment plan will stay the same and our fees will not change throughout the treatment course (we’ve had very few price changes and only in exceptional circumstances or when a patient requested a change to the treatment plan). Note that 3D CT scan is yours, feel free to take it with you to seek a second opinion.
If you decide to proceed with Teeth-in-One-Day procedure, the Indianapolis office will collect the first payment and propose to schedule a convenient surgical date. In preparation for the surgery, we will take impressions, multiple records and pictures to send to our dental lab with Dr. Falender’s instructions on how to fabricate your teeth.
Dr. Falender will check your medical history to make sure that you are healthy to undergo the procedure. You will be contacted by our anesthesiologist to answer any questions or address any concerns.
Dr. Falender will discuss with you what type of smile you like and what smile fits your face. He often asks a patient to bring their old pictures with your natural teeth or pictures of people or celebrities whose smiles you find attractive. He welcomes your participation is your smile design.
On the day of the surgery under IV or oral sedation, the doctors will extract any diseased teeth, place the implants, and attach temporary but naturally-looking teeth to your dental implants. You will walk away with fully functional teeth and will be able to start eating and drinking immediately (“soft diet” only).
Over the next 3-6 month, your implants will be healing while Dr. Falender is monitoring the healing process. Some adjusted to the bite or appearance might be required. Once implants are fully healed in 3 to 6 months, we start the process of making your final prosthesis. This can take up to 4-5 appointments depending on a number of changes you would like to make to your temporary teeth. Dr. Falender works patiently with you and his dental lab to give you the smile that you are happy with. These appointments usually do not require any numbing and are of minimal discomfort.
The success rate for this treatment is very high, but is reliant on Indianapolis implant dentist using computer guided surgery to precisely insert the implants to ensure they cannot move once loaded with your new implant bridge.
The correct location also ensures the implant bridge can be made in such a way to look and feel very natural. Success is also dependent on patient compliance. Dr. Falender will give you all the instructions you need to look after your dental implants and to ensure they remain healthy and strong so they give you many years of trouble-free use.
With all types of dental implant procedures, good daily oral hygiene is vital as without this there is a strong chance your dental implants will become infected and they could fail. Any changes to your general health may also affect the long-term success of treatment and should always be discussed with your implant dentist.
The cost depends on the number and type of dental implants required and whether any tooth extractions and bone grafts need to be carried out beforehand. Treatment is very cost-effective compared to conventional dental implant surgery as fewer appointments will be required.
The cost depends on the material used, if bone grafting is needed, if a sinus lift is needed what type of temporary teeth are used there are many variables that effect the price and since every case is different it is best to set up a free dental implant consult at our Indianapolis dental office.
Following a consultation with a dental CT scan and diagnostic work up to determine if an Indianapolis patient is a candidate for the procedure, the replacement teeth are fabricated using digital planning software. This allows Dr. Falender to have the replacement teeth available to be placed on the same day the implants are placed.
If you are considering complete tooth replacement with dental implants, the best way to determine what is right for you is to seek Dr. Falender’s advice regarding all of your treatment options and then have him develop a personalized treatment plan with you.
