The benefits of Smile in a Day dental implants…what our patients say

According to the thousands of patients who have chosen Total Dentalcare (TDC) to replace their loose and missing teeth, the top 3 benefits of Smile in a Day same-day dental implants are:

  • Being able to comfortably eat all the foods I used to enjoy
  • Being able to smile again
  • Regaining my confidence.

Here are ten more benefits to TDC Smile in a Day same day dental implants…

1. Your teeth are securely fixed in place, just like natural teeth

Dental implants are titanium screws that are carefully inserted into your jawbone to replace your natural tooth roots.

Smile in a Day is suitable for restoring full jaws (arches), multiple or single teeth.

As your new teeth are securely fixed onto the dental implants, they stay in place, night and day, just like natural teeth.

No more loose or gappy teeth, no more slipping dentures.

2. Your teeth and smile are restored in one day

TDC Smile in a Day is an advanced, less invasive dental implant treatment with much reduced treatment time – and only one surgical visit.

Unlike traditional implant methods that can take many months and multiple surgical procedures (e.g. extractions, bone graft surgery), TDC Smile in a Day is a same day “immediate loading” dental implant technique where your implants and a full set of fixed teeth can be placed on the same day.

Your teeth and a beautiful smile are restored in a matter of hours.

These first bespoke teeth are not removable by the patient.  They remain in place until we exchange them for your final, long-lasting set about three months later.

3. You’ll be treated by TDC’s specialist-led team – where quality matters

As with any surgical procedure, tooth replacement treatment should be carefully researched and it is important to choose the right dental team for you. We suggest asking your dental implant dentist questions so you can be re-assured that they have the skill and experience to meet your needs and requirements.

At TDC, we offer specialist-led clinical care using state-of-the art implant technology, techniques and equipment, over 25 years’ experience placing dental implants, award-winning patient care and consistently outstanding results.

We know that using the highest quality dental implants and materials gives the best short and long-term results. We never compromise on quality to cut costs.

These factors combine to give true peace of mind from start to finish.

So is there any difference between a general dentist and a specialist, especially when considering tooth replacement?

Any UK qualified dentist can legally place dental implants, regardless of how recently or often they perform the procedure.

However, periodontists are dentists that specialise in the area of dentistry that is to do with the roots and bone surrounding the teeth, and the placement of dental implants. They are therefore essentially experts in this field, with a proven track record of actual dental implant surgery.

Our Lead Surgeon, Dr Michael Zybutz, is a registered General Dental Council Specialist Periodontist with over 25 years’ experience placing dental implants.

He is the only specialist dentist in the UK who is accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).

4. It’s a virtually pain-free procedure – ideal for nervous patients

Patients are often amazed that they experience little or no pain during or after their Smile in a Day dental implant procedure.

Most opt for conscious sedation, so they are awake during implant placement surgery but feel totally relaxed and remember little about the procedure. Any minor discomfort is treatable with medication such as ibuprofen and paracetamol.

5. You’ll be able to eat, taste and enjoy any food you want again

Your new teeth function just like natural teeth – unlike eating with dentures which can move in your mouth, your ability to bite and chew normally is restored.

We advise taking it slowly whilst you get used to your new teeth – and once you have your final set placed, delicious steaks, juicy apples and crunchy bread can all be enjoyed without a second thought.

As your palate is not covered by a denture, people who previously wore false teeth are able to rediscover the taste of their food.

6. You’ll have a smile you love, confidence is restored

We work very closely with you to get the aesthetics and appearance of your smile exactly how you want it – the perfect tooth shape, size and colour.

As your first bespoke replacement teeth are placed on the day of surgery (Smile Restoration Day), you leave with a natural looking smile you can really be proud of.

Many of our patients tell us their confidence and self-esteem are instantly regained.

Plus, the structure of your face is restored, making you look younger.

“Since I’ve had my teeth done, I feel more alive. I have much more confidence in myself. I’m able to talk to people more and I don’t cover my mouth or turn my head away now.”

7. No more pain caused by loose or missing teeth

Bleeding gums, dental pain and discomfort are a thing of the past once you have well-placed dental implants.

One of the key benefits of dental implants is that all infections are removed during the procedure so you’ll have healthy gums again.

Your oral health is restored.

Your new teeth are carefully crafted to fit you perfectly and because they are fixed, they do not move about and irritate your gums as dentures can.

8. No more inconvenient, uncomfortable false teeth

Unlike dentures, your new teeth fixed on dental implants do not need to be removed to be cleaned at night or after eating.

They stay in place 24 hours a day and they are cared for just like natural teeth.

Just remember that it is important to maintain a good at-home dental hygiene routine.

If your new teeth are well cared for they can last a lifetime.

And, unlike dentures, your new teeth on implants will not cause you embarrassment or discomfort by slipping and rubbing – a problem that is often experienced by denture wearers.

9. The majority of tooth-loss cases can be successfully treated – bone grafts are rarely needed

At TDC we routinely treat even the most complex cases of tooth loss, gum disease and bone loss.

In fact, most of our patients require at least one full arch (upper or lower jaw) restoration – often both.

Often these patients have been incorrectly told by their own dentist that they don’t have enough bone in their jaw for dental implants, or that they are just not suitable for implants.

The advanced same-day dental implant technique that we use means that, in most cases, the need for bone grafts and sinus lifts is eliminated.

Occasionally a patient has specific dental needs and may require additional treatment such as zygomatic (cheekbone) implants.

TDC are one of the few dentists in the UK with the skill and experience to offer this procedure.

And even when zygomatic implants are required, the procedure can still be done in a single day.

TDC Smile in a Day really does offer a life-changing dental option to people who have given up hope of a fixed solution.

10. Less expensive than traditional dental implant solutions

Private dental treatments, especially advanced and highly skilled procedures such as same-day dental implants, are a significant investment in your overall health and well-being.

However, same-day implants are often less expensive than conventional implant solutions in the long run as only one surgical intervention is required, rather than multiple procedures and repeated treatment costs that build up over time.

At TDC, our Smile in a Day prices are all inclusive with no hidden, unexpected costs popping up during the course of treatment.

This means that our patients are fully aware of their financial outlay before treatment begins.

We also offer payment plans to suitable patients to help spread your dental implant cost.

TDC Smile in a Day is an award-winning tooth replacement treatment that has restored functioning teeth and beautiful smiles to thousands of patients.

Why not read their stories and reviews – nothing tells you more about the treatment and dental implant care that you will receive at TDC Implant Centres.
