Last week, we had an exciting case. We had a patient who requested me to remove all of his upper teeth and wanted an immediate upper denture. This patient wanted to avoid a removable denture at all costs. So, we decided upon teeth in a day technique.
This took quite a bit of planning but the outcome was phenomenal. We took out all the upper teeth at one time and placed 6 implants. We inserted a temporary bridge the same day.
The patient walked out with a fixed temporary bridge and never had to wear a removable appliance. By the way, the patient was over the age of 80!
A few years ago, I would not have thought this was possible. It’s amazing the changes that are occurring in dentistry! We are proud to be a part of it. We will post some pictures soon.
