Welcome to Cunning Dental Group! You’ve taken your first steps to find the best long term solution to fix your teeth. It is so important to get to know the patient and be able to examine them and walk them through the process first. On your first visit to Cunning Dental Group you will be whisked through reception and into a cosmetic care operatory.
Upon making your appointment for your exam, you will meet with the Examining Dentist, Oral Surgeon, Prosthodontist and Restorative Dentists to gather all the information they need for a comprehensive dental treatment plan. They will record your existing dental condition, whether you still have teeth or wear dentures.
The most advanced 3D CT scan, x-rays, jaw relation records, impressions and photos are all done in the office that same day. No more having to go to multiple offices and taking time off from your busy schedule to run around town. The results will provide critical information about the anatomical structure of your mouth including bone, sinuses and nerves. We can then determine if you are a candidate for the Permanent Teeth in 1 Day procedure.
Using the latest 3D computer simulation we can position the dental implants on the precision location on the jawbone. This allows for optimal support of the replacement teeth. Once a plan is formulated, your surgery is scheduled.
Your next visit is your surgery. Tooth extractions, bone shaping and dental implant placement can all be done simultaneously while you sleep comfortably with IV sedation. A few hours later your treatment is complete and you can go home to enjoy your new smile! Patients leave feeling almost back to normal soon after the procedure with very little, if any, pain.
Acrylic replacement teeth are needed to facilitate initial healing. All dental implants require a few months of healing time to fuse to the bone. While you may not be able to eat that steak on day one, you do leave with a delicious, homemade soup. A small but comforting gesture that proves time and time again how much Cunning Dental Group cares about our patients. Our team ensures you receive the best quality of care throughout the entire process.
For most patients, the provisional teeth stay in the mouth for the first 3-4 months. It’s a good idea to eat soft foods on the teeth and avoid chewy or tough foods. You want the swelling to go down and the dental implants to fuse to the bone. While you are healing you will enjoy your new teeth since they look great and because they are fixed you will start to get use to having teeth again.
When the dental implants have fused to the bone and the swelling has dissipated the all on 4 dental implants team remove your provisional teeth and replace them with your final permanent teeth. These are stronger and more durable that will fit more precisely since your gums have healed. The new permanent teeth will function and look just like natural teeth.
