This procedure is called "teeth in a day" and allows patients to transition from hopeless and non-restorable dentition to teeth attached to implants in one appointment without having to wear removable dentures. This patient had minimal swelling and discomfort after her procedure and was able to come back to her everyday life the next day. She wore her temporary bridges for 4 months. After 4 months permanent implant bridges were done in 2 appointments. Patient did not have to be numb for the fabrication of final bridges and there was no down time or recovery time.
