Am I a candidate for “Teeth in a Day?”

What should I expect if I undergo a East Lyme “Teeth in a Day” treatment?

Once you are sedated, any remaining teeth will be removed, and a series of titanium implants will be placed into the bone beneath the surface of your gums. You will then be fitted with temporary prosthetics that will remain in place until your dentist determines that you can be fitted with your permanent teeth.
Will I need to follow any special instructions after I receive my “Teeth in a Day?”
You may experience minimal soreness and discomfort in the days following your procedure. Your East Lyme dentist will instruct you on any special care instructions or restrictions that you may need to abide by in the hours, days and weeks following your treatment.
