Dr Antonia Paolella trained in the, at the time pioneering, technique of ‘same day teeth’ some ten years ago in Lisbon with the groundbreaking surgeon, Dr Paolo Malo. Since then she has been regularly transforming and enhancing her patients quality and enjoyment of life in just one day!
Unsightly, loose or painful teeth and dentures are taken away in the morning and implants are placed. At the end of the day, beautiful, new teeth are fixed firmly to the implants and you go home- no-one need know!
How does it work?
1. First we need to assess your suitability for the procedure.
You may have previously been told the bone is unsuitable but, strategic positioning and angulation of the implants, even when most or all teeth have been lost or have a hopeless prognosis, it is usually possible.
Radiographs are essential at this stage and, if necessary, we can arrange for a CT scan.
2. Hopeless teeth are removed in an early morning session and a minimum of 4 implants in the lower jaw, or 6 implants in the upper jaw are placed.
3. A full arch reinforced acrylic bridge is constructed by our masterful technicians during the day and , at the end of the day, the completed bridge is attached to the implants.
