Same Day Teeth on Implants

Full Arch Dental Implants

Removing your failing teeth and delivering a complete new set of implant supported teeth — Same Day

One day transformation, before and after

We have developed one of the “most advanced” processes for tooth replacement in the US – outlined below.

Our Process

We provide one of the most experienced Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons in Implant Dentistry in the Southeast. Dr. Loetscher has over 25 of years of experience doing full arch reconstructions, replacing completely missing dentitions to full dentitions with a complete new set of teeth.The combination of Dr. Loetscher‘s experience, surgical suites allowing you to be asleep during the procedure, and our in-house lab technician provide an immediate “New Set of Teeth” second to none

1. CONSULTATION

Your first visit we evaluate your teeth and face, take radiographs, and obtain digital records of your teeth and face.

  • We offer 2 options for your consultation:
    • A. Meet first with an Implant Treatment Coordinator: – This is complimentary. They will obtain radiographs including a CT scan, take photos, and determine if you are a candidate for full arch tooth replacement. They will give you a ballpark price for your treatment. Dr. Loetscher will then review the information, provide a more accurate fee. Prior to your procedure you will be scheduled for a pre-op visit with Dr. Loetscher.
    • B. Meet with Dr. Loetscher at your first visit. There will a consultation fee associated with this. He will spend some time reviewing your situation, your health history, and outline your treatment options. You will be provided with fee for your treatment. The number and type of implants required per arch will be discussed – typically 4-6 implants per arch. For people with little or no remaining bone – we may discuss how we treat this in a “Graftless” manner utilizing zygoma implants.

2. YOUR TREATMENT IS PLANNED, YOUR SMILE DESIGNED, AND SURGICAL GUIDES FABRICATED.

Smile Design

A variety of in house technologies allows patients a unique experience they can’t get anywhere else

Your new smile is pre-designed after your consultation appointment.

Existing Teeth and Digital Wax-up

Painless digital scans from an intra-oral video camera are loaded into our planning software. A new set of teeth are designed.

They are integrated into your face utilizing the “Face Hunter” piece of equipment cosmetic equipment from Italy, to maximize your smile into your lips and face.

We design “Organic Natural Smiles” — utilizing a library of people’s beautiful natural teeth — not lab designed teeth — that provide the most beautiful natural and confident smile.

Planning your implant placement

Next Dr. Loetscher and his technician design the ideal placement of your implants for maximum esthetics and ease of cleaning your new teeth.

Digital Treatment Planning

Your implants will be placed via digitally guided surgery — so your new teeth can be fit your face, be beautiful, and Strong

Guide Fabrication

Guide Fabrication

Pre-made guides, much like a woodworker’s jig are manufactured pre-operatively. We do these in our in-house lab, where Dr. Loetscher and our lab technician personally design each splint.

These guides allow extremely accurate surgery. This accuracy is important because it:

  1. Allows your prosthesis to be cleansable and easy to clean
  2. Allows your prosthesis to be strong
  3. Allows your prosthesis to have access screw holes that any dentist in the world could remove and clean or repair if ever needed without harming the prosthesis. This is very important
  4. Allows improved surgical success and healing
Guided Prosthesis Accurate Surgery

Achieving Beautiful Esthetics:  

We employ the “Natural Smile Design” developed by Dr. Christian Coachman.  Utilizing a “Smile Library” of beautiful smiles – we replicate these natural teeth exactly how they are in your new smile.  This eliminates the artificial look of fake teeth.  Natural teeth have irregular bumps and slight irregularities that reflect light in a more natural way, allowing them to look real and natural.  Also referred to an “Organic Smile”.  This is a big deal in achieving a beautiful new smile. 

3. YOUR SURGICAL PROCEDURE

You are fully asleep (general anesthesia) we remove your teeth and place your new implants. While asleep, we digitally record and scan your implant positions.

Our lab then mills a beautiful fixed, temporary bridge, provided to you within a few hours. This bridge is screwed very solidly onto your implants. It provides immediate beautiful esthetics and function.

You wear this provisional bridge for the next 3-6 months while your bone fully bonds to your titanium implants (osseointegration). After this period — your dentist delivers the final bridge you will wear for the rest of your life.

Milled Immediate Bridges

4. Your Final Teeth

Finals usually are placed 3-6 months later. They will be made from a permanent material, meant to be lifelong. Either Zirconia, porcelain, or other modern ceramic.

Why wait 3-6 months?  

It is most ideal to wait several months after your implant surgery to allow your gums and your bone to remodel after extractions and implant placement.  Typically the height of your gum shrinks somewhat in the first 6-8 weeks.  By obtaining new records after this waiting period – your new set of teeth are custom fabricated to fit most ideally to your gums.  This facilitates optimal speech, esthetics, and cleansibility.

Goals & Planning Decisions

Goals

1. Provide a prosthesis that is very long-lasting, ideally lasting a lifetime.

2. Making your prosthesis extremely esthetic – beautiful – and matching your face.  

3. Making  your prosthesis hygienic so you can clean it and maintain it.

4. Providing you with a full arch of teeth.  At least 12 teeth. Some people with larger bite forces and literally larger mouths will need their second molars as well (14 teeth).

Decisions 

The following factors influence your treatment.  

1. Then number of implants per arch.

  • This will range from 4 to 6.  
    • 6 provides the most support, allows second molars, and sometimes 6 are needed to stabilize your prosthesis prior to implant integration.  
    • 4 implants may be easier to clean & may provide some cost savings.  4 implants shortens the dental arch slightly in some situations.  

2. Do we need Zygomatic or Pterygoid implants in the upper jaw to eliminate bone grafting?  (see below).

  • We now have “Graftless” solutions where we can place implants into the zygoma – a bone underneath your cheek.  The beauty of this it eliminates most bone grafting, and allows immediate teeth even when there is almost no bone left in your jaw.  Pterygoid implants can also be used – they engage a bone in the very back of your upper jaw.  

3. What material will your final teeth be made out of? 

Modern prosthetic materials are a ceramic type material such as zirconia or E-Max (lithium disilicate).  They are highly esthetic, remain beautiful without staining throughout your life, and are very durable. This is mostly a decision we are your doctor will make for you, or at least a recommendation.  Which materials are dependent upon implant position – so we consider this when doing our pre-surgical design work.  

Zygomatic Implants (Graftless Surgery)

No Bone? – No problem!

Fortunately – we have excellent solutions for people that have lost most of their bone in their upper jawbone (maxilla).

We utilize the Zygoma to place implants – 1 to 2 per side to facilitate support for your upper prosthesis.  This can be done in conjunction with traditional implants or 2 zygomatic implants per side.  Sometimes with a more posterior implant (Pterygoid Implant).  This allows us to provide immediate implant supported teeth the day of your surgery.  

Dr. Loetscher is proficient in this advanced technique.  Below are some of his patients.  

One Zygomatic implant per side:

2 zygomatic implants per side (Quad Zygoma)

1 Pterygoid implant per side:
