Bar Attachment Denture (Teeth in a Day):
Bar Attachment Denture, also known as Teeth in a Day, is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists replace a full set of teeth. Most often, dentures are painful, inconvenient and unstable therefore making it difficult to chew the foods you once enjoyed. The concept of the Bar Attachment Denture is to replace the patients missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by only four dental implants which helps reduce treatment time and cost. The solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume. Typically, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day of surgery, later to be replaced with a permanent bridge by the general dentist. This has become more commonly sought by those looking to improve their quality of life without the hassle of a denture. As always, Dr. Hart must first consult with the patient to verify they have adequate bone in order to be a candidate for successful results. In addition, close coordination and planning will be completed with the patients dentist.
Bar Attachment Denture advantages:
- A cost effective solution. Your new replacement teeth require only 4 implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is lowered.
- Reduced need for bone grafting. The special angled placement of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, often making bone grafting unnecessary.
- Faster treatment and healing time. Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion.
Scientifically proven and documented. Bar Attachment Denture is supported by good clinical outcomes from studies over a decade with favorable results.
