Teeth in a Day – Full Jaw Implants Bethesda and Washington DC
Because of Dr. Puterman‘s 3-year residency training in implant dentistry beyond his traditional periodontics training, he has a special expertise in managing advanced implant cases. He sees many Bethesda and Washington DC patients who need to replace a full jaw of teeth with implants, whether it be because of missing teeth and loose dentures, or broken/decayed teeth. Lots of people have a fear of dentists and a fear of being judged once things have “gone too far”. We love these cases because it’s incredible what a little bit of patience will do and it’s very rewarding when we see the transformation in your health, personality, and self-esteem once proper health is restored.
Full jaw implants are commonly referred to as “Teeth-in-a-Day”, “All-On-4”, or hybrid teeth, although they all mean the same thing. Depending on the of teeth you desire, we can use anywhere from 2-8 implants to support the new teeth. Generally speaking, the more implants used, the more natural looking and functioning the new teeth will be. In most Bethesda and Washington DC patients, 6 implants are sufficient to achieve natural-looking teeth that you do not remove.
During the initial consultation, we will listen to your wants and needs, as well as evaluate your existing condition. We may need x-rays including a 3D scan of your jaws in order to assess the amount of bone that you have. If you have had this 3D X-ray taken at another office and are coming for a 2nd opinion, we recommend that you bring it to your consultation.
Give us a call and see for yourself how different we are. To schedule your teeth in a day consultation with Dr. Puterman, call our office in the Bethesda and Washington DC area at (301) 652-0939.
