Straumann® Pro-Arch (Teeth-in-a-Day)
Straumann ProArch is an advanced implant solution for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth. Depending on your specific dental situation, as few as four dental implants can be utilized to support a complete set of upper and/or lower teeth. This treatment option provides increased patient satisfaction and comfort when compared to conventional dentures which are often the first solution that comes to mind for replacing multiple damaged or missing teeth. Dentures sometimes cause more problems than the missing teeth. Even after numerous dental visits to get their dentures fixed, many denture wearers still remain frustrated and in pain. Straumann ProArch is a solutions for replacing ill-fitting dentures with a set of natural-looking, fully functioning set of teeth.
Depending on your individual situation, temporary teeth may be connected to your new dental implants within 24 hrs. In this case, you can go back to living a normal life right after surgery. Once the dental implants have completely healed a permanent set of teeth will be placed.
What is the Process:
Initial Consultation: A complete exam, including a CT scan and review of your medical history will be performed in order to determine if you are a candidate
Planning Phase: Utilizing advanced software and the detailed images from your CT scan Dr Stopperich can identify the best implant location and position
Procedure: Placement of dental implants. This may be performed simultaneously with tooth removal
Replacement teeth: Your temporary replacement teeth may be secured to the implants that day. The final replacement will be attached after the dental implants have healed.
Drs. Stopperich & Koutras work very closely with your dentist and the dental lab throughout the entire process. This “team” concept is vital for a successful outcome and ultimately a happy patient.
