Dear patients.

We are happy to say that we are now open and operating under our full schedule.

COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care, and we deeply appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to help control the spread of the coronavirus.

Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we opened with carefully planned and revised office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members. Our own families are also patients here, so you can be assured that we’ll be taking care of you just as well as we’ll be taking care of them.

For your peace of mind, the measures we are taking to provide a safe dental treatment experience include, but are not limited to, the following:

Upon Your Arrival at the Office

●     Patients will be screened BEFORE treatment and temperatures will be checked. Any patients showing signs of a fever or other symptoms of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

●     ONLY patients will be allowed entry into the office. Parents and other family members will be asked to wait outside whenever possible.

●     Patients are asked to wait in their cars or outside the office until their scheduled appointment time.

●     The waiting area chairs will be spaced apart to allow for 6 feet of distancing.

●     We will ask that you continue to practice social distancing measures in common areas of the office, including the front desk.

●     The front door and the door between the waiting area and operatories will be propped open all day.

●     There will be no physical contact with patients with the exception of treatment.

During Treatment

●     All rooms will be COMPLETELY sterilized before each patient is seated, and public areas, including restrooms, will be cleaned and sterilized frequently throughout the day.

●     All operatories have high-volume air filtration and we have installed a whole office purification system. This system will kill the Covid virus along with other contaminates

●     Our team will STRICTLY follow guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA, and ADA in regards to personal protective equipment (PPE) and office sterilization.

●     During patient care, goggles or face shields will be worn by everyone and changed between patients.

●     All surfaces that came in contact with the patient will be wiped with disinfectant including the patient chair.

Checking Out After Your Appointment

●    We will be requesting prepayments when we know the amount of payment which will expidite your visit 

●     All efforts will be made to complete scheduling in the back of the office so you can leave without stopping at the front desk

We are proceeding with an abundance of caution, but we want you to feel as confident as we do that any visit you make to our office will be a safe one.

We also realize that many of you have been impacted financially during this outbreak, and we have solutions to keep dental care affordable for you and your family.

To discuss these payment options, schedule an appointment, or ask us any questions you may have about your next visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 757-473-8482

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Teeth in a Day

Missing teeth affect your smile and health in many ways, but dentures are often uncomfortable and can shift at embarrassing moments.

Teeth in a Day can immediately replace loose, broken, or missing teeth with an implant-supported restoration that looks natural and stays put.

So why is Teeth in a Day such a great option?

With Teeth in a Day, You Are Never without Teeth

Secure Temporary Teeth after One Appointment

The Teeth in a Day procedure allows your dentist to attach temporary teeth at the same time as your implant placement. You wear your temporaries throughout the healing process.

Easy, Streamlined Care

Everything from extraction to restoration happens in a single day. If your remaining teeth are worn, damaged, or loose, your dentist can remove and replace them with your implant-supported temporaries all in one appointment.

Shorter, Less Disruptive Recovery Time

With Teeth in a Day, the recovery period is less disruptive than that of traditional implants. You can avoid spending months without teeth waiting for your implants to heal.

But Does It Cost More Than Regular Implants?

Teeth in a Day costs about the same as replacing your teeth with a regular implant-supported denture. The final cost will depend on a couple of factors, including how many implants you need and the quality of your denture. A full implant-supported denture can cost anywhere from $7,000 to $90,000. The average cost is usually about $34,000. 

If your dentist performs the All-on-4® technique and uses only four implants to support your denture, your price may fall into the lower end of the range. However, there are a lot of other factors that can impact the final price of Teeth in a Day, including the type of temporary restoration you need.

Fully Restore Your Smile in a Single Procedure

Attend a Pre-Procedure Examination

During this appointment, you will meet with your dentist and finalize your treatment plan. They will likely take impressions of your smile to create your temporary restoration.

Undergo Implant Placement

Your surgeon will embed small titanium dental implants into your jawbone to support your new teeth. 

Receive Your Temporary Teeth

On the same day as your implant placement procedure, your doctor will attach a set of temporary teeth to wear during the healing process.

Give Your Implants Time to Heal

For most patients, it takes three to six months for dental implants to fuse with the surrounding bone tissue. For the first couple of weeks, you may need to eat a soft food diet.

Replace Your Temporaries

Once your implants have fully healed, your dentist will replace your temporary teeth with your new permanent smile. 

There Are Many Ways to Replace Your Teeth, But Results May Vary Widely

The most common alternative for Teeth in a Day is traditional dentures. Dentures are often much less expensive than replacing your teeth with dental implants. However, they do not provide the same security as implant-supported options. A traditional implant procedure is also available for patients who want to replace most or all of their teeth. The results are similar to Teeth in a Day, though you may be without teeth during the healing period.

With Teeth in a Day, you can go from missing teeth to a fully restored smile in a single procedure. Schedule an appointment with your dentist to find out more about restoring your smile in just one day.
