Permanent Teeth In A Day

Same day teeth and same day smiles are both terms that have been used to describe this exciting dental implants treatment that allows you to have a new and beautiful smile in just one day!

Am I Suitable For Same-Day Teeth?

You may be suitable for this treatment if you have loose and uncomfortable dentures affecting the quality of your life, have severe tooth loss, have loose teeth requiring extracting and restorations that are failing

What Is The Same Day Teeth Treatment Process?

Preparation Stage : The first stage will include impressions and radiographs taken of your mouth, which will be used to create an exact replica of your jaw. We will then create a removable denture with the intended teeth setup. A CT scan may be required which will help us identify if there is enough bone for successful dental implants placement.

Implant Placement With Restoration : On the day of the surgery implants will be placed under local anaesthetic or IV sedation, if requested. After implant placement there will be a three-month healing period where the implants will integrate with the jawbone before the final restoration is fitted. With same day smiles we will safely fit the final prosthesis (restoration) to the implants so you will have beautiful teeth in just one day!

Same Day Smiles Aftercare : The aftercare of the treatment is a very important stage. It is important that you attend a check up/assessment to ensure that your new teeth and implants are taking well to their new setting and if there are any minor modifications that need to be made (to accommodate any healing changes in your mouth). The exact time frame of your checkup appointment will vary and we will advise you when we need to see you again.

SmartFix™ Concept

 Implants-6dWhat Are SmartFix™ Dental Implants?

Ankylos SmartFix™ Concept is a dental implant system from DENTSPLY. This is a new revolutionary system that provides a prosthetic solution on tilted dental implants, a technique, which is where a fixed bridge or denture components are fitted onto 4-6 dental implants in one day and are not removable by the patient. This is sometimes known as “fixed teeth in a day”.

Implants-6e Implants-6fNormally, in order to replace all missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw a patient is required to have 6 – 10 dental implants. With this system two implants at the back of the jaw are placed at an angle of 30 degrees enabling longer implants to be placed in this area for greater stability. These 6 implants are then braced together by a fixed bridge, which is screwed into the implants and held permanently in place. Unlike an implant-retained denture the “SmartFix™” denture can only be removed by a dentist and so is as close to having your natural teeth, as you will get.

You can arrive in the morning and leave in the afternoon with a permanent set of new teeth. During your consultation we will discuss the pros and cons of your treatment options so that you can make an informed decision of the treatment that is best suited for your individual situation.

Why would I need Smart Fix?

If you have missing teeth or your denture is starting to fail, then the Ankylos SmartFix™ system could be the ideal dental implants treatment for you.

What are the benefits of Ankylos Smart Fix?

With the SmartFix™ dental implant system you will receive the following benefits:

  • Avoiding critical anatomical areas: Tilted implants can largely avoid critical anatomical areas and for example, could avoid the need for sinus floor elevation
  • Stable prosthetic fit: The area supporting the prosthesis covers a larger area than normal implants will because of the angle caused by the tilted implants, which ensures that the local bone is thus utilized optimally.
  • Delicate abutment head: The abutment head allows optimum freedom in terms of height and diameter. Secure handling: Each abutment will already be premounted onto a seating instrument that offers incredible flexibility, especially when there is restricted space. Positioning: There is free 360 degree positioning have the implant and balance base abutments. Sub-crestal placement: This will largely avoid any inflammatory response to the peri-implant tissue (important for implant survival)

The Ankylos SmartFixTM Process at Best Implants – 4 Simple Steps !


Study models and radiographs will be made of the patients jaw. A template of the jaw will be constructed for the CT scan (if required). CT scan will be taken to help the dentist plan the dental implant surgery (if necessary). CT scan will show bone quality, anatomic important structures etc.

Implant Placement

The patient will be administered intravenous (IV) sedation or local anesthetic and the implants will be placed with the assistance of a template or the CT scan results as an even more accurate guide

Provisional Restoration

On the day of the implant placement a full arch fixed prosthesis will be attached to the dental implants (so the patient is never without any teeth during the treatment)

Permanent Restoration

The implants will be allowed to integrate with the jawbone and heal. This process will normally take around 3-6 months. After the healing period (roughly 3 months), the final restoration is fitted. Final solutions include both fixed and removable prostheses. Fixed solutions include an implant bridge with porcelain or acrylic crowns cemented to the bridge framework, removable solutions include Overdentures on an implant bar attached by means of an attachment system
