Teeth in a day is when you don't have teeth and then you get the denture supported implant. The implants are holding dentures in place and that can be done in one day. However, there are lots of preparations involved from the dentist's point of view, from your gums and bone, and the lab work.
Before that we have to do the CBCT which measures the depth and the height of the jaw bone. That way, we can let you know if you are a good candidate for teeth in a day.
Those who are not good candidates for teeth in a day will have to get a regular denture with the top and the bottom.
The pros are that it's done in one day and you don't have to wait. The cons are that it's expensive and requires maintenance, which is very important.
