Transcript

So my name's Lois Olberding. I'm a general dentist in Lincoln Nebraska. I'm a restorative dentist that works with Dr. Glenn in the restoration of dental implants. I've known Dr. Glenn for approximately 15 years. We were classmates in dental school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. I refer my patients to Dr. Glenn for basically all of my patient oral surgery needs. Whether it's simple extractions, third molar removal, implants, pathology surgeries, anything related to oral surgery. Teeth in a day is a concept of giving patients fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure that lasts about an hour. That's collaboration between the general dentist, the restorative dentist, and the oral surgeon. The candidate for this procedure would be any patient requiring full-arched tooth replacement, whether it's patients with existing teeth that require extraction or any dentalist patience, meaning a patient without teeth, or a patient that's completely missing teeth. The recovery process for teeth in a day is very similar to that of a wisdom tooth removal. It's a fallow up appointment with not only the oral surgeon but also the restorative dentist to check to make sure that the prosthesis that was placed is functioning properly.
