Teeth-In-A-Day Implants in Encinitas, CA

Rediscover Your Smile’s Beauty With Teeth-In-A-Day


If you’re missing most of your teeth, or need to have multiple tooth extractions, then dental implants may be the perfect solution to restore your smile’s appearance and functionality. However, instead of replacing each individual tooth with a dental implant, our Teeth-In-A-Day procedure can make the experience even more convenient by using just a few strategically placed implants to permanently secure a new set of artificial teeth.

Our restorative dentists at McElroy Smiles By Design have numerous years of experience improving patients’ lives with Teeth-In-A-Day dental implants in Encinitas, CA.

What is Teeth-In-A-Day?

Teeth-in-a-Day is a revolutionary treatment designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth for patients in just one visit to our Encinitas, CA dentist. Unlike traditional dental implants, you won’t need to wait months for your restoration to be complete. Dr. McElroy can provide you with a temporary fixture on the same day for your convenience after your initial appointment. 

Benefits of Teeth-In-A-Day

The greatest benefits of the Teeth-In-A-Day procedure from our Encinitas dental office are the confidence and functionality you’ll be able to enjoy shortly after your procedure is finished.

Discretion: Teeth-in-a-Day will allow your smile to look and act just like your normal teeth. There’s no need to take them out and soak them as with dentures. Simply brush and floss them like you would your real teeth!

Powerful Chewing Capability: You’ll be able to enjoy all the foods that people with dentures typically have to avoid – foods like popcorn, steak, and even corn on the cob!

Minimal Discomfort: Because you only need four total implants instead of a dental implant for each missing tooth, your overall healing process will proceed more quickly and comfortably.

Teeth-In-A-Day Procedure

The first step to your new teeth is a consultation with Dr. McElroy. During this appointment, he’ll examine your teeth to determine your candidacy for Teeth-In-A-Day. This is also the best chance for you to ask any questions you may have about the procedure as well as your choice of sedation.

During your Teeth-In-A-Day procedure, one of our dentists places four titanium implants into your jaw. Your bone will gradually envelop these implants and secure them into place just as if they were your natural teeth roots. Your full set of new artificial teeth is then held in place by these implants.

Candidacy for Teeth-In-A-Day

One major advantage of Teeth-in-a-Day is that patients don’t require the same amount of jawbone density required for single-tooth implants. Teeth-in-a-Day posts are placed in strategic locations where your jawbone is the strongest, so you can enjoy an instant implant placement. Patients who don’t qualify for traditional implant solutions or have most of their teeth missing can benefit greatly from this placement technique. 


Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Teeth-in-a-Day cost?

The cost of dental implant placements depends on the details of your treatment. Dr. McElroy will provide you with a cost estimate of your Teeth-in-a-Day procedure at your initial consultation. We recommend contacting your dental insurance provider beforehand to learn what your plan will cover.

Our office accepts most insurances, and we’re proud to offer in-house financing options to help you cover out-of-pocket expenses insurance won’t cover. We also accept payment through CareCredit, a third-party company that offers low and zero-interest plans to fit your budget. 

How long does Teeth-in-a-Day take?

The Teeth-in-a-Day procedure can take anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes to complete, depending on the details of your personalized care plan. This time will vary depending on how many implant posts you’re receiving and the current condition of your oral health. Dr. McElroy will be able to provide you with a treatment timeline during your initial consultation.

How long does Teeth-in-a-Day last?

Like other implant restorations, your Teeth-in-a-Day implants can last 20 years to a lifetime. The tooth restoration will need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years. You’ll need to give your Teeth-in-a-Day implants the same care as your natural teeth. Be sure to brush at least twice a day, floss at least once a day (preferably before bedtime), rinse between meals and visit our dental office every six months for regular dental exams.
