Full Arch Teeth-In-A-Single-Day surgery by Dr. Michael Kirsch
In this example, the time from beginning upper jaw surgery to the time the patient left the office with his new upper teeth was about four hours. We performed extraction of the teeth, placement of the dental implants and minor bone grafting under local anesthesia with Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas). The patient drove himself home. What the before and after photos do not show are the hours of planning and coordination between the oral surgeon (Dr. Michael Kirsch), restorative dentist (Dr. Joseph DalBon) and laboratory (Kuwata Pan). If the teeth are missing and no extractions are needed the treatment time is typically three hours. Most patients are back to work in two days with minimal swelling. Pain is typically managed with a combination of over-the-counter Motrin and Tylenol.
