A new smile in just one day!

A new smile in just one day? YES!

Look for us in the October Issue of Good Housekeeping, Redbook and Women’s Day.

Meet the doctors who developed the revolutionary methods to make it happen.

The staff at world-renowned Prosthodontics Intermedica (or “Pi”) knows that a new, permanent smile is life changing -- and they offer it in just one day.

“We developed Teeth In A Day® 20 years ago and have been training doctors to offer it around the world ever since,” says Dr. Glenn Wolfinger, who pioneered the dental implant protocol with Dr. Thomas Balshi.

How it works: after a thorough examination and customized treatment plan, doctors remove diseased teeth and place anchors into the jawbone. A sophisticated laboratory team prepares temporary, non-removable teeth so that patients leave with a sturdy, natural-looking smile. Once the implants have fused to the natural bone, the permanent prostheses are positioned.

No Bone Solution™

Dental implants are vastly superior to dentures-aesthetically and functionally.

“In many cases, the constant rubbing of dentures causes the jawbone to retreat, requiring comprehensive preparation prior to placing implants,” explains Dr. Balshi. The customary answer is bone grafting, a risky, invasive process. Pi offers a better option.As seen in Redbook, Good Housekeeping and Women's Day

“The No Bone Solution™ is a zygomatic implant that combines computer-guided surgery with fixed prosthodontic rehabilitation,” says Dr. Balshi.

An advanced CT scanner gathers radiographic information in just seconds. “By recreating the patient’s skull virtually, we can guide the exact positioning of the implants,” says Dr. Wolfinger. “This approach is avant-garde, blending industry technology with dental medicine.”

The benefits are enormous,” adds Dr. Balshi. “It is drastically faster with less risk of infection. Pi is among only a few centers nationwide with this technology.”

The combination of No Bone Solution™ and Teeth In A Day® yields immediately functional teeth in a single procedure.

Treating the Whole Person

An exceptional experience begins the moment patients walk in: “We’ve created a welcoming ‘oasis’ to make patients feel comfortable. We want them to know we really care about them,” says Joanne Balshi, director of public relations.

Concludes Dr. James Bowers: “We love seeing patients leave with restored teeth and self-esteem.”

Hope for a Healthy Future

The affects of anorexia and bulimia nervosa are detrimental to teeth, and Pi Dental Center is passionate about helping these patients heal-physically and emotionally.

“Giving these patients a healthy mouth restores their ability to chew properly and gives them confidence,” says Dr. Balshi. “It jumpstarts the road to recovery.”
