Dental implants could take time to place. After all, between the extraction of necessary teeth, the insertion of the implant post, and the restoration, for some the process could mean months. But what if we could offer a complete smile in one visit? In today’s blog, your Livonia, MI, dentist will discuss how we create and place Teeth In A Day!
The Dangers of Your Lost Teeth
When you lose a majority of your teeth, you may need more than a bridge. However, removable dentures tend to require replacement after only about five years, and there is also a risk of slippage. For a more secure option, one that last for a lifetime in some cases, we may suggest dental implants. By addressing your tooth loss with a secure replacement, you enjoy the ability to eat your favorite foods again, improve nutritional intake, and avoid an aged appearance.
The Dental Implant Benefits
Unlike removable dentures, dental implant secured ones can stay in place for decades to come, even a lifetime in some cases. Inserted into the jawbone, the post bonds with the bone tissue like natural roots, as they’re made from titanium, a biocompatible material. The bonding process, known as osseointegration, helps stimulate the growth of bone tissue to prevent the negative changes to smiles and facial structure that often follows tooth loss. We may suggest Teeth In A Day for those who have lost so many teeth that we may need to extract the remaining few to clear the way for a set of dentures. In addition, if you have a previously placed prosthetic, we could suggest a new smile in one visit. To assess your candidacy, our team will instead your smile with digital technology to gauge your oral health and the state of your gums and jawbone tissues. We then gather images and measurements to plan the creation of the prosthetic and guide the placement process.
Creating Teeth In A Day
First, we will extract any necessary teeth and gather detailed images. We will design and craft the prosthetic, and insert as few as four specially placed dental implants into the jaw. After we insert them, we attach abutments that connect the dentures. The entire process only takes one visit, so you leave with a complete smile and the ability to eat your favorite foods again once proper healing has occurred. If you have any questions about obtaining a new smile in only one visit, or about the benefits and maintenance of implant-secured dentures, then contact our team today.
