When you have gaps in your smile due to tooth loss, you could benefit from dental implants, or even implant dentures. While this process can sometimes take multiple visits, we could offer qualifying patients Teeth-In-A-Day! In today’s blog, find out how your Livonia, MI, dentist can address tooth loss in only one day.
Don’t Ignore Tooth Loss
When you begin to lose your natural teeth, let us know right away. Missing teeth are linked to misalignment, painful jaw joint disorders like TMJ disorder and bruxism, trouble eating and speaking clearly, and even an aged appearance. Even if you’re lost all of your teeth and time has passed, we can still help you obtain a complete smile, often in only one visit.
Do You Qualify?
To begin, we will use digital technology to take a clear and detailed look at your smile, assessing the severity of your tooth loss and identifying the underlying oral health issues behind it. From there, we can recommend treatment, and decide whether you qualify for dental implants in one day. We have a number of options to address minor or severe tooth loss, for a new smile that looks and functions like a natural one, and is ready to last for many years to come.
The process starts with the dentist removing the remaining teeth from your smile with an extraction. Afterward, we take detailed digital images and use them to guide the new roots into place. Once we insert your dental implant posts, we will attach abutments to them. The final step is to attach the custom-made denture to your posts and abutments. Your new dentists will look natural, and being secured with dental implants means they can last for decades to come, or even a lifetime. Traditionally, there is a period of months between implant placement and the attachment of a denture, but we can often help people leave with a complete smile after one visit. For many, this is a more economical and cost-effective solution to missing teeth.
If you have any questions about how we address major tooth loss in one visit, then contact our team today. A visit now means you put your remaining 2021 dental insurance benefits or health savings funds to good use before they expire in December. You can also obtain a full smile before the hectic holiday season makes your schedule much busier.
