If you have missing teeth, you may be experiencing discomfort when eating or talking, a lack of confidence, and worries about the rest of your dental health. Dr. Stewart and his team in Livonia, MI, can help ease your anxiety with a dental implant. With the advancements in dental technologies today, you may even be able to have your new smile within one day. In today’s blog, we’re here to tell you all about the benefits of same-day replacement.
Advanced Technology Allows For A Faster Process
This process is like the regular procedure but can be processed with less time. At your initial consultation, Dr. Stewart will use advanced wireless technology that allows for your impressions to be taken digitally. If you are found to be a good candidate for a same-day procedure, he will send the measurements of your impression to the lab to begin creating your new tooth. A good candidate for this option is someone with good bone density, healthy oral tissue, and no other health complications.
At your appointment, we will remove the remaining part of the tooth. If you have dentures or a bridge currently, this will be taken out as well to be replaced. To make this experience more comfortable for you, we can offer different methods of sedation. Once the tooth is removed from the area, the surface will be prepped and cleaned. There, your permanent fixture will be added, and you can enjoy your new smile. Your oral care with this implant will be the same as before. Be sure to brush and floss daily and see your dentist every six months for your checkups.
A Same-Day Implant Can Be Life Changing
In the past, a permanent replacement for your missing tooth could be a month-long process. Patients would need a consultation, an appointment for the impression to be taken, the waiting period for the structure to come in, and then finally the implant could be placed. By reducing the time for a new structure to be placed, you will be saved from the complications of a missing tooth.
Having gaps in your smile can cause difficulty chewing and biting. This can make eating food a struggle and lower your quality of life. You may also experience speech problems when you are missing a tooth, which can lead to self-consciousness. If the tooth is not replaced in a reasonable amount of time, you could even begin to experience weakness in the jawbone. Being able to address the problem with a simple consultation and appointment can improve your quality of life and confidence.
