You spend much of life taking care of your smile in order to preserve your healthy, natural teeth. When something does occur, the best advice your dentist gives you is to seek treatment for it as soon as possible – usually, to improve your chances of saving your natural tooth structure. Because of this, losing one or more teeth can be devastating to many people, both to their self-confidence and the state of their oral health. Fortunately for many patients, dental implants can provide a highly lifelike replacement for their lost teeth, allowing them to regain their confidence and their healthy, beautiful smiles.
What does implant treatment require?
Receiving a dental implant-supported restoration isn’t the same as receiving a traditional restoration. Unlike conventional bridges or dentures, those that are supported by dental implants require separate placement of their implant posts. The implant placement procedure is the basis of what makes dental implants work – each post is inserted into your jawbone, which then heals to the posts’ biocompatible surfaces. This creates a supportive system for your replacement tooth or teeth that closely mimics the healthy roots of your natural teeth.
Can I complete treatment at the same office?
One of the aspects of implant treatment that differ from traditional tooth replacement is that conventional treatment can require multiple visits to different dental health offices. For example, patients often had to have their implant posts placed at one location, and their permanent restorations affixed to the implant posts at another office. However, our office is one of few dental health offices that can perform both implant placement and restoration all under one roof, making your overall implant treatment much more convenient. This also allows us to create highly precise and durable temporary restorations that you can wear as soon as your dental implant posts are in place.
What if I want my restoration sooner?
The ability to complete the entire dental implant process in one office is key to our ability to providing high-quality Teeth in a Day. Using advanced technology and dental materials in our in-house dental lab, we can design and craft your temporary restoration on the spot. After we’ve placed the implant posts within your dental ridge, we can secure the temporary restoration the same day. The temporary restoration will allow you to enjoy your new smile and improved bite function sooner, while you wait for your permanent restoration to be completed and secured in place.
