Dental implants offer people a tooth replacement option that is long-lasting, and one that looks completely natural too. While at one time the process of placing and restoring your new tooth could mean multiple procedure and months of time, your Fort Worth, TX, dentist can provide a new smile in only one day.
Preparing Your New Smile
A dental implant is a post made from titanium, a biocompatible material that the body recognizes as natural tooth structure. This enables the posts to bond with jawbone like natural roots, a process known as osseointegration. First, we will examine your smile to assess the strength of your jawbone tissues. Unfortunately, following tooth loss you could lose mass and density in the jawbone, which impacts whether your smile can support new roots. If this is the case, then we can rebuild your smile with ridge augmentation and sinus lifts, which leaves your smile ready to accept new teeth.
Placing Dental Implants
Using advanced digital scanning and imaging technology, we can plan and guide the placement process. Ensuring each post is inserted into the smile at an angle that supports new teeth and stimulates the growth of jawbone tissue. You then enjoy teeth that don’t need to be replaced every five years or so like removable dentures or traditional bridges, instead you have new teeth that last for decades to come, possibly even a lifetime, with proper care and attention. If you have remaining teeth that are severely decayed, diseased, or infected, then we can extract them same-day to prepare your smile for implant replacement. Now, typically once the posts have been placed the patient must wait three to four months, or maybe even more, to receive the restorations that complete your smile. Fortunately, we can accomplish these same-day for many patients!
Restorations and Prosthetics
The restorations are what people see when you smile, so we take care to ensure they blend with your smile and offer a lifelike appearance. To restore them same-day, we use CAD/CAM technology to design and mill them onsite in one visit. We use strong and lifelike materials, such as ceramic, which absorbs daily bite forces and provide a natural looking appearance. We then attach them same-day to your posts, so you leave with a complete smile. If you have any questions about addressing tooth loss, or about the benefits of same-day implant technology, then contact our team today. Let’s start 2021 on the road toward a full smile again!
