Speed and efficiency are important factors when it comes to receiving restorative dental treatment, and advanced placement methodology makes achieving these factors much more plausible. Indeed, time is not on your side when experiencing a concern such as severe decay or tooth loss, and the sooner one acts the better. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon will explain how our in-house lab and resources make it possible to restore your smile with a custom implant in a single day.
Addressing Major Concerns
The last thing you or your dentist wants is for you to lose one or more of your natural oral structures. As a child, teeth fall out naturally and are replaced by adult structures. Bear in mind, however, that losing a tooth as an adult is quite different, as it is often the result of a serious concern and is considered a permanent result, meaning they will not grow back.
Indeed, severe decay, infection, or even physical trauma may result in the loss of your structure, and while it may be crucial to extract a compromised tooth to preserve your oral health, it is also important to have it replaced as well.
The Need for Extraction
Sometimes decay can progress to the point that a structure has not yet fallen out but the infection is close to affecting your surrounding teeth significantly. In matters such as this, a same-day dental extraction may be considered in order to best preserve your oral health.
Keep in mind, however, that you are not out of the woods just yet. In fact, while some complications can be addressed with removal, a slew of new problems will arise that can compromise your oral function. For instance, as little as one missing tooth can cause issues with enunciation, biting, chewing, and eating. What’s more, you may experience strain and discomfort as your bite attempts to accommodate the missing structure(s). Fortunately, our team can help with replacement.
Traditionally, implant posts are placed and allowed to fuse with your jaw bone as it heals before placing the custom restoration on top. Our methods differ, however, as we are able to use our in-house lab and team of specialists to craft your restoration and place it along with your implant in a single office visit. That means that you will not have to endure the difficulties that arise from compromised oral function while also benefitting from a lifelike appearance and full smile once more. We do not want our patients to feel uncomfortable or disgruntled by the process, which is why we offer same-day implants.
