For some, prosthodontics may seem like an option that never has to be considered. After all, all a person has to do is maintain a healthy smile for life, right? The problem arises, however, when life has different plans. Indeed, oral health concerns such as dental decay, infection, sleep apnea, and more can heavily influence a structure’s integrity. What’s more? These concerns can even develop at such a rate that you end up enduring significant damage and pain before even realizing there was an issue to begin with. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon examines the common concerns associated with implant dentistry, and explains how an all-in-one lab helps streamline the process.
Mitigating Costs to Time
When individuals experience tooth loss in many shapes and forms, the immediate solution tends to point toward implant dentistry. Indeed, dental implants offer a unique benefit that traditional restorations cannot, and that is the ability to restore your smile’s function. This includes the ability to properly absorb your bite’s pressure so that you can return to performing routine tasks like biting and chewing with ease.
In most situations, your dentist will recommend a biocompatible post, then outsource to specialists to help create your custom post and crown restoration. Naturally, you will have to account for the time it takes the specialists to communicate and produce their portion of the restoration. Given differing hours and distances between one-another, this can slow down the process dramatically.
What’s more? You end up receiving different bills from each actor, causing the total cost of your treatment (in terms of billing and time) to become much greater than anticipated. For more information about this process, reach out to our team today.
