While tooth loss may seem like a gradual process, sometimes instances occur that cause it to happen at a much more rapid rate than you might expect. After all, accidents can happen at any time, and a poor preventive dental routine can inevitably expedite the decay process. Still, most individuals expect replacement teeth to take months before they can enjoy their smile once again, and this process in and of itself is enough to deter some from seeking treatment in the first place. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon discusses the benefits of our in-house lab and team of specialists, including how we can remove and replace a compromised structure same-day.
When a Compromised Tooth has to Go
While it may seem contradictory to the goal of preserving your teeth to have a structure extracted, sometimes it is the best course of action you can take for your oral health. Indeed, teeth that experience severe infection, decay, damage, or are otherwise compromised beyond the point of saving can become harmful to not only your surrounding healthy teeth but your oral health as well.
It is true that nobody wants to lose a natural tooth, but for some, that option is simply not possible when considering your oral health as the top priority. In cases such as these, our team can help with same-day extractions.
Once a structure is gone, however, bear in mind that other complications will arise. For instance, a gap in your grin will cause complications functionally, as your smile will not be able to properly absorb the pressure of your bite without falter. To mitigate these concerns, we recommend seeking a dental implant sooner rather than later.
Traditionally, the process for dental implant restorations would take place over the course of a few months. This is to accommodate the fact that multiple specialists in different offices with different equipment oversee the process.
Dr. Brown takes a different approach, however, and believes that keeping the entire process within a single office not only helps decrease your wait time but increases the quality as well. Indeed, our in-house lab and team of specialists can help design, create, and place your custom implant in only one visit. For more information about this process, reach out to our team today.
The Need for Implant Dentistry
Attempting to perform daily functions without one or more teeth can lead to significant complications. These include strain, difficulty biting, chewing, or speaking, and so much more. Because of this, it is usually wise to waste no time before seeking a replacement.
