|Dental implants are an attractive tooth replacement option for many edentulous patients because they are durable and they have a natural appearance.
In order for dental implants to be successful, sufficient bone material must be present to facilitate the process by which the implant fuses with the jawbone. As a result, toothless patients with significant bone loss often express concern that they won’t qualify for implant-supported dentures.
These patients can take advantage of a special technique called Teeth In A Day dental implants, which is designed specifically for patients with significant jawbone resorption.
In placing Teeth In A Day dental implants your Irving implant dentist takes the pattern of jawbone atrophy into consideration when choosing implant sites.
The implant dentist places the four implants toward the front of the mouth, where the jawbone is thickest and erodes most slowly. Those four implants then can serve as anchors to a prosthetic arch of teeth.
Because bone erodes when the teeth’s roots are missing, some patients may initially believe that they’re not suitable candidates for dental implants instead of dentures. However, nearly all patients can get Teeth In A Day dental implants.
Teeth In A Day dental implants have a number of beneficial qualities, and in particular dental implants have a host of advantages over standard dentures. Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth, helping to stabilize the jaw and prevent further atrophy. They tend to preserve more chewing function than other tooth replacement alternatives, and they won’t slip or slide out of place at a most inopportune time.
Another plus for Teeth In A Day dental implants is the treatment timeline. The implant procedure takes place right in the implant dentist’s office, and the patient is fitted with a temporary arch of replacement teeth in just a few hours. After the implants have healed and fused with the bone, the patient receives the stronger, permanent prosthesis.
Denture wearers who have noticed that their appliances don’t fit as well as they used to should talk to an implant dentist. If you are about to have your remaining teeth removed, consider Teeth In A Day dental implants from the outset for improved oral health.
