getting answers about teeth in a day procedures

Have you been putting off getting teeth extracted because you did not want to have to walk around without any teeth? I put the procedure off for three years before finally learning about the availability of teeth in a day procedures at local dentistry practices. Even after learning about the procedures I was still unsure if it was for me. I did not know if I would be a good candidate, if I could afford it, and exactly how it would work. I have compiled all of the information that I gathered to help others learn about this wonderful process.

Improve Your Smile One Implant At A Time

Dental implant technology is now the standard treatment to replace missing teeth in your mouth. Whether you have one missing tooth, an area with several teeth missing, or you need a full set of dentures, implants can be used to improve your smile. As long as you are in relatively good health, and you are a non-smoker, you will probably be a good candidate for dental implants. The procedure involves implanting a titanium rod into your jaw, and then placing a crown or bridge on top of the implant. For full dentures, implants act as a securing point to establish a good fit for your dentures.

Replace One Tooth with a Titanium Implant

When you are missing a tooth in your mouth, you may be shy about smiling. If the tooth is near the front of your mouth, this can have a big impact on your appearance. One tooth is replaced when the dentist uses a titanium rod and crown made of synthetic materials. This new tooth looks natural, and doesn't require any special treatment. While you may have to wait several months for the titanium rod to embed into your jaw, most people find that they are very pleased with the final outcome.

Creating a Bridge with Implant Technology

Traditional dental bridges are created by making the false teeth and securing them in the mouth using wires that attach to nearby teeth. This can cause damage to otherwise healthy teeth, and you can usually see the wire that was used. Titanium rods are now being used to secure a bridge in place. Several rods are placed in the mouth, and the entire bridge of teeth is secured using the titanium implants instead of wires.

Implant Attachment Points for Dentures

If you have a full set of dentures but you are tired of them slipping around in your mouth, you can have the dentures secured in your mouth using implant technology. Your dentist will place implants in your mouth, and these will attach to your dentures. This creates a secure attachment for your dentures and you don't have to worry about them falling out.

If you are a smoker, it's time to stop. Smokers aren't good candidates for implants because the technology often fails because of the action of smoking and the dry mouth it causes.

When you want to replace missing teeth, it's time to talk with your dentist about implants. Contact a professional like George N. Bryan Jr, DDS, PA to learn more.
