When you lose one or more teeth, it creates problems that go far beyond just aesthetics. For example, it can also lead to adjacent teeth drifting out of place or becoming misaligned. And it eventually leads to bone loss and gum shrinkage below where the tooth used to be.
There are numerous advantages of dental implants over other tooth restoration methods like removable dentures and bridges, but did you know that you can get same-day dental implants? Really? New teeth in one day? As amazing as that may seem; yes, it is really possible. And experienced periodontists perform same-day implant installation procedures on a routine basis.
In decades gone by, there were few viable options for tooth restoration after you'd lost one or more teeth. You basically had removable dentures when many teeth had been lost and dental bridges when only one or two were missing and that was it.
It is always best to save a natural tooth if at all possible, which is why fillings and root canals are the first two options to consider. But when a tooth is too badly infected internally, badly cracked, or already missing - tooth restoration takes the form of tooth replacement.
Is it possible to get a full mouth of new teeth in only one dental sitting? With modern teeth in one day procedures, it is! You can get all-on-4 permanent dentures attached to dental implants that will immediately improve your smile and give you the look, feel, and function of a mouth full of natural teeth.
