How to Get New Teeth with Dental Implants in 1 Day
Possibly the worst part of getting dentures, a dental bridge or dental implants is the wait to get them after having your teeth removed. Many people are too embarrassed to even allow their family to see them with missing teeth.
Dental implants are by far the best tooth replacement option since they look and feel like your own teeth and prevent the loss of bone structure. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root over which a crown will be placed. Until recently, getting dental implants was a rather long and drawn out process. First the tooth or teeth were removed and then the dental implant was placed in your gum. The next step involved waiting between three and six months for your mouth to heal and for your jaw bone to grow around the dental implant before finally placing the crown over the dental implant.
Today, thanks to exciting innovations it has become possible to get new teeth in just one day once you’ve had your initial consultation. At the initial consultation crucial examinations and images are obtained to make it all possible.
The most important step towards success is obtaining a high resolution 3-D CAT scan of your jaw which allows your Glendale dental implant dentist to see the exact location of anatomical structures within your jaw. The 3-D CAT scan also shows the condition of your teeth and bones, so the dentist will be armed ahead of time with the knowledge of what he has to work with. With this 3-D image your dental implant dentist can make a personalized plan of the exact positions to place the dental implants in your jaw. This advanced imaging also enables our lab to create a set of replacement teeth for you that will be ready before you return for your procedure.
During the consultation your Glendale dentist will also perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums and answer any questions you have. Since your dentist determines your exact treatment plan at the initial consultation he will also be able to give you an exact price for the entire procedure.
When you return for your dental implant procedure your Glendale dentist and his staff will see that you are at ease and as comfortable as possible. Your implant dentist may administer nitrous oxide or a local anesthetic in addition to a general anesthetic.
The first step will be for the dentist to perform any necessary extractions, and then accurately place the small dental implants in your jaw according to plan. After this your new teeth, which have been created ahead of time, will be placed onto the implants.
Next, your bite will be adjusted and you will leave with an attractive, functioning set of teeth, along with a prescription in case of discomfort. Your dentist will advise you to take it easy for a day or two.
It will take several months for your gums to heal completely and your dentist will ask you to return for some checkups along the way. These check backs have been included in the price you were given. When your dentist is satisfied that your healing is complete you will return for your permanent replacement teeth. Although these teeth look and feel totally natural, they contain invisible titanium which will make them completely stable and durable. These implanted teeth will last a lifetime, and as a bonus they don’t get cavities!
