Adult tooth loss is not something to be self conscious about, but it is a serious oral health problem that requires prompt attention. Although many people are concerned about tooth loss because of the negative impact that it has on the appearance of the smile, it can also pose some serious oral health risks, which include the movement of adjacent teeth and degeneration of the jaw bone. Dentures replace missing teeth, restore oral functions, and help patients to avoid more serious dental complications. Patients cannot ask for much more from a restorative dentistry treatment. However, at Bell Dental, we can offer patients more. With dentures in a day, we can fix a patients smile in just a single dental appointment. Dentures in a day offer many benefits to our Angleton patients by allowing them to completely makeover their smile in just a fraction of the time as traditional dentures treatment.
How Do Dentures in a Day Work?
Dentures in a day utilizes All-on-4® technology to secure a partial or complete set of dentures (which would include an entire arch of teeth) using just four dental implants. These implants are smaller in diameter than traditional dental implants so they can be placed, attached to an abutment, and then act as anchors for a temporary set of dentures, all in just a single appointment. A few months later, patients return to have their permanent set of dentures secured to the dental implants.
Dentures alone benefits patients in a number of ways by improving oral functions, enhancing the appearance of the smile, and filling out sunken in facial features. Implant-supported dentures, such as those used for dentures in a day treatment, offer additional advantages to our patients, which include the following:
- Improved stability - Dentures in a day are anchored by implants that have been surgically placed in the jaw bone. This gives them superior stability that will prevent any uncomfortable shifting or slipping.
- Durability - Dentures in a day are extremely strong and long-lasting. In fact, with proper care, these dentures should last a lifetime. If any damage does occur, our dentists can repair the dentures restoration without the need to remove the dental implants, making corrections an easy fix.
- Strong support - Implant-supported dentures are secured by a strong support system, but implants go beyond that and actually help to maintain the health and strength of the jaw bone. Implants act as artificial tooth roots, so they continually stimulate the jaw bone, which helps to prevent degeneration of the jaw bone.
Dentures in a day provide patients with all of the benefits of traditional and implant-supported dentures without the wait, making it one of the most popular dentures treatment options amongst our patients.
