While traditional dentures are a great option for many patients, Dentures In a Day offers a host of benefits for people who are missing teeth.
About Dentures In a Day
Dentures In a Day refers to a restorative procedure that would give patients fixed dentures in just a single visit. This means that patients will have a stable partial or full denture that is anchored by mini dental implants. Unlike removable dentures, fixed dentures allow for a very secure hold of the dental appliance, one that is unmatched by even the strongest of dental adhesives.
How Fixed Dentures Work
Fixed dentures are held in place by dental implants. Traditional dental implants are surgically embedded into the jawbone and gum tissue to ensure the best possible hold. These implants fuse with the tissues of the mouth, making the implants serve and new tooth roots.
What Makes Dentures In a Day Different from Regular Implant-Supported Dentures?
Regular dental implants require oral surgery and a months-long healing process. During this recovery phase, a process known as osseointegration takes place. This means that the dental implants fuse with the bone and gum tissue.
Mini dental implants load immediately, which means they do not require the months-long recovery period in order to be effective.
How Effective Is Dentures In a Day?
Dentures In a Day is a highly effective option for many people who experience different degrees of tooth loss. Many patients who undergo treatment are able to smile, bite, chew, and speak with absolute confidence. The mini dental implants are stable, and the denture that's crafted looks natural and beautiful.
General Candidates for Dentures In a Day
Ideal candidates for Dentures In a Day are people who are missing many teeth in a row, and possibly all of the teeth along the dental arch. They should be in good overall dental health otherwise and understand the risks and benefits of Dentures In a Day Treatment. This helps provide patients with realistic expectations about the procedure, which in turn leads to higher instances of patient satisfaction.
Jawbone and Gum Tissue Density Is Key
In order for mini dental implants to be secure, patients must have sufficient jawbone and gum tissue in place to support the mini dental implants. One of the issues with this, however, is that tooth loss can lead to loss of bone density and gum recession. Without healthy hard and soft tissue in place, the mini dental implants will not be viable for a patient.
When a patient does not have enough bone density or gum tissue in place for mini dental implants, traditional dental implants may be more ideal, though the patient require grafting surgeries to build up the bone and gum tissue before a dental implant surgery can occur.
