Conventional dentures could eventually go the way of the dinosaur, thanks to immediate tooth replacement options that closely mirror your natural teeth.
It makes no difference if you have a single tooth that needs replacing, multiple teeth, or a full arch of teeth, we can provide a lasting solution. You can even receive new teeth in a day that offer a more permanent-feeling option than conventional removable dentures.
Immediate tooth replacement also can be done the same day your teeth are removed, if desired.
Your path to a more functional, aesthetic smile begins in our office with the use of advanced imaging in the form of 3D cone beam technology. This imaging equipment offers a much more detailed view of your teeth, gums and bone than traditional 2D X-rays.
What does this mean for you? Increased accuracy in terms of diagnosis, and a more detailed approach to treatment that will best suit your unique needs.
Once a treatment plan is created, we can strategically place dental implants that will help preserve your bone, and provide proper anchorage for your replacement teeth or fixed dentures. Because of the precise, detailed information we gather from 3D imaging, we often are able to utilize a “pinhole,” minimally invasive approach to implant placement with no cutting and sutures involved. Here is a video that demonstrates the process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gT6e0FVzSNo
We also will use the Plasma Rich Growth Factor technique during your procedure, which is a tissue regeneration method that uses your body’s own resources to heal following a surgical procedure.
When you undergo any surgical procedure, even one such as dental implant placement, your body begins to heal itself within a matter of hours. Numerous factors come into play during this process, and discovering which factors promote effective healing enables us to speed your recovery process. PRGF technology makes it possible for us to use specific plasma proteins from your own blood to apply directly during the procedure. These plasma rich proteins stimulate bone synthesis and aid in quicker repair of gingival tissues. The end result is faster, more comfortable healing.
We will give you an attractive temporary tooth replacement the day of your procedure to wear until your permanent replacements are ready, which is typically within four weeks.
If you’re tired of feeling self-conscious about your smile and having to be careful about the types of foods you eat out of fear your dentures will slip, there’s no need to endure that any longer.
