If you’re living without a full set of attractive, functional teeth; or if your replacement teeth (dentures) are uncomfortable and embarrassing at times, there’s great news! Now, you can have a full set of beautiful and fully new functional teeth in just one day from Dr. Steve Edwards at Advanced Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX.
Dental Implants Make It Possible
It’s no secret that dental implants have revolutionize the process of replacing missing teeth. A dental implant consists of three parts. The implant itself is inserted (implanted) into the bone where a tooth has gone missing. An abutment attaches to the implant, and the restoration – a single crown, a dental bridge, or a full set of dentures – attaches to the abutment.
Implant-supported or implant-retained restorations are firmly fixed in the mouth. They absolutely will not slide, slip, or pop out unexpectedly. That cuts the embarrassment factor to zero. But even better, dental implants return 90 percent or more your original chewing power. Compare that to the 25 percent chewing power that traditional dentures provide. You can eat all the foods you love comfortably, easily, and without the risk of embarrassment.
Implants are extremely durable and with care they should last for the rest of your life. Restorations do wear over time and will need to be replaced, but that’s true whether or not they’re implant restorations. That makes implants an excellent long-term investment in your smile, your ability to eat, and your overall health.
The Teeth-In-A-Day Process
In a nutshell, it’s easy. You begin by requesting a consultation with Dr. Steve Edwards at Advanced Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX. He’ll ensure that implants will work for you (most people can benefit from implants, but there are some important considerations) and together you’ll discuss your goals for your smile and your mouth.
It may take several appointments to get extremely accurate impressions of your teeth and create a surgical guide for the implants, but no worries. The good stuff is coming. Once everything is ready, your remaining teeth will be extracted, the implants placed, and a full set of remarkable Teeth-In-A-Day dentures secured!
You’ll walk out of the office with a completely restored mouth and a beautiful smile
After a healing period, those dentures will be replaced with permanent dentures created to your specifications regarding the appearance and color, and you’re set for the next decade or even longer!
