Dental Implants & Tooth Replacement

The dental community has always felt compelled to try to fix teeth at any cost. Patients were led to believe that fixing their own teeth was ALWAYS the best course of action. That is not necessarily true today. Dental Implants have allowed us to be more specific in when and how we treat certain situations of fractured or infected teeth.

In head to head price comparison, there are times when a tooth can be saved, but at an enormous expense while still being somewhat compromised even after all the procedures and expenses. A dental implant can be used to replace certain teeth that are found to fall into this questionable category and at a cost savings too.

Let’s be clear, not every fractured tooth requires a dental implant. Many are better off just being repaired. But when the question is present as to the condition of the remaining tooth structure and its ability to hold up over time and continued use… considering a dental implant becomes a viable option.

Invariably if teeth are lost early the bone that was used to support those failing teeth will be consumed during the healing process. In today’s dental world, a simple tooth extraction must be evaluated for the bone loss potential if the socket is not managed. Not all bone loos is critical, but many will be in the future. 

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium cylinders placed within your bone jaw in place of a lost tooth root. It can be used individually or used in combination to rehabilitate the entire mouth. Titanium has been proven effective and bio compatible in many forms of body uses in medicine. Dentistry is no different. When used appropriately, it can serve as well or better than the failing tooth that was there prior.

Uses of Dental Implants

Dental implants can be used to support one missing tooth or to replace many missing teeth. But technology has allowed dentistry to become more creative as of late and its uses have increased to be used in orthodontics, denture wearers and even in cancer patients and its attachment properties used in attaching prosthetic pieces to other parts of the body.

How is this Teeth in a day we all hear on the radio?

Teeth in a day is just that. However, there is absolutely NO WAY it can be done in one day. The real truth is that a few appointments must be had to pre prepare everything that will be needed for that ONE true “big” day. Then YES in that One day you can have your teeth placed. Possibly the first set will be temporary teeth and in a short future time slot, more definitive teeth can and should be made.

Removable dental implant options allow a patient to achieve a solid and functional restoration while being more cost effective and much easier to maintain the cleanliness.

Not to be confused. Dental Implants are not “permanent”. They do require maintenance and regular dental visits to maintain them. Exemplary home hygiene methods must be sued to make certain all food debris is removed and not allowed to remain in the area to cause infections.
