Getting the teeth you want in one day

30 March;  Author: Hair Extensions Australia

pYou may have come across dentist ads screaming out the words ldquo;Teeth in a day!!!rdquo; many times in the streets.nbsp;What does it mean? Is it really possible to get teeth in a day from you local dentist?/p
plsquo;Teeth in a dayrsquo; refers to the implant procedure that deals with placing immediate loading implants. These are a href= target=_blankimplants provided by your Arlington TX dentist/a upon which the crown is placed immediately. em/emThis means you can start chewing normally on the implant within a few days. It used to be that implanted teeth would need to be fused with the surrounding bone, and this could take 3 to 6 months.nbsp;Patients didnrsquo;t want to wait that long, and doctors were afraid of failure, so this procedure never really caught on./p
pBut with better implant materials and improved surgical techniques the failure rate for these implants has gone way down. The overall success rate is high, and with a healthy patient with no systemic or dental contraindications, you can enjoy good results. Today, the entire jaw is scanned with 3-D CT to accurately assess the level of remaining bone. Using computer software and surgical stents, the implant is guided in with high precision. With 3D imaging and CAD CAM technology the crown can be designed and prepared so that it is ready to be affixed at the same time the implant is.nbsp;The failure rate is very low with this technique, as long as the bones and gums are relatively healthy.nbsp;/p
pAssuming the surrounding gums are healthy, after a tooth is extracted, the socket is enlarged slightly to accommodate the implant.nbsp;/p
pThese implants are not advised for people with uncontrolled diabetes or other systemic conditions that contraindicate a surgery. Sometimes the patient will have to return for minor adjustments. This procedure requires greater skill on the part of your a href= target=_blankDenton, TX dentist/a/Implantologist than other implant procedures./p
pCheck with a href= target=_blankDr. David Dennison, an oral surgeon and sedation dentist in Houston TX/a, to see if he is em/emable to provide this procedure for you. Some dentists do not advise this while others swear by this radical method. Normally 2 visits may be required, even if it is called ldquo;teeth in a day.rdquo; The first visit usually consists of case history taking and detailed examination followed by a couple of tests to check your health status. Even though the next visit may seem cumbersome, most patients have experienced little or no pain, and with increased success rates the procedure is becoming increasingly popular./p
