Same Day Teeth Options
Now that dental technology has continued to advance, there are even more options for people looking for teeth replacement. Although replacing teeth in the past would take multiple visits to the dentist and involve different steps, things are now different. With same day teeth replacement options, it is now possible to have teeth replaced on the same day as the first visit.
With same day teeth replacement options, it is possible for a patient to replace teeth with different dental appliances that look and feel like real teeth. Along with other health benefits regarding the jaw bone, it is no wonder more people are opting for these dental options and continue to be thrilled with the results.
Top 3 benefits of same day dental implants
There are quite a few benefits when it comes to having same day teeth restoration through dental implants. We will give a brief overview of some of the benefits below. They include:
1. After patients have the dental implants installed, they will immediately have full functionality of their mouth, including chewing. Because the dental implants stay in place, there is no shifting or movement that the patient has to get used to.
2. The maintenance is relatively straightforward and inexpensive compared to other tooth replacement options that are made of porcelain or other materials.
3. Having a dental implant inserted helps immensely with the overall health of a patients jawbone. When teeth are missing, the jawbone will slowly deteriorate and over time can even lead to someone’s outside appearance being altered due to sagging and caving in the skin around the jaw. With dental implants, this issue is eliminated.
Why does it help with the jawbone?
One of the most common questions we hear is questions about why implants help with the jawbone. It also correlates to one of the issues that people with one or more lost teeth may not realize can be an effect of not having a tooth where it should be.
No root, no stimulation
The root of a tooth is attached from the tooth and goes down directly into the jawbone. When you chew, speak and go about your day the movement moves from the root down into the jawbone and continues keeping it stimulated. When there is no tooth, meaning also no root, this stimulation is gone.
Because of the lack of stimulation from the tooth root into the jawbone, deterioration of the bone can begin occurring over time. As this continues, someone can also see that their outward appearance may change. As the jawbone deteriorates, the jawline can begin to sag and cave in.
With dental implants, this issue is resolved. Because implants include a post that works as a tooth root and is inserted directly into the jawbone, the stimulation keeps the jawbone healthy and no deterioration issues will occur.
