ADVANCING THE ART AND SCIENCE OF DENTISTRY

FIXED, DETACHABLE & REMOVABLE PROSTHESIS WITH IMMEDIATE LOADING OF IMPLANTS

“TEETH-IN-1-DAY”

If you’re missing a tooth or many teeth, you may find that there are other things that are missing. You may wish for a natural smile and the ability to chew enjoyable foods and speak clearly. You may feel self-conscious about the missing teeth and changes in the mouth or concerned as other teeth shift position with time. Perhaps you have experienced a change in “facial aesthetics” or how the mouth and face are changing in appearance. Perhaps they are taking on a more aged appearance. The effect of tooth loss varies from person to person and depends on what exactly has been lost. When a tooth and its root is lost, the bone around the tooth will gradually shrink or atrophy, the remaining teeth may shift, chewing will become more difficult with time and negative facial changes may occur. There are a number of ways to replace teeth. When a single tooth is lost, an implant and crown are the first choice for replacement. When all teeth are lost, the patient is forced to replace all teeth and gum tissue with either complete dentures or with an implant-supported prosthesis. When all teeth are lost, their replacement does not require replacement with an implant per tooth. Less implants are required.
