Get Your Smile Back in a Day
Losing teeth is always a traumatic and overwhelming experience. In addition to the social impact and potential embarrassment, there are also practical issues to worry about, like eating and speaking clearly. Whether from an accident or a fall, or as the result of dental extractions, having a plan in place to deal with tooth loss before it happens can prevent a lot of stress and anxiety. Tooth replacement options like crowns and dental implants are the next best thing to a natural tooth, but in the past there has typically been a waiting period between when the implant heals, and when the tooth restoration can be attached.
Teeth in a Day
Similar to interim tooth replacements like immediate dentures, which can be fitted on the same day until the permanent pair is ready, "teeth in a day" are a temporary solution to the age old question of "what will I do until my new tooth arrives?" Dr. Alexander Pritsky, a dentist at Fresno Dental Implants and Periodontics, offers dental implants and implant supported dentures for patients in need of replacements for just one, or several missing teeth.
How Does it Work?
An implant replaces the root of the missing tooth. Once it is implanted, it gradually fuses with the bone tissue in the jaw, permanently securing it in place. Once Dr. Pritsky determines that it has properly healed, the restoration crown can be attached. This process can take anywhere from two to four months, depending on the patient. For people who may not want to wait that long, teeth in a day can be attached in as little as 48 hours after an implant in some cases.
