Do you have badly damaged teeth or loose teeth from advanced gum disease and avoid treatment because you do not want dentures? Dr. Mark Sowell has great news for you!
People who have teeth that are badly damaged and not savable are often reluctant to have their teeth removed. They don’t want to walk out with a denture in their mouth for several months. Thus they often avoid treatment and let the infection get worse and worse in their mouth. “Teeth-In-A-Day” is now a solution.
In a Teeth-In-A-Day procedure, we remove all of your teeth and replace them with dental implants in one visit. Plano, TX dentist Dr. Sowell will place four or more dental implants to secure a denture or hybrid bridge, immediately restoring function and aesthetics to your smile.
The initial restoration will be a temporary denture or bridge that will stabilize the implants and aid in healing. Once the implants have been integrated, you will have your permanent fixed/detachable titanium/acrylic bridge secured into place.
Dental Implants vs. Dentures
Dental implants are the gold standard for those missing all their upper and/or lower teeth. In years past, the only solution for those missing all of their teeth was a conventional denture. Millions of Americans still wear an upper or lower denture. Patients don’t realize they have other options and often turn to dentures because they’re the least expensive.
However, although they may pay a low cost for dentures, they pay a high cost in quality of life and risk long-term damage to their bone volume and facial appearance.
Implant dentist Dr. Mark Sowell can create the ideal solution for those who are considering replacing their current dentures or looking for an alternative to dentures. A few options are available for those who are missing all of their teeth.
Patients who already have a denture can still wear their dentures while waiting for the implants to integrate (heal).
