Patients have treatment options if they need to replace lost or infected teeth. Dentures have been a traditional and reliable choice for a long time, while dental implants have grown in popularity in recent years. One of the newest available methods is called Teeth-in-a-Day™, which uses the newest technology to speed up the dental implant process. How do you decide which is right for you? Our office can explain some of the advantages of each method to educate you before you see a dentist in Eau Claire.
Tried and True
For patients who need multiple teeth removed, dentures can be an easy and affordable way to replace them. After an impression of your mouth is made, a custom denture is created specifically for you. You may require multiple adjustments to increase comfort and function. Dentures are a breeze to remove and clean, and you do not need surgery to have them. With better materials, today’s dentures do look more natural, but it may take some time to get used to them because they sit on top of your bone.
The Latest and Greatest
Teeth-in-a-Day™, which can provide dental implants in as little as one appointment, uses 3D scans and other digital imaging to evaluate patients. Implants are often secured at the same time, and a temporary tooth or teeth can be placed to allow patients more function as they heal. Permanent crowns are delivered after recovery. Dental implants are popular because they feel and work more like your natural teeth and they can last a lifetime. They can also protect your jawbone from additional bone loss that can occur after your teeth are pulled. You can take care of your implants exactly as you do your natural teeth.
