Are you struggling to deal with the consequences of tooth loss in your daily life? Do you find it hard to do even the most basic daily functions, such as chewing or speaking properly? If so, you should schedule a visit with our Aurora prosthodontist
, Dr. Derrick L. Williamson, to learn about how our various dental implant options can potentially work for you. Dental implants are an excellent option because of the true smile transformations they provide. Implants not only replace teeth in a way that provides a natural appearance and efficient functionality, but also restore the shape of your face, and greatly boost your confidence by bringing your smile back to order.
Dental Implant Restoration 60540
Dental implants generally work like this: first there is a small metal post that is implanted directly into your jawbone. This metal eventually becomes bonded with your natural bone, and comes together to form the foundation and support system for your new replacement tooth. The replacement tooth usually is attached later on, after anywhere from around three to six months, once our Aurora prosthodontist
deems the foundation strong enough to complete the restoration. We are currently working on a procedure that would speed up this process significantly, called All on Four Dental Implants. After an initial appointment including an x-ray and clinical examination in order to evaluate the current state of your teeth and the surrounding structures of your mouth, you would then return to Dr. Williamson’s office for a second visit. During this visit, we would place four implants on either the upper or lower arch of your mouth, and then the replacement teeth would be screwed in immediately, on the spot rather than after that waiting period of several months. In these cases, the patients would leave the office either with a set of temporary or permanent replacement teeth that same day, allowing them to more quickly improve their smiles and quality of life. We would love to discuss how this option could work for you during your next visit to our Aurora prosthodontist
