Get Teeth in a Day with Chandler AZ Dental Implants
In all of dentistry, there is only one type of therapy that has a 98% chance of lasting for the rest of your life: dental implants. Each implant functions as an artificial root, made from titanium, that is permanently anchored into your bone. As new bone develops around it, it further secures your artificial tooth into place. In fact, implants are far stronger than the healthiest of natural teeth! Dental implants are an efficacious and versatile restoration. Our Chandler dentist can use dental implants to replace as few or as many teeth as necessary.
Single Tooth Replacement
If all you have is one missing tooth, an independent implant can support a custom porcelain crown to mimic the feel of a real tooth. For two or three missing teeth, you may want to consider an implant supported bridge, so that you do not have to wear a removable partial or reshape healthy neighboring teeth. An independent implant can add additional support to adjacent teeth, so that they do not shift out of place or experience excessive bone loss.
Teeth in a Day Treatments
What happens when you need to replace all of your teeth at one time? Our teeth in a day treatment uses a fixed, “All on 4” dental implants that is slimmer and more comfortable than a removable prosthesis because it is supported directly by the implants. Only four implants are necessary! Dr. Lopez can place each artificial root and attach a provisional denture over them as your bone heals. There’s no discomfort, as the teeth do not rest directly against your healing gum tissues. Choose All-on-4 Teeth in a Day to enjoy:
- Immediate function
- No need to wear anything removable
- Optimal comfort
- Not having to go without teeth
- A procedure that’s completed in just one day
After about three to four months, your bone will be fully healed. At this time, Dr. Lopez will remove the temporary denture and deliver the permanent prosthesis. You’ll be amazed at how comfortable it feels compared to a traditional “plate.”
Implant Supported Overdentures
Some of our Chandler implant patients prefer to wear a removable denture that snaps in and out over implant locators. Overdentures are an economical option that brings together the benefits of implants, combined with the design of a traditional denture. In most cases it is reserved for individuals with excessive bone loss, or to stabilize a lower denture.
