How Long Will You Wait To Get Dental Implants?
Let’s say your car was acting up. You take it to a mechanic to find out what’s wrong.
Let’s say he tells you the problem is that you need to replace some parts. You can make an appointment to replace one of them next week, but he will need to order the other part. It could be months before that second part arrives. In the meantime, you’ll have to drive your car without it.
You decide to check with another mechanic before making a decision about what to do. This second mechanic tells you that he can fix and replace everything you need in one day. He already has all the parts. All you have to do is schedule an appointment to get it done.
Would you take your car to the mechanic who can fix your problem over a couple of months with multiple visits to his shop or to the mechanic that can fix your problem in one day?
Perhaps more important, what does this have to do with restorative dentistry?
Many patients with missing teeth face a similar situation. They could go to a dentist who rarely does dental implant placements. As a result, they may need to make one visit to get their implants. They will need months to recover from the procedure. Then they have to return later to get their dentures.
Or, they could make an appointment at New Albany Implants.
With the One Day Smile Solution™, you could get your implants and dentures in one visit to our office in New Albany, IN. Our dentist, Dr. Ron Receveur, developed this solution, which has helped patients from all across the United States.
Do You Need Dental Implants?
Our car metaphor is helpful here, too. You probably wouldn’t do this, but let’s imagine that you drove your car until the tires actually did fall off. Would you replace the tires without putting on lug nuts? If you did, how long do you think you could drive on tires that are not secured to your car?
If you lose your teeth, you could get dentures, but dentures only replace the crowns of your teeth. And since they rest outside your gums, they can slide off at any time — like tires without lug nuts to hold them in place.
At first, you might think things are OK. You might feel like your smile looks nice. You might be able to eat a few things that you couldn’t eat before you got your dentures. You still can’t eat everything you want, but they are better than having no teeth at all, right?
With time, your dentures will get looser and more likely to slip out of position when you try to eat or speak. Given enough time or if you bite into the wrong thing, your dentures could come out completely.
To keep your dentures secure, you need to replace the roots of your missing teeth, too. That’s what dental implants do.
When you have implants, your dentures will stay in place, and they will function like natural teeth. You will be able to eat all the foods you love again without worrying that your dentures might come loose or come out.
