Get New Teeth in a Day at Buckhead Cosmetic & Family Dentistry
According to the Journal of the American Dental Association, the overall incidence of adults over age 50 that are losing teeth has decreased from 17 percent to 11 percent over the past decade. While the goal of traditional dental care is always to preserve natural teeth, sometimes that is not possible and patients must consider their tooth replacement options. Teeth in a day or implant supported hybrid bridges combine the best of both worlds for patients that have terminal dentition and hopeless teeth.
Buckhead Cosmetic & Family Dentistry now offers the option of receiving teeth in a day, instead of dealing with traditional dentures that are not retentive and esthetically pleasing. These often affect speech, eating, digestion, and, most importantly, people’s confidence about their smile and appearance.
People in all generations have struggled to find solutions for the problem of tooth loss. However, today’s dental patient is no longer content to receive artificial tooth replacements that make it obvious he or she has had significant dental work completed, or to wear dentures that have to be removed at night giving them the classic sunken-faced denture wearer look.
How is it Possible to Get Teeth in a Day?
Teeth in a day, also known as fixed hybrid dental bridges, use between 4-6 implants in each toothless arch to provide very strong anchors for the implant retained bridge. It gets its hybrid name from being a hybrid shape between traditional porcelain bridge teeth and the pink gingiva or gum portion from the traditional denture.
This game-changing treatment option has now become the new trend in replacing hopeless teeth and not needing to downgrade to having traditional dentures. These usually have retention issues and patients are not able to eat with them easily, leading to limitations in consumption of different food options. Corn on the cob and biting into an apple becomes a new reality for patients that decide to upgrade their dental restorations to the implant retained hybrid bridges, because these are fixed and not removable appliances and act as a replacement to patients’ natural teeth.
Dr. Bahar Nia of Buckhead Cosmetic & Family Dentistry and her team have given several patients longevity and their beautiful functional smile back by providing teeth in a day.
Designed for Immediate Functionality
Since patients receive new teeth immediately, there is no need to have a period of not having teeth. Patients tend to walk out of their appointment with fixed teeth in place. The fixed hybrid dental restoration, alternatively referred to as All-on-4 or teeth in a day, allows for immediate functionality that rivals that of natural teeth as well as improved aesthetics. Dr. Bahar Nia consults with patients regarding the appearance of the new restorations and choosing shape, shade, and gingiva color with the patient to make sure they are completely satisfied and content with their future permanent, non-removable, amazing smile.
Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth in a Day?
Patients that have hopeless teeth with lots of bone loss, broken and terminal teeth, or severe gum disease may be great candidates for this process. As it’s not easy to be able to determine who is a great candidate for this procedure, it’s best to leave it to the professional to make that determination.
At Buckhead Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, Dr. Bahar Nia always values the importance of a personal face-to-face consultation to review the patients’ X-rays and imaging and make the determination if he or she is a great candidate for this type of restoration. She will offer alternative options if the patient ends up not being a candidate for teeth in a day.
The first step to finding out if you are an appropriate candidate for this type of restoration is to call the office and make a consultation appointment to meet with Dr. Nia and start your new journey to a beautiful and functional smile that will add to your confidence and will take years off your look.
