It can take years of wear and tear, and plenty of lapses in daily dental care efforts, to cause teeth to loosen and then fall out. It can take months of planning and supporting procedures before you’re ready to have replacement teeth put in.
In just one day, the day of your dental implant surgery, you’ll notice a dramatic difference between when you walked into the dentist’s office missing teeth to after you’ve had your procedure. Take a look at how full mouth dental implants will dramatically change your life as early on as the day they’re implanted.
New Teeth, Old Foods
In some cases, especially if you get All on 4 dental implants, you can get your final dentures on the day your implants are placed. But even if you have to wear temporary restorations until your implants have healed enough to support your final overdentures, you’ll still be able to quite literally taste the benefits of having your implants placed. Though you may want to wait a few days for the swelling to go do before going all in, you can start eating with your new dental implants the day they’re placed.
Preservation of Bone
Teeth help to preserve jawbone. When they’re pulled, the jawbone starts to deteriorate. But with dental implants in, you could slow or even stop that deterioration. Preserving your jawbone won’t only extend the life of your dental implants, it can breathe new life into your smile by preventing your face from sinking in as a result of bone loss in the jawbone.
Better Oral Health
The supporting procedures you’ll need to have before having your implants placed are also beneficial to your overall oral health. Pulling decaying teeth, treating receding gums, grafting new bone and other procedures can stop the spread of gum disease and make it much easier to manage.
