Life is hectic. Between taking your kids to soccer practice and piano lessons and maintaining your own work and social calendars, there’s hardly time to drop everything to have a dental implant made. It’s been a while since you’ve had to have one, but you know it used to take weeks to get a realistic implant crafted. The entire process was incredibly unpleasant, so unless you’ve damaged a visible tooth, it might just be easier to put it off indefinitely. Anyway, you know there’s not going to be a break in the schedule long enough to go from dental x-rays to a perfect new implant any time soon.
What if there was a way to get a perfect implant in about the same amount of time it takes to have dinner at a restaurant.
Dental Implants Then and Now
If you haven’t had a dental crown or implant in a while (and you think you might need one), it’s definitely time to give your modern dentist a call. Today’s high tech dentists have ditched the sticky goo and the oral casts in exchange for 3D CT machines in order to get accurate, full pictures of your whole mouth. This eliminates all the guessing and checking and it makes surprises a thing of the past. It’s also a lot less gross for you.
High tech dental implants have lots of advantages, including:
Quick installation. Did you know that your modern dental implant can be fashioned and installed in about an hour? It might be hard to find time for all the appointments that a traditional dentist needs to create a traditional implant, but a modern implant can be in your mouth in less time than you spend at the salon on a busy day. Technology is a huge time saver, both for you and your dentist!
Fast healing. The doctor can see everything in your mouth with advanced imaging equipment, so there’s no guessing or going in blind. They know exactly where they’re placing the implant, how deep to go, even the condition of the bone they’ll find there. Because of this, they can do a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t take weeks to heal. In fact, no one may even notice you’ve had a procedure at all.
Looking more realistic than ever. The realism of implants of the past was largely dependent on the skill of the creator, which varied widely. But even the best still looked just a little bit off. After all, it was a fake tooth made out of materials that could be just a bit too shiny or flat, especially since your own teeth weren’t there for reference. Using technology like 3D printing, a tooth that looks exactly like your own teeth can be printed and then lost among them. Even your best friend wouldn’t be able to pick out the implant if you didn’t tell them — your new tooth will give you back that radiant smile you’ve been missing.
You don’t have to avoid your favorite foods and drinks any longer, not when it’s so easy and fast to have a new tooth that looks so realistic securely placed in your mouth.
