Tooth loss is a dental issue that affects anyone regardless of age and status. Its leading cause is often poor dental hygiene, which results in cavities, tooth decay and gum disease. However, tooth loss can affect even those who have established dental hygiene practices, since it can result from chronic illness, aging and physical trauma.
Downside To Having Dentures
Before developments in dentistry took place, patients only had the option of having their remaining teeth extracted, then have a full set of dentures fitted. The downside is that removable dentures can come off during inopportune moments. Removable dentures also feel foreign in the mouth, so those who had them had to adjust and get used to the feel of removable dentures. It is common for first-timers to bite into their tongue or inner cheeks accidentally during the adjustment period. Another issue with removable dentures is that they may not always fit properly. The lower dentures, for instance, tend to be a bit looser than the upper dentures.
Benefits Of Teeth In A Day
Permanent teeth in a day is an alternative to dentures. It enables patients to get permanent replacements for missing teeth. It simply involves a single procedure during which your dentist inserts implants into the jaw bone. During the recovery phase, the implants fuse to the bone tissue, making it possible for the patient to chew and bite properly without the risk of having false teeth slip out.
Teeth in a day are very sturdy and long-lasting. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a sound investment.
