Why It Is Important to Replace Missing Teeth
Whether you are missing one tooth or all of your teeth, it is critical that you work with your dentist to replace them. Without teeth, damage can happen very rapidly. Some of the common problems associated with missing teeth include:
- Advanced periodontal (gum) disease and decay
- Loss of bone because of reabsorption
- Loss of other teeth due to poor oral hygiene and bone loss
- Disfigurement of jaw bone and gum line as bone deteriorates
- Issues with remaining teeth, such as significant movement
The good news is that you can replace your missing teeth in Nashville, TN, sometimes getting a full set of natural-looking hand-crafted teeth in one visit! Call Belle Meade Family Dentistry at (615) 298-2030.
What Are Teeth-in-a-Day?
The Teeth-in-a-Day process has its foundation in dental implant technology. The dentist will embed posts into your jaw bone during an in-office surgery. These posts will be allowed to heal before a permanent implant supported denture can be attached. In the meantime, a temporary denture can usually be placed onto the posts that have been surgically embedded.
This means a patient literally can come in to Belle Meade Family Dentistry for implant supported denture surgery and leave with a complete set of beautiful, natural-looking replacement teeth! After the posts have healed, the temporary replacement teeth will then be removed, and a permanent set will be bonded to the titanium posts.
