Dr. Timothy Hacker is a dentist who provides solutions for tooth replacement in the Memphis, TN area. The newest innovation in this area is the Teeth-in-a-Day treatment. This is considered a major improvement over dentures and even regular dental implants. With Teeth-in-a-Day, patients can have a new set of dental implants in a single appointment. There are no multiple office visits and no extended healing period. Patients literally walk out with a new set of fully functioning implants after one short visit.
With dentures, patients often complain of discomfort and difficulty performing everyday tasks. Dentures are not held securely and often slip around in the mouth. This can make it difficult to eat or speak clearly and often causes embarrassing moments. Even worse is that dentures allow for bone and tissue deterioration. Over time your gums and jawbone will begin to wear away due to a lack of stimulation. The result is an alteration in the facial structure, which can increase signs of aging. For these reasons, dental implants are considered an improvement over dentures.
While dental implants are preferable to dentures, they still have their drawbacks. Mainly, the long waiting period between when they are put in place and when they can be used. There is a four to six month period where the implants become integrated with the jawbone. This can cause difficulty with some patients. However, with Teeth-in-a-Day, there is no waiting period. Surgery takes no longer than a few hours and you have a new fully functioning set of teeth that day.
Teeth-in-a-Day is a great option for patients who do not like dentures or who cannot wait six months for a new tooth. Unlike with dentures, Teeth-in-a-Day provide patients with replacements that both look and feel natural.
