We can lose our teeth for various reasons from gum disease, tooth decay, oral trauma, and more. Once we lose our adult teeth, we don’t get them back, and prosthetics to replace them can be quite expensive. We want everyone to look after their teeth while they have them, but unfortunate circumstances sometimes leave us with no other options.
Having no teeth is not only a huge worry for many patients up and down the country, but it’s another worry to be stuck without teeth while implants are healing. If you aren’t already aware, there is a period roughly three months after implants have been fitted that must be set aside simply to allow implants to heal. After this period, your bridgework can be fitted permanently.
Not only was this affecting her image of herself, but it was also a permanent reminder of the money and time wasted on the previous cosmetic treatment. Teeth whitening was unlikely to work effectively on this patient because she had so many fillings in her upper front teeth. Teeth whitening products and procedures cannot whiten fillings.
Here at Synergy Dental Clinics, we have dedicated our lives to help people that struggle with this every day, and we try our best to bring the perfect solutions to the table for each one of our patients. We strive to assess each patient’s medical, dental, financial, and social circumstances and use these to determine the best options for them.
The nature of implants requires the bone to fuse with the artificially placed implant for a secure fit in the mouth. This may not always happen for a variety of different reasons, but if an implant case is correctly planned, executed, and monitored, the chances of this happening are greatly reduced.
