Individuals in the Little Rock, AR and surrounding areas who need replacement teeth should check into a program called Teeth in an Hour™, during which computer guided dental implants are put into place. This method is quicker and the results are more like natural teeth than traditional dentures.
With traditional dentures, there is the aggravation of taking them out at night only to put them back in in the morning. It can also be a bit troublesome to clean them and, if you travel, you must remember to pack all the necessary supplies so you can take care of them properly while you are on your trip. Add to this the problems that can be created when food particles get under them, and it doesn’t take long for you to begin wondering if there is a better solution.
One of the advantages of dental implants is that they are permanently put in place. You do not have to worry about taking them out or keeping them in. You can treat them just like your natural teeth as far as your dental hygiene habits are concerned.
If you have been thinking about getting implants instead of using dentures that you have to remove regularly, but have been nervous about how well they will work or fit in your mouth, you should ask our experienced cosmetic dentist about Teeth in an Hour™. The computer guided system will help our dentist make sure he gets the implants aligned and inserted perfectly.
Once you decide to go forward with the program, your process will begin with a CT scan of your jaw. This will allow for the creation of a three-dimensional model of your jaw bone. The computer software can then utilize this to plan the exact placement of the implants. This method helps to ensure the accuracy of the implant locations.
Further advantages include the fact that there is less discomfort after the procedure. There is less swelling and less bruising than there is with traditional methods. In most cases, you can expect to resume your normal duties the following day. Because the procedure is done arthroscopically, it is also less invasive than other methods.
