Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village and Agoura Hills, CA
Unfortunately, a day may come when it may no longer be feasible to have your original teeth. It can be devastating. Dentures have their cons for sure, but Agoura Hills implant dentists at Integrative Dental Arts are here to tell you, you have better options.
As we age, our teeth begin to take a toll and wind up needing more dental care than ever, which is why many seniors end up with denture at some point.
Dental issues during senior adult years:
- Old silver fillings cause teeth to crack or break
- Teeth become loose due to receding gums
- Tooth becomes drastically decayed
- Saliva changes resulting in ‘burning’ gums or dry mouth syndrome, which leads to more tooth decay and lost teeth
Cons of Dentures:
Dentures are an option to replace your original teeth, but unfortunately, sometimes they can have undesirable outcomes. In order for the dentures to stay in place for many wearers, you must use a denture adhesive or paste. Without this adhesive, dentures will not be secure while speaking or eating and may slip out. This can be a very embarrassing experience. Partial dentures can be used if you still have teeth remaining, but unfortunately, they can cause infection or decay in your natural teeth.
Teeth in a Day
Teeth in a Day is a revolutionary dental implant procedure in which we can provide you a whole new set of permanent teeth in a single day! These replacement teeth consist of four dental implants strategically placed in the mouth, and attached to the implants are artificial teeth that are handcrafted to look perfect and natural. The best part about the Teeth in a Day procedure is that it typically is ideal for current denture wearers or those who are not candidates for traditional implants. Plus, you no longer have to deal with messy adhesives or teeth that don’t stay put!
How do Dental Implants work?
Implants are a much more stable option because they fuse to your jawbone. A local anesthetic will be used so that you will be awake during the procedure, but your mouth will remain numb. We place your implants and attach your permanent teeth all in one day! Impressions are taken beforehand and sent to our trusted dental lab to craft your replacement teeth. That way, your new teeth are ready to go once you arrive for the day of your appointment for your implants.
How to take care of your Dental Implants
Brush and floss daily, and receive routine cleanings and checkups. Also, avoid smoking as it can cause infection or the implants to fail. If your implants feel uncomfortable, you notice redness or bleeding, reach out to your doctor immediately.
