In just one day, this gentleman enjoyed a dramatic and life changing smile transformation thanks to dental implants and skills of the Just Wright Dental team.
It’s a fact we all know: There’s no way to turn back the hands of time. But the older we get the more most of us wouldn’t mind a magic trick for looking younger. At Just Wright Dental, we don’t have any tricks, but we see patients walk out of our office looking years younger every single week thanks to life changing dental implant procedures.
Many patients who have struggled for years with broken, damaged or decayed teeth often think the only solution to their problem are traditional dentures. Some of these patients have even gone that route and have dealt with sore spots in their mouths, goopy denture cream, the frustration of not being able to eat their favorite foods and constant aggravation of dentures that just don’t fit.
We want everyone to know that doesn’t have to be the case! Dental implants are the closest solution available to an individual’s natural teeth and they are becoming an affordable investment for more and more of our patients.
While every patient’s case is unique, the process typically starts with a consultation at our office where our highly-trained team will take a three-dimensional scan of the individual’s teeth and jaw to determine if the person is a good candidate for implants. That state-of-the-art scan also helps us determine how many implants will be needed and where they will be placed.
Once that has been determined and the patient fully understands the procedure and costs involved an appointment is scheduled. And that becomes a life changing day for so many patients because often they walk in with a smile they’ve been hiding for years and, by the end of the day, walk out with a brand-new smile that takes years off their appearance.
The procedure, which patients are comfortably and blissfully unaware of thanks to IV sedation, typically takes several hours. Decayed and damaged teeth are removed, implants are placed, and the patient’s temporary fixed new teeth are attached. When the patient wakes up, they are amazed at their transformation. They tend to be even more amazed when they come back to our office a few days later for a quick post-operative visit and tell us not only do they not remember the procedure, but they experienced little if any pain afterward!
Patients will wear their temporary fixed implant dentures for a few to several months while the dental implants integrate and while their permanent teeth are being custom made. Once that process is complete, they come back in and the permeant is attached, and they can enjoy the look, feel and function of the closest thing to their natural teeth.
If you or someone you know doesn’t want to waste another day dealing with floppy dentures or a smile they’re not proud to show off, give our office a call. We know you’ll be glad you did.
