Reconstructive and Cosmetic Teeth Replacement Concepts
Troy Same Day Tooth Replacements
No one enjoys being toothless... whether it is a single tooth, a span of missing teeth... or an entire arch.
Unfortunately there continues to be a large segment of the dental patient population that being toothless while being treated for a number of different dental conditions is normal. That is not the case.
Immediate Replacement Technologies Do Exist
There are numerous technologies and advanced dental products available today that enable reconstructive dentists and specialists (oral surgeon, periodontist, prosthodontist) to provide treatment choices for patients that can almost guarantee they never leave the office without teeth.... regardless of what conditions are being treated.
Missing Anterior Front Teeth
In our practice, the events causing the extraction are matched with two sets of technologies (procedures + products) to develop the most sensible treatment choice (financial resources, function, cosmetics, longevity). See below for more detail.
A missing tooth caused by trauma, for example, would have different treatment choices than if the same tooth is missing due to a congenital defect.
Most dentists who have the greatest access to technologies can be expected to have the creativity to develop tooth replacement options that are not available with those dentists (or practices) who are not up-to-date with the current state of dentistry in the US.
Common Tooth Loss Events
Just about everyone, at one time or other, goes through the experience of losing a tooth or, for some, several teeth.
