CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., August 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Chattanooga Periodontics and Dental Implants in Chattanooga,
Dental implants are the tooth replacement of choice for many patients due to their permanent restoration of dental function, oral health, and smile aesthetics. Unlike removable dental bridges, partials, or dentures, dental implants generally last a patient's lifetime. Dental implants will not loosen, slip, or fall out if proper oral hygiene and routine dental appointments are maintained. Patients also choose dental implants because they are aesthetically pleasing and are indistinguishable as artificial teeth, whether replacing one, several, or all diseased, damaged, or missing teeth.
Patients who suffer dental trauma, severe tooth decay, or periodontal disease may be informed that tooth extraction is needed to preserve the health of their smile. Traditionally, if a patient replaced the removed tooth with a dental implant, the treatment site required a 4-month healing period between extraction and placement. During this time, the patient would have to wear a flapper, partial, denture, or no artificial tooth to ensure the treatment site was not disturbed. With advanced extraction and placement techniques, Drs. Felts and Randall can often remove one or more teeth and surgically place dental implants during the same appointment, eliminating the inconvenience of traditional treatment methods.
Drs. Felts and Randall employ minimally invasive tooth extraction techniques and leverage guided implant technology to place dental implants. After a tooth is extracted, if adequate jawbone is present, a dental implant can be surgically placed into the jaw. Patients who qualify for immediate dental implant placement can enjoy a more streamlined treatment process and only one surgical appointment.
For same-day tooth extraction and full arch dental implant placement, Drs. Felts and Randall use the TeethXpress® protocol. TeethXpress allows patients with failing teeth to receive a new set of functional, beautiful teeth, commonly the day of tooth extraction and dental implant surgery.
