Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
Wilmington periodontists Dr. Phyllis and Deana Cook of Cook Periodontics & Dental Implants are promoting the new Teeth-in-a-Day dental implants for those seeking to replace their missing teeth in the new year. These implants can be successfully placed in one office visit, quite a contrast to the typical multi-visit approach spanning as many as four or even six months. Advanced technology allows Drs. Cook to offer the Teeth-in-a-Day dental implants procedure to many people, making a healthy smile a viable resolution for 2014.
Dental Implants are comprised of three pieces—the implant itself which is essentially a titanium post inserted securely into the jaw bone, the abutment and then a dental crown made of porcelain that is adhered to the abutment. The dental crown provides the look, feel and function of the natural tooth. A standard dental implants procedure requires that patients undergo an initial surgery for the placement of the post. After this, several months are required to allow the jaw bone to fuse with the new post in a process known as ossification before the porcelain crown can be placed. During the ossification process, gum tissue can grow over the post requiring another surgery to remove that before the crown can be put on.
As leading periodontists in Wilmington, Drs. Cook leverage the latest technology and dental advances to offer Teeth-in-a-Day dental implants to patients. The Teeth-in-a-Day process involves the placement of both the post and the dental crown in the same office visit and can often be completed in about an hour, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and surgical procedures. The procedure dramatically reduces the impact of the recovery period. This simplified dental implants procedure can make the dream of implants a reality for many patients in 2014.
If you have spaces from missing teeth and would like to consider your implant options, let Drs. Cook help you start your new year off right. Call Cook Periodontics & Dental Implants today to schedule a consultation today.
