Nashville, TN (PRWEB) February 01, 2014

Patients committed to improving oral health in 2014 can now fulfill their resolutions by replacing their missing teeth with dental implants in Nashville. Dr. Will Akin of Nashville Periodontal Group is offering the Zimmer Revitalize restoration process, which allows the placement of implants in a short surgical procedure in dramatically less time than the typical process that requires multiple appointments and as much as six months to complete.

Dental implants in Nashville can be a positive part of a New Year’s resolution focused on improving one’s health. Filling gaps left by missing teeth can not only create a more pleasing smile aesthetically but can also help to prevent the loss of jaw bone density which can result when no tooth or implant is present over time. For patients with multiple missing teeth, the process for receiving traditional implants can require many other treatments depending on their overall oral health. Receiving a set of new teeth in one office visit with the Revitalize dental implants procedure eliminates many possible complications.

What is commonly referred to as a dental implant is really the combination of a titanium post that is implanted into the jaw bone along with a porcelain crown that is secured to the top of the post to provide the function, look and feel of a natural tooth. Historically, the doctor would perform an initial surgery for the post placement and then wait many months until that post ossified, or fused with the jaw bone, at which point the dental crown would be placed. If too much gum tissue had grown over the post in the meantime, however, an additional surgery would be required to remove that before the eventual crown placement. Teeth-in-a-Day revolutionizes this entire dental implants procedure by allowing the doctors to place the post and dental crown in the same visit for patients who qualify.

If filling the gap left by a lost tooth is on your list of New Year’s resolutions, call Nashville Periodontal Group to schedule a consultation with Dr. Akin to find out if Teeth-in-a-Day implants are right for you.
