Teeth Tomorrow for Complete Tooth Loss
By Frank Avason, DMD on July 05, 2019
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), almost 1 in 5 people age 65 and older has suffered complete tooth loss. Having a set of custom dentures was the old solution for restoring the health and appearance of the smile. Avason Family Dentistry offers a new solution for patients missing all of their teeth, and it’s called Teeth Tomorrow™.
Dr. Frank Avason III has helped countless patients in the greater Denver and Charlotte, NC area thanks to Teeth Tomorrow. We’ll cover some of the basics of how Teeth Tomorrow works, but first let’s discuss the many issues caused by complete tooth loss.
Problems Caused by Complete Tooth Loss
If you’re missing all of your teeth, you’ll face a number of cosmetic problems and well as dental health issues.
On the aesthetic side of things, suffering from complete tooth loss will leave you feeling self-conscious about laughing, smiling, and speaking, even around loved ones you’ve known for years. Even with your mouth closed, your cheeks and lips may appear sunken in and hollow due to the extent of your tooth loss.
On the dental health side of the equation, complete tooth loss means issues with bone density and gum recession. Without tooth roots to support, this hard and soft tissue wastes away. Having a balanced diet can also be a challenge since your eating habits are built entirely around having soft foods.
What Is Teeth Tomorrow?
Teeth Tomorrow is an advanced form of implant dentistry that allows people suffering from complete tooth loss to have a fully restored mouth in a matter of 24 hours. Multiple dental implants will support a full denture; six are used for upper arch restorations, while five are used for lower arch restorations. Once the patient has healed over the course of a few months, a final full denture made from Prettau® Zirconia will be crafted.
Thanks to Teeth Tomorrow, cosmetic issues and dental health issues associated with tooth loss can be treated.
Good Candidates for Teeth Tomorrow
Ideal candidates for Teeth Tomorrow are people who are missing all of their upper and/or lower teeth. They should be in good overall dental health otherwise, not suffering from gum disease or other major dental problems. During a consultation at our Denver practice, we can assess your suitability for Teeth Tomorrow.
Teeth Tomorrow vs. Removable Dentures
Teeth Tomorrow provides a level of stability that is unmatched by even the best traditional removable dentures. No denture cream or dental adhesive can offer the amount of sheer stability provided by Teeth Tomorrow treatment.
Additionally, the dental implants placed during Teeth Tomorrow help prevent bone loss and gum recession, improving the health of your mouth in the process.
The Results of Teeth Tomorrow Treatment
Patients who get Teeth Tomorrow at our practice experience a revitalized appearance. They can smile with renewed confidence and experience enhanced dental health as well. The final Prettau Zirconia restoration looks totally natural, making it seem as if you’ve had a full set of teeth all your life.
