There’s a simple reason that you might consider full-mouth reconstruction from Cosmetic Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX. You need teeth, and you don’t have enough.
Teeth can go missing for any number of reasons – accidents, dental infections, fractures, and more. A surprising number of people in the United States live with one or more missing teeth. According to the American College of Prosthodontists, “More than 35 million Americans do not have any teeth, and 178 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth.”
So, if you’re missing one or more teeth, you’re in good company. You might think that one or two missing teeth is no big deal; you just basically chew around the gaps. If the missing teeth aren’t in front, you can generally smile without embarrassment. A couple of missing teeth makes brushing a little more complicated, but many people manage fairly well without them.
When You Don’t Have Enough Teeth
Problems can arise when a larger number of teeth are absent. People with only a few teeth, or no teeth, tend to favor soft, easily-chewed foods that may not give them the full range of nutrients that they need to remain healthy.
Teeth are for much more than just smiling, although great-looking teeth are definitely a social and professional asset. Teeth begin the process of digesting our food by reducing the bites we take to smaller size. The process opens up more surfaces for digestive enzymes and mixes our food with saliva which begins breaking down starches and fats.
People who are missing many or all of their teeth usually make a point of not smiling or laughing out loud. That can have negative effects on their social and professional lives.
For people who need more than a dental bridge or a single implant can provide, full-mouth reconstruction is the answer.
Cosmetic Dental Associates Offers Under-One-Roof Teeth Replacement Options
Our expert dentists – Dr. Moore and Dr. Tostado – will handle every element of creating and placing your new smile in our office. You’ll deal with one set of dentists, one dental staff, and one dental practice. That alone sets us apart from other dental practices who require you to drive all over town for complex dental care, but that’s not the only thing.
Since dental needs can be complicated, we’re proud to offer a variety of options for people to eat comfortably again and smile with pride.
Same-Day Smile: This full-mouth reconstruction process makes it possible for you to arrive at our dental practice with no teeth and leave with a full set of replacement teeth. Does that sound unbelievable? It’s possible with Cosmetic Dental Associates’ same-day smile service!
Another thing that sets our practice apart from other practices is our on-premises dental laboratory. We can quickly design the perfect set of replacement teeth for you. Then, partnering with an oral surgeon, we’ll do everything possible to complete your new smile in just one visit.
Our Same-Day Smile service can include:
- CEREC dental crowns that are made and placed while you wait. Other practices may require two or even three appointments to accomplish the same result.
- Dental implants placed and restored during one appointment. This is also a great solution for most people who are missing one or several teeth.
- Load-bearing, dental implant-retained dentures – leave our office with dentures that fit great, look great, and allow you to eat comfortably again. And, they won’t fall out. Guaranteed.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are extremely strong and rooted to your jawbone just like your natural teeth roots. The restoration that attaches to the implant allows you to eat the foods you love comfortably and without worry. We partner with a trusted oral surgeon who will place your implants. During the same visit, Dr. Moore or Dr. Tostado will complete the restoration process with beautiful new teeth.
Dentures: If dental implants don’t sound like what you’re looking for, no worries. Cosmetic Dental Associates offers premium dentures in all styles. You’ll have the perfect fit for your needs and wants.
