CHICAGO, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth, and 36 million do not have any teeth at all. Without functioning teeth, many individuals encounter severe medical problems, struggle to eat solid food, and lose confidence.
For many experiencing tooth loss dental implants offer a chance for a fresh start, but traditionally treatments involved long, multi-step procedures that were complicated and costly. Thankfully, advances in technology and digital dentistry have changed all of that, with prosthodontists leading the way. Now, patients can have implant procedures done in as little as one day, leaving with a full set of new, healthy teeth.
"Many of my patients feel trapped in a never ending dental cycle," said board certified prosthodontist Craig Sikora, DMD. "Having a quicker solution provides much needed relief and hope."
This approach provides a restored smile quicker than ever, with fewer appointments, and much less hassle. The result is a better experience for the millions of Americans in need of transformative dental treatments.
"The first step is to find out if you are a candidate by speaking to a prosthodontist," said Dr. Sikora. "Patients will typically have a pre-procedure exam to review health history and design their smile. The next step is the one day dental implant procedure. Once healing is complete, patients return for another appointment to finalize their new smile."
Prosthodontists receive advanced training beyond dental school in the placement and restoration of dental implants, enabling them to provide safe, effective, and sophisticated treatment plans with implants, restoring your smile through the utilization of the latest dental technology.
As the leaders in the field of dental implants, prosthodontists perform more full-mouth implant restorations than any other specialty in the dental field; they are the professionals of choice for immediate smile transformations.
