Dental Implants and Invisalign – Things You Need To Know

What Makes You A Candidate For A Same Day Dental Implant?

If you have ever considered having a dental implant treatment done, you must’ve had doubts about it. This is probably because you never connected with a reputed dentist in Preston who could educate you about the same. Don’t wait for any more of your teeth to fall out.

One option that stops this recurring nightmare from coming true is a dental implant treatment. This is a procedure carried on by your Preston dentist and he will do it within a day if you want it that way. Yes, your oral surgeon or periodontist is capable of delivering same day implants as well but there are certain requirements for the procedure to be successful. For the immediate dental placement to be completely successful the patient’s screening process has to be extremely thorough. The ideal candidate would be someone who is in great dental and good general health and should avoid the following habits as they can negatively affect dental implants:

Smoking

Drugs the intake of which increases the risk of bone death or deterioration after surgery

Bruxism or grinding of the teeth and clenching

Patients who choose same day implants should also be committed to regular maintenance of their teeth and good oral hygiene. If you have enough bone density, quantity and quality then you are the ideal candidate for immediate dental implants placement and loading. This is due to the fact that the anticipated initial implant stability is important and your Preston dentist will assume bone density, quantity and quality to be helpful in it.

What Makes You A Candidate For Invisalign?

Well, to put things in perspective here Invisalign treatment is for anyone who wants to look good without having to compromise on their smile. So yes, you are a candidate for it if you want to look your natural best. This is simply the process of wearing wires to straighten your teeth. The biggest difference here is that it is not a series of metal but clear plastic, removable aligners. These too work just like their metallic counterparts and gradually straighten your teeth over time.  Yes, and that makes a lot of difference in your appearance to be exact. There are no brackets or wires, and none of the usual restrictions that you are warned against in case of metal braces. The best part is that Invisalign treatment is a great solution for kids, adults and teenagers looking for a practically invisible technique to improve their smile.
