Today on Talking Texoma our host Dana Jackson is visiting with Dr. Jackson of Art of Dentistry about some new alternatives to dentures. Shana asks, “what are our options when our natural teeth just aren’t the same or they’re starting to wear out and it’s kind of a hopeless situation”? Dr Jackson goes on to explain how many people believe your only option is traditional dentures. Shana points out these can sometimes cause interference with natural taste or cause some insecurities around the possibility of the dentures falling out.
What is the solution to all of this? Dr Jackson explains there are some great new treatment options where the teeth stay in and are not removable. These are screw retained teeth that stay in and are implant supported. Shana mentions she has heard this can all be done one day, which is true! The day of surgery when you have your teeth removed they stay in that same day.
How do you know if it is time for something like this? Dr Jackson explains it’s not about a certain age it’s all based on your teeth. If you’re spending a lot of time, effort, really hard work to keep your teeth and you’re still having toothaches and making frequent trips to the dentist this might be a good solution for you.
So, if you think you’re ready for a procedure like this be sure and call doctors Burross, Jackson or Ratzlaff at the art of dentistry and they’d be happy to set up a consultation for you.
