Tooth loss generally occurs due to malocclusion, cavities, external trauma, and bacterial infection. Despite several initiatives to curb and improve the method of oral hygiene and preventive measures, many patients stress themselves realizing that tooth extraction is the final resort to prevent further damage to their teeth.
What could be the possible reasons behind tooth loss?
Here are some of the common reasons behind tooth loss:
- An extensive decay of the teeth.
- Broken teeth due to external trauma.
- Bacterial infection and accumulation of tartar.
Implant dentistry has come up with a technology to give patients a stress-free and feasible alternative to their original teeth where the lost tooth can be replaced with the help of an artificial one, or better known as an implant.
What can Implant Dentistry provide you with?
Implant dentistry has advanced to provide patients with a durable, convenient, and superior alternative to an original tooth with the help of artificial tooth, better known as an implant. Artificial implants will help restore the natural look and aesthetics of the teeth and the facial structure.
Here are some of the implant dentistry options that we offer at our facility:
A dental implant is a small Titanium screw that is implanted into the jawbone where the tooth has been extracted from. This will provide a firm base to place an artificial tooth or a set of artificial teeth that would appear and function exactly like natural ones. The implant is placed with a precise technique with a shape that maximizes surface area to bond to the bone of the jaw to support a beautiful individual crown. Also, the precise technique enables the crown to be kept clean, and independent of adjacent teeth.
Dental implants are strong, durable and built to last for several years. Some of the advantages of dental implants are:
- They look, feel and function like normal teeth.
- With implants, you can eat any type of food you wish.
- They maintain the facial structure.
- They help improve our confidence.
- They also prevent bone deterioration in the jaws.
Crowns are dental restorations that are used to provide a solution to broken, chipped, and discolored teeth. Crowns are cap-like restorative devices, which cover the damaged teeth making them look like natural ones. Crowns are made of different materials. They come in all-metal, ceramic-on-metal, and all-ceramic forms.
We recommend our patients to go for crowns to correct various dental conditions. Here are some of them listed out:
- Crowns provide an excellent solution to teeth which have cavities.
- They are recommended for patients who have just undergone a tooth extraction.
- Crowns are also advised for patients who have undergone a root canal procedure.
- They are used to hold dental bridges in place.
- Dental crowns are used to correct cosmetic dental issues.
Dentures are dental restorative devices that are used to restore missing or broken teeth. They are easily removable dental devices. They can either provide a replacement for the entire set of teeth or only for a certain number of teeth.
They help patients get a better aesthetic appearance and also help in improving their phonetics (speech). They are engineered to provide a convenient solution to the dilemma of missing teeth. Since they are made of acrylic, they can be made to look exactly like real teeth and gums. They also prevent the bones in the jaw from drifting, thereby holding the facial structure intact. What's best about them is that they help retain the shape of the cheeks and lips.
