Dental Implants - 7 Reasons Why You Should Go for them

Dental implants are basically replacing your teeth roots. In dental implants anchors are used which are actually a cylindrical screw like object. This is put in your lower and upper jaw bones through surgery and they work like stable bases for artificially replaced teeth. (Learn how to Avoid Yellowing of Teeth)

Dental implants can be of many types and the types of implants vary on the method of surgery.

Some prominent types of dental implants are:

  1. Endosteal: In this method screws, blades or cylinders are surgically inserted in the jawbone. Every implant can hold one or more artificial teeth.

  2. Subperiosteal: Through this process, artificial teeth are on the top of a jawbone by a metal framework. People who cannot wear artificial dentures and have a short bone height prefer this method.

Dental implants come with many advantages, some of the advantages may include:

  1. Improved Appearance: Surgically implanted teeth feels like your own teeth, at the same time they also look better.

  2. Improved Speech: With badly fitted dentures (learn more about regular care for dentures) you have chances to slur or mumble your words but with dental implants, it is easier to speak.

  3. Improved Comforts: Dental implants are very comfortable; you will not find any difference with your own teeth.

  4. Comfortable Eating: As it feels like your own teeth, you find no difficulty whilst chewing, and you can always enjoy your favourite food.

  5. Improved Confidence: After dental implants, you will smile lot more than before and that will happen because of your regained self-esteem.

  6. Durability: Dental implants last many years and if you take good care then it can last for your lifetime. Sometimes people choose dental implants for its durability.

  7. Convenience: Although this process lasts for a very long time, you can replace it or change it anytime you feel like you are having any problem regarding it.

There are also some different processes through which dental implants can be done. It depends on your problems and needs.

Some processes may include:

  1. Replacing one single tooth: if your one tooth is missing then one crown and one implant would be enough.

  2. Replacing many teeth: if you are having problems with several teeth, then a full bridge of dentures can be used.

  3. Replacing all your teeth: if it is needed then all your teeth can be replaced.

  4. Sinus Augmentation: this one is a little difficult process, it helps to develop bones for dental implants. It also develops the quality of your bone.

Dental implants are very successful now. It is durable and good looking. After the implant the artificial teeth feels like your own teeth and it is very easy to handle.

My 3 teeth have cavity they are half broken half inside, i want to take them off and get new one implanted . is it possible?.

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Madam when you say you want a new " tooth " implanted which is called " transplant" I think you are referring to placement of an implant. An implant is just like a screw which would screwed into your jaw bone. So to first place an implant we need good bone support. So if you have good bone support we can place an implant and a crown on top.

Consult to Dr. For any cavity or some enamel loss is there. If cavity present restore it and enamel loss is there apply sensitivity paste on it. It will take 15 -20 days to recover.

The black spots on your teeth can be deposits or caries. Which can be diagnosed clinically. If they are deposits then kindly get scaling done but if it is caries then kindly get it filled before it becomes deep and painful. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique.

I am suffering from mouth ulcers pain. Which medicine to take relieving from the mouth ulcers.
Hi lybrate-user sorry to know ure suffering from ulcers mouth ulcers can vary is size, shape and number. Mouth ulcers are self limiting, which means they heal naturally by themselves. The medications are only to ease the pain and burning sensation during the course of the healing. Please do not self prescribe any medications as it might at times delay the healing of the ulcer. Please visit the dentist to know exactly the type of the ulcer and its treatment. To ease the pain you cud by a topical anaesthetic gel and apply it before eating anything spicy. Try to reduce the stress, avoid long exposure to sunlight, avoid carbonated drinks and citrus fruits and juices containing citric acid, avoid lemon with food and keep urself hydrated. Please visit the dentist for exact diagnosis and treatment.

Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. It is done with an ultrasonic tip which removes the layer of deposit on teeth, so does not affect enamel. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.

How to Avoid Yellowing of Teeth

How to Avoid Yellowing of Teeth

You look your best when you wear a smile on your face. Everyone prefers a smiling face over a frowned one. Since we are talking about smiles, one can never underestimate the role that teeth play in the beauty of a smile. Dental hygiene and care is mandatory if you wish to secure your beautiful smile for years to come.

However, the global statistics for dental care suggests that we do not care enough for our teeth. 60-90% of children who are in school and almost every adult suffer from dental cavities. Dental cavities are pretty common nowadays. And yellowing of teeth can now be seen in almost every other person. It spoils the smile and makes people conscious. By ensuring a few dental care habits in your daily routine lives, you can avoid yellow teeth.

Let us discuss the tips and tricks to avoid yellowing of teeth: 

  1. Say no to specific foods: Yellowing of teeth is caused by food choices including coffee, red wine, sodas, juices, sports drinks, white wine, coloured candies and other artificially coloured foods. It will help if these foods are consumed in less quantity and frequency as they are the major contributors towards discoloration of teeth.
  2. Water after every coloured drink: Here is a habit that you must inculcate in your routine, whenever you consume any of the above mentioned food items. Post every drink or food intake which can cause tooth-staining, top it up with a glass of water. When you swirl or gargle the water in your mouth, you remove the acids that get accumulated in your mouth. It is one of the simplest preventive measures one can implement to avoid tooth stains.
  3. Dental Hygiene: Our parents and dentists kept reminding us all the time to brush twice a day and gargle with water post every food intake but did we listen to them as kids? No we did not. Proper brushing, flossing and going for dental checkups at regular intervals are sure shot ways to keep your teeth healthy for majority of your lifetime. One must develop these habits quite early in life to gain benefits from it.
  4. Whiten those Yellow teeth:  You might be at that stage of your life where inculcating the above mentioned habits won't do much good. The damage might already have been done. Your teeth are probably yellowish already and you have a history of dental cavities. In this 21st century, there are ways to whiten your teeth artificially with the many alternatives available in the market. One can opt for a solution, which can be done at home itself or go for a laser whitening which is now possible at a dentist clinic. 

So there is still hope for those who are unable to share that smile with the world due to the yellowing of teeth. Nothing is irreparable here and the health of your teeth lies in your hand.
