We all are prone to lose our teeth at some point of time..Sometimes in young age due to periodontal disease we lose our tooth/ teeth. Once we lose it has to be replaced within specific time period. We have discussed this in our earlier blog http://dhapekarsdentalcare.com/missing-teeth-never-ignore/.
Timely decisions not only save your time and money but also the outcome of the treatment becomes more predictable. After tooth removal always follow-up with the doctor for the replacement options which are best suitable for you. Teeth can be replaced by various means as removable dentures, fixed bridge etc.Dental implant is the most natural way to replace teeth. It has numerous advantages over the traditional dentures and bridge that are used to replace the teeth.
Dental bridge and acrylic dentures needs support from the adjacent teeth or gums. This needs the trimming of healthy adjacent teeth to gain support for bridge or dentures.
It has been proved that bone under dental bridges losses faster than in case of implants. Bone loss can create a gap between bridge margin and gums. This causes food entrapment in the space. Dental implant mimics the replacement as a natural tooth and maintains the blood supply of the jaw bone.
Dental Implants restore the chewing functions far better than those of conventional dentures. It doesn’t have bulky dental flanges as in other dentures so they are quite comfortable with greater acceptance.
How Long It Will Last?
They Are For Your Rest Of Life! Yes it is true.
Dental implants are made of pure titanium which is a biocompatible material. If placed properly with experienced hands and with nice post operative care they can last for your rest of life. Accidents or any major bone disease are the exceptions.
Am I Too Old To Get Implants In My Mouth?
With lots of research it has been proved that the elderly patients even in their 80s can have successful implant placement in long run. They improve their nutrition by regaining their chewing abilities as they were when natural teeth were present. It improves their quality and longevity of life.
Cost Effective Test.
It is a myth that the implants are costly in fact on a contrary they are very pocket friendly in long run. A implant with regular follow-up and proper hygiene maintenance it can last for your entire life. Bridge or other denture needs replacement depending on the quality used. So, repeated replacements incur additional cost in long run. At times cavitations starts under the crown and you may have to loose your additional teeth making it more costly. Being made of titanium there are no chances of cavity formation in case of dental implants.
Single Tooth And Full Mouth Implants
Implant can replace the single fallen tooth or it can replace your complete set of tooth. Replacing the single tooth requires the tooth trimming of neighboring tooth to gain support whereas in implants there is no need of support from the adjacent teeth. Implants are placed in bone and get its required support from the jaw bones.
The number of implant which is required to replace the teeth depends on the quality of bone you have.
Earlier The Better
Once we lose the tooth the maximum amount of bone we lose naturally due to no activity is more in 1st year. An implant makes the bone active and helps in maintaining the bone in healthy state. In some cases it is possible now to place the implant on the same visit scheduled for removing of the tooth.
One of the main reasons of a severe headache is a prolonged toothache. Toothaches are extremely painful and can prevent you from enjoying your food. It becomes difficult to speak if toothache is unbearable.
Causes of Toothache:
Tooth fracture resulting from an accident.
Chewing gum continuously and grinding the teeth.
How does toothache cause headache?
Sometimes, a tooth becomes very inflamed and since the nerve endings are connected to the brain, this, in turn makes the pain travel to different parts of your head. Generally, people with bad cavities or caries have major headaches and migraines.
The inside of a tooth consists of a pulp. This pulp can get infected. If this tooth happens to lie in the upper jaw, then the pain is transferred to the head which can cause a severe headache.
Headaches can also be caused by TMJD (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction). This usually occurs spreading from the face, jawline and neck right up to the head. In extreme cases, the jaws might be locked up and it makes clicking or grinding noises. Misalignment of the teeth can be a cause by TMJD which in turn affects the head greatly.
- If you are detected with TMJD, your jaws need to be healed, first thing you should do is to visit an expert dentist in order to get the underlying cause of toothache treated. It is always recommended to get a proper treatment started, do not emphasize the use of self-medications.
- If the headache persists due to toothache, it is advisable to take a painkiller as prescribed by your dentist.
- Use an ice pack or a towel dipped in cold icy water, and hold it against the area of toothache. Do not put ice directly on your tooth as it might increase the pain ten folds due to tooth sensitivity.
- You can also apply numbing gel so that your tooth stops hurting. This in turn, will make your headache reduce.
- Toothache is also caused by small amounts of food which get stuck inside your teeth or between your gums, so it is necessary to clean your teeth thoroughly and floss it regularly to avoid toothache.
- Avoid chocolates and sweets. If you still get a cavity, you should visit your dentist immediately.
- Dental abscess also causes headache. In this situation, a root canal treatment is recommended.
