What Are Dental Implants

People loose lose their teeth for various reasons ranging from gum diseases, bone loss conditions,dental cavities, injuries and age. A missing tooth, particularly at the front of your mouth, can lead to changes in your smile and loss of confidence. Apart from aesthetic reasons, a missing tooth also impacts the way you talk, and eat your food. Over time, the bone mass which was supporting the tooth starts eroding and causes the loosening of your neighboring teeth. To prevent this and regain the confidence of a beautiful smile, most people, as well as doctors, prefer dental implants.

Why are dental implants the preferred option?

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth since they are the closest thing to getting back your original pearly whites. Most patients prefer implants to other tooth replacement options like dentures and dental bridges since they offer the maximum stability and durability. Patients maintaining their dental implants properly can expect them to last around 25-30 years and even more. Besides looking like real teeth, they also function like your natural ones. That alone is the reason why so many people consider them.

Now let's understand what are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium metal posts which are used to replace the roots of a missing tooth and support a custom made crown. They are placed in your jawbone through a minor surgical procedure that is done under local anesthesia at your doctor's chamber. To replace your missing tooth with an implant, the dentist will attach a crown that takes the place of your visible tooth. After your implant has fused with your jaw bone and healed, the crown will be changed to a permanent one that matches the colour of your teeth flawlessly. This process can be used to replace a single tooth or a number of teeth. Unlike bridges and dentures, crowns which are fitted to these implants do not shift or slip. The secure fit gives a more natural look. It also gives comfort while speaking and chewing food.

Is a dental implant very painful?

A dental implant is as painful as any other procedure done by your dentist, for eg a filling. Done under local anesthesia, an implant does not leave any open wound so the healing process is quicker. Minor discomfort after the placement of the implants can be relieved through normal painkillers like ibuprofen. Depending on which part of the mouth you have lost your tooth, your dental implant procedure should take less than an hour to complete.

Healthy gums for implants

If one is considering going for an implant, then you must know that implants need healthy gums with enough bone support. Oral hygiene is of utmost importance and regular dental visits should be made so as to ensure long term success of the implants.

Care of the Implants:

Usually dental implants are very successful and here are few steps to help you take care of them to get long term benefits:

  • Good oral hygiene: Brush twice a day and make flossing a routine. Use of interdental brushes
  • can help clean the areas around the implant.
  • Abstain from smoking as it can make your bones weak and result in implant failure.
  • Avoid putting too much pressure on the implants: Eating food items like gums and candies can
  • break the crown of both artificial and natural teeth.
  • Visit your dentist every six months.

If you wish to discuss about any specific dental problem, you can consult a dentist and ask a free question.

Give her a pain killer now and then consult a dentist. Pain killer is only going to give her temporary relief. The cause of pain can only be found out after a check up.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

If you have gums have swollen which has developed in 3 months, then may I know if you have started any medication prior to 3-4 months. If yes, it can be a side effect of that. If not, sweeling and inflammation of your gums is because of tarter deposit, you need a normal scaling and gums treatment procedure. Tc.

Instead of suffering get it removed coz we have no use of wisdom tooth. We need 28 teeth to chew our food since that tooth has to cum according to the nature so it comes but due insufficient space for the tooth to accomdate it gives pain.

Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing holes (cavities or caries). In severe cases, teeth may be ‘eaten’ right down to the gum.

Bad breath is associated with periodontal problem. It seems you might be having periodontal problem. C/as pyorrhea. You need to get rid of it. It needs aggressive therapy. You need to make a habit of rinsing your mouth everytime you eat something and brush regularly (once in the morning before meals and once at night after dinner, add a mouthwash for better oral hygiene. If the problem persist, it would be better to consult a dentist personally for a more appropriate diagnosis. And accordingly the treatment can be tailored as per your diagnosis.

Keep a cotton dipped in clove oil in the cavity of the aching tooth. This will give you some relief. You can take combiflam/brufen tablet if pain is still there. Can wait for few hours to see whether pain subsides. Visit your dentist for better diagnosis and treatment.

I have three fully impacted wisdom teeth. But they are not infected. From last 6 months I have jaw, throat, ear, tongue & tooth pains. Meanwhile I suffered from throat infection which was due to Enterobacter clocae. I have also reactive lymphnodes in neck. Can impacted wisdom teeth cause all such symptoms?

Certified Implantologist, BDS
Dentist, Bangalore
Hello lybrate-user, wisdom teeth do cause pain in and around teeth and this pain is often referred to jaw, throat and ear. If these wisdom teeth are always causing discomfort and aren't helpfull in biting or chewing food then I would suggest you to go for an intentional extraction of these teeth. I am sure you'll be much more comfortable after it.

MY QUESTION SUBJECTED TO DENTIST. I WANT TO POLISH AND LEVELING MY TWO TEETH.AND I HAVE A TWO TEETH ITS VERY SHARP.WHICH KIND OF TREATMENT IS REQUIRED FOR THIS TWO TEETH.

Hi for your sharp tooth, we can do grinding to an extent by checking the amount of enamel present. Also we need to know the cause of the sharpness. Might be acidity is one. For leveling of the teeth we need to check the condition of the tooth, if you can send us a picture it will be clearer.
