Dental Implants - Types and Benefits

Dental Implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant doesn't come loose like a denture can.

Why tooth loss matters? 
A missing tooth or teeth can not only take away from the beauty of your smile, but tooth loss can also have many negative effects on your oral health, including:

  1. Bone loss
  2. Shifting and drifting teeth
  3. Bite changes
  4. Chewing difficulty
  5. Wearing down of remaining teeth
  6. Changes in the jaw joint

Types of Implant Placement:
Whether an implant is placed immediately or in 2 phases depends on a variety of factors like bone density, initial fit of the implant during surgery, the other teeth, area of jaw, loads received during chewing etc.

Dental implant placement can be of two types:

  1. Immediate single stage placement: In this type we place an implant and give you at least a temporary crown immediately, followed by a permanent crown shortly thereafter.
  2. Delayed (2 stage) Implants: Such a placement is usually to safeguard the implant from any early forces when its just healing and fusing within the bone. After the placement the implant is kept covered below the gum for 3 months and uncovered after this period to give you a permanent crown.

Benefits:
Now that you know about the different types, it is time to move on to the benefits of getting these.

  1. Long lasting: Compared to other treatments such as tooth bridges which last for 5-10 years, dental implants can last for an entire lifetime if maintained properly. The only part to replace is the crown.
  2. Mimicking natural teeth: Your replacement teeth will feel similar to your actual teeth, so you do not need to worry about your self-image issues. Flash that wonderful smile of yours without thinking over it the second time.
  3. Preserve surrounding teeth: When an implant is inserted in place of a missing tooth, adjacent healthy teeth are not damaged.
  4. Comfort: Dental implants being a fixed replacement they have none of the problems that removable dentures or other substitutes may cause. Patients who replace all of their teeth with dental implants can feel more comfortable talking, smiling and eating.

Things to keep in mind post Dental Implant:

  1. Careful brushing: Only soft bristle brush needs to be used in this regard and do not pressurize the treated areas. In this case, tenderness needs to be considered so that brushing can be conducted carefully without injuring or hurting implants.
  2. Maintaining oral hygiene: Oral hygiene is the most important thing, and this is the reason you are advised to use any special mouthwash or any other flossing solution. This step needs to be continued for preventing the growth of unwanted infectious elements as that can ruin the implants completely. You should also carefully brush your teeth without affecting the implanted area.
  3. Avoid smoking: You are not allowed to continue smoking after implants, as that can make the situation complicated, as a result, of which you might even experience dreadful consequences. You should follow different steps to completely curtail the smoking habit from your lifestyle. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

Dear lybrate-user, it appears that you have a gum disease in which there are food deposits within the gums which make them weak and swollen. There is also bleeding from the gums and foul smell from the mouth. The teeth become loose leading gingivitis and later periodontitis. Kindly get your teeth cleaned by undergoing professional scaling. Take care.

Crown will not lead to any type of tooth decay. You can go ahead for crowns without hesitation. There are other alternate also like orthodontic treatment, composite or ceramic veneers. But which is best for you I need to know the position of teeth and proper evaluation of space available.

How to care of teeth? Like yellow after eating pan mava? please give your suggestion.
Long term use of Pan Mawa can permanently stain and damage your teeth. It can even lead to Oral Cancer in the long run. Quit this habit right away for a better quality of life. Brush your teeth twice daily with a fluoridated toothpaste. Visit your dentist for a professional cleaning of your teeth called Scaling and Polishing. You may even think of getting a Teeth Whitening procedure done to serve as a motivational factor for you to quit this detrimental habit. Good Luck!

Gum diseases can be easily treated at the initial stage itself. Visiting a dentist and getting the accumulated tartar and plaque removed can stop the disease then and there.
