It is always important to have a good dentist, even when you are quite young and don’t, as yet have no cavities. This is where doctorwisdom.com can help you as we never quite know when dental problems may strike,
Even when we do take care of our teeth difficulties can arise, and if you are playing a contact sport and knock out a tooth you may find that you need an implant, this is where doctorwisdom.com can help you. In fact the older you get the more likely you are to need dental implants because teeth begin to crumble and break. A good implant will last you for about 15 years before it needs replacing.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant consists of a piece of titanium or other material that is screwed into the jaw over the roots of the missing tooth. Given time, the bone grows around the implant and holds it in place.
Then an artificial tooth, a crown is attached to the metal and fills the gap left by the missing tooth. The crown is custom-made to look just the same as the other teeth in color and shape. Doctorwisdom.com will perfectly match the new crown to your teeth, and no one will know that there was ever a tooth missing.
Reasons for needing a Dental Implant
- When you have one or more teeth missing due to decay.
- When bridge work is planned to fill in a gap, dental implants can be placed at either end of the span to create a strong bridge.
- When a tooth is knocked out during contact sport, and cannot be found.
Do Dental Implants Need Special Care?
No special care is required for dental implants, and you will probably be advised to brush and floss as normal and to see your dentist for regular checkups.
Are There any Risks to Dental Implants
- infection can occur
- injury to blood vessels
- nerve damage
- sinus conditions can be worse afterward
The alternatives to dental implants are wearing dentures or having bridge work done, or in some cases going around without any teeth at all, which is not a good look. When we lose our teeth we soon lose bone, and this face tends to fall in and lose shape. This look is very aging and is best avoided at all costs.
