Long Term Solution To Missing Teeth

Many patients find that some dental substitutes such as partial dentures and dental bridges are just not strong enough and cause constant anxiety about breaking. This can have an impact on their life and prevent them enjoying it to the full, especially when it comes to eating. Patients are often looking for a more long-term and solid solution to a missing tooth and often find it in the form of a dental implant.

A dental implant is the only artificial dental substitute that replaces the whole of the tooth from root to tip. The implant itself is only the small titanium screw that makes up the root portion of the restoration. This is screwed directly into the jawbone in a procedure that sounds a lot more unpleasant than it actually is. When secure in the bone, the dentist will leave the implant for several weeks to fully fuse with the bone and soft tissue around it.

Once fully secure, the implant will now act exactly the same as an actual tooth root and can act as a base for an artificial crown to be attached. This is secured to the implant using a screw and post device. Once attached, the whole implant is incredibly sturdy and feels just like a real tooth. Thanks to the porcelain crown attached, with its enamel-like qualities, it also looks exactly like a real tooth. The other major benefit of the dental implant is that it lasts a lifetime, unlike other dental replacements which need to be replaced every ten years or so. This means once the surgery is complete you can completely forget that the implant is there and enjoy your life just as you would with a full set of real teeth. There is no need to suffer with the embarrassment of a missing tooth or with the frustration of an inadequate dental replacement.

Dental implants are as close to real teeth as are available. Because the root of the implant is secured to the jawbone like a real tooth, it acts and feels like a real tooth. If you have a missing tooth or are looking to replace an earlier dental substitute, make an appointment to see a Shimla dentist.Call 177 645 0704 for a free consultation at Goma Dental Clinic in Shimla.

Dental Implants – Excellent Tooth Replacement Option

One of the most exciting advancements in cosmetic dentistry in the past decade has been the introduction of dental implants. Dental implants are an excellent aesthetic option for the replacement of missing or lost teeth. This mode of treatment is indeed more expensive than a conventional denture, but if sufficient bone is present into which the implant can be placed, then dental implants are often the most ideal way to fill a space left by the loss of a tooth/teeth.

In the past, when you lost a tooth you would only be able to have a denture or bridge fitted. Luckily, with the developments in modern dentistry and with the use of dental implants, you can now have stronger, fully restored teeth that look and feel completely natural.Our dental implants are titanium, screw shaped attachments which are used as an artificial substitute for the root of your natural tooth. The titanium implant is inserted into the jaw and left to integrate with your bone.This titanium dental implant can be placed immediately after removing a tooth that has been electively extracted. This method often means less swelling and can minimize post operative sensitivity. In the event that a space/gap is being filled years after a tooth has been lost then this titanium rod acts as a substitute tooth root.

There are two stages to dental implants. At first the dental implant post is placed into the jaw by a specialist implant dentist (Periodontist or Oral Surgeon). When the jaw has healed over and the sutures have been removed, then it is possible to attach the man made dental crowns to the implant. These replacement teeth are attached to the dental implant, and are positioned just above the gum like real teeth which gives a beautiful aesthetic natural appearance. Not all patients are suitable for implants. A consultation with a DermaDental dentist along with specialist x-rays will determine a patient’s suitability for dental implants.

A dental implant affords the new man made tooth the much needed strength to remain in-situ within the mouth, for a very long time. Dental implants allow patients to live a completely normal life with absolutely no need to worry about dentures falling out of the mouth during eating or talking. Dental implants can also be successfully placed in order to support fixed bridges or dentures, ensuring a very stable result with minimal risk of movement during normal daily function.

Dental implants are as close to real teeth as are available. Because the root of the implant is secured to the jawbone like a real tooth, it acts and feels like a real tooth. If you have a missing tooth or are looking to replace an earlier dental substitute, make an appointment to see a dentist.For more information call Goma Dental at 177-645-0704.

Dental Implants – New Solution For Missing Teeth

Despite advances in dental care and a greater awareness of dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease, millions of people lose teeth each year due to decay or head trauma. In the past, patients wishing to replace a missing tooth had a choice between a partial denture or a dental bridge. These were, at best, only satisfactory substitutes for real teeth and always involved a significant adjustment of lifestyle for the patient. Certain foods became off limits because of the dangers of breaking parts of the prosthetic and patients were frequently worried about the embarrassment of dentures falling out at inopportune moments. All of that changed with the introduction of the dental implant.

A dental implant is a relatively new solution to missing teeth that involves drilling a small screw into the jawbone itself to act as an anchor for an artificial tooth. Because the implant is attached to the jawbone, it creates a similar feeling of stability to a real tooth, which is secured by a root.This procedure according to the experts is ideal for one or more individual teeth that have been knocked out, putting an implant in also improves the chances of not getting jaw bone decay due to a missing tooth. A damaged tooth such as a discoloured, chipped or misshaped one is a good candidate for being replaced by an implant.

The implant is usually made from titanium or other lightweight but strong metal. Once placed into the jaw at the initial appointment it is left for several weeks or months to fuse with the bone and tissue in a process called osseointegration.  When the implant has fully fused, the dentist will replace the temporary crown with a permanent one and it will look and feel exactly like a real tooth. Solid, comfortable and able to endure any food that you care to eat, a dental implant really is the closet thing to a real tooth and can put an end to any anxieties experienced with other dental substitutes. Dental implants are as close to real teeth as are available. Because the root of the implant is secured to the jawbone like a real tooth, it acts and feels like a real tooth. If you have a missing tooth or are looking to replace an earlier dental substitute, make an appointment to see a dentist.For more information call Goma Dental At 177-645-0704.

Immediate Loading Dental Implants

“One of the most critical (perhaps the most critical) factors in successful osseointegration of an implant is stability in the bone at time of placement. Relative motion between the implant body and the surrounding bone during the early healing phase is considered to be a high risk factor for early implant loss as failure of osseointegration occurs” The term osseointergration means how the implant fuses with the bone. During the critical healing period, a loaded implant would be at greatest risk of realitive motion and would theoretically be most susceptible to failure of osseointergration. Loading the implant means the time when the crown, bridge, or denture is placed on the implant and used for biting and chewing.

It is very popular now to “immediate load” an implant but there is not complete agreement in the profession as to how soon and in what locations this is prudent. We, in consultation with our surgeons, decide what patients are good candidates for immediate load. The advantage of course is you get your restoration sooner, but at what cost? The idea is for your implant to last as long as possible.The concept of immediate implant loading has recently become popular due to less trauma, reduced overall treatment time, decreased patient’s anxiety and discomfort, high patient acceptance and better function and esthetics. Nonetheless, research and understanding in this area are confuse and sometimes contradictory. Hence, it is the purpose of this review to provide rational for immediate implant loading, summarize current available literature, and analyze factors that influencing this newly introduced treatment method. Results from this review indicated that immediate implant loading achieved similar high success rate as that noted in the conventional approach (delayed protocols). However, a careful case selection, proper treatment plan, meticulous surgery and proper design of prosthesis are essential for optimal outcomes when this approach is adopted.

This procedure has one of the highest success rates in dentistry, but all are not eligible to get a dental implant done. Consult a  dentist who will take your history and examine your teeth and gums to consider you for this restorative procedure.For More information please contact Goma Dental at177-645-0704.
