Life-Changing Reasons for Getting Dental Implants

DSC00772As a substitute for a missing or lost tooth it is hard to beat a dental implant for realism and authenticity. Dental implants are the only dental replacement that restores the whole tooth from crown to root and as a result is the sturdiest restoration available.

There are many reasons for losing a tooth ranging from accidental damage to gum disease but whatever the cause it can be a very painful and upsetting experience at any age. If a tooth has been knocked out or extracted due to decay it can be the cause of further dental complications causing pain and anxiety so it is always recommended by dentists to replace teeth as soon as possible. If a gap is left in the dental arc then it can cause the other teeth to move or rotate. This can lead to complications with bite and also increases the likelihood of further dental infection.

In view of this, here are some life-changing reasons for getting dental implants if you are losing your natural teeth:

* Dental implants preserve your jawbone’s integrity
Human bones require stimulation to maintain their size and density; if you don’t use them, you lose them.You must understand that each tooth has a specific job, and the loss of even just one, can seriously impair your bite and chewing capacity.So, when a tooth is lost or removed, the underlying bone is no longer stimulated by the pressure from chewing, which is crucial for maintaining your mouth healthy and the bone strong.A dental implant provides this stimulation, and helps maintain the bone’s integrity, because it works like a real tooth.The sooner you get a dental implant after losing a tooth, the more likely the bone will remain intact.

* Dental implants help you look younger
When we are young, everything is in place, and that’s why we look so good.Our teeth and jawbone support our facial features, keeping them in place; thus, when we lose a tooth, our face begins to transform, because things are shifting under our skin.Dental implants assist in slowing down this degenerative process and can even restore the missing structures.When you are able to smile and laugh without reservations, and eat anything you like, your morale, wellbeing and self-image improve dramatically.

* Dental implants help you speak better
Many older people use removable partials and/or full dentures that are bulky, difficult to wear, frequently come loose, and very often cause embarrassment as well as some difficulty when speaking.
To the contrary, dental implants are like real teeth, freeing one of all these inconveniences.

* Dental implants help maintain the tone and size of facial muscles
As soon as you stop exercising a muscle, it gets smaller, and there are numerous muscles underneath the skin of your face.

* Dental implants last much longer
Around 90% of normal dental implants are 100% successful, typically lasting twenty years or more.
Due to ordinary wear and dental decay, traditional dental bridges last between five and ten years, and eventually must be replaced; however, dental implants are free of decay because they are made out of titanium.

* Dental implants help prevent teeth from shifting places and distorting your bite
In the dental arch, there is a place and function for every tooth, and when one is removed, the others start moving because of the lack of pressure from the missing tooth.This can cause bite problems as well as the loosening of teeth, which then can lead to abnormal stresses and periodontal disease.
Finally, the result is more tooth loss.Dental implants can act as bookends, securing spaces where teeth are missing.

* Dental implants improve your smile
A smile is worth a thousand words… but when your teeth are not healthy, it can really affect your self-image.Dental implants can replace any missing tooth, helping preserve the bone that is needed to support full and beautiful lips. In fact, one of the most important uses of implants is to prevent bone loss in the front of your mouth.

* Dental implants help a person understand what is happening in their mouth
Teeth help you feel things in your mouth; you are aware when you bite on a tooth, but when it is removed, it is like cutting a limb off. You are unable to properly feel what you are chewing.While dental implants are not teeth, they do function as such, by putting pressure on the jawbone in a way similar to natural teeth; thus, offering the natural sensations expected when chewing.

* Dental implants work better than dentures
Dental implants last longer than typical removable dentures, are much more comfortable, and provide a dramatically better quality of life for the person receiving them.

While the investment may be slightly higher than that of traditional dental care, dental implants are well worth it in the long run.If you want more information and are interested in top quality dental implants at extremely affordable prices, contact us at 07974106163

Porcelain Veneers For You Dream smile

There are many dental problems that can spoil the appearance of the teeth and make people ashamed of their smiles. In some cases this can be the source of real emotional problems that affects self-confidence and self-esteem but there are ways to improve your smile with various cosmetic dentistry treatments.

As you may have seen on one of the many TV makeover shows on our screens in recent years, porcelain veneers are capable of completely transforming the teeth and creating stunning healthy looking smiles. These are thin ceramic shells that fit over the top of the existing teeth restoring the size, color and shape of damaged teeth. This damage could have occurred as the result of discoloration, worn enamel or even structural damage to the teeth.

The veneers are made of porcelain and will be specially designed to compliment your mouth and smile. Your dentist will construct the veneers according to dental mould or digital x-rays taken at an earlier appointment. Modern fabrication techniques have radically shortened the time it takes to make veneers and the finished product is now of a superior quality.

In the past, porcelain veneers took several weeks to manufacture in the lab after several appointments to measure and design had been carried out. This involved lengthy and uncomfortable dental moulds and rounds of x-rays, but in recent years new technology called Cerec has revolutionised the way that veneers are designed and manufacturedCerec utilises CAD/CAM technology, meaning computer aided design, computer aided manufacture. With the aid of new technology such as digital x-rays and three-dimensional imaging the dentist is now able to design the veneers on a computer screen before instructing a computer to sculpt the veneers from specially chosen porcelain. This has drastically reduced the time you will need to spend in the surgery and made treatment a lot more pleasant.

The veneers are cemented in place using dental bonding, a resin substance that is very hard wearing, adding another layer of protection to the teeth. The ceramic itself is also very tough and will protect the teeth from further damage. You may have seen the incredible effects possible using the latest veneer techniques on one of the many TV makeover shows that populate our screens at the moment.

Porcelain is such a good choice for veneers as it very closely resembles actual tooth enamel even to the point of being slightly transparent.These look and feel just like real teeth and with the right care and attention will last up to twenty years before they need replacing. Not only will they look great but they will also protect the teeth from external damage by plaque and bacteria.This means that not only will your teeth look and feel great, but they will also look very realistic. Find out more about veneers at your dentist the next time you go for a check up appointment.

Relation Between Diabetes and Periodontal (Gum) Disease

If you suffer from diabetes then you need to take extra care in your oral hygiene program . The fact that diabetics have a lower immune system is also something they need to address. Infections are more easily contracted by a diabetic, and as diabetes is a blood related disease it is especially important that the gums are kept healthy and cut free. It is now known through research that oral cuts caused by soft and infected gums, are a major gateway of bacteria based infections in the blood stream. Diabetics have enough problems keeping their sugar and fat levels down to a bare minimum, that they really don’t need to have more problems through a bad oral hygiene program.

At the first sign of an infection a diabetic should get a dentist to investigate the problem, it is so important that antibiotics are given early to bring down the infection and keep the swelling to a minimum. Your dentist is there to help you with your diabetes and gum disease problems, as well as your doctor. The way your dentist will help you is by keeping an extra eye on your gums, and by advising you through the dental hygiene nurse and those 6 monthly check ups. Diabetes comes in 2 forms which are type 1 and type 2, type 2 is generally kept under control by diet and /or tablets, but it is type 1 that will concern your dentist more as this one is controlled by insulin injections, diet and tablets. Type 1 diabetics are more prone to gum disease, and that can advance into Gingivitis which will eat away the gum line quite quickly. A diabetic’s immune system cannot keep getting antibiotics as the system will become immune to them, so it is so much more important that type 1 sufferers in particular follow an extra carefully planned oral hygiene regime.

Diabetes that is not properly controlled can lead to periodontal (gum) diseases in both young and old people. Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums and bone that hold the teeth in place.Because of blood vessel changes that occur with diabetes, the thickened blood vessels can impair the efficiency of the flow of nutrients and removal of wastes from body tissues. This impaired blood flow can weaken the gums and bone, making them more susceptible to infection.In addition, if diabetes is poorly controlled, higher glucose levels in the mouth fluids will encourage the growth of bacteria that can cause gum disease.A third factor, smoking, is harmful to oral health even for people without diabetes. However, a person with diabetes who smokes is at a much greater risk for gum disease than a person who does not have diabetes.Paired with poor oral hygiene, diabetes can lead to gingivitis, the first stage of periodontal disease, or to periodontitis, severe gum disease.

Specific treatment for periodontal disease will be determined by your dentist based on:

* your age, overall health, and medical history
* extent of the disease
* your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
* expectations for the course of the disease
* your opinion or preference

Treatment may include any, or a combination of, the following:

* plaque removal
Deep cleaning can help remove the plaque and infected tissue in the early stages of the disease, while smoothing the damaged root surfaces of the teeth. The gums can then be reattached to the teeth.

* medication

* surgery
When the disease is advanced, the infected areas under the gums will be cleaned, and the tissues will then be reshaped or replaced. Types of surgeries include:

o pocket reduction
o a regeneration procedure
o a soft-tissue graft
o crown lengthening

* dental implants

Proper care of your teeth and gums can go a long way in preventing the onset of oral problems associated with diabetes.For more information call GomaDental at 177-645-0704

Treatment Of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep.Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They often occur 5 to 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound.Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep 3 or more nights each week. You often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep when your breathing pauses or becomes shallow.This results in poor sleep quality that makes you tired during the day. Sleep apnea is one of the leading causes of excessive daytime sleepiness.

The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. This most often means that the airway has collapsed or is blocked during sleep. The blockage may cause shallow breathing or breathing pauses.When you try to breathe, any air that squeezes past the blockage can cause loud snoring. Obstructive sleep apnea happens more often in people who are overweight, but it can affect anyone.

Untreated sleep apnea can:

* Increase the risk for high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, and diabetes
* Increase the risk for or worsen heart failure
* Make irregular heartbeats more likely
* Increase the chance of having work-related or driving accidents

Major Signs and Symptoms

One of the most common signs of obstructive sleep apnea is loud and chronic (ongoing) snoring. Pauses may occur in the snoring. Choking or gasping may follow the pauses.The snoring usually is loudest when you sleep on your back

Others signs and symptoms of sleep apnea may include:

* Morning headaches
* Memory or learning problems and not being able to concentrate
* Feeling irritable, depressed, or having mood swings or personality changes
* Urination at night
* A dry throat when you wake up

Treatment Of Sleep Apnea

* Avoid alcohol and medicines that make you sleepy. They make it harder for your throat to stay open while you sleep.
* Lose weight if you’re overweight or obese. Even a little weight loss can improve your symptoms.
* Sleep on your side instead of your back to help keep your throat open. You can sleep with special pillows or shirts that prevent you from sleeping on your back.
* Keep your nasal passages open at night with nose sprays or allergy medicines, if needed. Talk to your doctor about whether these treatments might help you.
* Stop smoking.
* A mouthpiece, sometimes called an oral appliance
* Breathing Devices-Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
* Surgery

Sleep apnea often goes undiagnosed. Doctors usually can’t detect the condition during routine office visits. Also, there are no blood tests for the condition. Most people who have sleep apnea don’t know they have it because it only occurs during sleep.Lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, surgery, and/or breathing devices can successfully treat sleep apnea in many people. Treatment can improve your overall health and happiness as well as your quality of sleep.Consult your doctor today for more information.

Ankylos Implant System In Shimla

The Ankylos system was developed in 1985 and has been in clinical use since 1987. Some of its significant design features include (1) a progressive thread structure of the endosseous implant body for targeted load distribution to the apically positioned spongy bone; and (2) the gap-free subgingival tapered connection to the abutments.Ankylos Implant System meets both the patients’ and the dentists’ standards of success and is suitable for use as single tooth replacements, bridge abutments, and retention elements for all regions and prosthetic indications.The implants were considered successful if the following criteria were met:

* clinical stability and function;
* no inflammation of the peri-implant hard and soft tissue;
* no progressive loss of the peri-implant bone;
* no progressive loss of the peri-implant mucosa;
* satisfaction of the patient.

The Ankylos implants are made of biologically neutral pure titanium. As the human body tolerates it, the possibility of rejection is excluded thanks to the characteristics of the material. In order to keep them touch proof, the implants are packed in sterile glass: the supporting screw is put inside the superstructure and can only be removed right before the insertion of the implant. The rough surface of the implants enhances the perfect fit and healing of the “new root”. The special shape of ankylos implants ensures ideal fixing directly after the placement of the implant and protects the jawbone during mastication since the implant perfectly adjusts to its physiological characteristics. Four year clinical experience shows that thanks to the special form of the ankylos implant screw, the introduction of the occlusal force is carried out without overloading the bone substance. The ankylos implants are available in four different diameters and length that provide a solution for all implant problems.
The advantages of the Ankylos:

* high level of security
* long term aesthetic stability
* cemented replacements
* it ensures an optimal condition for immediate load
* minimal risk of infections
* low risk of the loss of the amount of bone
* short therapy time
* high quality and affordable

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 Implant dentist at Goma Dental or Call 177-645-0704.

Dental Implants : Smile With Confidence

There are a number of dental procedures available to replace a missing tooth, but among the most realistic is a dental implant. Because it is anchored directly to the jawbone itself, it can offer a greater degree of stability than a dental bridge or conventional crown.

For patients with missing teeth, it can often be a great source of embarrassment that can affect self-confidence and cause self-esteem issues. This can be a significant hindrance, especially considering that smiling is one of the most effective ways of communicating emotions.But a missing tooth also has more long-term physical consequences. A build up of bacteria can occur in the hollow left by the tooth. This hollow is difficult to clean and can lead to unpleasant infection sin the mouth. Vacant space in the dental arc can also encourage the remaining teeth to shift about and lean. This can cause painful jaw conditions called TMJs and lead to unpleasant and sub-conscious teeth grinding, also known as bruxism. A dental implant could be the answer when considering replacing a missing tooth.

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. 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.It is this strength that makes them comparable to a real tooth. Dental implants have existed for some years but recent advances in technology have made them the option of choice for patients wanting to replace a missing tooth.

A dental implant is the most realistic substitute for a real tooth. Many patients opt for implants, despite the extra cost, because of the feeling of security and permanency they provide. If you have a missing tooth, or are considering changing an existing artificial dental appliance, visit your dentist and ask about dental implants.

Dental Implants – Solution For Missing Teeth

Having a missing tooth or teeth can be the source of great embarrassment and the root of self-confidence and esteem issues. After all, we all want to have a perfect smile and a missing tooth is a definite barrier to that, but a missing tooth can have other health implications beyond the psychological.

If there is a tooth missing in the dental arch it can cause all the other teeth to lean into the space. This can cause alignment problems that can also affect bite, causing irritation and the development of painful jaw conditions called TMJ. It can also be the case that a missing tooth can cause sagging of the facial tissue. Teeth act as rigid supports for the facial muscles and if they are missing the muscles can lapse giving a sunken and unhealthy appearance to the face. Therefore it is important to replace the missing tooth as soon as possible to limit the effects of a missing tooth.

Therefore, it is important to replace missing teeth for physical reasons as well as cosmetic. There are several options for patients with missing teeth. A dental bridge or partial denture provide a more flexible and short-term solution to a missing tooth but many patients find these too flimsy or unstable to be comfortable. One form of artificial tooth provides a stable and realistic replacement for a real tooth and as such is increasingly becoming the choice of substitute for patients. A dental implant is a solid metal screw that is secured directly into the jawbone, to which an artificial crown is attached. Because the implant is anchored to the jaw itself it provides a level of stability second only to a real tooth. With the advances in ceramic technology, the attached crown can also be incredibly lifelike and does not prohibit the eating of certain foods like bridges or dentures.

Dental implants can usually be fitted in two or three sessions with the dentist. The screw will be implanted during the first session and then allowed to fuse with the bone and gum in a process called osseointergration. This usually takes two to three weeks before the remaining parts of the implant can be secured. 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 on dental implants in Shimla please call Goma Dental at 177-645-0704.

Get The Best Dental Implant In India

There are several options available to replace missing teeth. Some patients opt to have a partial denture, others choose to have a fixed dental bridge. Both dental bridges and dentures have their advantages, most notably that they are both relatively affordable. However, they both also suffer from a degree of impermanency and are at times prone to breaking. Some patients are looking for a dental substitute with a greater degree of solidity. This is one of the reasons why dental implants are becoming the option of choice for patients to replace missing teeth.

A missing tooth can be the source of embarrassment. It can make people reluctant to smile for fear of exposing what is a very visible flaw. Missing teeth can also be damaging for your dental health. The hollows left by missing teeth can be breeding grounds for decay-causing bacteria. Gaps in the teeth can also encourage existing teeth to lean, causing painful interruptions in the bite. Missing teeth can also be the cause of facial tissue sinking and loss of profile. For these reasons it is important to replace the missing tooth as soon as possible and a dental implant is the most secure method of doing just that.

A dental implant takes the form of a tapered screw that is anchored into the jawbone. This acts as a solid base for a post and artificial tooth, or crown, to be attached. They work particularly well for patients who have strong and healthy jawbones and teeth. Because they are so solid dental implants do not prohibit the eating of certain foods that other dental substitutes can. Neither do dental implants require any kind of messy dental bonding or adhesives.A dental implant will take two or three sessions to fix.

Patients who have jawbones and gums which are strong, will particularly benefit from a dental implant. A good standard of oral hygiene is needed to maintain the implant but the permanency it provides really sets it apart from other dental substitutes. Many patients opt for implants, despite the extra cost, because of the feeling of security and permanency they provide. If you have a missing tooth, or are considering changing an existing artificial dental appliance, visit your dentist and ask about dental implants.
