- DENTAL IMPLANTS RESEMBLES ROOTS
- The main benefit of dental implants is that an implant connects directly to the jaw bone. When a tooth is lost, bone loss will occur in that region because the root is no longer stimulating and stabilizing the bone. By using titanium implant, we biochemically replace the root..
- WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LOSE A TOOTH?
- BONE LOSS: When you lose a tooth, especially a back tooth, you may feel you do not require it to be replaced, as you have plenty of other teeth. However, there is more bone loss going on under the surface of tooth once it is lost. The people who have lost most of their teeth and have not replaced it, appear to have a caved-in appearance to their mouths because of bone loss.
- COSMETIC AND FUNCTIONAL PROBLEMS: Besides causing damage to the bone, tooth loss affects remaining teeth as well. Loss of teeth creates cosmetic issues and bite problems. Loss of tooth can also affect facial structures such as the jaw and its joints, muscles, and even the skin. If several teeth are lost, patient also suffer from poor nutrition.
- REBUILDING BONE
- When the supporting alveolar bone is lost, it can be rebuild through grafting, we rebuild bone to fuse with and support an implant. But it is advised to have a dental implant as early as possible after the tooth is lost for the best cosmetic and functional outcome.
- Replacing a tooth with an implant and a crown is mostly not a one-day process. The implant needs time to properly fuse to the bone and create a healthy fusion before the crown can be attached and full bite force can be applied. Mostly it will take a few months to complete the process.
