Understand Teeth, Their Conditions and Treatment- 04 – What’s involved with Getting a Dental Implant

What’s Involved With Getting A Dental Implant
before-after-09-1 Understand Teeth, Their Conditions and Treatment- 04 - What's involved with Getting a Dental Implant
If you’re missing any of your natural teeth or need to have some removed, dental implants can give you the look of your original teeth. An implant is made up of a fixture, an abutment and a prosthesis. The fixture is a screw that’s inserted into the jawbone, and the abutment is a connector that fits on top of it to securely attach the prosthesis. The prosthesis is the artificial tooth. These are the steps involved in the process of getting an implant.

Tooth Removal

You may need one, several or all of your teeth removed. The screws can be placed when your jaw is healed. If you had your teeth removed in the past and your mouth is already healed, the dentist evaluates your jaw to see if the bone is able to hold implants.

Bone Grafting

If your jaw has insufficient or deteriorated bone tissue, you may need minor or major bone grafting first. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves putting bone tissue in deficient areas to build it up and make it stronger. It may take several months for a bone graft to heal. If minimal grafting is required, the screws may be placed at the time of

grafting in some cases. If your jawbone doesn’t require grafting but you recently had teeth removed, the dentist places the implant screws during a minor surgical procedure after your mouth heals from the removal of your teeth.

Fixture Bonding

The implantologist puts the fixtures in your jawbone, and it takes time for the bone tissue to bond with them. Bonding is important since it makes the implant screws strong enough to support the force of biting down.

Abutment Placement

When your jaw’s soft tissue is healed, healing caps are attached to the screws. This is a separate procedure that involves a small incision to expose each of the screw tops. After the gum heals around the caps, the caps are removed and replaced with abutments.

Prosthesis Attachment

Once the abutments are in place, an implantologist makes molds of any teeth that will be replaced. The artificial teeth are then attached. It’s important for the dental implants to match the form of your original teeth to ensure comfort and stability when you bite or chew.
There are other considerations that affect what’s involved with getting a dental implant. For example, you must discuss whether removable or fixed artificial teeth are better for your needs. A fixed prosthesis is cemented to the abutment, and you can take off a removable one to clean it. As your implantologist, I’ll help you make the right decision and will answer any of your questions about the dental implant process.

How to Maintain Results after Teeth Whitening

Your smile is often the first thing others notice about you, which is why there has been an increase in the demand for cosmetic dental treatment in recent years. One of the quickest and most efficient ways to improve the appearance of your smile is teeth whitening. With many whitening options, including in-office and take-home services, it’s easy to achieve the results you want.

After a patient undergoes a teeth-whitening, they’re often concerned with how to maintain their bright new smile. Because teeth whitening is not a permanent cosmetic improvement, here are some ways in which you can prolong your results:

1. Avoid Food and Beverages That Stain Teeth
Many of the foods and beverages we love work against our cosmetic goals and create surface stains that are yellow in tint. Some of these dietary choices include coffee, tea, red wine, soft drinks, and berries. If you do enjoy these often, it’s best to rinse your teeth immediately after.

2. Drink Through Straws
Some beverages are best enjoyed through a straw, and those include drinks that are highly pigmented, such as cola and black tea. Exposure to these liquids can be lessened when a straw is used.

3. Reduce Eliminate Habits That Harm Tooth Enamel
Patients who smoke have heard a thousand different ways their habit impacts their health, but what they may not consider is the impact smoking has on their teeth. Smoking can cause dental enamel to appear dark or yellow, at a minimum.  If you’re considering teeth whitening treatment, it’s also best to evaluate ways to limit smoking or kick the habit altogether.

4. Eat Fibrous Foods
Fruits and veggies that are high in fiber actually scrub the surface of teeth as you chew. What’s more, these foods boost saliva production, which helps clean teeth. Keep in mind that some fruits are naturally high in sugar, so it’s still recommended that you rinse after eating them.

5. Maintain Proper Oral Hygiene
As with all aspects of dental health, proper oral hygiene has a significant impact on the way your smile looks as well. Taking proper care of your smile, including brushing at least twice a day, can help maintain the results of your teeth whitening treatment.

Which Mouthwash is Best for Me?

Picking the Right Mouthwash For Your Teeth and Gums

Brushing​ and flossing ​your teeth is very important, and most people also use some kind of mouthwash as part of their oral health regimen.  It prevents bad breath and promotes healthy teeth and gums. The question of what mouthwash is the best one to use always tends to come up. We will break down the answer below in a few easy-to-follow sections. This will help you to determine your needs.

Fluoride​ Mouthwash ​
This is important to help prevent tooth decay. This type of mouthwash also works to prevent cavities​ and lower thermal sensitivity if used regularly​. It helps to strengthen your teeth and the enamel.

Freshening the Breath
These contain no alcohol​ and include special ingredients to hinder bacterial growth in the mouth, reducing gingivitis and bad breath.  ​This option does exactly what it implies and is good for patients who have bad breath after brushing. ​It is always important to get​ regular dental check up and teeth cleaning to keep your mouth and teeth in optimal health, which saves you a lot of money and time in a dental office in the long term.

The Antibacterial Option
Are you concerned with bad breath and gum disease? This is going to be a good one to use. This mouthwash does what all the others above can do, but it takes it one step further.

This product can be bought over-the-counter. It is more concentrated than the ones your dentist may prescribe for you. As a precaution, ask your dentist before you use this mouthwash.
