- Dental implants are the latest in the world of dentistry for teeth rectification. With their use, a patient can come as close as is possible to attain their original smile, the manner of eating and that of smiling back again. Dental implants are a permanent solution – not like dentures which are to be replaced every five to seven years. Also, dental implants do not need to be removed each night. Once they are put in place, they stay there forever. They can last the entire duration of the lifetime of a person if they care for well and proper.
- Dental implants make use of a technique in which a titanium screw is drilled into the jaw bone. The jaw bone grows around the screw naturally. In a matter of three to four months, the screw becomes firmly implanted inside the jaw bone. A dental cap or crown is placed atop the screw to function as the tooth as the world sees. Thus, as mentioned above, these are permanent fixtures and do not need to be touched even other than some periodic adjustments which may need to be made by the dentist.
- Dental implants make use of a procedure by which the new set of teeth remains firmly in place. Also, since imprints are taken before the actual procedure of implanting begins, the person gets his or her smile back to almost normal with these new ‘teeth.’ As mentioned above, even the way of eating and talking of a person gets restored back. It is not like dentures which are to be removed each night and placed in a jar with a cleansing solution. The treatment for dental implants does take time, but after it is completed, it is so much worth the effort which has gone into it.
- With dentures, one is a bit scared of the dentures coming off if a person laughs too loudly. This is not the problem with dental implants. Once in place, there is very little that can happen to them. Also, with dentures, there is an issue of them snapping or cracking up if the person bites into a food item which is too hard or sticky. There is hardly any such problem with dental implants. Once the crown is placed atop the titanium screw, normal eating and talking habits of a person can resume without much fear of any mishap occurring. Dental implants, however, do need to be cared for. A person should develop good oral hygiene habits like brushing teeth twice daily for at least two minutes each time. Also regular dental flossing once a day should be done. Also, it is best to visit the dentist periodically to have the dental implants checked up time and again so that any adjustments if required, can be made in time to prevent any untoward incident from happening. Also, it is best to brush each time after consuming food or drink. However, this may not be possible every time. Hence, the solution is to at least rinse the mouth thoroughly well each time.
