Currently, the rate of tooth loss has reduced, but tooth loss is still a big problem to deal with. As we grow of age, we tend to suffer frequent tooth loss.
No matter what causes your tooth loss, finding a long lasting solution is paramount.
With various studies linking low self-esteem and emotional issues with tooth loss, how can we find a long-lasting solution to tooth loss?
That’s where Dental implants come in!
Dental implants have been employed for use for a long time now, but they are still new in the field of dentistry.
While the concept of an implant has been in existence for thousands of years, but it has just received recognition in the Mid-20th century.
It was first implemented in the 1950s and successfully tested on a patient.
Dental implants restore your missing tooth with an attractive appearance and full functionality.
A titanium post is inserted into your jawbone and allowed to fuse for several weeks. Then the artificial tooth is attached once conditions are appropriate.
Dentures can be made as both partial or full sets depending on your needs. Dentures are designed to last longer. Partial dentures fit into your mouth via plates and, on occasion, clips to fill in the gaps made by multiple consecutive missing teeth.
Recent developments show that Partial dentures are more lightweight and comfortable to wear. Their metal-free and hypoallergenic construction make them a great solution for people’s whose gums might respond poorly to certain irritants. As a bonus, they’re also invisible when worn because they blend in to match the color of your gums.
Full Mouth Dental Implants
When all your tooth are missing, a full mouth denture is highly recommended. This process takes about two weeks to complete.
