Dental implants are devices that your dentist surgically implants in your jaw. They serve as support for your new, artificial teeth such as dentures, bridges or crowns.
There’s no question about how desirable of an alternative they are to other methods of teeth replacement. For one, the results of dental implants last longer than any other intervention out there. However, whether you need or don't need them depends on whether you are a candidate for implants. If you have adequate bone mass and no underlying oral disease, you can easily qualify for the procedure.
One of the biggest reasons people opt for implants is that they capture the natural feeling of your original teeth. For this reason, people find it easy to adapt to them. Furthermore, they can also mimic the functions of real teeth.
You're able to bite well, and your teeth can also handle tougher food. You can also perform the same oral hygiene practices as you did with your original teeth.
Most importantly, they can last a lifetime. Unlike bridges that only last for up to a decade, implants are much more durable. Additionally, you can maintain your implants easily.
If you have spaces in the jawbone, the bone in the area will begin deteriorating due to no stimulation. With the passage of time, bone volume also decreases significantly. The best way to avoid this is to get dental implants so you can restore stimulation to your jawbone as soon as possible.
All in all, there’s never a reason one should give up on a full set of teeth. From boosting your confidence to restoring your natural teeth functioning, dental implants can do wonders to bring your lost smile back.
A dental crown is also very effective in restoring the strength, shape, and size of your teeth. Dental crowns are helpful with restoring cracked, decayed, or damaged teeth.
Created to mimic the shape of your teeth, dental crowns are hollow caps made from ceramic or gold. Patients can also opt for porcelain crowns for a more natural appearance.
Your dentist may also recommend dental crowns for several other situations. For example, crowns help cover a dental implant as a tooth replacement and also hold a dental bridge in place. Furthermore, crowns can restore a tooth’s biting surface and also cover teeth that are unsightly or discolored.
Your dentist typically recommends a root canal when there’s evidence that a bacterial infection has damaged your tooth pulp. The bacteria can further spread and multiply, causing further inflammation to your pulp.
Hence, the treatment is designed to remove bacteria from the targeted root canal and save your natural tooth. The procedure involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp followed by cleaning and disinfecting the insides of your tooth.
Crowning After Root Canal
Since a root canal involves removing the pulp and nerve of a tooth, the amount of blood supply to the tooth is reduced. As a result, your tissue may not get its nutrients and moisture and eventually become brittle or dries out. This is why crowning is often recommended after undergoing a typical root canal treatment. A crowned root encases the cusps properly and distributes the biting action better.
In case you need a replacement for one or more than one tooth, your dentist may recommend getting dental bridges. The procedure primarily involves placing a tooth made of ceramic to fill the space where your original tooth was. There are a number of reasons people opt for this intervention. For one, they bridge the gap between your teeth and restore your ability to bite.
Furthermore, they prevent other teeth from moving into the open space and also preserve your speech. All you need to do to maintain them is to have optimal oral hygiene practices and get routine dental check-ups.
In some cases, bridges are also better than implants. For example, in cases where patients cannot undergo implants due to diabetes or another underlying condition, bridges can do the work. Additionally, if the tooth adjacent to the space that requires filling is broken down itself, then a bridge is an ideal choice of treatment.
Dental fillings are the most common restorative practice in the world of dentistry. As the name suggests, the procedure involves using fillings to replace the damaged or decayed parts of your teeth. Since the fillings are made of gold, silver, porcelain, or amalgam, they're long-lasting and durable.
Fillings also help even out your tooth surfaces and improve your chewing and biting functions. Once the procedure has been performed, you will notice significant improvement and reduction in the discomfort that existed prior to the procedure.
Furthermore, dental fillings aren't just a solution for cavities. They're also used to repair cracks in your teeth due to habits such as tooth grinding, nail-biting, and using your teeth to open things.
