Need of Dental Implants
Explore The Benefits
There’s no need to hide your smile the rest of your life. Almost anyone may have a smile makeover thanks to modern dental technology. Dental implants are a safe and secure grin alternative for anyone who has lost teeth due to an accident, periodontal disease, or other factors. Dr. Siman can help you with everything from a bridge to a full mouth reconstruction. So don’t let missing teeth affect the way you chew, smile, or go about your daily activities.
Dental implants are so strong and secure they can last for decades. Brush and floss daily and visit us for regular checkups twice a year.
No discomfort, no worrying about the security of the tooth restoration. You don’t have to take the implants out to clean them. Implants function as your own teeth.
Improved Quality Of Life
Whether it’s one missing tooth or an entire arch of teeth, having an incomplete smile can make you feel bad about yourself and your appearance. Restoring those teeth and completing your smile will improve the function and appearance of your teeth and, thereby, your quality of life.
Why should I get dental implants?
Missing teeth should always be replaced. When you don’t have all of your teeth, your mouth doesn’t operate as effectively, and missing teeth can lead to a variety of oral health issues, including shifting teeth, an insecure bite, and excessive wear and strain on your remaining teeth.
Other tooth-replacement solutions, such as standard dentures and bridges, have substantial disadvantages. Dental implants are more comfortable and secure in your mouth because they match the structure of your natural teeth.
Dental implants can also help to prevent bone loss, which is typical when teeth are missing. Traditional dentures and bridges lay on top of your gumline, denying healthy stimulation to the bone structure in your jaw. Dental implants keep your bone tissue healthy and robust because they link directly to your jawbone.
Are dental implants right for me?
Dental implants are a great option for anyone who wants to replace their missing teeth in a comfortable and healthy way. You’ll need healthy bone tissue in your jaw and healthy gums for your dental implants to work effectively. If either is inadequate, Dr. Kiai can offer therapies such as a bone graft or periodontal therapy to help you become a better candidate for dental implants.
What happens when I get dental implants?
Westwood Dental Esthetics collaborates with a prominent oral surgeon who performs your implant procedure in the office. To finish the procedure, you’ll need to make a few trips over the course of a few months.
Dr. Kiai completes your restoration with a crown, bridge, or dentures once your implants are firmly lodged in your jawbone. It’s just like having natural teeth when you have implants. Brushing, flossing, and frequent checkups and cleanings are all that is required to ensure that your dental implants last a lifetime.
How long does a patient have discomfort after dental implants?
For at least ten days, a patient may have discomfort in the treated area, face, and jaw. Patients should expect some swelling, but the dentist may prescribe antibiotics and pain relievers to alleviate the discomfort. Swelling and soreness begin to subside on the third day following the operation.
Within 14 days, the patient may be pain-free and the implant may be fully healed. If the pain and swelling persist after 14 days, the patient should see a dentist right once because it could be an indication of infection.
Below are a few common ways to reduce discomfort and maximize the healing process after dental implant:
- Strictly follow post-operation instructions recommended by the dentist after the procedure. Instructions may include taking pain medications like Advil or Tylenol as directed and also taking prophylactic antibiotics if prescribed
- Regularly rinsing gently with a warm saltwater solution may kill germs and promote healing
- Avoiding hot, spicy, or crunchy foods for the first 10 days may avoid infection
- Maintaining good oral hygiene is always recommended
- Brushing gently near the implant sites may avoid any infection due to injury
- Using cold compresses as directed will help in controlling the pain
- Keep appointments with the dentist as directed.
Dental bridges and dental implants
Teeth loss is a big issue that affects almost everyone at some point in their lives. Dental traumas, gum disease, injuries, and other conditions might cause you to lose one, several, or even all of your teeth. Dental implants are often regarded as the best tooth replacement option since they replace the root structures of missing teeth, resulting in a stable and secure basis for the crown.
Until recently, most patients had to endure the discomfort of wearing dentures to replace an entire arch of lost teeth. But that is no longer the case. The Smile On 4 treatment, which uses as few as four dental implants on each arch, is now regarded the gold standard for same-day full-mouth tooth replacement. Our physicians create a custom Smile On 4 dental implant treatment plan for you to give you a second chance at a lovely smile.
Cost vs. Benefit
Although dental implant treatment may appear intimidating, the procedure’s minor discomfort may save you from a lifetime of uncomfortable problems.
When food debris is collected and begins to rot, teeth and gums might become infected. Having fewer teeth can influence your ability to laugh, speak, and smile, as well as how and what you can consume.
A restricted diet produced by fewer teeth can also affect the jawbone, causing it to weaken or waste away due to a lack of mobility induced by decreased chewing. When there are gaps between teeth, the alignment of the teeth might shift over time, causing headaches, jaw pain, and the inability to bite properly.
Although implants may seem like a significant step, the benefits frequently outweigh the hazards of having holes in your mouth.
Dental implant placement is a common surgery that should not be uncomfortable and has the potential to significantly improve your quality of life. With proper dental hygiene, they should endure for roughly 20 years, providing you with both comfort and security.
