Dental Implants are Bringing Back Smiles

One of the most wonderful assets that anyone can have is their smile. Just one glimpse of it can change a person’s look and this is it can be a big problem if you have underlying issues on your oral health. Unfortunately, many people are still unaware of the importance of taking care of one’s teeth and gums until the worst scenario happens: tooth loss.

According the Journal of Periodontology, there are various risk factors for tooth loss such as lack of dental care, medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and arthritis, even smoking. However, a large part is played by how much one takes care of his oral healthcare.

There are so many functions that cannot be done completely with even just one missing tooth such as eating and speaking. Good thing dental implants are made available to aid those who want to be confident and comfortable again. The success rate of this procedure is up to 98 percent and anyone can undergo dental implants.

The procedure involves placing a tooth root implant made of titanium into the bone socket of the missing tooth. The bone has to be healed for up to six to 12 weeks to help the tissues grow around the tooth to secure the implant in the jaw. To achieve a more natural appearance, the replacement tooth, called the crown is customized to look like your other teeth through a model of your bite.

After this procedure, anyone can have their own smile once again, this time even better and more comfortable. Dental implants give so much more than new tooth but a new boost in the confidence department.
