*Implant Dentistry

2.jpgDental practitioners have tried to develop artificial teeth to be placed in the jawbones since the origin of dentistry, but in recent years activity has increased in the area of implant dentistry. This titanium tooth substitutes work like a natural tooth.




The most popular current concept of implant requires one or two clinical sessions:
  1. The gum tissue is opened, and the screw-like titanium implant is placed into the bone. This implant combines with the bone as the bone cells grow into its surface. This process, which has been called osseointegration, takes several months. During this time, the implant is usually sealed below the gum, away from mouth fluids and debris, while it heals into place.
  2. On the second appointment, a small hole is made in the gum tissue, and the implant is exposed. A healing cap is placed on the implant for a short time, and a head is placed onto the implant body. The gum tissue heals for a short time, and the dentist places some artificial teeth onto the implant(s). these artificial teeth can be made to appear and function as well as or better than natural teeth.

 

On occasion, only one appointment is required. The implant is placed and allowed to protrude into the mouth. It may be restored on that appointment or at a later time.

Dental implants are one of the best treatment alternatives for people with many missing teeth, and often the only way to chew well. Implants provide an alternative therapy for persons with only a few missing teeth. Implants have now had many years of clinical research and observation. When placed and maintained properly, they allow tooth and gum replacements that appear natural and function almost as effectively as natural teeth.

Conditions, signs or symptoms related to implant:

  1. All of your natural teeth have been removed.
  2. Some of your natural teeth have been removed.
  3. One of your natural teeth has been removed.

* Oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral pathology, oral medicine

Many diseases in various parts of the body have oral implications. In fact, the mouth is a mirror of overall body health. Dentists can tell about general body health by looking in the mouth, observing the condition of the soft and hard tissues, and repeating the examination over a period of weeks or months for comparison. The condition of the teeth and the bone and gums that support them are dependent on numerous conditions, including hereditary factors, diet, oral hygiene, and overall health. You should consult your dentist about any conditions or diseases of the oral cavity or related structures. These practitioners are the most experienced of all health practitioners with regard to that part of the body.

 

Teeth serve a vital function in the human body, and extraction of teeth should be avoided just as vigorously as amputation of finger, toe, or any other part of the body. Satisfactory replacement of teeth with artificial ones is difficult and expensive. Only if the entire procedure is done at a high level of quality and skill will the artificial result resemble and function as well as natural teeth.

Conditions, signs or symptoms related to oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral pathology, or oral medicine:

  1. Loose teeth.
  2. Gums bled easily.
  3. Slightly broken tooth.
  4. Moderately broken tooth.
  5. Severely broken tooth.
  6. Tooth knocked out of mouth.
  7. Tooth appears gray or pink.
  8. Swelling in the jaws or neck.
  9. Pain in tooth.
  10. Sensitivity to pressure on a specific tooth.
  11. Pus oozing from gums.
  12. Pimple protruding from gums.
  13. Decayed teeth.
  14. Crooked teeth.
  15. Chronic tooth pain.
  16. Unerupted teeth.
  17. Broken jaw.
  18. Lower jaw too far forward or too far backward.
  19. Upper or lower jawbone inadequate for dentures.
  20. Jaw joints hurt or jaw muscles ache.
  21. Hard growths in mouth.
  22. Cold sores.
  23. Canker sores.
  24. Dry mouth.
  25. White spots on soft tissue in mouth.
  26. Hairy tongue.
  27. Spots on tongue.


* Periodontics (Gum and bone surrounding teeth)

Just as a sound foundation is important to a house, the teeth must have a sound foundation of bone and gum tissue. If this foundation is not present, the teeth will be lost eventually. Good oral hygiene is not difficult to accomplish, and combined with routine oral examinations (every 6 months or more frequently), dental prophylaxis, and scaling as needed, most people don't develop periodontal disease.

 Periodontics is an area of dentistry that has been neglected significantly by both dentists and patients. This area of dentistry involves the supporting structures of the teeth, primarily the bone of the jaws and the gum tissue. During adulthood, more teeth are lost to periodontal disease than to dental caries. Why has periodontal therapy been neglected? The most important reason is that disease of the gums and bone progresses slowly and usually is not painful. Most patients do not seek treatment for periodontal disease unless they are motivated by their dentist.

 

Conditions, signs or symptoms related to periodontics:

1.      Bleeding from the gums.

2.      Red gums.

3.      Creamy, yellow substance comes from space between tooth and gums; foul odor is present

4.      Gums have receded from original adult level and are unsightly or sensitive.

5.      Food debris collects between teeth.

6.      Mouth odor (Halitosis).

7.      Gums cover teeth.

8.      Painful gums.
