There are so many factors that can affect a person’s dental condition. Certain illnesses and medication result to weakening teeth that lead to teeth loss, an unexpected accident can also result to broken teeth, and even poor dental health practices can lead to tooth loss.
The effects of losing teeth can be devastating; you end up having very low self confidence, you are unable to face people, unable to smile with poise, and worst your oral function is impaired. Many people endure all these every day without the knowledge that there is a way to get their teeth and ultimately their life back to normal.
Dental implants are now widely available to help restore lost teeth. The procedure is safe and within budget for the average individual. A dental implant is a titanium root that a dentist attaches and screws down to your jaw bone through surgery. The implant rooted in the bone serves as an anchor for the artificial tooth to close a gap left by a lost tooth. Implants are often made out of titanium because the material is strong and yet lightweight. Generally, titanium binds well with human bone and is not rejected by the bone. After the procedure, your new set of pearly whites will look and feel just like natural as teeth. The entire process may take around a couple of months to several more depending on the patient’s recovery.
For people with more complex conditions, they may need full mouth dental implants to restore a set of teeth and address other dental needs. Here are some cases that may need full mouth dental implants:
- Excessive dental wear
- Collapsing bite
- Uneven bite resulting to constant headaches
- Multiple gaps due to missing teeth
Full mouth dental implants may be more complicated than regular implants that only restore a single tooth. With Full mouth dental implants the procedure involves a more comprehensive treatment and surgery. The rehabilitation therapy takes into consideration the condition of the entire mouth and even the bones. Full mouth dental implants may help address concerns on a patient’s missing multiple teeth, his bite, jaw bone, the muscles and nerves and how they all work in sync for a perfect oral function. After a full mouth dental implants procedure, the dentist makes sure that the implants work well to provide maximum comfort and functionality for the patient to perform normal daily functions.
