DENTAL IMPLANTS IN DUBAI
Many patients in Dubai with dental issues such as tooth loss or missing teeth are looking for a quick solution to their dental woes and will opt for the ultimate in cosmetic procedures, dental implants. We, at AMDC are focused on making surprising and beautiful improvements to smiles that need it the most.
Dental implants are commonly considered restorations that are used to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. While most patients may consider partial dentures or dental bridges to replace missing teeth, they may find that there are a number of benefits to choosing dental implants as opposed to other types of dental restorations.
The many benefits include,
Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
Improved oral health. Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of the natural tooth is left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
Bone growth stimulation. When an individual loses a natural tooth, the bone underneath the gums may begin to deteriorate and crumble. By placing a dental implant, the process of osseointegration occurs. This is the process where the bone growth is stimulated in the area where there is a missing tooth, this helps to make the bone stronger and keep the dental implant in its proper place over a period of time.
High success rate. Dental implants in Dubai are extremely reliable and has a very high success rate. Our dentists find that dental implants work perfectly to enhance a patient’s smile and are the “platinum standard” in cosmetic restorations.
Long Lasting. There is no doubt that dental implants are one of the most successful restoration options in the dental world and they are long lasting as well. Even if the cost is too high, the long term benefits of having healthy teeth for the rest of your life cannot be compared or valued with any other type of dental restoration.
Conventional. Other types of dental restorations may require healthy and natural teeth to be altered, so that cosmetic procedures such as a dental bridge can be placed. There are instances, that dental bridges can affect and alter the surrounding teeth as healthy tooth enamel is removed to bond them in place. Our dentists will make sure to minimize any damage to healthy teeth when placing tooth implants, while proceeding with the restoration so that the patient can smile with confidence. Conventional ways to address missing teeth include the use of dentures, but today, dental implants are the most preferred option, especially for full mouth rehabilitation as it is a standalone restoration that have no requirement for any sort of support for surrounding teeth to be placed.
Time saver. Dental implants don’t require multiple visits, only a few visits are needed to make sure you walks away with a million dollar smile. This is the perfect options for those who are busy and cannot take time off work for a long period of time to rest and recover from a surgery.
Low maintenance. Dental implants are often low maintenance, and should be looked after just like natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing and dental visits.
DENTAL CROWNS DUBAI
There are usually three reasons for the placement of crowns (caps) and bridges:
– The first reason is that a tooth has been so badly damaged by decay or so heavily restored by fillings that it can only be saved with cast restoration.
– The second reason is that a tooth has been treated endodontically (root canal treatment).
These teeth are almost always restored with a cast restoration because they have lost a great deal of tooth structure from fracture, decay, or the drilling process.
These teeth are prone to fracture under normal and light chewing forces.
– The third reason a crown might need to be placed is that the tooth needs to be used as an
abutment (anchor) for a bridge to replace missing teeth.
The procedure involves:
– Preparing (drilling) the tooth in an appropriate fashion for the type of crown chosen.
– Making impressions of the prepared tooth, opposing teeth, and the occlusal (bite) relationships.
– Selecting a shade for tooth-colored crowns.
– Fabricating a provisional restoration that will remain in place while the crown is being constructed.
– Cementing or bonding the completed crown into position. If the work to be done is extensive, there may also be several appointments needed for preliminary seating (try-in) of the crowns or castings.
Crowns are made from many different types of materials. We have prepared written information describing the advantages and disadvantages of each. If you have not seen this information, please ask for it. If you have any known sensitivity to metals, please let us know prior to treatment. If you would prefer that no metals be used in the construction of the crowns, please let us know. We will discuss your options prior to preparation of the tooth (or teeth).
For crowns to be successful, it is important that regular dental cleanings and plaque removal be carried out. You should immediately begin following the oral self-care instructions that you have been given. It will make the procedure more comfortable and efficient, and the resulting restorations will look perfect. Final impressions cannot be taken until the gum tissue is healthy. Your cooperation is appreciated and necessary.
Maintaining Your Fixed Prosthetics
Just like with your natural teeth and especially with teeth that have been restored with any dental material, you should avoid chewing on excessively hard or sticky foods after the crowns have been cemented. It is very important not to bite down on hard foods with just one tooth. The porcelain material can fracture from the metal substructure under extreme forces. Anything you chew that could break a natural tooth could break a crown!
Be sure to brush and floss daily as instructed. We also advise using a fluoride mouthrinse as part of your daily routine. Please be sure to return for your regular examinations and prophylaxis (cleaning) appointments at the time intervals we suggest.
After observing these types of procedures for many years, we note that gingiva (gums) can recede from the crown margins and the surrounding tooth structure may become visible. This sort of gum recession usually takes place over a period of several years and may require restoration replacements or a periodontal plastic surgery procedure to correct it.
We expect that you will receive many years of service from the cast restoration.
