To whom dental implantation is appropriate?

Any person with teeth impairment may be subjected to dental implanting upon consideration of his/her health. Before dental implanting is implemented, the victim must be of sound health. Besides, health history of the patient must be plainly examined before the family dentist proceeds with teeth replacement. Health conditions such as diabetes, cancer, periodontitis, and smoking habits of the patient affect the procedures of teeth replacement negatively; and therefore, if the patient is experiencing or is undergoing any of these conditions, they should not be subjected to dental surgery. The dentists carry out extensive examination to know how replacement will occur. They will need to have enough knowledge on how to bite and chew, and how the teeth will fit upon closing the mouth after dental replacement has been successfully performed. All these concerns are taken care of so that the replaced teeth can bear similar features to normal teeth.

Losing the bone is losing the teeth

For a bone to uphold its form, strength, density and shape, it demands incentives. The incentive is teeth that get supported from the alveolar. Alveolar, the sac-like bone is stimulated by the teeth to provide the support to it. The tooth without alveolar does not have incentives. Teeth loss is proportional to bone loss. When the person is losing the bone is losing teeth as well. Within one year, the Bone deteriorates persistently in width by 25%. When the person losses teeth, he/she losses the needed support and therefore will continue to loss more because there is no support per-se. The configuration of teeth is also affected due to lack of sustenance and the jaw gets affected eventually.

Maintenance of bone tissue that supports the teeth

The alveolar that provides support teeth needs to be well-kept-up.  This Bone is embedded into the openings after the tooth loss so as to maintain and sustain the bone tissue. This will offer the replaced tooth with the required support to prevent bone deterioration. If the bone tissue is left to melt away, it means there will be no any element or factor that will uphold the dental implants. The implanted teeth fuse into the bone tissue to provide a given stimulation required to up keep the functions of the teeth. Therefore, the maintenance of bone tissue remains very vital for effective teeth replacement.

Execution of dental implantation

Teeth replacement is done and executed by dental surgeons. It is a line-up that consists of general dentist, periodontics specialist and an oral surgeon. These individuals have prowess knowledge on dental implantation. Teeth replacement demands surgical procedures and it is done on those areas which are needed. The placed teeth should be attached to the bone for indispensable support.
