Dental Implants for Life

We all have wanted to have that million-dollar smile that could make people look twice, even we don’t have the face that can give models a run for their money. However, there are issues that hinder us from achieving that seemingly pipe dream of a million-dollar smile, and one of the worst of them may be a lost tooth, together with the lost self-esteem. Not everyone can confidently smile with a hole on their smile. Thankfully, there is a great way to patch that rather imperfect smile and have that almost unachievable dream of a picture-perfect smile.

Dental implants have done a great deal of helping patients with lacking teeth in regaining what they had lost. Although there are the commonly used dentures and bridges, they usually come with them warnings of be careful of eating this which is really upsetting in the middle of a buffet. Dental implants eliminate these dietary restrictions and have more to offer.

Dental implants are virtually pieces of metal (don’t worry, they’re virtually safe for use in the mouth) surgically attached to the bone in your jaw, acting as the firm foundation for your replacement teeth. Although there is a slim chance that dental implants are not good for you, you should still check with your dentist if they are safe and appropriate for your condition.

Usually, they check about the condition of the underlying bone on your gums, if it is dense and strong enough to support the implants. Periodontists, experts in the things around your teeth, coordinate with your dentist about this, and if all things are okay, then they proceed with picking what type of implant you can have. There are at least two types of implants you can have.

Endosteal dental implants are the most common implants, where the implants are inserted into the bone itself, directly replicating the form and function of a natural tooth’s root. The implant can take the shape of a screw, cylinder, or plate, and the part that protrudes from the surface serves as the post where replacement teeth are attached.

Subperiosteal dental implants are slightly different from endosteal ones, in that subperiosteal implants are wrapped across the surface of the bone instead of piercing through it. This type is usually recommended for people whose bones cannot fully support the endosteal implants. These implants cover a large area of the bone, so it is also common to use these implants when there are a lot of teeth in the same area to be replaced.

These implants, no matter what the type, require months to be attached; to ensure that the implants will be firmly connected to the bone, the patient will be asked to wait for months for the bone around the implant, and for the meantime, a temporary denture may be used. After the wait, the replacement teeth will be inserted on the protruding posts, completing the process.

Dental implants, although they are virtually artificial teeth, need just as much oral care as natural teeth. Having these implants doesn’t ensure you a perfect oral health status, but instead it’s just a way of starting afresh, giving you a chance to give the care you didn’t give your teeth before.


Strong, Healthy and Beautiful Teeth: The Natural Way

Posted by Clara S. Williams on


Who doesn’t want a healthy and bright smile? However, the first requisite to enjoy such thing is to have strong and healthy teeth, so you can smile without feeling ashamed. That’s the point we will discuss on this article: how you can improve your teeth health.

Basic: Your Hygiene.

Without proper oral hygiene it’s impossible to keep your teeth strong and healthy. It’s mandatory for you to do the following things:

  1. Drink alcohol in moderate amounts
  2. Don’t smoke
  3. Brush your teeth after every meal
  4. Use dental floss after every meal

That’s it. If you follow these 4 basic fundaments you will keep your teeth in perfect conditions. But you need to go further than that, because even if you follow these basic yet fundamental steps, you can still develop dental caries, bad breath and other issues if you have a bad and toxic diet.



Now it’s time to check what kind of diet you should follow if you want to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful. But allow me to tell you that the benefits will go beyond your teeth, they will change your life completely.

Vegetables – Give Them a Principal Role:

In your movie called life, it’s important to give vegetables a principal role. You shouldn’t go vegan or vegetarian, that doesn’t make any sense. You just need to have a good serving of vegetables with every meal.

3You should ALWAYS eat leafy greens. These veggies will have wonderful effects on your health and your teeth. Because they will provide your teeth a unique shine and look that almost none has nowadays. It’s sad to say it but our bad diet has destroyed us in a great part. And if you want to stand out, then you need to change it. And instead of eating pizza and hamburgers the whole day, you should rather eat natural food (good meat, good fats and healthy carbs) and plenty of vegetables.

Another thing a lot of people often forget is that cheese is actually pretty food for your teeth. You shouldn’t abuse it, but when used in moderation it can provide you with healthy teeth which will resist caries. But of course, the main protector of your teeth will be vegetables. Cheese is just accessory in our opinion.

And finally, if you were to pick a fruit to eat every day, then opt for apples. They are actually excellent for your teeth. They are crunchy fruits and are full of healthy fiber. These things will allow your teeth to stay clean and strong, so you can keep caries and other diseases away of your life. See? It’s simple to have healthy teeth.
