PROBLEMS CAUSED BY MISSING TEETH AND HOW DENTAL IMPLANTS CAN HELP.....

PROBLEMS CAUSED BY MISSING TEETH AND HOW DENTAL IMPLANTS CAN HELP...
It is easy to think that losing a tooth is not going to cause any problems..
when you lost a tooth,you may wonder  what to do next.we tend to think about teeth as individual units,but it makes up a complete system.
INFECTED TEETH can affect the overall health and affects the health
    Things that happen when cavities left untreated:                                                                                                                     1)  increased sensitivity → filling can be done                                                                                                    2)   pain→bacteria reach the tooth pulp→Root canal treatment can be done.

 If left untreated,the tooth should be removed and replacement should be done.
One of our patient had came with the complaint of decayed teeth with no pain in the lower back teeth region.The crown structure of teeth has broken down leaving only the root inside the bone due to the carious process.
 
consequences of the broken tooth structure,if it stays in the mouth for a long time:
  • Teeth in the opposite jaw starts shifting into the space.
  • chewing with the infected and broken tooth,an uneven distribution of biting forces occurs lead to more tooth loss                                                                                                                                                                                                   ↓                                                                                                                     compromise the nutritional status and overall health                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Another patient came to our clinic with infected lower back tooth,tooth was removed and then immediately replaced with dental implants.
                                                                                                                           
Dental implants were placed and x-ray taken

HOW COME DENTAL IMPLANTS WORK IN MY CONDITION???

How come dental implants work in my condition???
The above question has been arised by one of our patient who came for replacement

Many of us think now regarding the type of replacement after getting the teeth removed or after immediate teeth removal.

Loosing a tooth is exciting at the age of 6 but its painful and disheartening in the adult age .

Dental implants can work and holds good in many circumstances.

The implants which we use in our clinic requires deep sound cortical bone also works well in case of  compromised condition(poor bone quality).


These implants after getting attached in bone induce new bone formation and stimulate jaw bone .

Here is one of our patient who came for replacement and Dental implants has been placed to restore  the lost teeth.

OUCH!MY WISDOM TEETH ARE KILLING ME!!

OUCH! MY WISDOM TEETH ARE KILLING ME!

 Wisdom teeth/third molar are an issue for most people at some point of time.
Usually erupts between 18 and 21 years of age.
Most people do not have enough space for the teeth to erupt fully in the mouth.
In our ancestors,the wisdom teeth were functional because the size of the dental arches were bigger. With the evolution,the size of the jaw bones have diminished,resulting in impacted(not erupted),incompletely erupted and mal aligned wisdom teeth.
Impaction means the wisdom tooth partially erupt through gums which allows habitat for bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause an infection.

  •  Impacted teeth creates pressure on the adjacent teeth and decreases the amount of bone present on the side of impacted tooth.
  • Food lodgement will be there and difficult for brushing and flossing, will leads to tooth decay, gum swelling.
  • NOT TOO COMMON,cyst formation around the wisdom teeth.this causes destruction of bone.

A patient who had lower impacted teeth came to our clinic with pain and swelling for the past 2 days.He had the pain one month before and now he again has the pain.
              
After giving the local anesthesia,the tooth and the surrounding tissues got the numbness,as the tooth was inside the bone,it was splited and removed along with the dentigerous cyst.
               X rays were taken after 1 week  of tooth removal and good healing was seen.Patient experienced the pain and discomfort for 3 days with full recovery taking a few weeks.
"IT IS NOT ALWAYS WISE TO RETAIN WISDOM TEETH,AND REMOVAL OF THESE TEETH DOES NOT AFFECT THE WISDOM"
