How Restoring Lost Teeth Has Long-Term Benefits

Posted on 11/22/2021 by Water's Edge Dental
It is natural for each person to lose teeth as they get older. The first time this happens is during childhood, when our adult teeth replace our infant teeth. As we continue to age, though, a number of factors can cause loss of adult teeth. Some common reasons might be overall oral health, injuries to the mouth or face, or cavities. However, it is important to replace those teeth to maintain a healthy mouth. The Reasons for Restoring Lost Teeth One of the first and primary reasons to have any lost teeth restored is so that you can maintain the integrity of your mouth as you age. It might seem silly, but even one lost tooth can compromise the integrity and comfort of your mouth. Without restoring the teeth, you may have discomfort when you bite down or whenever you talk. It is also possible the damage gets progressively worse the more you try to ignore it. A second reason to replace your lost tooth is because your teeth always adjust and grow, even as an adult. The teeth next to the missing tooth will sense the gap and move in to fill the empty space. If they do this, it will make it difficult to clean those teeth. If you cannot clean your teeth, it makes it more likely you will get cavities. Another reason to replace lost teeth is because it will allow you to smile and talk with confidence. Knowing that you lost a tooth, regardless of where in your mouth it is, may make you less willing to smile for pictures or to talk to much when around other people. Restoring your teeth can provide you with full comfort in your appearance. If you have any concern or worries about tooth loss, or want us to further explain the procedures that restore lost teeth, please feel free to come down to our office or give us a call. Our team of dental specialists are ready to help you!...

What are the risk factors of periodontitis?

Posted on 11/8/2021 by Water's Edge Dental
Gum disease is one of the most common illnesses, defined by the loss of soft tissue and dental bone structure due to an inflammatory host response caused by periodontium bacterial infection. Severe gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss, affects 3–30% of older individuals globally. Children take several forms, including aggressive periodontitis, chronic periodontitis, as symptoms of systemic illnesses. Stress: Stress impairs your capacity to fight illness. This immune system damage raises your chance of gum disease. Temporomandibular joint dysfunction can also be caused by stress. Both of these diseases aggravate any existing gum disease and increase the likelihood of periodontal pockets forming. Genetics: Several people are more prone to gum disease than others. However, this does not mean that gum disease is unavoidable. You may substantially minimize your risk of gum disease by practicing proper dental hygiene and seeing the dentist twice a year. Tobacco Use and Smoking: Tobacco and other smoking substances are incredibly harmful to your general health and your dental health. They, in particular, put you at risk for periodontal disease. The frequency and duration of smoking are closely connected to your risk of gingivitis and severe gum disease. Drug-induced disorders: Some medicines have a substantial impact on salivary flow. Antihypertensive, narcotic analgesics, certain tranquillizers and sedatives, antihistamines, and antimetabolites are examples. Other medications, particularly those in a liquid or chewable form that have additional sugar, change the pH and makeup of plaque, allowing it to cling to tooth surfaces more effectively. How do you prevent periodontitis? Make sure you brush your teeth. Cleaning your teeth after eating helps eliminate food particles and plaque that has been lodged beneath your gums. Don't forget to include your tongue, which is a popular place for microorganisms to reside. Your teeth are unique. They are responsible for your distinct grin; they aid in communication, and, of course, they help in the consumption of delectable meals. Because you only acquire your adult teeth once in a lifetime, it's a good idea to keep the ones you have. For more information about the risk factors of periodontitis or to schedule your next appointment, call our office today....

What Are Dental Implants and Who Can Benefit Most From Them

Posted on 10/25/2021 by Water's Edge Dental
Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. They offer many benefits that you simply can't get with dentures or bridges, and they're a great option for people at any stage of life. Whether you're looking for a quick fix, want something long-lasting, or need to find an alternative solution, dental implants could be right for you! What Are Dental Implants and Who Can Benefit Most From Them? Dental implants are composed of a titanium post surgically implanted into the jawbone and then secured by special screws. We can use them to replace one or multiple teeth, depending on your needs. Dental implants provide an attractive alternative for people who have lost their natural smiles due to missing or damaged teeth. So how exactly do dental implants work? Once you've been fitted with a dental implant, we will secure it in place within your jaw bone using surgery and/or other medical appliances such as posts and abutments (devices attached below the gum line). The procedure takes about two visits: first to prepare the site where they'll implant the device and second to install it after it has healed completely. After the implant is in place, you'll need to wait about three months for it to heal fully. After that, we will attach a crown (or cap) over the post until the new tooth is ready. Why Are They The Superior Choice? Dental implants provide a permanent solution to both missing and damaged teeth. They are strong, stable, durable, and engineered for natural function. Unlike dentures or other tooth replacements that may be uncomfortable or require special care, dental implants can last you your whole life if treated properly. Plus, they make it possible to eat the foods you love again without worrying about them getting stuck in between gaps of loose false teeth! Dental implants are a safe and effective treatment option for those missing teeth. Whether you need one tooth replaced or want to replace an entire row of lost teeth, dental implant surgery is a viable solution that can restore your smile to its full glory. If you're interested in learning more about this procedure, please feel free to contact our practice by phone or email! We look forward to hearing from you soon!...
