Frequently Asked Questions and Terms
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant refers to a surgical fixture placed on the jawbone and then left to fuse with the bone over a couple of months. It is on the dental implant that an artificial tooth is placed. A dental implant acts as the replacement of the missing tooth’s root. The dental implant helps the tooth to stand on its own and has excellent stability without affecting the nearby teeth in any way.
What is the process of a dental implant?
The process of installing dental implants is also known as Osseointegration. The dental implants are made using titanium, which makes it easy for them to integrate into the bone without the body rejecting it as a foreign body. The process of implanting the dental implants is a surgical procedure, which can be done in the office within the same visit. Even though it is a surgical procedure, the dentist will give you local anesthesia so you will not feel the pain. It is an entirely safe procedure with a success rate of up to 98%. Technological advancement has also paid a crucial part in making this procedure quick and easy.
Is the dental implants procedure painful?
No. Getting dental implants is not painful because you will be placed under local anesthesia during the process.
Can I still get dental implants even if my tooth/teeth have been missing for a long time?
Usually, yes. You can still get dental implants even after a long time. What is important is carrying out a detailed x-ray before the procedure is done. Our new clients can take advantage of the free examination and x-ray and have their dental formula thoroughly checked by our highly qualified dentists. Once the evaluation is done, our dentists offer advice on whether dental implants will be necessary or if there is another better treatment plan.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is created when a pair of crowns are placed on top of your natural teeth on either side of the gap created by missing tooth/teeth. It is the crowns that are later used as bridges that hold the artificial tooth/teeth. Just like the dental implant, a dental bridge is used in cases of missing teeth.
What is differentiates a dental bridge and a dental implant?
The significant difference between a dental bridge and a dental implant is that the former does not involve attaching an artificial tooth on the jaw while the latter consists of attaching the artificial tooth directly on the jaw.
Can I use invisalign to close gaps?
Yes. Invisalign is one of the ways to fix gaps. Invisalign is an easy way to repair teeth gaps.
Apart from the tooth gap, what other dental issues can Invisalign fix?
The following are some of the other dental problems that Invisalign can help fix.
- Crooked teeth- If you have crooked teeth, Invisalign is one option you can consider.
- Overbite- An overbite occurs when teeth in the upper jaw close too far in front of the teeth in the lower jaw. This makes it hard to bite and chew some foods.
- Underbite- This is the opposite of an overbite. It occurs when the teeth in the bottom jaw are in front of the teeth in the upper jaw. An underbite can cause speech difficulties and can also cause your teeth to wear fast. However, in extreme cases, Invisalign is usually accompanied with braces. There are some cases of underbite, which cannot be treated with Invisalign.
What is a crown?
A crown is sometimes referred to as a ‘cap.' It is an ideal way of rebuilding broken teeth; teeth weakened by a large filling or decay.
A crown is also known as a ‘cap’ because it fits right on top of the remaining section of the tooth, thereby making the tooth strong and make it look like a natural tooth.
What materials are crowns made of?
Most crowns are made using porcelain that is bonded with precious metal. The porcelain is applied on top of the precious metal. There are also crowns made from porcelain only although such crowns are not 0as strong as the bonded crowns. There are also crowns made of porcelain and composite materials. These are the most natural looking but are weaker than bonded crowns. Then there are crowns made of glass. Glass crowns look natural because they are invisible. Lastly, there are crowns entirely made of precious metal (palladium and gold). Precious metal crowns are the strongest.
What is dental extraction?
The procedure of removing a tooth from the socket (dental alveolus) is what is called dental extraction. It is also known as exodontia, exodontics, or simply tooth pulling. The teeth that cause pain are the ones that are removed.
When do I need an extraction?
You need tooth extraction when your tooth is not growing normally. You may also need a tooth extraction to increase the space in your mouth for effective tooth alignment. When your tooth/teeth are badly damaged and hence impossible to repair, you may require to undergo tooth extraction after which you can have dental implants.
How will I know I need an extraction?
You will know you need a dental extraction after undergoing a dental examination and x-ray, which will show any dental problems that you may be having. After the exam, your dentist is the one who will recommend you undergo extraction based on his evaluation of your dental problem. It is vital to undergo the procedure as soon as it is recommended because postponing it can result in pain, misalignment, and infection. By extracting the problem tooth, you also save yourself from a great deal of discomfort.
Why does the dentist take X-rays?
Many dental conditions cannot be detected by carrying out a dental examination, and this is the reason why dentists also take x-rays. Some of the diseases that an x-ray can reveal include cysts, bone infections, gum disease, decay areas, tumors, and developmental abnormalities.
It is crucial to treat dental diseases as soon as possible to avoid any serious complications. An x-ray not only saves you time and money, but it also helps you avoid significant problems.
