    Vosgerichian DMD Explains Dental Implants

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Millions of Americans suffer from tooth loss every year, but thanks to revolutionary advancements in dental technology, there are now more reliable methods than dentures for restoring a person’s smile. Dental implants are now one of the best methods of replacing lost teeth, as they provide a strong, anchoring foundation while replicating the look and feel of natural teeth. The following article offers more information on dental implants:

    What Are Dental Implants?

    • Usually made of titanium, dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed within the jaw bone. A titanium screw is drilled into the tooth gap and allowed to osseointegrate, or fuse with the surrounding bone. Once this has occurred, generally after around two to six months, a crown is placed on the implant to resemble your natural teeth. Dental implants enhance the appearance of your smile, improve speech and comfort when eating, and boost your overall oral health.

    When Are Dental Implants Used?

    • One of the most common reasons why people get dental implants is to replace a missing tooth. Tooth loss may occur due to periodontal disease, injury, or advanced decay. Dental implants have a 98% success rate and can last a lifetime, making them one of the best options available for tooth loss restoration.
    • In some cases, dental implants can be used to support a bridge or denture. Dental implants can eliminate the need for a removable partial denture and offer security and comfort for full dentures.

    3 Questions to Ask Your Cosmetic Dentist

    Last updated 3 years ago

    If you’re unhappy with your smile, consider seeking the advice of a cosmetic dentist. Studies show that people with an attractive smile are more confident, happier, and treated better in their everyday lives. The following guide explores questions to ask once you schedule an appointment with your new cosmetic dentist: 

    • How long have you been practicing cosmetic dentistry?

    It’s important to make sure that you’re receiving the work of a quality professional. Length of practice time can be a good sign of superior skill, but be sure to ask for examples of previous dental procedures performed. If you think it’s necessary, then find out where your dentist received schooling and whether he is associated with any professional organizations. 

    • In what ways can you improve my smile?

     

    You’ll likely have to undergo an oral examination in order for the cosmetic dentist to determine the answer to this question, but it’s the best way to assess your needs. You could start by discussing the procedures offered by the cosmetic dentist and these work to enhance smiles. 

    • How can I maintain results?

     

    By discussing various problem areas in your mouth with a dental health professional, you can find ways to improve your daily oral routine. Talk about new methods of brushing, flossing, and a proper diet to ensure that you’re taking proper care of your teeth. Remember, disease prevention is one of the best methods of maintaining a beautiful smile.
