Single Tooth Implants to replace the missing tooth (or Teeth)
Teeth can be lost due to injuries or diseases. Trauma may come in the form of an accident or over bite forces. The most common cause of tooth decay is or gum disease (periodontitisHowever, there are also other categories such as cancer and various neoplasm’s of the jaw which can cause tooth loss. More than half of the population suffers from at least one missing tooth, according to studies. Trauma commonly causes the loss of a single front tooth. The effect that this can have on one’s well being is obvious. A skilled Tooth Implantologist will usually be capable of removing the root and place an Tooth Implant. Then, the new tooth is attached to the implant in an hour or so. The loss of a single tooth on the back is usually due to periodontal decay or tooth decay. It is sometimes treated in the same way as front teeth, but it can often take longer.
The treatment for one missing tooth is often in the following manner:
- The tooth is extracted and the grafting of the sockets for root. Wait for 4 months.
- Implantation of a Tooth Implant to replace the root of the single missing tooth. After that, you should wait between 4 and 6 months.
- The placement of an abutment onto the Tooth Implant and record taking to make an implant crown to replace the missing tooth. After 3 weeks, you can wait.
- Permanent attachment of the abutment the implant and cementation of the crown to the abutment.
It’s not always simple to replace one tooth on the back as it is to replace one tooth on the front. But, it is crucial. Teeth are incredibly mobile. They can be moved around by an Orthodontist can put tension on a tooth using a small rubber band and then move it wherever he likes. Every tooth in the mouth has a position and a function. The body’s normal response to a missing tooth is to move the adjacent teeth to fill the gap. A single tooth missing can result in a change in the dental position of all the other teeth in the mouth over the course of time. Malocclusion can lead to TMJ [tempromandibular joint] dysfunction, muscles spasms and headaches in the shoulders and neck, food infiltration between the teeth, tooth decay periodontal disease, and various other issues. Because these issues do not always develop and because they can occur long after the tooth has been lost, most people don’t link the loss of their tooth to the issues they caused. It’s unfortunate that a single tooth missing is usually overlooked in the view of the potential consequences however the advancement of Tooth Implants for the replacement of one tooth that is missing has prompted more people to seek prompt treatment.
A single tooth that is missing could result in several missing teeth. Every time a tooth gets removed and not replaced, it accelerates the process of losing more teeth. When multiple teeth become lost all the issues that arise from a single lost tooth get magnified. There are additional issues. These include, but would not be restricted to:
Vertical dimension collapse When several back teeth are lost, the mouth becomes weaker and the chin moves closer to the nose. This causes deep folds around the corners of the mouth as well as loss of lips. It can accelerate the ageing process of an individual’s appearance by as much as 10-20 years.
Facial structure collapse – When the back teeth of multiple people are lost facial support is reduced that causes a sunken face. The result is premature ageing.
Bone loss The bones that line our upper and lower jaws serve one purpose: to help support the tooth roots. The bone starts to melt, much like muscles that aren’t employed in the event that the roots are removed. This can result in further reduction in facial support, making it more difficult to wear artificial prosthetics such as dentures. This can make the installation of Tooth Implants more challenging.
Inability or inability to properly chew food The mouth is one of a number of organs that are specifically designed to take in and digest food. The entire system will function better if we chew food properly. Mom was not wrong when she admonished everyone to chew food more slowly and thoroughly.
Unable to consume healthy foods As teeth lose their strength, it becomes more difficult to eat an adequate diet. Important staples such as raw fruits and nuts are impossible to eat , and we miss out on the minerals and vitamins they contain.
The inability to eat the food we like -Corn on the Cob, ribs, steaks, Fajitas, etc. are now impossible to consume. A lot of people don’t realize how much being able to eat what they want means to them until it’s too late.
embarrassment There is a social stigma that is associated with missing teeth. A lot of people stop smiling or cover their smiles with fingers. It’s unfortunate as we know of very few people who lost their teeth because they wanted to. Every individual has their own story to tell and all of them or sad.
These are just a few of the problems that people face because of single and multiple missing teeth. Tooth Implants are extremely simple and secure solutions. Tooth Implants for single missing teeth or several missing teeth are made of artificial roots made of titanium that replace the natural roots of teeth. For a single missing tooth the implant is placed on top of it and a crown attached to it. The result is a natural looking tooth that functions just like the natural tooth substituted. It is a common belief that the use of a Tooth Implant will be required to replace every tooth in the row with missing teeth. If there are three missing teeth in an order, it’s possible to replace all of them with two Tooth Implants and a fixed-bridge between them. The All on 4 protocol allows for the replacement of complete arches (16 teeth) with only four implants, and a fixed-bridge.
The procedure of placing an Tooth Implant is usually quick and almost painless for those who are eligible. One requirement is an adequate amount and quality of bone. As we mentioned earlier, when the tooth is removed, the bone which once held its root, begins to melt away. Research has shown that up to 40 percent of the bone can be lost within the first 12 months. Implantologists are dentists of the present who have a good understanding of oral surgery. Implantologists insert materials into the sockets originally occupied by the root of teeth to prevent this from occurring. This is a healthier area for future Tooth Implant placement. Dental professionals with a greater understanding of the process of placing Tooth Implants might be able to implant an implant in the socket once the tooth is extracted. If this can be accomplished, it is the ideal and simplest solution for preventing bone loss. Tooth Implants are not well recognized by a lot of dentists. Patients tend to take a sloppy approach to tooth loss. Sometimes there is a need to implant, but not enough bone to be able to support it. Modern implant designs minimize this , as do implant-placement procedures like the All on 4 technique but they can’t eliminate the requirement for additional bone.
