Anyone who has ever had a severe toothache appreciates having healthy and well-being teeth. The teeth are a large part of our general well-being and health. At the same time, many people hesitate to go to the dentist because it is too expensive or because they are afraid that it will hurt.
The truth is, it doesn't have to be excessively expensive or particularly painful. At, for example, a root canal very effective anesthesia is available. If you are afraid of going to the dentist, it is important to explain that you are worried or afraid. Dentists are used to fear of dental care patients and are often good at taking into account and adjusting the anesthesia so that it doesn't hurt so much. Also make sure to prevent problems and take good care of your teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
Have you lost teeth? Then dental implants may be a good option for you
Are you missing teeth or do you have a tooth that needs to be removed and that you would like to replace? Don't worry, your smile or bite function isn't ruined for that matter. Using dental implants or with dentures, you can get a perfectly good row of teeth again. Dental implants are usually a better option than dentures when replacing teeth. Below you can read some of the reasons:
The implants are fixed
When implants are inserted, titanium screws are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Ceramic crowns are then mounted on the titanium screws and screwed into the implants. Since the material of the dental implant is titanium, it is almost always accepted by the body and heals nicely with the jawbone in almost all cases. This system means fixed "new teeth", i.e. they can be used in the same way as natural teeth and can only be removed by the dentist. Dentures are removable "false teeth" that you have to take out, care for and clean yourself. The disadvantage of dentures is that they are not fixed and thus do not feel like natural teeth. They often fit worse, loosen and have to be adjusted regularly.
Implants look real
The implant-supported crowns are made from ceramic materials, which makes them mimic the natural tooth more. The dental technician can create a color and shape of the ceramic crowns that match your other teeth to make it look as natural as possible. Most of the time, it is not even possible to distinguish between an implant and a normal tooth, but it is only on X-rays at the dentist that one or more teeth have been replaced by dental implants. Dentures are made of plastic, which makes it more difficult to color match and make it look real.
Implants feel real
Unlike prostheses, implants feel more real. For example, they function just like normal teeth when you chew and talk, while dentures can both slip and feel unpleasant to eat with. Dental implants also do not affect speech, which prostheses can do, of course depending on which tooth or teeth are being replaced.
