Replacing Multiple Teeth

If you are one of the many Americans who have
selected dental implant surgery to replace
missing or failing teeth, or removable dentures
that only seem to cause pain and embarrassment,
youve definitely made the right choice! Over the
past twenty years, researchers have begun to
understand the benefits, as well as the
superiority of dental implants Chicago over
traditional dentistry. Unlike bridges or
removable dentures, a dental implant actually
uses a biocompatible titanium-based rod that
supplants the tooths natural root, causing the
implant to actually attach to the bone, also
known as osseointegration. This process allows
the dental implant to act and function as a
normal tooth, preserves facial structure and
integrity, and unlike traditional bridges or
partial dentures, does not strain or damage the
adjacent teeth. Infection A Dental Implants
Nightmare As a patient, youve probably
discussed all of the benefits with your implant
dentist, and understand that choosing dental
implants is a permanent solution for your missing
teeth. Yet, as with natural teeth, implants are
susceptible to infection when good oral hygiene
and proper implant cleanings are ignored, the
mucous membrane surrounding the implant becomes
infected with bacteria. This bacterial infection
results in mucositis, which is similar to
gingivitis-symptoms include redness, swelling,
and bleeding of the gums. If not treated,
mucositis evolves into peri-implantitis, in which
the untreated infection begins attacking the
supporting bone, resulting in bone loss.
According to an article published in the Journal
of Clinical Periodontology, peri-implant
mucositis occurs in about 80 of subjects (50 of
sites) restored with implants, and
peri-implantitis in between 28 and 56 of
subjects (12-40 of sites). Although there are
other contributing risk factors, including
diabetes and smoking, proper oral health hygiene
is vital to keeping your dental implants in
optimal shape. Thats why its imperative that
you sit down with your implant dentist beforehand
and discuss proper oral hygiene and aftercare in
order to keep your dental implants a permanent,
lifelong investment to your health.

Caring For Your Dental Implants Practicing
proper oral health hygiene is just as important
for an implant as it is for natural teeth
bacterial biofilm (plaque) forms on the implant
and must be removed daily in order to keep it in
prime shape. Although dental implants Chicago
have been around for years, researchers are still
undecided on an exact process, for dental implant
care. Thankfully, there are a myriad of products,
including sonic toothbrushes, flossers, and
antimicrobial rinses that your implant dentist
can suggest during your pre-surgery consultation
that will contribute to the essential process of
practicing exceptional oral health hygiene on a
twice-daily basis. Just like your natural
teeth, your dental implants also require visits
to your implant dentist, in which he/she will
evaluate the implants for proper bone attachment,
as well as any infections or other issues that
could affect its success. After the evaluation,
your implants will be cleaned with specific tools
designed for dental implants Chicago, as implant
crowns can be scratched if traditional dental
tools are used. With a success rate of 95-98
percent, dental implants Chicago are the best
choice for tooth replacement. Taking quality care
of your implants by practicing proper techniques
at home, as well as visiting your implant dentist
every 4-6 months, will ensure that they will
contribute to your beautiful smile for a
lifetime. Ashley Wesley writes SEO content for
