Single Tooth Implants to replace a missing Tooth or Teeth
Trauma or illness can result in the loss of teeth. Trauma can result from an accident or over-biting. Disease is generally tooth decay or gum disease (periodontitishowever there are different kinds of diseases like cancer and various jaw neoplasms that may result in tooth loss. Studies show that more than half of the population suffer from missing or damaged teeth. The trauma can lead to the loss of one front tooth. This could have a major effect on one’s health. Fortunately, an experienced Tooth Implantologist is able to usually extract the remaining root, place a Tooth Implant, and secure an additional tooth to the implant in just one or two hours. The loss of a single tooth on the back is usually due to tooth decay or periodontal diseases. Sometimes, this is treated as front teeth are but for various reasons it can be more laborious.
The treatment for one missing tooth is often as follows:
- The tooth is extracted and the grafting of the root sockets. Then, wait 4 months.
- Placement of an Tooth Implant for the replacement of the tooth’s root. After that, you should wait between 4 and 6 months.
- Implantation of an abutment the Tooth Implant and record taking for the fabrication of an implant crown to replace the missing tooth. Wait 3 weeks then
- Permanent attachment of the abutment to the implant. The crown is then bonded to that attachment.
It’s not always as easy to replace a single tooth on the back, as it is replacing one tooth in front. But, it is vital. Teeth are incredibly mobile. We’ve all seen an Orthodontist applying tension to a tooth with a small rubber band and then moving it to wherever he’d like. Each tooth in the mouth has a specific position and purpose. When there is a single missing tooth the body’s natural reaction is to drift adjacent teeth into the void which is created. One missing tooth could cause a shift in the dental position of all the other teeth within the mouth over time. Malocclusion can lead to TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction as well as muscular spasms in the shoulders and neck, food infiltration between teeth, tooth decay periodontal diseases, and other issues. These issues can manifest over time and might not be apparent immediately after a tooth is lost. It’s unfortunate that a single tooth missing is often overlooked in view of the potential consequences however the advancement of Tooth Implants for the replacement of one tooth that is missing has encouraged more patients to seek prompt treatment.
A single tooth that is missing could lead to many missing teeth. Every tooth that is lost without replacement accelerates the loss of additional teeth. Multiple missing teeth can result in more problems than one. There are additional issues. The concerns include, but aren’t restricted to:
Vertical dimension collapse When several back teeth are lost, the mouth gets less supple and the chin shifts towards the nose. This leads to deep folds at the areas of the mouth, and thinning of the lips. This can quickly age the appearance of an individual by as much as 10-20 years.
Facial structure collapse When several back teeth are lost, facial support is lost which causes a sunken look. This time, the result is premature aging.
Bone Loss The bones of our lower and upper jaws have one function: to support our tooth roots. The bone begins to melt, much like an muscle that’s not being used when the roots are gone. This could lead to reduction in facial support, which can make it difficult to use artificial prosthetics such as dentures. It also makes the installation of Tooth Implants more challenging.
Inability properly chew food The mouth is one of many organs that are specifically designed to take in and digest food. The more thoroughly we chew our food, the better the system performs. Mama was on the right track when she advised us all to chew food slowly and more thoroughly.
Inability to eat a healthy diet As increasing numbers of teeth become lost, it becomes more difficult to maintain a balanced diet. We are losing essential foods like nuts and raw vegetables as well as the minerals and vitamins they provide.
It’s difficult to eat the foods that we love such as corn on cob, steaks, fajitas. become impossible to consume. Most people don’t realize how important it is to be able to eat as much as they like until it’s too late.
Embarrassment The loss of teeth is an embarrassment. People stop smiling or hide their smiles using their fingers. We know of very few people who lost their teeth for no reason. Every person is unique and each one can be happy or sad.
These are just some of the many issues that people face after losing one or more teeth. Tooth Implants are incredibly simple and reliable solutions. Tooth Implants for single missing teeth or for multiple missing teeth are artificial roots made of titanium, which are used to replace the roots of natural teeth. A crown is attached to an implant that is a single one for a missing tooth. It is the result of a natural tooth that functions and works exactly like the tooth that was replaced. A lot of people believe that when there are several missing teeth that one Tooth Implant is required to replace every tooth, but however, this is not the scenario. If there are three missing teeth in an order, it’s possible to replace them all with two Tooth Implants and a fixed-bridge between them. The All on 4 protocol allows for the replacement of whole arches (16 teeth) using just four implants and a fixed bridge.
The placement of the Tooth Implant is usually quick and painful for eligible. A good quantity and quality of bone is essential. As mentioned previously when teeth are extracted, the bone which once held its’ root begins to fall away. There are studies that show up to 40 percent of the bone volume in that area may disappear within the first 12 months. Implantologists are dentists of the present who are well-versed in the field of oral surgery. Implantologists place dental implants in the sockets originally occupied by the root of the teeth to stop this from occurring. The result is a healthier site for the future installation of an Tooth Implant. Dentists with more advanced knowledge of the process of placing Tooth Implants could actually implant an implant in the socket once the tooth is extracted. If this is possible, it is the ideal and most effective method to prevent bone loss. Tooth Implants are not well appreciated by many dentists. Patients tend to take a sloppy approach to tooth loss. There are times when there is a requirement to implant however there isn’t enough bone is available to support it. Modern implant designs help reduce this as do implant placement protocols such as those of the All on 4 technique but they cannot eliminate the occasional necessity for more bone.
