Certain oral conditions may only be salvaged by having an overhaul of the teeth. If is often a very expensive treatment to undertake but at the end of the day, it will be well worth it. Usually, under this procedure, the damaged teeth are removed and replaced with artificial teeth known as dental implants; where dental implants cannot be afforded by the patient, a dentist may recommend traditional denture.
However, there are many things to factor in before deciding to have a full mouth restoration procedure; it is advisable for a patient to consult a dentist before deciding on what mouth restoration procedure would best treat an oral health condition.
As far as options are concerned under the mouth restoration procedure, you can have your whole set of teeth replaced with dental implants or opt for denture replacements; the former is a lot more expensive as such many patients tend to stick with the latter. Dentures on the average are still a quite capable replacement for your natural teeth; many are molded from a cast of the original tooth; they are then put on frames that take the shape of your teeth arc. This way you can easily take them in and out of your mouth though sometimes some tooth can get loose and begin to roam inside your mouth then, you can easily fix them back on the frame.
However, dentures have their downsides, one of them is that they are not as sturdy as your natural teeth so there is certain food you must avoid; when you eat foods that require strong bites to masticate, they could come off. Furthermore, there is a tendency that trapped-in food particles irritate and open up a sore on the gum.
If you are going for the other expensive option, you would have to splash the cash but you’ll get great value for it as dental implants overcome many of the disadvantages and limitations of dentures; apart from having a much more natural look, they are much sturdier after they have become firmly rooted to the jaw bone.
Moreover, with dental implants, you have no fears and you can enjoy yourself eating whatever you want. The best way to describe it is that you have this feeling that you have reclaimed the confidence you had with your natural teeth. Since these new set of artificial tooth integrates well into your mouth structure and help you live a normal life; it totally eliminates the memories and ill feelings of suffering a tooth loss. Dental implants, however, have the disadvantage of being a complex and time-consuming, getting the titanium rods to fuse with the jaw bone requires expertise, meticulous care, and patience. Some implants cannot even be mounted on the titanium rods until the fusion has taken place.
Though the downsides Dental implants call for concern and careful consideration, they still do not outweigh the happy-ever afterlife that could be yours if you are able to scale the hurdles of the cost and the lengthy treatment procedure.
