DENTURES AND DENTAL IMPANTS-Dr.Kirpa Johar - HariDaan Laser Wellness
A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbzone. When dental work such as a crown, fixed bridge, or a full set of dentures is added, one or more missing teeth can be replaced. A dental implant is fabricated from a very strong material (titanium) that is compatible with your body and is placed in a simple office procedure which generally is no more inconvenient than a tooth extraction. After an initial healing period during which the implant
is buried in bone and left undisturbed under gum tissue, it is uncovered
and connected to a small metal post that secures and supports the artificial teeth.
Dentures are also called false teeth. Dentures are removable prosthesis which may replace whole set of teeth in one or both jaws, or in case of partial dentures few false teeth are fixed among other natural teeth.
Complete dentures are made of acrylic base with artificial teeth positioned so they restore the smile, the jaw position and restore the bite.A set of dentures require few visits to the dentist starting with taking a mold of the mouth, which is used to make plaster casts that is used by a technician to designs the dentures. The dentist then ensures that denture fit perfectly to the shape of the jaws. However, once fitted
further adjustments would be required to attain the exact natural shape & look.
