Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Since few years, Dental Implants in India are on the rise. An implant is one of the ways to replace a missing tooth. It’s a surgical fixture that is placed into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone. The implanted tooth acts like a natural tooth when chewing, brushing or smiling.  The implant replaces the actual root of the missing tooth and heals in the bone for several months and then place an abutment, to which a crown will be cemented.  Most dental implants are made of titanium, which allows them to integrate with bone without being recognized as a foreign object in our body.

A major advantage is, no need to alter any other teeth when placing an implant. When smiling or talking there is no way to tell the difference between an implant and a natural tooth.

For dental implants, deciding on which option to choose depends on many factors:

  • location of missing tooth or teeth,
  • quantity and quality of the jawbone where the dental implant is to be placed,
  • health of the patient,
  • cost, and
  • patient preference.

Our dental surgeon/Implantologist at Aesthetic Smiles India can examine the area to be considered for the dental implant and makes a clinical assessment of whether the patient is a good candidate for a dental implant.

Types of Dental Implants

  • Endosteal: Typically made of titanium, endosteal implants are the most commonly used dental implant. They’re usually shaped like small screws and are placed in the jawbone. They protrude through the gum to hold the replacement tooth.
  • Subperiosteal: you need dental implants but you don’t have enough healthy jawbone to support them, our dentist might recommend subperiosteal implants. These implants are placed on or above the jawbone and under the gum to protrude through the gum, holding the replacement tooth.

Please consult with our one of the best dentists in Mumbai for the type of dental implant you may require.

The easiest stains to remove are also the most common. These are the result of external factors, such as drinking coffee or tea, and smoking. Also, teeth tend to get slightly more yellow as we age because of changes that occur within the dentin (the layer under the enamel) that can be seen through the enamel. This discoloration of teeth can be fixed by various teeth whitening processes available with the dentists today.

Tooth whitening (or bleaching of teeth) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the colour of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Teeth Whitening Techniques:

  • Over-the-Counter Whiteners: You can get these whiteners over the counter as prescribed by dentist. The method usually involves filling a mouth-guard tray with solution containing a peroxide bleaching agent. The tray is worn during the night and depending on the extent of discoloration, one may require for a longer duration.
  • Teeth Whitening Toothpaste: Tooth whitening toothpastes help remove discoloration or stains. The additional chemical agents will remove surface stains, but will not bleach your teeth.
  • Laser Teeth Whitening : Now-a-days lasers are used for more effective and safe whitening of teeth.

Teeth whitening cost in Mumbai can range anywhere from $400 and can go up to $1000. Laser tooth whiteningis definitely expensive but takes relatively lesser time with best results. It makes the shade of your teeth 5-6 shades lighter. Call and get a quote from one of the top dental clinic in Mumbai for the best teeth whitening treatment that you deserve.

Side Effects of Teeth Whitening

Mild tooth sensitivity is a somewhat common side-effect of whitening. This can be reduced with the use of prescription strength fluoride gels, though not everyone needs this. For most people, sensitivity usually lasts only a few days. With Laser Teeth Whitening, the sensitivity is minimal.

Whitening is very effective for many people. However, your teeth and gums should be healthy before whitening.The teeth whitening process is not permanent. Teeth can be re-stained, especially by cigarettes, beverages such as coffee or tea, or some foods. You may need to schedule a follow-up whitening session; the effectiveness of the whitening lasts for as few as six months or as long as several years.
