Smile Designing in kolkataModern advances in orthodontic (braces) treatment

The best way to treat crooked & overlapping teeth; protruded teeth; and teeth with large spaces in between is by wearing braces for some time (also known as orthodontic treatment).

Mono crystalline ceramic braces are completely transparent & offer the highest degree of esthetics.

Contrary to popular belief, Braces treatment can be undertaken at any age and even though most patients are teenagers & young adults.

Dental Implants – Fixed teeth for LifeSome tortures are physical and some are mental, but the one that is both is dental. The world always looks brighter from behind a smile……………..

A smile creates happiness at home, fosters good will in business and is the countersign of friendship. Investing in a good bite and a pleasing smile is the need of modern healthy life.

A dental implant is a “root” device, usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth.

Once a tooth is lost, the bone around the root of the missing tooth gradually recedes causing poor tooth alignment and an aged look. Dental implants prevent this loss of bone and shifting of teeth, maintaining the facial structure and prevent the collapsed look of the face – usually seen in old age.

Alternate options of missing teeth replacement are fraught with problems. A dental bridge requires grinding of the enamel (the hardest substance in the body) which weakens otherwise healthy teeth. Till implants were invented, millions of people had to endure removable dentures with a host of problems like loose fit, pain, falling out of dentures while eating, talking or sneezing. Many denture wearers become social recluses due to embarrassment of ill-fitting dentures. But today the solution is fast and easy; it takes only a few hours to get rid of problems you have been dealing for years.

The benefits of Dental Implants:-

Appearance – Dental implants are a permanent solution that look and feel natural, like your own teeth. The mouth is restored as closely as possible to its natural state. By replacing the entire tooth, including the root, it is possible to replicate the function of natural teeth, with a strong, stable foundation that allows comfortable biting and chewing. In addition, nothing in the mouth looks, or feels artificial.

Comfort – Removable dentures can irritate your gums. Implants are pain free. Implants preserve the integrity of facial structures. By preventing the bone restoration that would normally occur with the loss of teeth, the facial structures remain intact. This is particularly important when all of the teeth are missing, as the lower one-third of the face collapses if implants are not placed to preserve the bone.

Durability – Implants are durable and will last many years – a lifetime with good care. Implants preserve the integrity of facial structures. By preventing the bone restoration that would normally occur with the loss of teeth, the facial structures remain intact. This is particularly important when all of the teeth are missing, as the lower one-third of the face collapses if implants are not placed to preserve the bone.

Self-esteem – Dental implants allow you to smile with confidence, knowing your teeth look great. Restored self-esteem and renewed self-confidence. Many of the people who now enjoy the benefits of implant supported replacement teeth state that their self-esteem and self-confidence have been restored as a result of improved appearance, function, comfort, and health.

Dental Implants – Fixed teeth for LifeYou’re Smile – Your smile is improved when replacement teeth look more like natural teeth. Even when only one tooth is missing, long term esthetics are usually much better with an implant supported replacement tooth than with a traditional tooth supported bridge. This is particularly important in the front of your mouth, where preventing a visible bone defect is critical for natural appearance.

Convenience – Dental implants eliminate the inconvenience of dentures. No more removing, cleaning, or using messy adhesives to keep your dentures in place.

Speech – Ill-fitting dentures can slip and make speech difficult. Dental implants are secure, ensuring clear speech.

Eating – Chewing can be difficult with dentures. Dental implants let you eat without worries.

Oral health – Unlike a tooth-supported bridge, dental implants don’t require altering your other teeth. This leaves more of your own teeth intact, which improves your long-term oral health. Dental implants also help prevent bone loss and tooth migration, keeping your other teeth where they should be. It is much easier to care for an implant supported crown, which can be cleaned like a natural tooth. In comparison, a tooth supported bridge requires the use of floss threaded for proper cleaning. It is also more convenient to clean a full set of implant supported replacement teeth than a traditional denture.
