Dental implants in Dubai

Sep 02 2018 By Dr. Iyad Estoiny - Implantologist and General Dentist

Dental implants are used as a part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry to replace missing teeth. The implant acts as a tooth root replacement and consists of a titanium post that is surgically inserted into your jaw bone where you have lost a tooth. Teeth or dentures can then be attached to these implants to restore a natural looking smile.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and can usually last for decades, however there are several factors which can affect how long the implant will last. The condition of the jawbone surrounding the implant may change or weaken as you get older. If the implant is for a tooth that is used for chewing or biting, it might suffer from more wear and tear that an implant in a different area of the jaw. Some patients may have medical conditions which weaken the integrity of the jaws, gums and surrounding teeth that are holding the implant in place.

In many cases, the dental implant often exceeds the life of the crown or denture attached to it. Although most implants can be expected to last between 15 and 20 years, some have been known to last a lifetime. On occasion, your dentist may have to re-tighten or replace some implants due to normal wear, but good oral hygiene, solid eating habits, and regular dental visits will help extend the life of your dental implant.

How Do You Care for Dental Implants?
Just like your natural teeth, dental implants require you to follow a thorough daily oral hygiene routine. Brushing and flossing between teeth every day is a must. An interdental stimulator can be used to help keep the surrounding gum tissue healthy. Try to rinse your mouth after meals to remove food particles that may become embedded around the implant area and use an antibacterial mouthwash to reduce the likelihood of plaque and tartar formation. It is also important that you visit your dentist regularly so that they can assess the health of all your teeth and inspect the dental implant. Of course, if you feel any pain or discomfort around the implant area you should contact your dentist straight away.

Don’t live with missing teeth any longer - dental implants can be the key to completing your smile. With proper oral hygiene, dental implants can be permanent restorations that will leave you smiling for a very long time.
