Dental Implants, Bridges and Dentures Are The Best Tooth Replacements (for now)

» 18 September 2012 » In Dallas Texas Dentist, Dental Implants, Dental News, Dentist in Dallas TX, Dentures » Comments Off on Dental Implants, Bridges and Dentures Are The Best Tooth Replacements (for now)

Dental Implants Arlington Texas Dentist Tooth Replacement Teeth Implant ProcedureDental implants, bridges and dentures might become obsolete in time. Recent research has gotten us closer to discovering how to grow our own teeth!

While teeth implants, bridges and dentures are useful, they might not be the only options available for tooth replacement in the future. Researchers in Finland have found a way to pinpoint stem cells that are essential to growing teeth. Don’t get too excited yet – the stem cells they are working with belong to the incisors, or front teeth, of mice and therefore still far removed from actually growing a human tooth. However, this is still an exciting and useful discovery since mice incisors grow continuously throughout their life, and studying this process is likely to lead to information that can be used to grow human teeth. Another important application for this study is growing new dental enamel, especially since enamel wears down over time and is irreplaceable. All speculation aside, here are the options for teeth replacement:

Dentures and Chewing

» 08 April 2012 » In Dental News, Dentures » Comments Off on Dentures and Chewing

Full dentures are a prosthetic replacement of a person’s missing teeth.  Many people in the United States and throughout the world have full upper and lower dentures.  Dentures may have the “look” of natural teeth but they don’t function the same as one’s natural teeth.

Natural teeth are secured within the bone of the patients mouth and can be considered as “fixed” within the oral cavity.  Dentures are totally removable by the patient and therefore are always subject to movement when in mouth and chewing.  Teeth also are anatomically made and suited for chewing food.  Dentures have processed “plastic” teeth and have a much flatter look to them than naturally occurring teeth and are made to chew much differently.

When someone with natural teeth chews food it is moved around the oral cavity and easily digested.  Chewing is very dynamic with the jaw moving in multiple directions with various pressures exerted while chewing.  One can exert great amounts of pressure with natural teeth while chewing without any issues.

Dentures are not anything like natural teeth in regard to chewing.  With dentures food is basically “mashed” while eating.  Chewing is accomplished by the jaws moving in more of an up-and-down motion as the food is mashed between the upper and lower denture.  There is much less dynamic movement of the jaws when chewing with dentures.  The pressure exerted by dentures is far less than that of natural teeth.  If one attempted to exert too much pressure the dentures would move dramatically making chewing very difficult.

Therefore, chewing with dentures is not anything like natural teeth and this should be a major consideration when thinking about tooth replacement choices.  Another option would be that of something more secure within the mouth as that of a fixed bridge(s) or an implant related treatment plan.

Implant or a Bridge for Single Tooth Replacement?

» 06 April 2012 » In Dental Implants, Dental News, Teeth Health » Comments Off on Implant or a Bridge for Single Tooth Replacement?

When missing a tooth, which would you choose….a dental implant or a dental bridge?  For many years fixed or permanent bridges were used to replace missing anterior or posterior teeth.  Today, dental implants are the first choice when discussing tooth replacement.  By using implants the adjacent teeth on either side of the space are not affected.  “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” applies very well in this situation.  When using a bridge, typically the adjacent teeth must be “cut” or prepared so that they may be used as abutments or “anchor” teeth for the missing tooth.  Many times the adjacent teeth may be totally healthy and therefore no dental reason why they would be included in the facilitation of making the bridge.

Implant procedures for single teeth would not include the adjacent teeth at all.  Basically, the area of the missing tooth is the only consideration.  An implant is placed in the area where the tooth is needed without touching the adjacent teeth.  An abutment and crown is then placed on the implant and the procedure is complete.

Implants work very well within the mouth and serve as excellent solutions to replacing missing teeth.  Implants have a longevity when planned and completed by competent dental professionals.  Bridges may have worked well in the past  but today dental implants are one’s first choice when discussing choices for tooth replacement.

Tooth Discoloration / Stained Teeth / Dark Teeth

» 02 April 2012 » In Dental News, Teeth Health, Teeth Whitening » Comments Off on Tooth Discoloration / Stained Teeth / Dark Teeth

Tooth discoloration is a common issue that all dental office’s encounter.  Typically, patients will present with questions about their smile and will ask  “Why are my teeth darker in color?.  Most of the time people will be inquiring about their anterior or front teeth as they are the most visible when smiling. Professional teeth whitening is a simple and painless process that can resolve this predicament.

There are many different reasons why teeth may discolor.  Reasons may either be intrinsic, or “within” the tooth structure or extrinsic, “outside staining” of the enamel of the tooth.  A dentist can usually determine which type of discoloration a person may have after an examination of the teeth.  There are many and varied causes of discoloration, both intrinsic and extrinsic.  Many of these issues can be eliminated or at least reduced after visiting a dentist. Our Dallas TX Dental Office is proud to offer a full selection of Cosmetic Dental services to help combat any cosmetic issue.

Flossing and Heart Disease

» 02 April 2012 » In Dental News, Dentistry and Health » Comments Off on Flossing and Heart Disease

This must be a mistake ?  How can flossing and heart disease be related?  One has to do with teeth and the other with my life…  Well, it’s true and there is an association between flossing, or lack thereof, and heart disease.  Research can now support claims that bacteria within the oral cavity can be associated with heart disease, and flossing, or a professional teeth cleaning is the solution!

We have to remember that the “mouth and teeth” are connected to the rest of the body.  Blood flows throughout the body and bacteria in one area of the body can be transported to another area as well.  Research has shown that people with heart issues also may also have an unhealthy mouth, including teeth and gums.  By getting the teeth and gums in better shape the severity and extent of the heart disease can be reduced.

So just remember when you floss you are not only keeping those teeth and gums healthy but also reducing your chance of having bad bacteria near your heart.
