Introduction to Artificial Teeth
There is nothing as comforting as knowing that you can have a second alternative or option in life if something you value so much or is part of you disappears. That is the same case when it comes to getting new dental implants after losing your real teeth on various circumstances such as accidents.
The whole dental implants process is a long one because for it to be successful it has to be performed accurately without leaving out any details if it is to serve someone a lifetime. So if you ever decide to undergo a cosmetic dental process, you should make up your mind fully without leaving room for second thoughts.
The best thing about these artificial teeth is that you can hardly tell them apart from the real ones because they look alike. You remain a happy soul after the healing process because the teeth are supposed to serve you permanently as long as you live.
Fixed and Removable Artificial Teeth
You can however choose if you will be more comfortable with fixed or removable teeth, or if you can handle both depending on the type you are okay with. Let us understand the two options better.
Removable artificial teeth; this is similar to the dentures that you can remove at will. This artificial tooth is usually surrounded with a plastic gum and mounted on a metal frame that holds it in place on the abutment. This can be removed for cleaning purposes or even repair after which it is taken back.
Fixed artificial teeth; unlike the removable artificial teeth, the fixed one is usually screwed into an abutment for individual implant and with this you can only clean in its place because it is not removable. Several bridged teeth can be replaced with one implant because it is usually exceptionally strong.
After the whole procedure is complete, there comes the healing process which you are supposed to treat according to the guide information you are given. There are also discomforts that may arise from the procedure such as minor bleeding, swelling of the gums and face, painful gum especially where the implant has been performed and all these are discomforts which can be brought under control by antibiotic medications. If the discomforts persist even after medicating them you can proceed to see the surgeon who performed the implants on you.
