Address tooth loss with a dental implant Melbourne

There are different factors that can result in tooth loss and as an adult whatever age you may be this can be a very distressing situation to find yourself in. Some factors are avoidable such as poor dental hygiene or avoiding the dentist. It is important that you visit the dentist at least once every six months and that you maintain excellent dental hygiene by brushing at least twice a day and flossing after meal times, using a good mouthwash and avoiding unhealthy habits or poor dietary choices.

Smoking is a common cause of tooth loss. Studies show that regular smokers have a significantly increased chance of dental health issues which can result in tooth loss. Drug abuse also makes you significantly more prone to tooth loss therefore by choosing to maintain a healthy lifestyle you can promote better dental health. A poor diet can also have a detrimental impact on your teeth. A poor diet can cause tooth decay especially if you are fond of sweets and chocolates. Bacteria in the mouth feed on the sugars in the food that you eat and release acids that damage the enamel of your teeth causing cavities which result in tooth decay and irreversible damage so that you either have to undergo a tooth extraction or your tooth falls out of its own accord. Gum disease is another major cause of missing teeth. Gum disease occurs mainly as a result of poor oral hygiene and avoiding the dentist. Gum disease can cause your teeth to become loose until they fall out.

Dental implants

If you have missing teeth then you need to speak to your dentist and find out about replacing your missing teeth sooner rather than later. The longer you wait the more detrimental this can be for your remaining teeth. Tooth replacement may take some time which is why it is important to begin treatment as soon as you can. One of the most popular ways of replacing the missing tooth is with a dental implant Melbourne. A dental implant Melbourne is a small titanium screw which can be placed into your jaw bone to replace the root of your missing tooth. By replacing the root with a dental implant Melbourne you can have a prosthetic of your choice that will be fixed securely into place to restore the appearance, function and health of your teeth. A dental implant Melbourne is an excellent alternative to traditional dental prosthetics. such as a set of dentures which are not fixed in place and therefore can rub against your gum, affect your ability to chew and eat comfortably and sometimes slip out if you cough or sneeze. This can be embarrassing, it can be uncomfortable and it can affect your day-to-day activities.

Speak to your dentist and find out how a dental implant Melbourne can change the way your dentures work and become a fixed part of your mouth. With a dental implant Melbourne you can forget about your missing tooth as the implant allows the prosthetic to look and feel like your natural dentition. The process itself can take between 6 and 12 months so speak to your dentist and begin the journey to replacing your missing teeth as soon as possible.
