Choose Smart and Tooth-Friendly Snacks This Summer

Sweet tooth anyone? Since sugar is so addictive we tent to eat too much of it and it can lead to problems with our teeth.

Sugar from food turns into acid in our mouth and that causes weakening of the enamel – the outer layer of our tooth. Consuming sugary food too much and too often may lead to a tooth decay.

Dental implants are small dental appliances surgically inserted into both the upper and lower jaws to replace one or more missing or diseased teeth. Today more and more people are choosing implants over removable dentures or fixed bridges. That’s largely because dentures and bridges have several disadvantages. For example, bridges can affect nearby healthy teeth, and dentures may cause bone loss in the area where the teeth are missing.

How Dental Implants Work

Dental implants are like artificial tooth roots and can be used in both the upper and lower jaws. Resembling

screws, they are made from metal called titanium and other materials that are safe for use in the human body. A

dental professional surgically attaches the implants to the jawbone and gum tissue. The implants then can be

used as an anchor for dental crowns, or artificial replacement teeth.

Patients who are in good health and have healthy gums and adequate bone to support implants are usually

considered candidates for dental implants. If you are self-conscious about your missing, diseased, or decayed

teeth, ask your dental professional if dental implants are a good option for you.
