Dental Implant

Recently I met up with an old friend and we had a great time of catching up with each other over lunch. During lunch, I noticed my friend was taking his time to chew his food. I make mentioned about it to him and he started to share with me his story.

He had been to the dentist and came away with a denture. According to him, to have the denture fitted properly, he needed to use dental adhesive. But sometimes the adhesive is not very effective in holding the denture in place and that was the reason he was taking his time to chew his food. Once the denture is loosen, if some small and hard food particles e.g. like crushed roasted peanut get under the denture, it can be very uncomfortable or even painful. He admitted to me that wearing a denture can be very inconvenient and he is looking for an alternative. When he went back to his dentist, his dentist recommended a dental implant. The dentist quoted a price and my friend needed time to think about it.

On one of his overseas business trip, he was introduced to dentaldeparture.com through a businessman. The businessman had done an all-on-4 dental implant and it was a successful implant. My friend found out that getting a dental implant is very much cheaper overseas. He was assured that the dentists listed under dentaldeparture.com were pre-screened and they are highly qualified dentist with many years of experience.

My friend has yet to decide on the dental implant. With a dental implant, he need not have to use dental adhesive and he need not have to take out his denture every night before he sleeps. With a dental implant, it will be fitted permanently and be like his own natural teeth. With proper care, the dental implant will last a long time.

Wrinkles are usually found between the brows, sometimes called the frown lines. Wrinkles can also be found at the bridge of nose. Crow’s feet are wrinkles found at the corners of the eyes. There are also wrinkles found near the mouth. Some try to hide the wrinkles with layers of makeups on their or wear high collars to hide the sagging skin on their neck. There are some who have gone for wrinkle treatment to restore their youthful appearance.

These wrinkles could be reduced to give a smoother and a more youthful appearance by going through a facial rejuvenation. The types of treatments depends on how far the patients want to go with their facelifts.

Facial rejuvenation procedures includes both surgical and non-surgical treatments. There are many types of non-surgical treatment. Some common ones are e.g. a series of injections or laser beams to diminish the wrinkles and to smoothen the skin. Surgical treatments are more effective for deep lines or wrinkles, loose skin, excessive fatty tissue, etc. These facelifts are performed under general anaesthetic.

It is best to get the advice of the cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist on the types of treatment that is best for the skin type. Prospective clients also need to discuss with the specialist on the pros and cons of the types of treatments recommended and the cost involved.

Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease

Healthy gums are more than just a sign that you take good care of your teeth; they’re also a sign of good overall health. If you stand in front of a mirror and flash those pearly whites, you should clearly see plump, coral pink flesh extending over the roots of your teeth. If your gums don’t look healthy, you’re not alone – you may be one of the almost 65 million Americans who suffer from various stages of gum disease. Depending on your residential region and age bracket, you may lean toward mild, moderate, or advanced periodontitis, a severe gum disease that can lead to other serious medical conditions. Why are so many lives affected by such an easily controlled problem?

What Is Gum Disease and Why Is It So Common?

Gum disease is an affliction that affects the health and security of many Americans at some point in their lives. The disease is gradual but advances quickly within two stages of maturity: gingivitis and periodontitis, the latter also known as periodontal (or full-fledged gum) disease. One of the great dangers of periodontitis is that most people don’t even know they have it.

When bacteria build up in the mouth, sticky plaque attaches to all surface areas of the mouth, but especially to the gums and teeth. The substance can easily be removed via personal oral health care and proper professional cleanings. But when either are avoided or ignored for too long, the built-up plaque turns into calculus, or tartar. When the tartar is ignored, toxins caused by bacterial by-products infect the gums, and this is the beginning of gum disease known as gingivitis. At this early stage, gum disease can easily be reversed by a professional dental cleaning and proper personal oral health care.

Of course, many people who get gingivitis already have poor dental habits which allow the infection to spread. Full-blown periodontal disease can develop within weeks. By then, the problem exhibits clear signs and symptoms, and corrective success rates are completely dependent upon how quickly you seek dental assistance.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease?

Almost all diseases have specific risk factors that can exacerbate the signs or symptoms, and being aware helps you better avoid them. The common risks of gum disease include poor oral health care, smoking, genetics, stress, diabetes, immune deficiencies, defective dental treatments, dry mouth caused disease or medication, and hormonal changes. Some of these factors are more easily managed than others, but addressing all of them is an important first step in the prevention of severe gum disease.

Periodontal disease is an inflammatory disease, and one of the most common signs is swollen and/or discolored gums. At the early stages of gingivitis, gums may be splotchy, bright red, purple, or even shiny. Gums are often tender and bleed when gingivitis is present, but teeth are still intact. Periodontal disease may progress relatively slowly – from weeks to months – and, in advanced stages, is the most common reason for adult tooth loss in advanced stages.

Ignoring mouth pain is a grave mistake. While gingivitis is easily reversed, advanced stages of gum disease aren’t. Periodontitis symptoms build on those of gingivitis and extend to sore, sensitive, and loose teeth, painful chewing, receding gums, foul breath, and puss or sores within the mouth. Isn’t your health and happiness worth a trip to the dentist?
