There are many people that suffer from tooth loss, due to bad oral care, gum diseases or decay. But fortunately, dentistry has developed quite fast, in order to help people regain the confidence, the smile and the proper function of the teeth. A dental implant, for example, can be the perfect option for your dental health, therefore it is recommended to ask for information and guidance from our dentists in Dubai.
The dental implants can last a lifetime
Although it takes approximately six or nine months until you receive the suitable dental implant, it is important to know that it can last a lifetime, if every patient will consider the essential oral care tips and routines. Dental implants are made from titanium, a material that perfectly integrates and won’t be rejected by the organism. Regarding the purpose of a dental implant, we remind you the following aspects:
• replaces the missing root of a tooth;
• considerably improves aesthetics;
• stops bone atrophy;
• prevents gingival retraction;
• allows fixed dental prostheses.
Our Dubai dentists can provide you with suitable information about the dental implant procedure, made in our modern dental clinics, in order for you to regain the lost confidence, the smile, and the excellent appearance.
How to maintain a proper oral hygiene if you have dental implants
You should know that the dental implants can resist for many years, long-term studies on patients without any teeth showing a success rate of more than 93% with dental implants. If you properly maintain the oral care, a successful dental implant can last for about 20 years and even more. A dental implant needs regular monitoring every six months with your dentist in Dubai, besides a strict hygiene that includes interdental brushing, mouth shower and special dental floss made for dental implants. With the implant insertion technique we use, the patients will not experience any discomfort during surgery or afterward. You can return to your daily activities immediately after the procedure.
