Are dental implants
First, the dentist will cut and fill your tooth.
During that process, an injector (which includes a needle) is injected and is used to make the tooth look like it has grown,” said Annie Serling, DDS, founder and president of New York Cosmetic Dentistry and a clinical faculty member in the New York University College of Dentistry. “Then, it is placed in the jaw through a permanent implant in the tooth.”
A dental implant is an implant made of either stainless steel or ceramic. That tooth is encased in a mold for which the tooth is currently on. It’s like placing a piece of clay in the mold to make a flower. Once the mold is filled with the clay and positioned, it’s sealed. The dental implant is a thin layer of plastic with an implant. It’s a stainless steel or ceramic bar of material. It’s anchored to the jawbone. It’s placed within an implant safe containing a spring coil. The spring coil is submerged and placed in the prosthetic tooth and it vibrates the implant, creating a natural extension of the jaw.
“Safe” is a topic that should be discussed before selecting dental implants, she said. “When we say ‘safe,’ we mean that the dentist has implanted the tooth within an implant safe that’s encased in a cement. They call it a portable implant safe,” said Serling. “The dentist removes the tooth, places the implant safe within the portable safe, and the safe is encased in cement to make it a permanent implant. For the first couple of years, patients have to go to the dentistout for infection.”
Safe is the direction that Serling encourages patients to move toward when deciding to go ahead with dental implants.
Is it safe?
The work that Serling does now with dental implants has been done in the past with dental ceramic. Those implants were safe but they were fragile and prone to breakage.
Dental cavities are most commonly caused by bacteria. One example is dental plaque. For patients, plaque is safe. However, it is not safe when they drink coffee, milk, soda, or other acidic or sugary drinks. That could trigger the plaque to break up. And then that plaque would go into the mouth where it would then create cavities. Some of the bacteria that creates cavities also go into the tooth and if the tooth is placed into a bite and it’s not done properly, those bacteria will get into the bone and create an infection in the bone. That infection is safe, however, because it is within the oral cavity. But, it is not in the bone or in any other bone. It’s safe for the bone only.
“I see a lot of people who have two teeth in their mouth for the past 30 years. And, they never went to the dentist to treat
