Dental Implants – must for broken teeth

Why you should choose dental implants to replace a broken tooth

Tooth breakages can occur at any point — often when you least expect it. But you don’t have to put up with the discomfort of a broken tooth. In fact, it’s essential to get a broken tooth addressed as quickly as possible. The faster a breakage is seen to, the more the damage can be contained. In addition to physical damage, tooth breakages can also result in tooth discolouration and contribute to dental decay.

An excellent solution to consider when you’re faced with a broken tooth is having a dental implant. Implants are used to support false teeth. An artificial titanium tooth root is inserted into your jawbone, and the dentist can mount a false tooth onto this root just as a natural tooth has a root. Dental implants are safe and look and feel natural, restoring not only your missing tooth but your confidence, too!

Implants have a natural appearance

Implants are designed to fit in with the rest of your teeth — which means that they both look, and feel, natural. Plaque can build up on implants that are not cleaned properly, so you still have to wash your teeth as normal as so to ensure that the gum around your tooth stays healthy. Dental implants are also strong and secure. A dental implant, when inserted properly, will not slide or slip. This helps ensure the security and stability of your teeth, as well as eliminating other issues such as gum irritation and exposed nerves. The strength of implants gives you excellent reliability, as well as wonderful comfort.

Aftercare for your implants

After you’re fitted with your dental implants, it’s important to care for them as you would, your other teeth. As we’ve already discussed, the substance that they’re made of are impervious to decay, but it’s still essential to clean in and around them ensue that the gums and neighbouring teeth are kept clean and healthy. An excellent tool to help with this is The Doctor’s Brushpicks. You should also regularly see your dentist, who will also help ensure that your implants are staying strong and secure, and will help you immediately address any issues that you might have.

How to Care for Your Dental Implants

Although dental implants are a safe and secure long-term solution to many dental issues, such as broken or missing teeth, they still require care and upkeep to make sure they stay in prime condition. Caring for your dental implants ensures that you will continue to find them extremely comfortable and hardy.

For the first few weeks

After you’ve been fitted with your dental implants, it’s essential to go about your dental health care regime as you would normally — which means regular flossing, brushing and using mouthwash. Establishing a regular and thorough dental hygiene regime is essential in ensuring that you continue to find your dental implants comfortable.  

Although the substance that your implants are made out of is resistant to decay, it is still possible for plaque to build up on your implant. Regular teeth cleaning is a vital part of keeping your gums around your implant healthy. An excellent way to take this care to the next level is to use The Doctor’s Brushpicks, which you can use to clean the nooks and crannies between your teeth, ensuring that anything that might cause bad breath, or damage to your gums, is removed.

In the first year

It’s important to regularly touch base with your dentist after you’ve been fitted with dental implants. This means that if any issues arrive, it’ll be possible to address them speedily and efficiently.

Check ups are also an essential part of your dental health care routine outside of your dental implants. Seeing a dentist regularly will help you make sure that there are no issues with your teeth that aren’t fitted with implants, and that your gums are healthy.

When you choose dental implants, you’re making a long-term choice. Dental implants have a life-long guarantee, but it’s essential to take care of them. As the years go by, you have to keep up with regular dentist check-ups, as well as your own dental regime.  Keeping up both sides of this regime is an essential part of taking care of your implants and ensuring that they continue to look as natural, and feel as comfortable, as they did when they were first fitted.

If you’re considering getting dental implants, or would like to learn more, please contact The Centre for Implant Dentistry – they are there to help you get the smile you want.

Clean 5 sides of your teeth

Are you effectively cleaning all 5 side of your teeth with your oral health regime? Did you even know that you had five surfaces?

We all need to take a 5 D approach to cleaning our teeth. Dentist and dental expert Ash Parmar agrees.

Ash Parmar of Smile Design by Ash ( says “Our teeth have five accessible surfaces – hence the 5D routine – and it is vital to thoroughly remove plaque from all of these on a daily basis to keep the mouth in tip top condition. A poor dental hygiene routine may result in plaque build-up which is the start of tooth decay and gum disease. Sometimes it might even lead to bone and tooth loss not to mention bad breath and a less than white smile. The 5D approach is the foundation for healthy teeth and gums and fresh breath confidence.”

Don’t forget to integrate our world’s best interdental brushes, the Doctor’s BrushPicks into your 5D routine. Cleaning between the teeth will dislodge plaque from hidden sides’ surfaces.
