What is a Dental Implant?Single tooth implant in the centre

Almost all dental implants in use today are made from titanium or titanium alloy, materials that have been shown over many years to be well tolerated by bone. The terms 'osseointegrated implants' or 'endosseous implants' are widely used to describe dental implants that can develop and maintain a close union with bone in order to support replacement teeth.

There are many different implant systems available and when competently used they can all deliver a highly reliable form of treatment.

A study carried out at Guy's, King's and St Thomas' Dental Institute (GKT) by D M Davis1, J Fiske2, B Scott3 & D R Radford4, was used to explore the emotional effects of dentalimplants3tooth loss: 45% of people had difficulties in accepting the loss of their teeth.

Gum Treatment

What are the stages of gum disease? How is gum disease treated?Gum disease has several stages. The initial stage is called gingivitis and is an infection of the gingival (gum tissue). In this stage, gums become red, swollen, and prone to bleeding. The underlying bone is unaffected. In later stages, however, gum disease can lead to bone loss and the loosening or even loss of teeth.Gum disease treatment varies according to the stage of the disease. At its mildest stages, gingivitis can be treated by clearing plaque and tartar deposits from the gum pockets. Severe gum disease, on the other hand, might require treatment that includes bone and gum grafts.

Brushing the teeth: Most dentists agree that toothpaste does little more than improve "mouth feel" and provide flavor while brushing the teeth. Far more important is the way the teeth are brushed, and the type and condition of the toothbrush.  Some toothpastes make claims of brightening the teeth, but they do so only to the extent that they help remove adherent stain.

Dental bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a common procedure in general dentistry but most especially in the field of cosmetic dentistry. A child's deciduous teeth are generally whiter than the adult teeth that follow. As a person ages the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, as the enamel becomes less porous.

In the situation that a tooth is considered so threatened (because of decay, cracking, etc.) that future infection is considered likely or inevitable, a pulpectomy, removal of the pulp tissue, is advisable to prevent such infection. Usually, some inflammation and/or infection is already present within or below the tooth.
