3 Qualities of a Good Dental Clinic -

MED JOURNEY has all and even more...

Friendly Atmosphere: Regardless of whether the technologically advanced dental procedures guarantee painless treatment, people often feel anxious while visiting a dentist. The best dental clinics always maintain a friendly atmosphere and the patients are treated with compassion. A big part of the issue disappears and people feel more confident due to the humble and friendly behaviour of doctors and paramedical staff.

Modern Equipment: A good dental clinic should keep up to date with the latest technology and must have the modern machines and equipment. They should have all the necessary equipment to deliver the complete package so that you don’t have to rush to different places.

Qualified and Experienced Dentists: A good dental clinic should have highly skilled and qualified dentists in all dental specialities. The dentists should have the experience needed to diagnose and treat the most complex problems without any difficulty. They should have the knowledge and expertise to handle any case.

Dental implants

Dental implants may be right for you if you

Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones.

Dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone, where they serve as the roots of missing teeth. Because the titanium in the implants fuses with your jawbone, the implants won't slip, make noise or cause bone damage the way fixed bridgework or dentures might. And the materials can't decay like your own teeth that support regular bridgework can.

How long does the implant treatment take? Nowadays, implant operations can take as little as half an hour. However, the total time of the procedure depends on an individual’s tooth and bone structure.Typically, the procedure is carried out 3-4 months after the first operation. It is expected that during this time, a full fusion of bone and implants (osseointegration) will have taken place. However, there are implants available that can shorten this time. Your dental surgeon will be able to advise you on which implant type is right for you.

Laminates and veneers:

Dental laminates are very thin non-metal shells made out of dental ceramic. These laminates are bonded onto the front of teeth and are typically used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discoloured, worn, chipped, malformed, have gaps between them, or are slightly misaligned.The laminates are totally compatible with the body and do not cause allergies.

Zirconium-supported porcelain:

Zirconium-supported porcelain crowns are porcelains that use a white, non-metal zirconium alloy in their substructure. Aesthetically, it is difficult to distinguish them from the natural appearance of teeth.Visually, the porcelain appears more natural than metal-supported porcelain. It reflects the light and does not form a dark coloured line between the gums because of its white-coloured alloy which is used as the substructure. Like the laminates, they are completely compatible with the body and do not cause allergies.

Full porcelain crowns (Empress):

The full porcelain crowns are made from reinforced porcelain. No metal (or other substance) is used in their substructure. Full porcelain crowns have the closest aesthetic appearance to the natural tooth. However, they are more expensive.

How you prepare

The planning process for dental implants may involve a variety of specialists, including a doctor who specializes in conditions of the mouth, jaw and face (oral and maxillofacial surgeon), a dentist specializing in treating structures that support the teeth, such as gums and bones (periodontist), a dentist who designs and fits artificial teeth (prosthodontist), or occasionally an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist.

Because dental implants require one or more surgical procedures, you must have a thorough evaluation to prepare for the process, including a:

Comprehensive dental exam:

You may have dental X-rays and 3D images taken, and have models made of your teeth and jaw.

Review of your medical history:

Tell your doctor about any medical conditions and any medications you take, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs and supplements. If you have certain heart conditions or orthopedic implants, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics before surgery to help prevent infection.

Treatment plan:

Tailored to your situation, this plan takes into account factors such as how many teeth you need replaced and the condition of your jawbone and remaining teeth.

Results

Most dental implants are successful. Sometimes, however, the bone fails to fuse sufficiently to the metal implant.

Smoking, for example, may contribute to implant failure and complications.

If the bone fails to fuse sufficiently, the implant is removed, the bone is cleaned up, and you can try the procedure again in about three months.

You can help your dental work — and remaining natural teeth — last longer if you:

Practice excellent oral hygiene.

Just as with your natural teeth, keep implants, artificial teeth and gum tissue clean. Specially designed brushes, such as an interdental brush that slides between teeth, can help clean the nooks and crannies around teeth, gums and metal posts.

See your dentist regularly.

Schedule dental checkups to ensure the health and proper functioning of your implants and follow the advice for professional cleanings.

Avoid damaging habits.

Don't chew hard items, such as ice and hard candy, which can break your crowns — or your natural teeth. Avoid tooth-staining tobacco and caffeine products. Get treatment if you grind your teeth.
