Tooth Decay & Dental Implants

Tooth decay is one of the most common oral issues. Cavities are most often caused due to the accumulated plaque and tartar, which contain thousands of harmful bacteria. These bacteria release acids that have the potential to erode the enamel, leading to cavities. Cavities are one of the leading causes of tooth extraction around the world.

A severely infected tooth is most often treated using filling material. Usually, tooth-colored ceramic/composite fillings are used to fill cavities and they are pretty efficient at solving the issue. When the condition gets even worse, the cavity could progress on to the root canal cavity, where the dental pulp will be infected, causing severe pain and bleeding. A root canal therapy is the last resort method of saving a badly infected tooth, which if unsuccessful, would lead to a tooth extraction

Restore a decayed tooth using a dental implant

A decayed tooth can prove highly disadvantageous, especially in terms of facial aesthetics and functionality. Also, the pain and hypersensitivity that it can induce are immense. When no means of treatment help to save the tooth, it will have to be extracted to prevent the infection from spreading to the nearby teeth and tissues.

A dental implant is the best solution to replace an extracted tooth. It would replace both the tooth root and the crown, which is why it is known to prevent the drifting of the remaining teeth. Since it is made from ceramic and titanium, there is absolutely no chance of your prosthetic tooth getting infected by tooth decay. Also, its aesthetics is so flawless that anyone who would look at you smile wouldn’t have the faintest idea that you have an implant on.

When it comes to the functionality of the implants, they offer amazing strength and stability. The ceramic material that is used to fabricate the crown is highly stain-resistant and durable. This makes them long-lasting and reliable.
