It is much better to keep and restore your teeth (if possible) even if it is time consuming by using several methods of treatments. This is much better than pulling teeth and inserting dental implants. If the tooth is damaged severely; sometimes it is needed to perform several treatments such as root canal, increasing crown length, using veneers or sometimes all of them.

Sometimes patients are faced with this question: “Isn’t it much better to pay a little higher cost for dental implant and ignore several time consuming methods?” The answer is: first, higher costs don’t always mean successful treatment. Second, when the risk factors are higher in some treatment procedures; your dentist will suggest you to have implant treatment instead of other treatment procedures.
How observing oral health points can effect on success rate and improving dental implant life span?
Because there is no defensive barriers for dental implants; so, dental implants are more sensitive to germs aggregations compared with natural teeth. Observing all oral health points for dental implant area is a little bit harder. Therefore, you have to pay more attention for observing dental implant health care to increase the dental implant life span.
In normal conditions; people lose their teeth after the age of 70. If you observe oral health points during your life; you will never face with severe problems such as early teeth lost to be forced for performing special treatments such as dental implant. Tooth lost can happen because of tooth decay, oral diseases or sever impacts on them.
Dental implants are made of pure Titanium or its alloys so they are not susceptible to decay as natural teeth but it doesn’t mean that there is no need for special care of implants or observing dental implant health points. If the main health points are not observed for dental implants; microbes and germs accumulated around the implant and will cause bone decay. In this case, damages to dental implant are very sever and may even destroy it completely.
Is it possible to have dental implant for the patients with severe depleted bones? When the jaw bone is severely depleted; for example, in an accident or long-term usage of removable dentures or tumors; it is not possible to use artificial materials for bone restoration. On the other hand, it is not possible to extract enough bone from the patient’s oral cavity. In these cases, the implant expert has to extract needed bone for implant treatment from other parts of the patient’s body such as rib or hip bone. These cases are very rare and are considered as the last solutions for implant.
The correct definition of implants:
Implant is a kind of reconstruction and restoration of dental health because in this procedure, chewing, correct speaking and aesthetic aspects of teeth are considered. In fact, restoration of teeth by dental implement increases the beauty of the face and on the other hand, it is a kind of treatment. But, it will prescribe for a number of people. For example; smokers with 20 cigarettes per day are not good candidates for dental Implant. Also people with osteoporosis and diabetes are not good candidates for dental Implants because it is ineffective.
