Anxious Patients and their Dental Fears

Are you afraid of going to the dentist for your regular dental check-up? If going to the dental clinic for a routine dental appointment scares you, then even the idea of going through a more complicated dental treatment may be enough to send you into a panic attack. Dental fear is one of the main reasons why good dental health is not achieved. It is common for nervous patients to do whatever it takes just to avoid going to their dentist. A number of factors may contribute to the dental anxiety condition, which can worsen with the passage of time.

Patients may feel anxious at the idea of seeing the dentist because of previous bad experiences with other dentists, or because of preconceived ideas about dentists in general. Some are embarrassed at the state of their teeth, and feel highly uncomfortable about letting a stranger (the dentist) look at their mouths and pass judgment on their dental health. Another cause for anxiety is the dental drill: the noise produced by the drill can increase nervousness, and some people associate the bothersome dental drill sound with pain.

A nervous patient will be even more afraid of the dentist if a complicated procedure, such as an implant treatment, is involved. The patient may think that such a treatment will definitely come with pain and discomfort. Nervous patient care options such as conscious sedation are offered at Life Dental Implants to make the treatments more comfortable for those who have dental fear. Conscious sedation makes it possible for an anxious patient to have the necessary dental treatment with a positive experience.

Implants to Solve Multiple Tooth Loss Problems

Multiple tooth loss can be a devastating experience. If you lose most of your teeth, you will immediately feel and see the problems associated with missing teeth. What were once effortless activities, such as eating, speaking clearly, or biting on food will become extremely difficult and even painful to manage. You might find it embarrassing to smile even a little, because that small act will show unsightly gaps in your smile caused by the multiple tooth loss.

An implant treatment at Life Dental Implants London can solve the problems associated with the loss of a few or all of your teeth. Implants are attached directly to your jawbone to replace the function of lost tooth roots, preventing the problems caused by bone deterioration. The titanium implants are used to hold the teeth restorations firmly in place, so they can be used with confidence without fear of unnecessary movement – a problem that loose denture wearers are unfortunately very familiar with. Teeth restorations that are attached to implants will not move inside the mouth, and can be relied upon to stay securely in place, attached to the jawbone.

Implants and custom-made teeth restorations bring back the naturally attractive appearance of the smile. After an implant treatment, you will have the confidence to once again smile brightly without fear of exposing your toothless condition. You will get to enjoy once again your meal times, as well as normal speech, with the help of an implant treatment to solve multiple tooth loss problems.

Revive your Smile with Dental Implants

Your smile goes through an unwelcome transformation when you lose your teeth – regardless of the number of teeth involved. A healthy-looking smile will immediately look unattractive with the loss of even one tooth. The small space created by tooth loss serves as a glaring reminder that a dental problem has occurred, and that it needs to be resolved in the soonest possible time. The problem is magnified with the loss of multiple or all teeth, resulting in problems concerning the smile’s aesthetics and function.

Is it possible to revive your smile after losing most or all of your teeth? An implant treatment from Life Dental Implants can bring back the attractiveness and good health of your smile, even after you have suffered from missing teeth problems. The implants work by replacing the role of missing tooth roots, maintaining the health of the jawbone and preventing further bone deterioration. The titanium implants are embedded into the jawbone to serve as secure posts to which the teeth restorations can then be attached.

After an implant treatment, the function and aesthetics of the smile is revived. You can go about your normal activities such as eating, laughing, smiling, and speaking normally without any difficulties, and with great comfort. The yawning, toothless spaces are replaced with a complete, healthy-looking smile which can also bring back your confidence.

The Importance of Regular Hygiene Treatments

Hygiene treatments involve much more than “just cleaning the teeth”. There are some people who do not go for hygiene treatments because of the idea that they can clean properly their teeth in the comfort of their own homes. While good personal oral hygiene is essential to keeping your smile healthy, there are other benefits that you can reap when you go for regular visits to the dentist, or to your dental hygienist.

Aside from cleaning your teeth, the dental hygienist also has the expertise to give you preventative dental care. This means that the hygienist is experienced in detecting the earliest signs of dental or oral problems, so they can be diagnosed and properly treated before they have a chance to become more complicated dental issues. Looking at your mouth thoroughly from even a very close personal perspective, you will most likely neglect to see dental problems unless they have progressed into glaring abnormalities on your teeth or gums.

Regular hygiene treatments can also help you prevent bad breath problems. Aside from giving you fresher breath, the hygienist can also provide you with tips on how to prevent gum disease. The regular hygienist visits will also be beneficial in keeping your teeth looking as bright and as clean as possible. The professional examination of your mouth can augment your personal oral hygiene habits so you can enjoy a healthier smile for a longer period of time.

Will Dental Implants Last for a Long Time?

Dental implants are ideal solutions for missing teeth problems. The artificial tooth roots are attached to the jawbone and will securely hold teeth restorations in place, to bring back the normal function and appearance of the smile. Unlike removable dentures that have the tendency to become loose with long-term use, dental implants can be trusted to provide reliable missing teeth solutions for a long period of time, especially with the proper care and use.

After an implant treatment, proper care should be given to the implant system to ensure its continued good health for years to come. The teeth restorations (such as dental crowns or a dental bridge) and the implants may be made from artificial materials, but this does not mean that they are not susceptible to damage when they are not properly taken care of. As the implants are embedded into the jawbone, any dental problems that affect the general mouth area can affect the implant’s health as well.

Good oral hygiene is highly important in maintaining the proper condition of the implant system. Tooth brushing should be done on a regular basis, to keep food debris and bacteria away from the areas surrounding the implants and the teeth restorations. Proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits will also ensure that good gum health is maintained. The gums provide structural support to the implants, so keeping the gums healthy will be hugely beneficial in keeping the implant system working perfectly for a long period of time.

The Emotional Stress Caused by Missing Teeth

If you have missing teeth, you will experience a host of problems from the moment of tooth loss, until the problem is addressed properly. Drastic changes in your physical appearance will be the most obvious (and the first) result of losing natural teeth. Even a single missing tooth can make you look instantly unattractive. You will also experience problems with the way your teeth function. Meal times can be particularly challenging without natural teeth; what was once an enjoyable activity can turn into a painful ordeal with missing teeth.

Missing teeth problems can take their toll emotionally as well. The simple act of smiling can become a challenging one if you know that your smile does not look healthy or attractive because of the gaps caused by tooth loss. Imagine having to put on the breaks every time you want to smile, for fear of embarrassment and judgment from other people. Tooth loss can also takes its toll on your confidence, and with the way you interact with those around you on a daily basis.

You can relieve the emotional stress of losing your natural teeth by turning to the ideal missing teeth solution – dental implants. An implant treatment at Life Dental Implants can bring back the normal function and healthy appearance of your smile. Once the implants and the corresponding artificial teeth are in place, you will be able to eat, smile, and speak normally again. Dental implants can ease the emotional burden caused by being toothless, giving you the chance to enjoy life once more.

The Pain of Wearing Loose Dentures

Missing teeth can quickly be resolved with removable dentures, which replace the normal appearance and function of lost teeth. The dentures are designed to fit comfortably against the palate, so it stays in place with normal wear and use. The artificial teeth can be used for a few years in a comfortable manner – until they start to loosen. As the dentures lose their tight fit, they will start to cause discomfort for the wearer.

Loose dentures will move in an uncontrolled manner inside the mouth. Each movement such as those made when chewing or speaking, the dentures will move from their place against the palate. Every time the artificial teeth move, they rub painfully against the palate, gums, and inner cheek areas. These repetitive movements cause uncomfortable friction which may result to the development of mouth sores. Aside from being painful, ill-fitting dentures can also cause a great deal of embarrassment to the wearer.

An implant treatment at Life Dental Implants can solve loose denture problems, and the pain that this issue results to. Dental implants will be placed at strategic points in the mouth to maximise existing jawbone, and will then be used to anchor a fixed dental bridge in place. The teeth replacements will be secure, without worries of unnecessary movement as they are attached to the jawbone through the implants.

Start your Day without Morning Breath

As you wake up after a restful night of sleep, you want only the most pleasant things to ease you into a new day. An awful smell when you open your mouth will definitely jolt you awake, but in an unpleasant manner. That good morning greeting won’t hold the same meaning when you have bad breath upon waking up. Just imagine what that foul smell can do to your loved one very early in the morning, every day!

What causes morning breath? The answer: basically, the same things that cause bad breath during other times of the day. Any food pieces left inside the mouth can interact with bacteria, causing the unpleasant smells. Make sure that you thoroughly brush your teeth before going to sleep to remove all food particles. Cleaning your tongue with a toothbrush or a tongue scraper can also reduce the incidence of morning breath.

Morning breath can also be caused by dry mouth. Bacteria inside the mouth can multiply more quickly when saliva production is reduced. When you sleep with your mouth open, your mouth becomes dry as a result – and morning breath greets you when you wake up. Try shifting to a new sleeping position to avoid having your mouth open while you sleep, so you can improve your chances of eliminating the unwelcome morning breath.

How Reliable are Cheap Dental Implants?

The loss of natural teeth can cause a host of problems, especially if the problem is left unaddressed for a long period of time. This problem can be solved with the help of dental implants, which restore the healthy function and appearance of the smile after tooth loss. However, some people may be reluctant to even consider an implant treatment because of the cost involved. This is the reason why cheap dental implants can be very attractive to those who are looking to solve their missing teeth issues.

Cheap dental implants may seem to provide the solutions for your tooth loss, but are you sure you can rely on these cheaper alternatives? Let’s take a while to consider what makes them inexpensive. Cheaper implants may not have passed the rigorous clinical tests that more recognized implant systems have to go through. This means that there are no guarantees on how long they will last, or if they can withstand the rigours of daily use.

The shortcuts that led to the lower price of unknown implant systems may cause safety issues. These cheaper implants may even put you at risk for infections and other problems after the implant placement. Ask your implant dentist at Life Dental Implants for reliable implant brands that can give you peace of mind as you enjoy your life with healthier, brighter smiles – even after suffering from tooth loss.

How your Smile Affects your Professional Life

Depending on the nature of your job, you will have to deal with different kinds of people (and on different levels). Facing other people, either in formal corporate meetings or in more casual sessions, will involve you conversing with them on some level. If you are not confident with the appearance of your teeth or smile, you may find yourself shying away from most forms of social interactions – and this may be affecting your professional life more than you think.

Are you confident with how your smile looks like? If not, it can be difficult to look forward to meetings or gatherings that put you in close contact with your colleagues because you are insecure with your appearance. For example: you may decline the opportunity to give a speech because you know that a missing teeth problem will make it difficult to speak clearly. Crooked or stained teeth can diminish your confidence, making you shy away from the chance to talk to someone you look up to. Think of the opportunities you may be throwing away for your career, because your unattractive smile holds you back from getting closer to the people you want to talk to.

Addressing your cosmetic dentistry needs can boost the future of both your personal and professional life. Making your smile more attractive can give you the confidence to go after what you really want – both personally and professionally. You can have dental implants to replace your missing teeth; a teeth whitening treatment for a brighter smile; or a complete smile makeover to address all of the issues you have with your smile’s appearance. Get in touch with us at Life Dental Implants now to know the treatment options available, so you can soon have the confidence to reach for your full potential.
