How Oral Health Impacts Your Confidence

Nothing new needs to be said about the importance of teeth in determining beauty and providing health. Dental bonding becomes important when teeth are lost due to some unavoidable reasons. After the natural teeth are lost, artificial teeth are fitted by the dentist. Dentist Anandhi describes the special features of this artificial tooth. Historical records indicate that artificial teeth have been in practice since 700 BC. At that time, animal teeth were used for this along with human teeth. This changed over time and from the 1800s artificial teeth were invented to look like teeth. Metals like gold and silver were used in this. After this many changes were achieved and according to the color of the teeth it was made of materials like Ceramic, Acrylic and came into use.

If you are not able to chew food properly, you will suffer from indigestion and stomach problems. Due to this, there is a high possibility of health problems and diabetes. Losing a few teeth also weakens the rest of the teeth in the mouth without proper grip. 

Teeth are naturally movable. Therefore, if any tooth is missing, the other teeth will also move. If the tooth is not fixed in the damaged place or between the teeth, the other good teeth will also be lost little by little. If the teeth fall out in people above 12 years old, new teeth will not sprout. Between 6 months and 2 ½ years of age, a child erupts 20 teeth. These 20 teeth are called milk teeth. These fall between the ages of 6 and 12 and 28 permanent teeth erupt. The last 4 teeth erupt between the ages of 17 and 24. Out of these 32 (28+4) teeth, any tooth that falls out does not grow back naturally. Therefore it becomes mandatory to wear artificial teeth.

Who can get dentures? Dentures are essential for anyone who has lost teeth between the ages of 6 and 100. Even if the baby's teeth fall out. Artificial teeth are also fitted to allow the permanent teeth to grow in at the proper spacing. If the first 28 erupted teeth out of 32 permanent teeth are lost, artificial teeth must be implanted. After the age of 17, the last 4 molars (wisdom teeth) do not require a replacement tooth. 

Who should not get dentures? Artificial teeth should not be implanted in people with epilepsy, or cancer, and pacemaker implanted in the heart. Apart from those with such medical conditions, all those who have lost other teeth and those who are of mature (non-evolving) age also need artificial teeth. 

How are dentures fitted? The wound should heal after losing or removing teeth. An artificial tooth is implanted only when the gums and adjacent teeth are healthy after the wound has healed.; For denture placement, the jaw size or mouth size is taken and the denture is made according to your facial shape and the size of the teeth. The period for this varies from 4 days to 2 weeks depending on the type of teeth. Artificial teeth can fit only one tooth, even if it is not only one tooth. Individuals who have lost a few teeth can be implanted with their respective teeth, similarly, those who have lost all teeth can be implanted with artificial teeth. There are three types of dentures fitted. Non-removable method (Acrylic), Permanent fitting method (Crown bridge), and Implant (Implant) fitting in the bone. 

Non-removable methodThese dentures are made of a plastic-like material called acrylic. It is removable by denture wearers. It is made of gum-colored acrylic material with an artificial tooth to match the size of the tooth. This requires the gum to be strong. In this way, artificial teeth will last up to 4-5 years. Sometimes a wire is fitted for retention, and full dentures are also made with this type of teeth. These types of teeth can be removed and cleaned separately and then attached. These artificial teeth will last up to 4-5 years. 

Permanent fitting method These are fitted with the tooth on the side as a guide. One to a few teeth can be made (fit) in this. These are glued to adjacent teeth by the dentist with a glue-like substance. It cannot be removed by a prosthodontist. Looks like natural teeth. This type of denture is made of high types of hard materials like Ceramic and zirconia. It is not suitable for people who have lost all their teeth as it is made with dentures. The teeth other than the missing teeth must be healthy for this to be implanted. Ceramic Zirconia dentures can last up to 10 to 15 years. They are very easy to maintain. These should be protected just like our natural teeth are protected. Brushing your teeth twice a day can keep these teeth safe. Implant methodA screw is placed inside the bone and the tooth is attached to it. These are permanent. A single tooth or multiple teeth can be implanted. A full denture can be done as a complete set of teeth. People with diabetes and heart disease can make decisions about their health. This time it is slightly more expensive ranging from 20,000 to 2,00,000. Proper maintenance is essential. 10 to 15 years of good performance. 

Dental implant placement is easy to do. There is no need to fear about this. Titanium implants are used for this. It does not cause any side effects. After placing the implant, the artificial tooth will be placed on top of it. An implant acts like a root in a tooth. This method does not cause any damage to the adjacent good teeth. It is good to chew well. It can be easily maintained like our teeth. Apart from this, it is mandatory for all those with artificial teeth to visit the dentist once in 6 months. People with artificial teeth should keep their gums and natural teeth very healthy. 

People with dentures should avoid very hard foods. Those teeth should not be used for anything other than chewing. Can chew all kinds of food normally like chapati, murukku, dal, vegetables, etc. Having perfect teeth gives a healthy and beautiful appearance and boosts self-confidence a lot.
