Dental Implants For Older Citizens

The Dentist in Dubai says that older people are susceptible to various diseases, especially neglecting to brush their teeth brushing and flossing regularly over a period of time, as age weakens the teeth.

Periodontal disease, an aggressive form of gum disease, is becoming very common among older citizens, resulting in various other health problems outside of the mouth.

The most common problem with older people is missing teeth due to age, periodontal disease and trauma. Teeth that fall out can create unsightly gaps and infections if a treatment option is not sought.  Dental Implants Dubai provides a permanent solution for missing teeth, that is both convenient and easy to maintain.

Why are Dental implants used for older patients?

Dental implants consist of two parts, a titanium anchor that is surgically implanted within the jawbone and a custom-made porcelain crown that is screwed onto the anchor into position. An experienced Surgeon will place the titanium implant and also provide a customized implant crown for the patient.

Usually older patients have one or more teeth missing, therefore, dental implants can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are also used to support bridges and partial dentures. Implant supported bridges and dentures use multiple anchors to which custom made porcelain dentures are affixed using a bar or stud attachment.

What can Dental Implants do?

Dental implants are a more permanent solution to a person’s missing teeth. Unlike partial or full dentures, dental implants cannot be removed once they are set in place in the gums. Dental implants will look and function just like natural teeth and does not require any  special cleaning or care. A patient who has had Dental Implants will need to brush and floss their teeth like they would do with natural teeth, making this treatment, convenient for older patients who cannot take on additional care routine.

Older citizens should take steps to correct gaps in teeth as soon as possible to avoid any further damage caused by missing teeth. As gaps in the teeth, which exposes the gums are more prone to periodontal disease, which creates mayhem in the mouth due to excess bacteria. Gaps can also make the surrounding teeth to become misaligned and can change the entire dental structure of the mouth.
