Before the procedure:

Before the dental implant procedure your dentist is expected to teach you the basic skills of proper hygiene and oral care, as well as for dental implants. A complete dental hygiene treatment such as a hygiene treatment, is carried out before the implant procedure begins. It is vital to avoid growth of microorganisms to preserve the life of dental implants, which is why, along with mechanical methods, the use of antimicrobial drug therapy, is done.

Implant supported dentures are special types of prostheses which depend upon dental implants for their retention and stability. The best thing about implant supported dentures is that they combine both the qualities of dental implants and removable dentures.

What is a crown?

Many people are declining recommendation of any kind of dental treatment due to the fact that they are afraid of undergoing painful procedures. But dentistry has come a long way, and over the last few years, there have been many dental procedures that are being done painlessly. There are new ways to provide patients with relatively painless treatment.

The most common dental problem that occurs is the decay of teeth. As there is no pain on the onset of dental decay, most people neglect to get it corrected and slowly the problem aggravates. The decay becomes more pronounced and causes fracture of the tooth structure or just deepens and leads to the pulp of the tooth getting exposed and infected. A root canal treatment is then required.

To help you decide on which treatment is best for you, you need to understand the differences between them and the advantages as well as the disadvantages of each solution.

What Is Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift is surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It's sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the artificial bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or "lifted." A sinus lift usually is done by specialists who are referred to as oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
