Dental implants ‘are the best thing aside from real teeth’


Dental implants are almost as good as real chompers. A dentist has recommended dental implants as the closest thing patients can get to real teeth.

Dr John Miller told the Dothan Eagle that for a long time, dentures were the only option available for those who lost their natural teeth, even though they have to be removed at night and can come loose.

However, he pointed out that these days, dental implants are a much better alternative because they look and feel real, as well as being permanently anchored to prevent clicking and movement.

Furthermore, they can return chewing efficiency to 100 per cent.

"It's the closest thing to natural teeth you can get, Dr Miller commented.

Dental implants could have helped in an incident reported by Glastonbury People earlier this week, which saw a local man appealing for the return of his dentures after losing them on a trip out.

He was hoping to get them back before Christmas Day, but his misfortune could have been avoided if his teeth were fixed in place.

Recover more quickly from dental implants with dentist’s top tips


A dentist has said it is easy to recover from dental implants. A dentist has offered some top tips on how best to recover after undergoing dental implants.

Dr Tim Miller, who runs a practice in San Rafael in the US, said this treatment has a very high success rate, but there are some things you can do to make yourself more comfortable afterwards.

He recommended keeping an ice pack on the affected area right after the dental implants, swapping this for a heat pack after 48 hours.

Painkillers may help if there is significant discomfort, while mouth rinses are a must to get rid of bacteria, Dr Miller said.

Resting with the head elevated straight after the procedure may help the patient to get a good night’s sleep.

In the long-term, brushing and flossing may be resumed to keep the implants in good condition, the expert concluded.

Last month, Emily Cheeseman from Kent told the Daily Mail dental implants had helped her to get her smile back after years of suffering from a condition called hypodontia.

Dentists ‘help fix bad breath’


Bad breath is a problem that dentists could help solve.

Dental professionals could help people tackle any problems they have with halitosis, it has been claimed.

US dentist Dr Joel Miller of Aesthetic Dentistry of Valencia told his local publication that there are a number of options available to help address this issue, including a number of mouth washes, as it can be a touchy issue for many.

Dr Miller told Homestation News: “Sometimes their spouse or boyfriend or girlfriend will push them to take are of it.”

However, he noted that there is no replacement for having a regular oral health routine in place to ensure any food debris is removed from the mouth daily.

Elsewhere, Irwin Smigel, creator of Supersmile, recently told the Daily Beauty Reporter blog from Allure that some of the most important ways to keep teeth healthy and bright are to brush regularly and to consume the recommended eight glasses of water every day.

How can I care for my new dental implants?


Brush your teeth to look after dental implantsFlossing, avoiding certain foods and getting routine check ups are just some of the things people can do to look after their dental implants.

This is according to Dr Tim Miller from Caring Dentistry of San Rafael who explained it is up to the individual to care for them once they have been put in.

He said: "The general maintenance of dental implants is fairly simple – just treat them like your original teeth."

Because it may not be possible to brush properly after the cosmetic dentistry procedure, Dr Miller recommended patients use a mouth wash to clean enamel, tongue and gums.

Once healed, it is important to use toothpaste, floss as normal and brush twice a day.

People should also avoid hard, sticky foods and stay clear of grinding their gnashers, as this can damage them to the point where they need replacing.

Finally, Dr Miller advised patients to go for regular checkups with their oral health professional.

Another reason to make sure teeth are brushed properly every day was recently highlighted on the San Diego News Network.
