San Antonio TX Dental Implants
Before the development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures. Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant.
For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. Implants are so well-designed, they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of titanium. In general, good candidates who have dental implants can expect high success rates with the procedure. The procedure can take several visits. During the first visit, an anchor is placed into the jawbone and the site is allowed to heal for several weeks or months. This gives your tissue time to grow around the anchor to more firmly hold it in place.

Picking a Mouthwash
Mouthwash can not only freshen your breath, but kill germs and bacteria that lead to cavities. Try to select a formula with fluoride. Many contain alcohol, which dries up the protective saliva in your mouth, so it’s best avoided. While mouthwash a wonderful dental product, however, please remember that it cannot replace regular flossing and brushing. Remember, your dental health is our first concern.
Adults Get More Cavities Than Kids
Modern dentistry, with the help of fluoride, sealants, and preventive care, has exponentially reduced tooth decay in kids. However, there’s been an increase in decay in the older population. Some medicines dry out your mouth, for example, reducing salvia. Saliva is vital in combatting tooth decay because it assists in neutralizing acids, washes away bacteria, has a disinfectant quality and helps prevent food from sticking to your teeth.
Picking a Dental Floss
If you have a fixed bridge in your mouth, there are nifty little floss threaders allow you to thread the floss between your teeth, under your bridge work. If you find traditional thread-like floss is tearing up your gums, try dental ribbon, its smoother counterpart.
Dental flossers are usually regarded as being easier to manage than conventional floss. It’s amazing how much variety you can find in dental floss. With old-fashioned floss, you just tear off a piece at least 18 inches and wrap it around an index finger. There’s no need to wrap any excess thread around your fingers, which some find uncomfortable.
