Enjoy quality of life in all ways.

Living a balanced and healthy life means living a long life, but with one major difference: living with quality is what is most important. With every passing day more people are seeking quality of life, and a balanced diet and regular exercise are what count most towards staying healthy. However, it is also important to pay attention to your oral health, because your mouth is where nutrition begins.


In the past, people just had to accept the natural appearance of their teeth. But now, thanks to cosmetic dentistry solutions and dental implants, anyone who is worried about their smile, and not just visually, but also in health terms, has a number of dental solutions open to them.

DENTAL IMPLANTS AND QUALITY OF LIFE

More than 30 years ago dentistry developed a way to replace the root of the tooth with an implant. For many people this can mean social reintegration and quality of life. Many patients’ faces are lit up with a broad smile when they decide to have an implant, because it means so much more than just recovering the physiological masticatory function, supporting diction and improving digestion. It also means enhancing their self-esteem.


That is why, Zinedent has been working to bring simple, efficient and affordable solutions to the market, because we know that, for many, receiving an implant is about more than health, it is about putting joy back in their lives.

I’ve lost a tooth, now what?

Many factors may contribute towards losing a tooth, such as trauma (accident), tooth decay, habits, diet, periodontal diseases, congenital absence (born without the tooth) or a lack of oral hygiene. But the reality is that, whatever the reason, the tooth has to be replaced for both aesthetic and functional reasons.


The teeth naturally receive the force of chewing and, in their absence, the bone ceases to receive stimulation, causing its resorption in height and length. Initially, it may not seem all that serious to leave the tooth’s space unfilled, but, as time passes, major changes can take place.

But the reality is that, whatever the reason, the tooth has to be replaced for both aesthetic and functional reasons. In healthy teeth, the root transmits the force of chewing to the alveolar bone. The teeth remain stable and there are no great changes. But when we lose a tooth, beyond compromising the stability of the adjacent teeth, a process of bone loss begins, called resorption.


The teeth naturally receive the force of chewing and, in their absence, the bone ceases to receive stimulation, causing its resorption in height and length. Initially, it may not seem all that serious to leave the tooth’s space unfilled, but, as time passes, major changes can take place.

Initially, it may not seem all that serious to leave the tooth’s space unfilled, but, as time passes, major changes can take place.

Possible changes caused by the loss of teeth.

  1. Esthetic changes caused by the change to the facial contours due to the lack of support.
  2. Occupation of the space left by the missing tooth by the adjacent and opposing teeth, which shift to fill the empty space.
  3. If the missing tooth is from the front of the mouth, this affects the smile and, potentially, self-confidence.
  4. Difficulties speaking and chewing and, as a result, possible digestion and health problems, generally due to incorrect chewing.
What is a dental implant?

Dental implants naturally rehabilitate masticatory function and appearance Dental implants are devices made of titanium used to replace the root of the tooth and give support to a prosthesis, thus contributing to improved physical appearance and masticatory function. They are suitable for patients who have lost one, several or all of their teeth.

A major advantage of the use of prostheses on implants is the fact that they do not move around in the mouth when eating or speaking. This certainty provides a more natural and comfortable result than bridges or conventional dentures, thus improving well-being and your quality of life.

What are the treatment options?


There are several sorts of treatment available to restore or replace teeth, depending on your clinical circumstances. One or more of the treatment options may be suitable in your case. Consult your dental professional to determine your treatment plan.

TREATMENT WITH IMPLANT

Placing an implant

  • Conversation of the adjacent natural teeth
  • Preservation of the bone structure
I lost several teeth
TREATMENT WITH IMPLANT

Placement of implants with fixed prosthesis

  • Preservation of the bone structure and palate
  • Teeth look more natural Maintaining quality of chewing
CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT

Fixed Bridge

  • Wearing of the adjacent teeth supporting the bridge
  • Bone resorption in the edentulous area
CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT

Treatment with removable partial prosthesis (PPR)

  • RPPs require support from other teeth and edentulous oral gum
  • Discomfort caused by movement of prosthesis
  • Possible prosthetic instability Possible changes to the palate
I lost all my teeth
TREATMENT WITH IMPLANT

Full protocol with implants

  • Preservation of the bone structure and palate
  • Maintaining quality of chewing
  • The prosthesis will be fixed and anchored on implants
 
CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT

To make it easier to understand the stages involved in implant treatment, let us break it down into five steps. All of the steps require the support and work of your dental professional.

FIVE STEPS TO IMPLANT TREATMENT

Restoration
Once scarring is complete, your dental professional will assess the best way to restore your tooth. This depends on the anatomical characteristics of the bone bed, where the implant will be placed. The tooth may be restored on the day of surgery (immediate loading) or after a period of bone regeneration. This stage requires modeling and the production of a model of your mouth, so the laboratory can create your prosthesis. To guarantee success, it may be necessary to conduct one or more trials before finalizing the treatment.
After-care
Implant treatment does not end when the prosthesis is placed. It is very important to follow your dental professional instructions on cleaning as well as attending all of the check-ups. This is the only way to ensure your implant treatment is durable over the long term.
