What are Some Common Dental Problems?

Missing teeth can have different causes. Common causes of missing teeth may be caused by early dental caries or accidents. At present, most middle-aged and elderly patients affect dental health and aesthetic crown. Dental restorations should be provided for middle-aged and elderly patients. The most common phenomenon is the lack of teeth on the upper side. The missing teeth are usually incisors, premolars and third molars.

Missing teeth can have different causes. Common
This can cause many problems. The most common teeth that cannot be grown by piezoresistance are the upper canine, premolar, and
Part of the molar is missing, which can cause the teeth to grow crooked into the missing tooth gap, and also cause poor occlusion, resulting in tooth wear and facial muscle disorders.
If you find it missing
1. Let the denture reasonably assume the chewing function. Prevent excessive stress. Because each person's bone quality, physical health and other factors are different. Dentures can chew foods with different hardness and toughness. Which foods cannot be chewed (such as bones, hard beans, jerky, etc.)? Patients should follow the doctor's advice, and at the same time gradually find out foods suitable for dentures. One of the key points of denture care is to maximize the effectiveness of the denture.
2. Do daily cleaning of oral cavity and denture. Poor oral hygiene can easily cause peri-implantitis. In addition to insisting on brushing your teeth once every morning and evening and mouthwashing after meals, the care of dentures should also pay special attention to the hygiene of the dentures. The key part of cleaning is the neck and surrounding gum tissue of the dentures. Tooth brushing should be a toothbrush with moderate soft and hard bristles and rounded ends. The use of toothpaste and warm water containing soft friction agents is also the main point of denture care.
3. Regular review and medical care. It is not enough to brush the teeth only after brushing correctly. You also need to regularly visit the hospital to clean the dentures and natural teeth. Generally, you need to go to the specialist hospital every six months to clean and remove the plaque that cannot be removed by regular brushing. And stones. At the same time, please also ask the doctor to regularly check whether the connecting part of the denture is loose, whether the occlusion of the denture and the natural tooth is inconsistent. If an abnormality is found? The doctor can correct the main points of the denture in time.
4. Wash your mouth frequently. Oral hygiene should be maintained at all times, and mouthwash should be done immediately after eating. A mouthwash can wash out loosely adhered soft dirt and temporarily reduce the number of microorganisms in the mouth.
5. Brush your teeth frequently. Brushing your teeth is one of the most effective methods for dental hygiene maintenance. The toothbrush should be a toothbrush with soft bristles and round ends. The toothpaste used should be soft friction. When cleaning the surroundings of the implant foundation, the movement should be gentle to avoid direct toothbrush stimulation and damage to the surrounding soft tissue.
6. Avoid eating hard food. Denture in
Dental implants are not really planted with natural teeth, but through medical methods, pure titanium metal with high compatibility with human bones is precisely designed into a shape similar to the root of a tooth, and implanted in a small surgical manner. In the alveolar bone of the dental area, after 1 to 3 months, after the artificial tooth root is in close contact with the alveolar bone, a porcelain crown is made on the artificial tooth root. Loose or missing teeth first have a great impact on the image. In addition, dietary problems caused by missing teeth can also have adverse effects on the digestive system, especially in the elderly, which requires special attention. After dental implants are prepared, they are almost the same in function and appearance as natural teeth, so they are sought after by many patients.
After a tooth is missing, it is often not easy to brush the side where the missing tooth is in contact with the adjacent tooth when brushing. The long-term accumulation of soft dirt may easily cause tooth decay or periodontal disease in the adjacent tooth. Missing teeth after tooth loss may also cause adjacent or opposite teeth to tilt or shift, and in severe cases, occlusal relations may be disturbed. Therefore, it is necessary to insert teeth in time after the tooth is missing. However, people's understanding of dental implants in life often has the following three misunderstandings:

Missing tooth one

Do nt worry about setting the teeth, it s not too late to set them in a few years
When there is a missing tooth, the adjacent teeth of the missing tooth will lose control and gradually tilt or shift to the gap of the missing tooth; the jaw tooth of the missing tooth will gradually move to the missing tooth site due to the loss of occlusion Too long, eventually the gap between the missing teeth gradually becomes smaller.
Inclined adjacent teeth and too long jaw teeth will increase the difficulty of dental implantation. In some cases, it is necessary to reduce the length of the maxillary teeth after the nerves have been shortened before they can be inserted, and sometimes the conditions of the teeth are even completely lost. The longer a tooth is missing, the more likely it is that this will happen. In some cases, the missing teeth for a long period of time may also cause the teeth of the entire dentition to be displaced, resulting in occlusal disorders or diseases of the temporomandibular joint.
The best time for dental implantation is 3 months after tooth loss. After the tooth is missing, the alveolar bone has a gradual absorption process. At 3 months, the absorption of alveolar bone has stabilized; within 3 months, temporary dentures can be installed if necessary.

Missing tooth 2

Can eat without the toothless side
Long-term chewing using only one side of the teeth will cause muscle development on this side, while muscles and jaw bones on the side of missing teeth will atrophy due to long-term non-use and lack of stimulation. This will cause asymmetry of the face and seriously affect the appearance. In addition, long-term use of chewing on one side of the teeth may also cause occlusal disturbances and temporomandibular joint disease. Long-term overburden of unilateral teeth may easily cause periodontal disease.

Missing tooth three

Wait until all teeth are gone, and then fill with dentures
When there are still teeth in the mouth, the embedded dentures are called partial dentures; when all the teeth are missing, the embedded dentures are called full dentures, which is a mouthful of dentures that people often say. Wearing full dentures is prone to the disadvantage of insufficient retention force, that is, the denture cannot be stably located on the gum, especially the lower jaw. If there are still some real teeth in the mouth, they can be used to strengthen the retention of the dentures. In addition, if the patient has never worn dentures before, wearing full dentures directly may not be easy to adapt. Starting with wearing partial dentures and gradually transitioning to full dentures is relatively easy to adapt.
