Problems with dental implants

Dental implants are important techniques for many doctors, especially in complex or somewhat difficult cases or those suffering from chronic health problems, but some problems may arise after fixing the implants that are necessary to take into account so as not to occur and no complications arise from them, and these problems can be summarized in the following points:

  • Appearance of decay signs under the prosthesis: Dental prostheses need special attention and extreme care in order to preserve them from infection or damage, and they should be cleaned with special cleaning tools and placed in specific medical solutions in order to preserve the surrounding teeth and gums from any bacteria or infection so that no complications occur, including decay and the emergence of foul odors, and it is possible to treat them by resorting to dental implantation, which requires many procedures and high material costs and does not suit all cases, but requires the availability of high bone density.
  • Bad appearance of teeth: Dental prostheses are not similar in color, shape and gum line to natural teeth, which causes a negative psychological effect on the patient, and the way of treatment is to cut the gums or bleach the teeth in order to unify the color, and many doctors recommend choosing a good type of prostheses in order for them to continue for a period with the patient.
  • Prostheses with inconsistent measurements with the patient’s teeth: One of the most common problems is the poor choice of the appropriate prosthesis for the patient’s tooth measurements, which causes pain and the inability of the jaws to close on each other, and signs of gum sensitivity and jaw joint pain appear, and the optimal treatment for it is to make modifications to it or replace it.
  • Nerve sensitivity: Dental prostheses require cooling their surface and removing part of the enamel layer covering them, and this step causes irritation to the nerve of the affected teeth accompanied by a feeling of pain, which may not require treatment and disappears on its own in many cases, but there are some cases that suffer from its persistence and in this case the situation requires going to the treating doctor immediately in order to identify the problem and control it as soon as possible by means of various available treatments.
  • Non-leveling of the prosthesis surface with the teeth: It is possible that the prosthesis end is not leveled with the surface level of the teeth and there are protrusions from it, which causes gum irritation, and on the contrary, if the prosthesis does not completely fill the gap resulting from tooth extraction, its short length may lead to signs of tooth sensitivity to cold and hot drinks and foods.
  • Tooth sensitivity: Tooth sensitivity problems are usually transient, appearing for a few days and disappearing on their own without receiving any treatment. We are careful to use high quality materials to coat the teeth to ensure durability and strength at The Dental Center.

Types of dental prostheses

Dental prosthesis is an artificial replacement for damaged natural teeth or those that have lost part of their structure. These prostheses are crowns or dentures that fill the gaps resulting from tooth loss or compensate for the missing part. Dental prostheses are divided into two types:

  • Fixed dental prostheses: These are prostheses that are fixed in the clinic or center by the treating physician and the patient cannot remove them afterwards; Because they are fixed with adhesive materials on the tooth surface after cooling part of the enamel layer covering them, and they are of two types: crowns made of metal, usually gold and silver, or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns that coat the metal with a layer of porcelain.
  • Removable dental prostheses: These are bridges that replace the gap resulting from missing or extracted teeth. These prostheses are characterized by the ability to install and remove them at any time and anywhere by the patient, unlike the other fixed type, which benefits the patient in many ways. There are two types of these prostheses: partial removable prostheses and complete removable prostheses.

Causes of dental prostheses

There are many reasons that may cause patients and doctors to resort to dental prostheses, and the health problems that can be solved by prostheses may include:

  • Filling the gap resulting from tooth extraction.
  • Maintaining weak teeth prone to falling.
  • Replacing broken teeth.
  • Preserving fillings from falling out or cracks in their structure or damage.
  • Hiding various dental imperfections such as staining their surface with yellow, gray or white spots.
  • Keeping the teeth symmetrical and the jaws closing on each other properly.

How to install dental prostheses

There are some steps that many doctors follow when installing dental prostheses for patients, and these procedures may increase or decrease based on the patient’s condition and medical history, and the steps can be listed as follows:

  • Medical examination of the patient’s teeth and using x-rays to determine the detailed condition of the patient’s mouth.
  • Preparing the teeth and mouth in order to fix the prostheses, such as extracting damaged teeth before replacing them with artificial ones, or treating gum inflammation and other possible mouth diseases.
  • Giving the patient local anesthesia or injecting the gums with anesthetic.
  • Implanting a titanium implant in the affected jaw cavity in the anterior direction of the mouth.
  • Adding a pillar made of different raw materials such as gold to the implant using a medical screw.
  • Adding a ceramic or metal crown to the implant and medical screw until the artificial teeth resemble natural teeth.
  • There are consecutive medical sessions in order to fix complete dental prostheses, and these sessions may last for 6 months if the upper jaw is damaged, while the lower jaw takes only 5 months, and there are cases that may take longer, especially cases that need an increase in jaw bone density, which may take a year.

Disadvantages of dental prostheses

Dental prostheses are one of the most beneficial treatment techniques that have many advantages that can positively affect the patient’s health, but they also have some disadvantages that may appear in some patients, which may be one of the following points:

  • Infection.
  • Bleeding during implantation of the implant in the jaw cavity.
  • Failure of the implant to heal with the bones of the oral cavity after a period of implantation, and in this case the patient may suffer a lot as a result of the doctor’s reluctance to remove the implant and wait for a period until the wound heals, then try installing an implant of a different type after a while.
  • Titanium prostheses cause some health problems for patients as a result of the immune system’s violent reaction to them, which forces the doctor to remove them.

Pain after dental prosthesis

Dental prosthesis is a painless treatment, but some mild pain may appear afterwards, which lasts for a few days then disappears on its own with the painkillers and medicines prescribed by the doctor after installation in order to protect the prostheses from the immune response to them. However, if the pain persists, you should go to the treating doctor in order to find out the cause of the problem, which is likely to be inflammation, fracture of the prosthesis and teeth, or gum bleeding, which requires urgent intervention to prevent any complications.
