New Stem Cell Technology Grows Implant Teeth, Right in Your Mouth - Will Dental Implants Bite the Dust

Tooth loss has a profound impact on the lives of people, it can be disabling as it is usually associated with an elderly population. It's easy to understand why dental implants have become very popular these days. The technology has advanced rapidly in recent years to provide a solution to the aesthetic, functionality and other health issues resulting from missing teeth. Implant dentistry is highly predictable, offers greater flexibility with regards to treatment possibilities, and can give patients fully functional teeth in as short as an hour with minimum discomfort.

Most of us think of dental implants procedures as an advanced futuristic development in dentistry but conventional dental implants are not the ideal solution for replacing missing teeth as the healing process extends from 3-9 months and there is an additional failure rate varying from 5 to 10% depending on patients general health as well as the quantity and quality of the bone in the recipient site. Moreover, dental implants are estimated to last for about 15-20 years.

Despite much advancement in implant technology conventional titanium implants do not provide a long-lasting solution for a missing tooth. However the answer could lie in a highly researched new dental technique - stem cell dental implants which could well be the promising future of implant dentistry.

The recent discovery that stem cells exist in teeth has the potential to transform dentistry and the future of medical treatments. Researchers use stem cells to create living dental implants. Further technological advancements could possibly become more common worldwide, perhaps in few years' time, Titanium implants could be a thing of the past and stem cell dental implants may become the most prominent tooth replacement option. It is likely that this knowledge will enable all cosmetic dentists to regenerate missing teeth within the patients' mouth as an alternative to Conventional dental implants that have involved placing a screw in the jaw, which is attached to a "post" with a porcelain replacement tooth.

Stem Cell grafting is the latest technology in helping bone to grow in deficient parts of the jaw. The stem cells used are derived from tissues originating from the tip of the removed tooth root, called root apical papilla. These stem cells have the capability to reproduce and develop other tissue such as bone, cartilage and skin. Stem cells are collected by needle aspiration from the hipbone and placed against the receiving site in the jawbone. This technology means people previously unable to have implants - or who could have them only after lengthy surgeries - can now be given "new" teeth -a fully formed replacement tooth in less than nine weeks from initial implantation. Unlike current dental implants, these teeth adapt to changes that occur to the jaw bone over time, limiting the need for costly and time consuming adjustments or replacement implants.

New developments in stem cell research are presented almost every day, just as new ground is being made with dental implant procedures in dentistry, and using these advances researchers are able to extract stem cells from wisdom teeth which are then banked and used to preserve and protect patient's teeth / smile in a special cryogenic storage facility.

There are currently several on-going researches trying to improve these techniques and develop more cost-effective stem cell procedures. Stem cell implant technology is in its beginning and is currently not an option for replacing missing teeth. Conventional techniques of implant dentistry are not likely to soon disappear as it could be many years until this new dental expertise becomes commercially available. For the time being, conventional dental implants will remain the most cost - effective tooth replacement option.

Regular Dental X-rays … Who Needs Them?

Dental x-rays are pictures of the internal structure of your teeth and bones. X-rays are a form of energy that moves in waves. When theses waves travel through solid objects such as your teeth, the waves are either absorbed or pass through the object.  As our teeth and the surrounding hard tissues are dense, so they absorb x-rays. Conversely because the gums are less dense, so x-rays continue to pass through them. This phenomenon results in such pictures that allows your dentist interpret the changes into several different diagnosis, which could help preventing any future dental problems such as tooth decay , cysts, abscesses, bone loss through gum disease, trauma, fractures, Bone infections or abnormalities, and detection of impacted teeth. There are currently three different types of dental x-rays commonly used for an oral examination, the frequency and the indication of these dental radiographs depends on the individual circumstances.

Dental Hygienist Appointment in Preston , More Than just A Scale and Polish

The common “dental hygiene” or hygienist appointment gets no respect! Many patients view their preventive dental cleaning as “just a cleaning or a polish”, but healthy gums are critical to long term oral health. Gums that bleed during brushing or flossing are inflamed, a condition known as gingivitis.
Dental Hygienists and therapist are the best, and most under-appreciated, secret in dentistry: Their job is to ensure you never need to see your dentist for anything more than a friendly check-up. If a dentist focuses on diagnosis and treatment of a dental disease, the hygienist and the therapist focus on prevention.
Good home oral hygiene habits combined with regular preventive dental care is your best defence against gingivitis and periodontal disease. Your dentist and dental hygienist work together to recommend a preventive periodontal care program that is right for you.
A vast majority of teeth are lost due to the effects of gum disease and research has shown that early diagnosis an…

A dental implant is a specially engineered, titanium tooth root that occupies the space in your mouth where your natural tooth used to exist. This implant creates a permanent space for a replacement tooth, as well as stabilises the jawbone so that bone density is maintained, and bone loss is prevented.
