It is because dentists have recognized the danger of rotten infected teeth that they often today choose to treat dental infections with antibiotics. Sometimes a tooth can be saved with a simple filling, but if the enamel and the crown of the tooth are both badly worn down and broken, then a filling may not be possible. Eventually, if the periodontal disease is very severe, a crowned tooth may not last.
Although people think of dental work as largely cosmetic, it is more complex than that.
Why not dentures?
If you wear dentures you can struggle to chew certain foods. With dentures, you also have to worry about whether or not they are stuck in firmly so you have to buy and use denture adhesive.
People who wear dentures often complain of having a dry mouth and worry that their dentures might fall out in front of people which would be embarrassing.
Dental Implants in Turkey
There are clinics in Turkey which regularly perform dental implant procedures for patients. Dental implants are stronger, but how easy it is to do will very much depend on the state of the patient’s tissues.
Implant surgery is the closest to restoring function, besides giving you a nice natural smile back, and it really does help you to function better.
There are also a variety of different types of implants that are available that a patient can choose from. You can get titanium implants that are fixed right into the bone just like a natural tooth root would be which is far better than having a denture that can come loose and is hard to eat with.
There are many good reasons for choosing to have implants; click here for more information about the Vera Clinic.
