A glorious smile can win over a lot of people. But to have such a smile you have to have a glorious set of teeth. Problems with teeth are perennial in nature and can start very early. Parents are always trying to tell their children to brush their teeth regularly so that they do not have any problems in future. But there is nobody to tell adults what to do when they become parents. The result is that people find themselves suffering from all kinds of problem with their teeth. As food particles tend to get lodged between the teeth, rinsing your mouth thoroughly after having food is essential to have good teeth.
Tooth decay and tooth cavity are two very common problems that occur to many persons. The easiest problem is to drill out the decayed portion and fill up the cavity with fillings made from materials that were not easily soluble or those that would not react with the food being taken. The drilling would leave marks on the teeth that can be seen whenever the person speaks or has food. Sometimes the marks would look awkward from which there seemed no respite in sight. The advance in dentistry technology is now helping the cosmetic implant dentist to fill the hole in the teeth with a ceramic composite that has the same color as the color of the teeth.
Another solution to a long-standing problem is the dental implant. This is nothing but an artificial implant usually made from titanium that is fixed on the jawbone through a surgical procedure. Titanium is used in this case because the human body is unable to detect its presence as an external object. The piece of titanium is allowed to fuse with the jawbone so that it can replace the tooth that has been removed. It becomes a support for the other teeth and can be used to replace a full set of upper or lower teeth. At present, the dental implant cost is too prohibitive to be availed by people with ordinary incomes.
Many people complain that they have crooked teeth from their childhood that could not get rectified due to various reasons. These people feel very awkward when they are with other people as they do not want their deformed teeth to be visible to others. The latest solution provided by invisible braces has solved this problem to a great extent for those who can afford it. The modern braces are made from a transparent ceramic that fits on top of the upper and lower teeth. As they are transparent, the original teeth are visible through them but the deformities are hidden from view. Just like dental implants the invisible braces cost too much for ordinary people to use them.
Modern dentistry as evolved into a science that change the status of your teeth completely. Today broken teeth, missing teeth, decayed teeth do not pose any kind of problem as the solutions provided by cosmetic dentistry can solve all of them. But these solutions are available only to people with money and the smile makeover cost has to come down a great deal if the common man has to avail of its benefits.
