The Effects of Alcohol on Dental Implants

A little bit of alcohol can be good for your oral health: alcohol disinfects the mouth and kills all bacteria it comes into contact with, red wine can boost the blood vessels in your mouth and lead to more active immune responses in the mouth, and it can reduce swelling and thin your blood as well. Excessive drinking, however, will cause problems, and a life of alcoholism will lead to tooth loss, gum disease, tooth decay and dental implant failure. If you have dental implants do not drink with any sort of regularity, as this will cause alcohol induced dental implant failure.

Gum Recession With Dental Implants

Receding gums are bad news. Whether caused by periodontitis, lifestyle choices such as smoking and alcoholism, or just a dryness of the mouth, it endangers the health of your teeth by exposing the cementum - which is prone to decay and lacks enamel - to the open air. It is also a problem for dental implants, whether you are thinking of getting some or already have a few, as the tiny titanium screws can become exposed and fail. Here is what you need to know if you have receding gums.

Peri-implantitis, the ticking time bomb

Dental implants are the only way to replace an entire missing tooth, with all of its parts, including the tooth root. This is important because only if the entire tooth is replaced can the condition of tooth loss be stopped otherwise, if there is no tooth root, the alveolus starts to disintegrate, leading to a loosening of the rest of your teeth as well. But dental implants are not altogether free from negative side effects either. Just recently, an unfavourable aspect has been uncovered, and it’s called peri-implantitis.

Why Can’t I Get Dental Implants If I Have Diabetes?

Dental implants are the only way to properly replace a missing tooth, that is, to replace all and every single part of the tooth. Unfortunately, certain pre-existing medical conditions - almost always chronic health problems - make it impossible, or unadvisable to undergo dental implantation. Some of these are straightforward and can be understood at once: problems of the bones like osteoporosis that make it impossible, or haemophilia, where the blood just keeps coming are in this category. But some conditions are not intuitive at all, and diabetes is one of them. It is unadvisable to get dental implants if you have diabetes. But why?

Dental Implants In The Long Run

Dental implants are known as a permanent solution to the problem of tooth loss. They are known to stay good for a decade or so after placement and are the only known method of tooth replacement that stops tooth loss as a condition from getting worse, and replaces every aspect of the tooth, both functionally and aesthetically. But is it really a permanent solution? How will the same dental implant look in twenty years, for example? What can go wrong over time? This article seeks to explain a little about the expected life of dental implants, how long they should last and how to care for them to get the most out of them.
