Consequences of the loss of incisors
Cause serious aesthetic issues: Loss of incisors causes aesthetic loss, making people with broken teeth feel inferior in communication, reducing the quality of life.
Limit your chewing ability: Your incisors play an essential role in perceiving the softness and hardness of food. If broken, the ability to perform this function will be more difficult, and the patient will be easily affected by digestion problems and absorption of nutrients.
Limit your ability to pronounce: The loss of incisors affects pronunciation by reducing or losing the teeth-lips-tongue relationship, making the patient's pronunciation lisp.
Increase diseases and possibly affect neighboring teeth: After a period of broken incisors, if there is no timely treatment, the tooth tissue will gradually deteriorate due to the growth and attack of bacteria. Over time, the tooth structure is severely damaged, leading to the risk of completely damaged teeth, even losing teeth.
The most effective ways to restore the incisors
1. Porcelain crowns
Applicable cases: The rest of the tooth tissue can be restored, regenerated, and still functional.
How to do:
- Step 1: The doctor will clean, prepare, and restore the remaining teeth, performing a root canal if necessary.
- Step 2: A porcelain crown is designed and crafted based on the patient's real tooth condition, which comprehensively restores the damaged tooth.
Benefits: Solving the patient's tooth loss, bringing cosmetic results and quick rehabilitation, helping the patient save costs.
2. Porcelain bridge
Applicable cases: This is the recommended solution for the patient who had to remove the damaged teeth causing the remaining teeth to become too few, not enough to make pillars for the porcelain crown.
How to do:
- Step 1: The doctor will proceed to remove the remaining root portion of the patient.
- Step 2: Proceed to prepare the neighboring teeth to keep the porcelain bridge.
- Step 3: A porcelain bridge is designed and manipulated based on dental condition, pillar, the harmony between aesthetic requirements and functions of the patient and doctor.
Benefit: Solving the patient's tooth loss, bringing cosmetic results and quick rehabilitation, helping the patient save costs.
3. Dental implants
Applicable cases: This is the recommended solution for the patient who had to remove the damaged teeth causing the remaining teeth to become too few, not enough to make pillars for the porcelain crown; or the case when the patient does not want to intervene with neighboring teeth to make a porcelain bridge.
How to do: To perform this method, the patient will have an implant inserted into the jawbone. This implant is responsible for replacing lost tooth roots to provide a comprehensive and long-lasting restoration. After Osseointegration, the doctor will restore the porcelain crown on the implant, restore the aesthetics and chewing function of the original healthy teeth.
Benefits: Not only restoring aesthetics and function but dental implant also gives the patient a comprehensive result.
