Tooth Loss and Dental Damage Reparation
Given how important our smiles are to us for our body image and our views of beauty, we understand how tooth loss can easily damage the image we have in our minds of what our smiles should look like. Unsightly gaps between teeth or where teeth have once been can be extremely dissatisfying to many people.
Dental implants Glasgow are a way around this problem, but it should be noted that we should always aim to prevent the need for implants where we can. Simple changes to your lifestyle, or simply realising where you need to improve your daily regime, can be the difference between losing a tooth and keeping it.
The Most Common Causes of Dental Problems
Everybody can be subjected to issues arising from their teeth depending upon the treatment of their teeth throughout life. As long as you take great care in the general maintenance of your teeth you should not happen across the majority of these issues. However, tooth loss and dental damage can arise at any point, so it is best to avoid getting into the habit of making the following practices a regularity in your routine.
- Bad Dental Hygiene
- Irregular Dental Check-Ups
- Failed Root Canal Treatment
- Poor Diet
- Underlying Health Issues
Your dentist may tell you that you are currently at risk of developing a periodontal disease. These are identified usually by inflammation of the gums due to long term plaque exposure. Without regularly cleaning your mouth of plaque, you can often find yourself in the difficult position of requiring treatment. A visit to your dentist is a more efficient way of removing any build-up of tartar particularly where teeth meet the gums – a troublesome area that often develops the most tartar – that will leave you will less bacteria that can irritate your gums.
There are two main types of periodontal disease that both relate to one another, with one being milder and the other being a more advanced, aggravated stage:
The initial and less harmful stage of gum disease is gingivitis. This stage of gum disease is entirely treatable and is easily gotten rid of with daily care and attention to a regulated dental regime throughout the day. It is not as harmful as the advanced stages, showing mostly irritation in the gums and the potential for the gums to bleed more easily than normal. Gums can often recede and are painful to the touch, making brushing and flossing a more difficult task.
It is possible for the symptoms to be reversed if you are willing to keep track of a new daily regime to keep your teeth and mouth clean. Medicated mouthwashes can also be beneficial for early treatment to stop progression into periodontitis.
The advanced stage of gingivitis that is the most common reason for tooth loss and the reason why many of our patients require dental implants in Glasgow. The symptoms can include bleeding gums, milky white plaque gatherings around and between the teeth, unusual odour from the mouth, red and swollen gums, and gums that have receded enough to show the root of the tooth. In the worst cases, periodontitis can eventually weaken tooth roots and the bone in your jaw, leading to inevitable tooth loss that cannot be naturally repaired. There are medications available to help treat periodontitis as it is a more advanced disease. These can usually be prescribed by your dentist or your doctor depending on where you are checked for the developments in your mouth.
Never let any irregularities in your mouth go unchecked as it could lead to tooth loss, decay, and weakening of the jaw bone if they are stages of periodontitis. The following table shows the current range of medical products offered to people who have been affected by gum disease, showing the different areas which can be treated depending upon severity.
Prevention is the Best Cure
Don’t get caught out by gum disease and the troubles it can cause for your dental health as a whole. A dental implant Glasgow is often needed because of the negative effects of a lack of dental care throughout a lifetime or neglect. It is important to know what happens to your teeth during your usual working day in order to ensure that you take the correct steps to prevent the long-lasting damage that we often see here at The Berkeley Clinic.
· Daily Brushing, Flossing and Mouthwash Use
· Regular Dentist Visits
· Chew Sugar-free Gum Between Meals
· Medicated Mouthwash
· Quit Smoking and Drinking
· Change Your Diet
Dental Implants in Glasgow from The Berkeley Clinic
Sometimes, prevention just isn’t enough, and we find ourselves looking for solutions for tooth loss, decay, and other problems that change how our smiles look. Aesthetic treatments are always available for patients who require them, and we will always be open to appointments to see what we can do to make your smile the best it can be. Dental implants can be a permanent solution that goes above and beyond other dental replacement treatments. So, what are the basics of dental implants Glasgow, and why should you think about investing in using them as your priority source of treatment?
Most Common Reasons for Getting Dental Implants in Glasgow
There are a number of reasons as to the most common applications of dental implants in Scotland. As implants are one of the best, and most permanent, tooth replacement solutions available from The Berkeley Clinic in Glasgow. The most common reasons for dental implants Glasgow treatments usually are as follows:
· Gum Disease
· Missing Teeth
· Decay and Discolouration
· Replace Dentures
· Difficulty Eating
· Bone Deterioration
· Facial Reconstruction
· Immediate Treatment Required
Free Space Can Have Negative Effects on Your Teeth
There are a lot of options out there for you to take if you are missing a tooth. It is your own choice whether you would like to invest in dental implants or not – though we highly recommend them.
Even missing one tooth can actually have negative impacts on the rest of your mouth, not just on the blank space. Filling up the gap with an extra tooth is a fantastic aesthetic treatment, especially at the front of the mouth when we are talking and smiling, but what else does a dental implant Glasgow prevent from happening in your mouth?
· Additional Pressure on Teeth
Your teeth are collectively taking the same amount of pressure in your mouth when all spaces are taken up. When a tooth is missing, there is one less tooth to take the usual amount of pressure, so teeth are forced to take on a little more pressure than normal. If more than one tooth is missing, this amount continues to increase, and this can eventually lead to damage to the remaining teeth including fissures and cracking. Fixing broken teeth could be a preventable procedure if dental implants are given a chance.
· More Prone to Cavities
It is known that if there are spaces between teeth, the surface area of the surrounding teeth drastically increases. With more surface area for plaque to cover, the risk of decay to your teeth increases. More plaque, more decay, means you will be far more prone to cavities in the surrounding teeth around the left over gap. Ignoring cavities can have a lasting effect on your teeth if you do not have them filled and treated.
Cavities in the teeth can lead to longer-lasting problems for your teeth. Cavities, if left without treatment, can often form a dental abscess. You may then need to have treatment in the form of a root canal. The breakdown of dentine through to the root can be painful, so if you experience any pain in your tooth, contact your dentist for an appointment and use painkillers until you can be given treatment.
· Periodontal Disease More Likely
An exposed area of your gums can, unfortunately, make you become more prone to various forms of gum disease. With a chance for more plaque to build up on more surfaces around and on your gums, you are incredibly more likely to suffer the negative effects of plaque and the possibility of the development of gum diseases.
Always ensure that your daily dental hygiene plan is kept to when you have lost a tooth, or call your dentist to advise on options such as dental implants in Glasgow to amend the problem of the missing tooth.

What happens during the procedure?
Firstly, we always offer a consultation before any procedure is undertaken. Our lead surgeon Dr. Greig McLean will lead the consultation, so you will be with our top surgeons for your initial advice and assistance. All costs and the treatment plan will be calculated from there. If after your consultation you still feel confused, we are always here to take your questions and help you to understand what is involved.
The three step process of implantation involves burying the implant into the jawbone underneath the gum, waiting for the gum to heal and the artificial root to begin to fuse to the bone.
Once secure, the next stage is adding an abutment to the root which will hold the artificial tooth, and once this has been settled in place, the artificial tooth can be placed on top to settle in line with your other teeth once healing has been approved for this stage. In one-stage dental implantation, a temporary abutment is added to the implant for the healing process.
The teeth you are fitted with on the first day are a prototype for your new, permanent smile. They help immensely with the healing process, and we can assess what changes you would like to have on your final smile if there are any things you wish to make.
A full set of teeth will take somewhere between 2 – 3 visits to have them fully completed, but you can be assured that you are going to have a great experience.
You are under general anaesthetic during the procedure, so don’t worry about feeling a thing. Our professionals will ensure you are well looked after and that you will have a great dental experience to share with friends and family.
Unsure how flexible your weekly schedule is for treatment? Not to worry. The Berkeley Clinic is open late on weekdays and on weekends to offer full flexibility for all of our patients.
