Getting yourself checked every 6months is ideal. However, your checkup dates will depend on your oral hygiene and medical conditions.
Dental implants are tapered cylindrical posts of titanium, which are placed in the jaw by the implantologist. They are substitutes for tooth roots that might stimulate the jaw bone and prevent its disintegration after the removal of the natural tooth. The area is allowed to heal for a few months, when the implant will fuse itself to the bone. Thereafter, a small connector is placed on the jaw on which the replacement tooth will be placed. The experts say that the dental implants last for about 40 years.
Invisible or lingual braces are placed at the back of the teeth. Apart from aesthetic superiority, these braces are customized appliances, fabricated individually for each patient, based on the impressions and X-rays. Thus, treatment results are far superior to regular braces, and patient comfort is at its best.
Dental X-rays use a very small amount of radiation. However, you must inform your dentist if you are pregnant. In that case, you may be provided a lead apron to prevent any harm to the unborn child.
