Kids are kids. They play a lot, run a lot, hurt themselves a lot.
Sometimes injuries in children result in a tooth loss. There are also cases of children that are missing some teeth congenitally.
Most of these cases are being treated with dental implants nowadays. Teenagers and their parents are often concerned about the time the tooth can be replaced with a new one and keep asking if they can have a dental implant placed as soon as possible.
If you are looking for information on dental implants in our webpage or on the internet in general, you'll probably come across a lot of posts that usually describe all their advantages.This post will actually describe all their disadvantages, in an effort to give you a more complete description of this treatment modality.
Dental implants are being used for 35 years for prosthetic treatment of partially or fully edentoulous people.
Research and clinical practice have proved that they can change radically the lives of people who have lost one or more teeth and give back to them their missing self confidence.
Lately people call my practice, e mail or visit me for an initial consultation expressing major concerns about the prices of dental implants.
Talking to them, i realize that in Athens most implants cost somewhere between 1000 to 2000 Euros for the placement and their restoration. What causes such a huge difference in price? How can a patient decide the dentist to treat him or her, if the cost is so different between them?
If you lost a tooth and want to have it replaced, then you probably faced the dilemma of choosing between a three-unit bridge and a dental implant.
Dental implants are the most successful type of treatment that dentistry has to offer and even though three-unit bridges have successfully been used for several years, the excellent survival rates of implants prove that this treatment modality is here to stay for good.
Lets discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each solution separately.
Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.
Whitening is not a one-time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.
An excellent solution for totally edentulous patients is a fixed prosthesis supported by dental implants.
A fixed implant prosthesis provides our patients with comfort and self-confidence.
When you finish the treatment you will be able to feel like when you had your natural teeth.

A Couple of Months Before: Avoid Food and Drink that stain your teeth.
Deeply pigmented beverages such as soda, coffee, dark tea, and red wine can stain teeth, as can foods like blueberries, cherries, and soy sauce. If they can stain white cotton, they will probably stain your teeth too. Beware of white wine, too. All vino -- whether colorless or red -- can roughen up tooth enamel and make your smile more susceptible to stains.
Teeth and the way they look are a significant part of the smile and if they don't look well, people tend to get self conscious of their smile.
