Today we gathered some of the most usual questions from our patients and want to share them with you. This will likely help you make a decision to get the affordable services of our dentists in Cancun.
I want to change the shape of my teeth, what options do I have?
This is a very easy question to answer. If you only want to change some small detail of the way your teeth look (perhaps there’s a small chip or imperfection) then you could definitely get veneers. If there is a bigger problem with the way your teeth look then the best could be to get full dental crowns. You should know that crowns and veneers require the best oral hygiene possible, so you should use toothbrush, floss, oral irrigator and even mouthwash to ensure your crowns will last for a long long time. You can find cheap crowns with the same materials and quality here than in USA.
Will my jaw shrink when I lose all my teeth?
Yes, this is a definite fact. Without the chewing stimulation when eating from the root of the teeth, the bone will be affected by accelerated bone resorption. This means it will start loosing mass with time and you could end up with a very fragile jaw bone. The speed at which this happens varies depending on sex, age, health and other hereditary genetic factors.
What are the benefits of dental implants rather than using dentures?
There are many benefits to use dental implants instead of dentures. First, the dental implant will stimulate the bone like the natural root of the tooth so that means you will stave off losing bone. Dentures can’t help with this problem and in fact sometimes they seem to exacerbate bone loss. For this reason you will have to regularly reline the interior of your dentures to keep fitting with the new form of your gums.
