Dental Grills: The Bad Things

Bad Effects Of Dental Grills
Dental grills, also known as “grillz,” have become popular among some teens and adults due to their popularity among celebrities, especially rap musicians. Grills are decorative covers that snap over one or more teeth. They are usually made of gold, silver or other precious metals. But less expensive grills are often made from base metals that can cause irritation or an allergic reaction.

There are no long-term studies of dental grills, so there are no data about long-term safety or about problems resulting from long-term wear.

Grills can promote plaque buildup and tooth decay because food particles and bacteria may build up between the teeth and the grill. A grill may also cause abrasion of the teeth that border it. Excessive wearing of grills may discolor teeth, too, so grill fans may need to whiten teeth when they decide to stop wearing the grill.

Anyone who wears a dental grill should be especially attentive to dental hygiene, and follow a consistent routine of twice-daily tooth brushing and daily flossing. Also, be sure to remove the grill before eating and rinse it often to remove bacteria and food particles. Talk to your dentist before getting a dental grill and be sure to find out how best to reduce the risk of bacterial buildup and other complications.

Saving Damaged Teeth

Dental Root Canal Dentist Chicago ILRoot Canal Therapy

No longer is this treatment dreaded by patients. With the advancements made in anesthetics and procedures, it is much easier for patients and saves a tooth from being extracted. It is well known that an extraction can cause other problems later on and should be avoided if at all possible. Our doctors are experienced and successful in root canal therapy. This procedure involves removing the interior pulp chamber of a tooth and replacing it with a special material. The tooth will remain intact. Sometimes a crown is placed over it for additional strength and full functionality.

Immediate Load Dental Implants

One Day Dental Implants Chicago ILOne-Day Implants

One-day implants are used to support and hold dentures securely in place to eliminate all the annoying problems from unwanted movement. One-day implants permanently anchor your dentures, so you never need to take them out at night.

All in the same day, you can arrive with problem dentures or missing teeth and leave with fully functioning teeth. Four to six implants will support your teeth and allow them to withstand the pressure from chewing without the long waiting time for the bone to heal.

In the past, a patient would be referred to an oral surgeon for dental implants. After this doctor implanted the titanium posts, the patient would return to the regular dentist to have the restoration placed on the implant. At our practice, we perform the entire process in one visit. And equally as important, there is no waiting period of six months with gaps in your smile.
