In some instances, crooked teeth can affect your quality of life. For example, misaligned teeth may affect your ability to chew, causing you pain every time you eat.
In addition, some people may feel so self-conscious about their crooked teeth that they stop smiling or avoid social situations.
Other health issues that crooked teeth may cause include:
- Periodontal disease
- Chewing and digestion
- Excess wear
- Speech difficulties
If your teeth are misshapen, but not necessarily crooked, cosmetic contouring, or reshaping, might be the best option for you. The procedure is generally completed in just One Day at Royal Dental Clinics. Once the desired shape has been achieved, the teeth are smoothed and polished.
By definition dental prosthesis is an intraoral (inside the mouth) prosthesis used to restore intraoral defects such as missing teeth, or missing parts of teeth.
One of the most advanced materials for these artificial teeth are called SAPTeeth TM. SAPTeeth TM are a group of highly advanced polymers which are specially made to protect the bone, implant and the natural tooth under the prosthesis.
Based on research it can be concluded that ceramic teeth, porcelain teeth, Ni-Cr teeth (metal teeth), titanium teeth exert stresses on the bone that are about 24 to 149 times more than SAPTeeth TM. This
difference is due to the shock absorbing capability of these polymers. Therefore, in patients with weak bone or low calcium, SAPTeeth TM are recommended over conventional prosthesis.
The advantages of SAPT include:
- Looks and feels natural.
- 24 times to 149 times less stress than titanium.
- Most procedures can be conducted on the same day.
- Fast and modular repair in case of underlying tooth infection.
- Long lasting with high impact absorption.
- Very light weight
Orthodontic treatment can result in more than a pretty smile. Straightening your teeth and correcting a misaligned bite can improve your overall oral health and make it more comfortable to bite down and enjoy your favorite foods
