Suffering from unexplained health issues? Missing teeth might be one reason!

“No Teeth - No Nutrition” is what we all know from ancient times. Efforts have always been made to replace the same, either in the form of dentures made with Ivory almost 1000 years ago or using Dental Implants as the most advanced technique of the present era.

There are many reasons why people have missing teeth and unfortunately they learn to live with it despite of difficulty in chewing, unexplained jaw pains as well as noticeable facial cosmetic deficiency. Such patients suffer from day to day social embarrassment due to less reliable removable dentures as the treatment of choice from olden days and resigned themselves to the belief that there is no ideal solution to close the voids in their smile. They don’t even realize that improper chewing of food leads to lot of digestive, nutritional and neuromuscular issues which affects overall systemic health in long run.

If you are amongst one such individual, Dental Implant is a one stop reliable solution, which can provide you strong and secure teeth along with a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Dental Implants, aren’t like your grandparent’s dentures. In fact, they are the most sophisticated dental rehabilitation solution that have become a popular way of permanently fixing missing teeth - says Dr. Anmol Agarwal, Consultant Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon and Implantologist, Yashoda Super Specialty Hospital, Kaushambi, Ghaziabad

Remember, that opting for dental implant is not a decision you can make on your own. It’s important to consult a experienced Dental Implantologist who can evaluate your case and explain you about the available options.

Hectic lifestyle with rising stress level, is becoming one of the leading causes of various health problems in the present time. Out of these health issues, burning sensation and recurrent ulcers in the mouth associated with reddish white patches over the cheeks or gums, is a common complaint which require proper diagnosis and early management. Usually oral health remains neglected and always comes in the later preferences to attend, reason being unawareness, apprehension and mainly silent nature of all the oral diseases.

Addictive habits, like consuming arecanut, tobacco and even excessive chilies acts as a predisposing factors in causing such problems. Unfortunately, huge number of people in our country, keep suffering from such issues without getting definitive treatment, either due to lack of knowledge about whom to consult or myths about the diseases.

Long standing mouth ulcers, burning in the mouth or restricted mouth opening might be precancerous which may occur due to various reasons, had it been habit related, teeth related, due to systemic diseases or sometimes the cause is unknown, whatever may be the reason early consultation with the right specialist plays a key role in diagnosing and  treating the disease in time. General Dental Surgeons and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are usually the first specialist to attend such problems.
