Understanding The Process Of Dental Implant Installation

READ MORE

Dental implants can be used to replace one or more teeth. Installation of dental implants requires a jaw surgery. An orthodontist makes an opening in the jaw bone and places the implant made of Titanium or Zirconia. After the implant fuses with the jaw bone, a crown is placed on it.

Patients are often scared when they hear about dental implant surgery. Here I try to explain the process of the surgery in a simple manner to educate patients who are heading for the dental implants surgery. It is important to know about the parts of a dental implant before proceeding to understand the dental implants process.

Parts of a Dental Implant

  • Implant

The implant is a metal screw made of Titanium or Zirconia. It is placed inside or on the jaw bone depending on the type of the implant.

  • Abutment

The abutment acts as a link between the dental implant and the artificial tooth. It is made of Titanium, Porcelain or Gold. The abutment and the implant are attached with a screw. The abutment looks like a tooth, which is reshaped for the installation of a crown.

  • The Restoration

The crown placed over the abutment and looks like a natural tooth is known as the restoration. The crown or restoration is made of porcelain, metal alloy or a combination of both. The crown is either screwed into the abutment or cemented on it.

Process of the Installation of Dental Implant

The entire dental implant process can take anywhere between 5 months to a year. The duration depends on the time taken by the jaw bone to heal and fuse into the implant.

The first step in the installation process is the jaw surgery. The surgery is performed by a team of experienced surgeons and orthodontists. The surgeon makes a small cut in the gum and drills a hole in the jaw bone. The implant is inserted into the hole and the gum is stitched back. After this procedure, it takes 3 to 6 months for the bone to heal and fuse with the implant.

Once the orthodontist confirms that the bone is completely healed and fused, he proceeds to the second step. It involves making a cut in the gum to expose the implant and fixing the healing cap. The healing cap helps to heal the gum tissue and makes it ready for abutment. After the surrounding gum tissue around the implant is ready, the abutment is installed.

The last step in the dental implant process is to install the crown or the restoration. The crown is customized to suit the shape and color of the natural teeth.

After the completion of the 3 step dental implants process, you are ready with a confident smile and better speaking ability.

How To Choose The Right Trailer Hitch For Your Vehicle

READ MORE

Finding the right trailer hitch for a vehicle is simple and easy. There are curt hitches that are made vehicle specific according to the vehicle’s year, make, model and style. Some vehicles have more than one option to choose from that are compatible with the vehicle.

What size of hitch should you choose? If you frequently tow heavier vehicles, the towing potential can be maximized with a higher rated hitch and larger hitch receiver. If you are only towing light duty trailers or if are using the hitch receiver to manage cargo with a bike rack and cargo carrier, a good option will be a smaller trailer hitch.

If you want to prioritize aesthetics when buying a trailer hitch, you can choose between the tow hitches with round tube bodies and square tube bodies. The round body hitch has a sleeker look but it is more expensive. You can also choose between concealed and exposed hitches. If you want more original equipment feel and look, choose the concealed hitch that can be hidden underneath the vehicle.

After you have selected a hitch for the vehicle, you have to purchase additional hitch-mounted accessories or cargo management accessories. Most custom trailer hitches include all the necessary hardware for complete installation of accessories. However, there are instances when you will need a ball mount to couple to the trailer. The ball mount must have sufficient towing capacity with a correct shank and trailer ball size.

For travel trailers, the best hitches are class 3, class 4 and class 5 because they offer the tow capacity to safely tow larger trailers. Most of hitches are compatible with a weight distribution hitch that is needed for towing travel trailers. However, not all vehicles are compatible with class 3, class 4, and class 5 hitches. For pickup trucks and SUVs, higher rated hitches are required.

You can get curt hitches from TDotPerformance.ca according to the possible load size and maximum weight requirements of the trailer. The receiver style hitch with a ball mount is the most popular style of hitch that can be seen on SUVs and vans. Receivers can be installed at the back or front of the vehicle.

The Phenomenon Of Nuptial Flight

READ MORE

No one in his right mind would want pests to invade the home. Aside from being unhealthy, there are pests like termites that can damage the home’s structure. Bedbugs could disturb a good night’s sleep because it is the perfect opportunity to suck your blood. Pest control and maintenance is the reason why home exterminator services are very popular right now.

On the first sunny day after the first weekend with rain, thousands of winged insects can be observed all over Israel. The winged insects are ants and termites that have grown wings within their colony. They swarm the streets in broad daylight looking for mates and establish new colonies.

Davidson Institute of Science Education calls the phenomenon as the “nuptial flight” or the mating flight of insects like social bees and ants. These creatures that are more popularly known as “winged sexuals” emerge from their hiding places when the temperature and humidity is acceptable to them. It usually correlates with the first rain of the season. The insects gather at a certain area and start their nuptial flight.

Igor Armiach Steinpress of the Davidson Institute said that a few hours after the first rain, royal ants that are direct offspring’s of the queen ant and termites that have sprouted wings will congregate by their nests before they fly. The area surrounding the nests will have a silver-like hue to effectively turn the surface into an airstrip for thousands of breeding insects.

According to Steinpress, ants are not competent fliers so that they could only fly for a few times if not once throughout their lifespan. Humans will often experience ants landing on them because they are searching for potential mates. After mating, the queen flies away to build another new colony where she can reign as queen. Meanwhile, the male will be left to die because he has accomplished his mission.

The phenomenon is not dangerous to humans but when the winged termites establish colonies in your property, you need to call home exterminator services to prevent serious structural damages. Termites are attracted to wood because it is the source of their meals. Protect your property at all costs through appropriate pest control.

 

The Process Of Invisalign Treatment

READ MORE

Invisalign treatment is an advanced orthodontic treatment to straighten crooked teeth. Invisalign are clear aligners made from flexible plastic materials. These aligners are like plastic trays that are placed over the teeth, like guards. Once installed, they exert pressure on the teeth and move them slowly to the desired position.

Most of us are worried when we hear that our child needs an orthodontic treatment. Knowing about the treatment beforehand helps to lessen the anxiety and prepare you for the road ahead. Here is a brief explanation about the process of Exton Invisalign treatment.

  • The Initial Consultation

Choose a reputed orthodontist and schedule an initial consultation. During the initial consultation, the orthodontist examines the teeth and the mouth. He explains about the different options available to treat the case and outlines the cost of each option. You can clear all your doubts about the duration of the treatment, total costs, dental care tips during and after the treatment and so on. Most of the orthodontic clinics offer a free initial appointment.

  • Close Examination of the Teeth and Mouth

Before starting the treatment, the doctor will conduct a close examination of the mouth. They will take x-rays, photographs, digital impressions and sometimes dental impressions. This process of collecting data about the present condition of your mouth is known as “taking records.” The entire process may take anywhere between half an hour to an hour.

  • The Invisalign Prescription Form

After taking records, the dentist will fill a formal prescription form. The invisalign prescription form contains details of the current condition of your mouth and the treatment schedule, the orthodontist wants to follow. The form is forwarded to Align Technology Inc. along with your x-rays, digital impressions and other details.

  • Transforming your Impressions to Digital Form

The technicians at Align Technologies, transform your digital impressions into 3D models using CT scanner and other advanced technology. Then they will create digital simulation of your treatment plan, which shows the exact movement of teeth during the treatment.

  • The Virtual Simulation is sent to the Doctor

The simulation is sent to the orthodontist for his/her approval.  The orthodontist may go ahead with the plan or suggest some changes if required. Some orthodontists also show the simulation to the patients to get feedback.

  • Invisalign Aligners are Created

After the go ahead by your orthodontist, Align Technologies Inc. creates sets of invisalign aligners for your treatment. The treatment may include anywhere between ten to thirty pairs of aligners.

The orthodontist will start the Exton Invisalign treatment, once he receives the aligners from the company. The duration of the treatment depends on the complexity of your case.

Short Cropped Top And Shorts Perfect For Summer

Since cropped tops come in different styles, there is no reason not to find one that will perfectly suit you.

Summer calls for cool and comfortable clothing and cropped tops are the better option than full length outfits. Girls or young ladies who want to flaunt their sexy bodies can wear cropped tops. Cropped tops make petite girls look taller because of the illusion of longer legs than the upper part of the body.

If you want to experiment with cropped tops to achieve a different fashion style, try the matching set of cropped top and short skirt. If you have a tummy, chose the slightly high-waisted skirt where only a small portion of the abdomen will be displayed.

There is also a matching set of cropped top and wide leg pants for those who are not comfortable showing off their legs. While many prefer to wear cropped tops with jeans, it tends to be hot during summer so that wide leg pants are the better choice. For a sophisticated fashion sense, wear a straw hat as accessory.

Young girls can easily pull off wearing cropped tops with low-waist fringed shorts and a nice pair of flip-flops. Not only is the outfit comfortable for summer, it is stylish and full of youthfulness. The classic white cropped top with blue shorts looks refreshing and cool. An off-shoulder white cropped top with matching accessories will look perfect with light blue jeans.

While it is usually teenage girls who wear short cropped top, there is actually no age limit to wearing one. To wear the cropped top confidently and comfortably, spend some time at the gym to achieve toned abs. Do not be self-conscious when wearing a cropped top; wear it with pride.
