Dental Implants For Chron Disease Patients

Chron’s disease is a persistent inflammatory bowel disease that often affects the digestive tract’s lining. This disease can cause severe dehydration due to significant amounts of excrement exiting the body. It can also affect dental health because dehydration causes the mouth to dry up increasing the rate of bacterial infections in the mouth.

Severe dehydration may also affect jaw bones and teeth due to lack of adequate amounts of saliva in the mouth. This presents a challenge to patients who want to use dental implants because weak jaw bone composition and teeth structure rules out the use of dental implants as a dental treatment option. Fortunately, certain medications can help heal chron’s disease and allow patient to use dental implants to treat their dental problems. Otherwise, chron’s disease can worsen dental conditions such as cavities, making it difficult for patients to comfortably bite and chew food.

Supplemental Procedures
Patients with chron’s disease must treat the condition first before seeking treatment for their dental problems. Early treatment can prevent the disease from worsening oral health problems. Some of the treatment options for chron’s disease include supplemental dental procedures such as soft tissue augmentation and bone graft to remodel damaged dental structure. However, these only work for people who have the disease under control. A patient suffering from physical erosion of the jaw bone may require a bone graft, which involves performing bone tissue transplant. This process involves the removal of all fractured and damaged teeth or bone tissues and replacing them with new and healthy tissue. The recovery period for this dental procedure may range from three to four months depending on the severity of the condition and the amount of bone tissue that was replaced.

Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants are effective dental treatment options. Unlike tooth replacement, dental implants are able to restore the oral and dental health of the patient with time. By protecting the remaining teeth and gum tissue from harmful bacteria, they can prevent gum disease and increase the density of the teeth and jaw with every bite. Dental implants allow patients to achieve a healthy bite and mastication potential that allow the teeth and the jaw bones to heal themselves. The effects of dental implants can last a lifetime with proper dental care. Many people use implant aesthetics to improve the look of their dental implants.
