“Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. This is indeed a very true saying. We look beautiful to the people who want to see us beautiful. However, this does not mean that we do not want to look beautiful to others. People who love us and who are near to us always find us to be beautiful. Whatever we wear, whatever we do and however we look, we still seem to be beautiful to them. Even in our bad hair days, they find us to be mesmerizing, our presence to be grandeur and make us feel good about ourselves.
However, many times, we do feel that there are some discrepancies in us and we want to do away with these problems. One such major problem that many of us do face is that of discolored, misaligned or broken tooth. Our smile is our asset and this one smile can do wonders for us. However, due to some dental problem, when we try to hide our smile, this definitely acts as a hindrance and therefore, it is important that instead of hiding the problems, we tackle them with care. In this context, dental implants is the best way to fight away to glory our dental problems.
We all want to be in our best presence all the time and have that flashy smile that can do wonders and miracles. Our appearance and our confidence do reflect when we pass a confident smile and in such cases, trying to hide our smile is simply a no-no. We can fight away with our dental problems like broken or chipped tooth with the help of dental implants. This procedure is medically acclaimed and many people have restored to this procedure that has brought in immense confidence in them. With the help of dental implants they can smile away to glory and can feel confident about their looks and their appearances.
Dental implants are also a good solution to replace a missing tooth or a couple of missing teeth. Therefore, now you do not need to worry about those missing teeth. You will simply need to consult a good dentist who could guide you with the procedure. Taking the help of a dentist would let you know the exact procedure and would help you to understand the pros and cons of the procedure. The procedure is nothing but the replacement of a missing tooth or missing teeth with artificial teeth. This is indeed very helpful.
It is very important for us to have a healthy set of teeth. It not only helps us to smile better but is also one of the major tools for a healthy body. It is important to have a healthy set of teeth because it helps us to chew our food better, which further helps us to have a good digestive system and to have a healthy body.
Therefore, it is very important to have a healthy set of teeth. Dental implants are definitely a good procedure to replace broken or chipped tooth or teeth. Therefore, you can take the help of the procedure to a healthy living and a healthy mind.

Welcome to Dr. LaVacca’s blog! Dr. LaVacca and his staff will make every effort to answer your questions and provide you with the latest information about oral health care.
Did you know, for example, that osteonecrosis has been found in a subset of patients receiving bisphosphonate therapy?
So, unless you experience this already or are another dentist… you’re probably wondering, What does that mean and who does this really affect.
Let me begin by saying that bisphosphonates are a class of agent that is used to treat osteoporosis.
Bisphosphonates currently available in the US according to Compendium, March 2008, are Alendronate (Fosamax®), Risendronate (Actonel®), Ibanadronate (Boniva®), Pamidronate (Aredia®), and Zoledronatic acid (Zometa®).
Benefits of bisphosphonate therapy include slowing the remodeling process and increasing bone mineral density which reduces the risk of fracture in women with osteopenia and osteoporosis.
It is only a small subset of patients that have emerged showing complications, but these complications are serious. As matter of fact in 2005 the US Food and Drug Administration issued a broad drug class warning on this complication that became known as BRONJ (Bisphosphonate related osteonecrosis of the jaws).
According to Merk & Co. (2008), incidence is only .7 cases per 100,000 person-years of exposure. And there is some evidence that it is the patients receiving the more potent IV bisphosphonate therapy may have higher risk.
So ..How can anyone tell if they suffer from BRONJ? Well, if you are currently or previously being treated with a bisphosphonate, if you have exposed, necrotic bone in the maxillofacial region that has persisted or have no history of radiation therapy in the jaws and have bony areas exposed in the maxillofacial area, according to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
Bisphosphonates are deposited preferentially in bones with high rate of bone remodelling(the lifelong process where bone is removed from the body and new bone is added). The maxilla and mandible have high turn over rates which is why there may be higher levels of bisphosphonates within the jaws. There have been no other complications to date outside the craniofacial skeleton.
Most cases of osteonecrosis occur at the regions of extractions, but not all. Some patients have had no history of trauma. Patients with a history of inflammatory dental disease such as periodontal and dental abscesses are seven times at risk.
Just another reason for maintaining good oral health!
If you or anyone you know suffer from BRONJ or have any questions about BRONJ, please do not hesitate to contact our office!
