Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry by providing a permanent solution to missing teeth. You may have wondered who first came up with the idea of fitting pins into the jawbone to act as an anchor for prosthetic teeth. The implants are actually titanium pins, and the inventor of dental implants was a Swedish orthopedic surgeon by the name of Per-Ingvar Branemark, who, while studying bone healing, discovered that the metal titanium bonded very well with human bone and tissue.
This happened in the mid-1960s, and Branemark carried out experiments and tests to develop dental implants, which were finally commercialized in 1978. It didn’t take very long for dental implants to become the number one treatment for missing teeth. Of course, Per-Ingvar patented his invention, which is now used globally by dental specialists all over the world.
Of course, the dental implants are constantly being developed further, plus there is a choice of material for the prosthetic teeth, which could be high-grade porcelain or a special composite. Of course, the dentist would ensure that the colour of the prosthetic teeth is identical to the natural teeth. In the event you are replacing a full set of dentures with implants, then you can choose the shade yourself.
There are two major stages to fitting dental implants, the first involves X-Rays, in order to determine whether or not you are suitable for implant treatment. Some people do not have adequate bone structure in their jaw, and in such a case, the dentist might recommend a bone graft, to build up the jawbone using a piece of bone from your hip. If this is required, that is an extra stage in the process, and enough time must elapse for the bone graft to become solid. When the implants are fitted precisely, you must wait a further 6-8 weeks for the titanium to bond with the bone and tissue. If you are looking for dental implants in Auckland NZ, for example, an online search will help you to locate a specialist.
After a suitable period of time has elapsed, the dentist would make an appointment to fit the prosthetic teeth to the titanium pins. The dentist uses special heavy-duty adhesive, which ensures there is no movement, and you would have to see the dentist for a couple of times over the following year, just to check that all is well.
Once your dental implants have been fitted, you should brush and floss as normal, as flossing removes stubborn food particles that get trapped between the teeth. The dentist would instruct you to avoid biting down on hard food, avoid eating sticky or chewy foods, and always be aware of the need to protect your teeth and gums.

Although dental implant treatment is costly, it does provide a permanent solution for missing teeth. With some care and attention, the implants will last a lifetime. If you would like to look further into having dental implants, search online for a local dentist who specializes in dental implant treatment.
Article Updated 10-2020I love to have pretty soft and smooth feet with a nice color of polish, and when I can I will go to the salon, but there are times that I don’t have the time it takes to go to the salon or the extra money.
(See * below) Your favorite nail polish color and fast dry top coat.
I shop at the Dollar Store and have found the pumice stones along with remover, toe separators, files and Epsom salts. So if you did need to purchase items for a pedicure it could cost as little as $5.00 and save you a bunch on salon pedicures.
A little known fact to my readers is that I owned my own salon as a manicurist for 25 years and as many pedicures as I have done and recently been reading tips in magazines, I decided it was time to share how I you can perform a pedicure in less than an hour, you can do it anytime and your diy pedicure will last just as long as a salon service with a tip I learned when I was doing pedicures in my salon. The key to your polish lasting for weeks!!
♥ Shallow tub or bowl, towels, cotton balls, polish remover
♥ Epsom, kosher or table salt or foot soak
♥ Pumice stone, cuticle nippers, straight edge nail clippers, cuticle stick
♥ Lotion or foot cream
♥ Base coat, polish, top coat or quick dry
♥Toe separators or paper towels to weave between toes
A pedicure can be performed at home easily by soaking your feet in a shallow bowl or pan of water with Epsom or mineral salts. You can add essential oils, Lavender, Thieves, Eucalyptus or Peppermint.
Removing the polish from your last pedicure is the first step (and because the remover is drying, apply cuticle oil or olive oil and rub into cuticles to soften, let sit will you prepare for the next step
Prepare for soak:
You want the tub/container to be large enough for both feet, I found one at the Dollar Store. Fill a tub with hot water, (make sure water is comfortable) enough to cover your feet, add a 1/2 cup Epsom, mineral salts or Pedi-soak. Dr. Teals has a liquid and regular salt soak. The Epsom salts will help soften calluses, remove dead skin while removing embedded dirt. I know that working outside in the summer any dry areas will attract the dirt. If you don’t have Epsom salts on hand you can use kosher or table salt as a substitute. If you like bubbles you could add some bubble bath or a few drops of dish soap.
Soak your feet 5-10 minutes before you start, I like to set up at the edge of the bathtub so I can add more hot water if I need. After soaking for a few minutes…….
Time to Trim File and Shape
Now is the time to trim toenails, be sure to cut nails straight across, so to prevent ingrown nails. I like to leave a short edge, you won’t want to cut too short.
Avoid the use of a course or metal files as it can damage the free edge of the nail and cause your polish to chip. Instead, use a fine emery board or crystal file.
Calluses a Two-Step Process
Now that your feet are soft after soaking, use the pumice stone to remove calluses, add a small amount of *liquid soap, paying attention to the heals and balls of your feet. Be careful here, if you are too zealous, you can remove too much and cause your feet to be sore. I have had this happen at the salon. Return foot to bath and finish second. *Note add a bit of liquid soap to pumice stone.
For around the cuticle, I prefer not to cut the cuticle to prevent infection. The Epsom salts will remove the dry skin around toenail during the soak.
Exfoliating and finishing for smooth soft feet
If using this next step, empty water and start with a freshwater: For a smooth finish to your feet and legs you can use a scrub from a DIY Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub recipe I found that is really basic, you can make at home. Updating 8-6~ I found a great Lemon Scrub over at DIY Pampering or another Lemon Scrub from Living Chic on The Cheap
My Secret Tip for a long-lasting pedicure (Here it is)
Using your soft file, file downward on the edges, (i.e., see diagram) then smooth the edge of the nail, if you have a buffing block, buff the top and edge of the nail, this will help your polish to adhere for a long-lasting polish job, salon-quality! (No Chipping) Rinse feet and dry thoroughly.
Save Money Give Yourself a Salon Quality Pedicure at Home
Now you are ready to apply a foot cream or lotion of your choice.
*To separate toes use the toe separators or you can take strips of paper towels fold in a narrow strip and wind through toes to keep them from touching, while polishing and drying. (i.e., see the diagram below) A fan is good as long as it is not to close to help speed drying time and there are products you can buy for this as well.
Be sure there is no oil or lotion on toenails before polishing, you can use a cotton ball and use a small amount of alcohol to remove residue before proceeding. If using color, use a base coat before polishing and a top coat when finished.
Between pedicures, I keep a pumice stone in the shower and a Foot FIle, I add a bit of soap and use on areas of the feet that would build calluses to keep them smooth. Be sure to moisturize with lotion or cream, and be sure to use sunscreen and touch up polish with a topcoat.
Soft Feet Tip: If you don’t mind wearing socks, at least part of the day, or at night when going to bed, what I like to do is apply a heavy coat of “Bag Balm”, a product that is actually sold in animal feed stores or you can find it at Walmart or Walgreens, sometimes you have to ask at pharmacy.
Just knowing that you can do a “pedicure at home” with just a few supplies and the right technique can save you a fraction of the cost of a salon pedicure. But of course, there’s nothing wrong in having a salon pedicure for special occasions.
And the best part: You could even have an all-girls night of pedicures or a mom and daughter Pedi-party, one on one time doing pedicures.
