Cara The Tiger Gets A Gold Dental Implant

There are people who are not comfortable with bridges and dentures. A better alternative is dental implants in Easton that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. The tooth roots are replaced with titanium implant while the missing teeth are replaced with artificial teeth that function like the real ones. The procedure takes several months because the implant has to fuse to the jawbone to provide a solid support for the new teeth.

Big cat Cara is a tiger from Massweiler, West Germany. Recently, Cara had to undergo 2 complicated surgeries to save her life. 6-year old Cara was confiscated from a private owner at a farmhouse in Mugnano, Italy in 2013. Afterwards, the big cat was transferred to Tierart Tiger station in Massweiler, Germany in 2015.

Recently, a team of international tiger experts were called to prepare Cara’s front tooth for a sturdy and hard-wearing gold crown. Dentists found two deep groves and the veterinarians feared that Cara’s tooth may break any time. Two complicated operations were undertaken to save Cara’s bite and prevent any sufferings when trying to eat.

At the end of August, specialists were able to produce a cast of Cara’s teeth so that they can create a tooth implant that will perfectly fit inside the tiger’s mouth. Florian Eiserlo, a biologist told Bild in Germany that they cleaned and slightly sanded the damaged tooth so that it can hold cement properly. After setting, UV light was used to cure the adhesive.

After 3 weeks, Cara was able to eat meat again. He was happy to chew bones again after the restrictive diet that allowed the tooth to heal. According to biologist Eva Lindenschmidt, all of them were happy that Cara can properly bite. If you will look at Cara today, it seems line she is smiling to show off her new gold tooth.

Patients who have lost one or more teeth can have dental implants in Easton as long as they have adequate jawbone to support the implant and have healthy oral tissues. Dental implants are more affordable in Easton because the dentists believe that the cost of dental treatment must not be a hindrance to having a beautiful and healthy smile.
