The science of using gold compounds in treating medical conditions is called chrysotherapy or aurotherapy. Pharmacological use of gold started in 1927 with the development of a medicine called Auranofin which was used to cure Rheumatic arthritis, and to improve the painful and stiff limbs.
In Chinese and Egyptian early history, it was used in gold dental implants because it was malleable, this evidence can be found from skulls over 5000 years old that were found to have gold teeth in their mouths. Gold appears to have a powerful effect on the immune system, which enables it to relieve the painful symptoms of arthritis. Other than this, gold is possessed with great relaxing attributes, which are thought to be really helpful in treating neurological disorder; gold activates the functioning of the nerves which are used for relaying information to and from the brain, it strengthens the conductivity in the nervous system.
Gold implants are used in various medical procedures including reconstructive surgery of the middle ear, anti-tumor treatment, drug delivery microchips, teeth implants and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. If you are considering having gold dental implants, it is important that you understand all the care issues and procedures involved in the surgery.
It is important to know that gold dental implants are permanent, it is very complicated, painful and costly to reverse this decision later, and in some cases it is impossible. Generally, teeth implants are less successful on people who have weak jawbones or who have a history of serious gum disease and so it is critical to work closely with your general physician and dentist to make sure that the surgery is successful.
Gold dental implants have two pieces; this includes a titanium implant that is surgically screwed into the jawbone, and the actual gold tooth. The gold tooth is attached to the implant and functions just like a normal tooth, it can be used to chew and bite, can be cleaned like natural teeth and it is permanent. To add some sparkle to your smile, you can decorate your gold teeth with real or artificial diamonds or gemstones. The benefits of gold teeth implants are the same as those of other types of implants, they are rooted in the jawbone and therefore does not cause strain on the surrounding teeth.
