The implant is artificial tooth roots made of special material placed on the jawbone to restore function and aesthetics of missing teeth. It is the best alternative to natural teeth. Provides better speech and chewing function than traditional bridges and prostheses. Correct diagnosis is a form of treatment which, when applied with sufficient knowledge, experience and equipment, can give exceptionally successful results in terms of implant, patient and physician.
Implants can be made for each case, whether it is a single tooth or if there is more than one tooth missing, if there is bone in the right amount to implant.
Implant screws are structures that have a specific thickness and width. For this reason, in the area where the implant should be placed, the jawbone must have the height and width to accept this implant screw. The quality of the existing bone is also one of the factors affecting implant success. Also, as long as the implant remains in the mouth and before the treatment, the gums must be completely healthy. As long as the patient’s overall health condition is good, there is no upper age limit to prevent implantation, but very young patients who have not completed bone development and those who can not do oral hygiene are not preferred.
Implants are left in the bone for 3-6 months to provide osteointegration.
If the implants are thought to be foreign bodies in the mouth, the cleaning needs to be at least as good as your own teeth.
The dentures to be made on the implants may be of different types.
Is the implant risky?
There is no risk beyond the risks that can be observed in all surgical procedures, whether in the mouth or not. The subject is placed under local anesthesia. Problems such as infection and allergies in the early period and inflammation due to insufficient oral hygiene in the late period after the completion of the prosthesis may occur.Smoking increases the risk of infection especially during early healing.
What advantages does implant therapy provide?
For those who do not have teeth but can not use removable dentures for a variety of reasons, such as excessive nausea, reflexes, advanced jawbone eruption, the implant is the first one to be considered.
Patients with a total prosthesis with no teeth in the lower cannone complain of constant pain, bruising, and prosthesis play. This complaint becomes even more pronounced over time with the proliferation of bone, which supports the prosthesis. In such patients, implant treatment also removes all of the above complaints as well as stops the bone marrow.
The need to cut the teeth firmly to make the prosthesis hooked with hooks, or to make bridges, implants are the only alternative. The placement of a single implant also leads to more aesthetic and functional results as well as the removal of adjacent teeth.
What are the advantages of implant treatment?
- Better chewing
- Better aesthetic appearance
- A happier social life with the recovery of self-confidence
- Healthier and balanced diet due to eating everything
What are the disadvantages of implant treatment?
Importance of all the materials used and the need for very high technology for healthy implant production increase the price of the treatment. Due to the economic conditions in our country, the increase in exchange rates negatively affects the cost of the treatment. The complexity and length of the implant placement varies depending on the patient’s dental health and needs, and the result can be a great investment.
Very careful mouth cleaning process
Very good oral hygiene should be done during the time that the implant is placed in the bone and then after the prosthesis is completed. Keeping oral hygiene at the top level is the first criterion to be considered before implant placement.
