What is Dental Implant?
Dental Implant is a mostly screw-shaped artificial tooth root placed inside the jaw to replace missing teeth. Since the jaw bone perceives titanium as part of the body, implants are mostly made of titanium, and the success rate of implants is very high due to the high tissue compatibility. The reason for finding a very common use in dentistry is that it can be applied in a wide range from single tooth deficiencies to patients with no teeth at all. This application is carried out without interfering with neighboring teeth. The fact that the chewing sensation is closest to normal and it creates the opportunity to treat without interfering with other teeth has made implant-containing methods one of the most applied treatment methods in our century.
When to load an implant?
People with teeth deficiency experience many functional and aesthetic problems. It is not possible to chew effectively in tooth deficiency. Teeth loss can also cause problems in the jaw joint, as it causes the closure to change. In addition, because of aesthetic problems and speech disorders that may occur, people’s self-confidence can be affected. Implants are an ideal option for good oral health in people who have lost their teeth for periodontal disease, caries, trauma or other reasons.
In areas where teeth are missing, melting in the jaw bone occurs over time. The application of the implant following tooth extraction significantly reduces this amount of melting. It is more protective than traditional bridges since it does not receive support from neighboring teeth.
Dental Implants can also be used when a fixed prosthesis (such as a crown or bridge) cannot be made in cases where the last teeth are missing in the jaws, when a prosthetic (inserted and removed) prosthesis is not preferred, or when the total prosthesis is difficult to use to prevent the prosthesis from moving in the mouth.
Who can be implanted?
Individuals with good general health, healthy gums and bones that can support implants in the jawbone, and good oral care individuals have a high success rate in dental implant treatment. In some cases, the amount of bone is not sufficient for implant placement. If bone loss is high, implants can be placed by providing advanced infrastructure for implant placement by applying advanced techniques.
Who can not be implanted?
- Individuals with radiotherapy applied to the head and neck region
- Young individuals who have not completed bone growth and development,
- If the health conditions of individuals with systemic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, hemophilia and autoimmune disease, using bisphosphonates, corticosteroids or immunosuppressive drugs can be consulted with their doctors, the implant can be applied.
How is the dental implant procedure performed?
Dental Implant application is usually carried out in two stages. For a standard implant application that does not require further surgery, at the first stage, local anesthesia is applied to the area where the implant will be placed, and the gingiva is carefully removed after the region is anesthetized. The bone is prepared and placed for the implant in accordance with the predetermined bone thickness and height. In the second stage of the implant application, the implant that is covered is opened and the part that imitates the tooth is placed and the prosthesis procedures are started after waiting for a certain period according to the condition of the bone and the jaw applied for the implant to fuse with the bone.
When can your prosthesis be made after dental implants are placed?
The bone healing time ranging from 1 to 6 months is required depending on the patient’s age, bone quality and systemic status in order for the implants to fuse with the bone after insertion (if further applications have not been performed). With the improvement of the surface properties of the implants used today, temporary implant prostheses can be made that function in some cases and do not function if the implant has been placed with sufficient force depending on the bone.
There are many factors that determine the time of the prosthesis to be made on the implant.
Your dentist will determine the correct timing after detailed evaluation, considering your expectations.
Does Dental Implant Surgery Hurt?
Local anesthesia that we use during tooth extraction is sufficient for a painless intervention. Some medical requirements, and sometimes deliberate sedation or general anesthesia may be required at the request of the patient. The painkiller we will provide is enough for you to have a comfortable post-operative period. Most of our patients mention that there is less discomfort than felt in tooth extraction. You will not even feel the presence of implants in your mouth after your treatments are over.
Is implant surgery safe? Is there any reason to fear or worry?
Implant surgery can have minor risks as well as in every surgical procedure. Your dentist will give you the detailed information. When everything is done correctly, it is a very safe treatment.
From which substance is the implant made?
The dental implant is made of titanium or its alloys. It is not affected by mouth fluids and is designed to withstand the forces that will occur in the mouth. By being coated with some special substances, the texture-friendly properties of titanium were increased and the healing time is shortened.
Do Dental Implants Last Forever?
Implants, like teeth, are associated with gingiva and bone, and discomfort that may occur in these structures can affect the implants. When good oral care cannot be applied, the gum around the implants can become inflamed, causing problems that can result in gum disease and implant loss, similar to the natural tooth. You can use your implants in a healthy way for a long time when you apply proper oral care around the implants as well as natural teeth and go to routine controls.
