The implant is a tissue-friendly titanium, etc., placed in the jawbone to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth. They are high-tech artificial tooth roots made from valuable materials.
With Implant Treatment, you have new teeth with superior technology instead of missing teeth.
It is the first of the undisputed systems that bring the best alternative solution to natural teeth today. Implant systems that can imitate teeth ideally, functionally, aesthetically and anatomically, have become frequently used.
Implant systems have become indispensable elements in gaining aesthetics together with durability, both in single tooth deficiencies and excessive tooth losses. The biggest aesthetic advantage is that they are the best alternative solution to the use of removable prostheses that include larger palates and small, easy-to-use prostheses such as bridges, which occur especially in the loss of the last teeth in the back region.
The palate, which has become a nightmare for many of us, is the necessity of using prosthetics. When talking with these removable large-volume prostheses, the worry of getting out of the mouth, the non-aesthetic appearance of the connecting metals while smiling, the obligation to avoid negative experiences that may be encountered during dinner invitations cause the loss of communication and self-confidence. Implant systems, which are of great importance in dental research in the 21st century, now give us the chance to get rid of removable palate prostheses.
Titanium based implants
Almost all dental implants used today are titanium based. Titanium is reactive in nature. Since it easily adapts to the substance it is used with, the inflammatory or allergic reactions that the body normally develops against foreign substances do not occur with titanium.
Titanium, the most tissue-friendly material known, is used in modern medicine in the construction of all metal-based structures placed on the body. Titanium Based Implants
Implant application areas
Anyone who wants to eliminate tooth deficiencies in their mouth and has some criteria can be implanted. One of these criteria is the condition of the bone in the area of missing teeth or teeth. There should be sufficient bone height in this area for the implant to be firmly and properly placed and hold. In addition, the patient should have good oral care, should not have gum problems and any discomfort that will adversely affect healing. There is no upper age limit for dental implant applications. The lower limit is the years when growth and development are completed.
The most important criterion for implant applications is the presence of sufficient amount and quality of bone tissue in the area to be placed. In addition, some anatomical formations should not be in a position to prevent implant placement. (You can get detailed information from your doctor about regenerative and reconstructive, advanced implantology techniques applied to make the area suitable for implant placement.)
Advantages of implantology
Dental implantology, whose first applications date back about 30 years, is a method that has proven its reliability, which is applied with 95% success when it comes together with correct planning, perfect sterilization and surgical technique, perfect prosthetic application.
We can list its advantages as follows:
In conventional bridge prostheses, damage to the teeth caused by the reduction of neighboring teeth is prevented in implant applications.
Individuals who lose the chance of having a fixed prosthesis and who are condemned to a removable prosthesis can have fixed teeth thanks to implant applications.
In cases of upper jaw total edentulism, healthier prosthesis applications that do not cover the palate completely and do not cause nausea and taste loss can be performed thanks to the support of the total prosthesis (palate) with an implant.
Individuals who play the prosthesis excessively in their mouths due to the softened jawbone and therefore cannot function comfortably or even cannot speak can be stabilized by making the prostheses supported by implants.
The resorption (melting) that occurs in the jaw bones following tooth extraction is prevented significantly after implant applications.
With prostheses that can function well and achieve much more aesthetic results, individuals can eat whatever they want, laugh freely, laugh, kiss, and perhaps live their neglected social lives to the fullest with their regained self-confidence.
Disadvantages of implant application
In dental implant applications, a period of 6-12 weeks is needed between the start-up period. In cases where regenerative and reconstructive techniques are required, this period can be doubled. (In the light of the findings of recent studies, it has been understood that in some special cases, the prosthetic structure can be placed on the same day after the implant is placed. ‘You can get more detailed information from your dentist about this concept called immediate loading.)
Dental implant applications are more expensive than conventional prosthesis applications. A significant portion of the fee paid for the purchase of implants is spent on intensive studies carried out on this subject all over the world. Implant brands that have not been studied much and have not questioned the perfection of their system well, although they are cheaper, their reliability is not complete.
Stages of implant application
The first stage of dental implant application is the placement of the implant in the jawbone. The time required for osteointegration of the implant, which is completely under the gum, is 6-12 weeks. After the completion of this period, in the second stage, with a very small intervention, a 3-4 mm diameter cover is opened on the gingiva covering the implant and small metal supports are placed on the implant to support the artificial teeth. Routine prosthesis procedures can be started by taking measurements after 1-2 weeks to shape the gingiva.
Implant operation-pain relationship
Dental implants are placed with interventions that take an average of 20 minutes per implant, where the patient is not anesthetized, using local anesthesia. For this purpose, the same amount of local anesthetic used for a simple filling to any tooth in the region is applied.
After the implant operation …
Implant operation has almost the same effect on tissues as a simple tooth extraction. In order to protect the implanted implant from overload, it may be necessary to feed softer foods and liquid foods for a few days. Your dentist will make the necessary warnings in this regard.
Canal treatment is performed under local anesthesia and no pain is felt. From the crown part of the tooth visible in the mouth, a cavity (cavity) opened into the nerve layer (pulp) of the tooth is entered into the root part of the tooth in the jawbone. The dental nerves are located in the canals in the root part.
Considering that the implant will be used for many years, it is actually an economical treatment. It may be expensive due to the initial payment of the construction cost of the implant, but it should be considered that it will be used for many years and will not change.
Of course, it is important that the implant is selected from brands that have a certain certificate (such as FDA, CE) and well-made R&D. Today, implant treatment has come to a very good point due to the developing technology and the development of the implant industry every day. The key to success is that the physician who makes more than the brand of the implant is an expert in this field and that the patient looks at the implant more carefully.
Implant can be done as soon as the tooth is extracted. This method is called immediate implant procedure. Even if the torque of the implant to the bone is sufficient, even a tooth can be placed on it immediately. Sometimes implants cannot be placed immediately in jaw bones with infected teeth. In such cases, laser can be used or implant application is made after 1.5-2 months.
While the implant is made, only the applied area is applied in a short time with local anesthesia. It is a painless and comfortable procedure. After the operation, the process is comfortable with the pain reliever to be prescribed by your physician. In addition, DIODE LASER is used to prevent postoperative pain.
