Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, usually made of titanium or titanium components, to function in the mouth of missing teeth.
Titanium is preferred as implant material because it is a material that is very compatible with body tissues and resistant to forces.
Dental implant application is the process of placing implants in the cavities formed by missing teeth. implants are placed with a simple procedure when the jawbone is sufficient. If the bone quantity and level are not sufficient, procedures for bone building are performed before implant application.
HOW TO APPLY IMPLANTS?
Dental implant application is a very simple and painless procedure. First, the area is numbed with limited numbness. According to the dimensions of the implant, a socket is prepared in the bone and an implant is placed in this socket. After the implant is inserted, the screws that will remain on the implant are placed and a certain amount of time is expected for the implant and bone to boil.
Dental implants must boil firmly with the jawbone in order to remain healthy in the face of pressures during chewing. The recovery time of the implants depends on the type of operation, region, age and health status of the patient. Permanent prostheses should be waited for a period of 1-3 months after the operation. If treatment is applied for people with bone deficiency, the waiting period may be prolonged. after the recovery period, the measurement is taken and the planned prosthesis is made.
BENEFITS OF IMPLANTS
Implants instead of missing teeth are important for the health and function of the surrounding teeth and the whole chewing system. Aesthetics and chewing function are obtained. The surrounding teeth slip into the missing tooth cavity and disfigurements are also prevented.
With dental implant application, bone losses occurring in the tooth cavities are also prevented.
Teeth implants ARE APPLIED TO PEOPLE?
Dental implant application is a treatment that can be applied to any person except in some cases. The thickness, height and quality of the implant can also be implanted with anyone with a jawbone.
Some people may inherit very thin and low amounts of bone. Some people's inflammation of the teeth and gums can cause the bone tissue around them to melt. Therefore, when a tooth is decided to be pulled, it is useful to do it immediately in order not to cause bone loss.
IS THERE ANY PAIN IN IMPLANT APPLICATION?
In dental implant application, pain is not felt because surgical procedures are performed with limited numbing. In laser assisted procedures, pain and swelling after treatment are minimal. It prevents pain killers given by the dentist who performs the treatment.
WHAT TO DO AFTER IMPLANT APPLICATION
After the implant application, cold application is performed with certain intervals in accordance with the physician's recommendations to the area where the procedure is performed. This application prevents edema and swelling. Medications given by the physician should be used regularly. Attention should be paid to oral care. Oral hygiene is very important. If not taken care of, it may cause the implant application to fail.
