Dental implants are screws obtained from titanium placed inside the jawbone instead of missing teeth. Since titanium fits very well with the jawbone, titanium is often used.
In dentistry, implants have a very common use. It is applied in a wide range of areas, from a lack of single teeth to patients with no teeth.
Dental implant application takes place without any intervention to neighboring teeth. It has been one of the most widely applied dental treatment methods by giving an image very close to natural teeth, having the closest chewing sensation to normal and providing treatment without interfering with other teeth.
TEETH IMPLANTS ARE MADE TO PEOPLE?
Implants are applied to people who are in good general health, have healthy gums and have bone in the jaw structure that support implants. In cases where the jawbone is not sufficient, dental implants can be performed using advanced techniques.
TEETH IMPLANTS SHOULD BE MADE TO PEOPLE?
In people with tooth deficiency, there are many problems aesthetically and functionally. There may be problems with the jawbone as tooth loss causes the closure to change. No effective chewing can be done. It can lead to aesthetic problems and speech disorders, so people may have less self-esteem.
Dental implans are the ideal choice for good oral health in people who lose their teeth due to peridontal disease, decay or any other cause.
DOES TOOTH IMPLANT NOT APPLIED TO PEOPLE?
Dental implants are not suitable for young individuals who have not developed bone and who are treated with radiation in the head and neck area.
Those with diabetes, high blood pressure, hemophilia and autoimmune diseases, bisphosphonate, corticoteride or the condition of people who use immunosuppressive drugs, can be implanted by taking the opinions of the doctors who treat. If doctors do not allow it, the implant cannot be applied.
IS THERE ANY PAIN IN IMPLANT OPERATION?
In order for the implant operation to be painless, local anesthesia used during tooth extraction is sufficient. Conscious sedation or general anesthesia may be applied if some medical requirements or the patient requests it. Pain relief given to the patient to undergo the operation is sufficient. Patients often express as much discomfort as a tooth extraction.
HOW TO DO Dental Implants?
Dental implant treatment is started with limited numbness in the clinical environment. Patients who are sensitive to surgical operations are given sedation and general anesthesia and implant procedures are started. After the anesthesia procedure, the gums are opened by surgical procedure and the jawbone is revealed. The jawbone is first opened by a small-diameter guide hole. The guide hole is adapted to the position where the implant will be placed, the traumatic effect on the bone is reduced, and then the implant placement process is completed by screwing the implant into the space area of the jawbone.
After the implant screw is inserted, a valve screw is placed on the implant for the purpose of protecting it. The opened gum is sewn and closed and the waiting process is started.
Approximately two or three months later, the protective screw is removed and a temporary crown is placed on the implant. The temporary crown serves as a naturally shaped template around the gum. After the gum is formed, the temporary crown is removed and the treatment process is completed by placing the permanent crown.
WHEN IS THE PROSTHESIS INSERTED?
After implants are inserted, it takes between 2 months and 6 months for the jawbone and implant to boil. This period varies depending on the patient’s age, bone quality and systemic condition. When this healing period is completed, the preferred prostheses are attached to the implant.
IS THERE ANY PAIN IN THE APPLICATION OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?
During surgical procedure, limited numbness is performed to avoid pain. For some reason, or at the patient’s request, conscious sedation or general anesthesia may be applied. Painkillers given to the patient after application are sufficient.
