There are three main groups for eliminating dental deficiencies with implants. Each group has its own way of implementing.
In case of full toothlessness, fixed or mobile, implant-based prosthesis applications are required. Fixed applications are considered as a priority. In fixed applications, the patient has the opportunity to use it comfortably. It also gains psychological support and self-confidence.
The cost of fixed implant prosthetic applications is higher than moving prostheses. The number of implants applied is effective in determining the type of prosthesis. Usually two or four implants are used to make a moving prosthesis.
All teeth are missing, when it comes to, both to use and aesthetically need to be treated. The person who has lost all the teeth will naturally feel the lack of chewing. Aesthetically, the teeth support soft tissue both on the jawbone and on the lips. The root parts of the teeth provide the necessary support for the jawbone. In the absence of roots, bone withdrawal and osteoporosis occur. The lips run in and the undesirable image occurs. It is possible to end these problems with full implant.
For a patient who has lost all his teeth, a full implant is a comforting procedure. It is used as a tooth that is inserted and removed by placing 2 or 4 implants according to the quality and shape of a jawbone. In this way, the implant is prevented from dislocating or playing while talking with the supports of the tooth, eating and sneezing.
When there are no teeth left in the mouth, one of the methods used is to use the full palate and the other method is to use full implant teeth. After the teeth are pulled, the jawbone shortens and thins. This situation causes an elderly appearance in people due to decreased lip and cheek support. With the prostheses made in this way, it is ensured that it takes its place not only in the teeth but also in the tissues.
Another option is hybrid prostheses. The hybrid prosthesis used receives support from tissue such as dentures. It’s a fixed prosthesis. It’s out of the question to wear it and take it off. For this prosthesis, bone height and width must be appropriate. Depending on bone level, 4-6-8 implants may be required for a chin.
What a patient with no teeth in his mouth wants most is to have a fixed tooth that looks like a real tooth. For full implant option, the jawbone must not be melted and not last long after the teeth are pulled. Bone height is not preventing the aesthetic appearance, the most important is the criterion. For a chin, you need to place at least 6 implants.
