What Is The Implant?
The implant is a titanium screw used to treat missing teeth and placed inside the jawbone. A dental prosthesis is placed on these screws. The implant acts as a tooth root and performs its functions as easily as a natural tooth.
Whom Is Dental Implant Applied To?
The tooth deficiencies of patients who have lost their natural teeth due to caries, fractures or gum disease are treated by placing artificial roots that best imitate the natural tooth, called implants. The treatment range is wide enough to cover the treatment of patients who have lost all their teeth due to the lack of one teeth.
Implant treatment is applied to people over the age of 18 who complete face and jaw development. Before the treatment, the suitability of the individual's jaw structure for treatment is determined by X-rays.
People with missing teeth experience functional and aesthetic problems. Implants are applied to people who have lost their teeth due to periodontal disease, caries, trauma or other reasons.
Individuals who have healthy gums and bone that can support implants in the jawbone and who perform good oral care can undergo implants. However, in some cases, the amount of bone is not sufficient for implant placement. When bone loss is high, implants can be placed by providing the appropriate infrastructure for implant placement by applying advanced techniques.
How Is It Treated?
For implant treatment, detailed examination and x-rays are required first. In implant treatment, the patient is given local or general anesthesia. Jaw bones and teeth are measured.
In accordance with the predetermined bone thickness and height, space is prepared and placed in the bone for the implant. In the second stage of implant application, in order for the implant to integrate with the bone, the implant, which is covered, is opened after waiting for a certain period of time according to the condition of the bone and the jaw applied, and the part that mimics the tooth is placed and prosthesis procedures are started.
There are two options for the placement of dental implants. In the single-stage procedure, after the implant is placed, a temporary head piece is attached.
In the two-stage procedure, after the dental implant is inserted, it is covered with the gum and allowed to heal. Prosthetic heads are then attached. In both cases, a temporary bridge is placed and a healing process is expected for 3 months for the lower jaw and 6 months for the upper jaw. Sometimes, newly made teeth can be attached to dental implants immediately. With dental implant, the patient can eat and smile safely.
According to your genetic results, we suggest following a training programme to increase endurance. Zirconium implants are made to increase the resistance of implants made of titanium. Zirconium has a whiteness close to natural tooth color and reflects light. For this reason, it is useful in terms of aesthetics as well as durability.
