DENTAL IMPLANT

WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed on the jaw bone and made to support the prostheses. These are screws made of more titanium, which replace the missing teeth, which can be used for a lifetime without trouble. They are placed in the jawbone by a small surgical procedure in a sterile environment by dentists. After this procedure, the implant attaches completely to the jawbone within approximately two to three months. After these steps, the implant replaces a real tooth root and becomes able to carry the prosthesis to be placed on it. In some cases, general anesthesia may be performed. In order to perform the implant application, the bone structure to support the implant and the gums must be healthy. If not, additional bone surgery is performed and the success rate is very high.

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Since the existing prostheses of the patients who have been edentulous for many years cause changes in the bone, they begin to move and dislocate by losing their adaptation over time. Since the prosthesis on the implant is made on a fixed surface, the possibility of movement or exit from the mouth is prevented. It can be applied in patients who do not want a moving prosthesis or whose bone retention is lost.

IS IMPLANT PROCESSING DIFFICULT?

Since the dental implant made with local anesthesia is made by numbing the area where it will be made, the operations are painless. Before the procedure, the medication prescribed by the dentist is taken, the use of antiseptic mouthwashes after the procedure and a good oral care speed up the healing process and make the patient comfortable.

In individuals who smoke, the risk of falling of the implant is 2-3 times higher than normal. Many studies have shown that smoking interferes with the concrescense of the implant and bone.

With the help of mini dental implant technology, existing removable prostheses are used after the operation by fitting them to the implants.
