WHAT IS AN IMPLANT?
The dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is inserted into the jaw instead to secure a tooth or bridge. Dental implants can be an option for people who have lost their teeth due to periodontitis, injury or other reasons. Plates, screws and nails made of titanium material are called implants. The placement of these teeth is called implantation and is approximately the size of the root (8 – 16 mm) and 3.5 – 4 mm in diameter. These implants take over the task of missing teeth
STAGES OF IMPLANT CONSTRUCTION
What is a dental implant procedure?
This procedure is a team work between you and your dentist. Your dentist will ask you where and how to place the implant. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant selected, your dentist will create a treatment plan that meets your needs.
Single tooth replacement: If a single tooth is missing, an implant and a crown can replace it.
Replacing multiple teeth: If multiple teeth are missing, implant-supported bridges can correct them.
Replace all teeth: If all teeth are missing, the implant-supported full bridge or full denture can correct them.
Examination: If the patient’s general health is suitable for implant application, the dentist will decide on the type and length of implant to be used, depending on the condition of a particular radiograph and the condition of the teeth in the mouth. It is very important that the doctor who decides on the implant and prosthesis to be produced at this stage should decide, should he make the decision with an oral surgeon who has experience with the subject.
Operation: The surgery should be performed by maxillofacial surgery. The doctor performing the prosthesis should also attend the surgery and support the planned application. Depending on the number of implants to be used, the procedure can take between 30 and 90 minutes.
Healing phase: After implantation, a certain amount of time is required for the implants to integrate into the bone. This period is at least 3 months. During this time, if necessary, a temporary prosthesis can be attached to the patient. During the healing period, the doctor will periodically call the patient for the controls and, if necessary, request another X-ray.
Implant and abutments: After the specified healing time has passed and the implant’s periphery is completely filled with new bone, the superstructure is placed on the implant.
Prosthesis: The prosthesis to be produced is measured with the appropriate material.
As you know, your own teeth require oral care at home and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and require the same care. Brushing and flossing to keep your implant clean and plaque free is just as important as with your own teeth!
After the treatment, your periodontist and dentist will work closely with you to develop the best care plan for you. At regular intervals, follow-up visits are scheduled to monitor the implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.
-In the edentulous upper and lower jaw; if the patient can not use his prosthesis due to excessive bone resorption. Fixation is ensured by placing the prosthesis on the implanted implants.
-Loss of molars teeth; if the posterior region ends without a tooth, instead of a partial denture that can be removed and removed from the patient, a fixed bridge with multiple implants can be made.
-In case of loss of a single tooth; By protecting the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, a single implant can be placed in place of that tooth.
-Long toothless gaps; if the bridge is too long, producing a fixed bridge construction is usually somewhat problematic. Therefore, the support and durability of the bridge to be fabricated with one or more implants to be applied to the toothless area can be increased.
One of the biggest advantages of an implant is the restoration of full chewing power. Most patients can not tell the difference between natural teeth and implant teeth. You can eat completely normally and usually clean and clean your teeth.
When you lose your teeth, you tend to lose bone mass in the jaw. Dental implants are also the only replacement option that replaces jawbone stimulation and prevents bone loss.
A dental bridge can last up to ten years, but the dental implants can last a lifetime. The implant is made of titanium material and integrates into the jawbone. It is not toxic and is not repelled by the body. In addition, the teeth support your facial structure. When you lose your teeth, you lose the support that causes your face to change shape and make you look old. The dental implants support your face similar to your natural teeth.
This time depends on several factors, such as general health, daily maintenance and cleaning of the implant. However, as with any other medical treatment, it is generally not possible to give a lifetime guarantee. The minimum residence time in the mouth of the implant means a shortening of the life of the prosthesis. Since the implant is made of titanium and integrated into the jawbone, it is very durable. It is not poisonous. Since it is not rejected by the body, it can actually last for life in the mouth.
The dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is instead inserted into the jaw to secure a tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost their teeth due to periodontitis, injuries or other reasons. Plates, screws and nails made of titanium material are referred to as implants. The placement of these teeth is referred to as implantation and is approximately in the dimensions of the tooth root (8 – 16 mm) and 3.5 – 4 mm in diameter. These implants take on the task of missing teeth.
Our implants meet the highest international standards and are manufactured in Germany using the latest technology.
