Missing teeth create a big problem in terms of health or aesthetics. Implant treatment is recommended for people who experience this condition. Implant is the name given to screws made of titanium and these screws are placed inside the jawbone. With the implant tooth, the person can easily perform chewing and speaking functions.

The most important factor to be successful in implant treatment is the bone structure of the person. The person must have a suitable bone structure for implant treatment. Bone structure should be determined and then implant planning should be done. Clinical and radiological examination should be performed before implant treatment.

Implant application is one of the most common dental applications used in the world. Implants are fully compatible with body tissue, they are made of a material called titanium, which does not cause any allergies in the person’s body. Therefore, implants are not harmful and implant treatment should be preferred for a healthy and permanent tooth.

Who is Implant Treatment Applied to?

It is applied to anyone who is 18 years old and has completed the development of the jaw and face. Implant treatment is generally applied in case of loss of molar teeth, loss of a single tooth or when the patient cannot use the full denture as a result of osteoporosis.

Who Cannot Be Applied to Implant Treatment?

This treatment should not be applied to people whose jaw bone structure is not suitable. In addition, implant treatment may be inconvenient for people with rheumatic diseases, some heart diseases, blood clotting problems and people whose diabetes is not under control.

How Is Implant Treatment Performed?

A detailed examination and x-ray are required for implant treatment. The purpose of this procedure is to measure the jaw bones and remaining teeth. Then the dentist decides on the type and length of the implant to be used.

In this treatment method, local anesthesia is used and the duration of treatment varies according to the number of implants. The treatment is completed in an average of 30 to 90 minutes.

Implants generally consist of two stages, which are one-stage procedures and two-stage procedures. In the one-step procedure, the implant and temporary cap are attached. In the two-stage process, after the implant is attached, it is covered with the gingiva and left to heal, and then it is attached with a prosthetic head. In both cases, a temporary bridge is placed. It is expected that the lower jaw will heal within 3 months and the upper jaw within 6 months.

In order for the treatment to be successful, it is very important to make a correct diagnosis and to perform the cleaning and maintenance of the implant correctly. In addition, a suitable prosthesis must be made by the dentist, but excessive smoking and alcohol consumption negatively affect success. Depending on these factors, the success of the implant may vary.

What are the Advantages of Implant Treatment?

Implant teeth can be used safely and without problems for a long time. In addition, prostheses made on implants replace real teeth and create the most natural structure. In this way, healthy teeth are not touched.

Thanks to the implant treatment, the chewing strength of the person increases and the possibility of possible digestive problems decreases.

Generally, melting may begin in the bones in the area where there is no tooth. Bone resorption continues under the bridge body, total and removable prosthetic palates. Implant treatment stops bone resorption.

How Should Implant Dental Care Be?

The spaces between the implant and the adjacent teeth should be carefully cleaned. For this, dental floss and proxy brush should be used in addition to a normal toothbrush. It is also important to use mouthwash so that bacteria on the tongue and palate do not damage the teeth and gums. Finally, dental calculus and tartar cleaning should be done every 6 months or once a year.
