Dental implants are used as artificial roots with no teeth in the mouth or in case of one or more missing teeth. Thanks to the prostheses supported by dental implants, chewing is performed like your main tooth and also much more successful aesthetic results can be obtained. In single tooth deficiencies, healthy teeth can be made without the need for any treatment in neighboring teeth. Implants are made of titanium, which is accepted by body tissues and is an extremely durable, advanced technology product.
They are placed in an operation that lasts for half an hour under local anesthesia. They are aimed to function smoothly in the mouth for a lifetime. Since the surfaces of the implants are treated with special processes, they form a special bond to the bone and hold mechanically and cellularly. It is the most ideal method to wait between 3-6 months for the connection to occur.
In recent years, there are researches about making prosthesis without waiting. In this method called immediate loading, many criteria such as the condition of the tissue, the implant site, the torque force applied during the placement, and the laboratory must be fully compatible with each other. Since minimal incompatibilities in these relationships will result in the loss of the implant, it is in the patient's interest to fully comply with the waiting times. The reactions of implants applied to gravity cavities and healed crests under early loading were compared, and a 20% risk of loss in immediate loading was determined.
Who can have implant treatment?
For adults who have completed their puberty (puberty) period Those who do not have diseases affecting the general health status People with diabetes, those whose diabetes is under control and those who have a regulated diabetes have sufficient bone tissue in the area to be implanted (if the bone tissue is insufficient, artificial bone can be used) There is no upper age limit to implant.
• Proper Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
Proper case and implant selection
Current bone thickness and bone height
• Relationship of prostheses made on implants with opposite teeth
Sterilization of the room and instruments during the operation
• General health status of the patient (diabetes should be under control)
• Not using alcohol and smoking after the operation.
• Regular 3-6 month dental check-ups.
