Instead of the lost teeth, the material is made of titanium metal, which is placed with the purpose of treatment and has no side effects to the organism, which acts as a natural tooth in aesthetic and function. The tooth on the implant mimics the natural tooth as aesthetic and function. Titanium is a metal that has excellent tissue compatibility and is used safely in many areas of medicine for centuries.
- In the absence of single tooth defect,
- When more than one tooth defect is removed by using fixed prostheses instead of moving prostheses,
- In the case of full toothiness, it can be applied to fixed prostheses instead of removable prosthesis (palate).
Why should missing teeth be treated?
The teeth in front of, behind and in front of the missing teeth cover the missing tooth area over time. The teeth on the opposite side of the missing tooth region and the teeth on the side of the missing tooth region are directed towards the missing tooth region. This disruption of their position in their mouths to their teeth results in gingival problems, tooth decay, and ultimately loss of these teeth in the teeth next to and in opposition to the missing tooth region. However, chewing activity is reduced and problems may occur in the jaw joint.
Can I see implant therapy?
Anyone who has a normal wound healing capacity, potentially healthy bone structure that can deliver oral hygiene, sufficient amount or sufficient amount can see implant therapy.
What are the benefits of implant application?
Implant is a robust, comfortable and reliable application. Prostheses made on implants constitute the most natural way to replace real teeth. In the process of completion of missing teeth, healthy teeth are not touched. As an alternative to natural tooth replacement, the implant provides the definitive and healthiest solution to any problem caused by tooth loss.
Is the implant applicable at all ages?
Yeah. Only in young people, bone development needs to be completed. This is 16-17 for girls and 18 for boys. There is no upper age limit for adults.
Can the implants stay in their mouth for the rest of their lives?
This depends on several variables such as general health status, daily care and cleaning of the implant. However, as with any other medical intervention, in principle, life-long guarantees are not possible.
The success of the implants requires good overall health, that is, adequate "healing potential", accurate diagnosis and proper cleaning and care of the implant. In addition, appropriate surgery and appropriate prosthesis must be made by a specialist. In addition, too much smoking and / or excessive use of alcohol will adversely affect success. Depending on the above factors, implant failure can vary from 90% to 100%.
Are implants rejected by the body?
Implants are made from biocompatible materials called titanium. For this reason, a "tissue rejection" can not be mentioned.
Is there a risk of cancer?
In the medical and dental world, there is no single example of dental implants leading to cancer.
Are dental implants applied for cosmetic reasons?
The main application area of dental implants is the elimination of missing teeth. Cosmetic enhancements can also be obtained when the tooth defect is removed.
Can a guarantee be given?
Scientific studies have shown that the implant success rate varies between 90% and 100%. However, as with any medical intervention, it is not possible to guarantee implants.
Is it an expensive treatment?
Implant applications require complex and lengthy procedures. They therefore require a higher expenditure than routine dental services. In a survey of patients who completed implant treatment, the patients indicated that they had received the investment they had made and would do the same if necessary.
Will I have a discomfort during and after the operation?
Operation can be done with local anesthesia and sedation without any pain and discomfort. After the operation there may be a slight pain or swelling that can be heard after any tooth extraction. These can be relieved easily with pain relievers and necessary precautions.
How long will it take to complete the placement operation and the prosthesis?
The duration of the surgeon can range from half an hour to several hours depending on the number of implants to be placed and the conditions of the patient. After the operation, it is expected for 3-4 months for osseointegration to fuse the implant with the bone. The prosthesis is then placed on these implants with a treatment that lasts several sessions. Prosthesis can be made without waiting for certain conditions
