Implant Treatment

What is Implant?

If you have teeth that you have lost for various reasons, implant treatment may be the solution to this problem. Implant treatment can be expressed as artificial tooth roots to replace your lost teeth in the simplest form. These artificial tooth roots are usually screws made of titanium alloy. The main task of this implant is to replace the missing tooth root. In this way, your fixed teeth can act as a real tooth without damaging the bone tissue.

How to Make a Dental Implant?

The dental implant is a robust, comfortable and reliable application. Prostheses made on implants form the most natural structure while replacing real teeth. In the process of completing the missing teeth, healthy teeth are left untouched. It has a much longer lifespan than all prostheses. Normally, the effects of tooth loss will be physiological as well as psychological. As a special application that replaces the natural tooth, the implant provides a definitive and healthiest solution to all kinds of problems caused by tooth loss.


Can implants be applied at any age?

Yes. Only bone development in young people needs to be completed. This occurs until the age of 16-17 in girls and 18 years of age for boys. There is no upper age limit for adults. It can be applied to people of all ages whose general health condition is appropriate. Older people need dental implants more because they lose more teeth and there are melting jawbones.

How Long Does Implant Treatment Take?

The duration of implant treatment varies from patient to patient. Because after the implant is accommodated, it should be expected to be placed in the jawbone and ossified there. Although the common period is 2-3 months, your doctor will determine the correct time and advance the treatment. However, the best part of this treatment is that you can continue your daily life directly two or three days after the implant is accommodated.

Who Is Implant Treatment Applied to?

In order to be implant treatment successfully applied, it is very important that the patient has completed bone development. However, the patient’s jaw structure needs to be suitable. If the jawbone is not enough, implant treatment can be started by eliminating this problem with various pre-treatments. Therefore, there is no upper age limit for implant treatment from the age that begins with the completion of bone development. Patients with chronic conditions should definitely inform the dentist and seek permission from physicians dealing with these chronic conditions before treatment.

Implant treatment is also possible for patients who use full mobile prostheses. Implant treatment can be performed even if you do not have any teeth. If your jawbones are sufficient, implant treatment can be started immediately, if not enough, after bone creation. In this way, you can get rid of the moving prosthesis and have teeth that look much more useful and natural.

Implant Treatment Stages

The stages of treatment are mainly as follows:

After oral hygiene of the patient is provided, treatment begins with the implant being placed in the jawbone. After the implant is placed, it is expected to bon in the jaw. This period varies from person to person. After the ossification period is over, prosthetic teeth are studied. The teeth are first placed in place and rehearsed. If the patient is satisfied with the prosthetic teeth, if there are no problems, these teeth are fixed to the implant and the treatment is completed.

If you consume soft foods by avoiding hot foods and beverages for the first few days after the completion of implant treatment, you will speed up the healing process of wounds. After the wounds heal, there will be no limitations on eating and drinking and you can move on with your life as if all your teeth were your natural teeth.


Why Implant Treatment?

Implant treatment was actually applied as an alternative to the traditional prosthesis procedure. However, compared to these traditional prosthesis applications, it seems to have very significant advantages. Because prosthetic teeth placed with implant treatment create a much more natural appearance than traditional prostheses. In this way, the patient can get a much more aesthetic and non-artificial smile. Since a tooth root is not applied in traditional prostheses, damage to the jawbone can be prevented with the load that will be on your jawbones over time. Because the implant, which acts as a tooth root, meets the pressure during chewing and protects your jawbones. As another effect of this, the patient who has undergone implant treatment can consume dry food much more easily and the speech function does not deteriorate.

How to Care for the Implant?

Implant treatment can be used for life with the right care. Therefore, it is very important that you take care of your oral care after treatment. Oral care that you need to do after implant treatment is no different from routine oral care if your doctor has not recommended anything different. You can also maintain your implants with routine oral cleaning procedures such as brushing teeth and using oral care water. You should remember that not disrupting these procedures is very important for the life of your implants. If your implant is at a difficult point to reach, you can provide the care of your implant with the methods recommended by your dentist.
