Implants are screws made of titanium that are used in the treatment of missing teeth and placed into the jawbone. A dental prosthesis is placed on these screws. The advantage of implant treatment over other treatments is that neighboring teeth are not damaged. In other words, neighboring teeth do not need to be cut. The implant, which replaces the tooth root, performs the function of the tooth root. Implants placed in the jawbone allow biting, tearing, and chewing operations to be performed easily and support neighboring teeth.
Implant treatment is performed by giving the patient mild sedation. Detailed examination and X-rays are required before the procedure. The jaw bones and remaining teeth are measured. There are two options for the placement of dental implants. In the one-stage procedure, a temporary cap is attached after the implant is placed. In the two-stage procedure, after the dental implant is placed, it is covered with gums and left to heal. The prosthetic caps are then attached. In both cases, a temporary bridge is placed and the healing process is expected for 3 months for the lower jaw and six months for the upper jaw. Sometimes new teeth can be placed on the dental implants immediately.
Implant treatment is applied to individuals over the age of 18 who have completed their jaw and facial development. Before the treatment, it is determined by X-rays whether the jaw structure is suitable for the implant. In diabetics, the disease must be regulated before treatment. For those who use blood thinners, the drugs are discontinued before treatment. Those with osteoporosis can receive implant treatment after receiving appropriate treatment.
