IMPLANT TREATMENT – LONG LASTING TREATMENT OF DENTAL DEFICIENCY: DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implant, also known as endoosseous implant, is a medical product that is inserted into the jawbone with small surgical operation in order to support crowns, bridges, removable dental prostheses and to use as fixed support in orthodontic treatments. Implant treatment is one of the applications we frequently perform in our Bursa Vizyon Dental Clinic. Dental implants are screws that resemble a tooth root made of titanium, a material compatible with the human body.
Implant treatment; can be performed in all patients with good general health status and bone development stage is completed in all patients after the necessary radiological evaluation is applied. Patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, blood pressure or cardiac problems, etc. may need to get approval from their doctors.
The first stage of implant treatment is the implant operation for implant placement. The implant operation is performed under local anesthesia and lasts approximately 20 minutes. In this operation, an intra-bone socket is prepared for the implant of premeasured length and diameter according to the volume of the jaw bone and then implant is placed. In cases where the jaw bone is insufficient, treatments such as augmentation (bone graft application) are applied to increase bone deficiency in the area to be implanted.
Surgically treated gums heal within a week and the sutures are removed. The second stage of treatment is the integration of the implant with the jaw bone. Depending on the health status of the patient, the region where the implant is applied and the bone structure, a waiting period of 2-6 months is needed. After the waiting period is completed, the implant is radiologically checked and the prosthetic stage is started and the prosthesis is planned according to the patient.
Since dental implant procedure is applied only to the area where we have missing teeth, it does not cause any wear on the other teeth. It has a longer life and it is healthier than applications such as bridge and prosthesis.
Dental implants are placed in the bone and osseointegrated into bone tissue, thus preventing loss of bone tissue.
Since dental implant treatment is performed under local anesthesia, no pain is felt during the procedure. With the medications that your doctor thinks appropriate for the period after the procedure, the healing process is carried out without any problem. After dental implant procedure, the patient should have daily oral care and 6-month dentist checks.
