Dental Implant are screw-shaped titanium artificial roots placed inside the jaw to treat missing teeth. Since they are made of titanium, they have high rate of biocompability. This increases the success rate of the treatments up to 100 percent. Dental implants are a treatment method that can be applied for all deficiencies from single tooth deficiencies to total (complete) edentulousness. The biggest advantages of this application; no teeth are prepaned around the missing tooth and also the chewing sensation in the implanted teeth is close to normal. Thus, the best quality solution for all patients who have experienced tooth loss is the dental implant applications, as the appearance and function are the closest to natural teeth.
In which situations is dental implant procedure performed?
Tooth loss due to various reasons creates aesthetic and functional problems in individuals. In addition, the lack of effective chewing after tooth deficiency causes nutritional problems and the displacement of the remaining teeth causes disorders in the jaw joint. This leads to the loss of self-confidence of individuals. Therefore, the most appropriate way to regain the ideal oral health after the lack of teeth and meet the aesthetic needs is the dental implant procedure.
The success rate of treatment is higher in individuals with a healthy mouth hygiene and especially in the bone that supports the implants in the jawbone. The jaw bone changes shape after tooth loss and may reduce to a certain extent. For this reason, it is important to start treatment for dental implants immediately after tooth extraction. In this way a more protective application can be made.
In some cases, the condition of the bone may not be sufficient for treatment. In such cases where bone loss is high, treatment can be started after a suitable substructure is prepared for bone implants.
Who cannot be treated with implants?
Treatment is not applied to individuals who receive radiotherapy to the head and neck region and to young people whose bone growth is not completed. For those with hemophilia, uncontrolled diabetes and autoimmune diseases, the doctor of the health condition in question is consulted and treatments can be made by providing appropriate conditions. Successful results are achieved in different geriatric (elderly) patients with papillary loss, tooth loss due to gingival recession or severe bone resorption. Since the important issue in dental implant surgery is post-operative follow-up, the health status of the patients is no longer a problem when necessary precautions are taken. For this reason, as Bursa Vizyon Dental Clinic, we follow our patients periodically at least once a year after implant treatments.
