Implant Treatment


Replacing tooth deficiencies has been one of the main occupations of the dentistry profession. Since the first ages of history, people have tried to overcome the chewing functions they lost due to missing teeth with artificial removable prostheses.


Removable prostheses hold in the mouth with support from other teeth and palates, and therefore they can easily be removed during the chewing process. This is a very important problem in terms of patient comfort. If this problem is eliminated with fixed bridge prostheses, fixed prosthesis applications are not always possible. Fixed prosthesis application is not possible with conventional methods in jaws that end without teeth. In addition, when applying fixed bridge prostheses, it is necessary to get support from the teeth and in this case, healthy teeth should be reduced.


However, this problem can be eliminated with titanium-based artificial tooth roots placed in the jaw bones. In this application called implant treatment, screws made of titanium are placed instead of missing teeth, which are long-lasting and can be used without any problems for life. Dental implants placed in the jawbone by a small surgical procedure by the dentist are expected to remain in the jaw bone for about 3 months after surgery and to fuse with the bone. After waiting for a sufficient time, a fixed dental prosthesis is prepared and adhered on the implant placed by measuring from the relevant area.


Advantages of implant treatment


Implant is a type of treatment applied without damaging neighboring healthy teeth. With implant treatment, the chewing function lost due to missing teeth is restored as close to nature. In cases where the bone in the area where the extracted teeth do not have root support, it melts and collapses. Dental implants, which are made without wasting time after tooth extraction, contribute to the preservation of aesthetics by preventing bone collapse.
