What is Implant?
Dental implants are used as artificial roots with no teeth in the mouth or in case of one or more missing teeth. Thanks to the prostheses supported by dental implants, chewing is performed like your own teeth and also much more successful aesthetic results can be obtained.
In the case of single tooth deficiencies, healthy teeth can be made without the need for any treatment in neighboring teeth. Implants are made of titanium, a highly durable, advanced technology product accepted by body tissues. They are placed in an operation that lasts for half an hour under local anesthesia.
They are aimed to function smoothly in the mouth for a lifetime. Since the surfaces of the implants are processed through special processes, they form a special bond to the bone and hold mechanically and cellularly. It is the most ideal method to wait between 3-6 months for the connection to occur.
In recent years, there are researches about making prosthesis without waiting. In this method called immediate loading, many criteria such as the condition of the tissue, the implant site, the torque force applied during the placement, and the laboratory must be fully compatible with each other. Since minimal incompatibilities in these relationships will result in the loss of the implant, it is in the patient's interest to fully comply with the waiting times.
The reactions of implants applied to gravity cavities and healed crests under early loading were compared, and a 20% risk of loss in immediate loading was determined.
Who Can Have Implant Treatment?
Adults who have completed their puberty period
Those who do not have diseases that affect general health status People with diabetes, those whose diabetes is under control and regulated
Those who have enough bone tissue in the area to be implanted (if the bone tissue is insufficient, artificial bone can be used)
There is no upper age limit to make implants.
