Regain Your Confidence with the Implant Treatment

How is Implant Treatment Applied?

The implant treatment procedure is an effective solution for compensating for tooth loss. The implant application consists of the following steps:

  1. Evaluation: Initially, the dentist will assess whether you are a suitable candidate for implant application. Your oral and dental health will be examined, and X-rays will be taken.
  2. Preparation: The dentist will make the necessary preparations in the area where the implant tooth will be applied. Additional procedures such as gum recession, bone grafting, or surgical treatments may be required at this stage.
  3. Implant placement: The implant is a titanium device shaped like a screw placed between the gum and the jawbone. The dentist positions the implant in the appropriate position and ensures it integrates with the bone.
  4. Healing process: A period is awaited for the implant tooth to fuse with the bone. The healing process may vary from person to person. Temporary prostheses can be used during this period.
  5. Temporary and permanent prosthesis: When the implant has fused with the bone and the healing is complete, a permanent prosthesis is placed instead of a temporary one. The prosthesis is placed on the implant to compensate for tooth loss aesthetically and functionally. Implant tooth application provides an effective and permanent solution in cases of tooth loss.

Post-Implant Tooth Care Tips:

  1. Use of toothbrush and dental floss: Use a toothbrush and dental floss regularly to clean your implant. Opt for a soft-bristled brush to reduce the risk of damaging the implant tooth.
  2. Mouthwash: Use mouthwash to prevent bacterial formation in the mouth. Use mouthwash regularly to reduce the risk of infection.
  3. Regular check-ups: Visit your dentist regularly for healthy care. Your dentist can check the condition of the implant tooth and take necessary precautions.
  4. Avoid hard foods: Hard foods can damage your implant. To protect your implant, consume as few hard-shelled fruits or hard foods as possible.
  5. Quit smoking: Smoking can affect the healing process and success of the implant tooth. Quitting smoking can accelerate the healing process of your implant and help you maintain healthy oral health.

Types of Implant Tooth Prostheses and Varieties:

Implant prostheses are prostheses that enable individuals with missing teeth to regain their dental functions and aesthetic appearance. They are usually fixed to implants and placed on the gum. Common types and materials used in implant tooth construction include:

  • Single dental crowns: Used for patients with a single tooth loss. They are usually made of aesthetic materials such as ceramic or porcelain.
  • Dental bridges: Preferred for individuals with multiple tooth loss. They are fixed onto one or more implants and anchored with the support of neighboring teeth.
  • Full dentures (Fixed and Removable): Used in cases where all teeth are missing. Fixed full dentures are screwed directly onto implants, while removable full dentures are placed using a connector attached to the implants.
  • Hybrid dentures: Made of durable materials such as metal alloys or titanium. They are usually placed on full dentures and provide better attachment to the jawbone.
  • Movable implant teeth: These are movable prostheses placed on implants and sitting on the gum. They are made using aesthetic and durable materials.

 These dental prostheses are usually made of durable and biocompatible materials such as ceramics, porcelain, metal alloys, titanium, etc. While emphasizing aesthetic appearance and durability, it is also important that they are biocompatible as they will remain in the mouth for a long time and should not affect gum health. It is recommended to make a detailed evaluation before deciding which implant prosthesis to use. Therefore, consulting a dentist specialized in implant tooth is the best option.

Dental implants can endure for approximately 25 years, a significant contrast to the typical lifespan of bridges and dentures, which averages around 10 years.

Actually, patients may experience some pain during dental procedures, but dentists typically use local anesthesia to mitigate it. However, once the numbness wears off, patients may feel mild discomfort.

The types of dental implants available include endosteal implants, subperiosteal implants, and zygomatic implants.

Endosteal implants are placed directly into the jawbone, while subperiosteal implants sit on top of the jawbone underneath the gum tissue, offering alternative solutions for patients with varying bone conditions. Zygomatic implants are a type of dental implant that are longer than traditional implants and are anchored in the zygomatic bone.
