For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. Today, there is the dental implant method, which is a more reliable, more aesthetic, more permanent and ideal method.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. They provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable artificial teeth which are designed and tailor made compatibly with the natural teeth. Implants are tissue-friendly, titanium screws placed in the jawbone that act as a root for the missing tooth.
Dental implant insertion consist of two stages. During first stage the area in which the implant will be inserted is numbed with local anesthetics and the gum is carefully extracted. Appropriately to the size of the implant, a hole is opened in the jawbone and the implant is inserted therein. During second stage is the waiting the integration of the implant into the jawbone. After integration is completed, gum on the implant on the jawbone is opened, the part which mimics the tooth is placed and prosthetics process is started.
• Dental implants offer an excellent appearance. Dental implants look like the patient's natural teeth and give a natural tooth feel. They become permanent by integrating with the jawbone.
• Dental implants allow speech without the possibility of teeth slipping.
• In tooth loss, there is a gap where the root is. With the implant application, this gap is reconstructed like a natural tooth root.
• Dentures can slip and make chewing difficult to taste. Dental implants allow easy eating without pain, just like a natural tooth.
• The person treated with the beautiful appearance of dental implants feels better.
• With dental implants, there is no need to reduce adjacent teeth as in bridges.
• If attention is paid to oral and dental care, it can be used for many years.
The success rate of dental implants is as high as 98%.
Dental implant can be applied to anyone who has a good general health condition, has a sufficient level of jawbone and completed bone development. Patients who have enough bone to support the implant in their jawbone and who have good oral care have a high success rate in dental implant treatment.
The jawbone of some patients may not be at a sufficient level to place the implant. If the patient to be treated has excessive bone loss, first the infrastructure suitable for implant placement is provided using advanced techniques and then the implants are placed.
Implants cannot be applied to young individuals who have not completed their bone development and to patients who have undergone radiation therapy to the head and neck region.
Patients who smoke a lot are not suitable candidates for implant application. Since smoking suppresses wound healing in the mouth, it reduces the success rate of the implant.
Implant application can be performed to people with diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, hemophilia and autoimmune disease if their health conditions are consulted and agreed with their doctors.
Orthodontic treatment aims to correct the incompatibility of teeth with each other and among themselves in various ways.
One of the first concepts that comes to mind when it comes to aesthetic dentistry is "smile design".
Laminate Veneers, Zirconium Veneers and Full Ceramic Veneers are aesthetic treatments.
