What is Implant Treatment? How is it Applied?

Dental implant, it is called an artificial tooth root, which is placed in areas with missing teeth or damaged teeth and allows a removable or fixed prosthesis to be made on it.

It is a known fact that missing teeth cause problems in terms of health and appearance.  Today, thanks to the developing technology, implant dental treatment was developed as an alternative to the traditionally used bridge and prosthesis treatment.

What is an Implant?

The implant, which is placed into the jawbone by using in the treatment of missing teeth, is the name given to screws made of titanium. A dental prosthesis, which is very similar to the real tooth, is placed on these screws.

The biggest advantage of implant treatment is that it does not damage the adjacent teeth. The implant applied in implant treatment acts as a tooth root. This way, you can eat, laugh and talk with ease.

At the same time, dental implants it also includes a surgical process in which artificial teeth that look and function very much like real teeth are placed in place of damaged or missing teeth.

How is Implant Treatment Applied?

Before the implant treatment, a detailed examination and x-ray must be taken.  The procedure is then started by giving the patient a light sedation.  Impressions of the jaw bones and other remaining teeth are taken for the procedure.  There are two methods for placing dental implants in a tooth:

In the one-step procedure, a temporary cap is attached after the implant is attached.

In the two-stage process, the implant is inserted and covered with the gum.  It is then left to heal.  Prosthetic heads are attached after the tooth has healed.

In both processes, a temporary bridge is placed.  There is a recovery period of 6 months for the upper jaw and 3 months for the lower jaw. Of course, this process varies according to the patient’s condition and the procedures performed. For example, in some cases, newly made teeth can be directly attached to the implants. With these implants, patients can safely eat.

Why is a Dental Implant Done?

Dental implants are placed surgically.  Since the titanium in the implants fuses with the jawbone, it does not slip like a prosthesis or fixed bridge. Therefore, it does not cause problems and does not cause bone damage.

In addition, dental implants do not rot over time. Dental implants are suitable for insertion in the following situations:

  • If you have 1 or more missing teeth
  • If you cannot or do not want to use dentures,
  • If you have a jawbone that has completed its growth,
  • If your mouth tissue is healthy,
  • If you have enough bones to fix the implants or you can do bone grafting,
  • If you do not have a disease that will adversely affect the bone healing process,
  • If you want to improve your speaking,
  • If you’re ready to endure the process for a few months.

What Should Be Considered After Implant Insertion?

After having a dental implant, you should pay attention to the following elements: You should not eat or drink anything for two hours from the moment you have the implant. Very cold or very hot foods are not consumed on the first day of implant placement.

The tampon placed to stop the bleeding is removed after half an hour. Bleeding in the form of leakage can be seen on the first day.  In order not to increase bleeding, you can take care not to shake and spit.

In order not to increase the swelling on the first day, you can apply cold to the area at intervals of five minutes. Medications prescribed by the doctor are used regularly.

If you are a smoker, you can take care not to smoke for a few days or to minimize smoking.

You should not forget your oral care during the healing process and after the prosthesis, and you should not delay your periodic doctor checks.

How Long Can The Implant be Used?

An implant applied in sterile conditions with careful planning, it can be used in a healthy way for many years, provided that oral care is done regularly and periodic dentist checks are not disrupted.

Smoking is one of the habits that negatively affect implant health. In addition, patients with the habit of clenching teeth are recommended to have a plaque after the application of their implant-supported prosthesis. The reason for this is to prevent uncontrolled and unbalanced clamping force from damaging the implant.

I asked a simple question about what the cost of crowns is. They refused to answer on WhatsApp. I know it's just preliminary information, but they didn't provide it.
