Artificial tooth roots for stable dentures.
The most important development in dentistry in the last 50 years are implants.
You have lost one or more teeth and you want an inconspicuous fixed prosthesis without having to whip up healthy teeth for a bridge? What is an implant? An implant is an artificial tooth root. And just as the tooth can support a crown, bridge or denture, the implant can also be used variably. Imagine the way an implant works, like a normal dowel. As the dowel is sunk in the wall, anchoring the implant in the bone. The implant is hollow on the inside and can be equipped with a wide variety of abutments. The implant must be allowed to grow in the bone for several weeks before the desired denture can be fixed. This implant denture set is solid, usually inconspicuous and daintier than conventional solutions, very good hygiene and gives you almost the feeling of own teeth back. “Implant: is the artificial tooth root made of materials that are suitable for the body of the person sitting on the jawbone to restore the function and appearance of teeth lost for any reason.” Popularly known as screw teeth, screw teeth, implants or attachment teeth are screws, much like the roots of our teeth. They are made of titanium or zirconium. Although it is usually a screw, it is very important to be firmly attached to the bone tissue. Lately, it has come to the fore with a larger groove system.
I would like to draw your attention to a few issues that we need to be aware of in the treatment. first; If our teeth are removed for any reason, whether due to tooth decay, gingivitis or gingivitis, there is no acute inflammation of the tooth. We prefer to pull the tooth and the implant as the same session.
The reason is that the teeth become resorption of the bone. This is an aesthetic problem, especially if the implant is not performed for a long time. This is especially important for anterior teeth. It is important to implant the tooth as soon as possible. If there is an acute infection; Also in such cases should be waited for the healing of bone tissue, then the treatment should be performed. Treatment with dental implants is a proven treatment method. If our general health is good, it can be done for everyone. The percentage of success in these treatments is quite high, 97-98% can be rated as almost 100%. However, in some exceptional cases, especially in patients with bone tissue, connective tissue, for example in patients with Paget’s disease, for example in persons who have received high doses of radiation for treatment, there is a further risk that the risk of failure is high. Patients may still want to. This risk should be explained to them clearly.
Who can get an implant?
Implant application, which has the highest success in dental treatment, is recommended to patients after performing the required tests. For those who ask who can get an implant, it is for people who are not at risk except diabetes, heart disease and dialysis. Patients with such conditions may also benefit from post-test treatment. The people who can be treated easily are those who do not have diseases such as tooth inflammation.
It is widespread that implant treatments in patients are very long. These times have been shortened with changes made in recent years by scientific studies and surface improvements. By producing one-piece implants for our patients who want their teeth immediately, we can now attach their teeth without waiting (on the day of their manufacture). Wearing these teeth on the same day is very important for soft tissue shaping around the treatment area. These are typically temporary teeth. After a certain time (3-4 months) permanent teeth are installed.
What is important here? for bones of sufficient grade and quality (good bone density); Implants can be worn the same day after wearing the teeth. If not: After the treatment it is necessary to wait between 2 and 6 months depending on the condition, at least 2 months. If the conditions are favorable (if there are enough bones in the area); In the morning they come out of the house without teeth, and on the same day both implants can be made and go home with nacreous teeth.
