Implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone and made to support dentures. Fixed or removable prostheses made on these long-lasting and life-long artificial roots, which are made to replace missing teeth, fulfill the patient’s chewing function and aesthetics.
An implant is an artificial tooth root placed in the jawbone to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth. Implant screws are structures that have a specific thickness and width. For this reason, the jawbone in the area where the implant is to be placed must have the height and width to accept this implant screw.
The quality of the bone is also one of the factors affecting the success of the implant. In addition, before the treatment and as long as the implant remains in the mouth, the gums must be completely healthy.
Bone structure is one of the most important factors affecting the success of the implant application. The person must have a suitable bone tissue for the implant. Detection of bone tissue should be ensured and then implant planning should be done. Before the implant application, clinical and radiological examination must be done.
If the bone structure and general health of the person are suitable for the implant, there is no upper age limit. Health is a much more important factor than age. . Implant application is not preferred only in very young patients whose bone development has not yet been completed.
The duration of the implant may vary depending on the number of teeth to be made. Today, with the developing technology, treatments are completed in a very short time. The pain after the placement of the implant is not different from the pain after normal tooth extraction.
In cases where the treatment is completed without any problems, the patients are so comfortable that they do not even feel the presence of the implants. During the implant application, general or local anesthesia can be used according to the patient’s preference.
Before the implant treatment and as long as the implant remains in the mouth, the gums must be healthy. In order to ensure the full integration of the implants with the bone (osteointegration), the loads on the implant should be minimized during the first 3-6 months, which is the healing period.
