A Dental implant is a titanium alloyed artificial root placed inside the jawbone to save the patient from an edentulous condition maintaining an ideal form, function and aesthetic look. Since titanium does not interact with body tissues and is resistant against forces; it is used as an implant material. The failure ratio of these implants is next to none with correct diagnosis, planning and application with a life expectancy comparable to that of the patient. How much do implants cost? To get answers for your questions on all relevant matters including screw prices, you first need to be examined by an expert doctor.

In single tooth losses, the missing tooth can be compensated aesthetically without making any dental cutting or touching the adjacent teeth.

In case of multiple dental losses, implants avoid the need for long bridges or removable dentures eliminating all disadvantages of removable prosthetics. They facilitate an ideal aesthetic and eating comfort. Since implants prevent the thinning and shrinking of bone in the extraction site, they also prevent collapses and marionette lines around the lips due to aging.

The surgical time needed for a single implant is approximately 8-10 minutes. During surgery, the patient does not feel any pain or discomfort. On the first or second post-operative day, there may be mild aching but severe pain generally does not occur. Mostly, antibiotics and painkillers are used for up to 5 days. After a week, the sutures are removed. The duration for recovery and permanent bone union is approximately 2.5 months. During this period, we may choose to put the patient on provisionals. After that, permanent implant dentures are made. Denture making is a delicate but unproblematic process for our patients. Treatments are made by cutting-edge technological products and highest quality implant materials in our clinic in Çukurambar, Ankara.

Implants are artificial dental roots made to reinstate the aesthetic look and regain chewing function of missing teeth. Teeth are an integral part of facial aesthetics and yet may have negative effects in one’s social circle and also on human psychology. Besides, it is also known to cause nutritional and digestional problems along with issues regarding articulation. Contemporary treatment methods include not only bridge restorations or removable dentures but also implant dentures.

The aim of dental implants is to prevent tooth losses. The term and treatment modality of implantology is used not only in dentistry but also in many other medical fields such as orthopedics and cardiovascular surgery. One of the aims of dental implants is to replace the root function of the teeth. Once the implants achieve union and integration with the jawbones, artificial teeth can be made on them. For an aesthetic outcome, there are several criteria to consider when making implants. Oral and dental structures must be assessed as a whole for a healthy and an ideal smile. The implant plant must cover not only the implant site but also the rest of the mouth so that it would match with the natural teeth of the patient. After the smile analysis of the patient, intraoral operative planning is made. For an aesthetically appealing dental look, the patient’s lip build and gums are also important criteria. Having a healthy bone structure is a must for the implant to easily hold inside the mouth. Dentures over implants are made after impression-taking by the dentist in consideration of values such as bone density, volume, height and width.

The greatest advantage of implants is that they are more durable and safer compared to other treatment modalities. Besides, although not supported by other oral structures such as the teeth or other intraoral objects, implants do not cause any harm to other teeth. In bridge treatments made prior to implant treatment, the supporting adjacent teeth would be substantially damaged since treatment is based on getting support from sound teeth. With the dental implant being used commonly in modern-day dentistry, the treatment for single tooth losses cause no more damage to the adjacent teeth.

What are the Stages of a Dental Implant Treatment?

Examination and Planning

Implants are made with a multi-disciplinary approach. Since multidisciplinary approach is a team job, the oral surgeon and the prosthetist work in cooperation to offer the best solution to the patient. Planning is very important in implantology. A detailed oral examination should be made with an analysis of the existing as well as the association between the maxilla and the mandible along with the condition of gums. In treatment planning, the bone density analysis is of utmost importance for the success of implants. After this analysis, the doctor decides which treatment is applicable and starts the treatment process with minimal potential error. Implant treatment is not applicable only for those who have advanced and uncontrolled systemic diseases such as diabetes. Since they are made for dental root replacement, they merge with the tissue and won’t cause any allergic or toxic reactions.

Placement of Implants

Proper planning is one of the most important stages in implant treatment. Implant treatment should be done under hygienic conditions with an experienced team of experts and under local anesthesia. Except for special occasions, for those presenting with an insufficient jawbone in need of tissue supplementation, the long operation may be performed under general anesthesia or sedation.

Making of Dentures

After the operation there is a waiting and healing time for the implants to unite with the bone surface. This duration may vary depending on the patient’s bone structure and the implant used. When the treatment process is finished, the framework is prepared until the final denture is made provisionals are used to maintain functions and aesthetics after the operation.
