New teeth restorations with Implants in Turkey require two visits, which is because; on the first visit you take implant, on the second visit permanent prosthetics like crown are fixed to the implant. In some implant treatments; temporary prostheses and temporary teeth can be prepared during the healing period. But that doesn’t change you need for a second visit to Turkey for the implant treatment.
Implants is an imitation of tooth roots. But the main goal is to get the support to carry the crown part of the teeth.
In all types of treatments of implant-supported prostheses, the prostheses are placed on top of the implant and supported by the implant body.
In this context; we will explain alternative options for your new teeth on top of the implant on your second visit to Turkey.
Implant-assisted prostheses are divided two:
- Fixed prosthetics above implant as like crowns, bridges, and hybrids
- Removable prosthetics on the implant as like dentures
Retained types of implant prostheses Types:
- Screw Retained Implant Prostheses
- Cemented Retained Implant Prostheses
What is dental Implant treatment:
In people who have lost some or all of their teeth and have adequate bone levels, implant-supported prosthetics are appropriate to use. Implants placed inside the jawbone act as an artificial tooth root.
In cases of a single tooth deficiency or edentulous jaws, the problems of the person can be solved with the implant and the dentures designed on it. The source of the problem is the lack of teeth. In this way, implants should be placed in the correct position to allow a healthy tooth to be placed on them. A healthy function and aesthetic cannot be expected with implants in the wrong position and position. Also, the task of each tooth in the mouth is different. It should be noted that there are aesthetic requirements to provide as much as the function of the missing tooth during Implant application. Treatment planning should be determined by three-dimensional X-ray analysis before the implants are placed, and they should be placed in appropriate positions on the prosthetic system. Planning for edentulous patients is becoming even more important. These procedures require precise and rigorous work from the initial planning stage to the delivery stage of the prostheses.
Implants can be of different types according to different characteristics of patients. It is decided at the first examination whether moving or fixed prosthetics should be made. When the implant is made with the types of prostheses determined by the physician according to the bone structure of the region where the missing teeth are, the impressions of the implant is taken with the materials. This impression is designed to provide the aesthetic images and functions of the missing teeth of the patient. When preparing over implant prosthetic templates are prepared to consider the future location of artificial teeth. Permanent prostheses are made and placed when there is no problem in rehearsals made in the patient’s mouth. Regular check-ups are performed to determine whether or not implant implants cause any complaints in the patient. Recommendations for use are given for removable dentures above the Implant.
Implant in single tooth deficiency
In the treatment of single tooth deficiencies with the implant, the implant forms a natural structure while replacing the missing teeth. Restoration is done by taking support from the implants placed directly in the toothless area in the prosthetics above the Implant. When missing teeth are completed, adjacent healthy teeth and jawbone are also preserved.
You damage at least 2 teeth when building a dental bridge for the missing tooth without getting an implant. A bridge prosthesis prepared by traditional methods is intended to replace the lost tooth and provide continuity of factors such as function, aesthetics, and phonation. To replace a lost tooth in bridge prostheses prepared in this way, two or more teeth need to be eroded.
In case of loss of a single tooth, the teeth on both sides of the missing tooth can be protected and replaced by a single implant. A dental implant is an alternative surgical procedure that involves damaging two adjacent teeth and shaving them to make a triple crown bridge. When choosing a treatment method, the duration of treatment and the difficulty in the selection of the procedure should not be considered the individual most appropriate and best long-term treatment that will ensure the success should be chosen. Shaving of the teeth may cause sensitivity, pulp necrosis, and eventually root canal treatment, and in later stages, under-veneer decays.
Dental implant treatment:
The single-tooth implant has the highest success treatment rate in completing the single tooth missings. Also, the cause of failure on dental bridges, less in implants; Depending on the endodontic cause, the risk of loss, decay, tenderness, and loss of neighboring teeth. For this reason, single dental implantation is a preferred treatment option, even if it is necessary to crown adjacent teeth.
Note: while the risk of endodontic treatment of a crown tooth is 3%, this risk increases to 15% for the tooth used as a bridge foot in the bridge treatment.
- Longer life than fixed bridge prosthetics
- There is no need for preparation (shaving of the tooth) on adjacent teeth.
- The risk of decay and tenderness in adjacent teeth is less.
- Oral hygiene is better. Food that escapes under bridges can cause a stench.
- The bone in the toothless region preserves itself.
- Better aesthetics can be achieved.
- There is a risk of failure (average 2%).
- It’s a high-cost treatment.
- Treatment time is longer.
In the absence of a single tooth, will eating and drinking during the waiting period after implant placement be a problem with aesthetic appearance?
If the tooth is missing, the patient can leave Myra Dental Center Turkey by inserting a temporary tooth in the day after the implant is placed in the front area of the teeth that appear when we laugh. If the patient’s tooth is pulled and the implant is made with his/her tooth, or if it has already been pulled; we make temporary teeth with specific materials. Patients can use these temporary teeth during the waiting period prescribed by the maxillofacial surgeon for bone healing. Temporary teeth are similar to neighboring teeth in color and shape. Patients can talk with these teeth and eat. Of course, since the implant is still in healing time, movements such as biting, which apply a lot of force to the tooth, should be restricted during eating.
Implant-Supported Fixed Bridge
Implant-supported bridge prostheses applications performed in multiple tooth losses, 2 implants can be placed on 3 or 4 membered fixed prostheses. It is a very healthy and comfortable treatment. It can be safely administered to patients at almost any age. It removes the patient’s concerns about aesthetics.
In Implant applications, titanium implants placed on the jawbone by a maxillofacial surgery specialist take on the role of the root of the tooth. After that, porcelain crowns that have the appearance of teeth are placed on the implant. This method can be easily applied for single tooth losses as well as for multiple tooth losses.
In the absence of more than one tooth loss in the mouth implant-supported bridge applications are used quite widely. Even if 3 or 4 teeth have been lost side by side in Implant-supported bridge applications, toothless cavities can be eliminated by applying a bridge over two implants.
After a sufficient number of implant applications are made to 3 tooth-deficient or completely toothless individuals, implant-supported bridge prostheses can be made. On average, eight implants in the upper jaw and six implants in the lower jaw are sufficient for Implant-supported porcelain bridge prostheses to be made. However, these numbers are average and can vary from person to person. The entire jaw bridge prostheses with implant support is a fixed prosthesis that is screwed or cemented onto the implants. It is not removed for daily cleaning, it is cleaned by brushing in the mouth like natural teeth. All jaw fixed bridges with Implant support can be made of ceramic as both zirconia and metal framework.
To make a fixed prosthesis on a completely edentulous mouth, at least how many implants must be made with bridges?
In patients without complete teeth, a successful outcome can be achieved with the bone condition and the required number of implants. Although it can vary from person to person. In ideal conditions 8 pieces of the upper jaw, 6 pieces of lower jaw implant application is sufficient. A total of 12 implants are sufficient for the completion of the teeth until the first big molars, which we call shortened dental arc concepts. A total of 24 teeth are made on these implants. Generally, complete toothless patients also see gum losses and pink ceramics are tried to provide aesthetic.
In completely toothless mouths, if the patients ‘ bone conditions, i.e. bone widths, heights, and quality are appropriate, if there is no preventative situation for the implant process in general health, 6 to 8 implants can be made for fixed implant implants. After oral and dental tomography examinations in Myra Dental Centre in Turkey according to the shape of the jaw structures of the patients, we decide the number and location of the implants together with the dentist.
Advantages Of Implant-Supported Bridge Prostheses
The most important advantage of implant-assisted bridges is to help you correct your mood, which is lost by aesthetic concerns. Other advantages are;
- To be able to apply without damaging healthy teeth,
- Having a natural tooth appearance,
- Aesthetic appearance,
- Long-lasting possibility of use.
These are the advantages that make implant-supported bridges attractive. The process of making a fixed bridge prosthesis over the implant begins with taking the above-Implant measurement. The process continues with the final shape of the bridge in a digital environment and preparing it in a laboratory environment. During the treatment period which lasts about 5 days, the dentist checks and rehearsals are performed, which lasts an average of two sessions. After the removal of the deficiencies in general examinations by the dentist, implant-supported bridges are fixed on the implants within 5 days at most in Turkey.
Although it has the appearance of a natural tooth since it is an artificial application, implant-supported bridges that require painstaking cleaning should be brushed at least twice a day. Staying away from hard and shelled foods and not neglecting its maintenance allows the top layer of porcelain to be used healthily for many years without being damaged.
Implant supported Hybrid prostheses.
Dental implants in Turkey have now found their place among the daily applications of dentists and are used with very high success rates. However, we are one of the most challenging conditions in implantology; aesthetic problems caused by irregular jawbone and jawbone resorptions are coming. For you; In cases where there is an excessive bone loss, this problem can be overcome by the construction of implant-assisted hybrid prostheses.
Prosthetics; It can be made of peek or zircon. It can also be used in metal-assisted porcelain if desired.
In hybrid prosthetics, implants are screwed into prosthetics. Also, all implants begin to support teeth like a single infrastructure basis.
We don’t fix new teeth by gluing them on implants. In this way, we prevent the adhesive from leaking into the implant environment.
In Turkey, we use hybrid prostheses both in full mouth implant treatment and partial, i.e. regional tooth deficiencies.
When you smile, the harmony of teeth (white aesthetics) with gum (pink aesthetic) is one of the keys to aesthetics. The ability to stick to the ideal tooth sizes in hybrid prostheses and the rest of the tissue deficiency can be removed with restorative material in gum color as desired, offering this treatment method to dentistry as an ideal solution. Sometimes the desired aesthetic can not be caught in treatments with the bridge on the implant.
Besides these advantages, it is also a very important factor that hybrid prostheses are not affected by the angle or different position of implants.
From time to time, implants can be placed in an angle disposition as well as a lack of planning, as well as necessity and request. The use of angled implants instead of an expensive, more time-demanding, and difficult sinus lift simplifies treatment.
The use of hybrid prostheses may be required during the restoration of implants that have to be placed forward to avoid anatomical structures such as maxillary sinus or mental foramen.
Hybrid prostheses can be made with at least 4 implants. The number of implants is determined according to the age, bone condition, and needs of the patient. In this way, All-on-4 implant treatments can be possible.
Compared to implant-supported moveable dentures, the advantage of hybrid prostheses is not only the patient’s comfort in terms of function. Also, hybrid prostheses require less repair in the long term. Also, it can be easily removed by the dentist due to a mechanical problem or in the event of a soft tissue inflammation, which is an important advantage.
As dentists, we found that patients are much more effective in ensuring stability and chewing ability than hybrid prosthetics on implant-supported moveable dentures. Also, patients can easily eat hard foods such as carrots or apples thanks to hybrid prostheses.
One feature that can be considered a disadvantage is the necessity of cleaning the surfaces of the prostheses facing the gum very well by the patient.
As a result, both hard and soft tissues lost with hybrid prostheses can be best fulfilled, and aesthetically and functionally satisfying results can be obtained with new teeth in Turkey.
Hybrid prostheses require at least 4 implants for adequate durability.
What Is The” All On Four ” İmplant Technique with Hybrid Prostheses?
The all on four systems were first developed in 2003 in Malo Clinic. The system, which is not as old as the Implant date, is widely applied today and makes many patients happy. The indication is very important because the system contains a small number of implants.
It is the process of making a fixed prosthesis on 4 implants placed at an angle in patients with excessive bone loss, who cannot use prosthetics and who want fixed prosthetics.
Another philosophy of treatment is the insertion of temporary teeth into the patient during the day the implant is made. Good results are obtained as a result of serious and systematic team studies. On your first visit to Turkey for dental implants; Implants are placed during 5 days of treatment and you can get your fixed temporary teeth.
How Is Treatment Done With All On 4 Implant Technique in Turkey?
Pre-treatment planning requires a lot of care. All requirements and limits for standard implant applications apply. The general health of the patient, intra-oral conditions is important. How many years the patient is toothless, the proximity of anatomical regions to the bone surface plays an important role in planning.
Anatomic structures are examined in three dimensions with dental tomography. If necessary, a guide system is prepared to guide the implant application. If there are existing teeth in the mouth and the implant will be placed after the teeth are removed, the size of the teeth will be taken before the operation. At the appropriate closing of the biting relations of the existing teeth, preparations for the construction of the temporary prostheses are started. Implants are placed, temporary prosthetics are inserted on implants, and the first step of treatment is over.
All on 4 systems are ideal for those who have been left or will remain without full teeth, albeit temporarily as soon as the operation is done. After the operation, the dentist’s recommendations should be paid attention to the letter and the drugs should be used regularly. As with any treatment, oral care is the most important issue. Eating hard foods other than soft foods with temporary dentures can cause problems with implants.
If an abnormal condition or problem occurs, the patient should contact the dentist. The length of time he will use the temporary prostheses may vary from case to case. It is known that it should be expected for at least 3 months.
What Are The Advantages Of The All On Four Technique?
The biggest known advantage is that the temporary prostheses are made on the day the implants are placed. There is no such thing as toothless.
There is no condition such as waiting for sinus surgery and bone formation that requires advanced surgery. Implants are placed in one session. The total treatment time is shorter.
The duration of surgery is shorter in ideal conditions than other fully fixed implant surgeries.
The number of dental implants used is less; than the corresponding price is more appropriate. The prosthetics that will come on are almost the same price for a full set of crowns in Turkey.
It is more aesthetic because it allows the design of a smile and is applied to the whole jaw. Pink porcelain for the gums allows work.
It is easy to maintain and clean when done with hygienic techniques.
Suitable for those who cannot use the removable dentures.
It does not cover the patient’s palate, it does not block the sense of taste, it is easier to get used to.
It doesn’t move, it’s steady.
For those with time problems, the number of appointments is less.
Retained types of implant Prostheses
There are two different designs in the form of implant-supported crowns being glued to the support structure or connecting the support crowns complex with screws. And in these designs, there are fabricated angled support structures. Restorations include crowns that are screwed into the implant support complex.
The crown, which sits passively on the support aligned on the implant, is screwed by the entryway created on the chewy surface on the side of the palate or posterior region.
In such restorations, the mouth part of this entryway after the final compression is closed with a composite filling. Prosthetics with screw holders allow control of the superstructure by removing it. Glued restorations require a vertical distance of at least 5 mm for retention and resistance, especially in the posterior region. Overloads can be arranged with the low dimensions of the supporting structure and the screw. Cement now eliminates the risk. This type of structure can be seen as an advantage in the absence of cement between support and crowns. Again, this type of restoration allows the support screws to be re-compressible and evaluated. It can be considered as a possible complication that the screw entry path created causes breakages in the face of forces, as it disrupts the continuity of the ceramic. In glued crowns, there are more complications than screw restorations. The superstructure is more passive and consists of more suitable axial loading.
Screw Retained Implant Prostheses
An implant is a form of the prostheses in which the screw holes are opened directly into the mouth and these cavities are closed with fillings. It is also popularly known as the screw tooth.
In traditional prostheses, which is attached directly to the implant, since the prostheses cannot be removed. Even if you have been treated with care during bonding, cement (glue) residues can escape into the gum and go towards the implant surface. The glue residue will damage the gum, bone, and therefore the implant. The most important reason for long-term failure in Implant treatments is known as cement residue. In screw Retained implant prosthetics, the bonding process is either not performed at all or is performed outside the mouth. Even if it is done in the mouth, the prostheses can be removed so that it can be cleaned easily.
The biggest advantage of the teeth with screw Retained implants is that the crown can be easily dislodged. By reaching the screws through the screw holes in the mouth, the crowns can be easily dislodged. However, cemented prosthetics repeatedly try to dislodge the cement by cracking or breaking with blows that may disturb the patient. Often this is not possible and it may be necessary to remove the prostheses by cutting it. In this case, the prostheses have to be made again by starting from scratch. As a result of the force applied to dislodge the dentures, the implants can lead to fractures in the screw and neck area or to extra fractures in the prostheses. Porcelain casts that may occur in teeth with screw Retained implant, dentures, fractures, etc. In cases of repairable problems, the prostheses can be easily repaired by removing it. Screw Retained implant crown allows small additions to the underbody cavities formed due to the gingival pull in the mouth over time.
Screw Retained implant crowns are easily removed in cases where there is too much pressure on the gums. And the problem is solved by etching. In cases where the implant crown is performed as a neighbor to the natural tooth, on average, fifty percent of the natural tooth and implant contact problem occurs in 3 years. The food that is eaten comes between the tooth and the implant and gets stuck. In prosthetics with screw Retained implants, the prostheses are easily removed and the contact problem is solved.
From time to time, loosening occurs in the screw that connects the implant with the rests made on the implant, which we call abutment. While it is not possible to tighten the screw without removing the prostheses in the cemented prostheses, the problem is solved very easily in the screwed teeth. In traditional methods, tightening the screw more than the values stated by the companies to avoid the problem of screw loosening. This may cause the implant to rotate and dislodge within the bone. Or it can cause the screw to break. However, if you tighten even less than necessary in screw teeth, it will be very easy to tighten the screw again when the problem occurs. It is possible to clean the prostheses and mouth by removing the screw prostheses at certain intervals.
Fixed dentures are made with fewer implants thanks to the screw Retained implant systems, which are called all on four etc. Names and are made on only 4 implants. Thus, increased patient comfort is provided. In general, small molars in the mouth and the amount of bone in the front area is higher quality and harder, while there is not enough bone in the large molars region. In these systems, the implant is made to the area where the healthy bone is located and the prosthetic is completed by making extensions to the back which we call the wing. In this way, a further surgical treatment called sinus lift (sinus lift), bone powder addition (graft), etc. There is no need for procedures. In cases where the implant cannot be placed immediately after these advanced surgical procedures, the process is prolonged and an extra 6-8 months can be expected. However, in these systems, the process is shortened because the implant is almost there where the healthy bone is located. The reduction of advanced surgical transcendence and the reduction of the number of implants also provide advantages in terms of the total cost of implant treatment.
Screw dental prostheses require more precise measurement and laboratory processes.
The decals used in the prosthetic phase are a little more costly.
It can’t be applied in all cases. For example, in cases where the screw holes will come out of the outer surface of the front teeth, aesthetic problems will occur because they can not be made. In these cases we prefer to use Toronto-type prosthetics as Myra Dental Center Turkey.
Cemented Retained Implant Prostheses
The Implant consists of two main parts. The first is the screw piece placed in the jawbone and artificial the root of the tooth. The second part is the upper part called the abutment, which is screwed into the implant. The abutments are the parts of the upper structure of the implant that we make by giving the form of shaved teeth.
In general, implant brands produce” abutments ” as standard in various diameters and lengths. However, these various diameters and lengths do not exactly mimic the shape of the gum, which is different for each person.
We, as Myra Dental Center, use Straumann implants. Variobase, a patented abutment design for Straumann implants, has the most advantageous design as an implant-crown option.
The custom abutment is a personalized implant abutment type made of titanium to maximize aesthetics designed. This abutment with 3-dimensional special programs according to the angles of the implants, the shape of the patient’s gums, and the relationship with the surrounding tissues and the veneered tooth to be made. Designed following the shape and structure of the gums of each patient provide for a more aesthetic appearance. Since it is made according to the shape of the tooth, it provides a balanced distribution of forces and extends the chances of success and life of the implant.
According to the shape of your gums the tooth under the veneer production prevents the accumulation of undesirable substances such as food scraps and provides an easier way of cleaning the teeth.
Cementation is the most commonly used method in dental implantology. In some cases, implants may be placed bent because of the proximity to anatomical tissues, rather than the bone condition that existed during implant placement. For screw Retained implant crowns, the screw hole may be located in the visible area due to this disadvantage. To compensate for the negative effects of incline faulty implants, cement Retained implant crowns are used. Screw Retained implant crowns require very precise workflow. Because there is a space between the joint and reconstruction, the crown is more easily seated. The absence of any screw access holes, and thus the presence of a more robust biting surface makes biting somewhat easier to control.
However, the main disadvantage of cement Retained implant crown is that excess of adhesive material gets under the gum. The non-cleaning adhesive substance peri-implant leads to the development of mucositis and peri-implantitis. To avoid this situation, it is necessary to remove excess cement residue.
In the event of any fracture or problem, it is difficult to dislodge the cement Retained implant crown. Crowns are often cut to avoid damaging the implant. Therefore, crowns must be re-manufactured.
With better aesthetics, less refraction is achieved in occlusal material. Cementation as a conventional method of prosthetic applications and easier removal of cement failures can be shown as an advantage. Screw retention, additional components, clinical, and laboratory operations increase may also be the preferred reason for cemented crowns. Restoration with cement Retained implant on specially made supports allows us to adapt wrongly made implants and treat them like natural teeth. Once the crown is placed, it helps stabilize and heal the surrounding tissues. The fact that the crown does not have to be inserted and removed often causes gingival trauma to be reduced to a minimum. When special supports with screw Retained implant crowns are used. The interproximal crown margin must be positioned very little below the gingival margin to allow the cement to be completely cleaned. Otherwise, the health of the soft tissues is at risk. During Implant placement, the support provided by the manufacturer is fabricated and angled at different angles to resolve problems due to improper angulation or bone structure.
FAQ About Dental Implants
QuestioIs the placement of the implant in the jawbone a painful procedure?n
When the Implant is applied to the jawbone, patients are given a local anesthetic, and patients do not feel any pain during the procedure. In addition to this, implant treatment can be performed under general anesthesia in patients with dental phobia or in patients who are afraid of needles.
Is the application process of the prostheses over the Implant painful? Is anesthesia applied?
The prostheses is not a procedure that requires local anesthesia when applied, such as implants. The application of the prostheses, the preparation stages of the prostheses, or the impression procedures do not cause any pain in patients.
Does smoking affect implant treatment?
Smoking affects our general health, as well as oral and dental health, negatively affects. In people who smoke, the heat of smoke and chemicals can delay or stop the healing of the oral tissues as they cause vasculature disorder in the oral tissues and therefore the tissues cannot be fed with enough blood. This can lead to loss of the implant or teeth.
Is the implant prostheses made following the natural tooth structure?
Implants are manufactured from biocompatible materials that mimic natural teeth. The morphologic structures of the natural teeth of the patients can be restored with these materials to their resistance to chewing forces.
How much more time should the patient come to the controls after the implant procedure is done?
Patients should go to checkups once a year, in some cases every six months, whether they experience problems or not. In these controls, the patients ' intra-oral and Radiological controls are performed and any loss of bone or pathology formation, whether the patient should clean the prostheses adequately. The gum health is examined and the procedures to be done are done if there is any. In this way, patients ' prosthetics and implants are provided for long-term use.
What should be considered on New teeth with İmplants in Turkey?
The new teeth are placed on top of the implant, supported by the implant, fixed or moveable denture is known as. It is appropriate to use implant-supported prosthetics in people who do not have teeth and have adequate bone levels. Usually, after the operation, some applications should be performed to control the small bleeding conditions that occur. If supports such as dentures are used, they should not be used for a while after the implant. If any discomfort or swelling has occurred after the operation, ice bags should be applied. The swelling of the gums for some time can be considered normal and the symptoms of discomfort with simple applications disappear over time.
What should be considered after the implant is inserted?
Paying attention to some issues after the application speeds up the healing process, while negative attitudes and attitudes cause problems. Any tobacco product should not be used after the operation. When tobacco is not released, the body is likely to reject implants. This causes the implant application to fail and oral health to deteriorate. If anesthesia is used during the operation, nothing should be chewed until the numbness in the mouth disappears after the operation. If there is any play or looseness in the reactions above the Implant, the doctor should be informed about it. It should be checked by the dentist to see if the implant fits fully in place. Those with hard chewing behavior and tooth grinding problems should be cautious about this. Dental floss, suitable brush, and cleaning materials should be used in consultation with the dentist. It is objectionable to use the wrong products in cleaning. After treatment, the mouth should be shaken with salt and warm water during the day. Oral hygiene is very important in terms of infections that are likely to occur after application.
Can the Implant be applied for all dental deficiencies in Turkey?
Either the patient doesn't have any teeth in his mouth, we call it "total toothless." It is either "partial toothless," meaning that there are some teeth, there are no teeth, or there is a lack of one tooth. In the absence of a single tooth, it is more appropriate to get implant there than to cut the two teeth next to the bridge. Getting dental implants in Turkey is the best option in cases of missing teeth. If you do not have a condition that will interfere with implant treatment, the implant is the most logical alternative.
Can Implants be made to replace every missing tooth in Turkey?
If bone tissue is sufficient, implants can be made in each region. It doesn't matter if you lack teeth on the front, back or side. But usually, the lower jaw teeth are pulled very early, there is more bone loss when the implant can not be made. Especially in the very elderly, only the front side, lower jaw, and upper jaw by making two implants denture can be made. For example, you may notice that the elderly may have prosthetics while talking or eating. These problems can be solved with implants. When choosing dental implants in Turkey, pay attention to the experience of the dental center and the brand of the implant used.
Today, the implant for the treatment of missing teeth is the only substitute treatment. All other treatments are maintenance treatment. Other treatments are aimed at repairing the tooth or tissue that is reduced. Substitutes are performed with a new tooth root in the treatment of only dental implants. We recommend implant therapy for the replacement of new teeth in Turkey.
Why should implant rather than bridge be preferred in the completion of missing teeth?
The most important advantage of having an Implant is that it stops melting in the jawbone. As long as our teeth remain in existence, there will be no osteoporosis in the jawbone, or very, very little. After the implant is made, bone loss is significantly reduced. Unfortunately, bone loss can occur in the spaces where there is no tooth under the bridge. When the Implant is made, there is no need to cut the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, which is another advantage of the implant.
Although bridge treatment can be done in a shorter time, it is an alternative with more complications in the long term. Implant treatment is a more affordable and long-lasting treatment when evaluated for the long term.
Tooth implant in Turkey, requires 2 visits for our patients; however we prefer implant treatment to the bridge.
Is it possible to use an implant for life?
If people take care of their teeth and mouth care very well, if the implants provide hygiene, we can say that the implants are longevity. Over time, however, there may be wear in the superstructure within 7-10 years. The solution of this is very simple; only the crown is removed and replaced. But the infrastructure will remain in the mouth for life as long as the patient pays attention to oral hygiene and comes to their control.
