Dental implant is one of the greatest developments of the last century. Although some patients may suspect dental implants, positive feedback from experienced patients is satisfactory and encouraging. To break the prejudices and to have a more systematic knowledge, firstly, as SOLVO Implants, we would like to give you the answers to the questions such as what is dental implant, what are the basic types of dental implant, who should prefer this operation etc.

What is dental implant?

In order to replace the missing teeth, dental implant is an artificial tooth root, which is placed inside the jaw and is mostly screwed to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. The dental implant is made of titanium or its alloys. It is not affected by mouth fluids and is designed to withstand the forces in the mouth. The health-friendly feature of titanium coated with some special materials has been increased and the recovery time is shortened. The human jawbone recognizes titanium as a part of the body. For this reason, implants are mostly made of titanium. The success rate of the operations is very high due to the high tissue compliance of the implants. Dental implants are applied to patients not only for the ones who has lost his single tooth but also for the patients with no teeth. For this reason, dental implants are widely used in dentistry. This application is performed without interfering with other teeth. The chewing sensation with the dental implant is closest to normal. In addition, the possibility of treatment without interfering with other teeth is a great opportunity for the patients. That is the reason why dental implant has become one of the most applied treatment methods in the century we live. It is important to follow the latest technology at these stages. In this respect, you can trust SOLVO Dental Implants company.

In what cases should a dental implant be made?

People with missing teeth experience many functional and aesthetic problems. First and foremost, they cannot chew effectively because of the missing teeth. Secondly, because the loss of teeth causes the mouth closure; it can cause problems in the jaw joint. In addition, due to aesthetic problems and speech disorders, people's self-confidence can be affected. When we think all of these issues, it is easy to say that implants are an ideal option for good oral health in people who have lost their teeth with periodontal disease, caries, trauma or any other reason.

In areas where teeth are missing, melting of the jawbone occurs over the time. The application of the implant following tooth extraction significantly reduces this risky melting. Dental implant is more protective than dental bridgeworks since it does not receive support from the other teeth. When a denture (such as a crown or bridgework) cannot be performed in cases where the most recent teeth are missing in the jaws, when a prosthesis is not preferred, or when the jawbone is completely fumed in the toothless mouths or the use of the total prosthesis is difficult and you have the discomfort prosthesis in the mouth, you should trust the dental implant operation.

Who can have dental implant?

A person with good general health status, healthy gums and bone in the jawbone to support the implants, good oral care has a high success rate in implant treatment. In some cases, the amount of bone is not sufficient for implant placement. If the dental bone loss is high, do not worry. In this technology, specific to your condition advanced techniques can be applied. In this way, providing appropriate bony structure can place implants.

Who cannot have dental implant?

  • Patients undergoing radiotherapy to the head and neck region
  • Young individuals who have not completed bone growth and development,
  • As smoking suppresses wound healing in the mouth and decreases implant success; individuals with too much smoking are not suitable candidates for implantation.
  • If appropriate conditions can be established by conducting consultation with physicians of individuals using systemic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, haemophilia and autoimmune diseases, bisphosphonates, corticosteroids or immunosuppressive drugs; implant can be applied.

How is the implant applied?

Implant application is usually performed in two stages. In the first stage, for a standard implant application that does not require further surgical application, the gum is carefully removed after anaesthesia of the region by local anaesthesia to the implant site. The bone is placed in place for the implant in accordance with the previously determined bone thickness and height. In the second stage of the implant operation, after the bone is placed in the bone, the femur is closed and the prosthetic procedure is started.

When can your prosthesis be made after dental implant placement?

If advanced procedures have not been performed, for osteointegration of the implants after placement of the bone, healing time is required between one to six months. With the development of the surface properties of the implants used nowadays, if the implant can be placed with sufficient force depending on the bone, temporary implants can be made according to its function. There are many factors that determine the time of the prosthesis on the implant. Your dentist will determine the correct timing after the detailed evaluation and your expectations.

After the dental implant operation, is there a risk of being rejected by the body?

Studies on surface properties have shown that, titanium is body friendly. For this reason, as we mentioned before, titanium has been used for a long time in implant production. The rejection of the implant by the body, e.g. tissue rejection is not possible. However, infections that occur during the recovery period and lack of attention to oral hygiene factors by the patients, such as excessive alcohol and cigarette consumption; may prevent the implant corporation with the bone. On the other hand, as SOLVO Implants according to our experiences, we should say thanks to regular dentist checks and good oral hygiene, you can extend the life of your high quality implants.
