Dental implants are highly advanced prostheses made to replace missing teeth by being fixed unto the jaw.
People with missing teeth often have several complaints which reduce the quality of life. Mastication is impaired in case of missing teeth, making diet and nutrition more difficult. Tooth loss also changes the closing angles of the upper and lower jaws, causing long term joint problems and chronic pain. Furthermore, due to the aesthetic concerns and possible speech impediments developing as a result of the missing tooth, loss of self-confidence becomes a major issue. Dental implants provide a permanent, practical solution to patients suffering from tooth decay, traumatic tooth loss and other oral health problems.
Missing teeth cause progressive and serious damage to the bones of the skull, due to bone decay and erosion. However, following a tooth extraction or an acute loss of tooth with an implant will significantly reduce this damage, and halt its future development as well. Since implants don’t rely on, or put pressure on the neighboring natural teeth, it’s widely accepted by dentists to be the best option. Dental implants are also the preferred option in cases where the missing teeth are the last molars on the row, where the patient has no teeth at all, or when the jaw bones have deteriorated to such a degree that it can not support a total prosthesis on its own. In conclusion, implants are used both to support the existing natural structure of the mouth, and to provide a practical and permanent solution to problems that may have dire consequences in the future.
Dental implants are performed in two stages. For an essential implant treatment, the first stage consists of preparing the implantation site under comfortable pain management using local anesthesia. The second stage is when the implant is given time, depending on the unique anatomy of the patient, for it to embed safely into the site. When the dentist is sure that everything is as it should be, the implant is exposed for the placement of the prosthetic component, thus finalizing the procedure which results in a permanent, strong prosthesis with a natural look and function.
Dental implants use biocompatible titanium, which is safe for MRI.
The operation lasts for about 20 minutes for each implant.
6-7 days must be spent in Istanbul for the full treatment
Allergic reaction against titanium is extremely rare
