The Best Treatment Method for Tooth Deficiencies Dental Implants


Implant Treatment

Dental implants are briefly artificial dental roots made of titanium, placed in the jaw bone, to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth.


Although titanium is a tissue-friendly material, dental implants made of titanium are subjected to various processes such as roughening, coating with different materials to cellular attachment to the jaw bone. After the dental implant is placed in the jaw bone, it forms a special bond with the bone and clings to the cell. When this attachment is completed (1-6 months), the process of preparing the prosthesis, which we call superstructure, is started. This stage is like making crowns or bridges on normal cut teeth.


Recently, it is the best alternative to replace natural teeth in case of teeth deficiency. It is the prosthetic rehabilitation method that gives the best results, especially when the need for support is not desired or the teeth to be supported in bridge requirements.


In addition, in the case of total toothlessness, dental implants are the most successful method that does not have an alternative to both increasing the retention of the total prosthesis and completely fixed prosthesis applications. Implant treatment is a form of treatment that can provide extraordinary successful results for patients and physicians when applied with correct diagnosis, sufficient knowledge, experience and equipment. Thirty-year statistical information shows that implants have a 5-year success rate of 95% if placed appropriately.


The Best Treatment Method for Teeth Deficiencies Dental Implants.

Dental implants are a long-lasting treatment method than fixed bridges using movable prostheses or adjacent teeth that sit on the gum. Facial surgeons place dental implants inside the jawbone. Many physicians would have preferred to have fixed bridges in single tooth deficiencies until today. But this method requires cutting neighboring healthy teeth. Sensitivity and nerve damage may develop as the enamel part of the tooth's protective layer is damaged during cutting. Caries and gum problems can be seen in the cut teeth, which have difficulties in cleaning because they are under the porcelain in time. The bridge will have problems such as cracking and breaking of porcelain at certain periods and the bridge will need to be removed and renewed. At this stage, various damages can occur in the underlying teeth.


Scientific works show that within five to seven years there is a loss rate of up to 30% in the teeth adjacent to the fixed bridge or removable dentures. As a result, cutting healthy teeth can cause problems with these teeth over time. Removable dentures are used in patients with a large number of tooth loss, where fixed bridge prostheses cannot be made. However, bone loss can occur with the pressure of these prostheses on the tissues in the edentulous areas. All these problems can be prevented by placing dental implants and prosthesis restorations.
