What Is An Implant?
Today, millions of people suffer tooth loss due to many reasons. Tooth decay, traumatic injury, or periodontal disease can cause to tooth loss. There are several treatments for missing tooth. For years dentures and bridges were used to replace a missing tooth. But, with enhancing technology dental implants are now considered the best treatment for missing tooth. Implants are artificial tooth roots used as a replacement for the missing one. The dental implant consists of three-part. A screw-like implant is inserted into the root. This also acts as an anchor for abutment and crown. An abutment is connected artificial crown and implant to each other and lastly crown inserted above abutment. Since all patients have different tooth color, crowns need to be customized for each patient. They look like and act like a natural tooth.
Who Is A Candıdate For Dental Implant Treatment
Firstly, patients with healthy gums and jawbones are good candidates for dental implants. Because of jawbones provide support for implants, there must be enough bone to hold the implant. Mostly, everyone with good general health can undergo dental implant treatment. But certain health conditions might be a problem for implants. Cancer patients who get radiation or chemotherapy treatment may have poor outcomes during implant treatment. Additively, patients who take some medications like steroids or immune system suppressing drugs are considered not suitable candidates. Heavy smokers, diabetes or osteoporosis patients, patients who have behavioral or psychiatric disorders, and people with parafunctional habits like clenching or tooth grinding are carried a higher risk of implant failing.
What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implant Treatment?
There are many benefits of dental implant treatment. First of all, patients have improved appearance after treatment. Artificial crowns look like a patient’s natural tooth and no one can tell difference between the implant and natural tooth. The other most important benefit of a dental implant is speech improvement. A lost tooth may be lead to speech problems. But, after dental implant treatment patients no need to worry about speaking. Also, there is a great improvement for eating. A missing tooth affects badly to chew. Dental implants not only look like as a natural tooth but, also function like normal tooth. People with dental implants eat their favorite food without worry.
What Happens During The Dental Implant Procedure?
At the beginning of the treatment, the plan must be individualized for every patient. The specific needs of each patient require different approaches. During the consultation process, Dr.Murat INCE and his team will perform an oral examination and discuss your dental implant goals. Using our advanced 3D imaging technology, he can capture dynamic images of your mouth to begin the planning process for the dental implant procedure. These images offer a comprehensive view of the mouth that allows you to thoroughly understand the treatment approach and results you can expect.
Typically, the process takes place in two stages, the surgical procedure followed by placement of the finished restoration.
After the planning session, an implant which is a screw-like titanium root is placed on the jawbone. In the next 3 - 6, month jawbone heals and grows around the implant. This creates secure and solid support for abutment and crown. During this healing process, a temporary crown might be embedded into the implant site. Patients can eat or speak normally with the temporary crown. Once the implant site healed completely abutment is attached to its place.
These crowns are created using digital dentistry tecniques 3D system for a precise, comfortable fit.
Because of the tooth must look like other teeth, the dentist creates a model of all mouths with all of the teeth, teeth type, arrangement, and bite. The new tooth will be created based on the model of the mouth. After the new crown is prepared it is placed on the top of implant.At Dentince Dental Clinic we prefer screw retained crowns&bridges which can be easily removed in case of any situation.
The dental implant procedure is designed to improve the appearance of your smile and restore full function of your bite.
