What is an Implant?
Artificial roots shaped like a screw are called DENTAL IMPLANTS which are inserted in the jaw bone with the purpose of reshaping the lost teeth.
Almost all of dental implants of today are titanium based because titanium is the most tissue-friendly material which can be consistent with bone tissue.
What are the advantages of implantology ?
The damage that occurs as a result of cutting the neighboring teeth in classical bridge prostheses will be prevented in implant applications.
Individuals, who lost their chances of having a fixed prosthesis and got stuck with removable prosthesis, may have fixed dentures thanks to implant applications.
In cases of total loss of all teeth in upper jaw, more healthy prosthesis applications may be done which do not cause nausea because it does not cover all the palate and which do not cause any loss of taste.
Individuals whose prostheses are mobile due to resorption of jaw bone and thus not functioning properly, which may even lead to difficulty in speaking, may be supported with implants to make it stabile
Resorption in jaw bones which occur subsequent to tooth extraction is prevented majorly after implant applications.
Prostheses which function properly and provide more aesthetic results can let patients eat whatever they want, smile freely, laugh, kiss, and live a better social life with regained self-trust.
Who can be applied Implants?
Everyone who wants to replace a missing teeth and is within a certain criteria can be applied implants. One of these criteria is about the condition of the area of missing tooth. There must be sufficient bone height in the area for the implant to settle strong and healthily. Also, oral care must be well, gum problems and any other disease that may affect healing negatively should not be present. There is no upper limit for dental implant applications. Lower limit is the year growth and development is completed.
The most important criterion for implant applications is to have sufficient amount of bone in good quality in the planned site. Also, some anatomic formations must not be in a position to prevent insertion of the implant (you may get detailed information about regenerative and reconstructive, advanced implantology techniques applied for making the site of operation to be more proper).
Patient who will be applied implants must have high oral hygiene, not have oral gum diseases and any uncontrolled systemic disease.
How safe and efficient are the implants?
Dental implantology, extending approximately 30 years back in the first applications, is a method that can be applied with % 98 successes when practiced with good planning, perfect sterilization and surgical technique, well-made prosthetic application.
Recently conducted implant surface studies aim to increase the success rates.
What are the implants made of?
Almost all of dental implants of today are titanium based. Titanium is present in the nature as a reactive substance. Because it can fit to the substance which is used along with it, inflammatory or allergic reactions that occur against foreign substances does not occur with titanium. Titanium is the most tissue-friendly material known to us and it is used or every metal based formation inserted to the body.
Implant Dental Prices and Implant Dental Treatment
In order to regain lost teeth, screwed artificial roots placed inside the jaw bone are called implants.
Almost all dental implants used today are based on titanium, because titanium is the most tissue-friendly material that can be matched with bone tissue.
Success rates have been reported to be 98% when optimal conditions have been provided for implant treatments routinely in the world for many years. The implant that has to be understood from the success is to stay in the mouth for at least 10 years and longer.
The factors that affect implant success are not limited to the quality of the implant, the correct planning and the experience of the physician.
The contribution of implant patients to this success cannot be discussed.
There are 500-600 different brands of implants produced in the world. Most of them are simulated implants with simple copy method. It is not possible to understand the difference between high quality implants and low quality implants as patients. You can learn the brand of the implant that is said to be done to you, or you can ask another physician about this implant. An implant should be applied for many years and long-term successful case studies have to be done.
For long-term success of an implant, long-term past practices and case sharing should be available. The main reason for the difference in price between implant systems is due to the R & D studies and case studies. Implantation of the implant is of course positive. However, your physician should be able to get the implant material at low cost in order for the implant application price to be cheaper. As the cost of manufacturing the best implant systems in the world is not low, it is very natural for your dentist to determine the price according to this cost. In the case of your health, the cost you will pay for impregnated and long-termed implants should not be considered.
