Dental Implant

Dental Implant

Even though we take well care of our teeth, it is possible to have cavities, gum problems or tooth loss. Bridges and protesis were used as a solution for a long time until in 1960s they started to develop dental implants as a better alternative.

How is it done?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are made of titanium. After a removal of a tooth, first dental implant is placed which subsitutes for tooth root. Then, dental crown is placed onto the implant which stays for the original tooth crown.

Placement of dental implant that substitutes the tooth root is the first stage of the treatment. It is performed under local anesthesia and the patient does not feel any pain after. Once the implants are located, the healing and adaptation process starts. This process is 2 months for lower jaw and 3 months for upper jaw. Once the implants are secure in its place, dental crowns are placed and the treatment is over.

  6. 6
    What is the difference between dental implant and dental bridge?

    If you have healthy teeth next to the tooth that is to be removed, these neighbour teeth should be reduced and get smaller too in a classical treatment plan, which is called bridge. But in dental implant there is no need of this. Other teeth are not damaged.

  7. 7
    How long should I wait to have my implants placed after a tooth removal?

    From a scientific aspect, it can be divided into four options in terms of development of bone.

    • Right after tooth removal (Immediate)
    • 4-8 weeks after tooth removal in order to let tooth gum heal
    • 12-16 weeks after tooth removal to have partial bone healing
    • 16 weeks after tooth removal to have a complete bone healing

    It is preferred to implant directly after the tooth removal to shorten the duration but the doctor should consider the bone condition, any infection or complication risk before moving forward.

  8. 8
    Can I have dental implant instead of dental prothesis?

    Yes, you can. In this case the lower and the upper jaw should be considered separately. There have to be at least 6 implants for each jaw. In some cases it is preferred to have 8 implants as it is likely to give a better result. There is also a treatment which consists of placement of a prothesis onto 4 dental implants to secure it which gives good results as well.
