Dental Implant

Dentcraft > Dental Implant

The dental implant is artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. They can be used in single or multiple tooth deficiencies and they are compatible with the body. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge, or removable prosthesis.

A removable prosthesis can be an option for patients with severe bone resorption if they are supported by 2 or 4 implants. With the help of soft tissues and implant support, this system will greatly increase patient comfort and quality of life. Under local anesthesia, implant treatment is performed in a short time with a simple intervention.

Antibiotics, painkillers, anti-inflammatory agents and antiseptic mouthwashes are recommended by your surgeon after surgery. Especially if you apply ice compresses, you will not have any problems such as pain, swelling, and edema. After surgery, the placed implant is expected to connect to the bone in 2-4 months. The average duration is 3 months. If bone graft material is applied, the waiting period can be extended up to 6 months. These periods may vary from case to case and according to bone density.

Osseointegration is the direct structural and functional connection between living bone and the surface of a load-bearing artificial implant. After completing this process fixed prosthesis can be applied. The completion of the prosthesis takes 7-10 days. If your bone is insufficient for implant application, a bone graft may be applied.

Immediat Implant

It is also called ‘’same day implants’’ or ‘’Teeth in a Day’’. Immediate load dental implants allow placement of a temporary tooth during the same appointment as your dental implant placement. Nowadays, thanks to the developing technology and surface properties, the immediate implant can be applied in the same session with the tooth extraction. The permanent prosthesis is applied after 3 months. This procedure prevents the bone to lose its volume and shortens the treatment time.

All On Four Implant

The term All-on-4 refers to “all” teeth being supported “on four” dental implants, a surgical and technique prosthodontics procedure for total rehabilitation of the edentulous patient Advantages are listed as

  1. No additional sinus augmentation and bone graft applications are required
  2. The treatment time is shorter than traditional techniques
  3. More comfortable for the patient
  4. Provisional teeth can be loaded on the same day.

Treatment planning is done with panoramic x-rays and dental volumetric tomography before the operation. Implants are placed with a simple surgery. Temporary teeth are loaded on the same day. Permanent prostheses are made after 3 months.

Once your implants and prostheses have been successfully applied, its advisable not to interrupt your routine check-ups every 6 months.
