What is an Implant?
Implants are screws made of titanium that are used in the treatment of missing teeth and placed inside the jawbone. Dental prostheses are placed on these screws. The advantage of implant treatment over other treatments is that it does not damage neighboring teeth. In other words, neighboring teeth do not need to be cut. The implant acts as a tooth root and the patient can easily eat, talk, and laugh as if it is a natural tooth.
Who Can Receive an Implant Treatment?
Implant treatment is applied to individuals over the age of 18 whose chin and face development have been completed. Whether the jaw structure is suitable for implant or not is determined by X-rays taken before the treatment. Diabetic patients should take the disease under control before the treatment. Those who are on blood thinners should also stop their medication before treatment. People with osteoporosis can receive implant treatment after being treated with their disease.
How is Implant Treatment Applied?
Implant treatment is applied by giving the patient mild sedation. A detailed examination and x-ray are required before the procedure. The jawbones and other teeth are measured. There are two options for placing dental implants. In the single-stage procedure, after the dental implant is placed, a temporary header is attached. In the two-stage procedure, after the dental implant is attached, it is surgically covered with gum tissues and left to heal. The prostheses are attached after a while. In both cases, a temporary bridge is placed. The recovery period is 3 months for the lower jaw and 6 months for the upper jaw. New teeth can sometimes be placed on dental implants immediately. The patient can safely laugh and eat thanks to dental implants.
Zirconium implants are new generation implants developed to increase the resistance of implants made of titanium. They are used to increase strength, especially in the narrow jawbone. Zirconium implants are no different from titanium implants except for durability.
Zirconium is also used in tooth veneers. Its whiteness is close to natural teeth and it reflects light. For this reason, it is favorable in terms of aesthetics in addition to durability. Also, it does not wear out and leave a metallic taste in the mouth. It does not get discolored over time. Besides, it is not harmful to the body.
