Implant Treatments: The Best Choice for a Healthy and Lasting Smile

Implant Treatments: The Best Choice for a Healthy and Lasting Smile

Hello, I'm Dr. Onur Ademhan. 
As a dentist and oral surgeon, I take great pride in using the latest technologies and treatment methods available in the field of dentistry to maintain and improve your oral health. Today, I will share information about dental implants. Implants are a highly effective and long-lasting solution for patients with missing teeth. In this article, we will discuss what implants are, who they are suitable for, and how the treatment process works.

Dental implants are artificial roots made of titanium that are used to replace missing teeth. These implants are surgically placed in the jawbone and integrate with the bone, creating a stable foundation for prosthetics. By attaching crowns, bridges, or prostheses to the implants, natural-looking and fully functional teeth can be obtained.

Implants are an ideal treatment option for individuals with good overall health and sufficient jaw bone. Implant treatment may be preferred in the following cases:

Single Tooth Replacement: In cases where an individual tooth is absent, it can be restored with the placement of a crown on an implant.

Replacement of Multiple Teeth: In instances involving the absence of multiple teeth, the restoration can be done through the use of bridges fixed onto implants

Complete Tooth Loss:In situations where all teeth are absent in either the upper or lower jaw, fixed or removable dentures can be placed onto multiple implants.

Implant Treatment Process: Implant treatment consists of several stages and usually takes several months. Here is the step-by-step implant treatment process:

Inspection and Planning: Before beginning the treatment, a thorough assessment is conducted to evaluate a patient's needs and general health conditions. Once the assessment is complete, a specialized treatment plan is created based on the patient's requirements. The precise locations for the placement of implants are determined using advanced imaging techniques such as X-rays and 3D tomography, ensuring a thorough and accurate approach to the procedure.

Surgical Stage: Implants are placed in the jawbone during a surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. A healing period of 2-6 months is then required for the implants to fully integrate with the bone.

Temporary Prostheses:
During the healing period of the implants, temporary prostheses are often utilized to address both aesthetic and functional requirements.

Abutment Placement: After the implants integrate with the bone, connection parts called abutments are attached to the implant. These parts allow prosthetic teeth to connect to the implants.

Placement of Prostheses: In the final stage of the treatment, crowns, bridges, or prostheses tailored per the patient's tooth structure and aesthetic preferences are placed on the abutments, marking the moment when the patient finally receives their new teeth.


Advantages of Implant Treatment


Natural Appearance and Feel: Implants provide the closest look and feel to natural teeth.
Permanent Solution: When well cared for, implants can last a lifetime.
Comfort and Function: Implants offer maximum comfort and functionality in daily activities such as eating, speaking, and laughing.
Jaw Bone Protection: Implants help preserve the facial structure by preventing the jaw bone from deteriorating.
Conclusion: Dental implants are the perfect solution to replace your missing teeth. They provide superior results in both aesthetic and functional terms.
