Single Dental Implant Application
The factor that makes dental implants popular for dentistry is not only the closure of the space without any preparation to the existing teeth, but also the prevention of bone lose that may occur after tooth extraction.
The Parts That Make Up the Implant
The implant consists of three parts.
It is the part of the dental implant that is placed into the bone. It is produced from titanium as a material, that is, it is a compatible material for the human body.
This part is the implant part that replicate the natural prepared tooth in the mouth. The prostheses to be made are placed on this part. This part is produced from titanium like an implant.
It is the name given to the part of the prosthesis made on the implant.
This part can be produced from different materials. Sometimes this part is made on the implant, and sometimes it can be designed to be screwed.
Implementation Stages of the Implant
Step 1 Examination and Prosthesis Planning
Before starting the surgery, a x-ray film (Panoramic) showing the jaws of the individual is taken and an oral examination process supported by the film is started. The examination is not only about your oral health, but also includes the evaluation of your general health.
As a result of these evaluations, the prosthesis to be made for the individual is planned.
Implant planning and locations are determined according to this prosthesis type.
Step 2 Surgical Procedure
Implant application is started at the places determined according to the prosthesis planning. Usually, the surgical procedure is performed under local anesthesia and after surgery the surface of the implant is closed and sutured with soft tissue, gingiva.
After this process, after a 1-week waiting period, the sutures are removed and the waiting period for the osseointegration process is started.
Step 3 Uncovering the Implant
At this stage, a gingival former is applied after a small incision under local anesthesia on the implant whose osseointegration is completed. After this process, a waiting period of 7-10 days is required for the gingival healing. In order to shorten this process, the gingiva can be reshaped with laser.
At this stage, it may require extra applications to the gingiva in order to fully provide the aesthetics of the prosthesis on the implant planned at the beginning.
Step 4 Prosthesis Application
At the end of the healing stage, the impressions are taken and the production of the planned prosthesis is started. The prosthesis manufacturing is completed.
Step 5 Tracking Process
After the delivery time of prosthesis to the patient, the first control is performed on the 6th month. If every condition is ok, the next check is arranged annually.
