What is a Dental Implant

Dental implants are screw-type structures that are applied to the jawbone in order to eliminate tooth deficiencies, mimic the tooth root and on which Dental Prosthesis can be applied.


Why a dental implant is recommended?

Structures that are not used due to the nature of living things become atrophied over time. Since the jaw bones are not exposed to force due to tooth deficiencies, they begin to melt over time. Melting of the jawbone causes the gingiva adjacent to the bone to decrease over time. Dental implant, on the other hand, imitates the nature of the tooth in case of tooth deficiency and helps to preserve the structure of the existing bone. The preservation of the bone structure brings along events such as the appearance of the gums, lips and facial muscles.

If we give an example of a single missing tooth, if we try to eliminate the missing tooth by making a bridge, the bone in the missing tooth area will continue to dissolve over time, and therefore the bone and therefore the gum in that area cannot be preserved.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

The dental implant prevents the melting of the jawbone. Neighboring teeth do not need to be cut as in bridge treatment. The natural structure of neighboring teeth is preserved. The patient feels the implant and the coating on it as if it were his own tooth. Its application in the anterior regions provides mainly aesthetic movements, such as cutting and plucking while chewing, and its application in the posterior regions provides a healthy and effective nutrition. The protection of the jawbone provides the protection of the gingiva adjacent to the bone. Removable dentures made by using implants for patients using removable dentures are very advantageous in terms of wearing comfort, chewing, feeding and speaking effectively.

Intraoral Wounds

Signs of important systemic diseases can be seen primarily in the mouth. Even if these intraoral lesions do not cause you any discomfort, you should definitely be examined by the dentist.
