As a pioneer in dental implant treatments, estethica aims to increase the quality of life of every patient with dental implant cost of Turkey, as well as regain everyone a healthy smile.
What is Dental Implant?
An implant, commonly known as a screw, is an artificial tooth root made from titanium material. Dental implant procedures offer a solution for aesthetic concerns and health issues caused by missing teeth. They can be thought of as artificial tooth roots made entirely from titanium, which is fully compatible with body tissues. Dental implants enable patients who have lost their teeth to smile comfortably, speak clearly, engage in social activities, maintain proper nutrition, and achieve the most natural-looking teeth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into the jawbone to support dental prosthetics. When there are missing teeth that disrupt dental and smile aesthetics, dental implant procedures are generally preferred. In cases where natural tooth roots are lost, an artificial tooth root is placed within the jawbone and gum tissue to assume the position of the missing root. Teeth are then positioned over the newly placed roots.
In summary, dental implant procedures involve artificial tooth roots made from titanium, which is compatible with body tissues. These roots are placed into the jawbone through a minor surgical procedure in a sterile environment. Within approximately 2-3 months, the implant fully integrates with the jawbone and is ready to support a dental prosthesis. Once the implant is ready to bear the load of the prosthetic tooth, a dental prosthesis is attached.
What Are the Risks of Dental Implant Treatment?
The risk factor in dental implant treatment is comparable to the risks observed in both intraoral and extraoral treatments, and there are no distinct risks associated. Pre-existing or post-operative inflammation within the oral cavity can occur during implant treatment. One of the most commonly encountered risks is inflammation resulting from inadequate oral care. This inflammation can be prevented through regular maintenance before it arises, and it can also be managed after its occurrence.
Smoking during the healing process is another factor that increases the risk of inflammation. In such cases, patients can avoid these risks by undergoing regular check-ups and adhering to the details emphasized by the surgeon.
Insufficient care before and after the procedure can lead to the body rejecting the implanted area, resulting in an opening in the palate. While not posing a health risk, this factor causes a delay for the patient. Therefore, adhering to the guidelines provided by the doctor will yield the most effective results for the patient.
Who Cannot Receive Dental Implants?
In modern times, dental implants can be applied to nearly everyone. Patients with systemic diseases (such as diabetes, heart conditions, hypertension, etc.) can undergo the procedure if their conditions are under control, with the supervision and approval of their relevant doctor. Implants can be placed after appropriate evaluations and with the consent of the doctor for patients who use immunosuppressive medications or who have had cancer (undergoing or completed treatment). However, it is not advisable to proceed with implant placement without proper evaluation and doctor's approval in such cases.
Individuals who have lost one or more teeth or are at risk of losing teeth are potential candidates for implant treatment. Even patients who have no teeth in their mouth can benefit from implant procedures, which can provide a comfortable and high-quality oral treatment option.
In essence, dental implants are a versatile solution that can be considered for a wide range of individuals. However, each case is unique, and a thorough evaluation by a qualified dental professional is necessary to determine the suitability of implant treatment based on an individual's specific health conditions and needs.
Differences Between Smart Implants and Conventional Implants
Quick implants are implants that rapidly integrate with the jawbone, allowing for implant placement in just one day. They feature a special surface that is highly compatible with the human body, preventing bone resorption in the treated areas and can be used even in individuals with bone loss.
Compatibility with Jawbone:
The material, design, and surface structure of the implant, along with factors such as performing the surgical procedure in a sterile environment without harming the jawbone and preparing the implant socket to perfectly accommodate the implant, all play important roles in ensuring compatibility with the jawbone.
- Smart Implant: In implant procedures performed by our expert prosthodontists and oral surgeons under sterile conditions, a high level of bone compatibility is aimed for.
- Conventional Implant: Implants of inadequate quality can lead to issues with jawbone compatibility. Procedures carried out by non-specialized dentists in unsuitable environments can decrease the implant's compatibility with the jawbone.
Gums and Jawbone Healing Speed:
- Smart Implant: Smart implants protect the treated area with their specialized surface, ensuring high compatibility with the human body. They accelerate the healing process of gums and jawbone and provide support for bone healing.
- Conventional Implant: Conventional implants, lacking a specialized surface with three-dimensional details, might fall short in supporting jawbone healing. They might be perceived as foreign objects by the body, potentially leading to gum recession, infection, and damage to the jawbone.
Potential Impact on Osteoporosis (Bone Loss) in Jawbone:
- Smart Implant: The use of three leading implant brands globally helps minimize the frequency of bone loss and prevent the bone resorption that can occur in areas of the jawbone with missing teeth.
- Conventional Implant: Areas with missing teeth in conventional implant cases are prone to bone loss. Improperly conducted procedures and implants made from ordinary materials can further increase the risk of bone loss.
Structural Durability of Implant:
- Smart Implant: Smart implants are compatible and durable with body tissues, exert low pressure on tissues due to their low density, remain unchanged in color, do not induce allergic reactions, and come with a lifelong guarantee against manufacturing defects. After the procedure, a "implant passport" is provided to emphasize the originality of the implant.
- Conventional Implant: Conventional implant procedures may lead to undesired outcomes such as tissue incompatibility, fractures, dislodgment, structural deterioration, allergic reactions, rejection by the jawbone, damage to adjacent teeth, and infections.
Implant Hospitals in Turkey
Smart implants offer a significant aesthetic advantage in dental prosthetics, with zirconia ceramics providing light permeability and transparency, or empress and empress e-max ceramics creating an esthetic difference by closely resembling natural teeth. Every stage of dental prosthetic treatment is carried out using CadCam technology. Through CadCam technology, clear images of the oral measurements are obtained using cameras, facilitating precise measurement collection. Based on these images, the design of teeth and gums is visualized and planned in a digital environment. In the subsequent stages, dental prosthetics are manufactured using computer-aided technology, ensuring a hands-free process.
