The New Trend In Dentistry, Implants
There are a number of alternatives in the treatment of missing teeth like bridges and dentures but the best is implants. İmplants, with surgery are placed in the bone of the area with the missing teeth in form of a highly compatible titanium screw.
The biggest advantage of implants is that during application they do not harm any tissue. İmplants can not only be used for a couple of missing teeth but fort he whole upper and lower jaw. Dentures applied with the help of implants tend to look alot more aesthetic. İmplants have dramatically minimized the risk of denture problems, making them more functional and comfortable for the patient.
For patients who have lost most if not all of their teeth on their upper or lower jaw the usual form of treatment was dentures. Because of the constant movement of the dentures the patient would regularly feel pain and not be able to chew. With implants it is finally possible to remove all of these complaints.
CAN İMPLANT TREATMENT BE PERFORMED ON EVERYONE? :
For implant treatment a patients teeth must be analysed to see how thick and dense their bone is in the region by having an x-ray taken. İf the patients bone structure is appropriate then treatment will commence. The implant will take 3 – 6 months to heal and once healed a ceramic crown will be placed on top.
WHAT İS THE LİFESPAN OF AN İMPLANT? :
İn order for the implant to last longer your doctor will suggest a set of rules for dental hygiene that you must comply to. Studies show that 98% of implants are successfull. İf you do comply to the rules your dentist provides you and regularly brush your teeth then the lifespan of your implant will increase.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF İMPLANTS? :
- The aestheticness of the implant.
- Dentures aided with implants are alot more stable.
- On areas that have been subject to tooth extraction the bone tends to decrease in time, implants prevent this.
- İmplants make chewing alot more functional.

İt is very hard to realise the difference between implants and your natural teeth because they look so natural. Your dentures are going to allow you to eat and talk more comfortably with implants.
