Teeth are structures that require attention from childhood. In order to maintain dental health, it is necessary to brush at least twice a day, and avoid frequent consumption of sugary foods and beverages. But sometimes, even if you pay attention to everything, it is possible to experience tooth decay, discoloration or tooth loss. Our teeth have a structure that can cause problems. Although tooth loss is scary, dental treatments blended with new technologies solve this problem. Dental implants that will not replace your own healthy teeth are fixed to your jawbone and made ready. In this way, it is as if you did not lose your own tooth.
WHAT IS DENTAL IMPLANT? Implants, which we call fixed and single prosthesis, produced to replace the lost teeth, have the appearance of a real tooth with the crown placed on them. It does not move, come off or cause any damage in any way. It can replace one or more of your missing teeth. It also mimics your healthy teeth so naturally that no one will know you have an implant. It is applied to other healthy teeth in the area of the lost tooth without causing any damage. This makes it more advantageous than other applications. These artificial tooth roots consist of titanium material that is screwed into the jawbone. Since it is fixed to your jawbone with local anesthesia, you do not feel pain during the procedure. The process may sound scary when you describe it that way, but it doesn't pose a challenge. Every day, hundreds of people prefer this practice and therefore modern dentistry practices.
FROM ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS TO THE PRESENT Today, various modern applications are used to prevent and eliminate tooth loss. Although these modern applications have taken their final form with the contributions of developing technology, it is known that they have been used since ancient civilizations. As a result of archaeological studies, it is seen that the history of implant treatments dates back to the Maya civilization. We can say that the implants used in the Maya civilization are similar in terms of application, but different in terms of the material used. Today, dental screws used for this treatment method are made of titanium; It is seen that materials such as stones, sea shells and animal teeth were used in those times.
MATERIAL USED IN THE ROOT OF NEW TOOTH In the first civilizations it was discovered, implant treatment, which was made with organic materials such as stone, dead human or animal teeth, was recently made with materials such as stainless steel, lead and platinum. More recently, we can say that a chromium-cobalt mixture was used. However, nowadays it is made of titanium materials. Titanium screws are considered to be more durable and do not interact with the oral fluid.
HOW IS IT APPLIED? Implant treatments often sound like a painful practice. It can be thought that due to the interventions on the jawbone, there will be destruction and healthy teeth will be damaged. In fact, these thoughts do not reflect reality. Because this treatment method is one of the most preferred modern dental treatments and is very safe when applied correctly. The procedure is performed by fixing screws made of titanium material to the jawbone. A prosthesis is placed on the upper part of the screws fixed to the jawbone, visible through the mouth. The implanted prosthesis can be a crown, bridge or removable denture. The process is determined by the examination of the specialist dentist before the treatment. The first step of the treatment, after the examination, is the placement of titanium screws in the jawbone. For this, an incision is made on the gums and a hole is made in the jawbone with a special drill. The artificial bone, that is, the screw, is placed in this area and the gum is closed. The gingival recovery period that the doctor will give you after the first procedure will be approximately 1 and a half to 2 months. Then you will go to the control again, you will find out whether you can continue the process. If the expected fusion is not achieved, you may have to wait a while longer. If healing and fusion have been achieved, prosthesis selection and application stages can be passed. When all the procedures are completed and the treatment is completed, you will notice the artificial but extremely comfortable new tooth structure inside your mouth.
