Dental implants are the best alternatives for natural teeth today in the case of tooth deficiency. It is the prosthetic rehabilitation method which gives the best result especially when there is no need to support the teeth on the side of the bridge or if there are no teeth to be supported. In addition, it is the most successful method that does not have alternative dental implants for totally fixed prosthesis applications or to increase the retention of total prosthesis in case of total toothlessness.
Dental Implant Success Rate
Dental implants are a form of treatment that can provide exceptionally successful results in terms of patient and physician when applied with accurate diagnosis, sufficient knowledge, experience and equipment.
Application of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a longer-lasting treatment than fixed bridges made using removable dentures or adjacent teeth on gums. Dental implants are placed inside the jawbone by our mouth, teeth, jaw surgery specialist.
Dental Implant Application in Single Tooth Deficiencies
Many dentists preferred to have a fixed bridge in the absence of one tooth as much as the day’s. But this method requires the cutting of healthy neighboring teeth. Sensitive and nerve damage may develop as the enamel part of the tooth protecting layer is damaged during cutting. As it is under porcelain over time, bruises and gum problems can be seen in the cut teeth that have difficulties in cleaning. At certain times on the bridge, porcelains will have problems such as cracking and breaking, and the bridge will need to be removed and replaced. At these stages, various damage can occur in the base teeth, too. Studies show that within five to seven years there is a loss rate of up to 30% in teeth adjacent to fixed bridges or mobile prostheses. As a result, cutting healthy teeth can cause problems in these teeth over time.
Movable prostheses are used in patients with a large number of tooth loss cases where fixed bridge prosthesis can not be performed. However, bone dysfunction can occur with the pressure of these prosthesis on the tissues in the toothless areas. All these troubles can be prevented by the placement of dental implants and the prosthetic restorations made on them.
