Implant Treatment, Advantages and Applicability
Implant treatment, which is used to replace missing teeth, is performed with screws placed in the jawbone. Made of titanium metal, which is placed in place of lost teeth for treatment and does not have any side effects for the organism; plates, screws and nails are called “implants”. The process of placing one or more implants in place of missing teeth or teeth is called implantation.
Implants used in dentistry; screw or cylindrical shape. They are approximately the size of the tooth root (8-16 mm) and 3.5-4 mm in diameter. Implants take on the duties of missing natural teeth in which they are placed.
The main purpose of dentistry is to replace lost teeth in a functional and aesthetic way similar to natural teeth. The ability of the patient to perform functions such as chewing, speaking and laughing is more important than external appearance. Since chewing is perfectly developed by nature, it is not possible to fully repair it with anything artificial as a result of a single tooth loss. However, placing a man-made tooth root (i.e. an implant) in the jawbone is the closest treatment to nature.
Implant is a simple procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia in the office by specialist dentists who know this job.
The tooth placed on the implant looks like your natural tooth. This treatment is a practice that dates back to as old as human history. At various stages of its history, people have considered mounting parts that will serve as teeth on the jawbone as a solution.
