Dentist Zafer Kazak said, “Titanium is preferred as an implant material because it interacts with body tissues and is a material resistant to forces. Implants can be placed in the cavities created by previously lost teeth or in the tooth socket immediately after extraction if there is no serious infection.
The main purpose of implant application is to make usable teeth on it. Implants are placed in the jawbone with a simple operation when the bone is sufficient and suitable for the purpose of making fixed or removable prostheses. If the amount or density of the bone is not at the desired level, it may be necessary to perform procedures to form the bone before the implant application. After the implant, hot foods should be avoided for a few days. More soft and nutritious foods should be consumed.
Stating that making a new tooth instead of an implant for the lost tooth is important for the health and function of the surrounding teeth and the entire chewing system, Kazak said, “While a tooth is obtained in its natural tooth form, fulfilling its aesthetic and chewing function, the surrounding teeth slide into the missing tooth cavity and the shape of the other teeth is obtained. disorders are also prevented.
In addition, the bone loss that occurs over time in the cavity formed after tooth extraction is prevented when the implant is made. Implant application is a successful form of treatment that can be applied to everyone, except for some exceptional cases. Anyone who has a bone of the thickness, height and quality where the implant can be placed can be implanted by evaluating their "systemic healthy status".
Having enough bone tissue in a person depends on some factors. Some people may have very thin/thick or less/more bones inherited. In some people, tooth and gingival inflammations cause the bone tissue around them to melt and decrease. For this reason, if a decision is made to have a tooth extracted, it is beneficial to perform the extraction immediately in order not to cause bone loss. In some cases, it can be waited without the implant after the extraction, and in some cases, the implant can be placed during the shooting session.
