Üsküdar Dental Hospital Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Specialist Dr. Lecturer Member Musa Erdem gave information about implant treatment after tooth extraction.
Emphasizing the importance of shortening the treatment period, Üsküdar Dental Hospital Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Specialist Dr. Lecturer Member Musa Erdem said, “It is a very popular treatment method as it provides advantages such as shortening the treatment time and protecting the bone and gum environment around the implant. However, the immediate implant protocol is more complex than normal implant surgery and its implementation requires surgical precision. “In some cases it may not be possible, this can be determined before the tooth is extracted.” he said.
"Efforts are made to save the tooth before it is extracted"
Dr. points out that before deciding on tooth extraction, the healthy tissues of the tooth must be of quality and volume to support the restoration such as filling or coating. Lecturer Member Musa Erdem stated that it is essential to have a healthy root and said, "Before teeth are extracted, they are tried to be saved with procedures such as filling, root canal treatment or root tip resection." said.
“Bone grafting can be done for areas that are not suitable for implants.”
Dr. Lecturer Member Musa Erdem stated that tooth extraction and implantation will make positive contributions to the protection of the hard and soft tissue around the extracted tooth and concluded his words as follows:
“In cases where tooth extraction and implant placement are delayed too much, bone volume and gum quality in the area may decrease. This is also an undesirable situation. Bone graft operations are performed for areas that are not suitable for implants. This is popularly known as bone powder.”
