The implant is a kind of screw made of pure titanium or titanium alloys which is placed in the socket opened in the jawbones of the patients who have lost their teeth. The implant screw is replaced with the lost teeth of the patients; besides, it is made on the natural teeth, the stable prosthesis or mobile prosthesis applications are made by getting support from these.
Why Dental Implants?
The dental implants prevent the bone loss! What does it mean? When one tooth of ours is extracted, there is a solution in the bone tissues of that region, the bones that remain without any function begin to resolve more rapidly, if an implant is applied in this area following the extraction of the tooth, there becomes no bone loss, thus there is no gingival recession as well and we reach greater results aesthetically.
Another advantage of the implant is that no application can be done in the other teeth nearby the space. Normally, when a stable bridge is made, the section is made in the teeth neighboring the space, and the healthy teeth are also covered, the implants are made just in the extraction space and the adjacent teeth are never touched. We have as natural teeth with the implants as we cannot obtain with other prosthesis, we experience the comfort we have lived previously in our teeth while we are chewing, speaking and laughing.
How is the Implant Treatment Applied?
The treatment has two phases, surgical and prosthesis phase. The surgical operation is made by the specialist in the suitable anesthetic conditions (general or local anesthesia) and sterile mediums, and the operation is painless, but at the end of it, there may become a moderate pain and swelling in that region; this passes in a few days. Following the operation, there is a waiting period of 3-6 months; the incorporation of the implant with the jaw bone is enabled biologically in this period. At the end of the time, the prosthesis phase, that is to say, the superstructure finishes in a week.
How is the Care of the Implants?
The oral hygiene is very important as it is in the natural teeth. Otherwise, if there is no sufficient care, the implants may be lost like the natural teeth. There should be a regular brushing and oral care.
To whom is the Implant Applied?
Applying implant is risky for the diabetic patients who are not under control, the ones who have a blood coagulation disorder, and the ones who have received cortisone treatment and still been receiving.
What are the Disadvantages?
The expense of a tooth implant is more expensive than a normal artificial tooth has. Despite of this, the advantages of the implant and the prosthesis applied on it make the patients undertake these expenses in terms of the comfort and appearance. There is a long period which lasts for 3-9 months between the application of a dental implant and the application of the prosthesis on it. When it is thought that the implant will endure for 20 years or more, it should be faced up to such a long formation period.
Our teeth and laugh are the supplement of the facial aesthetic.
The Aesthetic Problems Related to the Aesthetic Dentistry
- The color defects on teeth
- The malformations of teeth
- The old and fractured stopping and prosthesis without any aesthetic aim
- The positional and postural defects of teeth, diastema (scattered) teeth
- The deficiencies of teeth
- The problems related to the gingivals, malformations, and the relation of teeth with the soft tissue
- The dental inconsistencies and the maladjustments depending on the jaw
The Aesthetic Applications Made with the Aim of Removal of the Aesthetic Problems
- Bleaching (teeth whitening)
- Aesthetic stopping and composite veneers
- Porcelain inlays-onlays
- Laminate veneers
- Nonmetallic crown and bridges
- Application of diamond on the tooth
- Design of laugh
Teeth Whitening -Bleaching
There become unwanted stains because of the agedness of teeth, coloring agents (tea, coffee, coke, and cigar), trauma, some antibiotics (tetracycline), and excessive use of flour. The teeth whitening is an oxidation method used to bleach the teeth in a few tones. With the bleaching method applied in the surgery or house, the color of the tooth can be bleached at least in 2 tones.
There are porcelain restorations in the thickness of a nail with the aesthetic aim in the malformations of the fore teeth in terms of color and form, the teeth with diastema (scattered) and in the slight convolutions. It is applied by corroding the only front faces of teeth, which is different from other classic porcelain crowns. They cannot be distinguished from the natural teeth because of the fact that they are nonmetallic, and have the feature of being thin and light transmission.
Nonmetallic Crowns and Bridges
Due to the excessive material loss in teeth, the presence of the very great stopping, the teeth, fragility of which increases because of the root canal therapy or in the mouths which have functional and aesthetical problems due to the tooth extraction or with different aesthetic or functional anxieties, the porcelain crown and bridges have been made. In this type of stable prosthesis, the teeth are minimized and measured, and covered with suitable materials. In the porcelain crown and bridges with a nonmetallic and zirconium substructure, the fact that it has no metal substructure, there is no light etal substructure; the light transmission is close to the natural teeth; it does not create any allergy; it does not create color in the gingivals; and it is compliant with the natural tooth functionally, increase the preferability.
As a meaning, the prosthesis is an artificial replacement of any deficit in the body or of an organ or a tissue which cannot fulfill its function.
WHAT IS THE COMPLETE PROSTHESIS?
It is a type of prosthesis applied for the individuals who have lost their whole teeth; it completely gets support from the tissue; the use and adaptation take a long time especially with the individuals jaw bones of whom have been corroded very much because it is tissue-aided. The production of the prosthesis takes 7-10 days; there become dents after the fixation, but these are restored by the doctor and rendered to the more useful form.
What is the Fractional Prosthesis?
It is a type of prosthesis applied for the patients who have lost their whole teeth; it is tooth and tissue-aided and removable. The prosthesis holds the teeth through the coronoid or sensitive holders; its production time is 7-15 days.
What is the Stable Prosthesis?
The stable prosthesis known as bridge, crown, and crowning, as well, is prosthesis applied in a few tooth deficiency in the mouth and prepared in the laboratory with the formation of anchorages (section, minimizing) and adhered to the teeth. They are adopted by the patient relatively to the removable prosthesis, but the presence of some conditions is necessary for its application. The cleaning of this prosthesis is very significant in terms of its durability. Following the preparation of the teeth and measurement, the operation is finished in 3-4 sessions and 1-2 weeks. It can be prepared with variable substructures; the most suitable type of prosthesis for your mouth should be decided.
The Gingival Diseases
The gingival disease known as the periodontal disease, as well, is an infection in the soft tissues surrounding the tooth and enabling the tooth to hold tightly in the mouth. The most important reason of the tooth losses, seen especially in old individuals, is the gingival disease. Because of a decayed tooth, while one tooth is lost, the whole teeth may be lost due to the gingival disease; since these losses lead to the solution in the jaw bones, they attach great importance to the further prosthesis, as well. The reason of the gingival diseases is the bacterial plaque which accumulates on the external face of the tooth surface, and creates the form of a thin stratum. In the first phase which is called gingivitis, there is a reddening, swelling, and bleeding in the gingivals; in this phase, the disease is reversible with a regular brushing and the use of a dental floss. In the late phase of the disease which is known as periodontitis, the gingival and bone tissue are devastated and there is a vibration in the tooth.
The Symptoms of the Gingival Disease
- If the gingivals are bleeding
- If there is a reddening, swelling, and pain in the gums
- If there is a bad smell in the mouth
- If there comes a purulence from the tooth and the gingival
- If there is a vibration in teeth or replacement, you should go to the dentist as soon as possible.
The Root Canal Therapy
The treatment applied in the situation of the disease of vessel, nerve, and lymph, which extend along the root into the tooth, is called root canal therapy. In the presence of the decayed teeth, which have not been cured deeply, tooth fractures or after the trauma, the soft tissue which contains this vessel and nerve web called the dental pulp, sickens and if it is not cured at the right time, the disease spreads from the edge of the root to the dental environmental tissues; it emerges with the symptoms of the toothache, vibration, swelling etc. The purpose in the root canal therapy is to extract this sickened and infected soft tissue; if it is not extracted and the tooth is not cured, it should be extracted. The treatment lasts for 1-3 sessions according to the condition of the tooth. During the therapy, the dentist or endodontist (specialist of the root canal therapy) extracts the ill pulp, disinfects the root canals, widens and shapes them, and finally fills tightly and provides covering. In some situations, a medicine can be placed in the pulp room and root canals in order to remove bacteria. In serious infection cases, the dentist may advise oral medicament. The teeth with a root canal therapy cannot be fed when the living stratum is extracted in themselves and they resemble a dried tree, and they are easily broken in the minimal strikes; thus, the crown can be applied to these teeth and the durability of the tooth can be extended in the presence of the excessive crown ruin.
