Implant Application and Its Advantages
The implant is not a fearsome and difficult treatment, as sometimes exaggerated by patients who have had a bad experience. In fact, it is even easier than a simple tooth extraction. The implantation procedure takes 6 minutes. The same anesthesia used during dental filling is administered to the patient, and it is the completely painless procedure. It is easier compared to tooth extraction.
The success of the implant is directly proportional to the quality of the bone. With the developing technology, it is now possible to place implants even in the presence of inadequacy in the bone, by using a bone graft. With volumetric tomography, successful implantation can be achieved in many cases where bone structure is challenging. Depending on the bone condition, the superstructure can be completed one or more weeks after placing the implant, and the tooth becomes usable again.
If there is a gap after tooth extraction, it is recommended that the implant closes this gap as soon as possible. Because following tooth extraction, the bone in the area begins to dissolve slowly, and this can result in a large depression in the bone. However, the placement of the implant stops this destruction and ensures a healthy bone. Applying the implant treatment soon after tooth extraction will enhance the quality of the treatment and reduces its cost.
The implant can be applied to anyone except those receiving radiotherapy, or with the specific bone disease. The implant can be applied to the diabetic patient regardless of their blood glucose, after testing for HbA1c, and to cardiac patients following antibiotic prophylaxis. The implant can be conveniently applied to young adults who have completed their oral and mandibular development, or to elderly people with proper bone quality.
