Stating that the pain felt after implant application is no different from tooth extraction, Dr. Dt. Sancar Şimşek said, “In cases where the treatment is completed without any problems, patients can be so comfortable that they do not even feel the presence of implants,” and told those who were curious about the dental implant.
Stating that the implant is an artificial tooth root placed in the jawbone to restore the function and aesthetics of the missing teeth, Şimşek said that the application will provide life-long comfort. Dt. Sancar Şimşek said, “Implant screws have a certain thickness and width. For this reason, the jawbone in the area where the implant is to be placed must have a height and width to accept the implant screw. The quality of the bone is also one of the factors affecting implant success.
In addition, the gums must be completely healthy before treatment and as long as the implant remains in the mouth. Bone structure is one of the most important factors affecting success in implant application. The person must have a suitable bone tissue for the implant. Bone tissue should be detected and then implant planning should be done, “he said.
Emphasizing that the patient who is applied local or general anesthesia according to the preference will not feel much pain after the application, Şimşek said: “If the bone structure and general health status of the person are suitable for the implant, there is no upper age limit. Health is a much more important factor than age. Implant application is only It is not preferred in very young patients whose bone development has not been completed yet.
Implant time may vary depending on the number of teeth to be made. Nowadays, with the developing technology, treatments are completed in a very short time. The pain after the implant placement is not different from the pain felt after the normal tooth extraction. In cases where the treatment is completed without any problems, patients are so comfortable that they do not even feel the presence of implants. “
Şimşek added that the loads on the implant should be minimized and smoking should not be used in order to prevent infection during the first 3-6 months, which is the healing period, in order to ensure the full fusion of the implants with the bone.
