Implants used in single tooth implant treatment provide a structure and foundation to your artificial tooth. If there is enough bone in the area of tooth loss, implants can be used for all tooth losses. If there is not enough bone in the area of tooth loss, the necessary bone tissue can be created in that area with modern methods and then the implant can be applied. In the case of a single tooth loss, an implant is placed in your jaw and a crown is placed on it. Thus, your treatment takes place without damaging the teeth next to the missing tooth.
Single tooth implants are used in people who are missing one or more teeth. The implant is surgically placed in the gap opened to the jawbone by the dentist. After the implant connects with the bone, it acts as a root for the crown prosthesis that will replace your missing tooth.
For this procedure to work, there must be sufficient and strong bone tissue in the jawbone to hold and support the implant. If there is not enough bone, bone tissue is added to the relevant area and the supporting bone is strengthened.
In the treatment of missing teeth with the traditional method, the adjacent teeth were abraded and bridge prostheses were applied. However, with implant applications, your treatment takes place without touching your neighboring teeth.
With the decision of the TDB Central Administrative Board, photographs of the patients before and after the treatment are not included. The pictures here are taken from academic publications taught at the university.
Implants are revolutionary in the treatment of tooth loss in dentistry. Implant treatment, which is accepted as the closest application to the real tooth today, is a painless and simple procedure. The implant, which consists of a titanium apparatus placed on the root of the tooth, can be easily placed in the jawbone without any seams. In fact, if the tooth loss has been new, placing an implant directly instead of the tooth root is a much easier treatment method.
Implant and prosthetic dentistry Prof. Dr. Ömer Kutay has been treating implant patients for more than thirty years in his clinic named Implant Center in Nişantaşı, Istanbul. Ömer Kutay, who provides implant treatment services to both domestic and foreign patients, is one of the names that come to mind when it comes to implants.
Ömer Kutay, who has carried out successful studies in the field of implants, has performed and continues to perform implant treatment for numerous patients. Providing implant treatment services in the rehabilitation of both single teeth and all teeth, Prof. Dr. The operations performed by Ömer Kutay have a success rate of 99 percent.
The implant can be applied in four different ways in general. In the first method, the relevant tooth is extracted and the implant is placed in the same session immediately. This is the most comfortable and practical method for the patient and the doctor. It does not require stitches and surgical intervention and is almost never painful.
The second method is the so-called closed technique. In this method, laser is used without opening the flap (without cutting the patient's tissue to be implanted) and a cavity is created. The implant is placed in this cavity.It is a comfortable, painless and one-stage procedure and takes a very short time. In the third method, there are mini implants. In this method, direct implant application is made over the mucosa.The fourth method is the most well-known classical surgical method among the public.
With the surgery, a suitable gap is opened in the person's jawbone, the implant is placed there and the stitches are removed after about a week. In this method, if the person's bone density is low, an additional procedure called bone grafting is performed before the implant is placed.
Loss of a single tooth can occur for many reasons: History of trauma, tooth decay, loss of bone support of the tooth due to gum diseases. If the loss of a single tooth is in a part of the patient that is visible when he smiles or speaks, this situation causes many problems in the social life of the patient and loss of self-confidence. Therefore, the treatment of a single tooth loss becomes even more important.
The best method for single tooth loss is single tooth implant placement. In the past, bridges or removable removable prostheses were used in single tooth losses, but nowadays, with the development of implant therapy, it is possible to treat this loss in the best way possible with implants. First of all, a titanium screw is inserted into the bone, and the bone, which we call osteointegration, is expected to fuse with this screw, and after this process, a crown made of zirconium or metal porcelain is attached. During this period, temporary prosthetic teeth are placed so that the patients can continue their daily life and normal life.
In traditional methods, neighboring teeth are prepared and reduced to support these teeth. However, if the implant is made, the other teeth are not touched and only the relevant tooth is intervened.
After tooth loss, due to edentulousness in the jawbone, the area begins to dissolve in the bone, but if the implant is placed in the jawbone, the function is restored and this melting is prevented.
Your newly made denture will be just like your own natural tooth and function like a natural tooth in your chewing and aesthetic appearance.
