Dental implants is a popular method for replacing lost teeth. Implants can be costly and some patients might wonder if they should undertake this surgery. This post discusses what implants are, how they work and how the procedure can be affordable.
Dental implant acts like natural teeth when there are missing or lost teeth. An implant will have a crown made of porcelain or ceramic, a root of titanium and an interior abutment that joins the tooth to your jawbone. Implants are a permanent choice and cannot be removed and do not need to be replaced.
A dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone by a surgeon. Once the procedure is over, there is a healing period to enable bone to grow around the implant. This ensures the dental implant bonds with the tissue of your jawbone.
The patient will need to wait for at least 3 months before the second step of fitting the crowns. If a patient has had sinus or bone grafting, then they will need to wait for at least 6 months before the second visit.
After the implant is bonded properly, our dentist will place an abutment on top of it. It supports the crown that mimics your natural tooth. Finally, you will have a complete artificial tooth to replace your missing tooth.
A dental implant is the fundamental support that gives an artificial tooth the look and function of natural tooth. You will not feel the implant when it is inside your mouth.
Having a dental implant requires several steps and you will have to consult with the dentist many times. He will perform all necessary tests and X-rays to determine if your jaw structure is suitable for implants.
If you do not have any teeth in one jaw, then you need not wait 3 months for crowns. This is very helpful for patients and can improve their confidence levels.
Dental implants are a permanent solution where there are missing teeth. Here are some reasons why patients choose implants.
You need to have a complete jawbone for dental implants. Dental implants are drilled into your bone so there has to be sufficient tissue to secure the implants in place. Dental implants are not recommended where there bis insufficient supporting bone or when a patient suffers from health problem preventing bone healing.
Patients will have to wait for several months before treatment. Once the initial phase is over, you may have to wait for almost 6 months for your jawbone to heal completely. Then, the remaining artificial tooth will be fixed to the implant.
There are different steps in implant surgery and it begins with an evaluation by the dentist who is suggesting an implant. The planning procedure starts with 2 visits. The first step involves implant surgery while the second step is for fitting of the crowns.
Patients who need implants need to send X-ray before visiting our clinic. The bone structure or other issues will decide whether a patient can undergo dental implants.
Your dentist can refer you to a maxillofacial surgeon or oral surgeon who specialises in mouth, jaw and face structure. Our specialist will examine your jaw area to ensure you have enough bone for an implant. You may need to visit a periodontist too, who specialises in oral tissue such as bones and gums. The periodontist will examine your jawbone to assess the health of the gum tissue.
You may be referred to a prosthodontist who prepares artificial teeth and then fixes them in your mouth. A maxillofacial surgeon will perform implant surgery and a prosthodontist completes the procedure with artificial teeth. Your dentist may also refer you you to an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) consultant to assess the interior of your mouth. He will ensure there aren’t any underlying conditions that might affect the implant procedure. You might visit an ENT surgeon if you are at risk of infection or your sinuses are dislocated.
Preparation for implants starts with a comprehensive dental assessment. Your oral surgeon will take 3D images and dental x-rays of the interior part of your mouth. The images will be used to prepare your artificial tooth. Your dentist will discuss your medical history and create a customised treatment plan for you. This treatment will be different when more than one implant is required. You will be given proper medications before or after the surgery, in some cases. You may need to take antibiotics to lessen the risk of infection.
Before or during the surgery, our dentist will begin the process by removing your damaged teeth. He will determine if you need bone grafts to support the implant. This should be done before implant surgery. You will be given a numbing agent to lessen the pain and the surgery involves the dentist cutting through the gum to expose the jawbone. After this, he will drill into the jawbone and place the implants.
After implantation, you will need to wait for your bone to heal completely around the implant. This is what we call osseointegration in which your jawbone will fuse with the metal implant. It will require several months for this fusing to be complete. After the surgery, you might suffer from some pain in the implant area. It is not unusual to experience bruising or swelling of the face or gums. You will have to take antibiotics after the surgery to prevent infection which can help in the healing process. Once the wound heals, you can eat soft foods. After the implant heals, your dentist may provide temporary dentures or a bridge to cover the tooth gap.
After you heal completely from your implant surgery and the implant is fused properly with the bone, you will revisit your surgeon. Next there will be minor surgery to place the abutments connecting the crown to the implant.
Once abutment attachment is over, you will wait for about two weeks for the gums to heal completely. Then, you will see your prosthodontist for fitting of the crown that will look exactly like your natural tooth. You may select a crown that is either fixed or removable. You will find other combinations too, that you can discuss with your doctor.
Typically, one crown will be placed on the implant to support the artificial tooth. The implants may support several crowns, when needed. The dental crown will be attached after the jawbone becomes strong enough to support it.
No medical procedures is risk-free and implants are no exception. Having dental implants requires surgery and there are some risks involved. Some of the risks with implant surgery are as follows:
Most of these risks can be treated simply and effectively. The most serious risk is nerve damage, which is really difficult to treat. Certain changes in your lifestyle such as smoking might put you at greater risk from the effects of implant surgery. You need to speak with the dentist to find out about the risks involved with implant surgery.
Different factors will determine the cost of dental implants in Turkey to include: – brand of implants and costs at our dental clinic. Dental implants are costly and as well as paying for the procedure, you need to pay for other medical processes. In Turkey, the price of dental implants start from £464. For a porcelain dental implant crown, you have to pay from £227. But zirconium dental implant crowns, start at £330.
A dental implant replaces a single tooth at the minimum cost in UK between £2000 and £2500. In case of several teeth, the implant cost may be higher. The long-term benefits of implants lessen the issues that come along with wearing your dentures. With an implant, you can eat anything you like.
Where you live has a major bearing on how much to pay for dental implants. For example, dental implants costs in Turkey will be more in comparison to other places but much less in comparison to others, like the UK. The reason is not the cost of implants but the cost of all the charges and fees you need to pay for doctors and clinics. You may lessen the costs of having an implant dramatically by travelling to a place where medical expenses are less.
Some dental clinics in Turkey provide customised services for foreign patients. The clinics make the necessary arrangements for affordable travel and accommodation so that patients can budget for their trip. Choosing inexpensive implant brands might be a mistake because dental implants will remain in your mouth permanently. Travelling to a country like Turkey is a great choice to lessen the costs of dental implants.
