One of the biggest dangers of implant treatment is the appearance of infection after implants are inserted into the jawbone. This infection is related to the patient’s poor oral care.

Turkey dental implants have become one of the best options for treating patients without teeth in terms of oral rehabilitation and are considered the only form of treatment for some patients. Due to the universal use of dental implants, there is an increase in the number of confusion in the literature regarding their use. The most common of these disorders are inflammatory processes affecting bone and soft tissues, known as the fairy implant. These conditions are often clinically edema, redness, increase the volume of tissue cells, and even that occurs with soft tissue injuries, and sometimes that requires a differential diagnosis in Turkey of malignant changes in these views.


Implants, in other words artificial tooth roots; are the most striking development of modern dentistry. It has changed both the perspective of patients and clinicians on dental treatments and made us aware of many details that we do not know in terms of function, aesthetics and speech. In healthy individuals and healthy mouths, implants do not behave differently from tooth roots, protect the gums, jaw bones around the tooth, and prevent the destruction of these structures. Implants are a popular treatment solution for patients who have lost their teeth and do not want dentures. Implants surgically inserted into the jawbone allow individuals to eat more comfortably, as with a real tooth. Implants also add to the aesthetic images of individuals because they prevent bone loss in the area where they are applied.


One of the biggest dangers in Turkey implant application is the possibility that the risk of infection may occur after the implants are inserted into the jawbone. This infection is usually related to the patient’s poor oral care. If you don’t clean your teeth and don’t floss and don’t repeat these practices after every meal, it causes bacteria to accumulate.

Patients who use tobacco and tobacco products are at a high risk of developing an infection. A high risk of infection results in implant loss. Other substances that will cause infection in implant loss can be listed as follows:

The implant, which will be applied in the area of the jawbone where the tooth was removed, can be revived by leaving the remnants of infection related to the previously existing tooth.

Non-observance of sterilization rules during the performed surgery may increase the risk of infection.

Excessive heating of the bone and the fact that the sets used in surgery are old sets that have lost their sharpness are among the factors that increase the risk of infection.

The implant to be used must have the minimum specifications specified by the World Health Organization. Fake and imitated implants are among the factors that increase the risk of infection due to their content and production problems and can cause serious bone loss.


Another risk factor for implants is sinus problems, which are the result of improper implantation of implants applied to the upper jaw. These problems can occur as a result of bone addition operations performed to gain bone in the sinus area, as well as with a puncture of the sinus floor, a puncture of the sinus membrane, and an infection that the implant creates in this area after entering this cavity. They can feel whining, pressurized and tingling. Increased pressure in the sinus cavity can be the cause of headaches. In advanced cases, migraine pains may develop due to this pressure.


It is especially often encountered in volumetrically small, elderly individuals. The thinness of the jawbone may break during the opening of the implant slot. In such cases, it is necessary to connect the jawbone with special equipment, and the patient’s lower and upper jaw are connected together and fed with a pipette.


Nerve damage is one of the problems that may occur as a result of implant application. Nerve damage occurs when implants are used in the wrong direction and at the wrong lengths without the necessary measurements. Evaluation of panoramic and tomographic X-ray measurements to be performed before surgery plays an important role in preventing this damage. Nerve damage causes loss of sensation in the lips, chin and cheeks. It is also one of the factors why some of your existing teeth remain numb. When we think of the body as a neural network, a break in the neural network anywhere in our body can cause problems in different muscle and nervous systems elsewhere in our body. The treatment of a severed nerve is by reassembling the nerves or suturing the nerves taken from the foot area to those areas.


Implantology means that instead of teeth lost for various reasons, tissue-friendly materials (implants) are placed in jawbone. The increase in scientific studies in recent years, with the development of technologically superior implants and supporting biomaterials, has increased the success rates from 85 percent in 1985 to 98 percent between 1900 and 1985. Now, when there is a lack of teeth today, an implant treatment plan is made without any damage to the natural teeth and dental implants are made to replace the lost teeth. Thanks to this, the lost function, aesthetics and phonation are acquired. Dental implants are generally used for single-tooth deficiencies, single- or double-sided multiple-tooth deficiencies, complete toothlessness, and are often used for orthodontic anchoring purposes.

What are the success criteria for implant treatments? Success in implantology in general depends on three factors:

Physician-related factors:

The best practice of the doctor who will apply the implant is to choose the most appropriate treatment model for the patient. In addition, it is necessary to determine what should be done and what should not be done by sharing the treatment plan with the patient. Factors related to the patient: Having a good rapport with his/her physician throughout the treatment process and helping him/her determine the desired treatment plan in detail with his/her physician in Turkey will increase success.

Factors related to the manufacturer:

The materials used and produced in implantology are tissue-friendly and made of high quality material that has been functioning for many years.

What is the success rate of the implant?

As natural teeth are lost, implants can also be lost. No technique in terms of health is 100 percent successful. The Decantation rate of the implant in the mouth in the world is between 95 – 98 percent. It is seen as a success that implants stay in the mouth for an average of 10 years with good treatment planning and proper bone volume. These periods are exceeded in many well-planned implants.

Do new technological developments increase implant success?

With development of technology and scientific research, implant surgery and developments in implant prostheses help to increase success rates and provide safer implant treatments. With the support of new technologies and three-dimensional radiographic techniques, guides are produced that provide the most convenient and reliable implant surgery. In cases where anatomical formations are close and bone volume is small, bone volume can be evaluated three-dimensionally and reliably with Antalya dental tomographic techniques. Safer and more successful implants are made in these systems.
