ANXIETY AND STRESS DURING TOOTH LOSS ARE EXTREMELY NATURAL

Turkey Medicals member and Istanbul JCI hospital dental clinic expert Dt, “It may not be easy to experience tooth losses and adapt to the new process. This condition can make some patients depressed. The fear and anxiety experienced by a person who has lost a tooth is extremely normal,” was said.

.
THE SIZE OF THE TOOTHLESSNESS

Losses are one of the inevitable aspects of life. Especially when a person loses something that belongs to him, especially when it is an organ in his body; trauma is inevitable. When a person loses a hand, an arm, a leg, his whole life changes. This event, which affects the way of life, movements and ability to weaken, will be very heavy for the patient emotionally. Just like these organs (although it may not seem so dramatic), tooth loss can also be traumatic enough to change a person’s life pattern. For example, when a person who has lost all his teeth is sentenced to use a palate prosthesis, it takes time for him to adapt to this situation. A person may feel anxiety, and this can lead to depression. Especially people who have emotional problems before adapt to this situation much more difficult. Even the gag reflex that a person gives when using a prosthesis can be an emotional reaction to tooth loss. Muscle function can be significantly impaired and cause poor coordination, inability to perform jaw movements correctly.

CAUSES OF TRAUMA

Everyone is somewhat worried about the dentist’s examination. But the increase in the size of anxiety prevents both treatment and makes the patient unhappy. Anxiety towards the dentist arises from financial worries, fear of pain, thinking about the possibility of not achieving the desired result, and often from previous bad experiences. It is the response to the current or foreseen danger. It often occurs in people who have previously had traumatic experiences, negative memories of the situation. In particular, tooth loss is often perceived as traumatic and is associated with aging. For this reason, patients who cannot physically adapt to the denture are also emotionally affected by tooth loss.

.
FEAR OF PHYSICIANS

Fear is a reaction to a known danger. Dental patients often become nervous, anxious, suspicious, even horrified. It is not surprising that patients consider tooth loss terrible and frightening. A nervous patient can also cause the dentist to be nervous. The Turksh implant dentist must show patience and a sense of confidence. It will be difficult to predict the effects of this loss on the patient, especially when the patient will lose their teeth. The physician may not be able to predict the psychological limits of the patient. Sometimes patients have a false tooth; aging can be considered as a change in appearance, a loss of productivity and a general decline in their value as an individual. Some researchers have concluded that the mood of the person is important in determining the patient’s ability to adapt to the denture and accepting this condition.

IF YOUR JAWBONE IS SUITABLE, AN IMPLANT CAN BE MADE IN FOUR MINUTES

Although there are various techniques for eliminating dental deficiencies caused by various reasons, the implant is one of the greatest blessings that technology brings to us. Titanium screws compatible with the tissues placed inside the jawbone, that is, implants, fuse and become stronger with the jawbone over time. After this fusion, the cut tooth-like superstructures are screwed into the cavity inside the implants and prosthetics are made on it. It is very difficult to distinguish a correctly planned implant prosthesis from natural teeth. It can be coated one by one like natural teeth and cleaned easily. As with the bridge, it does not damage the teeth next to the missing tooth. If your jawbone is suitable, an implant can be made in as little as four minutes without seams.

.
THE EXPECTATIONS OF PATIENTS SHOULD BE REALISTIC

Psychological factors are much more important for the acceptance of the denture and adaptation to the denture than the anatomical condition of the mouth and the quality of the prosthesis made. It is much more important to talk to patients before the construction of prostheses and find out what they want, what they think. Patients’ expectations represent their attitudes. If the patient’s expectations are beyond the limits of possibility, they are too high, which will lead to complex and inconsistent reactions and dissatisfaction. No matter how well you make dentures for this type of patient, the result will be unsuccessful for the patient. The most correct thing to do at this stage is; it will be necessary to talk to the patient, talk about realistic results and raise his expectations to the right levels. Millions of people around the world experience tooth loss due to aging, accidents, diseases and other causes. Ignoring missing teeth can force us to deal with bigger problems in the future. Because although tooth loss is actually an aesthetic problem, it can turn into a health problem in a long time. A tooth is not just a ‘tooth’! Teeth are parts of a complex system in which each element plays an important role. That is why the lost teeth must necessarily be treated. At this point, implant treatment comes to us.

.
IT DOES NOT HARM A HEALTHY TOOTH AND DOES NOT DISRUPT SPEECH

An implant tooth application in Antalya and Istanbul hospitall clinic is an ‘artificial tooth root’ placed on the jawbone to replace missing teeth or teeth to achieve the function of a natural tooth. After the implant is placed in the jawbone, crowns, bridges, movable or fixed prostheses can be made on it according to the need. Thus, the implant provides both the function of the natural tooth and has an aesthetic appearance. Implants combine with the bones in the jaw to create support in the mouth to prevent further tooth loss. Implants are a biological material and are made of titanium that is compatible with dental tissue and bone that the human body accepts. Although there are different types of implants, the most commonly used type is the one in the form of a ‘screw’. It is inserted into the body in a quick and not too painful procedure. Unlike dental bridges, there is no damage to healthy teeth around the prosthesis. Because it is screwed to the jawbone, problems such as slurred speech, chewing difficulty, adaptation problems are avoided in contrast to dentures. When taken care of and cleaned well, implants become long-term solutions.
