As a result of the implant procedure in Turkey performed on inexperienced hands, you may lose your teeth or even experience loss of feeling on your lips for life

If you open one of the television channels that has a health program today, you will definitely come across a dentist. When you start to sit down and watch, you will see that the most talked about topics are implant and aesthetic dentistry. Implant application is one of the best methods of missing teeth treatment. Of course, if it can be done well!

If it is not done properly, many serious complications are encountered, from jaw fracture to loss of feeling on the lip for life. I want to touch on this in my article this week. It may seem scary to you, but I think that our patients who will have implants should know more about these issues than the prices of implants. The purpose of this week’s article is to review the main complications associated with implant treatment and draw attention to the general biological and mechanical factors associated with implant success.


– Bleeding, swelling, pain

– Soft tissue injuries

– Temporary or permanent loss of sensation in the lips due to nerve damage in the lower jaw

– Air embolism

– Damage to neighboring teeth

– Bone injuries

– Formation of fractures, especially in the lower jaw

– The implant escapes into body cavities such as the sinus cavity and the inside of the nose

– The development of sinusitis due to damage to the sinus membrane

– Aspiration or ingestion of the implant or its parts

– Development of infection around the implant

– If bone grafts were used, the development of an infection or allergic reaction due to them

– Opening of incision lines

– Dark reflection seen from the gum after prosthetics in the anterior regions

– Heavy bleeding in the lower jaw due to damage to the vessels in the area of the tongue

– Loss of the implant

– Treatment of osteoradionecrosis in patients who have received radiotherapy

– Sinusitis

– Permanent numbness as a result of complete crushing or severing of the nerve

Dental implants, which are considered the most successful method to replace the lost tooth, not only allow you to gain the confidence and psychology that will allow you to enjoy your life, but also beautify your smile, allow you to eat the food you want. It also recreates your facial structure and allows you to have a younger appearance. The process of creating dental implants and bones is a miracle of modern medicine. Great things can be achieved with proper time and planning.

Dental implants; they are metal nails that are surgically inserted into your gum that can be used like an artificial tooth after being fused to the bone. These implants support an artificial tooth under a single coating, bridge, or movable prosthesis. Traditional bridges are still a very good treatment option. But in many people, when making a bridge, the teeth adjacent to the toothless area have to be cut, and over time these teeth are also lost. In such cases, a single dental implant built to fill the lack of a single tooth will be an ideal option.


As with many health procedures, the success rate of implant placement varies from person to person. Used as a treatment option among the reasons for the failure of bone implants that are bad quality, poor bone level, insufficient vertical distance between the lower and upper jaws, or still live in areas neighbouring the area of the implant jaw and facial structures include the ongoing development of anatomical structures. Certain chronic diseases, such as diabetes, osteoporosis, and sinus problems, can also affect the fusion of the implant with bone. The healing process of implants made for smokers is also not very bright. However, proper implant application will ensure that the level of success is very high.


Another issue that should be discussed in dental implants is the issue of placing an implant in the shooting cavity immediately after the tooth is pulled out. Dentists usually wait six months to insert the implant after tooth extraction. But this may mean delaying treatment and leading to thinning of the remaining bone until then. A thin and melted bone poses a significant risk to the creation of someone’s smile aesthetic. This type of dangerous bone quality can lead to losses around the gum tissue, causing aesthetic problems. It is believed that bone development after tooth extraction is the most. It is recommended to install an implant immediately after the extraction of a single tooth in the following cases:

– When the tooth is lost by trauma.

– When the teeth have to be pulled due to a fracture.

After that, the permanent tooth did not come up, the root melted, the remaining milk teeth were removed after. The disadvantage of replacing teeth that have failed root canal treatment is that the implant is placed immediately after tooth extraction, the cavity formed after the extraction does not have a bone relationship that is compatible with the bone one-on-one.

It takes about two months for the implant to fuse with the bone. Depending on which system is used, it takes between two and six months to coat the implant dec It has been proven that the chances of success of placing the implant immediately after the shooting after a careful clinical examination of 10 years are close to the implant placed in the toothless area.


An experienced dentist in Turkey, sterile conditions, knowledgeable assistants and quality material are essential for successful implant treatment before patient-specific factors. Surgical interventions performed by inexperienced people; whether they are small or large, can have very serious consequences. It is necessary to evaluate the area where the implant is placed, the bone in this area and the neighboring anatomical formations very well. Even millimeter shifts provide the necessary reason for the result to fail.

The biggest risk, especially for implant applications performed on the back teeth in the upper jaw, is the problems that may occur in the sinus cavity adjacent to the base of the nose and upper jaw. If there is no bone of the appropriate thickness and quality for implant placement in this area, the implant cannot hold on to the bone during implant placement, and the implant that cannot hold on properly at the first stage may be lost for a moment, that is, it may escape into the upper jaw cavity.


One of the biggest problems that can occur during the implant placement process performed by inexperienced people is that the teeth adjacent to the implant are damaged. While you don’t want to make a bridge to prevent damage to the teeth next door, an incorrectly placed implant can lead directly to tooth extraction. In short, as in the simplest procedure related to health, implant procedures should be performed by experienced physicians, under appropriate conditions and using quality materials.
