You need to have an implant, but you have some question marks in your head? If you’re worried about ‘what if your treatment fails’, so there is no need to panic.

Turkey Medicals – Turkey dental implants are very popular today. In order for you to know at least as much as a student of the faculty of dentistry, we answered different questions from the questions circulating on the Internet:

In patients with partial toothlessness, what are the advantages of regulating toothlessness with implants?

It eliminates the need to use natural teeth as a bridge foot.

Eliminates the need for a movable prosthesis in free finite cases.

It best imitates natural teeth.

Hygiene is provided much better.


What are the implant prosthesis options for completely toothless patients?

Implant-tissue supported prostheses: The prosthesis used is movable. The purpose of these implants is to provide support and retention to the prosthesis. It is more economical than other options.

Fully implant-supported prostheses: The prosthesis used is movable. It is used in patients for whom further stabilization and retention is required. In this system, the minimum tissue pressure, better transportation for hygiene and better output of sounds in the upper jaw are ensured.

Fixed prostheses with implant support: The prosthesis used is fixed. It can be made in two types as metal-porcelain prosthesis and hybrid prosthesis.

In cases where bone resorption is minimal, metal-porcelain prostheses are preferred, which are more aesthetic.

Hybrid prostheses are preferred in patients with moderate bone resorption, when it is necessary to compensate for the lost bone and soft tissue.


Implant-how many implants should be placed at least for tissue-assisted prosthesis construction?

It may be sufficient to put two implants between the mental foramen in the lower dec, in the symphysis area.

Depending on the sufficient amount of bone in the upper jaw, at least four implants should be placed in the area of the canine and small molars.

How many implants should be placed in the construction of a fully implant-supported movable prosthesis?

At least four implants are recommended for the lower jaw and at least six for the upper jaw, as the implant will carry the entire load.

How many implants should be placed in completely toothless patients for implant-supported fixed prosthesis construction?

It is recommended to place at least six implants in the lower jaw and at least eight implants in the upper jaw.

It is preferable to place the implants so that they are from the canine tooth to the first molar tooth.

What is osseointegration?

When the implant is inserted, there is a microbial between the implant surface and the bone. In two to six months, muscle disappears with the construction of new bone, and the process of boiling the bone and implant takes place.

What is the difference dec an implant and a natural tooth in terms of gums?

In natural teeth, fibers that connect the teeth to the decawbone extend between the cementum of the tooth and the wall of the alveolar socket. The implant is in direct dec with the bone without connective tissue in between. Implants merge with the bone in a way that mimics the fusion of the tooth. The gingival epithelium surrounding the upper structure of the implant adheres to titanium by means of hemidesmosomes, similar to natural teeth. Although the attachment of the junction epithelium to the implant is not mechanically strong, the spread of bacteria to the tissues is prevented with good oral hygiene.

What does the primary stability of the implant mean?

When the implant is inserted, it means that there is no movement in the implant. In the success of the implant boiling, it is of primary importance to ensure primary stability when the implant is inserted and not to disturb the balance of the implant during the healing phase.

How much should the heat generated during the preparation of the area where the implant will be placed be maximum?

Necrosis occurs in the bone when the heat generated in the bone rises above 47 degrees for a minute. In order to prevent bone necrosis, it has been recommended that the maximum temperature that may occur be 40 degrees.


What should be considered in the preparation of the implant socket to prevent the formation of heat in the bone?

Use of a micromotor at low speed (800-1500 rpm)

Use of sharp end mills

Abundant internal and external saline physiological washing

Preparation of the implant slot so that the cutter protrudes out of the slot at between.

What is considered when implanting implants in the small molar area of the lower jaw?

In the alveolar nerve, it exits the foramen by moving forward and curving up and back before exiting the mental foramen. In order to avoid damage to the nerve, implants should be installed at least 5 mm below the mental foramen. it should be placed in front of it.


Is there a gap between the length of the implant and its success?

Yes The length of the implant is 3 mm each. with its increase, the surface area increases by about 20-30 percent. The success rate of using short implants is lower than long implants. For this reason, the longest implant that is compatible with the supporting bone and neighboring anatomical structures should be used.

Is there a relationship dec implant balance and the quality of the bone placed in the implant?

Yes The stability of the implant is higher in areas with a high percentage of shell bone, while the stability of the implant is lower in areas of bone with an excess of a bump layer.


What are the complications that can be seen in implant treatment?

Loss of the implant without loading yet

Loss of the implant after installation

Loss of sensation on the lower lip due to nerve damage

Complications that occur in soft tissue

Inflammation of the implant and surrounding tissues

Bone loss in the alveolar crest

Fracture of the implant

Technical complications related to the elements of the implant

What are the success criteria for implant treatment?

Immobilization of each implant

Absence of radiolucency around the implant during X-ray examination

The average vertical bone loss after the first year is less than 0.002 mm

Constant pain, discomfort, absence of infection associated with the implant

The localization and inclination of the implant does not interfere with the construction of prostheses

What can be the causes of implant failure?

Excessive heat exposure of the bone during the preparation of the implant seat

Failure to ensure primary stability when the implant is inserted

Presence of bone defects larger than 1-2 mm in the anterior or posterior cortical bone

Insertion of the implant into bone of poor quality without taking into account mechanical loading forces

Incorrect localization and inclination of the implant; osseintegration is good, but it is impossible to restore implants

Absence of conjoined gums around the implant and inflammation in the soft tissue

During the early recovery period, the implant is subjected to excessive chewing loads

Excessive load on the implant after the prosthesis is inserted

Poor oral hygiene

Occurrence of infection.
