SCREW BREAKAGE MAY BE SEEN IN IMPLANT TREATMENT

It is not very easy to break dental implants, but it is also not impossible. If the screw is the part holding the crown or the support is broken, it is more common.

Numerous studies have reported implant fracture rates, which range from dec-16 percent. The occurrence of an implant fracture is associated with bone loss that has been subjected to excessive load. Pitting of the bone has also been reported before the determination of the implant fracture. When examining the records of patients whose implant was broken, he pointed out that 55 percent of these implants that were ultimately broken had previously had mechanical complications such as loosening or breaking the screw. Therefore, it is important to address mechanical issues without any delay. Prosthetic intervention may include returning to prosthetic design and occlusion and installing additional implants.

Maximizing the implant support for a prosthesis can reduce the bending fatigue of the metallic components inside. In order to minimize the distribution of stress and torque, it has been proposed to place the implant-mounted partial dentures flush with the tripod. It is also advocated to place two implants instead of a single molar. This application will provide more surface area for osseointegration and will be able to spread the occlusal loading over a larger area by reducing the bending forces that may probably occur in otherwise single implant molar restoration.

SCREW BREAKS

Fracture of the prosthesis and abutment screws is often reported. Initially, it was thought that the prosthetic screw could break before the other components, as it is smaller and weaker than the fulcrum screw. Despite this, most studies report that the fulcrum screw is often broken, if not as much as the prosthetic screw. A detailed mechanical hypothesis has been prepared to explain this event. The implant support interface corresponds to the level at which the bone support ends and the maximum bone hardness level. This increased rigidity strengthens the tension localized in the area of the crest around the cheek of the implant. The fulcrum screw can be subjected to much greater force and, although it is a more massive structure, it can be more susceptible to fatigue deterioration. Patients and physicians should be aware that screw breakage is not an uncommon complication in implant treatment.

HEALING OF A BROKEN DENTAL IMPLANT

World famous dental implant companies offer a lifetime warranty. Turkey dental implants with crowns in the posterior regions take up to 60 percent of the biting forces and are important for adequate chewing of nutrients. Implants that are usually placed in the upper back areas have an october patch made in the jaw cavity to take advantage of more bones to achieve strength, and the diameter of these patches is 4.5-6 mm. it varies between the two decays. Implants inserted into the molars are quite difficult to break, even in research laboratories. The bone in the cavity of the upper posterior jaw is usually the most porous, flexible and the most flimsy bone compared to other areas. Due to all these factors, a fracture of upper posterior section is a fairly rare complication.

If the implant itself is not broken, the support or the part holding the crown may be broken. First, the doctor who will administer the treatment should make the correct diagnosis. If this is the case, the implant can be removed and replaced, and most implant manufacturers will cover this problem with a warranty. Therefore, you may not pay a fee either. But if the dental implant itself is broken, it needs to be removed. In terms of re-installation, the method of removing the implant is important.

BROKEN IMPLANT

In general, dental implants do not break. The actual implant is firmly fixed to the bone before the final procedures. The abutment or implant attachment very rarely causes problems. But it is possible that the screw connecting the support to the implant will break. Some implant systems have retaining screws that are changed periodically. If the screw is not tightened properly, it may loosen. As a result of loosening, the support can be detached from the implant or screw.

If the screw is tightened without following the manufacturer’s recommendations, the screw may break again. Implant manufacturers have specially manufactured tools for easily removing and replacing broken screws. The implant supports can also be easily replaced. In the event that the implant actually breaks, the manufacturer will provide the replacement of the implant for free.

DENTAL IMPLANTS AND MISSING TEETH

Why is your implant broken? We would like to know the answer before the installation of a new implant or crown. Dental implants come in different sizes. Sometimes an implant of a smaller diameter is inserted due to a lack of bone. If you have a back tooth to which a smaller diameter implant is attached, and your bites put a lot of pressure on your teeth, there is a possibility that it will be broken. Our second question is, where did your implant break? If the implant neck is broken, it can be removed and replaced with an implant with a larger diameter. If the abutment or the part that enters the implant is broken, a new abutment or crown can be made. If we say it again, your bite structure and the cause of the fracture should be evaluated.

THE COST OF REPLACING A BROKEN IMPLANT

The cost may vary depending on the part that was broken. Most implant manufacturers sell their implants with a lifetime warranty. But when the patient thinks that the implant is broken, it has often been observed that this is due to the abutment or crown. The first thing you need to do should be to find out which company manufactures the implant and which part is actually broken. Most often, dentists cooperate with the patient and the implant manufacturer to help with the costs.

.
IMPLANT FAILURE

Fracture of the implant is a very rare condition. Most likely, the screw connecting the abutment to the implant has been broken. If the implant itself is broken, the implant manufacturer, if it is a prestigious company, will replace the implant at no cost to the surgeon. There are some non-prestigious companies that offer inexpensive implants to dentists, and these companies do not provide warranty service. Companies with worldwide recognition offer a lifetime exchange guarantee. If the implant itself is broken, it must be replaced at no cost to the dentist. Most surgeons and dentists will take care of you, albeit for five years. Although it is very rare, if there is a defect, we do not charge our patients.
