Problems that begin with gum problems in patients with missing teeth can cause diseases of the stomach and digestive system.

If precautions are not taken, it can even trigger diabetes and a heart attack. Antalya dental and maxillofacial surgery specialist Doctor stressed that food reaches the stomach in large pieces without literally chewing due to missing teeth, especially in patients with intestinal problems, seriously threatens.

Dental and maxillofacial surgery specialist Doctor in Antalya said, “implants applied instead of missing teeth, blood disease people, hemophilia (bleeding does not stop), leukemia, such as blood table problems can be applied to everyone except patients.” was said.

In a statement to Turkey Medicals news, Dt said that one of the most important and sensitive issues that come to mind when it comes to oral health is implants, stating that the instruments called implants are devices based on titanium in the jaw, which act as a tooth root and allow you to make fixed dentures.

Maxillofacial surgeon from Clinic, who noted that implants can be applied to the patient with very small surgical interventions, Dr, thus saving patients from moving prosthetics, similar to the teeth they have lost, their mouth does not come out, they provide the opportunity to use fixed prosthetics that do not play, he said.


Dt also expressed that the implant is applied instead of missing teeth, but it is not necessary to apply the implant in all cases of missing teeth, if the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth area also need to be treated, if there are large fillings on these teeth, if there are conditions such as fractures, in this case, a bridge instead of an implant is a more logical solution.

According to Dt, the implant can be used for life if the patient brushes his teeth regularly, and what patients who have implants need to do is brush their teeth properly on a regular basis.

The implant’s compatibility process may depend on a person’s age and history of the disease in the past

The Implant can be applied to anyone except people with blood disease, patients with bleeding, hemophilia, leukemia, etc. After that, a waiting period was assigned according to the person’s position, Dt said. Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. stressed that some patients wear their prosthesis without problems after the implant application, but some patients should wait 3 weeks, sometimes 1.5 months. He noted that this can extend depending on the person’s age and the ailments they have experienced.


Dt. by pointing to the necessity to do by the surgeon maxillofacial implant, the implant operation takes 3-5 minutes of application the professional surgical intervention is carried out by the hands of competent, complications can occur and in this case that could swell of the patient’s face, even he noted that this situation could lead to inflammation and infection.

The patient must have completed the development of the jaw in order to make implant in Turkey, which is about 18 years old, and after this period, implants can be made in all age groups, he said. As an example, ‘87-year-old sugar and blood pressure disease with a patient of our implants have made, fixed teeth on it, two years of healthy use,’ he said.
