IS AN IMPLANT NECESSARY AFTER TOOTH EXTRACTION?

.
.
DO YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR MOUTH AFTER YOUR TOOTH IS PULLED OUT DUE TO TOOTH DECAY OR TOOTH DAMAGE?

When your tooth is pulled out, it becomes quite demoralizing for the patient if the gap it forms is in a place that looks easy in the mouth. But it also creates changes that you may not immediately notice. In the absence of a tooth, the jawbone below the area begins to deteriorate due to the lack of warning from the tooth. Also, the open space leaves room for the displacement of the surrounding teeth. This change can eventually affect your smile, and the change in alignment can affect your ability to chew properly and even contribute to jaw joint disorders.

In short, although the newly opened area on your smile may seem insignificant, your chewing power and even your bone health may be compromised.

Usually, gaps formed by other options such as bridges and partial dentures were filled, now implants are becoming the best treatment option.

.
SHOULD AN IMPLANT BE MADE INSTEAD OF THE MISSING TOOTH?

As mentioned, dental implants in Antalya are not your only option to replace the missing tooth. In some cases, such as the back molars, it may not be necessary. In other cases, there may be options for a bridge or partial prosthesis, but they are not permanent and may require transplant dental treatments in the future. Also, the prostheses used can contribute to and even accelerate bone loss, especially if they become loose and rub against the bone ridge below the gum line.

.
IN WHICH CASES AND FOR WHOM IS MISSING TOOTH TREATMENT WITH AN IMPLANT SUITABLE?

– If you have a risk of bone loss,

– If you are missing more than one adjacent tooth,

– If you are experiencing tooth slippage and need tooth stability,

– If you are looking for a more permanent solution to tooth loss,

– If you have healthy mouth tissue, have enough bones, or are a good candidate for a bone graft,

– If you don’t want to wear dentures,

– If you do not have any health conditions that can affect your overall health and bone healing.

HOW LONG AFTER TOOTH EXTRACTION CAN AN IMPLANT BE MADE?

How long after tooth extraction, you can have an implant depends on many different factors, such as your overall health, the presence of infection around the removed tooth, and the health of the surrounding tissue and bone. Implant placement oral surgery is divided into three main categories:

  • Immediate placement
    .
  • Early placement
    .
  • Delayed placement

Immediate implant placement: If your tissue is healthy and you have enough bone structure, implant placement can occur immediately after shooting. This usually occurs when your lost tooth is due to trauma or injury. After removal, a titanium screw is inserted into the bone. Over the next three to six months, a process called osseointegration takes place. During this procedure, your bone penetrates the rod. When this happens, you will be ready to install permanent coating. This instant placement helps prevent possible bone loss.

Early implant placement: Early implant placement occurs two to three months after your tooth extraction. This minimum time requirement is usually caused by damaged gums and supporting tissue, or by an infection that needs to heal before implant placement. It is important that the implant procedure is performed after a three-month period, since half of the bone resorption may occur within the first three months after the extraction. As with the option of immediate implant placement, a titanium screw is inserted and you need three to six months for recovery before the prosthetic coating is permanently put in place.

Delayed implant placement: In cases where you have had a rotten tooth for some time, your gums and tissues may be in poor condition and bone loss may already exist. When this occurs, you may need a bone grafting procedure to ensure adequate bone stability for your implant. The bone grafting procedure requires three to six months of recovery for your implant procedure to be an option. When the recovery is complete, the procedure is the same. The titanium screw is inserted into the bone and you wait for the next three to six months for the area to heal and for the rod to attach to the bone. After complete recovery, the permanent prosthesis is installed in its place.

If you are going to have a tooth removed or if you have already had it removed, if you have a missing tooth problem, you should visit your dentist to get information about your treatment options and specific to your condition.
