What are implant treatments?
Dental implants have been used to replace the missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium tooth root that is surgically positioned into the jawbone. Implants can be used for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth and in cases where there are no teeth in the mouth.
What kind of problems do we have if we don’t replace the missing teeth?
The teeth in the mouth are exposed to chew in every meal. In the presence of these teeth, increases the work and pressure of other teeth. At this point start the problems slowly. As the missing area is tried to be closed by other teeth, the adjunction teeth lie sideways and the upper tooth extends into the cavity because the missing area is trying to close and help by other teeth. These problems are eliminated when the missing teeth are replaced, and the teeth in the mouth are prolonged. The replacement of the lost tooth is important for the health and function of the teeth and the entire chewing system. When a tooth is missing, a rapid bone desorption begins in the jawbone area where the tooth was placed before. Therefore, you should visit the dentist for the implant procedure as soon as possible after the teeth are removed.
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. They are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent. The replacement of the lost tooth is important for the health and function of the teeth and the entire chewing system.
