Dental Implants in Turkey
Dental Implants in Turkey - All On 4 / All On 6 Dental Treatments
Human may lose their teeth in their life, whether due accidents or natural causes, and dental implants are considered the best solution to replace the missing teeth.
Basically, a dental implant is a ‘screw’ that goes through the bone and plays the role of a tooth root.
The implants are made of a variety of materials such as titanium, zirconium and ceramics.
Titanium is the most preferred and suggested material with benefits like it being biocompatible.
The implant used in the treatment of missing teeth is placed into the jawbone and acts like a tooth root.
Thus we perform your treatment without damaging to firm teeth located next to the missing teeth, which means without cutting or shaving any tooth.
Zirconium Implant : are produced in order to increase the resistance of titanium implants and generally used for rising the endurance in the narrow jawbone. There is no difference from titanium except durability.

What is All On Four
The All on 4 technique is rapid and effective method so as to eliminate the conditions require advanced surgery due to insufficiency of bone, bone joint and sinus lifting in patients who have no teeth or are likely to remain toothless.
‘All on 4’ treatment is the technique in which fixed full jaw prosthetic restoration is performed on 4-6 implants in the same day by surgery.
The difference between standard implants and ‘All on four’ implants is their positioning within mouth.
Normally 8 or 10 implants can be located in a jaw which is absence of teeth, but 4 implants are sufficient for this treatment by All on 4 technique.
When the new crows are returned to the clinic, they will be cemented to the teeth.
This whole treatment may take 2-3 visits to your dentist in 1 week.

Who Can Get Implant Treatment Done ?
Dental Implants treatment can be carried out the people who are over 18 and have a proper jawbone structure for implant and who have completed facial development.
In diabetics, after the confirmation done by their doctor with follow-up, all essential examinations are carried out and the treatment is started.
Patients who take bisphosphonate pills due to radiotherapy, chemotherapy and bone resorption should be tended prosthetic (artificial teeth) treatments rather than implant.
Patients should have enough bone and healthy gums to hold the implant. Otherwise implant cannot hold the bones and it might fail.
They also must be committed to good oral hygiene. People who smokes a lot and suffering from chronic disorders such as diabetes or patients who have had radiation therapy need to be get checked their compatibility.
What is The Process of Implant Treatment ?
Waiting For Bone Growth
Osseointegration (oss-ee-oh-in-tuh-GRAY-shun) starts after the metal implant post is placed in your jawbone.
The jawbone grows into and joins with the surface of the dental implant throughout this procedure.
This process, which can take many months, assists in establishing a stable foundation for your new artificial tooth, much like roots do for natural teeth.
Placing The Abutment
When osseointegration is complete, further surgery may be required to insert the abutment, which is the portion to which the crown will eventually be attached.
This small surgery is usually performed in an outpatient setting under local anaesthetic.
• Your oral surgeon reopens your gums to expose the dental implant before placing the abutment.
• The dental implant is attached to the abutment.
• The gum tissue is then closed around the abutment, but not over it.
When the dental implant metal post is inserted, the abutment is sometimes linked to it. This eliminates the need for a second surgical procedure.
However, because the abutment extends outside the gumline, it is visible when you open your mouth – and will remain so until your dentist completes the tooth prosthesis.
Some people choose to have the abutment installed in a separate surgery because they don’t like the way it looks.
Your gums must recover for two weeks after the abutment is implanted before the artificial tooth can be connected.
In Which Cases is Implant Not Carried Out ?
In Diabetes and Diabetes Patients;
It is not possible to say that implants are never applied to patients with diabetes.
The level of the disease must be under control to perform implant process in diabetic patients.
Diabetes patients are considered to be risky due to both slow tissue healing and high risk of infection.
Diabetics who get implant done should not miss dental controls after treatment and should pay close attention to the hygiene rules required for oral care.
As high blood pressure patients are more sensitive to conditions such as pain or stress, blood pressure might rise whilst implant treatment and can lead to troublesome problems.
For this reason, blood pressure of patient should be inspected until implant process finishes.
Can Implants Be Rejected By The Body ?
Dental implants are made of substances that do not have any side effects for the organism and have been studied for years with intensive research.
These substances have never been part of a living organism.
Titanium used for implant treatment is the most used and accepted implant material all over the world.
It is used by dentists as it adapts quickly to the body and is not easily rejected by the body.
However, there may be some risks of infection in patients as a result of not performing the correct oral care and not following the hygiene rules after the implant treatment.
Situations That The Jaw Bone is Not Suitable;
In implant applications, the quantity of the jawbone where the implant will be placed is very important.
Titanium implants are usually produced in a certain diameter and length.
The dentist decides the implant size according to the condition of the jaw bone.
If patient’s jawbone is not enough thick or long to allow implant application, Bone grafting makes it possible for people with inadequate bone to benefit from dental implants; allowing them to look forward to having a solution for missing teeth using implants.
We will discuss with the patient and it can be decided to make that the dentist fit the jaw bone by surgical intervention.
Implant application is very risky in patients with blood clotting disorders; therefore it is not usually applied.
