Dental Implants – What Is Implant?

Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. If you have missing teeth or a denture that slips or clicks, dental implants can provide the comfort and freedom you deserve. Dr. Erdem Kaya uses dental implants to anchor implant crowns, bridges, partials, and dentures. Because dental implants replace your tooth root and crown, they imitate nature for a smile that looks and feels terrific. Implants also stop the bone loss that occurs when natural teeth are missing.

 

What Are Dental Implants?
The dental implant procedure involves positioning a small titanium post in the socket of a missing tooth. After your jawbone integrates with the post to form a solid anchor, Dr. Erdem Kaya  will attach an attractive crown atop the post. A few implants strategically placed in your jawbone can support a prosthetic containing multiple replacement teeth, such as a denture.

Why Dental Implants?
Once you learn about dental implants, you finally realize there is a way to improve your life. When you lose several teeth – whether it’s a new situation or something you have lived with for years – chances are you have never become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself.

 

What Kind Of Dentist Does Dental Implants?
Following dental school, oral and maxillofacial surgeons complete a minimum of four years in a hospital-based surgical residency program. They train alongside medical residents in internal medicine, general surgery and anesthesiology, and also spend time in otolaryngology, plastic surgery, and emergency medicine. Their training focuses almost exclusively on the hard and soft tissue of the face, mouth and jaws.

 

Oral Surgeons are specially trained in surgical preparation and placement of dental implants and the other surgical treatments. They often deal with the more complicated surgical requirements of dental implant patients.

 

Why Select Dental Implants Over More Traditional Types Of Restorations?
There are several reasons: Why sacrifice the structure of surrounding good teeth to bridge a space? In addition, removing a denture or a “partial” at night may be inconvenient, not to mention that dentures that slip can be uncomfortable and rather embarrassing.

 

Are You A Candidate For Implants?
If you are considering implants, your mouth must be examined thoroughly and your medical and dental history reviewed. If your mouth is not ideal for implants, ways of improving outcome, such as bone grafting, may be recommended.

 

What Type Of Anesthesia Is Used?
The majority of dental implants and bone graft can be performed in the office under local anesthesia, with or without general anesthesia.

 

Do Implants Need Special Care?
Once the implants are in place, they will serve you well for a life time if you take care of them and keep your mouth healthy. This means taking the time for good oral hygiene (brushing and flossing) and keeping regular appointments with your dental specialists.
