The solution to many dental problems that may occur in the mouth is solved with the application of dental implants. Treatment with a specialist dentist causes happy smiles and solid self-confidence.
However, in some special cases, the dentist makes the best decision for the patient’s oral health by suggesting alternatives to dental implants. Treatments that can replace dental implants are also available thanks to the development of technology.
What is a dental implant?
Implants are screws made of titanium that are used in the treatment of missing teeth and placed inside the jawbone. A dental prosthesis is placed on these screws. The advantage of implant treatment over other treatments is that neighboring teeth are not damaged. So the adjacent teeth do not need to be cut.
Implant treatment is done by giving the patient light sedation. Detailed examination and x-ray are required before the procedure. Measurements of the jaw bones and remaining teeth are taken.
There are two options for placing dental implants.
In the one-step procedure, a temporary cap is attached after the implant is placed. In the two-stage process, after the dental implant is inserted, it is covered with the gum and left to heal.
Prosthetic heads are then attached.
In both cases, a temporary bridge is placed and a healing period of 3 months for the lower jaw and six months for the upper jaw is expected.
If an implant-supported treatment option is not preferred in single tooth deficiencies, an alternative treatment method to the implant is a bridge prosthesis.
What is a bridge prosthesis?
If there are one or more missing teeth and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the missing area, this is a restoration to complete the missing teeth by taking support from the teeth on both sides.
Bridge prostheses, like crown prostheses, are adhered to the teeth to keep them stable.
How a dental prosthesis is made?
The dental bridge prosthesis is applied after a several-stage process. These stages are as follows:
