What are the advantages of a teeth implant?

Dental implants are the most successful treatment procedure applied to compensate for tooth loss today

due to the numerous benefits they provide. The advantages of implant placement are having a natural
smile, being able to communicate and eat again, and saving money.

Permanent: A dental implant can be used just like a natural tooth after it has been safely installed. The implant blends in with the surrounding teeth and has a long service life. Brushing and flossing regularly are enough forms of care. Although implants do not deteriorate, the surrounding teeth are nevertheless susceptible to bacterial infection. It is vital to keep the implant clean, to avoid jawbone infection, and to keep the gums and teeth surrounding it healthy.

Simple to change:
 One of the most appealing aspects of dental implants is that they are made up of three distinct components: the root, the connection, and the restoration (including the crown). When one of these parts breaks down, instead of completely replacing the dental implant only the broken part is corrected. The crown has the same hardness as a real tooth and, like natural teeth, can be damaged. As a result, it is the most often altered section.

Keeps the jawbone healthy: The implant is the only form of tooth replacement that keeps the jawbone active. Because the titanium alloy pole mixes with the genuine jawbone, it builds the bone and keeps it from deteriorating. This, in turn, helps maintain oral health and the health of the teeth around it. 

It makes eating and chewing food easier: Unlike dentures and bridges, eating and chewing food with implants feel the same. This is because implants have a similar feel to real teeth. There is no restriction on what you can eat after the dental implant treatment is completed. You can eat and drink without fear
if you like crispy snacks, items that require chewing, or hot or cold drinks. You just must be careful not to
overdo it on sweets.

These discomforts will subside with using medications provided by dentists.

Pain that occurs after all oral and dental treatments may occur after implant treatment. It is normal for problems such as pain and swelling to occur after implants. To end these problems, your dentist will give you painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. In this way, you can prevent or alleviate the pain after the implant. If the problems that occur despite using these medications do not go away or do not ease, other problems with treatment may have arisen. For this reason, we recommend that you contact your specialist dentist as soon as possible.

What if I have a problem with the teeth implant?

After a failed implant application or when there is a problem with the implant, a re-implant application can be performed on the tooth.

The area can be closed again; bone tissue added if necessary, and the tooth left to heal.
