Frequently Asked Questions
- What is an implant?
In modern dentistry, implants are used for missing one or more teeth. Implants serve as the missing tooth root. In this way, all functions of the real tooth are fulfilled in the best way with the porcelain to be made. In addition, as in the process of completing missing teeth by making a porcelain bridge, the intact teeth on both sides of the cavity are not abraded and touched, and the integrity of the teeth is preserved. Since dental functions will continue in the implanted area, bone resorption in that area is stopped.
- Is There an Age Limit for Implant Applications?
Implants can be applied at any age. However, it is decided after the examination whether the jawbone is sufficient or not. The amount of jawbone, the quality of the bone, the existing teeth in the mouth are effective in this decision.
- When Can I Fully Use the Implants I Have Had?
After a comprehensive examination, your doctor will decide which type of implant will be suitable for you. In some cases, porcelain teeth and implants can be applied on the same day. The tooth can be used that day. In some cases, osseointegration (fusion of the bone with the implant) is expected between two and six months. After the osseointegration is completed, the porcelain tooth can be attached to the implant.
- Do Implants Have Side Effects and How Long Do Implants Live?
Implants made in accordance with the rules do not have any side effects. Implant material is a non-allergenic and tissue compatible material. Depending on the structure of the jawbone and post-treatment care, it has a lifetime of at least 15 to 25 years or a lifetime.
- If You Have Diabetes Or Heart, Can It Still Be Implanted?
If your disease is under control and under the control of a doctor, no disease is an obstacle for the implant.
- Laminas Are Made of Very Thin Porcelain, But Is It Tough Enough?
Although veneers are made of very thin porcelain, they are adhered to the tooth with a special bonding system and after bonding, they are at least as strong as your own tooth. Under normal conditions, it is not possible for the laminates to come out of the tooth or break after they have adhered. If a problem occurs in the tooth after gluing the laminate, the lamina can be cleaned by abrading like a tooth, and if necessary, a filling or a lamina can be applied to that area.
