Implant Prostheses

Implant Prostheses

As a result of the developments in recent years, implant treatment enables many patients to achieve the smile and aesthetic appearance they desire. The fact that implants have natural tooth function without damaging natural teeth also increases the advantages they offer. As a result of all this, dental implants have become extremely important in oral reconstruction. Implant prostheses are one of the dental aesthetic methods that have been widely used in recent years.

What is Implant Prosthesis?

Fixed or removable dentures placed on and supported by the implant are called implant-supported prostheses. Implant prostheses can be preferred in patients with either a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. In other words, there are many patients for whom implant prosthesis can be applied.

Implant prostheses, produced from materials similar to natural teeth, are prostheses with many features that serve to rehabilitate and replace missing teeth. Depending on the patient's condition, removable or fixed prosthetic rehabilitation can be offered. Both of them enable the removal of missing teeth to repair losses and decreases in chewing and phonatory functions and limit the aesthetic defect. The difference, as the name suggests, is that the removable prosthesis can be removed from the mouth by the patient, while the fixed prosthesis is permanently fixed in the mouth and therefore cannot be removed by the patient on his own.

Implant Prosthesis Types

Implant prosthesis types are divided into fixed implant prostheses and removable implant prostheses.

Implant prostheses that are used permanently by sticking or screwing onto the implant are called fixed prostheses. Implant-supported fixed prostheses, in other words crowns and bridges, can be used for both a single tooth missing and complete jaw edentulism.

Prostheses that are applied on fixed implants placed in people without any teeth and can be inserted and removed by the patient are called removable implant prosthesis or removable dentures.

What is an Implant Fixed Prosthesis?

Implant-supported fixed prostheses allow teeth to be restored using restorations fixed to the patient's mouth. Implant-supported fixed dentures, also known as indirect restorations, can be used to restore or repair single or multiple teeth. It can also be preferred for restoring small gaps between teeth.

Fixed implant-supported dentures always remain in the patient's mouth and are placed with surgical procedures. Fixed implant-supported dentures, which are fixed using several dental implants that become an integral part of the jawbone, always remain in the patient's mouth and cannot be removed.

Implant-supported fixed prostheses are considered ideal especially for people who face deterioration in the gums and jawbone. Bone is a living tissue. It needs constant stimulation to maintain its density and volume. Naturally, this stimulation comes from the teeth, and when it is lost, the bone that surrounds and supports them can begin to break down.

When this situation is not prevented, sagging occurs on the person's face. Accordingly, an older appearance may occur on the patient's face. Implant-supported fixed prostheses can stop these negative results and help to have a younger appearance by supporting the facial features provided by the jawbone structure.

Dental implants, which are small screws that function as replacement tooth roots, are placed in the bone just like a natural tooth root. Titanium used in the construction of implants has the ability to fuse with bone through a process called osseointegration.

Implant fixed dentures are artificial teeth that have similar properties to natural teeth, not only aesthetically but also functionally. Fixed implant-supported bridges, which do not slip during eating or speaking, can be used for a long term as proper attention is paid to oral hygiene. They are also known to help prevent bone loss in the jaw.

Implant-supported fixed prostheses offer higher patient satisfaction and success rates than other treatment options. Because there is a significantly reduced mass and no mucosal support is needed, patients can chew more vigorously.

Fixed implant prosthesis can be applied to those who have partial missing teeth, those who have lost all their teeth, those whose teeth are spaced out, those who have physical and chemical wear on their teeth, and those who will undergo smile design.

Why is Implant-Based Fixed Prosthesis Applied?

Bridges or individual crown-shaped crowns are attached to the implants with screws or special adhesives, ensuring that they remain stable in the mouth and function like the patient's own teeth.

Fixed implant prostheses offer aesthetics and comfortable use. Implant-supported fixed dentures, which look and feel like natural teeth, become integral parts of the jawbone after the procedure is completed.

This method, in which the prosthesis is attached to the abutment fixed on the implant with special adhesives, offers more aesthetic results in anterior group restorations. Since there is no screw hole on the prosthesis and the abutment can be produced individually, aesthetic problems that may be caused by implant angulation problems can be prevented. Since porcelain and metal are integrated as a whole, problems such as porcelain fractures are prevented.

What is an Implant Removable Prosthesis?

For many people who do not have teeth in one or both jaws, removable dentures are an economical way to restore their smile. However, dentures are not always easy to fit. They can easily slip out of place while eating or talking. One of the most effective methods that can be preferred to prevent problems that may arise from this situation is to support removable dentures with dental implants.

Dental implants are considered lifelike replacements for individual missing teeth. Although dental implants are one of the most useful methods for people who have most of their natural teeth, it is not a preferred method to install a dental implant for each missing tooth in patients who have no teeth left in one or both jaws. The preferred effective solution is to place at least two dental implants in the jaw to support a removable denture so that it does not come loose when inserted.

Dental implants are small titanium screws that serve the same purpose as the roots of natural teeth. Like natural tooth roots, they are located below the gum line and are not visible in the mouth. In addition, they ensure that the teeth that replace the natural teeth are fixed to the jawbone. Dental implants become part of the gum tissue because titanium has the unique ability to fuse to living bone. When fixed with a prosthesis implant, it does not put destructive pressure on bone tissue.
