Dental implant is one of the best solutions for toothless problem. Patients who have lost one or some teeth but using dentures is very hard for them can choose dental implant treatment.
The first stage for dental implant treatment is dentist examinations. A professional dentist can plan for dental implant treatment by a correct diagnosis and general condition control and considering patient’s oral health. The dentist may order for radiography, if necessary, diagnose implant areas easier.
The next step in one-stage dental implant is preparing selected implant based on the suitable type, quality and price for patient. Then, dental implant is inserted in patient’s jaw bone. It has no side effects or complications for patients.
The dentist considers a rest period for the patient. This time is for creating correct connection between the implant and jaw bone. In this stage, the patient is toothless but he/she can use temporary prosthesis for preserving aesthetic aspects. Obviously, this has a separate cost for the patient.
In the next stage, the site is prepared for inserting dental prosthesis on the dental implant. The dentist should prepare a mold of patient’s teeth. At this point, dental implant has been inserted in patient’s jaw bone and preparing mold is done based on the prosthesis.
The main duty of this prosthesis is creating a stable and strong structure instead of lost teeth. The most important advantage of them is related to aesthetic aspects. The patient can select the color of prosthesis for inserting on the implant but the color harmony between the prosthesis and natural teeth of the patient is one of the duties of the dentist.
These prostheses are also called veneer. They are mainly used as a cover for damaged teeth because of tooth decay or thinned wall teeth or broken teeth. In fact, restoration operation is due to this prosthesis. The crowns that are used in Iran market and are compatible with other natural teeth are porcelain or zirconia crowns.
Implant crown is made in laboratory for 2-stage dental implant. The crown is inserted on the abatement (one of the implant components) by the dentist. At this point, the patient is asked to control the color and comfort of the prosthesis. It will be used as permanent crown, if the patient is satisfied of it.
It is necessary to observe all oral health points for dental implant similar to natural tooth to improve dental implant lifespan. It is recommended to avoid chewing hard or harmful foods. Using regular mouthwash and floss is necessary.
The best implant brand is the one which its components are made from the best materials with long life span. There are lots of dental implant brands in Iran market and the dentist should select the best ones in accordance with the treatment plan. The dental implant components include fixture, abatement, cover screw, connection pin, healing abatement and plastic abatement. At first, the fixture is inserted in the patient’s jaw and then the abatement and the crown are put on it.
In the case of lost tooth; the gum rolls back and surrounding bone depletes so a severe damage will occur for adjacent teeth and will lead to tooth decay. Some of the other problems for ignoring dental implant treatments include problems while talking or eating, dislocation of teeth, headache and so on. Another negative result of not having dental implant is jaw bone defects and damages.
Sometimes a young people lose his/her teeth because of an accident. The first question here is “What is the appropriate age for dental implant treatment?” And the answer is “it is recommended to wait until 18 when the final growth of bone and teeth is completed”. After this period it is allowed to have dental implant so that implant will not seem to be shorter than the other teeth.
The impacts of Beta Blockers and Heartburn drugs on implant treatment According to American researchers’ reports on implant patients; we can conclude that heartburn drugs have great influence on implant success rate. Based on the dentists, the percentage of success in dental implant has a direct relation with healing procedure and compatibility of implant with patient’s jaw bone.
