How is consultation before dental implant surgery?-antalya
  • What advantages can dental implants offer?

  • What kind of anaesthetic will be applied throughout the procedure?
  • What is the anticipated post-operative recovery period?
  • What dangers or issues might arise during a dental implant procedure?
  • What kind of aftercare will be required following the operation?
  • The dental implant's lifespan is how long?

The consultation process may move forward as long as the adult who wants to have dental implants can show appropriate levels of both general health and oral health.

The patient's mouth will be X-rayed, and the teeth will be modelled. This will verify some information about the patient's dental problems.

Another diagnostic technique that might be applied at this time is a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan.

The mouth is topographically represented in a 3D picture by the CBCT scan. This gives the dentist the opportunity to assess bone density and determine the precise location of the teeth and other structures.

When bone density is insufficient, the dentist may suggest procedures designed to increase bone thickness, resulting in a suitable location for a dental implant.

Poor healing rates can be a result of diseases including haemophilia, diabetes, and osteoporosis.

The dentist will take these factors into account when determining if there is a considerable impact on the odds of success.

What if I require a bone graft?

In cases when the patient has had bone loss or bone degradation in the area where the dental implant is planned to be placed, a bone transplant may be necessary.

When bad bacteria are allowed to build up near the gum line, infections may chew into the tooth and supporting bone, which typically results in bone deterioration.

A bone transplant is one of the major alternatives, while there are other methods that can aid in increasing bone density.

An "onlay graft," also known as a bone transplant, is a surgical operation that typically entails preparing the graft site and inserting a healthy section of bone from the patient.

Cadaver Bone, commonly known as "allografts" from donors may also be a good alternative in many situations.

Bovine derivation autogenous grafts provide choices and are often employed (there are also synthetic versions of bone that are used).

Based on the anticipated performance and implant needs, the surgeon will choose the type of graft material in conjunction with the patient.

It normally takes between 6 and 12 months after surgery before the dental implant treatment may proceed, depending on the size of the graft and the patient's natural healing rate.

Are there any alternatives to a bone graft?

Dental implants are not recommended in cases of poor bone density since the implant site is unlikely to heal completely and correctly.

To increase the amount and quality of bone available, the dentist may suggest a bone graft.

However other patients might opt to forego undergoing a bone graft operation, which necessitates surgery to remove healthy bone from the patient's own body (typically from the hip or leg).

It might take a new bone anywhere between and 12 months6 to mend.

The approach known as "directed tissue regeneration" can also be applied. This entails creating a barrier between the bone and the soft tissues in the mouth to promote the growth of new bone cells.

This method was created because bone cannot grow in any place where soft tissue may since it develops more quickly than bone.

There is no need to remove the barrier because it is absorbed by the body.

What can cause bone loss?

There are several contextual reasons that might cause a patient to lose bone mass.

For instance, the bone at the extraction site may have already started to shrink if a patient has lost a tooth (either as a result of trauma or as part of a previous dental treatment plan).

Bone reabsorption is a frequent process in which the body reabsorbs previously dense but no longer required bone.

Those who have lost several teeth may have a reduced bone height as a result of this procedure, making dentures increasingly uncomfortable over time.
