The presence of one or more missing teeth in the mouth is considered to be an extremely important problem both in terms of oral and dental health and aesthetics. Implant treatment, which is one of the frequently used dental procedures today, has become an extremely effective alternative to traditional bridge and prosthesis treatments due to the developments in technology and dentistry.
Although there are many developments in oral and dental health, many people are faced with the problem of tooth loss due to tooth decay and other causes. People who have one or more missing teeth in their mouth have been treated with bridges and dentures for many years. On the other hand, these methods have been replaced by implant treatment, which is an aesthetic, reliable and permanent method.
Dental implants can simply be defined as medical devices that are surgically implanted in the jaw to restore the chewing ability and appearance of the person. Dental implants provide the best support for artificial teeth, such as bridges, crowns or dentures.
In cases where teeth are lost due to any injury or disease, complications can develop that cause rapid bone loss, imperfect speech or problems with chewing patterns. If a lost tooth is replaced with a dental implant, a significant improvement is achieved in the patient’s quality of life and health.
Dental implant systems consisting of a dental implant body and a dental implant abutment may also have a fulcrum fixing screw. The body of the dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone instead of the tooth root. The dental implant abutment is usually attached to the implant body with the abutment fixing screw and extends from the gums to the mouth for the artificial teeth attached.
