Benefits and Risks of Dental Implant

For a confident smile, it is important to have dental aesthetics, the glazing of the teeth, and the full number of teeth in the mouth, that is, complete teeth in the mouth. There are many treatment methods to make the smile aesthetic. We have compiled information about implant treatment from these methods for you.

Veneer and Crown: What’s the difference?

Veneers and crowns are long-lasting solutions for patients who suffer from some functional and cosmetic dental problems and are looking to bring back their smiles. Dull, discolored or misshapen teeth, gaps between teeth, and broken teeth can be addressed with veneers and/or crowns.

Veneers and crowns are both dental restoration methods that can improve the look and function of your teeth. The main difference is that a veneer covers only the front of your tooth and a crown covers the entire tooth. Here’s a look at the differences between veneers and crowns, the pros and cons of each, and how they’re used.

All-on-4 Implants: How Long does it last?

As long as All-on-4 implants fuse with the patient’s bone during the healing process, they should have a lifespan that is similar to traditional implants. Most dental professionals agree that patients can expect All-on-4 implants to last at least 20 to 25 years, with the potential to last the duration of the patient’s life.

Diet Restrictions Following Your Surgery

The best way to avoid complications following your All-on-4 treatment is to maintain a soft diet for a set period of time. Eating tough foods immediately after your surgery could compromise their longevity, which is why you should keep the following diet restrictions in mind. For the first three months after your surgery, stick to a diet of:

Delicious soup
Soups with soft and small pieces of food
  • Apple sauce
  • Cooked or ripe fruits
  • Soft veggies
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Roasted and stewed chicken
  • Broiled fish
  • Tofu
  • Soups with soft and small pieces of food
  • Pancakes
  • Muffins
  • Waffles
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Soft-cooked pasta
  • Oatmeal
  • Pudding
  • Ice cream

Prosthesis Lifespan

It is important that our Dental Excellence patients understand that All-on-4 implants are made up of two parts: the implants themselves and the prosthesis that is supported by the implants. Although All-on-4 implants can last a lifetime with good oral health, the prosthesis is likely to wear down more quickly.
Dental restorations, like fixed dentures, are susceptible to wear and damage associated with biting and chewing. Dental restorations are composed of durable materials, but they are likely to require replacement at some point. With proper care and good oral hygiene habits, the prosthesis that is attached to All-on-4 implants should last at least 10 to 15 years. When the prosthesis needs to be replaced, we can do so without disrupting the implants that are in the jaw.

Extending Treatment Results

The lifespan of All-on-4 implants, including the prosthesis piece, depends largely on a patient’s oral habits. We recommend that our Dental centre patients practice these tips to extend the lifespan of All-on-4 treatment results:

  1. Visit your dentist for cleanings every 6 months;
  2. Brush and floss regularly;
  3. Limit foods that are particularly hard, crunchy, or sticky;
  4. Avoid using the teeth as tools (opening bottles or bags with your teeth, don’t chew pencils or ice cubes);
  5. Refrain from grinding or clenching the teeth;
  6. Use a custom-made night guard at night to protect your All-on-4 implants;

How Do I Clean All-on-4 implants?

Since the bridge portion of the restoration is fixed, cleaning it with a typical toothbrush is not the most ideal. Instead, it is encouraged that you use a water flosser at least twice a day. Look for the access points that allow for the greatest dislodgment of food debris. Keep the speed of the water flosser to a low or medium setting to prevent tissue detachment.

Next, make sure to floss underneath the bridge daily. Most dentists will recommend brands that have worked for other patients, whether they should be of the thinner variety or disposable versions attached to handles for easier movement. Take your time when customizing your oral care as it will be very important in extending the life span of your implants. You may also want to consider an interdental tooth brush specifically design for dental implants, which can be found in most major grocery stores and pharmacies. To clean the portion of the bridge that transitions to soft tissue, use a sulcus brush. This brush is often considered to be more comfortable as it is much smaller than a normal toothbrush. Use it to clean and massage areas of the bridge that come into contact with tissue.

Bruxism and All-on-4 implants

Normal chewing places pressure on the bone through teeth or implants. For example, a steak needs about 40 pounds of pressure from your jaws to chew. Science has found that in the actual act of chewing, the teeth are only touching for 5 minutes in total during a meal. Contrast that to unconscious clenching or grinding your teeth, when your teeth can touch for 8 hours per day in total and can press on each other with 200 to 500 pounds of pressure. That is a lot of force, and that can easily break a natural tooth.

Although teeth grinding can be caused by stress and anxiety, it often occurs during sleep. Most people are unaware that they grind their teeth. However, a dull, constant headache or sore jaw is a telltale symptom of bruxism. In many cases people suffering from TMJ/TMD report chronic pain in the jaw, teeth, face, head, neck, shoulders, or back, or any combination of these areas.

Night guards are designed to remove stress from the TM joint and reduce the damage from grinding and clenching. Train yourself not to clench or grind your teeth. If you notice that you clench or grind during the day. Think lips together, teeth apart. This practice helps train your jaw muscles to relax.

All-on-4 implants are a strong and durable alternative for patients to consider when traditional dental implants aren’t a good fit.

Which is better All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants procedure?

While researching dental implants as an option for replacing missing teeth, you may learn about both “all-on-4” and “all-on-6” dental implant procedures. With the traditional full mouth reconstruction, dentists in the past would need to use 8 to 10 dental implants per arch in order to provide enough foundation for the missing teeth to be replaced. With the “All on” procedure, the dental implants are inserted into the jawbone at an angle which provides more coverage in the jawbone to have a replacement teeth cemented on.

All-on-4 dental implants

All-on-4 dental implants technology is a patented development of the American-Swiss company Nobel, in 2003. This involves placing four implants per arch without grafting and sinus liftings: two front area vertical implants, and two back area angled implants. Thanks to angled implants, stable prosthetic force distribution can be provided.

If you’ve already decided to take a dive in the “All on” dental procedure, you may be wondering just what the difference may be between the all-on-4 or all-on-6 dental implants.

The clearest difference between all-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants is the number of implants that are placed in the mouth. The more implants you have, the more strength and stability are provided for your jawbone. Each dental implant that is placed in your jaw helps reinforce the bone it’s implanted in. Your teeth actually serve an unseen purpose: they help keep the bones in the jaw stable. Without teeth, the jawbones begin to deteriorate. For this reason, sometimes people who wear dentures for a long time may appear to have a sunken jaw when they take out their dentures. This can make people look much older than they are. When people have dental implants, the jawbone is stimulated and maintains its strength, preventing this sunken appearance.

All-on-6 dental implants

All-on-6 dental implants provide a stronger, more stable base for the prosthetic dental arch, resulting in a longer-lasting, more comfortable smile. Taking into consideration the mechanics of biting and chewing, additional stability and a more even distribution of pressure may help extend the life of your prosthetic arch. However All-on-6 is not always better procedure than all-on-4. Patients who don’t have enough bone strength to withstand the pressure of the additional two dental implants may benefit more with the All-on-4 dental implants procedure. The best way to decide which option is better for you, this is to speak to our professional team at our dental centre in Turkey after a full consultation and examination of your jawbone has been made.

About the All-on-4 / All-on-6 Prosthesis Method:

There are 3 different prothesis options on the All-on-4 / All-on-6 systems:

  • Screw retained porcelain crowns: A metal framework with layered porcelain in tooth and tissue colors.
  • Screw retained zirconia crowns: A milled zirconia framework with layered porcelain in tooth and tissue colors.
  • Hybrid Prosthesis: A milled titanium framework with layered composite in tooth and tissue colors.

Hybrid Prosthesis vs. Implant Bridge: What’s the Difference?

By this point, you’re probably wondering what exactly a Hybrid Prosthesis is. It’s not quite the same as an implant bridge. Essentially, it’s just a long bridge that looks like natural teeth. This is possible using multiple implants that are permanently placed within your mouth. You’ll have a temporary bridge at first, which will soon be replaced with a permanent set of teeth. With this procedure, you’ll never have to take your teeth out to clean them like dentures. Instead, good oral habits at home will keep your new teeth clean and healthy. Further, these teeth will support the bone structures in your face just like real teeth.

Hybrid Prosthesis

Unlike implant supported fixed bridges, hybrid prostheses replace missing alveolar height by means of pink composite resin used for teeth retention. Hybrid prostheses generally require fewer implants, and alveolar ridge morphology is not as critical because implants do not have to be placed “exactly where the teeth are.” This is due to the use of angle modification abutments (i.e., multiunit abutments). In other words, when there is a need to replace teeth but not alveolar height, implant fixed prosthesis is a viable option. When alveolar morphology is less than ideal due to extensive bone resorption, either in some areas or the complete ridge, the hybrid restoration is a good option.

Implant Bridge

When treating edentulous patients, an alternative to hybrid prosthesis is the using of implant supported fixed prosthesis (i.e., implant bridges). This modality entails placement of more implants (six to eight) to provide multiple implant bridges per arch. Adequate alveolar bone height and width are essential for implant placement. Advanced bone loss can compromise the esthetic and biomechanical aspects of the implant prosthesis due to elongated clinical crowns and uneven prosthetic contours.

A Hybrid Prosthesis, sometimes called Teeth-in-One Day, is an innovative type of implant surgery used for teeth replacement. Our dentists work alongside an oral surgeon who takes your teeth out and places the implants. Dr. Fatih Erkun at Dental Excellence Turkey has led the industry at the placement of these prostheses for years.

All-on-6
All-on-6

A state of the art treatment called Hybrid Prosthesis; you can go from having no teeth to a full set of permanent teeth in a single day.  We’re able to offer implant teeth in one day at an affordable rate at dental centre in Turkey.

1. Hybrid bridges can restore tooth and tissue loss as to establish proper speech and chewing. They help maintain tooth, bite and jaw alignment by preventing remaining teeth from shifting out of position.

2. Because of the less stress distribution, temporomandibular joint takes less force. As result it’s beneficial against temporomandibular disorders.

3. Long gaps where multiple teeth are missing can be treated effectively with implant supported bridges.

4. If changes have occurred in your mouth in relation to the hybrid, your dentist can remove it to have changes made to it.

You’re bound to have questions about getting treatments such as dental implants and veneers in Turkey though.

Price 

The major reason for traveling to Turkey for dental treatment is the price. Patients can save from UK dental costs 70%. The more extensive and expensive the treatment, of course, the more you are saving–and that is why Turkey’s teeth implants (including all-on-4) and veneers are particularly popular.

Patients can save money, however, by visiting a Turkish dental clinic for other cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening and even crowns, bridges and dentures. Simply put, if your teeth are in a bad state and the treatment you need in your home country seems unaffordable, a dental holiday in Turkey could be your remedy.
