When there are no teeth in the mouth, either you need to use a plug-in denture, or take advantage of the implant tooth comfort …
Now, almost every problem has become to have a solution. In dentistry, patients with tooth loss can solve these problems successfully, especially with the help of implant technology. How is the implant dental treatment needed sometimes with a single loss of teeth and sometimes with loss of all teeth? What are the prices of this treatment? What is done on the implant? One of the most asked questions is how many implants are needed to make a fixed prosthesis for people who have no teeth in their mouths?
In fact, each question finds a different answer depending on the case. However, people want to have general knowledge before they have their treatment, and they try to tell their problems by asking questions what they can be more or less like. You have no teeth in your mouth or your doctor told you that all your teeth should now be removed and that they need to be implanted instead.
In any case, if your teeth are also a problem and if you do not have a good oral care what treatment is done, you need to know that long term success is not possible in the treatment. Your dentists will tell you that you will have no trouble with the treatments that will be given to you by the dental clinics. It is a prerequisite for you to have a good oral care. You will lose the best implant or best dental treatment to be done after a period of time without regular tooth brushing and dentist checks without having to care for your own teeth.
If there is no tooth in the mouth, 7 or 8 implants on the upper jaw are needed to make a fixed prosthesis. 5-7 implants on the lower jaw provide the desired resistance and carrying capacity. In most cases, 6 implants are applied to lower jaw and 7 to upper jaws. According to mouth size and jaw structure, the prosthesis, which is composed of 26 to 28 teeth for the whole jaw implant, is made on the implant.
The difference in implant numbers depends on the bone condition of the person. Bone length, width, bone quality, sinus tilt and other factors increase or decrease the number of implants in all jaw implant treatments.
In some cases where the jawbone is not of sufficient quality, fixed prosthesis and crowns can be made by placing 4-implant angles in the so-called “all on four” system for the lower jaw in the treatment of total toothlessness. Again, in some cases where the quality of the jawbone is inadequate, a combined hybrid moving prosthesis can be performed with two implants inserted into the entire toothless jaw. Thanks to the new technologies, implantation can be successfully applied to many cases that can not be applied before. You can contact us for further information.
In a totally toothless mouth, how many implants can be clearly made for a fixed prosthesis can be clarified after a panoramic x-ray and a detailed examination. If sufficient data for planning can not be obtained, planning can be done after the CT scan. Clinical examinations, online consultations and panoramic filming are free at all our clinics.
I have some teeth in my mouth. What should I do in this situation?
We call this as a regional toothlessness. How many teeth should be made to the region concerned in regional toothlessness varies from case to case. The status of your jaw bone structure and the position of your healthy teeth are the main factors that determine the number and location of implants. Again, the type of prosthesis requested can affect the number and position of the implants to be implanted. For example, two implants may be sufficient as there may be three implants in the region where 4 teeth are missing. After taking a x-ray and examination, the implant counts and positions can be determined in a healthy way.
If you are applying to us from a different country; you can send your panoramic picture taken in any clinic online. We can offer you a complete assessment and planning within 24 hours.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Reduce the bone thinning: When you lose your teeth, there is no structure that can hold the surrounding bone tissue, and the bone is reduced in volume and becomes thin. The implantation of the teeth, placed in place of your pulled tooth, helps prevent bone loss by triggering bone growth.
Organize your eating functions: Once dental implants are placed in your jaw, you can eat what you like just as you do in your natural teeth. In individuals who use prostheses, it is unlikely that some hard food beaten or fruit such as apples are bitten, but in cases where they want to be eaten, there are prosthetic stumps and pain complaints. You can comfort your eating functions with two or four implants that will be placed under the prosthesis even if you have no teeth in your mouth or even if you do not have enough bone tissues.
Smooth the speech: Some loss of teeth can cause some phonation problems while talking. Also, in patients who use prosthesis, it may be difficult to pronounce some of the letters that the prosthesis comes out of or removes. In dental implanted mouths, such problems are never seen.
Maintain oral hygiene: The troublesome cleaning of bridges or removable prosthesis can lead to reduced oral hygiene, resulting in some gum problems. On the other hand, the cleaning of dental implants is just like brushing, using dental floss and oral hygiene care as it is in your natural teeth. You do not need to do anything extra.
Your healthy teeth are not eroding away: When bridge prosthetics are applied in the absence of teeth, your healthy teeth adjacent to your missing teeth need to be minimized. In the following periods, these teeth may become sensitized due to overload, gum problems can occur and even they can be lost. In implant applications, no healthy tooth is intervened.
Provide a more aesthetic appearance: It is almost impossible to distinguish a porcelain-built and properly placed dental implant from your natural teeth. In standard bridge or palate prosthesis applications, metal under the material or porcelain may appear visible and result in non-aesthetic appearance.
Give self-confidence: Because it raises the quality of life, it ensures that the patients have a life of peace, comfort and self-confidence.
Dental Implant Prices (Costs)
When a person who has been examined for missing teeth decides to make an dental implant and conducts a small research, he sees that the dental implant has changed prices clinically from clinic to clinic. The fact that dental implant prices differ from clinic to clinic makes it difficult for patients to decide, because no one can fully explain the question “why is the price difference caused?”
Dental implant treatment is a treatment that occurs when multiple branches of the dentist work together. Dental Implant therapy consists mainly of two phases, surgery and prosthesis. In the surgical section, the dental implant is placed in the jawbone, while in the prosthesis phase, the tooth is placed on the dental implant.
You may also be required to pay for dental implant dental fees for a specialist examination. Dental implants fall into the category of restoration and have their own dentistry implantology expertise. The dental implant surgeon is a periodontologist, oral surgeon or a dentist with advanced training in implantology. The necessity of specialist training may charge you a higher fee to perform the procedure.
Some doctors may want the patient to undergo general anesthesia during the procedure, that is, the patient is asleep during the entire procedure. This is more expensive and requires an anesthesiologist to be available for all surgery. Some doctors do not need it and will use the procedure using a local anesthetic; when they are working on the patient, they are numb, but they are awake and aware. Some patients may be very tense, so you may need to use a sedative to alleviate your anxiety before the procedure.
Bone grafting may be necessary in patients who have lost a large number of bone tissues. Bone grafts are performed a few months before placement of the implant in a separate procedure, and grafts should be expected for several months to get into the normal bone. This additional procedure will, of course, mean additional cost. This also means that the procedure can not be performed in a single pass, because the graft takes time to grow into the bone and it takes time for the tissues to heal.

What should be included in the price of implant treatment?
The implant you are buying consists of three parts: the implant itself, the artificial tooth, and the abutment (connecting the implant with the tooth). In most cases, the price indicates that the implant is only screwed to the bone in a clinic and is not included in abutment and artificial teeth. Be sure to ask for prices for all procedures and parts, including everything else (including surgery, anesthesia, anesthesia specialist and other surgeries)
Is the implant applied to everyone?
The implant cavity has some features that it should possess. At least 1 cm in width and thickness, a thick gum, at least 1 cm in bone length, a quality that can provide nutrition on the bone, etc … In a space without these criteria, additional applications may be needed to implant or sometimes it is not possible to implant.
For example, when the bone thickness is insufficient, graft (bone dust) can be used to form new bone, but when there is a defect in the length of the bone, it is necessary to take a bone in that region or another region as a mold and then screw it into the bone there.
When there is no anatomical difficulty, if the quality of the implant used is also taken care of, it is a low probability that the implant does not hold anymore in today’s developing technology.
With the implant application, a prosthesis is placed in the same tooth structure without having to touch the teeth adjacent to the tooth cavity. Implants hamper bone thinning and older appearance in their bones. They have the sensitivity to feel very close to the natural tooth.
When there is not enough space to place the implant, if there is already a need for veneer crown on the teeth on both sides of the empty tooth, or economic reasons, it may be preferable to make a bridge instead of an implant.
At the construction of the bridge, at least one tooth is cut from both sides of the gap and the tooth is inserted by receiving support from them. In order to be able to make a bridge, it is necessary to have at least 1 tooth on both sides of the gap in the teeth. Otherwise, one of the bridges will be missing and the bridge will not be possible.
