Timing Of Application In Dental And Determination Of Waiting Time



In recent years, implant applications are one of the biggest developments in dentistry practice. This method is a method used to complete missing teeth and its popularity is increasing exponentially every year. Implant helps to complete all kinds of missing teeth in dentistry. In this way, patients can solve their tooth loss aesthetically and functionally. Today, dental implants are accepted as a leading treatment method in the field of dentistry with their long-lasting and successful results.

Factors such as better aesthetics, better functional results, natural tooth feeling and quality of life, and social and psychological relaxation have increased the widespread use of implants. These positive effects have led to the preference for implant treatment by patients. The success of the implant depends on the appropriate selection of the patient, the evaluation of the drugs he regularly uses and the level of his systemic diseases, and the correct evaluation of medical information such as osteoporosis, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy.

If the patient has insufficient bone in the jaw, has a systemic disease, and uses medication, implant treatment may fail. Therefore, the success of implant treatment depends on factors such as the adequacy of the patient’s jaw structure, detection of systemic diseases, and evaluation of drug use. For this reason, it is important to evaluate the patient in detail and to plan appropriate treatment before implant treatment.

In dental implant applications, it may be necessary to wait a certain period for the implant to be compatible with the bone. Porcelains can be installed after 2.5-3 months, depending on the surface properties, but this period may extend up to 6 months if the bone is added. In some cases, porcelain can be placed within 48 hours-1 week following implant placement. This period depends on the general health status of the patient, bone structure, and implant characteristics. Implant selection is also important. The properties of the surface in contact with the bone and the quality of the implant should be carefully evaluated. The success of the application can be increased if it is applied by a physician with good surgical experience without damaging the bone and surrounding soft tissue. In addition, factors such as compliance with asepsis-antisepsis rules, appropriate antibiotic use for the patient, and oral hygiene education are also important in infection control.

The safest method in terms of the permanence of the dental implant; is to wait 2.5-3 months in terms of implant and bone compatibility. However, in some cases, the implant-porcelain placement process can be completed with only 5-7 days of separation by the patients. After this procedure, patients should also pay great attention to their oral health. In summary, factors such as the patient’s general health status, bone structure, implant selection, surgical experience, infection control, and oral hygiene are of great importance in the timing/waiting period of dental implant applications.
