The basic stages of zygomatic implant treatment begin with placing the implant to cheekbones. As Denta FLY, we have combined nearly twenty years of experience with the leading brands around the globe and have moved them to an axis that emerges experience and quality products. As DentaFly, we are using digital dentistry for zygoma type implants.
1. General Check-Up: When a specialist makes a diagnosis for implant treatment, they ask some questions about general health and dental treatment. After these questions are answered, the case is evaluated from various perspectives. The treatment process begins upon detecting no objection to implant treatment.
a. X-Ray: In a dental treatment, X-ray images give an overview of the patient’s teeth. However, following the latest contributions of technology to digital dentistry, DentaFLY takes examination one step further.
With 3D imaging systems, we record 3D images of the tooth and jaw structure. After obtaining this image, the tooth and jaw structure is fully examined by the specialist dentist. To bring the image of the teeth to perfection in terms of naturalness and health, the specialist dentist takes special solution steps.
b. Additional Treatments: Implant treatment may not always follow a clear process like eliminating a single tooth deficiency. In some cases, different treatments need to be applied to nearby teeth.
Also, if more than one implant is made, the patient may want to have a more natural smile. In this case, a treatment plan is prepared for the application of additional treatments, like smile aesthetics, if needed. If a filling or root canal treatment is to be applied to other teeth, these procedures are done before the implant.
There are also cases where implant treatment is diagnosed but not applied for a long time. Such cases may involve disorders in various organs like the stomach, heart, or liver. Therefore, implant treatment is the primary treatment method in dentistry.
So, when performing this phase, we guide our patients according to their own health conditions. Most patients want to have procedures like root canal, teeth whitening, and smile aesthetics completed at once, for understandable reasons. However, in such cases, the specialist dentist needs to decide which treatment should be the priority.
In implant treatment, the implant brand is decided together with the opinions of the patient and the dentist. The chosen brand does not change the stages of implant treatment. At this stage, some decision mechanisms like compatibility with bone and the healing process are taken into consideration when choosing an implant.
2. Implant Treatment Process: After local anesthesia, the dental implant is placed in about 15 minutes. When the implant becomes compatible with the bone and the healing process is completed, an infrastructure is formed for tooth placement. The implant can be thought of as a tooth root.
a. Implant Placement: At DentaFLY, our expert surgeon places the implants of our patients. This process takes about 15 minutes. Then, our personnel make some suggestions to the patient for the implant to be healthy.
The implant is checked by our specialist dentists at various intervals from 2 to 3 months. During this process, stitches are removed and other check-ups are performed. When the tooth roots become completely healthy, tooth placement and crown processes are started.
b. Crowns in Implant Treatment: Implant treatment may not always be a clear process of eliminating a single tooth deficiency. In some cases, different treatments need to be applied to nearby teeth.
When the implant becomes completely healthy, zirconium crowning is performed. Then, various procedures are performed to restore the natural appearance of the teeth. As DentaFLY, we provide a healthy appearance in a very short time with crowns produced in our own institution.
The crowns are produced after measuring the teeth. Each crown is produced in measurements suitable for the patient’s teeth and mouth structure. As DentaFLY, we produce dental crowns specific to each patient in our own laboratory.
Zirconium determines how the teeth look. So, it is crucial that the zirconium crown be made in a suitable size for the tooth. Also, in zirconium crowns, using colors compatible with other teeth is a key element that makes the teeth look good in terms of smile aesthetics.
