Implant Supported Dentures
Your physician will explain implant-supported and/or connected prosthesis options. However, when you want implant-supported prostheses (fixed and/or mobile) to be performed instead of your missing teeth and/or teeth, the placement plan of the implants in the mouth and all kinds of planning related to the prostheses should be done by your physician. Even if surgical placement of the implants is performed, pre-planned prosthetic treatment may not be performed or may be changed. Success in implant-assisted prosthetic treatment cannot be guaranteed. The financial costs of the placement of the implants, the construction of the prosthetic superstructure and the additional treatments required/may be required during the follow-up period are covered by the patient. In addition to the problems that can be encountered with the use of fixed and/or movable prostheses and explained to you in the above sections; there is a risk of encountering difficulties such as failure of prostheses and/or their substances, allergies to metals, loss of permanent teeth, gum disease, inability to maintain oral care and health, problems such as loss of prostheses and/or implants due to oral findings of other oral diseases or systemic diseases, and the ability to provide aesthetic and jaw relations to the extent permitted by the conditions. Depending on any risk, implants may need to be surgically removed and replaced by other prosthetic treatment methods. Implant surgery and/or prostheses alone may not be the exact solution. Corrective surgical procedures such as bone grafting and/or guided tissue regeneration may be required. Tobacco and alcohol use affects implants and/or prostheses and limits the success of this treatment. Personal oral care and oral health protection are required. Regular (at least twice a year for three years at the end of the first week, first month, third month, sixth month and first year and once a year in the following years) check-in appointments are required. After implant-supported prosthetic treatment is performed and the prosthesis is delivered to the patient, complications such as bone loss, gingival problems, loosening or fracture of the implant screw, implant breakage, fractures and deterioration in the prosthetic superstructure may occur around the implant and may need to be repaired, replaced and renewed. In these cases, the associated additional costs are borne by the patient.
