There are many questions that patients seek answers to about implants, which is one of the preferred methods in dental health problems. Işık Dental Clinics Founder and Chief Physician Dt. Deniz Işık Ada answers in detail.
Many foods we consume during the day cause various discomforts, no matter how much we care for our teeth. Implant treatment is one of the most preferred solutions, especially for major problems such as bone resorption and tooth loss. Patients who want to have implant treatment first ask questions such as "which implant should I choose" or "which implant brand is the best". Işık Dental Clinics Founder and Chief Physician Dt. Deniz Işık clarifies the subject with these words: “When it comes to implants, it would not be correct to say 'that brand is the best'. Implant manufacturers undertake different studies according to the operations to be performed and the types of treatment. You can trust all brands with successful literature reviews and R&D studies.”
“We should look at the history of the manufacturer, not the origin”
According to the Dental Implant Industry Report of the Dental Implant Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association, dental materials, which are among the most important sectors of our country, turned into a 2020 million dollar market in 504. It was stated that dental implants, which are the locomotive products of the market, grow with an average volume of 150 million dollars every year. Dt. Deniz Işık Ada stated that there are over 150 manufacturers in the market and that the history of the manufacturers should be looked at, not their origin, and continued as follows: “While researching implant brands, it would be wrong to choose according to the place of manufacture, it is necessary to look at the history of the manufacturer. Therefore, it is not correct to say that every implant produced is of good quality, nor to think that it is bad if the implant is domestically produced. The quality of the implant is determined by factors such as design, suprastructure diversity, long-term clinical follow-up, and independent scientific studies conducted and published about the system.”
“Implant is a lifetime treatment method with stable oral hygiene”
Işık, who stated that the implant was applied in a short time after it was started in a planned and ready manner, conveyed the details of the treatment process with the following words: “After the necessary hygienic conditions are provided before the implant operation, the area is anesthetized by local anesthesia. In this way, the patient does not feel pain and pain during the operation. Although the implant can be used for a lifetime thanks to stable oral care and hygiene, dentures can wear out. For this reason, for prostheses that need to be replaced between 5 and 10 years, patients should come for a check-up every 3 months and then every 6 months and take precautions.”
“The most important issue is the trust in the physician”
Stating that it may not always be easy or possible for patients to access the aforementioned information, Dt. Deniz Işık Ada drew attention to the selection of the right physician and clinic. "You should trust your doctor first," said Dt. Deniz Işık Ada said, “The most important issue that a patient should consider while having an implant is whether he/she trusts the physician. Because the main responsibility in this treatment is not the company that produces the implant, but the physician who applies it. An experienced physician always chooses the most suitable implant for the case, minimizing the risks. As Işık Dental Clinics, we use the world's best implant brands in our practices and ensure that our patients have a more aesthetic smile and more permanent treatments.”
