Implant treatment is the process of placing the tooth that dentists produce specifically for your oral structure with the right techniques in the area. The material used in the implant is titanium screws. These deep screws are inserted into the root of the tooth being pulled using a number of techniques. An improvement is observed in a short time if the patient also follows the instructions and recommendations given by the doctor. At this point, among the questions that patients often ask is how long after the can implant treatment take place. Fortunately, thanks to new treatment methods, patients can now be treated without waiting for improvement for 3-6 months. There is no harm in applying implant treatment immediately after tooth extraction in patients with a healthy jaw structure and bone tissue.
In patients with a healthy jaw structure and bone tissue, there is no harm in applying implant treatment immediately after the shot. Even from the point of view of the doctor and the patient, it is an easier procedure to apply the treatment after the tooth extraction. Because when the tooth is separated from the root, the tooth root that remains empty begins to lose bone tissue. Especially in the first 24 hours, the lost tissue is replaced by a larger amount of space than before. This situation leads to the possibility of problems with the aesthetic appearance of the implant-treated tooth in the future.
If there are no lesions, cysts, or other pathologies in the place of the patient’s removed tooth, or if the person is not undergoing treatments such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy, implant treatment can be applied immediately. If there are such problems with the jaw, or if a treatment is being taken that targets the entire body’s immunity, the implant cannot be placed directly on the jaw.
The implant application performed immediately after tooth extraction is also ideal for the patient’s comfort. In this treatment, not only the placement of the artificial tooth in the screw structure in the jaw is important, but also the aesthetic position of the tooth in the jaw after the treatment. Therefore, the patient needs to know that this treatment is not a small operation, but a process. It is very important that the doctor takes into account that the lost bone tissue will accept the implant in order for it to undergo the healing process by following the doctor’s recommendations.
Getting an implant years later after tooth extraction
It may be necessary to wait a period of time between one minute and 6 months between decanting the tooth and making the implant! If the tooth root is without problems, it is possible to pull out the tooth and make an implant application. But the tooth extraction process is mostly done for reasons such as tooth infection. In this case, it is also necessary to pull out the tooth and wait for the infection to disappear in the corresponding area.
Sometimes, 2 to 4 months can be expected to achieve bone health and volume after tooth extraction. Another post-shooting waiting condition is the sinus lifting process. If the implant cannot be applied when the sinus base upgrade process is performed to gain height in the sinus regions of the upper jaw, the time required to wait for the implant to be made in this area is 6 months.
What Happens If you Don’t Get an Implant After Tooth Extraction
What happens if you don’t get an implant after tooth extraction, this is dangerous. When a tooth is missing for as little as one year (including extractions), the bone begins to atrophy, meaning the density and height of the bone decreases and deteriorates almost immediately. You’ll just about certainly need a graft in furthermore to a single dental implant after a year. While the bone grafting procedure is not entirely unpleasant, it is still more painful and costly than a simple dental crown.
The positioning of your teeth is another unwelcome consequence of delaying (or simply not getting) dental implants. Your teeth collaborate, shifting in response to changes in the mouth, such as missing teeth. For example, your back molars may tip forward into an implant space if you wait much longer to get a dental implant; if you wait too long, there may not be enough room for the new tooth. In addition, if you do not have a partner for the opposing tooth, it can erupt off your arch but also cause bite problems. Your neighbouring teeth start shifting it’s a slow process that begins right after you lose a tooth. TMJ (temporomandibular joint pain or TMD) is a type of chronic jaw pain caused by eruption problems.
Both scenarios may necessitate orthodontic treatment, such as braces, clear aligners, or maybe a temporary anchorage device, to straighten the tooth and make room for the implant. Again, this is a process which also longer, more unpleasant, and much more costly than plainly opting for immediate implant placement surgery.
