Immediately after implant application (except immediate implants), unfortunately no permanent prosthesis is made. This is because it is necessary for a proper wearer to pass a certain wearer in order to fuse the implant with the jawbone. This time is at least 2 to 3 months for the lower sennale and at least 3 to 4 months for the upper sane. After the required time has elapsed, a prosthetic tooth is made on the implant and the tooth is inserted into the chewing function, so that the implant starts to load during chewing, at which point the implant should be fused with the jaw.
According to the bone quality, the implant can prolong its initial placement according to the strength of the bone holding (primary stabilization), depending on the complexity of the operation, whether the open sinus lifting surgery is performed or the surgeon’s operations are done at different times in several operations. Sometimes, a few operations are needed to ensure adequate aesthetics in the anterior region, and finally, it can take 1 year to finish the prosthesis.
One of the biggest expectations of patients before implant therapy is that they do not want to go toothless within about two to four months after implant surgery. In many cases, temporary prostheses can be made after the first weekly healing after the operation, sometimes even immediately after the operation. Patients with two to four months of waiting time can be relieved by these temporary prostheses in terms of function and appearance as required. However, in the case of the use of temporary prosthesis, the diet program specified by the physician should be taken very seriously. Foods should not be consumed in hard and medium hardness within the specified periods. Otherwise the risk of non-fusion of the implants to the bone will be increased.
Implants produced by some implant companies have been reported to be made directly after implantation, and direct loading applications have been initiated by our dental colleagues since 2003. However, long-term studies have shown that the healthiest method for implant application is to have enough water for bone and artificial tooth bonding and to passively hold the implant in the mouth during this time.
