In the case of a sore tooth, you can first try home remedies, such as applying cold to the sore area of the tooth or using a soothing mouthwash around the tooth. However, if the pain persists, you should contact your dentist and make an appointment. Your dentist can determine the cause of the pain and recommend the appropriate treatment.
The completion time of the teeth whitening process may vary depending on the method used and how much you want to whiten your teeth. Some whitening methods can be completed in one session, while others may require several sessions. Permanence depends on the whitening method and the person’s oral hygiene. Generally, teeth whitening lasts for a year or more.
An implant is a type of artificial tooth root that replaces lost teeth. It is usually in the form of a screw made of titanium and is inserted into the jawbone and fixed in the mouth in a similar way to other teeth. Implants are used to create a new tooth to replace a lost tooth, as well as to prevent oral and dental health problems caused by missing teeth. Implants can also be used to fix removable dentures. Implants require a surgical procedure, and the healing process after implant placement is also important. During this process, the implant fuses to the jawbone, and this process can often take several months. Although the success rate of implants is quite high, in some cases, there may be problems such as the implant not fusing with the jawbone sufficiently or infection may develop.
Implants usually consist of three main components:
Implant treatment usually takes 3-6 months, including the placement of the implant and the healing process for the implant to fuse with the bone. The success rate is usually high and can range from 90% to 95%. However, it is advisable to discuss with your dentist to determine if you are a suitable candidate for implant treatment and what your success rate might be.
Bone grafts are used in implant treatment when there is insufficient bone tissue for the procedure. This can be the case for patients who do not have a suitable bone structure. Bone grafts can be taken from the patient’s own jawbone or hip bone, or synthetic bone grafts or bone grafts of animal origin can be used. The graft material is placed in the area of bone loss and helps the bone to grow back, allowing the implant procedure to be performed after the bone graft has been placed. The healing process usually takes 4-6 months for the bone graft to grow.
General anesthesia is a risky procedure that is usually not necessary for oral surgery, although it may be an option for patients who have a fear of needles. Before administering general anesthesia, an assessment should be made by the dentist, anesthesiologist, and the patient’s overall health condition. There are alternative options available for patients who are afraid of needles, such as local anesthesia or sedation. Local anesthesia numbs the area where it is administered to reduce pain, while sedation medication is used to help the patient relax.
