It would not be wrong to say that implants are the best players in modern dentistry in dental treatments. They feel, see and function like natural teeth. In this way, you can regain the nutritional ability and smile you miss. Briefly, dental implants are titanium screws that support your new teeth by replacing your dental root.

With a small surgical procedure, we fix the implants to your jawbone in the area emptied due to the missing tooth. Then, during your healing process, your implant fuses with your jawbone and they are ready to function wonderfully. Our patients who will receive implant treatment are usually wondering 'If I have a gingival disease, can I get a dental implant?'. Let's try to clarify the issue by providing information about how gingival diseases can be processes.

Gingival Disease

You may think that you will lose some teeth with age and this is quite normal. Yes, tooth loss is a common result, but it is not inevitable. Taking care of your oral health by not interrupting your appointments with dentists may prevent gingival disease and tooth loss. However, in most cases, a gingival disease will not tell you 'I'm here' as it progresses. Symptoms and symptoms are always more obvious for our physicians. Gingival diseases can develop in situations where oral care is not taken care of, leading to gingivitis and hence periodontitis that causes bone loss around your teeth. In addition, gingival diseases can also occur due to genetic reasons.

If I have a gingival disease, can I get a dental implant?

In cases where implant treatments are required, our specialist physicians will subject you to an examination regarding your general oral health. Your gingival disease needs to be treated before dental implantation can take place. This is because your gingival disease can affect the volume of your jawbone and cause it to shrink and jeopardize the stability of the implant that will be placed by causing recession in your gums. It is also worth mentioning that bone density in your jaw may have already decreased due to a severe dental disease in the past. In this case, in our dental clinic, our physicians may perform your necessary controls and activate procedures that increase the amount of bone in the jaw for your treatment. Thus, the answer to your question "If I have a gingival disease, can I get a dental implant?" will be that you can get a dental implant after the necessary procedures are performed by our physicians.

What are the symptoms of gingival diseases?

Especially in every patient who uses heavy tobacco products, nicotine reduces blood flow in the area and prevents your gingival tissue from swelling. Therefore, it is very important that you do not miss your appointments and controls with us in terms of the detection of gingival diseases. Gingival bleeding, which is often a false belief that it is caused by very hard brushing in every case, may indicate a gingival disease. In addition, situations such as intense bad odor in the mouth, excessive sensitivity to heat and cold are also signs that you should see us dentists to decide whether you have gingival disease. In addition to redness, recession or swelling in your gums, a periodental abscess that you notice is also a symptom of gingival disease. In this case, do not worry about 'If I have a gingival disease, can I have a dental implant?'. Our specialist physicians at Pekel Oral and Dental Health Clinic will perform your necessary controls and apply the treatments of your existing gingival diseases before your dental empire treatments. In this way, when you receive treatment in our dental clinic in Antalya, you will feel comfortable that your general oral health is suitable for this procedure before starting the implant application.

What should I do to prevent gingival diseases?

First of all, you should pay attention to your general oral hygiene in order to prevent gingval diseases. It will be protective to brush your teeth effectively at least twice a day with toothbrushes suitable for your mouth and dental structure. You can also floss and mouthwash. Oral showers will also be very useful for effective oral and dental health cleaning. You can also visit us every 3 or 4 months for an examination and general oral cleaning. During dental cleaning procedures in a dental clinic, we make sure that your oral hygiene is fully ensured by reaching places where your toothbrush cannot reach. In addition, our physicians observe your gingival tissues by taking advantage of the latest technology during every examination in our dental clinic in Antalya.

A balanced and regular nutrition program is what we can advise you to prevent gingival diseases before excessive consumption of acidic beverages, reducing and quitting smoking.
