For Osteoporosis Patients
Implant Application

Osteoporosis  is the weakening of bone tissue over time, making it brittle. With osteoporosis, the risk of bone fracture may increase and quality of life may be adversely affected. It is important for patients to be attentive in their treatment processes and to choose appropriate plans. Implant application is used in many areas from dentistry to orthopaedics. However, there are some factors that should be considered for implant application in patients with osteoporosis.

Firstly, for the implant application to be successful, the patient’s bone condition must be evaluated in detail. In patients with advanced bone resorption or low density, the evaluation of alternative treatment options may help to achieve more effective results. Methods such as bone grafts may be preferred instead of implants.

Patients with osteoporosis can be implanted, but the general health status and bone structure of the patients should be examined in detail and a treatment plan should be implemented. These procedures are important to optimise the patient’s health and quality of life and to facilitate the healing process.

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis, also known as osteoporosis, is defined as the weakening of bones over time as a result of loss of density and quality. In this process, bones become more fragile and can easily break even when exposed to low-energy trauma. It usually occurs in old age and is more common in women.

Factors such as hormonal changes, insufficient calcium intake, vitamin D deficiency and sedentary lifestyle can be found in the development of osteoporosis. The progression of this disease can be controlled by early diagnosis and support with appropriate treatments. Calcium and vitamin D supplements, regular exercise, healthy diet and lifestyle changes can help maintain bone health.

What is Implant Application?

Implant application, which is frequently used in the field of medicine and dentistry, can be expressed as the process of placing an artificial biomedical device inside the body instead of a missing organ, tooth or tissue. These devices are produced from materials compatible with the patient’s physiology. Their compatibility with the body allows them to be used long-term or permanently.

Dental implants used in dentistry are used for visual and functional purposes to complete missing teeth. These implants, usually made of titanium alloy, are integrated into the jawbone. On the implant, dental prostheses are fixed and permanent effects that improve the patient’s smile and chewing function are obtained.

In Which Situations Is Implant Application Needed?

Implant application is needed in many different situations such as tooth loss, joint problems and bone loss with bone resorption. It is used to replace missing teeth in individuals with tooth loss. Teeth lost for various reasons can be permanently replaced with implants and aesthetic and functional results similar to natural teeth can be obtained.

Especially in patients with knee and hip joint problems, joint implants are used. Joint implants are surgically placed to restore mobility and reduce pain. Grafts or implants can be used in bone loss caused by bone loss, trauma, infection or bone resorption. In this way, bone tissue can be repaired and strengthened.

In cases of heart valve diseases or vascular occlusion, heart health can be restored by using implants such as artificial heart valves and stents. In patients with limb loss or limitation of mobility, quality of life can be improved by using prosthetic or orthotic implants. In these cases, implant application may be needed, but in which cases the treatment is appropriate is decided according to the individual condition and needs of the patient.

How Is Implant Application Performed?

Implant application can be performed using different methods depending on the procedures performed and the area where it will be applied. It is generally applied in two basic categories: dental implants and orthopaedic implants. For dental implants, the jawbone must first be examined in detail by X-ray and other imaging techniques.

Before the surgical procedure, local anaesthesia is applied and the jawbone is opened in the area where the implant will be placed. The implant is attached to the artificial root bone in the form of a titanium screw. After this process, the bone and implant merge over time. After the healing process is completed, a temporary protective coating or temporary prosthesis can be placed on it and the healing process is started. When the healing is complete, the denture is permanently placed.

What Are The Types Of Implants?

Implants are frequently used in different medical and dental fields. According to their usage areas, they are divided into two as dental implants and orthopaedic implants. Dental implants can be suitable for people with missing teeth. Screw-shaped artificial roots made of titanium are added to the jawbone to support the formation of an aesthetically and functionally favourable tooth structure.

Orthopaedic implants are used to restore mobility in bone or joint diseases or to repair damaged bones. Orthopaedic implants are combined with many products such as joint prostheses, bone plates, nails and screws. Different types and sizes of implants can be used according to the patient’s needs and treatment plan.

Who are Suitable Candidates for Implant Application?

For implant application, the bone and general health status of the patients should be evaluated and a treatment plan suitable for their needs should be prepared. In order to increase the success of the implant application, the bone structure and health history of the person are evaluated to determine whether it is suitable.

Suitable candidates for implant application can be:

  • Adults with missing teeth and complete jawbone development
  • Those with healthy gums and good oral hygiene
  • Those with sufficient jaw bone density
  • Chronic diseases under control and non-smokers
  • Those who need treatment for bone or joint diseases
  • People with favourable general health status and bone density
  • People who can adapt to the surgical procedure and recovery process

Can Individuals With Bone Resorption Disease
Have
Implant Procedure?

The intensity of bone resorption and the general health status of the patient with osteoporosis should be evaluated. The success of the procedure may be adversely affected by decreased bone density and weakening of the bones. Insufficient bone density may prevent the implants from integrating harmoniously with the bone and reduce the stability of the implant, but it is not an obstacle for the procedure.

For patients with osteoporosis, the implant application should be carefully evaluated and the treatment plan should be evaluated in detail. It is recommended to design the implant procedure according to the patient’s resorption level, general health status needs and to support the patient’s health in the best way by determining the most appropriate treatment plan.

What Should Bone Resorption Patients Who Have Implants
Pay Attention to After the Procedure?

Osteoporosis patients who have implants should pay attention to some important points after the procedure. After the implant procedure, time is required for the bones to heal completely. It is recommended to act in accordance with the healing process and rest as recommended by the doctor.

Dental implants require attention to oral hygiene for long-term use. Regular tooth brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups are important. A healthy diet is important for osteoporosis patients. Following a balanced and calcium-rich diet contributes to keeping the implants healthy.

Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can negatively affect both the osteoporosis disease process and the success of implants. Therefore, such habits should be avoided. Patients who have implants should be followed up by dentists for regular checks. Early diagnosis and treatment helps to prevent possible problems. Patients’ compliance with these points of attention can help them achieve a better quality of life by ensuring that the implants remain long-lasting and healthy.
