Is there any season for implant application? What are the advantages of implant application in summer? In this article, we will talk about one of the factors that accelerate implant healing….
The exact place, the exact time for dental implant application! Can dental implantation have a season?
In today’s world, dental implants are now the preferred option for repairing tooth deficiencies.
Implants applied by expert hands in hygienic conditions can provide aesthetic comfort and healthy chewing, completing smile aesthetics.
Bone healing is crucial after implantation. In this stage, your body’s healing rate is as important as the medications your doctor recommends.
Bone healing is influenced by various vitamins and minerals such as D vitamin, calcium, and phosphorus. However, among these, D vitamin holds critical importance. D vitamin can be obtained from dairy products such as milk, yogurt, cheese, kefir, egg yolks, cereal products, and fish oil. However, the D vitamin obtained through these foods only constitutes about 20% of our needs.
The best source for meeting the body’s D vitamin requirement is sunlight. Our skin absorbs sunlight and synthesizes D vitamin. D vitamin strengthens tooth and bone structure by enhancing the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, accelerating bone healing.
D vitamin facilitates the absorption of calcium into the bones. If calcium is not absorbed and transferred to the bone through this process, a series of reactions occur that can result in the softening of the bone structure.
For patients undergoing dental implantation with bone strengthening using bone powders, especially those who actively intake calcium and D vitamin, the healing process will be accelerated.
In our country, it is possible to obtain vitamin D from sunlight from March to October. During this period, effective conversion of vitamin D can be achieved with 10-15 minutes of sun exposure without using any protective measures.
Therefore, in our sun-rich geography, especially during the summer months, the integration between bone and implant after implantation may occur more rapidly. However, it would be beneficial to consult with your doctor regarding how soon you can expose yourself to sunlight after the procedure.
Wishing you healthy days and happy smiles!!!
