Dental Implant

Dental implants can provide a strong foundation for teeth replacement that look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants essentially act like your natural tooth. They provide comfort, confidence in function and in appearance. You are considered as a good candidate if you are looking for a dental treatment to correct missing teeth.

Dental Implants are artificial dental follicles made of titanium or titanium compounds that are usually placed inside the jawbone to replace missing teeth in the mouth. In Implant application, which is an easy and painless procedure today, the area is numbed with local anesthesia first; a socket is prepared in the bone where the implant is placed, then the implant is placed and the recovery period begins. Applying a single implant is no longer then 10 minutes. In some cases, it is possible to place the implant without any incisions or stitches using the no-suture implant method. Moreover, while the dental prosthesis is placed on these screws, the surrounding teeth are never damaged. Implants become a part of the body as a result of the biological attachment formed between this material, which is bio-compatible with human tissue and the jawbone. The implant acts as a root of the tooth and you can easily eat, talk and laugh as if it was a natural tooth.

In order for dental implants to remain healthy against chewing pressures, they must fully unite with the jawbone. This period varies depending on the type of operation, region, age and health status of the patient. After the operation, a period of 6 to 8 weeks is required for the application of permanent prostheses. In bone deficiency, the waiting time can be prolonged in the areas where new bone is ensured to be formed.

Dental implants can be applied to all individuals over the age of 18 who have completed jaw and facial development.  However, implants can also be applied by making necessary medical consultations and medication revisions in cases such as diabetes affecting the recovery, some systemic diseases, excessive smoking, use of some drugs affecting the bone. The implant screw itself can last a lifetime, assuming the patient receives regular dental check-ups every 6 months.
