Dental implants are surgically placed on the roots of missing teeth, that is, on the jawbone. Since the specially surfaced titanium in the implants fuses with the jawbone, it provides the ideal root support for bridges or prostheses when applied correctly, does not cause problems in the long term and does not cause bone damage. At the same time, these implants do not rot.
Dental implants are generally suitable for you if:
• If you have at least 1 or more missing teeth,
• If you have a jawbone that has completed its growth,
• If your bones are sufficient to fix the implants or if bone grafting can be done,
• If you have a healthy mouth tissue,
• If you do not have diseases that may cause negative effects in terms of bone healing,
• If you cannot or do not want to wear dentures,
• If you want to improve your speaking.
A comprehensive examination is performed by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Specialist, Prosthetic Dentistry Specialist, Periodontology Specialist, and sometimes an ENT Specialist when necessary.
When the suitability and treatment plan is decided; An implantation process in a healthy bone is approximately 15 minutes. It is applied under local anesthesia and no pain is felt throughout the procedure. In most cases, the integration of the implant into the bone takes 3-4 months, and after this process, the appropriate dental prosthesis is made on the implant in about 5 days/3 sessions.
