What is a dental implant?
Implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed by a simple surgical operation on the jawbone in the absence of teeth. Prosthetic restorations can be performed by making various plannings on them. Implants are tissue-friendly materials made of titanium. They do not cause any allergic reaction. Their hardness is higher than teeth. They do not lead to cold or hot sensitivity in the jawbone region where they are placed.
Can everyone have an implant? Who are eligible candidates for implant therapy?
In order to be able to perform implant surgery, the jawbone should be suitable for this treatment. If not, jawbone correction operations should be carried out before implantation. Of course, the final decision will be made after your general health and oral hygiene conditions are evaluated by our doctors. You can consult your doctor for detailed information about implants.
How is an implant applied?
Referring to a single implant tooth procedure, an implant operation performed by a dentist trained in implant operations will be shorter and easier than a tooth extraction. The relevant region will be anesthetized and after the placement of implant and subsequent suturing depending on the state of operation, the operation ends.
How long is the treatment period for implant?
After the implant operation is performed by a specialist dentist, there will be a waiting period of 3 weeks to 3 months. During this time, the implant is expected to be completely union (osseointegration) with the jawbone. After the treatment period of implant is completed, a crown, a bridge, or a removable denture can be made on the implant depending on the planned treatment.
