A dental implant can be defined as an ”artificial tooth root that is placed in or on top of the jaw to replace a missing tooth or to complete the parts that have been lost in the mouth". Although tooth loss is usually considered as an aesthetic problem, in the long run this condition brings with it different health problems. With this awareness, it is important that the necessary treatment is carried out without delay. It is possible to eliminate this risk permanently with dental implant treatment, where the result is closest to natural teeth.
Anyone with a lack of teeth and a good general health condition can have a dental implant.
If you have tooth loss, over time, this area of your jawbone begins to shrink. Unhealthy bone loss causes your facial structure to change. Dental implants prevent bone resorption by protecting the bone around it, thus maintaining the natural shape of your face. It is a better and long-term treatment alternative compared to traditional crown-bridge applications placed on natural teeth. Thanks to dental implants, your tooth deficiency is permanently eliminated without cutting healthy teeth next to the toothless cavity. Implants are extremely durable. One hundred percent is a part of you. It is used as a holder in mobile prostheses that have adjustment problems, move while eating, talking. In this way, your prosthesis will not slip and will not move.
A careful evaluation of your dental and medical health history is performed. If you are a suitable candidate for implant treatment, treatment planning is made with your panoramic film, which we will take before the treatment.
With local anesthesia, implants are placed in your jawbone. You will not feel any pain at this time. The process is extremely simple and short.
implants fuse with the jawbone (osteointegration) in a time Decrement ranging from 2-6 months. Temporary prostheses can be made during this time. When the osteointegration is completed, the part that will support the prosthesis (abutment) is placed in the implant body. A measurement is taken and immediately after that, the prosthesis stage is started, which is planned for permanent restoration.
