Implant; It is a screw-shaped artificial tooth root made of titanium, which is placed in the jawbone to replace missing teeth.
Especially today, when aesthetic concerns and wishes are very prominent, missing teeth affect the person extremely negatively in social life. Implants provide aesthetic comfort in addition to the correction of chewing and other functions in the mouth.
The success rate of implants is extremely high due to excellent tissue compatibility.
One of the biggest advantages of implant treatment is that the treatment is applied only to the gap area by not touching the neighboring teeth and not cutting the teeth as in bridge prostheses.
Implant treatment can be applied to individuals over the age of 18 who have completed their jaw and facial development.
Before the treatment, x-rays are taken to determine whether the jaw structure and the amount of bone are suitable for the implant.
The implant is applied under local anesthesia. The time and comfort the person spends in the dental chair is no different from a simple filling procedure.
The treatment is painless and in a very short time and the daily functions of the person are not adversely affected.
Following tooth extraction, implants can be applied in the same session and temporary dentures can be placed in the same session.
In cases where there is not enough bone, the appropriate bone volume is created with bone powder and grafts before the implant and the implants are placed.
Following the placement of the implants, a certain period is waited for the implants to fuse with the bone (osteointegration), and permanent prostheses are made.
