"DENTAL IMPLANT" is defined as the replacement of teeth lost due to decay or any external trauma, with a tooth root made of titanium material by fixing to the jawbone.

Titanium is a material that can easily adapt to tissues and is known to be bone-friendly. Therefore, titanium material has become a very important discovery today in the treatment of missing teeth through dental implants.

Dental implantation is the best known and modern dental treatment modality in the treatment of tooth deficiencies. The materials developed with the renewed medical knowledge and technology today offer an easier, painless and fast dental implant treatment. With these new materials, dental implants can be fixed to the jawbone faster and thus dental prostheses can be placed on the dental implant in a shorter time.

Dental implants will be the most used treatment modality for dental prostheses in today's dentistry. Dental implants will be indispensable because they are the most suitable alternative to natural teeth and provide a better speaking ability, a better chewing function and a very serious increase in comfort compared to removable dental prostheses.

What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots prepared from special materials in accordance with oral and dental anatomy to replace missing teeth in the mouth. Dental implants are fixed to the jawbone with a simple dental operation.
What is the life span of a dental implant?
Today, considering the technological level of the production of dental implants, their lifespan is much longer than those produced with previous technologies. There are implants that have been followed without any problems for 20 to 30 years and are the subject of clinical research. If factors such as manufacturing time, bone and jaw structure, and potential non-implant-related dental problems are excluded, implants can have a lifetime of permanence. Good oral and dental care is another important factor affecting the life of the implant. If the necessary dental care is not interrupted, your implants will remain with you for years.
In which patients can dental implant be applied?
Dental implants can be applied to every patient with good general health. Since the bone development is not yet completed in young individuals, dental implants can be postponed to later years. There is no upper limit for age. The structure of the jawbone is the most important factor affecting the success of dental implantation. The thickness and strength of the jawbone are very important during the placement of the implant. Dental implantation is not recommended for those with bone disease. Individuals with various conditions such as diabetes, cortisone use, susceptibility to infection and metal allergy should inform their physician. Moreover, these patients should be consulted with the relevant departments. Our dentists consult such patients with their physicians.
What is osseointegration?
Dental implants must be in full harmony with the jawbone in order to maintain their health against the pressure caused by chewing. In dentistry, osseointegration is defined as a direct anchorage of an implant by the formation of bony tissue. Dental implants will be subject to intense pressure similar to the original teeth due to chewing in the following periods. This period varies between 3 and 6 months, depending on the age, the region of the operation and the type of implant. After the osseointegration is completed, the dental implant will be covered with a dental prosthesis specially manufactured for the patient.
How is a dental implant placed?
Dental implantation is performed using an appropriate anesthetic technique. Patients do not feel any pain during the placement of the implant. Some of our patients may experience a slight pain that can be relieved with simple painkillers, albeit at a low frequency, after the effect of anesthesia has completely disappeared. Dental implants are placed painlessly using an appropriate anesthetic technique. The pain experienced on the day of dental implantation, which is the same as experienced after tooth extraction, can be prevented with simple painkillers.
Does dental implant require special care?
Dental hygiene is an integral part of dental treatment. Therefore, it does not require any application other than routine dental care practices. Your dentist will inform you about all dental cleaning and care practices.
How are dental prostheses applied on dental implants?
Generally, dental implants and prostheses are confused with each other or considered as a whole structure. A dental implant can be defined as a screw, usually made of titanium, used to fix the prosthesis to the jawbone. Prosthesis is the name given to the white part seen from the outside. There is no need to use an implant for every tooth. The placement of prostheses, which can be supported with bridges and other teeth, can be planned based on oral and dental structures. Prosthetic teeth are fixed on implants. The dentist will determine the most appropriate method according to detailed examinations.
What are the most important advantages of dental implants?
  • It is possible to obtain a much more aesthetic dental appearance.
  • The necessity to use a removable dental prosthesis is eliminated.
  • Teeth have stronger and better chewing function.
  • When deemed necessary, they can easily be replaced with new prostheses.
  • They can be applied even for a single tooth. Patients regain their self-confidence with implants.
