What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in the jawbone and made from a suitable material to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth. It is a much safer and more functional treatment compared to traditional coating, bridge and palate dentures.

Although the concept of a dental implant is a foreign word nowadays, it has grown into a widespread, well-known and often mentioned term in public. The increasing popularity of the term “implant”, it has entered dentistry as a scientific concept in the past 20 years. When examining the meaning of the word from dental implants, Dental is the word that refers to the tooth and the word implant that can be placed in the tissue.
Dental implant; These are prosthetic structures made of titanium, which are placed inside or in the jawbone, offer support and support from a substructure called an implant, in order to eliminate tooth deficiency and to complete the parts lost in the mouth area.
A simplified implant; By placing an artificial tooth in the jawbone, it should function like a natural tooth. Thanks to these implants, people can get new artificial teeth that, instead of their natural teeth, which they have lost over time, can offer the same comfort and regain their comfort in life.

How are dental implants used?

Treatment is completed by making a crown (porcelain or zirconium) after combining dental implants with a small titanium screw and an abutment that are fully compatible with the human body. The titanium screw mentioned above is an artificial tooth root that is highly compatible with the jawbone and was developed to perform the task of the natural tooth root. The implant treatment can easily be applied to one or more tooth losses. The patient treated with the implant can return to everyday life on the same day.

Implant treatment is initiated by performing local anesthesia in a clinical setting. For patients who are afraid of surgery, the implantation procedure is performed using sedation and local anesthesia.
After the anesthesia procedure, the gums are opened by surgery and the jawbone is thus exposed. A small diameter pilot hole is first drilled in the resulting jawbone. The guide hole is then slowly expanded to fit the shape in which the implant is placed. Thanks to the careful and slow expansion of the hole in the jawbone, the traumatic effect on the bone is also reduced. The implant is then placed by screwing it into the gap opened in the jawbone.
After inserting the implant screw, a protective cap screw is placed on the implant to enable osseointegration in the area (ossification of the implant) and to wait for the implant site to heal. The opened gums are sewn shut and the waiting period for a few months is started.
A few months later, the protective screw is removed and a temporary crown is placed on the dental implant. The provisional crown serves as a template in which the gums can form and grow naturally. After the formation of the gums, the treatment is completed by replacing the temporary crown with the permanent crown (porcelain or zirconium teeth).
After the treatment is complete, your recovery will accelerate with the advice of your dentist and the use of medication.
