DENTAL IMPLANTS

The cavities left from the lost teeth in the jaw bone cause the patient to look old. Apart from aesthetic problems, patients who have lost one or more teeth may experience serious health problems, due to failure of chewing function. In social life, it is not easy for the patient to feel happy with the elderly appearance caused by cavities in the jaw. Artificial roots, called implants have been designed to eliminate the problems caused by lost teeth. The implant is made of titanium, due to its easy adaptability to bone tissue, its being strong, lightweight and resistant to abrasion. These titanium screws are surgically inserted into the jawbone, thus creating strong artificial tooth roots for the artificial teeth to be placed thereon. The part of the implant treatment up to this stage is the one that includes one or a series of surgical operations. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, therefore no pain is felt. In the following process, the implant is expected to adapt to the body, which takes about 8 to 12 weeks. After the jawbone and the implant match, the artificial tooth is placed on the artificial tooth root. At this stage, implant treatment meets aesthetic dental treatment. Artificial teeth called crowns are designed to be placed on the implant by considering the tooth structure and wishes of the patient. After a couple of rehearsals, the patient regains his new teeth with a rejuvenating look. The high quality implants which we prefer make it difficult to distinguish the natural teeth from the teeth placed on the jaw.
