DENTAL IMPLANTS

What are Dental Implants?


Dental implants are artificial tooth roots and are the best alternatives to tooth roots. A dental implant is a screw system made of titanium that is placed in the jawbone which is used for prosthesis on the teeth to restore function and aesthetics of missing teeth.

Who should consider getting Dental Implants?

Implants provide better chewing function, speech and aesthetic appearance than traditional dentures.

Dental implant is a comfortable, reliable and effective method. Dental implants help patients who have missing teeth eat and drink comfortably, while looking aesthetically pleasing.

How are Dental Implants implanted?


Under local anesthesia, implantation takes 30 minutes without any pain or discomfort. The jawbone in the region where the titanium screw is to be placed must be at a certain height and width. In cases when the jawbone is inadequate, the bone level is increased performing bone apposition. The quality of the jawbone in which the implant is placed is the most important factor for the success of the procedure. Smaller mini dental implants are used to increase the retention of the dentures.


Dental implant treatment goes on for 2-6 months on average. The implants fuse with bone in the lower cannon in 2 months and the upper cannon in 3 months. If bone apposition is applied, fusion occurs in 6 months.


What kind of materials are being used?


Titanium is used in Dental Implants. Titanium, which is highly compatible with human body, is a non-toxic, non-allergic metal. Over time, the implant will fuse with the jawbone.
