IMPLANT – DENTAL IMPLANTS
What is implant treatment?
Implant treatment is the placement of artificial teeth in the jawbone to replace one or more lost teeth. They are made of titanium, which has been used for many years and are fully compatible with the body (biocompatible) and respectful of tissues. Titanium connects very well to the bone and has excellent durability. After the dental implant has been placed, it will fuse with the jaw bone, making it a part of the body that can be used for life.
How is dental implant treatment performed and what is the treatment process?
Implant treatment is carried out, similarly to other treatments (filling, root canal treatment, tooth extraction), under local anesthesia. Depending on the patient’s preferences, it can also be performed under sedation. There is no pain during the treatment. Nowadays, dental implant treatment is a very simple and painless application.
It takes up to 3 months before the placed implant fuses with the bone. This duration may vary according to the age and state of health of the patient. Patients with inadequate bone structure or patients undergoing sinus lift or to whom bone powder has been applied may have to wait up to 6 months after implantation. After this time, measurements are taken and an implant-supported prosthesis is made. If implant dental care is done correctly, it can be used for life.
The biggest advantage of implant treatment is that missing teeth are replaced without interfering with the adjacent teeth. When a dental bridge is applied, the adjacent teeth must be cut. Implant treatment does not damage adjacent teeth.

Questions and answers
Is dental implant treatment difficult?
Dental implant treatment under local anaesthesia is a painless and easy procedure. The use of the drug prescribed after the operation and good oral hygiene will help complete the healing process in a simple way.
Will my face swell after implant treatment? Will I have pain?
A slight swelling of the cheek and a change in color can occur within the first 24 hours, but with the application of cold packs this can be easily overcome. Your specialised maxillofacial surgeon will explain the rules to be observed after the implant treatment. The suggested pain relievers will control any pain that may occur on the first day. It is not recommended to smoke during the first two days.
What are the advantages of implant treatment over dental bridge treatment?
For bridges that are used to correct one or more lost teeth it is necessary to cut or reduce the size of the teeth, which are located in front and behind the gap. But in implant treatment it is not necessary to interfere with the adjacent teeth as only one implant is placed where the missing tooth is, so the adjacent teeth are not damaged.
What is the best implant brand?
In case of tooth loss, you can benefit from an implant treatment. The implant plays the role of the root of the tooth and meets the aesthetic and functional needs like a natural tooth. The characteristics of the surface, the technology and the design of the system are very important. A properly planned and applied implant by a specialized maxillofacial surgeon with good technique and good dental hygiene and regular checkups after treatment will make it last a lifetime.
The maxillofacial surgeons of our clinic have been using the most prestigious implant brands for many years with the highest and world brand recognition. Implant treatments have a lifetime guarantee.
How long does the implant treatment process take? When will my teeth be completed?
The duration of the implant treatment varies depending on the person but lasts about 3 months. During these 3 months we wait for the implant to fuse with the bone, which is then covered with porcelain. In patients with inadequate bone thickness and quantity, additional procedures may be necessary such as bone powder grafting or sinus lift, which extend this duration up to 6 months.
