Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. There can be many reasons for your tooth loss. It may be due to a dental disease such as periodontitis, or you may have had an accident. Whatever the reason, a dental implant can be a perfect solution to restore your old smile.
When you lose a tooth, you also lose the root of the tooth. A dental implant replaces the heart. Thus, the specialist can insert a new artificial tooth. Therefore, an implant is an artificial tooth root screwed into the jaw where a tooth is missing or needs removal due to an evil heart.
Dental implants in Turkey consist of a titanium screw driven into the bone within the gingiva. The dentist can fit it with a crown, bridge, or complete denture. Thus, it looks and feels like a completely natural tooth. Titanium is harmless to the body and grows well in bone.
The most significant advantage of dental implants in Turkey is that they can be placed anywhere and don’t harm healthy neighboring teeth. In addition, dental implant costs in Turkey are very affordable, and the chance of success is very high.
Who is a Candidate for a Dental Implant?
Ideal candidates for dental implants in Turkey are anyone who has lost their teeth and wants to get new teeth. Most people can place an implant.
However, some essential factors affect whether this is the best solution or if there are better alternatives for you. That’s why we thoroughly examine whether it is the most appropriate treatment for your future dental health. We always x-ray the area to help set this.
If the bone quality isn’t what we want, we wait longer to evaluate whether we can achieve more healing or if bone formation is necessary.
Dental Implant Procedure
Take a closer look at the dental implant procedure steps in Turkey:
- Consultation and preparation
You will have a consultation with our specialist for dental implants in Turkey. The specialist first conducts a preliminary examination with x-rays. You will then talk to the dentist about the treatment. Our dentist has decided on a date for the operation where the dentist will place the implant. Before surgery, the specialist prescribes an antibiotic that you must take.
On the day of the operation, our dentist first applies effective and painless anesthesia. Our clinic prepares for surgery. For this reason, it is closed and sterile, so your surgical area is completely bacteria-free. It may all seem a little violent. However, it serves the purpose of significantly minimizing the risk of infection so that healing is as optimal as possible.
The operation begins with the dentist making a thin, small incision so that dentist can gently push the gums aside to expose the bone in the area where the implant will place. The specialist then makes room for your jawbone with different drills of the right length and varying diameter.
The dentist then screws the dental implants into the now jawbone. The smaller diameter of the pre-drill allows the implant to achieve the desired immediate stability (primary stability) for a tight fit and fixation in the bone.
When the implant correctly screws into the jawbone with a specific force, the implant collar aligns with the other bone. The specialist closes the implant by attaching a small cap screw to the internal thread of the implant. The specialist rinses and puts a few stitches at the surgical site to allow the mucosa on the implant to heal well.
The dentist will then give detailed instructions on how to behave after surgery and keep your oral cavity clean. After some time, the specialist loosens the gum shaper entirely painlessly. Finally, the dentist inserts the new crown or bridge.
Dental Implant Recovery
It is essential for your success after dental implants in Turkey. The specialist will give you painkillers and chlorhexidine, which you need to rinse six times a day for at least a week.
You rarely have pain after the specialist places the implants. You will feel it has spread to the region in the first days, but this passes. It is essential to maintain good oral hygiene, minimize the number of bacteria and provide optimal conditions for healing.
