Dental Implants

Implant treatment is one of the most frequently preferred methods of patients who have lost their teeth for any reason. The loss of the tooth causes an unwanted cavity in the mouth. In the treatment, it is aimed to remove this gap by using titanium materials. Titanium is a substance that does not harm the human body. For this reason, the tooth root is created by placing titanium screws in the gap where the loss is experienced. Thanks to the dental prosthesis applied on the root, the biggest advantage of the implant is that it looks like the patient's own tooth and provides an extremely successful and natural use advantage. Although implant treatment is performed in dental clinics in many cities of our country, İzmir is one of the leading cities in implant treatment.

Titanium compounds used in the treatment do not cause adverse effects on the human body. On the contrary, it shows a permanent effect that becomes a part of the body by fusing with the bone over time. Implants not only contribute to the patient's external appearance, but also affect the habits of biting and chewing positively, eliminating the deficiency caused by tooth loss. The implants that provide long-term use both eliminate deformities and provide the desired positive change in facial appearance.

In the procedure performed under local anesthesia, the implant is applied by preparing a nest in the gap determined in the jawbone. The applied implant should fuse with the jawbone.

In this process, which is shaped according to the doctor's recommendation, it may be preferred to wear prosthetic teeth immediately.

Who Can Apply Implant Treatment?
