Dental implants are substitute materials for missing teeth, imitating the tooth root. These materials can be made of pure titanium or titanium-zirconium alloy. If you are going to have an implant in Turkey the most important thing to consider is the dentist to carry out the procedure and the material s/he is going to use. DG Health Care helps you choose the best from among hundreds of implant brands, as less-than-ideal materials may be harmful to you, leading to a possible loss of healthy mouth tissue.

When to prefer dental implants.

In cases of one missing tooth it is an alternative to bridge prostheses, as a way to keep intact your healthy teeth. Why wouldn’t you prefer dental implants when the cost is nearly the same as bridges?

In cases of complete edentulism, or when teeth extraction is needed, implant treatment is the ideal method to meet both your functional and aesthetic needs.

How dental implants are applied.

This is a surgical procedure where local, or optionally, general anaesthesia is given. (Clients with dentophobia prefer treatment with general anaesthesia.) Duration of the procedure depends on the number of implants to be applied. Following the completion of the sterilisation process it takes about 15 or 20 minutes to place one implant in the jawbone. It should be noted, though, that the process depends on indications. In order to apply a prosthesis onto the implant we need to wait for the completion of the osseointegration process (the fusing of the implant with the jawbone), which can take about three months depending on bone quality. Full recovery means that the prostheses, prepared in laboratories, are ready to be placed on the implant abutments. The laboratory process, depending on the planning, may vary from seven to 14 days.

In short, dental implants can be described as double-stage treatments. And these two stages, namely the surgical and the prosthetic stages, will require you to visit us two times.

What you need to consider in dental implants. A successful treatment requires the right dentist, right planning and right materials. Your treatment may fail in the long run if even one of these is missing. Poor quality materials may result in implant losses over a short or long period. The importance of planning can be seen better in the prosthetic stage, as implants placed in the right position and right number affect the position and function of porcelain prostheses in your mouth. Mistakes in planning are sadly almost irremediable, and only skilled dentists can manage the materials and planning aspect. So if you want to have an implant you need to take account of these three parameters.
