What is a dental implant? Can it be applied to everyone?

Natural teeth can be lost because of reasons such as decay, gingival diseases, accidents, etc. With dental implant treatment, the lost teeth can be replaced with teeth that feel as if the patients' own. Dental implant treatment can be applied to any patient whose jaw development is completed and whose general state of health is good. Except for patients with very rare health problems, implant treatment has been applied with a success rate of 98% for 35 years, to patients with good oral hygiene and whose other dental problems are treated. Also, the development of imaging technology and advanced surgical techniques in recent years has almost made insufficient bone concept obsolete.

Will I feel too much pain during the treatment?  How long do the sessions take?

The level of pain during and after the implant operation is the same with the level of pain during the tooth extraction procedure, so it is a very painless operation. In a typical case, the time needed to place an implant is around 20 to 30 minutes.

What is the advantage of implant compared to other treatments?

The most important advantage of implant treatment is that neighboring natural teeth are not damaged. In addition, it prevents osteoporosis, the prosthesis feels as if it is the patient's own tooth, and the treatment process is completed with very simple and short operation. Also, dental implants help to restore your natural smile.  Naturally, a beautiful smile offers self-confidence, vitality, and youth.
