Curious about the implant

Maybe you hide your smile because of missing teeth or because you don’t feel safe and comfortable enough with your prosthesis. Or you have difficulty eating or talking because of your missing tooth. Then maybe you can consider an implant!

What is an implant?

Implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone and made of suitable material in order to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth. Implants are commonly made of tissue-appropriate, highly durable, and high-tech titanium. The look and feel of implants is so natural that you often forget about their existence.

Who is it suitable for?

There is no age limit in implant treatment. It is suitable for patients of all ages. It is only necessary to wait for the completion of bone development for young people. This occurs until the age of 16-17 in girls and 18 in boys. There is no upper age limit for adults. It may not be done only if there are risks that may occur due to age.

What are the benefits of implant treatment?

First of all, it will make you smile without hesitation. A big, healthy, happy smile has positive effects on many things, such as your self-confidence and work life. In addition, the implant will allow you to talk comfortably, eat and do many things you want comfortably.

Is pain felt during the treatment?

Relax because the implant treatment is performed with local anesthesia, so you normally do not feel pain or discomfort. In general, what you will feel after the implant is equivalent to what you will feel after a simple tooth extraction. However, in some cases, it can be applied under general anesthesia.

How long does the treatment process take?

Implant treatment normally consists of 3-4 visits to the dentist within 3-6 months.

Is the implant safe?

The success rate in implant treatment is quite high. The ideal patient profile for implant treatment is non-smokers and those who take care of their oral health with healthy gums.
