Dental implants are materials made of titanium that mimic the emerging tooth root, replacing missing teeth. Titanium is the most bio-compatible material for the human body. Thus, dental implants do not harm human health. With the dental implants that will be implanted into the bone in the toothless regions, the previously lost function and aesthetic of the region is regained.
Nowadays many people think that implant is a complicated and painful treatment process, but this is a completely wrong information. In the dental implant process, in the first session, implant is painlessly placed into the bone in the relevant region in as little as 15 minutes following local anesthesia. Afterwards, there is a 3-month waiting period for the implants to form a tight bond between the bone and the implant in the jawbone. This process is an important process for increasing the resistance of the tooth that will be placed on the implant. At the end of this three-month period, in the second session, measurements are performed over the implants made, and after 3 or 4 days, the patient regains the tooth he lost before. There is no pain in any of these processes.
Also, it should not be waited too much to make an implant in the region where teeth are lost. In the teeth adjacent to the toothless region or in the teeth opposite to the toothless region, there is a tendency towards tipping and bone thinning in the region concerned. This makes it difficult to implant in this region. In this case, bone grafting is applied to this region or advanced surgical methods to improve the quality and size of the bone are applied. Dental implants are a more aesthetic and hygienic treatment method than root canal method.
