In our vision, diagnosis, planning and integration of the implant surgery in the architecture of a treatment plan are just as important, if not more important than the surgery itself. For this reason, before any surgery, we plan the final smile and the entire treatment sequence. This approach drives us to correctly plan the ideal position of the dental implants and the ideal timing in the treatment sequence.
During the first consultation, our prosthodontist and oral surgeon evaluates the X-ray and consult with the patient. We use specialized, high-tech 3D imaging to visualize the bone structure and ensure proper conditions. We evaluate bone and gum tissue, and to determine the proper spacing for the implants.
A single dental implant placement to a jaw which has appropriate bone width and density will take approximately 15-20 minutes. Depending on the number of implants to be placed, bone width and density, the whole process may take up to 2 hours. After the surgical procedure is performed according to the protocol, the patient is given advice and instructions for the healing period (necessary time for the bone recover). If no sufficient bone tissue is available for dental implantation, a special dental surgical procedure called bone augmentation or bone graft is provided to replace missing bone tissue.
During the next 2-3 months (healing time) after dental implantation, the tooth implant heals under the gum, i.e. the dental implant integrates into the jawbone. During this period the patient has to maintain perfect oral hygiene and take medications as instructed.
After the healing period, it is time to build the crown, the bridge, or the prosthesis for an entire upper or lower jaw. There are many types of restoration on dental implants from simple solutions (single crown on one tooth implant or bridge on two dental implants) to full restorations (full bridge on 6-8 dental implants, All-on-4 fixed dentures)
The long-term success of the dental implant and the artificial tooth built on it cannot be guaranteed without careful oral hygiene; therefore, it is very important that the patient maintains, and improves if necessary, his or her oral hygiene. After the prosthetic procedure, patients have a check-up examination at least every year to check oral hygiene and the function and stability of the tooth implant.
A dental implant is a screw which is made of titanium to replace the root of a tooth. In dentistry, dental implants are used to replace both, a single tooth or multiple teeth. An attachment called an ‘abutment’ is connected to the dental implants after the healing process is over. The abutments are used to attach a dental crown, bridge, or removable denture to the implant fixtures.
Cost of dental implants in Turkey is around 30 to 40 percent of what the costs in Europe. Other dental procedures are also significantly low-priced. We use the same high quality materials and Implant brands however the cost of living, running a dental clinic and wages are much lower. Moreover, all your treatments are done by specialists using high-tech materials.
You will need to make two visits to complete your treatment. For first visit you need to stay 5 days and for second visit you need to stay 8 days. During the first appointment, your surgeon places the implant in the jawbone. Then, the surgeon covers the implant with gum tissue to allow the implant to heal properly. The healing period may vary 3-6 months depending on the patient's bone condition. If you want to wait longer than 3-6 months for your Dental Crowns this will not affect your procedure and is perfectly safe. The choice is up-to-you depending on your available holiday dates and of course your budget.
Dental implants can be placed in the jaw of patients of any age (with fully developed jawbones), provided that they have a sufficient quantity and quality of jawbone tissue available. Most healthy individuals that maintain a good oral hygiene are suitable candidates for teeth implants.
Implant treatment is not an experimental approach; It is a proven, state-of-the-art medical dental technique that has been scientifically tested and used for decades by surgeons and dentists worldwide. Possible risk factors may vary depending on the condition of each patient. Limited wound healing due to poor oral hygiene or pre-existing medical conditions (such as diabetes and osteoporosis) may reduce the possibility of implant remaining in place. Your dentist will evaluate whether dental implants are the right option for you, as there are potential risks with each surgical procedure.
Dental implants last for a lifetime in healthy individuals who maintain good oral hygiene.
