The dental implant is artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. They can be used in single or multiple tooth deficiencies and they are compatible with the body. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge, or removable prosthesis.
A removable prosthesis can be an option for patients with severe bone resorption if they are supported by 2 or 4 implants. With the help of soft tissues and implant support, this system will greatly increase patient comfort and quality of life. Under local anesthesia, implant treatment is performed in a short time with a simple intervention.
Antibiotics, painkillers, anti-inflammatory agents and antiseptic mouthwashes are recommended by your surgeon after surgery. Especially if you apply ice compresses, you will not have any problems such as pain, swelling, and edema. After surgery, the placed implant is expected to connect to the bone in 2-4 months. The average duration is 3 months. If bone graft material is applied, the waiting period can be extended up to 6 months. These periods may vary from case to case and according to bone density.
Osseointegration is the direct structural and functional connection between living bone and the surface of a load-bearing artificial implant. After completing this process fixed prosthesis can be applied. The completion of the prosthesis takes 7-10 days. If your bone is insufficient for implant application, a bone graft may be applied.
