Dental Implant

Implant treatment in Antalya covers the process of placing root-shaped structures into the jaw bones in order to eliminate tooth deficiencies that occur for various reasons. The structures in question are generally titanium-based and in the form of screws.

How is a dental implant applied?

The specialist dentist determines whether the patient is suitable for implant treatment. If the measurements show that the bone structure is suitable for implant treatment, the application phase begins.

If the bone structure and gums are not in a position to carry the implant, additional bone surgery can be applied.

Implants are placed into the bone by a dentist under local anesthesia with a minor surgical operation. After this procedure, it takes an average of 2–4 months for the implant to fuse with the jawbone. In cases where the bone level is sufficient and there is no inflammatory condition, the implant can be placed in the area on the same day, immediately after the tooth is extracted.

During this period, the implant gains real tooth root function. In the final stage, the prosthesis is placed on the new tooth root consisting of implants, and the treatment is complete.
