What is an implant?
A dental implant is the right choice for adults of all ages to complete missing teeth, whether you have lost teeth from birth or due to injury, infection or decay. Implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are placed in the jawbone to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth.
Today, it is only possible to stop the melting of the jawbone, which is one of the important problems in tooth loss, with implants. Implants provide better speech and chewing function than traditional veneers and prostheses, while also giving your face a natural look.
How is the Implant Applied?
Whether your implant treatment will be performed in one stage or in several stages, your dentist will first perform a detailed examination of your teeth and gums. The implant brand to be used is selected and an incision is made in the area where the implant will be placed by the dental surgeon and the implant is placed. Then, a very small stitch is placed in the area where the implant is placed, and these stitches usually fall off on their own. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, but in some cases, it can also be performed under general anesthesia with the approval of your physician. After the healing period of your implant is completed, your new teeth are placed on it.
What are the Advantages of the Implant?
The advantages of dental implants compared to alternatives such as prostheses and bridges are very important. We can list the main advantages of these advantages as follows.
1) Provides Natural Appearance.
Dental implants look and function like healthy, natural teeth. They are so comfortable that they are almost no different from natural teeth. You can brush and floss your natural teeth as you would, so you don't have to remove them for cleaning like dentures do. It also preserves your natural face shape and smile, making you look completely natural.
2) Lifetime Usable.
Properly applied dental implants can last for decades. Many other options, including some dental bridges and dentures, may need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years. However, with the right implants made by experts, this problem disappears.
3) Implants Won't Slip or Come Off.
Your dental implants won't slip when you talk, eat or laugh. It also makes your speech more natural than other prostheses. You can use dental implants to eat what you love, say what you want to say, be as active as you want and smile widely.
4) Prevents Bone Loss.
Having a cavity in your mouth after losing one or more of your teeth can lead to health problems such as deterioration in the jawbone. Dental implants are actually the single most reliable option to help promote bone growth and prevent bone loss. Having an implant as soon as possible after losing the tooth helps prevent bone loss in the area.
What Should You Pay Attention To After Implant?
After your implant is placed, you should avoid cold and hot foods for a few hours. Your doctor will share the required time with you. You will need painkillers and antibiotics after the implant. If you have a complaint such as swelling or discomfort in the days after the surgery and it gets worse, you should contact your doctor.
How Long Is the Implant Used?
Implants are made of special titanium material. These materials do not cause allergies. Since it is a material suitable for the human body, the body does not react to it. After the bone formation is completed, the implants are used for a lifetime in a healthy jawbone.

At this point, our priority is whether your teeth, jaw and gums are healthy, that is, whether you are a suitable patient for implants.
