People who have lost teeth might feel self-conscious to smile or talk. Furthermore, biting irregularities caused by tooth loss can have a negative effect on eating habits, which on the other hand may lead to secondary health problems like malnutrition.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss.
Teeth are lost because of:
- Tooth decay
- Root canal failure
- Gum disease (Periodontitis)
- Trauma to the mouth (tooth injury)
- Excessive wear and tear
- Congenital defects

How is the dental implant procedure performed?
Your dentist or specialist will carefully examine your mouth and take x-rays of your head, jaw and teeth. In most cases dental implant treatment is undertaken under local anesthesia. An Implant is a treatment method applied in two stages. During the first stage of surgery, your dentist will put a dental implant into your jawbone beneath the gum tissue. The gum tissue is then stitched back into place and as the tissue heals, the implant will bond with the bone and attach to the gum. It can take several months to heal.
After 2-3 months, during the second stage of surgery once the tissue is healed, your dentist will attach an abutment to the implant. An abutment is a post that connects the replacement tooth to the implant. An artificial replacement tooth is made and your dentist attaches it to the abutment. It may take a few appointments to properly fit the replacement tooth to the abutment. When replacing several teeth or all of your teeth, a fixed bridge is anchored to your dental implants. A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth by spanning an area that has no teeth. The bridge is held firmly in place by dental implants on each side of the missing tooth or teeth. Two visits to Turkey are required to complete the treatment. This ensures that the implants are strong in the jaw bone to support your new Crowns.

Recovery and results
The patient may experience some of the typical discomforts associated with any type of dental surgery, such as swelling of your gums and face, pain at the implant site and minor bleeding. Pain medications or antibiotics may be needed after the procedure. You are advised to eat soft foods while the surgical site heals. You will need to wait about 3 months for healing to take place and for the dental implant to integrate with the jawbone. The results of dental implants are long-lasting.
