About Dental Implants

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are artifical roots placed into the jaws in place of lost or missing teeth. In our clinic, dental implant surgeries are done under local anesthesia, with implants chosen according to the height and structure of the patient’s bone. The surgery is typically done withing 10 minutes. In cases where bone structure isn’t enough for implants, additional operations can be done such as bone grafting.

After the implant is placed, a waiting period starts to let the bone heal and connect with implant material. This period typically lasts 2-3 months, but can be longer depending on the patient’s healing levels. After this period, a base in the shape of a prepared tooth is placed on the implants, then the treatment is finished with the specific denture being placed on this base.

There’s constant research done about implant treatments, which significantly increased the success rate of implants in recent years. Surface qualities of a dental implant, made from titanium, shows great adaptation to bone structure and has no toxic effects on human body.
