The Implants are artificial tooth roots placed in the jawbone to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth.
In Which Cases Is Implant Made?
In the absence of a single tooth, when it is not desired to touch the adjacent solid teeth, a single implant is applied in the form of fixed bridges by placing two or more implants to ensure prosthesis retention.
What are the Benefits of Implants?

During the completion of missing teeth, healthy teeth are not processed. It has a much longer life compared to all prostheses. Normally, the effects of tooth loss are psychological. The implant, as a special application that replaces the original tooth, brings the definitive and healthiest solution to all kinds of problems caused by tooth loss.

It can be applied to people of all ages. Older people need dental implants more because they lose more teeth and suffer bone loss.
-STAGES OF IMPLANTATION
Implant construction consists of two stages. The first is the surgical stage. The implant substructure is placed in the jawbone. Then there is a waiting period. During this time, bone formation occurs between the bone and the implant. It takes up to a week to make the superstructure.
- CARE OF THE IMPLANT
Oral care should be done completely and without neglect. This care is also necessary for our teeth. It should continue in the same way after implant treatment. If we do not clean enough, we can lose our implants in the same way as we lose our teeth. The first symptoms start with redness, swelling, bleeding and itching in the gums, causing bone destruction.
-WHO CANNOT USE IMPLANTS?
Diabetics, those with blood coagulation disorders, those who have been on cortisone treatment for a long time and cannot have implants. In past, those with large bone loss could not have implants, but today they can use implants thanks to bone grafts.
