What is an implant?

In our clinic that uses the latest technology, we offer you the dental implant technique that is recommended in cases of tooth loss. In the application of this treatment technique, an implant screw which acts as a tooth root is inserted into the jawbone where the tooth loss occurred. A dental prosthesis, that will adapt both optically and functionally to your teeth, is placed on the top of the implant screw. This successful form of dental implant treatment provides you with an excellent tooth appearance without damaging the neighboring teeth and offers a dental comfort that you will not regret.

Who can have a dental implant treatment?

The professional and experienced doctors in our clinic apply dental implant treatment to every patient who has completed the age of 18 and whose jaw structure examination before the treatment has been resulted positive. Patients who request dental implant treatment are asked if diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure exist. In addition, the health status of the jawbone is checked with the help of an X-raying. After finishing all examinations, a positive or negative result comes out. Our doctors offer the most appropriate treatment method in order to give the patient the healthy smile that he/she has always wanted to have.

At the end of the positive health and jawbone examination, a draft of the dental prosthesis is created by taking the measures of the patient’s jaw bones and neighboring teeth. In dental implant treatment, the area where the patient’s dental prosthesis will be placed is anesthetized and the treatment begins with the placement of the dental implant screw in the tooth bone. When choosing the single-stage application method, the dental screw that acts as the root of the tooth is inserted into the jawbone of our patients and a temporary dental veneers is attached on top of it. Patients who prefer two-staged dental implant treatment, get the top of the dental screw covered with gums and the treated area is left to recover. After the recovery, the prosthetic heads are placed on the dental screw, providing an excellent appearance.

What is the All on Four Implant Technique?

The quad implant system, also known as All on Four Implant technique, is a highly advanced dental prosthesis method recommended by our professional dentists for patients with multiple tooth loss. Instead of replacing the tooth lost with a single prosthetic tooth, four dental implant screws are inserted into the lower and upper jaw, that act as tooth roots. Prosthetic teeth are fixed on these four dental implant screws in order to provide the patient’s smile of his will. Thanks to this dental treatment method, the patient both has the desired tooth appearance and a healthy tooth structure. Prosthetic teeth placed with All on Four Implant technique give a real tooth sensation and allow the patient to return to his daily life easily.

Who can All on Four Implant Technique be applied to?

Before the All on Four Implant treatment, as with the traditional dental implant treatment, the patient’s disease background is checked and a jaw and bone examination is performed. All patients who are deemed suitable for a dental implant application and are over 18 years of age can have the smile they want by getting this dental treatment.

What are the All on Four Implant treatment stages?

As a result of the pre-examination, a personalized treatment plan is prepared by our specialist doctors according to the demands and needs of the patient. Using local anesthesia or sedation, 4 dental implants are placed in the upper and lower jawbone of the patient. Just like in the single-staged dental implant application, a temporary veneer is placed on these dental screws in the All on Four Implant application. At the end of approximately three months, the patient’s temporary veneers are removed and replaced with permanent dental prostheses specially prepared for the patient.

The Success of All On Four Implant Treatments

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are screws made of titanium and used in the treatment of missing teeth, placed inside the jawbone. Dental prostheses are placed on the upper part of these placed screws. Dental implant treatment never harms the teeth next to the treated tooth. This is an advantage over all other dental treatments. All on four dental implants act as a root for your tooth. Therefore, you can continue your normal life as if it were your own tooth.

Are implants safe and how long will they last?

Dental implants are extremely safe when all necessary examinations are performed and researches are provided. However, the same complications that can be seen in other dental treatments can also be seen in dental implants. For example, if the anatomical formations in the upper and lower jaws are not carefully examined or the length of the tooth implant cannot be carefully calculated, the sinus cavities in the upper jaw can be perforated. However, such situations are prevented by our specialist dentists. If dental implants are done properly, they are extremely long-lasting. If the bone tissue of the patient who has a full mouth implant is sufficient, there will be no problem in the all on four treatment. In addition, full mouth implants can be used for a lifetime if the patient does not smoke, that is, gives great importance to oral hygiene, does not disrupt his routine checks after dental implants. Depending on the usage situation, the prostheses placed on the all on six dental implant may wear out. In this case, the prostheses may have to be changed in the range of 5 or 10 years.

I have some of my own teeth. Can I still have implants?

Full mouth implants can be made, as well as special implants for some teeth. Generally, a whole mouth implant is a difficult process in terms of both financial and health. However, it is possible. When a full mouth implant is desired, the condition of the patient’s upper and lower jawbone also has an effect. So, as a result, it is possible to have an implant even if you still have your own teeth.

Can implants always be used to replace missing teeth?

Missing teeth in the patient’s mouth can cause some problems as long as they do not fill their place. These problems manifest themselves in the mouth as chewing disorders, the sliding of other teeth into the spaces and the resulting gaps between the teeth, discomfort in the gums or cavities. It is possible to avoid these problems. While completing these missing teeth, the number of missing teeth can also lead to changes in the all on four implant treatment. However, in general, dental implants or whole mouth dental implant applications are used in patients. As they can be used for a lifetime, they also hold up quite well if cared for well.

Do implants hurt?

Contrary to popular belief, tooth implant treatment is an extremely painless procedure. Because local anesthesia is applied to the area to be treated before the procedure, the patient does not notice anything. Moreover, patients do not experience any pain both during and after the procedure. If we need to compare implant treatment with another treatment, tooth extraction is a much more painful procedure than implant treatment. No sensation or pain occurs during the implant.

How long does the treatment take?

Implant treatment generally consists of two stages. The first phase of treatment takes 10 to 15 minutes on average. It takes 3-4 minutes to place each tooth implant used in the treatment process. First, dental implants are placed in the jawbone and fixed. Afterwards, there is a process of union of the implants placed for at least 3 months to 6 months. As a result, the implant treatment ends. In order for the implant treatment to proceed in a healthy way, some health conditions must be complete. If these conditions are not met, the completion of this treatment process may take approximately 2 or 3 months.

Are the implant teeth difficult to clean?

What is done after the implant treatment is as important as the process. The first of these is the care of the implant. It is quite normal for patients to have bleeding in their gums in the first period after full mouth implant treatment. Nothing should be consumed within the first 2 hours after the procedure. For the next 2-3 days, the consumption of very hot or very cold things should be avoided. Inflammation can occur in implanted teeth, just as in your own teeth. In addition, plaque formation can occur. For these reasons, an individual with a tooth implant should pay more attention to oral and dental health and be hygienic compared to a normal individual.

You do not have to have implants for each tooth. If you have lost all of your teeth throughout an arch, it might be possible to replace them with as few as 4 or 6 dental implants.
