Materials that can replace missing tooth roots are called implants. It is used to support implants, crowns, bridges or prostheses. They are surgically placed in the jawbone. Implants are generally more reliable and natural than other methods used to complete missing teeth.

The general health of people with missing teeth may be affected by malnutrition. Because of the missing teeth, they cannot chew well and eat all types of food. At the same time, loss of teeth causes the closure to change, causing problems in the jaw joint called the TMJ. Persons' self-esteem is also affected as a result of disorders that may occur due to tooth loss.

The jawbone in the area of ​​the missing teeth begins to melt in time. If the amount of melt is higher, the amount of bone in the jaw is increased with the help of bone grafts. This allows the tissue infrastructure to which the implant or prosthesis can be adapted.

Implants are made of titanium, small cylindrical and screw-like materials. The abutment, which is a metal neck, is screwed into the implant after the implant has been inserted into the jawbone. Abutment forms the foundation for crown, bridge or prosthesis.

Osseointegration has a decisive effect on the success of all implants. In this procedure, the jaw bone fuses with the implant. Implants are made of titanium because the jawbone perceives titanium as part of the body.


Implants have many advantages. First of all, they are much more comfortable compared to their alternatives. They are similar to your natural teeth because they are placed in your jawbone. They help you trust yourself because your prosthesis has no possibility of slipping, clogging, or coming out. It is clear that chewing is better when compared to classical prostheses. A patient who uses a classic upper full denture will experience complete reduction of the upper palate as the upper palate is fully closed. You will not experience such a problem in the implanted prosthesis.


If you have a missing tooth or teeth, if your general health is good, if you have healthy gums and a bone in your jaw to support the implants, then it means your implant candidate. Even if bone loss is present in your jaw bone, you may be able to become an implant candidate. However, the bone must be reconstructed with some special procedures. Your implanted teeth and surrounding tissues should be treated very well. In order to do this, it is sufficient to carry out regular dentist checks as well as brushing teeth and using floss.

Young patients who have not completed bone development, pregnant women, people who use large amounts of cigarettes, alcohol or drug addicts, high dose radiotherapy to the head and neck region it is not. People with chronic diseases or systemic problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, connective tissue diseases, hemophilia and significant immune deficiencies are not a good candidate for the implant. However, depending on the degree and severity of their condition, implant placement may be possible. An implant is not recommended, as people with corticosteroids or immunosuppressive drugs, and those with a high degree of dental tightening and grind- ing are likely to have a high risk of success (for overloading the implant).

Your dentist will assess your condition and decide if you are a good implant candidate.


Your dentist will examine your mouth and teeth and learn about your medical and dental health. A panoramic x-ray is taken and your dentist decides whether implant / implants can be made. Then, you will inform you in terms of the procedure, wages and complications that may occur and prepare a special treatment plan by taking your wishes and needs into consideration.



The chance of success in implant surgery is more than 90%. Trauma to the bone and gingiva, such as trauma, infection around the implant, smoking, etc., may reduce the integration of the implant into the bone environment, which may affect the success of the implant. At the same time, insufficiency of healthy bone may cause the implant not to be integrated. In cases where there is not enough bone, the implants cannot be immobilized and the bone cannot be integrated.
