Dental implants have become more popular recently, because of the advancement of cosmetic medicine, the operation techniques and the materials that make up the implants. So, the turnout has become high by people who want to restore their teeth and their bright smile. Turkey was on the list of countries in providing this medical service, for the provision of high-quality dental materials at relatively low cost compared to other European and American countries.
Dental implants are among the most requested surgical dentistry procedures. The doctor replaces the missing teeth with implants that are surgically implanted into the jaw bones, then he covers them with a crown from the top, in a manner that suits and fits the teeth in the mouth naturally. The process of dental implants is characterized by the lack of a certain limit of implanted teeth, as you can implant one or many teeth; with cost differences and after consulting your doctor of course.
The doctor begins a full examination of the patient’s mouth as fully as any routine and periodic examination, he also examines the patient’s medical history to make sure there are no chronic diseases that prevent the patient from doing dental implants. Among the conditions that must be met for you to be a candidate for dental implants are:
It takes about half an hour to implant a tooth; dental implants are accompanied by a slight pain that can be treated with ordinary painkillers. The implant success rate is 95% for the lower jaw and 90% for the upper jaw, since it is more difficult to attach the implants to the upper jaw bones.
Implanted teeth can last for more than 20 years, this, of course, depends on how well the patient is taking care of his/her health, and his/her interest in the cleanliness and health of their teeth on a daily basis.
