The implant can be defined as artificial tooth roots made to support the prostheses and placed in the jawbone. These screws made of titanium last for life without any problems due to their strength. With the condition of being in sterile environment, dentists are placed in the jawbone by a small surgical procedure.
In 2-3 months, the implant is fully attached to the jawbone. After this period, the implant replacing a real tooth root, can now carry the prosthesis that will be placed onto it. Sometimes general anesthesia can be applied to patients. One of the conditions that will be searched for this implant treatment is a bone structure that will support the implant and the other is the healthy gums.
If these conditions are not present, additional bone enhancement surgery with the implant is also performed. The success rate is quite high.
