IMPLANTSImplants are artificial roots usually produced from titanium, that are embedded within jaw bones for the purpose of restoring the functionality and aesthetics of missing teeth.  

Implant treatments are a safe for of treatment provided they are conducted by specialist physicians. Currently, the success rate of implant treatments has reached approximately 98% and treatments generally yield a high rate of satisfaction. Implants are now regarded as having a service life that is equal to that of natural teeth. In many cases, implant treatments usually yield longer lasting solutions compared to the treatment of natural teeth, especially when implant treatments are conducted after the ages of 35-40. In conclusion, implants can be used for a whole lifetime. Detailed information regarding this subject will be provided by your dentist. Implant treatments can be performed on every patient that has experienced a loss of teeth, whether they are missing just a single tooth or their entire set of teeth.

The area of the jaw bone where implants are anticipated to be embedded must possess a certain height and width to accommodate the implant screw. The quality of the jaw bone determines how soon a prosthetic tooth can be placed over the implant screws. If the patients' general state of health is fine, there is no upper limit to the age in which implant treatments can be conducted on patients. However, implant treatments may not be preferred for implementation on young patients that have not fully completed their skeletal development.  

Generally, the pain experienced on the night when implants are embedded can be eliminated with the help of simple painkillers. Many patients have stated that this pain is no different than the pain experienced after having their teeth pulled out. The amount of time required for the completion of implant treatments depends on the quality of the bone where the implants are embedded and the actual location of the implants. However, our dentists can sometimes provide you with a temporary prosthesis to temporarily restore your chewing functionality and aesthetic appearance.   

Generally, a patient must visit their dentists 5-6 times from the first examination to the completion of the prosthesis. If it is possible to place a prosthesis on the implants immediately, 2 sessions will be sufficient for the completion of the treatment. The duration of these sessions will vary depending on the work conducted. To sum it up; if the patients have a hard or medium-hard bone structure, the treatments will generally be completed in 4-6 weeks. If patients have week bone structures, the treatments may last up to 2-5 months. 

Both fixed porcelain crowns and removable prosthesis can be planned by the dentists over implants. The design most suitable for your needs will be explained to you by your dentist before your treatment commences.  

Cleaning implants by brushing is just as important as brushing your teeth. The most important factor to keep in consideration is that oral care should be taken on a continual basis.  

Patients that have lost all of their teeth and carry total dentures: These patients usually have complaints of experiencing continual pain and degradation of their chewing abilities stemming from the movements of the prosthesis. Implant treatments eliminate all of the abovementioned complaints and also prevent bone loss. 

Implants are produced from titanium which is proven not to have any adverse effects on organisms and have been subjected to extensive research for many years. Studies evidencing the fact that bone tissue forms a complete bond with titanium has been published in 1982. There have been no reported cases of the human body producing antigens against titanium implants and rejecting them as in the case of heart and kidney transplants.
