Dental implants are screw like devices, usually made of titanium ,used to replace missing teeth in the jawbone. These prosthetic devices support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, bridges or dentures like roots of teeth anchoring the jawbone. They are strong and biocompatible materials, which means that it is not rejected by the body tissues.
Everyone who have lost teeth is a candidate for dental implants. Being in good health is important because there are some conditions and diseases that can affect the success of dental implants. For example, uncontrolled diabetes, osteoporosis, radiation therapy to the jaws, cancer, excessive smoking, alcoholism, or advanced periodontal (gum) disease may affect the integretion of dental implants to jawbone.
The planning of location and number of implants requires a detailed intraoral and radiological examination. This will necessitate intaoral study models of your mouth and bite and radiographs (x-rays), which may include digital 3D scans known as computerized tomography. Planning with the help of digital imaging ensures that dental implants can be placed in accurate position in the jawbone. Nowadays, dental volumetric tomography devices (CBCT: Cone Beam Computerized Tomography) are routinely used in dental implantology.
In our dental clinics, implant placements and related restorations are assessed and planned by a dental team consists of an oral surgeon, a general dentist and a dental lab technican.
Implants are placed under local anesthesia or conscious sedation in a well-equipped surgical operation room with a well-trained surgical assistant. Please be sure that strict infection control procedures, especially in implant surgeries, is done in all kind of treatments in our clinics.
