Dental Implants

Dental health is one of the most crucial necessities in life. People all around the world do everything to make sure their teeth are healthy. But what happens if you happen to lose your teeth for various reasons? Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth.

Dental implants done by a skilled dentist look exactly like natural teeth. You can get your confidence back with the best care possible by contacting our team and we will take care of all your needs here in Turkey.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.

Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones.

Dental implant surgery is usually an outpatient surgery performed in stages, with healing time between procedures. The process of placing a dental implant involves multiple steps, including:

  •     Damaged tooth removal
  •     Jawbone preparation (grafting), when needed
  •     Dental implant placement
  •     Bone growth and healing
  •     Abutment placement
  •     Artificial tooth placement

The entire process can take many months from start to finish. Much of that time is devoted to healing and waiting for the growth of new bone in your jaw. Depending on your situation, the specific procedure done or the materials used, certain steps can sometimes be combined.

Pre-Op Instructions

  • Any medical conditions should be discussed prior to surgery date.
  • Please advise us if you are taking aspirin daily.
  • Take all medically prescribed daily medications as usual.
  • Take all medications prescribed by our office as directed.
  • Do not wear cosmetics around the mouth, as they may be inadvertently transferred into the surgical area during the procedure. Prior to surgery, your nose, cheeks, lips and chin will be disinfected.
  • Do not drink caffeinated beverages the day of surgery.
  • Do not drink alcoholic beverages for 3 days prior to surgery.
  • Do eat a light meal before arriving at our clinic for surgery unless otherwise directed.
  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing.

Post-Op Instructions

  • Some bleeding and oozing may be expected in the first 24 hours.
  • Avoid hard chewing, spitting, rinsing your mouth or using a straw for 24 hours.
  • Don’t check the operative site continuously and give the wounds enough time to heal.
  • If you are given removable temporary denture by our doctors, you should only start wearing them after three weeks.
  • You may experience swelling. It could last for 2-3 days after the surgery. Using several pillows or a recliner to keep your head elevated will help. Our doctors also recommend to apply ice packs to the swollen area by 10 minutes on-10 minutes off method for at least 6 hours.
  • You may start rinsing the day after, very gently, with some warm salt water. Over the next few days, continue this process with 3-4 rinses a day.
  • You may brush your teeth as usual, though be very careful near the surgical sites.
  • Do not use water flosser devices or hydrogen peroxide rinses for at least 2 weeks.
  • Your diet must include soft/colder foods. Avoid very hot foods, foods with sharp edges and try not to chew directly on the implant sites. You may start with non-abrasive foods such as mashed potatoes, soup, or scrambled eggs.
  • Limit physical activity for 24-48 hours, as it may lead to bleeding.
  • When lying down, keep your head elevated and use something like a towel on top of your pillows to avoid staining from the possible blood in your saliva.
  • No smoking for at least 3 days!
