If you are missing a tooth or root, dental implantology is just what you need to restore your jaw to its original position. Especially patients who have lost one or more teeth due to illness or accident are in good hands with dental implantology.
The most important facts about dental implants
An implant is a tooth root replacement that is inserted into the jawbone with a minor surgical procedure. This is often done under local anesthesia. Most implants look like screws and are made of titanium, zirconium or a combination of these materials. A dental implant is therefore a kind of screw that is well accepted by the body. The artificial tooth is then placed on this screw.
For missing teeth that also no longer have a root, an artificial root is placed in the jaw by means of a fixed dental prosthesis (implant), on which your new tooth will sit. The biocompatibility has been tested with priority and is therefore very well tolerated by your jaw. Both together form a very high longevity and resilience of the jaw mechanism. The benefit is clear: you can chew normally again and almost as if you were using real teeth!
The surgical treatment is performed under local anesthesia (minimally invasive) or with the help of sedation, i.e. by administering a sedative, depending on the patient. The procedure is performed with open or closed healing. The difference is that with open healing, a specially made instrument called a gum shaper is placed at the same time. This remains visible. The difference with closed healing is that the gums are sutured over the implant after the implant is placed.
Our dental implants in Antalya are made exclusively to European standards using digital volume tomography by laboratories specialized on dental surgery to ensure the best results.
After dental surgery, the initial wound surface heals within 7 to 10 days. This is followed by the actual healing phase, which can vary according to individual circumstances. The strength of the bone and the respective implant area are important here. The healing process for the upper jaw takes 4 to 6 months, while for the lower jaw it is only completed after about 3 to 4 months. Of course, in this period you will receive a temporary prosthesis from our team of physicians in Turkey to ensure a certain level of comfort during the healing phase. After the healing phase, the respective prosthesis (in the form of a bridge, crown or also as a fixed prosthesis) is successfully attached to your jaw using a supra-structure. The outpatient treatment usually takes 1 to 6 hours.
Before the surgical procedure in dental implantology is performed, our patients receive extensive consultation and information. This is followed by a thorough examination by our dentists. We use a multi-stage approach: The first examination covers the current condition of your jaw (jaw quality, deformities) and the condition of your soft tissue. If this is not intact, subsequent damage such as caries, inflammation (gingivitis, periodontitis) and, on the other hand, bone and gum loss can result. In the second phase, it is important to learn about your medical history and, to some extent, your family history, which is performed in the form of a conventional anamnesis. Only after that can a smooth handling be guaranteed.

Imagine that they are your real teeth. Just like real teeth, dental implants need thorough care in the form of traditional brushing and flossing. Of course, our dental implant team in Antalya will provide you with detailed advice and other useful tips.
Pain is largely minimised by our minimally invasive treatment method. The healing process differs from person to person, as every body has different requirements and reacts differently to wound healing. Poor oral hygiene, imprecise interventions may entail risks, about which you will be informed completely and free of charge via our registered contact channels.
Costs vary widely, as the respective initial situation and implantation method have to be taken into account. Our prices usually start at 500EUR. In addition, you can obtain a small subsidy from your health insurance by applying for a fixed subsidy for dentures.
