A dental implant is a prosthetic part that contains a surgical component that after a healing period integrates to the bone of the jaw to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture. The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration where materials, such as titanium, form an intimate bond to bone.
If you’re missing a tooth, you have got several options. The least advisable is to do nothing! It’s not just about aesthetics…
Full mouth dental implants are placed by a periodontist, who attaches implants (they look like small screws) directly into the jaw bone. Crowns are then attached to the implants for a secure, natural-looking fit and result. A full set of implants is custom-created for your mouth and can be placed as one bar of teeth to fill in your smile when you are missing more than a couple of teeth. Because they’re permanent, you’ll never have to use adhesive or remove your implants.
How many time do I have to wait for the placement of the permanent teeth?
Usually the timeframe is of 3 months but since you are traveling to another contry and we want to make sure that the dental implants are healed in the bone and ready to load with the crowns.
Can I have temporary teeth during the healing period?
Yes, you can. Your treatment plan include the temporary teeth too.
How many dental implants can I have in my mouth in 1 surgery?
If you are looking for a full mouth in Implant and Dental Clinic Turkey we try to solve the situation with the less amount of dental implants since this will save you money without compromise the outcome of your treatment. You will need enough implants to support the amount of teeth and roots that need to be replaced. The number of implants will also be based on your mouth’s bone density. The bone around the lower front teeth tends to be the densest and the upper posterior being the poorest quality of bone.
For a full arch of teeth, you need a minimum of 6 implants per arch. Several factors need to be considered, such as the type and number of teeth being replaced, your “bite”, any clenching or grinding habits, your age and how long you wish the implants to last, your bone density, etc.
How much does a full mouth of dental implants cost?
The total cost depends on the number of implants you receive and the material you decide to use. You will also pay less if your bone volume is in good condition because you won’t need grafting or other procedures that are required to help anchor the implants.
