Dental Implant

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are one of the most effective restoration procedures in dentistry and are highly recommended for patients needing to fill gaps created by missing teeth.
Dentaluna Clinic offers the highest quality dental implants in the Istanbul/Turkey. An in-demand dental procedure at our clinic, dental implants are titanium posts or frames that our top dental surgeons surgically position into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, we mount or attach replacement teeth onto them. Because dental implants interface with your jawbone, they provide fixed support for artificial teeth. Dental implants are not removable inside your mouth — a crucial factor that eliminates embarrassment when speaking and eating.

What are the Signs You Need Dental Implants?

Dental implants may be the best option if you experience one or more of the following:

  • Having lost one or more of your natural teeth
  • Dissatisfaction with loose dentures or partials
  • Bone loss in the jaw area
  • Sunken-in look to the face or loss of volume
  • A broken tooth that restorative dentistry cannot fix
  • Difficulty chewing, eating, and speaking because of your teeth
  • An infected tooth that must be pulled out
  • Insecurity with your appearance or smile

What are the Types of Dental Implants?

  • Individual Dental Implants
    If you are missing only one tooth, a single dental implant and a crown can easily replace it. Individual dental implants can take the place of a lost natural tooth without sacrificing the health of surrounding teeth.
  • Dental Bridges
    We may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile if more than one tooth is missing.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges
    An implant-supported bridge is an option that does not depend on natural teeth for support and is instead connected to dental implants. Better stability is just one of the advantages of implant bridges placed at Cunning Dental Group in CA.
  • MySecure Smile (MSS) or Bar-Retained, Implant Assisted Overdentures
    Our dentists can attach a firm mounting bar on top of two or three dental implants. The bar serves as a locking mechanism that creates a stable mounting point for specially designed dentures to simply and securely snap into place. Traditional bridges fill the space caused by lost teeth, and are then secured in place by crowns attached to the neighboring teeth.
  • Teeth in 1 Day - Implant Supported Fixed Prosthesis (ISFP)
    Teeth In One Day allows for the minimum number of implants for the maximum number of teeth in less than a day. This is a popular procedure at Cunning Dental Group and it requires a minimum of only four implants to support a full arch of top and bottom teeth.

Dental Implant Procedure: What are the Steps?

The process of placing one or multiple dental implants involves these essential steps:
  • Extraction of damaged tooth or teeth
  • Jawbone preparation (grafting), if necessary
  • Placement of dental implants
  • Bone growth and healing
  • Placement of implant abutment
  • Placement of artificial tooth
It is important to know that completing a traditional dental implant procedure can take a few months. Each person heals differently. The initial few months is dedicated to healing and waiting for the new bone in your jaw to grow and fuse to the dental implant.
