How Is a Dental Implant Made?
Dental implant treatment, which is a simple surgical procedure, should be evaluated when the tooth was extracted or how thick the jawbone is. It does not pose a risk to the implants made on the anterior teeth, as there is no load when the jaw is closed. If there is no problem in the jawbone, the size and type of the implant are determined in proportion to the bone thickness, then the implant socket is opened in the area with special surgical tools and the implant is placed in the jawbone like a screw. After the implant is fused to the bone (this takes about 6-8 weeks), the prosthesis is placed on the implant and the process is terminated.

As a result of placing the implants in the jawbone, it will be necessary to wait between 6 and 8 weeks for the integration with the bone. After this period, veneers, crowns and bridges, if any, will be made. It is normal for patients to have swelling after surgery. When prescribed painkillers are used, minor pains related to the operation can also be controlled and a comfortable process can be experienced.
