Dental Implants Procedure in Turkey
Your dentist decides your treatment plan after several x-rays. It is generally applied with local anesthesia. In some special cases, general anesthesia may be needed. To start, the dentist cuts and lifts the gum where the implant will be located. Then he drills a small hole and a titanium tooth root is bonded to the jaw bone. After that, there is a need for a healing period between 6 weeks to 6 months for the integration of the root to the jaw. During this process, the dentist gives you a temporary tooth. After the healing period, a permanent tooth will be placed in the root. As a result, your implant will look as natural as your original tooth
