It is an artificial tooth root which is made of titanium and can be made prosthesis with various materials on the jaw bone in order to reinstate the chewing function and aesthetics in tooth deficiencies. In case of single tooth or multiple tooth deficiencies, implant can be performed to everyone if there is bone suitable for implant placement. It can be performed to elderly patients whose health status is suitable, but not to patients with incomplete bone development.
Only the area where the implant will be made is anesthetized with local anesthesia so that the patient does not feel anything and the implant is placed into the bone within 10 minutes. The drugs to be used after the procedure and the rules to be performed are explained to the patient and the patient is sent to home. After 3, 4 or 6 months, the patient is called for the prosthesis and the implant prosthesis is completed within 1 or 2 weeks.
The implant is particularly preferred for single tooth deficiencies, both because of the presence of bone and as a more protective treatment than banding. It allows the patient to use fixed denture instead of removable denture in case of multiple tooth deficiencies or complete toothlessness.
If the bone in the area to be implanted is insufficient, the bone can be made suitable for implant implantation with the graft materials taken from the patient or taken from the outside before or during implant procedure.

It is an implant technique performed in cases of complete toothlessness. It is performed to patients who do not want to use a removable prosthesis and do not have the bone that ensure to make a standard fixed prosthesis. 4 implants placed at a single jaw bone at certain angles and a temporary fixed prosthesis on the same day are the first stage of the treatment. After waiting 3 months, permanent fixed prosthesis is performed. It is performed with local anesthesia like standard implant procedure and the patient does not feel any pain during the procedure. Although it is a newer treatment compared to other implant procedures, it has been found to have a high success rate in long-term follow-up in scientific studies.
