Surgical placement of dental implants on toothless area after the relevant area or areas are anesthetized. The area of the procedure is made numb so that the implant can be inserted into the bone without pain. However, in some cases it is also possible to carry out the surgical procedure with general anesthesia.

The surgeon in person observes the hard-tissue area where the dental implant will be placed and carries out the surgical procedure. During the dental implant surgery, your oral surgeon makes a cut to open your gum and expose the bone. Holes are drilled into the bone, where the dental implant metal post will be placed. Since the post will serve as the tooth root, it is implanted deep into the bone. When the procedure is finished, the lacerated area is closed by suturing. In some cases when there is not enough jawbone to support an implant, bone grafting or sinus lift may be needed before or during the surgery.

Also known as ‘the without surgery method’. In this method, the dental tomographic image and in-mouth measurements of the patient are taken, and then, used to prepare a surgical guide of the area where the implant will be placed. This guide helps the surgeon to place the dental implant without cutting and removing the gums. This method does not require suturing because there are no scalpel-cut tooth areas.


Guided surgery method is more comfortable for patients. It shortens the surgery time. There is less bleeding and pain after surgery and no cutting or stitches at surgery. It offers a shorter recovery time for the patient.

 

In many cases, it is possible to place a dental implant into the socket of the removed tooth right after the extraction. This method is similar to the closed (guided) surgery method in that it does not involve any flaps or surgical cuts. On the other hand, it is also similar to the open surgery method since it enables the surgeon to visually observe the bone area where the dental implant will be placed. This method usually does not require suturing. It is quite an advantageous method as it shortens the time required for the procedure and that it does not require a second operation. After the dental implant surgery, a temporary crown or a temporary denture is often put into the toothless area of the patient. Yet, the use of temporary dentures is not a requirement for all cases.

Patient may need bone grafting before or during implant surgery if the jawbone is not thick enough or the quality of the bone is not good enough. That’s because the action of your mouth exerts great pressure on your bone, and if the jaw bone can not support the implant, the implant would probably fail. Thus, bone grafting can create a more solid environment for the implant.

In bone grafting, a piece of bone is removed from another part of your jaw or your body — your hip, for example — and transplanted to your jawbone. Another option is to use artificial bone (commercially available bone) to place in these areas. It may take several months for the transplanted bone to grow enough to support a dental implant. Quality of bone graft is very important for success of the surgery. We apply internationally well-known certified grafts in our clinic.

The upper back jaws are one of the most difficult areas to  place dental implants due to insufficient bone quantity and quality and the close proximity to the sinus of the patient. If a patient has lost significant amount of bone in the area of upper back jaw due to reasons such as periodontal disease or tooth loss, sinus lifting might be necessary before the implant surgery. Sinus lifting operation can solve this problem by raising the sinus floor and applying bone for the placement of dental implants.

There are two different techniques for sinus lifting: open sinus lifting and closed sinus lifting. Which method to use will be chosen according to the amount of the related bone deficiency. Dentist will decide the method after examining patient’s X-ray and/or Tomography. It may be possible to place implants simultaneously at the same session, but in some cases, sinus lifting has to be done primarily and the graft is left to heal for several months before the implant procedure.

Osseointegration of implant with the bone is checked via X-rays.

Small holes are opened on the gum to screw gum shaper.

Impression of implants are taken for the custom abutment preparation.

Abutments are placed and impression of mouth is taken to prepare infrastructure of your prosthesis.

Preparation of metal or zirconium structure in the laboratory.

Control of the infrastructure, impression taken for porcelain teeth.

Preparation of the crowns.

Control of the crowns.

Usage of teeth with temporary glue to test the convenience.

Last session to apply the final glue.  

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of suitable materials and is used to replace the lost teeth for treatment purposes. Together with the bone tissue, the dental implant comes to function as a natural tooth in time.

Dental implants can be used in cases of missing single or multiple teeth and edentetion.


Is there any pain during implant treatment

We guarantee you 99% there will not be any pain during implant treatment. There were a lot of patients of us who were afraid of even small dental treatments who had implant treatments. They all the time say to us they are very disappointed to not begin that treatment before. There was no pain! A lot of patients even did not understand when implant had been inserted to their jaw. We are also using state of art electronic injections which cause no pain during anesthesia. There will be no pain during surgery!

You would feel pain after surgery for few days. But that is so normal. You had a surgery and your tissue and nerves have been effected from that. But that is temporary and  suggested pain killers will make you relieved.
