Dental Implant Treatment
A healthy set of teeth is such an important factor in day-to-day life and the overall health of your body. Having a beautiful smile affects your social and professional relationships as well as your self-confidence. One of the common dental problems is missing teeth or jawbone resorption. At Heva Clinic, we provide professional dental implant solutions for these types of dental problems in Turkey.
What are dental implants?
Dental implant is an excellent choice if the whole structure of the tooth needs to be replaced. It offers secure and long-term artificial teeth for patients suffering from missing teeth. The procedure involves an artificial root implantation into the jawbone to create support and a base for the replacement tooth. However, over time this term came to refer to the entire implant process.
Dental implants consist of three parts: artificial root, implant abutment, and prosthetic tooth or denture.
The artificial root is a screw-type structure that is made up of either titanium or ceramic which is implanted into the jawbone. Although various materials are available for artificial roots, titanium is the most commonly used option because of its bio-compatibility. Therefore, they provide a secure and non-invasive root for the artificial tooth.
Implant abutment is the connective structure between the implant and the prosthetic tooth. This piece supports and holds the denture and can only be removed by your dentist.
The prosthetic tooth is the visible part of dental implants. These teeth can be made up of different materials depending on your special condition and preferences. However, zirconium and porcelain are the most common options for this part. These materials offer a natural look as well as a long lifetime.
At Heva Clinic, we provide single implant, multiple implants, or full mouth implants. If you have lost just one tooth, a single implant is a great way to regain your perfect look. If you have lost more than one tooth, but the surrounding teeth and gum are still in healthy condition, you can choose to get multiple implants. In some cases, when resorption of the jawbone is involved or most of the upper or lower set of teeth is missing, full mouth implants might be necessary.
Full mouth dental implant packages
Full mouth dental implants involve the replacement of all upper or bottom teeth or both. This type of implants can be a good choice if you are currently wearing full dentures or have lost most of your teeth. Full mouth implants give you the confidence of secure, fully functioning, and natural-looking teeth. Packages include:
Full dental implants in Turkey commonly use two different methods to give you the best results. These methods are All on 4 implants and All on 6 implants below.
The naming refers to the number of implants used for fixing the prosthetic teeth set. For all on 4 method, 4 artificial roots are implanted into the jawbone and a full arch of teeth are placed on top of these roots. Titanium implants fuse with your jawbone in time and provide a strong and long-lasting set of teeth. You can recover your full beautiful smile after this teeth implant in Turkey at Heva Clinic.
The basic idea of all on 6 dental implants is the same with all on 4 dental implants. However, 6 artificial roots are implanted instead of 4. This method is used in the case of specific jaw structures or sensitivities.
Dental implant procedure
1. The first step to take for a dental implant is to book a free consultation to discuss about an individualised treatment plan with your dentist based on your needs.
2. The dental implant process starts with placing the titanium implant into the bone socket. This surgery takes around 1-2 hours.
3. Next, you will be waiting for the jawbone to heal and grow around the implant. This process typically takes 12 weeks.
4. Once your jawbone heals, the implant abutment is placed to prepare the implant for your new teeth. The prosthetic tooth is prepared by using a model of your bite.
5. Once your new tooth is ready, it is then attached to the implant abutment. Our experienced dental teams in Turkey provide a comfortable dental implant procedure.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
A good candidate for dental implants is required to have a healthy jawbone to anchor the implant and healthy gums for the success of the treatment. It is also important that you are over the age where your jawbone development stops. Keep in mind that you are willing to keep up with good oral hygiene after your treatment.
How long do dental implants take in Turkey?
If you are planning a trip to Turkey for your dental implant treatment, the length of the procedure is of course the most important thing you are wondering about. Dental implant procedure can take up to 3 months; however, you do not need to spend the whole time in Turkey. You will be spending most of this time waiting for your jawbone to heal after placing the implant.
For the first stage of your treatment, you need to spend 2-3 days in Turkey for your dentist to place the titanium implant into the bone socket. You can go back to your normal life during the healing period which takes 9-12 weeks. After this healing period, you need to pay a second visit to Turkey to get the implant abutment placed on the titanium implant. This second procedure in Turkey might also take 2-3 days. After that, your dental implant treatment in Turkey is over.
Overall, you will need to spend about 6 days in Turkey to finalise your dental implant procedure.

What are the advantages of dental implants?
There are various reasons for which you should choose dental implants:
One of the most important advantages of dental implants is their compatibility with the bone. Implants fuse with the bone cells and create a permanent base for your prosthetic teeth. Therefore, you will not experience any slipping, moving, or problems with your speech. They also provide ultimate comfort during eating since they function exactly like your natural teeth.
The natural look and functioning of dental implants gives you a beautiful smile and improve your self-esteem.
As dental implants do not interfere with your natural teeth and do not involve any alteration, they prevent further dental issues and provide better oral health.

Because your jawbone needs to heal and grow around the implant it might hurt for the first few weeks. The pain is usually manageable by taking painkillers.
