What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are artificial dental roots produced from highly biocompatible titanium material that provides the function and aesthetics of these teeth by placing them in the jaw bone in the region where there are missing teeth in the mouth. Titanium can combine with bone without causing any allergic reaction and is a material that is highly resistant to chewing forces. Dental implants consist of titanium screws, abutments (prosthetic support) and prosthetic parts. The titanium screw piece remains inside the jawbone and acts as the best alternative to natural dental roots by taking the role of the dental root. The prosthetic support, called the abutment, is connected to the titanium screw in the bone, allowing restoration and titanium screw to merge. Implant treatment can be safely applied in single tooth deficiencies, multiple tooth deficiencies and total tooth deficiencies where there is not a single tooth in the mouth. Thanks to the implants, it is possible to provide function and aesthetics without damaging the natural teeth in the mouth.
