The dental implant treatment consists of several steps. Initially, a comprehensive assessment of oral health and jaw structure is conducted by the dentist to determine the suitability of the implant. The first examination assesses whether the individual is suitable for treatment, how long the treatment might take, and the potential cost. Tests may be conducted by the dentist to determine the person’s health suitability for treatment, and overall health tests may be requested. It is essential for the individual to provide the dentist with accurate details about their medical history at this stage.
Once the individual’s general health is determined to be suitable, a thorough examination of the mouth and jaw structure is conducted. After determining the person’s suitability for surgery, the operation is planned.
Local anesthesia is applied during the surgical procedure, and if there are broken or decayed teeth, they are extracted. Depending on the conditions of the resulting gap, the next operation is decided. A socket is created in the jawbone on the same day or, depending on the situation, after some time, and the implant screw is placed. The process of the implant screw adapting to the jawbone can take several months, during which the implants are expected to fuse with the bone.
After healing and fusion are complete, an abutment is attached to the top of the implant. The treatment is completed by attaching a prosthetic tooth to the abutment.
