How to Make an Implant
How is Implant Made? People who have problems with their teeth but do not prefer traditional solutions such as dentures and cannot make a decision, wonder how the implant procedure is done. First of all, the patient should know that implant treatment is a form of treatment in which methods that vary from person to person are used.
The patient’s bone and facial structure, bone density and amount determine the type of oral health implant and the way it is applied. A personalized treatment plan is followed for each patient.
Implant is a material made of titanium in the form of a screw, which is placed in the jawbone and suitable for root anatomy. It is designed to act as a tooth root. A tooth-shaped crown is placed on this screw-shaped implant as a prosthesis. This crown is also usually made of zirconium or metal-supported porcelain.

How is a dental implant done?
Although getting dental implants seems like a procedure that frightens our patients in general, patients do not feel any pain in experienced hands. Implant applications are made in 4 different techniques, and your doctor chooses which technique is more suitable for you.
1. Method : The dental implant is removed in the same session where it will be placed, and the implant is immediately placed on the root of the tooth, this is the most comfortable and practical method for both the patient and the doctor. No stitches, no incisions, no surgical intervention is required. It almost never hurts, the patient may return to his social life without even using painkillers, and if the extracted tooth is in an aesthetic area, a temporary tooth is placed on it.
2. Method : In this method, which is the closed technique method we call flapness, there is no incision, no incision (flap) and naturally there is no stitching again. The area to be implanted is made with a tool called punch, only a groove is made for the implant to be placed and the implant is placed from that area. Thus, we avoid complications such as stitches, bleeding and pain that may be caused by the surgical operation.
3. Method : Mini Implant application, a method we apply especially for posterior teeth, there are some anatomical regions in the upper jaw or lower jaw, the sinus region in the upper jaw, the mandibular canal in the lower jaw, and the region in which the lingual nerve passes, when the tooth is removed in these regions, the bone begins to melt. For this, the height of the bone decreases and it is necessary to add bone with advanced surgical methods. We can use mini Implants in order not to apply this advanced surgical method.
4. Method : Classical surgical method, in this method, an appropriate incision is made in the patient’s mouth in the area where the implant will be made, the bone is well seen and the implant is placed here and sutured. After 1 week, the stitches are removed. In this method, if the bone density is low while placing the implant, the bone grafting operation, which we call bone graft, is also applied together with the implant.
How to Put a Prosthesis on the Implant?
How is the prosthesis attached to the implant? Since the implant replaces the root of the tooth and must fuse with the bone, a permanent denture is not placed on it immediately. Depending on the preferred method and the age of the person, it is expected that the implant will be well fused to the bone for 3 to 6 months. The permanent prosthesis (the part known as the denture) is only fitted after this period. The success rate for implants is between 90 and 95% for the first five years. Then this rate gradually decreases.
Patients with loose-shaking and unsightly teeth, who neglected to be treated on time, benefit most from this treatment. These patients not only get rid of cavities and bacteria in their mouths after the treatment, but also have a high self-confidence as a natural result of their new attractive smile.
Other patients who are suitable for treatment are those who have difficulty in using palatal prostheses, those who have osteoporosis due to dental diseases, those who are genetically missing a tooth, and those who have lost a tooth after an accident.
How is a Dental Implant Applied?
How is a dental implant applied?; Implant and prosthetic dentistry Prof. Dr. Ömer Kutay answers frequently asked questions. Successful dentist explains how to apply the implant.
Dental implants can be applied with a very simple surgical procedure. Whether the tooth is extracted immediately or to be used to replace a previously extracted tooth, the dental implant is placed in the jawbone with a simple procedure performed in a tooth extraction.
Let’s say we’ve extracted a tooth, and we’re going to place an implant in the extracted place. As soon as the tooth is extracted, the implant can be easily placed in the tooth cavity. Because the slot where the implant will be placed is ready. It doesn’t matter if it’s a front tooth or a back tooth. Implant
