Dental implants have a really long service life, regardless of the type. Since the process uses titanium root, it does not wear out or disappear. In fact, part of the treatment for dental implants is to fuse the jawbone with implants. That is, in other words, the root becomes part of Gabon, which gives it a lifelong foothold. But if it is for crowns or dentures that you use together with dental implants, it is a matter of care. On average, dental implants can remain intact for more than 15 years.

Patients who have lost part of their teeth get rid of the ugly image created by the hooks (hooks) to be used in moving prostheses that will be made, and a more aesthetic and functional result is obtained.
Apart from some health problems, implants can be done in cases such as single tooth loss, multiple teeth, and lack of all teeth (total toothlessness). In order for the implant to be applied in a healthy way, first of all, radiological and clinical examinations are performed in the area where the implant will be applied. By examining the bone density in the region and the condition of neighboring anatomical regions, it is decided whether implant construction is appropriate.
Other than regional eligibility; other conditions affecting implant construction include;
In patients with excessive cigarette consumption, the implant;
Smoking can adversely affect the bone integration of the implant due to carbon monoxide and toxic effects. It also has negative effects such as delaying wound healing and reducing blood supply. In this case, if your doctor approves, an implant can be made by reducing smoking before and after the implant.
Note: It is especially recommended that implant patients who smoke stop smoking 15 days before treatment and 1 month after treatment.
Implants for diabetics;
Implant construction may be risky in diabetic patients who are not under control. Although tissue healing is slow in diabetics, the risk of infection increases. An implant can be performed in patients whose blood sugar levels are under control.After the implant treatment is completed, it is very important to ensure oral hygiene for diabetics. Diabetes patients should not disrupt periodic dental checkups.
Implants in patients with heart disease;

Implantation in patients with blood clotting disorders;
Implant surgery is a risky procedure in patients with blood clotting disease. The necessary doctor’s consultations should be carried out.
Implant treatment is performed under local anesthesia, such as in dentistry treatments such as filling, root canal treatment, tooth extraction, or sedation (drowsiness) at the request of the patient. Patients do not feel any pain during treatment. After the implant application, the planned implant porcelain, movable prostheses are completed according to the patient and physician’s liking after several sessions of measurement procedures.
