What Does a Dental Implants Procedure Involve in Turkey ?
There are three stages in the dental implants process:
- Fitting the implant
- Fitting the abutment
- Attaching the crown
The fitting of the implant is usually performed under a local anaesthetic. Your dentist will make a small incision into your gum, then painlessly insert the implant into your jawbone.
If you’ve had any teeth extracted prior to the surgery, it may be possible for your dentist to fit the implant directly into the existing tooth socket. However, before having the abutment attached, patients generally need to allow around three to six months for the bone to fully adhere to the implant – a process called osseointegration.
The abutment – a small post onto which a crown can be fitted – screws directly into the dental implant that was inserted into your jawbone.
Once the abutment is in place, attaching the crown is a straightforward process, usually carried out during the abutment fitting.
