An implant is a titanium cylinder that is placed in the jawbone to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth or teeth. Implant treatment can be done for a single tooth, or it can be used to support more than one tooth or a prosthesis. Thanks to implants, which offer a second chance to individuals who have lost their teeth, individuals have both their health and an aesthetic and beautiful smile.

Patients using prostheses experience many difficulties, especially when eating. According to studies, 29% of patients using prostheses are fed only soft and crushed foods, while 50% stay away from many foods. 17% of the patients stated that they chew more effectively with their own teeth. 66% of the patients using total prosthesis said that they had difficulty in chewing. Along with the difficulties felt in chewing, some discomforts are also seen in the digestive system.

Implant treatment gives you the freedom to eat whatever you want whenever you want. At the same time, implants play an important role in preventing bone loss.

When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone tissue is also lost. Bone needs stimulants to maintain its density and form. Your jawbone is under constant pressure with the force exerted by the teeth. The tooth transmits the force exerted on it to the surrounding bone.

As a result of the loss of the tooth and the lack of stimulants, bone loss, that is, “resorption”, occurs. Since the stimulating effect of the implant is similar to that applied by the tooth, only implants can prevent bone loss.
