Dental implants: what are they?
Dental implants are an excellent choice if you have missing teeth and want a permanent solution to your gaps.
They consist of a screw (usually made of titanium) that is fixed into your gum, acting as an artificial root. Over a period of time, the bone around it locks on to the screw, keeping it securely in place. You will be fitted with temporary crowns while this process is completed.
Then, any temporary fixtures are removed and a porcelain crown that resembles a natural-looking tooth is fitted on top of the screw, providing a very satisfactory solution.
It’s possible to have just one, several, or even a full mouth of dental implants, depending on your needs. If you have a number of teeth in a row missing, it can be possible to fit an implant bridge rather than one implant per tooth, keeping costs down.
The advantages of dental implants
Not only do they look great, but there are many advantages to dental implants.
They are long-lasting
As look as you look after them by cleaning them thoroughly, flossing around the area and keeping up with your regular dental checks, they can last for 25 or more years.
They are fixed in place
Unlike dentures, they are fixed firmly in place and so you will never have to worry about losing them or them falling out.
They help preserve the bone in your jaw
If you have a missing tooth, the bone in the jaw in that area naturally shrinks away. When you plug the gap with an implant, the bone will grow around it, and so the bone is preserved.
They feel natural
Implants are just like natural teeth, and you can speak and eat as normal once your treatment is complete.
There is a high success rate
Most people who enquire about dental implants are suitable candidates and are treated successfully.
You will feel so much more confident
Imagine having the freedom to smile, laugh and express yourself without worrying about the appearance of your teeth.
Why not combine perfecting your smile with a holiday?
Combining cosmetic dentistry with a holiday can be a fun and memorable way to achieve the wonderful smile you’ve always deserved. For dental implants, Turkey can be a great destination not only for first class care, but a sun-drenched holiday, with great food, culture or even just a relaxing break thrown in.
