There are a couple of ways to fill the gap between your teeth.
There are dentures that most people use: it is cheap but uncomfortable to use.
Most common thing is using a bridge to fix the issue but the bone density will fade gradually.
The best solution is implants but you will most likely need 2 visits, bone graft, sinus lift, membranes, etc.
A new method is being used with the help of Digital Dentistry to make this process much easier for the patient.
As a DentaFLY team, we brought our 25 years of dentistry experience to Antalya. We provide our services in our clinic in Barınaklar, Antalya with our cutting edge equipment and certified implant dentists.
How different is it compared to normal implants?
The surgeon drills into the patient’s bone and places the implant in the patient’s jawbone. The healing period is around 3-6 months depending on the density of the bone.
The process of Subperiosteal Dental Implant
The surgeon will drill just below the gum tissue for the metal frame to be put. After the metal frame is placed, the surgeon will stitch the gum of the patient and let it heal. Subperiosteal dental implants have much faster recovery time. After it is healed, the posts are installed to the implant. After the posts are installed, temporary teeth are used to let the gums heal. After the gums are healed, the permanent teeth that match the rest of the teeth can be cemented on.
Why should you choose a Subperiosteal Dental Implant?
It is less time consuming to complete the procedure. It is much easier for the patient as well. It is a better option than getting dentures. With dentures, there is nothing to stop the bone losing and eventually this will prevent getting dental implants. Subperiosteal dental implant will be a lasting treatment that is not uncomfortable like using dentures.
How to take good care of Subperiosteal Dental Implants after the operation?
It is important not to smoke (cigarettes, vape, etc) is important for the safety of the implant.
Some patients might experience a little swelling and/or pain after the operation. It is important not to forget that this is only temporary. It will gradually decrease within one week.
Eating soft foods to not to put more pressure on the implant and the posts is important. This will only take 1-2 weeks as well.
