I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.

My experience with bookimad was great; the thing that I appreciate is the high sense of humanity of the staff, especially Dr Farruk Ahmed. He answer all my questions in time, he read my poor English and make me feel comfortable, such thing is so important for someone that suffer. I know they do their best to help. Thank you Dr.

Thanks to Bookimed site consultant Julia for her attentive attitude, help in organizing a trip to this wonderful dental clinic in Istanbul. I installed Korean implants and sinus lifting. It was very budget friendly. I was satisfied with the professional work of the doctor Taha, the well-coordinated work of the team. This includes delivery to the clinic and goodwill, and the work of Dinara's interpreter, Melika's consultant. I will definitely come to install crowns. I will recommend to my friends. Спасибо консультанту площадки Bookimed Юлии за внимательное отношение, помощь в организации поездки в эту замечательную стоматологическую клинику Стамбула. Я устанавливала корейские импланты и синус лифтинг. Это было очень бюджетно. Осталась довольна профессиональной работой врача Taha, слаженной работой коллектива. Это и доставка до клиники и доброжелательность, и
работа переводчика Динары, консультанта Мелики. Приеду обязательно устанавливать коронки. Буду рекомендовать своим знакомым.

Verified review. The patient underwent dental implant in Hair Clinic

I can say that I liked it, although I didn’t finally decide whether I would be treated with them. The only thing that confuses the doctor was young, but I don’t know how much this depends on experience. Могу сказать что понравилось, хотя окончательно не решила буду ли у них лечиться.Единственное что смущает врач был молодым, но не знаю насколько зависит это от опыта.

Verified review. The patient underwent dental implant in Dentisland Oral and Dental Center

Dentistland almost killed me. I received two implants with bone graph. They lied and did not do the bone graph so the bone was too thin and on the upper implant they punctured my sinus and caused excruciating pain and needed secondary surgery. They also dislocated my jaw during the extraction. The second lower implant simply fell out WITH THE LONG SCREW that goes DOWN into the bone and everything.AND THEY DID NOT HONOR THEIR “warranty for lfe” I am in the process of beginning to sue them now. STAY AWAY!!!!

Verified review. The patient underwent dental implant in LIV Hospital

Thanks for the help, I have already left Istanbul. I completed the first stage, the second will be in half a year. My husband and I had prosthetics, the husband, in principle, was satisfied, he had no complaints, but he had a simple case. I can’t say for myself unambiguously, I know for sure, if it were possible to return, I would not go to this clinic and would not recommend it. I generally want to do an independent check. My complaints are solely about prosthetics, the operation did seem to be good. Thanks again. Спасибо за помощь, я уже покинула Стамбул. Мне закончили первый этап, второй будет через пол года. Мы с мужем протезировали зубы, муж в принципе доволен, у него претензий нет, но у него был простой случай. Про себя я не могу сказать однозначно, знаю точно, если бы можно было вернуть, я бы в эту клинику не поехала и рекомендовать не стала. Я вообще хочу сделать независимую проверку. Мои претензии исключительно к протезированию, операцию сделали вроде хорошо. Спасибо, ещё раз.

So I’m just leaving Turkey after having 18 veneers done at Dentaglobal. I’m over the moon with the results especially at such a good price compared to back home.! The chief dentist did mine and I felt in very safe hands and had a lot of trust that he wouldn’t disappoint and I can honestly say he did better than I thought was possible. Thanks again Dentaglobal xx

Medicover MDental Clinic

Je suis une amie de Solange TAIEB et Meyer BENHARROUS qui a fait 2 implants dans cette clinique et je poste cet avis suite à la réponse apportée à Solange TAIEB. Je confirme que mon ami Meyer a fait 4 séjours dans votre clinique et s''est fait accompagner 2 fois par Solange sa compagne. Il a de gros problèmes depuis le début avec ses implants. 1 couronne a été déposée et le 2ème est très instable. De plus il a très mal à 1 implant et ne souhaite plus être examiné par cette clinique dont il n 'a vraiment plus aucune confiance. Il n'a jamais eu de forte mastication puisqu'il n'a jamais pu manger avec ses implants. Donc comment la clinique a pu voir sur une radio panoramique, qu'il a une forte mastication ??? D'autant plus que mon ami n'a pas fait de radio panoramique dans cette clinique depuis longtemps !!!Il n'y a rien qui puisse expliquer les problèmes qu'il a rencontrés avec ses 2 implants depuis le début. Peut être qu'il n'a pas eu de chance !!! En tout cas, ne prenez pas de risques et évitez cette clinique autant que possible.

Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

Hi, ich hatte eine Bruststraffung mit Implantaten und möchte meine Erfahrungen gerne teilen. Ich wurde vom Flughafen abgeholt und ins Hotel gefahren, was super geklappt hat!Da ich erst am nächsten Tag den Op Termin hatte, habe ich die erste Nacht im Hotel geschlafen und wurde dann morgens von meiner Dolmetscherin Nevin abgeholt und in die Klinik gebracht die wirklich nur zwei Minuten zu Fuß entfernt war! Dort angekommen wartete mein Op Arzt Dr. Ergin Er schon auf mich um die Op endgültig nach meinen Wünschen vorzuplanen ich fühlt mich sehr gut aufgehoben! Seine Art beruhigt einen also mich hat sie beruhigt. Alles abgesprochen ging es weiter zur Blutabnahme die Ärztin für die Narkose stellte mir einige Fragen ob ich Medikamente nehme oder an Krankheiten leite etc. halbe Stunde später war ich schon in der Op. 3 Stunden war ich in Narkose die üblichen Dinge die sich kaum vermeiden lassen zb Übelkeit oder schmerzen nach der Narkose sind auch mir passiert aber dem sollte man sich im Klaren sein wenn man plant eine Operation zu machen! Genauso wie man nicht kalt kochen kann kann man auch schmerzen nach einer Operation nicht vermeiden, lindern durch schmerztabletten. Man bekommt Antibiotika und Schmerzmittel. Ein Tag später konnte ich im Hotel schon schlafen und zwei Tage später wurden die drainagen gezogen (unangenehm aber auszuhalten, müssen sowieso raus). Das Hotel sehr schön sauber riecht so lecker irgendwie und die Hotelfachangestellten super nett und zuvorkommend. Sie wissen das man eine Operation hatte und sind sehr hilfsbereit. Essen top! Man geht dann ab und zu so wie es der Dr. veranlasst zu Kontrolle ansonsten you need to rest und am letzten (7.) Tag geht man zum verbandwechsel und wird dann zum Flughafen von den zuständigen gestellten Taxen gebracht auch nette Leute sehr hilfsbereit! Ich habe nichts negatives zu sagen weil nichts vorgefallen ist was mich verärgert oder enttäuscht hat! Wer sich hier behandeln lassen möchte macht alles richtig 👍 ich bin sehr zufrieden und froh das ich durch bin 😁 An die Raucher man soll nicht rauchen ja, aber wer raucht sollte sich vorher um Zigaretten kümmern es gibt keine Automaten oder Zigaretten zu kaufen in der Nähe! Ciao 👋

FAQ about Dental Implant

What is Dental Implantation?

Teeth implantation is a type of dental prosthetics when doctors completely restore a missing tooth or teeth. Both roots and dental crowns are restored. Dental implantation is especially useful for adentia (tooth loss) treatment.

Our self-assurance relies heavily on physical characteristics. The feeling of missing something may be irritating and disagreeable, notably when it refers to a part of your body like teeth. Dental implants might be our allies if you lost one or more teeth by reason of injury or ageing, and have a yearning to tackle this problem.

People worldwide constantly apply for the medical service to install dental implants, and their number counts to 300,000 per year.

Dental implant surgery is the most preferable procedure for thousands of people who want to enhance their appearance and chewing ability to benefit from life in its entirety. A gorgeous and healthful smile is something you will get after the decision to get dental implants.

This article answers on the most popular topics about dental implants — their types, stages, duration of dental implant surgery, recovery time, and more.

What Are Top-picked Dental Implants Types? Brief Overview

Dental implants are the long-term solution to substitute your broken teeth with the new ones by placing artificial tooth roots. This oral procedure has a high success rate of approximately 98%. If you lost a tooth due to trauma or deep tooth decay, it is the key to bringing back the original look of your smile.

Before the decision to place a dental implant, learn more about its classification and find the best option suited for you. Modern surgical dentistry does not stay still, so now you have choice to pick the best among top 3 dental implant types offered:

  • Endosteal implants. It is the most sought-after implant option for patients due to its safety and effectiveness. An endosteal implant serves as an artificial root to carry a replacement tooth. This type of procedure requires a healthy jawbone to fuse the post with it. It begins with the insertion of titanium screws also called orthopedic implants into the jawbone, replacing the natural root with artificial ones. The healing process of soft tissues and bones can take a couple of months before placing the artificial teeth. Despite it, this type of procedure gives the most natural looking result and an excellent functionality.
  • Subperiosteal implants. This type of dental implant surgery may be an excellent alternative to the endosteal method. This implant is fixed under the gum into the bone’s top. The metal construction is placed under the gum, which heals and then holds the frame. This type of procedure is used when a patient has not enough jawbone or doubts about providing intensive dental implant surgery. It has a shorter treatment period but less level of stability due to the implant placement: not in the jawbone but at the top of the bone. That’s why you should ask the dentist whether this type fits you.
  • Zygomatic implants. This method of dental implant surgery is rarely used due to its complexity. It requires the placement of the implant into the cheekbone if the patient has not enough bone tissue in the upper jaw. It would be best if you discussed all questions with a dental specialist, who will explain all pros and cons of this method and may suggest a different way to manage your situation.

These methods are the most commonly practised in dental medicine. Dental implants are the best alternative to dental bridges and dentures for a lot of reasons. Below you can find the answer to why you should prefer dental implants. However each case is individual, and only after a thorough dental survey is possible to pick out appropriate solutions for your case.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

Dental implants bring benefits that dental bridges or dentures cannot offer. It is the lifetime option, with a need to replace only the crown in approximately 15 years or more (for instance, its alternatives must be replaced every 5-7 years). However, the primary implant benefit is that they act like natural teeth. Properly installed implant units feel and look the same like healthy teeth.

What’s more, dental implants have some more extra benefits. Explore them below:

  • Better speech abilities. Alternatives to dental implants mentioned above can affect your pronunciation due to sliding. But it does not relate to implants themself. Dental implants have the same functionality and feel like natural teeth, which enhance the ability to speak correctly without missounds.
  • Better eating ability. Since a dental implant is placed directly into the jawbone with the post, you can bite your favourite food with the same force as natural teeth. Other options will not give you the same result and can cause difficulties during chewing.
  • No sliding. Artificial teeth (like dentures) may cause speaking, eating, and self-esteem problems. It may be shifting or slipping, making you uncomfortable. Dental implants are firmly fixed and will not let you down when you are in public.
  • No change to face shape. Teeth naturally help to support our face structure. And when we have a missing tooth, we lose the component, which minimizes the facial shape changes. Dental implants become your supporter in all ways, even for your face contour.
  • No bone loss. Dental implants are the only option that both replaces the natural tooth and root with artificial ones plus fixes the issue of bone deterioration

Thus, dental implants are the most effective solution to manage issues of damaged or missing teeth compared to other options available on the dental market.

Who Performs Dental Implants?

If your gum tissue and bone are healthy, and you have no periodontal disease or chronic disorders such as diabetes or heart issues, you are a good candidate for dental implant surgery.

But who is eligible to perform such a procedure? There is no classification for covering only dental implants. Dental specialists can provide such services based on their experience and knowledge. Two hundred two thousand practising dentists in the USA are members of dental associations and can perform the oral implant procedure.

In case you have a bite or cosmetic challenge or miss multiple teeth, you need to seek the services of an oral surgeon and periodontist with solid qualifications. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the most reliable specialists for placing dental implants due to their specialization. Periodontists manage teeth structure support and may be essential or optional to help the dentist in implant surgery performance. These professionals must prepare a customized treatment plan according to your needs.

How Do Specialists Implant the Teeth?

  1. During the first visit, a dentist assesses the condition of the patient's gums, jawbone, remaining teeth and develops a treatment plan. Therefore, it is necessary to take a panoramic x-ray that shows all dental issues. If there are ambiguities, the doctor may recommend a jaw study on a CT scan.
  1. Dentists fix the dental implant, like the natural root, in the bone.
  1. The patient is under local anesthesia. The specialist makes an incision in the gum where the tooth is missed to expose the bone.
  1. The dentist makes a hole in the bone with a special sterile drill. After that, the doctor screws and fixes the artificial root in the bone and suturing the incision.
  1. A week after the procedure, the patient undergoes the examination. The dentist removes the stitches.
  1. Depending on the initial state of the bone, in 3-6 months after the tooth implantation, the expert creates a dental crown of individual shape and color.
  1. The tooth can be attached to the implant with a special cement or screw. Screw fixation is most often used so that, if necessary, the prosthesis can be easily removed and repaired.

See the whole process in the video.

Who Needs Dental Implants?

Teeth implantation is the most effective option for people with:

  • one or more teeth loss
  • the several teeth in a row absence
  • no extreme teeth in the row
  • complete adentia (when all teeth are missing).

For some people, dental implants are the most comfortable way to restore lost teeth; for others — this way is the only one possible. Conventional dentures and bridges are not suitable for those who suffer from diseases of the oral mucosa, have weak alveolar processes, and suffer from nausea while wearing conventional prostheses.

How Do Dental Implants Look Like?

A dental implant is the most natural way to restore absent teeth. Before the implant process, you must consult your dentist and ask all questions to allay all fears and doubts. A dental implant consists of three components:

  • The implant base (screw). It is made of titanium or other materials compatible with the body and has a natural look. These materials comply with the international standards of the field’s leading organizations, such as the International Organization for Standardization. The screw is used to fuse with the jawbone (surgical site) and to provide a strong base for the implant.
  • The abutment (connector). It usually has the shape of an octagon or hexagon and is used to fix the crown of the implant.
  • The implant crownIt is placed on the top and is usually made of ceramic material. The dentist will choose the size and color of the crown to match your existing teeth. As a result, you will have solid false teeth that feel and look like natural ones.

What Are the Results after the Procedure?

In 95-97% of cases, the dental implant is accepted. However, implant rejection is the most significant risk. Rejection may happen because of:

  • systemic diseases (AIDS, HIV, diabetes, hypertension)
  • installation of low-quality implants
  • non-compliance with doctor's recommendations after implantation (excessive load of the implant, poor oral hygiene, smoking)
  • medical error.

Throughout the entire period of implant engraftment, the patient should regularly visit a dentist.

How Long Is the Dental Implant Recovery Process?

An average period of recovery after teeth implantation procedure lasts about 1-2 months. However, that depends on each patient’s case. In general, the duration of recovery depends on:

  • number of implants installed
  • sinus lifting performing
  • bone grafting conducting.

What Are the Complications after the Dental Implant?

During the first days after the procedure, the following complications can occur:

  • implant rejection
  • pain
  • swelling
  • bleeding.

To avoid severe complications after the procedure, follow the doctor’s recommendations. Eat soft food, do not smoke or drink alcohol. Get painkillers if the pain is unbearable. In several days the discomfort will go away.

What Is a Dental Implant Procedure?

A dental implant operation is a type of restorative dentistry surgical procedure to replace one or several teeth. It consists of different stages, including root canal treatment, implant site preparation, bone augmentation in case of bone loss, implant crown placement, and a few others to substitute real teeth.

The procedure is suitable for patients with healthy jaw bone and gum and with no conditions affecting healing. It involves artificial tooth roots being placed into the jawbone. A dental implant procedure seems costly, but in some cases, it can be partially covered by dental insurance. You should contact your insurance carrier to learn all the details of your policy — does it spread on dental operations, and how can you get the repayment. If you are looking for more affordable offers, please, contact the Bookimed team. We will find the most suitable options in the shortest period.

What Are the Stages of Dental Implant Surgery?

Once you decide you need dental implants to improve your health and appearance, having known the types and looks of implants, you should learn more about each step you must take on this journey. Here are five stages of dental implant surgery:

  1. The consultation. To gain the most efficient and desired result with dental implants, ones should follow a precise treatment plan. It is implemented during the first stage of the dental implant procedure while taking initial consultation with your dentist. The specialist will provide you with the full information on the treatment — durations, costs, and recommendations — according to your medical history and mouth CT scan.
  2. The preoperative examination. To avoid all risks related to surgical procedures, your dentist should provide a medical evaluation of your health conditions. Skipping this step may lead to infection, improper healing, or failure in dental treatment.
  3. The dental implant procedure. Before dental implant placement, the dentist will examine your jawbone. If it is necessary (it’s too soft or not enough), you must take one more step prior to the implant procedure — bone grafting. A bone graft is a solution to repair damaged bones or replace missing ones used as a part of dental implant procedures. During this stage, the specialist will cut the gum and drill the bone to place the post (metal implant). The dentist will place a temporary crown or crowns to heal the mouth after the procedure. It is usually done under general or local anesthesia, depending on the number of replacement teeth.
  4. The operation follow-up. You must follow some prescriptions and recommendations for up to 6 months to prepare your mouth for permanent teeth implants. It is necessary to visit your dentist regularly and make checkups to follow the process of healing.
  5. The permanent teeth placement. The last and the happiest part of the dental implant procedure is the moment you come to your dentist to fit your permanent crowns. It will replace temporary ones, allowing you to smile to the fullest.

How Long Does a Dental Implant Process Take?

All these stages take your patience and time. The dentist defines the duration of each dental implant step, and on average, it is as the following:

  • 1-1,5 hours for the consultation;
  • 15-30 minutes for the tooth extraction (if needed), and 0-3 months for the extraction healing;
  • up to 4 months to heal after the bone grafting;
  • 1-3 hours for the implant dentistry;
  • 3-6 months for the healing period;
  • one hour for the permanent crown placement.

It is the approximate duration of each step, and your dental team may define the final period based on your case. You can get all answers on the procedure’s terms during the first consultation.

How Long Is Recovery after Dental Implants?

Swelling, pain issues, or minor bleeding are the common parts of the healing process after the dental implant procedure. Each case differs, and it is not easy to guess how long it will last. The time of recovery may vary depending on the number of teeth to be extracted or implanted, the location of implants (upper or lower jawbone), the need for bone grafting, and even your hygiene habits. But on average, the complete recovery is over in 4-6 months. It is a term enough to make a dental implant be well-fixated in the bone.

There are some tips to minimize the recovery period and support your body in this time. For example, you can place ice packs to reduce pain, rinse the mouth with salted water, and eat soft and cold foods. You must also avoid smoking tobacco and drinking beverages or alcohol for several days to save the root canals from infection.

Is a Tooth Implant a Painful Procedure?

Generally, the dental implant procedure is divided into two phases: surgery itself and recovery. The first one is not painful, as the dentist will use a general or local anesthetic or some sedatives to numb the mouth for the whole operation. All the processes — incision, drilling, and installation of an implant — will not cause discomfort.

You may feel some pain just after the surgery and during the recovery period. But in most cases, it lasts only for a few days. You can manage this by taking some pain medications and following the dentist’s instructions on teeth care.

How to Care for Dental Implants?

Dental implants have many benefits, including improving your chewing ability and smile. Since you get the procedure, you should be aware of the proper care of your new teeth. There are some bits of pieces of advice on how to look after dental implants:

  • clean it twice a day with a soft toothbrush and low-abrasive toothpaste;
  • floss every day;
  • avoid hard food like caramel or fried fruits in order not to damage the implant;
  • visit the dental office regularly to make sure everything is in its place.

Can Dental Implants Be Done in One Day?

Despite the ordinary dental implant procedure taking time, there is an option of same-day implants, which must be discussed with your dentist. If you have appropriate health conditions, the oral specialist may place the implants, connectors, and crowns just during one visit. It involves applying the latest dental techniques and strict planning to successfully integrate implants into the jawbone.

This method is optional since it has a high risk of complication and is less smooth for body adaptation.

Are Dental Implants a Major Surgery?

A dental implant is considered a minor surgery since it does not need a lot of invasive procedures to be done. It is a common oral surgery for restoring lost teeth, similar to tooth extraction. As mentioned above, in some cases, the dental implant requires additional procedures — bone grafting or sinus lift to provide more bone for implant support.
