After these procedures, which must be performed by experienced surgeons, 4-6 months are waited. After the bone matures, the patient is implanted.

What to do after Implant application?

Implants are applied in one or two stages. In the double stage, after the implant is placed, it is covered with a gum. After 1.5-2 months, after the bone has fused with the implant, a second procedure is performed under soft local anesthesia on the implant and metal parts called the healing head are placed on the implant. After waiting 1 week and 10 days, it is ready for the prosthesis stage. In a single stage, both the implant and the healing head to be placed on it later are placed at the same time. In this way, the patient is prepared for the prosthesis phase to be made after 1.5 months. Whether it is single or double stage is decided according to the quality of the bone, whether the implant can hold on to the bone well or not. If possible, the single-stage technique is preferred because the patient will not need a second surgery.
