Examination and Evaluation: The first step is an evaluation of your oral structure and missing teeth by a dentist or dental implant specialist. X-rays and imaging are used to determine whether implant treatment is a suitable option.

Creating a Treatment Plan: Based on the results of the evaluation, a treatment plan is created. This plan includes details such as where the implants will be placed, the timing of the treatment process and how the prostheses will be placed.

Application Phase: Implants are placed in the jawbone. Seamless implants are less invasive than traditional implants. Therefore, there is no need to open the gum or use sutures. The implants are placed under the gum and given time to fuse where they are placed.

Healing Process: After the implants are placed, a healing process begins, which takes several months for them to fuse with the bone. During this process, the implants are permanently integrated into the jawbone.

Making and Fitting Dentures: Once the healing process is complete, custom-made dentures or bridges are fixed to the implants. These prostheses replace missing teeth and help the patient regain a natural smile.
