implantology

Dental implants placed in the jawbone act like a tooth root. Dental implants, which have the closest features to natural teeth, provide a more natural and aesthetic appearance by providing much more successful chewing and speaking functions than bridges and classical prostheses.

Successful results can be obtained when applied with sufficient knowledge, experience, equipment and correct diagnosis, and success can be maintained for many years when appropriate care is provided. In order to make an implant, the patient’s current bone condition and the status of the systemic disease are important. Generally, implants can be applied to most patients with advancing technologies today. In single tooth deficiencies, it is possible to complete the missing tooth without touching the adjacent healthy teeth, and it is possible to use fixed prostheses instead of removable dentures in multiple tooth deficiencies thanks to dental implants. In cases of complete edentulism, it is possible to fix removable prostheses, which are difficult to use especially in the lower jaw and tend to come out of the mouth constantly, by means of implants. Prosthesis planning over the implant varies according to the number of missing teeth and their location. The prosthesis to be made according to the planning is basically divided into two as removable by the patient (movable) or removable by the dentist (fixed). Both plans have advantages and disadvantages. You can plan the design that is suitable for you together with your physician.

 

Advantages of implant treatment:

– Since the implants will be located in your jawbone similar to the lost teeth, more aesthetic results are provided.

– Your teeth are protected as there is no need to cut adjacent teeth during the completion of missing teeth.

– With an aesthetic smile, a happier social life is achieved by regaining the self-confidence lost due to tooth loss.

– A healthier and more balanced diet is provided due to better chewing.

 

Smile Design

Your smile is one of the most important indicators that reflect the mood of the person and affect the mood. One of the most important factors when designing a smile is age. This design is an application that aims to achieve a beautiful smile with lips, teeth, aesthetically befitting the person. It is applied in a more practical way with changing technology and digital systems.

 

Golden Rules for the Perfect Smile?

In order to have a perfect aesthetic smile, the tooth structure and alignment should be smooth and there should be no overlap. The upper teeth should be highlighted and more prominent than the other teeth. Teeth should be sparkling and there should be no staining. Lip and gingiva should be compatible with each other. The alignment of the tooth structure should be compatible with the face.

 

What Details Should Be Considered While Making Aesthetic Smile Design?

Patient satisfaction can be seen as the first step. Before starting the treatment, the patient is interviewed, what he is complaining about, and why he is uncomfortable while laughing. Accordingly, a plan is made and the treatment begins. While performing the smile design process, attention is paid to the lip structure, the length of the teeth, the gingival characteristics and the harmony of the lips and teeth.

Is Face Shape Important in Smile Design?

Of course it is important. Teeth are a whole with face and smile. In order for this integrity to exist, the tooth structure and face shape must be in harmony. It is important in sex to achieve an aesthetic smile. Because while more delicate oval teeth are made in women, more angular teeth are made in men.

Which Privileged Treatments Are Used in Smile Design?

1-) Whitening time may vary. Tone can be opened with an average of 40 minutes. Whiteness can be preserved for up to 1 year by paying attention to the eating habits of the person to protect the tooth.

2-) Porcelain laminates are adhered to the teeth. It is possible to achieve a white aesthetic smile with the use of laminate.

3-) Zirconium is a widely used technique. Since zirconium is a light-transmitting metal, it is effective in giving an aesthetic appearance. It is necessary to consult a specialist physician while performing these applications.

4-) In the orthodontic technique, porcelain brackets are applied and the crooked tooth structure is treated.

5-) In the treatment of implants, missing teeth are completed. The tooth is given an aesthetic appearance.

What is the Timeframe of the Treatment Period?

The duration of treatment may vary within a single day or between 2-15 days, depending on the patient’s dental complaint and mouth structure.

 

Endodontics (Canal Treatment)

Sometimes the ‌pulp tissue, which is the deepest tissue of the teeth and contains the nerves and vascular packages, is damaged for reasons such as caries that affect the deep dental tissues, and sometimes traumas. With the damage of this tissue, pulp diseases that cause serious pain can be seen or the teeth can lose their vitality. If the teeth cannot maintain their vitality for any reason, the nerve tissues in the center of the tooth, namely the pulp, must be cleaned. This treatment is called endodontic treatment, namely root canal treatment. As a result of neglecting endodontic treatments, lesions may occur in the roots of the teeth, and even tooth loss may occur. For this reason, endodontic treatments are of great importance in oral and dental health.

 

Aesthetic Dentistry

When it comes to dental treatments, although the first thing that comes to mind is the treatment of rotten teeth and the compensation of missing teeth, smile aesthetics related to teeth and gums are also of great importance today. Causes such as cavities, excessive discoloration, crowding, defects in the tooth surface and form, the position of the gums relative to the teeth negatively affect dental aesthetics. Situations where smile aesthetics are not good enough cause negative effects on people both socially and psychologically.

Situations that disrupt smile aesthetics can be corrected with modern aesthetic dentistry practices. Applications such as whitening treatments, ‌composite or porcelain ‌lamina applications, porcelain ‌venner applications, and gingival arrangements are among the applications of aesthetic dentistry.

 

Pediatric Dentistry

Pedodontics (Pediatric Dentistry) is a department that aims to protect the milk and permanent teeth of 0-13 age group children in a healthy way, and to eliminate the problems caused by caries, trauma, hereditary and similar factors in these teeth. Pedodontics is a branch of dentistry that follows and treats the oral-dental health and maxillofacial development of children from infancy, and also includes preventive measures. In this period, pedodontists perform all kinds of preventive and curative treatments and preventive applications according to the oral and dental health needs of babies, children and young people.

Periodontology

When it comes to oral health, gums are as important as teeth. Situations in which the gingival health deteriorates sometimes consist of simple gingival bleeding, but sometimes it can cause serious problems that can go up to tooth loss. Periodontological treatments are applied for calculus cleaning, cleaning of tooth root surfaces and surgical curettage, removal of gingival recessions. In addition to these, the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as diseases of the gingival tissues around the implant, bleeding gums, tooth sensitivity and bad breath are made in the periodontology department.

 

 

Embedded Dental Surgery

Impacted (impacted) teeth are teeth that emerge during the development of the body and may work in biting and chewing functions in some patients, while in others they may show poor development in a way that harms oral-dental health and even general health.

Impacted teeth may not be located only in the upper or lower jaw, in the chin (anatomical placement), contrary to what our patients know. There are cases of impacted teeth (ectopic impacted teeth) observed in various parts of the body (within tumoral formations such as paranasal sinuses, other skull bones, ovarian cysts or dermoid cysts). Therefore, the interpretation and examination of the plastic surgeon is particularly important in order to determine the appropriate approach.

 

 

Orthodontics

It is a branch of dentistry that deals with dental crowding, disorders in tooth occlusion, and disorders in the relationship of the lower and upper jaws with each other. Crowded and irregular teeth are one of the most uncomfortable situations when people smile. In addition, other factors such as gapped teeth and the incompatibility of the positions of the bones of the jaws with each other adversely affect both the appearance of the teeth and facial aesthetics. Such disorders may also impair the chewing function. The healthiest solution to all these tooth appearance and jaw structure problems is possible with orthodontic treatment, which is also known as wire treatment among the people.

 

 

Restorative Dentistry

In order to provide an aesthetically beautiful smile, the type of treatment applied is called “Restorative Dentistry”. Every person has some personal aesthetic expectations. In addition to aesthetic qualities, when combined with health and naturalness, a positive image emerges. The arrangement and appearance between the teeth, the structure of the soft tissue surrounding the teeth, and the characteristic structure of the patient’s face form a whole. For this reason, a natural and beautiful appearance is aimed as a result of the meticulous work of dentists and technicians in relation to the details that adapt to the facial features. Gaining the desired qualities of the tooth structure, tooth color, removal of tartar, surface cleaning are important elements of Restorative Dentistry.
