A- Implant Treatment,
It is the name given to the tooth roots made to support the prostheses placed on the patient's jawbone. It also performs the chewing function and aesthetics of the person with the help of movable prostheses placed on these artificial roots, which are applied to replace the missing teeth in the jaw structure. If the dental prosthesis is regularly maintained, it has a form that can be used for life for many years without compromising its durability.
In What Cases Is Implant Treatment Necessary?
Implant treatment In people with bone resorption in the lower and upper jaw, in cases where there are no teeth and the prosthesis is not used, it is placed on the prosthesis where the implants are applied to increase the grip strength. The implant can also be inserted and removed if there is a lack of teeth in the posterior region of the jaw during the loss of large molars with a fixed bridge over several implants instead of a portable prosthesis.
Implant treatment In cases of loss of a single tooth, a single coating can also be applied to the implant without the need to shrink the teeth on both sides of the missing tooth. In large and toothless cavities, the bodies of the bridges made are also large, which creates problems. The durability and support of long bridges can be increased with one or more implants to be applied to the tooth-deficient area. Titanium material is preferred in implant application. This is due to the fact that it is resistant to pressure and forces and does not interact with body tissues. The implant can be applied to the cavities of previously lost teeth or to the tooth cavity after extraction if there is no serious infection condition.
What Should Be Considered Before Having a Dental Implant?
An artificial tooth root placed on the jawbone to restore the function and aesthetic appearance of missing teeth is called implant treatment. Implant screws used in treatment and used to obtain an artificial tooth root are structures with a certain thickness and width. For this reason, the area where the application will be performed should be the width and height of the jawbone. In these cases, determined by the examination, it is determined whether the jaw structure is suitable for treatment. The durability and strength of my bone that will be applied is also one of the conditions that affect the success of the implant.
In addition, the gums should be in a healthy structure before the implant procedure and during the time the implant remains in the mouth after the treatment. Bone structure is one of the most important conditions that is important in implant application and provides successful results from treatment. The patient who will be applied must have an appropriate bone tissue for treatment. It should be determined whether the bone tissue is suitable for this treatment and appropriate implant treatment planning should be carried out. It is important to have a radiological and clinical examination before implant application. There is no upper age limit if the general health condition of the person who will be implanted is good and the bone structure is appropriate. The main thing here is to be healthy, rather than age. Implant treatment is not considered appropriate only in young patients who have not yet completed bone development.
The implant application process varies according to the number of teeth to be made. Thanks to the developing technology, the treatment periods are also completed in a short time. The pain that will be felt after treatment is equivalent to the pain that will be felt after tooth extraction. During the application, general or local anesthesia can be used according to the patient's preference. After a smoothly completed application, people do not feel the presence of the implant and lead a comfortable life. Gums should be healthy before and after implant application. In order to ensure the fusion of the implant and the bone, it should be ensured that the pressure on the implanted area is minimized during the 3-6-month healing process. It is not recommended to smoke during the early recovery period, especially since smoking will increase the risk of infection.
B- Endodontics (root canal treatment and fillings),
Endodontics is a Latin term, derived from the words endo (internal) and donti (dental). The department of endodontics deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that occur in the tissues surrounding the tooth itself, as well as living tissues such as vessels and nerves in the inner part of the tooth, defined as the pulp of the tooth (tooth extract). Specialists in Endodontics, prevention of diseases, prevention of diseases of the pulp and lively in the mouth, endodontic treated teeth whitened, dental pain, trauma, surgical endodontic treatment of the teeth are exposed to many applications, such as deals with the diagnosis and treatment of dental problems.
What does endodontic treatment do?
Endodontics department physicians mainly aim to protect a person's natural teeth. For this, he tries to protect the tooth that exists in the mouth as much as possible and keep it in the mouth. In the endodontics clinic, damage to the dental pulp and surrounding tissues due to causes such as caries, fractures, infections and trauma is treated. For this purpose, the endodontist may perform root canal treatment as well as regeneration treatments to maintain the vitality of the tooth. While regeneration therapy aims to create living tissue inside the tooth root, canal treatment aims to protect the natural tooth in the mouth.
How is Endodontics (Root canal treatment) Performed?
Although dentists are trained in root canal treatment, it may be necessary to contact an endodontist for root canal treatment. Endodontic specialist dentists receive specialized training in the field of endodontics for at least 3 years on a 5-year dental education. Thus, the risk of unforeseen complications during the treatment stages is reduced to a low level. Endodontic treatment is carried out by Decontaminating the cavity formed by removing the vessels and nerves located in the pulp of the tooth, popularly known as the tooth extract, from the area, expanding the existing canal structure and closing the cavities formed in the canals with a special filling material. In this context, for canal treatment, the problem that exists in a person's tooth must first be determined by dental examination and radiological imaging methods. After the endodontic treatment has been decided, the doctor applies local anesthesia to reduce the feeling of pain. First of all, the caries in the enamel and dentin layers of the tooth are cleaned and a path to the pulp is created. Then, the tooth is isolated by attaching the “rubber dam” to the tooth to be treated. If necessary, the tooth is checked again using radiological imaging methods, and microorganisms inside the canal where the root is located are destroyed with the help of special tools. After this procedure, the tooth root canal is disinfected. The cleaned canal cavity is closed with fillers and the treatment process is terminated by closing the upper part of the tooth with a crown. As a result of the procedures performed during root canal treatment, the relationship between the tooth and the surrounding tissue is Decoupled. Thus, the risk of occurrence and recurrence of a possible infection is reduced. Although the tooth is dead after endodontics treatment, it performs its chewing function without any problems. Also, the jawbone located under the tooth is actively used. This, in turn, helps prevent the melting of the jawbone. Restoring the tooth after root canal treatment increases the life of the tooth. In other words, teeth that have undergone root canal treatment but have not been restored are more fragile compared to healthy teeth. For this reason, the tooth is completely covered with a porcelain, ceramic or metal crown to protect the tooth undergoing root canal treatment and extend its life. The restored tooth may be sensitive for several days following the procedure.
C- Orthodontics (correction of tangled and cramped teeth),
Orthodontics is a field of dentistry in which the diagnosis and control of crossed and incompatible teeth are performed, the treatment of which is carried out by specialists of the dentistry branch.
Orthodontic treatment; when the size of the teeth and jaw is incompatible, the teeth are arranged diagonally or intermittently. The method used to eliminate disorders caused by this type of tooth or jaw and to bring the teeth to the order they should be is called orthodontic treatment. The orthodontic treatment method is also known as braces treatment among the people. Decontamination is also known as orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic treatment is provided for the purpose of preventing gum diseases, eliminating the problem of grinding teeth, eliminating problems in the jaw joint, chewing function can be easily performed and eliminating speech disorders, except for aesthetic concerns.
Currently, orthodontic disorders are easily eliminated by various orthodontic treatment methods.
Orthodontic Treatment Methods
a-Classical (Metal) Braces Treatment
Classical (metal braces) orthodontic treatment is the most commonly used treatment method compared to other treatment methods. Metal brackets are more resistant to breakage and more durable. The reason why metal braces treatment is often preferred is because it is the method that results in a short time. Since the treatments with metal brackets take less time than the treatments with porcelain brackets, it provides a great advantage in terms of time.
Advantages of Metal Braces Treatment
The probability of breakage and rupture is quite low.
It is Durable and Sturdy.
It gives a much faster result than other methods of treatment.
It is more economical.
Disadvantages of Metal Braces Treatment
Pain or slight whining may be felt in the first week when the wires are inserted.
b-Transparent Braces Treatment
The orthodontic treatment method using porcelain braces and white braces is also known as the aesthetic bracket system or aesthetic braces treatment. Transparent brackets and wires are compatible with the color of the teeth, so they look less like metal braces and brackets compared to the system. A transparent braces system is usually the reason for preference in those who have more dental visibility and those who have aesthetic concerns. Transparent wire and brackets are more sensitive than metal brackets. According to the metal bracket treatment method of the transparent wire and bracket system, the treatment time is slower and requires more maintenance. More and more attention has been paid to the transparent braces and bracket system in recent years.
Advantages of Transparent Wire and Bracket System
It is less noticeable because it is in harmony with the color of the teeth.
It is aesthetic.
Allergic reactions to the metal that occur in some people do not appear.
Disadvantages of the Transparent Wire and Bracket System
Compared to metal wire treatment, results are obtained more slowly.
It is more sensitive and fragile than metal brackets.
It is slightly more expensive than metal wire treatment.
c-Treatment of Transparent Plaque (Invisalign)
Along with the developing technology, orthodontic treatment methods have also started to increase. A radio orthodontic treatment method has been developed in which transparent plates are used as an alternative to classical braces treatment. It is a suitable treatment method for those who do not have closure problems. Three-dimensional plaques suitable for your jaw model are produced and these plaques are changed and the places of the teeth are arranged throughout the treatment. Transparent plaques are usually preferred by individuals of all ages who have aesthetic concerns. Radio orthodontics is not applied in those who have skeletal disorders, those who have serious closing problems, and those who have an excess of Dec December between the teeth.
Advantages of Radio Orthodontics with Transparent Plates (Invisalign)
It is more convenient to use than classic braces.
Cleaning and maintenance is easy.
It can be removed and reattached for periods that will not affect the treatment.
It is aesthetic.
Disadvantages of Radio Orthodontics with Transparent Plaques (Invisalign)
It should remain in the mouth for about 20 hours daily.
When it is not installed, the treatment process is prolonged.
It is more expensive than classical orthodontic treatments.
d-Invisible Braces (Lingual) Treatment
Invisible braces (lingual) treatment is an orthodontic treatment method that consists of applying a wire and bracket system to the inside of the teeth so that it is not visible from the outside. Braces and braces in the treatment of invisible braces (lingual) are preferred by people who do not prefer both classical braces and porcelain treatment method due to the fact that they are not obvious when viewed from the outside. It is an effective method of treatment, and the process of getting used to it takes a little longer than other methods.
Advantages of Invisible Braces (Lingual) Treatment
It relieves aesthetic anxiety by not being visible when viewed from the outside.
They do not cause allergic reactions.
Advantages of Invisible Braces (Lingual) Treatment
The duration of treatment is longer than with classical methods of treatment.
It is more difficult to maintain and clean.
It is more expensive than classical orthodontics.
There may be a pronunciation shortage until the tongue gets used to the strings.
D- ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a branch of dentistry in which the pathologies of soft or hard tissues such as cheeks, palate, tongue and lips located in the mouth are treated. Oral and maxillofacial surgery; tooth extractions, impacted teeth, jaw and surrounding tissue cysts, jaw tumors and their treatment, prosthetic surgery, jaw and facial pain, temporomandibular joint disorders, such as deals with the diagnosis and treatment of salivary gland diseases of the mouth.
Twenties Toothache and the Treatment Process
3. Decubitus, which should last from the age of 17 to 26 years, up to 20 years. they are large molars.
20-year-old teeth are the teeth located at the back of the mouth. Because they are in an area that is difficult to reach and see, brushing and caring for them can be more difficult than for other teeth. Due to insufficient brushing, 20-year-old teeth easily decay, leading to pain and bad breath.
20-year-old teeth in some cases can not come out due to shortness of place in the jaw. They can remain fully embedded (so that they are never visible in the mouth, which remains under both the gum and the jawbone), as well as become associated with the oral environment by remaining half-buried under the gum. In this case, they lead to compression and accumulation of food in the area where they come out of the gum, causing infection. this picture, which causes swelling and redness of the gums around the 20-year-old tooth, severe pain radiating to the neck and ear, swelling of the lymph nodes, pain when opening the mouth and swallowing, is called pericoronitis.
20-year-old teeth that are fully embedded can compress the teeth in front of them, creating a cross (curvature) in the teeth.
They can also put pressure on the neighboring tooth, causing this tooth to decay. Buried 20-year-old teeth that have not been noticed for many years cause cysts that reach large sizes in the jaw, which can lead to serious problems.
Even if it does not cause any problems, 20-year-old teeth may need to be removed for orthodontic treatment in order for other teeth to be sorted properly. For such reasons, it is necessary to remove 20-year-old teeth with local anesthesia only by numbing the area where they are located.
extraction of teeth at the age of 20 should be performed by maxillofacial surgeons.
A healthy 20-year-old female who has taken her place in the right position does not need to be pulled out.
E- AESTHETIC DENTISTRY
Cosmetic Dentistry, Dentistry combining different branches of a healthy and aesthetic Smile Design aims to. In this treatment method, the confluence of Medicine and art, the light, porcelain fillings (inlays-onlays), whitening (bleaching), zirconia veneer and laminate applications are designed by utilizing your facial laughter.
In lamina or leaf porcelain applications, leaf porcelain is placed on the tooth in a thin layer, protecting the existing teeth, without eroding the surface of the tooth or, if necessary, eroding it very slightly. Zirconium coatings are also often preferred in terms of durability and natural appearance by applying them in cases where the loss in the tooth is greater.
In pink aesthetic applications, people whose gums look too much can pull their gums up with laser application. After a pink aesthetic, the gums that look long become shorter and the length distance of the teeth increases, and thus people get a more aesthetic smile.
In bleaching applications, the color of the teeth is whitened by two or three tones with a one-hour procedure after professional tooth cleaning.
Aesthetic dentistry aims to provide self-confidence and a feeling of more comfort while giving a healthy smile to a person
It is a porcelain that is glued onto the patient's teeth so that it is not noticeable. Although they are very thin, these porcelains have a structure that shows extremely strong strength when they are glued to the surface of the teeth.
Porcelain Laminates are the most preferred application.
1.during the session, the Dentist takes measurements of the patient's teeth and takes pictures of them. Information about the final version is provided. Examinations are performed on the patient's gums. If it is when an operation is to be performed on the gums, for example, if the teeth appear a lot during a smile, an operation to shorten the gums is performed, called gingivectomy. After waiting a few days for the procedure and the gums have taken their final shape, a very small amount of etching is performed on the front of the teeth to make room for the porcelain lamina. Measurements taken in a computer environment using a digital scanner are designed in a computer environment or measurements taken by traditional methods are delivered to the laboratory and 2. in the session, laminae are placed in the mouth and treated.
The advantages of porcelain veneers are that they are more natural and aesthetic in appearance. No one understands the application of porcelain, except for the person undergoing treatment. The cut is applied only on the front part of the teeth. Because the area of the teeth facing the tongue is the real tooth, the person does not feel any difference.
For this procedure, it is necessary that the teeth have not been cut before. If the coating has been made, it is no longer possible to make a porcelain laminate. If there is a problem called a closing problem that will negatively affect the lamina, or if the teeth are too excessively crossed, porcelain lamina application may not be performed again. After applying porcelain laminates made in the form, size and color that suits the person, he does not need to pay too much attention when using them. It will be enough just to show the importance that needs to be shown to your own teeth. With a good oral care (provided that you use dental floss daily), you have the opportunity to live with healthy, natural porcelain for many years.
Zirconium is a substance that is white with a heat-resistant color permeability and is used to make teeth. Zirconium substance is unique in its kind. It only provides diversity in terms of color. Zirconium abutment is the name of the application. Aesthetic concern is important for the front teeth. For this reason, Dec substance called abutment is used to give a natural appearance to the area between the implant and the prosthesis in the teeth that need to be implanted. The goal is to make the image natural.
The dental problem is that anyone who needs a coating can have a zirconium coating made. But by the age of 20, jaw development and, accordingly, gum enlargement may occur. That is why it is recommended that the patient complete the development process.
It can be used for many years if you care about your dental health.
There is no general eating and drinking ban and rule for those who have zirconium plating. However, behaviors such as breaking crustacean foods that are objectionable for natural teeth with teeth, consuming excessive hot and cold are also negatively received for zirconium plating.
Because natural teeth are alive, they are affected by food and drinks. But zirconium, which is an artificial coating, is not affected by stains and discoloration. It does not change from white to yellow over time.
Zirconium is compatible with teeth and gums due to its structure. In addition, it also saves the patient from a second procedure because it does not contain metals against an allergic reaction. It also does not cause gum disease.
The stages of construction of zirconium cladding in general take place as follows;
A dental diamond glued to the surface of the tooth adds sparkle to your smile. The procedure is performed by gluing artificial crystal stones or diamonds to the surface of the teeth with a special technique. It does not create any problems such as abrasions or stains. If the tooth diamond is overstrained by movements such as biting, there may be a risk of falling out of the tooth.
There are dental crystals on the market that you can paste yourself, but the adhesive material does not have the same content as the one used by the dentist. If the dental calculus falls out, permanent color changes may occur in your tooth. If you are considering getting a dental diamond glued, you can consult with our expert physicians.
