What is an implant?
Today, the implant is the closest alternative to natural teeth. Implanted teeth provide better speech and chewing function than conventional bridges and prostheses. The implant method brings a natural look to your face.
Today it is understood that the implant is the most important dental treatment in the 21st century. Proper diagnosis, dental implant, when applied with sufficient knowledge, experience and equipment, is a form of treatment that can give successful results for the patient and the physician.
Briefly, the implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in the jawbone and made of suitable material to restore the function and aesthetics of the missing teeth.
The timing of orthodontic treatment is different in each individual, but every child should be checked with a panoramic x-ray during the age of 7-8, with or without orthodontic disorder!
It is possible to treat each patient at any age but in different ways. In orthodontic treatments in adults, the types of planning and mechanics can be changed, but orthodontic treatment can be done at any age.
Duration of Orthodontic Treatment
The duration of orthodontic treatment may vary depending on the application to be performed, the condition of the patient, the age, and the size of the problem. It is a process that lasts from 1-2 months to 2.5 years; In most patients, treatment was observed to last 1-2 years on average.
Treatments that target the movement of one or more teeth with moving devices take 6-9 months. The treatment of non-skeletal anomalies that only concern the teeth with fixed devices takes 1-1.5 years.
Treatments with such fixed devices (brackets) may also take different periods of time depending on the nature of the material used (metal, ceramic, brackets, lingual therapy, etc.).
The treatment of skeletal anomalies may take longer. The duration of the treatment also affects the cooperation of the individuals with the physician and the individual biological response to the treatment.
What is reinforcement therapy and how long does it last?
After active orthodontic treatment, it is passive treatment to prevent the new position of teeth and jaws from returning to their pre-treatment positions after the teeth and jaws are brought to the desired smooth and correct positions. Moving and fixed reinforcing devices are used to keep the teeth in their corrected positions.
The duration of reinforcement therapy and the type of device to be used in this period depend on the type of orthodontic anomaly at the beginning and the duration of active orthodontic therapy.
The majority of individuals who wish to receive orthodontic treatment apply to an orthodontist to improve their appearance and smile. However, orthodontic problems affect our dental health.
– Allows the person to bite, chew and speak more effectively,
– Ensures that the person has healthy teeth and gums in perplexed teeth that are prone to caries and gum diseases,
– An important part of the treatment of jaw joint disorders caused by tooth closure relationships such as open closure, deep closure, or cross closure.
When should Orthodontic Examination be performed?
In children and adolescents, the aim is to direct growth and to correct both jaws and teeth. For this purpose, if the first orthodontist visit is made around 6-7 years when the permanent teeth start to fall, some orthodontic problems can be solved with very simple interventions from the end of the milk dentition period without postponing the adult period. These treatments are aimed at the movement of one or several teeth with moving devices and last for 6-9 months.
Early interventions (without entering puberty) allow for easier treatment, especially if the problem is caused by the jaw bones. Treatment of skeletal anomalies may take longer because of the growth and development of bones.
Bad habits; In order to prevent problems due to factors such as finger sucking, abnormal swallowing, or to gain space for permanent teeth, a wide variety of mobile and fixed devices can be prepared during mixed dentition (7-11 years).
Teeth may lose their whiteness over the years due to food, drinks (coffee, tea) and cigarette consumption. Bleaching can be performed to correct this condition. Teeth whitening is easy, reliable, economical and more protective as the teeth are not abraded compared to porcelain coatings.
In humans, tooth colors vary just like skin colors. Some people are lucky and naturally white teeth color. Sometimes we are born with a genetically darker tooth color. Our teeth may also become darker due to some antibiotics used by our mother during pregnancy or as a child. Or the density of flour in the water we drink causes the tooth color to darken.
The process of making darkened teeth lighter for various reasons is called teeth whitening.
The way for a nice smile is through smooth, white teeth. With the advances in dentistry, it is possible to get white teeth with some bleaching substances instead of having the yellowed teeth made of porcelain. Bleaching (tooth whitening) method, the patient is first done dental calculus cleaning. The lips, gums and cheeks are then covered with special insulating materials. This prevents damage to these areas.
The teeth whitening process is controlled in 6-month periods and regular treatment is provided to ensure that the patient has beautiful teeth.
Lips, gingiva, teeth, such as a number of aesthetic criteria separately and the relationship between each other is evaluated, including detailed aesthetic analysis, is to evaluate the form of smile.
How to make a smile design?
When designing smile, aesthetics of the area created by the teeth (white aesthetics) and aesthetics of the area created by the gums (pink aesthetics) are evaluated. For this purpose, firstly, the level of gingiva on the photograph should be evaluated and which teeth will be included in the design.
Dental-gingival-bone levels of the teeth are then examined clinically and radiographically. The treatment plan is then clarified.
Zirconium Dental Treatment
FOR A BEAUTIFUL SMILE
Zirconium Dental Treatment
Zirconia dental coating is the highest quality product ever achieved in terms of aesthetics, durability, texture harmony and naturalness which are the basic requirements of dentistry.
Every day in aesthetic dentistry, metal substructures are being removed from porcelain. This system, which has all the features we want, such as biological harmony, natural appearance, aesthetic and mechanical resistance, is used as alt zirconium beyaz, which is a white alloy instead of metal.
We prefer zirconium substructure porcelain because they are aesthetic enough to use in front teeth and robust enough to be used in back teeth. These systems improve people’s quality of life.
Root Canal Treatment
It is a form of treatment in cases where the pulp is damaged beyond repair. Pulp is a soft layer consisting of the vascular nerve pack located in the innermost part of the tooth. If the inflamed or damaged pulp is not removed, it causes infection of the teeth and surrounding tissues.
Why is Canal Treatment Needed?
If there is infection or permanent damage to the pulp, canal treatment is needed. Untreated bruises can cause pulp infection. Tooth enamel and dentin are lost to the root canal due to caries and the bacteria caused by caries cause infection in the pulp. Antibiotics have no effect on these internal infections. This infection causes inflammation and inflammation prevents blood from reaching the tooth. Therefore, it is difficult for antibiotics to reach infection through the bloodstream. The more difficult it is for the blood to reach the pulp, the more difficult it is for the pulp to heal itself. Deep restorative work such as fracture, cracking, trauma or one or more fillings in the tooth may damage the pulp after a certain period of time. In addition, any treatment for the tooth may damage the pulp. People who will be crowned may need root canal treatment for tooth root before application. Although there is no infection in many cases, the pulp may become inflamed and then heal and return to normal. Before the root canal treatment is performed, an x-ray of the tooth is made to determine whether such inflammation is present. Inflammation in the pulp can cause pain and infection. The infection in the pulp can cause abscess formation and damage to the bone surrounding the female. The goal of root canal treatment is to remove the female, infected or damaged pulp by removing it and to treat any inflammation and to fill the empty channels with a special filler. If the root canal treatment is not performed, the tooth may need to be extracted. Protecting the natural tooth is always preferred. Lack of one or more teeth may cause adjacent teeth to move and posture. In addition, protecting natural teeth does not require expensive and deep treatments such as implants and bridges. If the root canal treatment is not applied to a damaged and infected tooth, the infection of the dental body does not mean that the root canal will not be removed after a few years. In general, root canal treatments are caused by deep and wide-spread caries. Therefore, the tooth becomes weak. If the tooth is covered with crown or filled with a tooth-colored composite filling after the root canal treatment, the tooth can be used for life.
• If necessary, anesthesia is applied. After anesthesia, the cavity is opened in the tooth to reach the pulp chamber. The length of the root canals is then measured.
• X-ray is taken to determine the channel lengths. Files are placed in the channel to be measured. The film is then drawn again to determine how close the file is to the end of the channel.
• The infection is cleared with specially produced instruments. The channel is expanded with antiseptic washing solutions and files. The channel is then dried.
• For the root canal treatment, all main and lateral canals in the tooth should be cleaned. Generally, there are one in the upper anterior teeth, one or two in the lower anterior teeth, one or two in the small molars, and three or four channels in the large molars. But the location and shape of the channels vary from person to person.
• Nd: YAG laser is used for cleaning main and side channels.
• Channels are filled with gutta-perks which are permanent materials. The gutta-perks prevent infection and contamination of the canals.
• Temporary filling material is placed on the gutta-perks to cover the remaining part until the tooth is ready for permanent filling or crown application.
• The type of restoration depends on the condition of the tooth. The tooth is restored with composite filling, inlay, crown or post & corelu crown. In particular, due to chewing deformation may require the application of crowns in molars. The crown reinforces the tooth and protects the tooth from breakage. The crown should be applied as soon as possible. Ideally, it should be done within one month after root canal treatment. Permanent restoration of the tooth is important to prevent further damage to the tooth. Since the temporary filler is not durable, it is essential to replace it with a permanent filler. Pulp is the part that reacts against heat. Since the tissues and nerves surrounding the canal treated tooth are still in place, the tooth may be sensitive to pressure and touch.
Periodontology (Gingival Diseases)
Periodontology is the branch of dentistry that examines the clinical and microscopic structure of the hard and soft tissues surrounding the teeth, diagnoses the diseases affecting these tissues, applies the treatments and maintains the health gained afterwards. .
SYMPTOMS OF DENTAL MEAT DISEASE
Withdrawal of gums
Sensitivity to cold drinks
Teeth not closing as before
Bleeding of the gums when brushing teeth
New intervals between teeth
Permanent wounds on the mouth
Swelling and redness of the gums,
Periodontal diseases can be prevented and controlled to a great extent by the treatments applied by specialist physicians. At this point, as in all other diseases, one of the important elements is to start treatment early. The other is training by the periodontologist to effectively clean the teeth and gums. Thus, the recovered health is taken under protection.
It should be kept in mind that gum diseases do not heal themselves or unconsciously using medications (such as antibiotics, mouthwashes, vitamins). It must be treated by a gum specialist.
In the early stages of gum disease, dental stones and plaque layers are removed from the gums using special dental instruments. In addition to this cleaning, it may be necessary to apply curettage. In the initial stage of the gum treatment, prostheses that do not conform to the edges of the gums or are not correct are corrected, decayed teeth are treated, poorly made fillings are restored, and teeth that cannot be recovered are pulled. These processes eliminate the factors that facilitate the growth of bacteria in the teeth and gums.
In more advanced cases, surgical intervention may be necessary. Surgical intervention removes dental stones and diseased tissues in the deep pockets of the gums, flattening the root surface and making the gums easy to clean.
