ALL-ON-4

All-on-4® All on 6®

All-on-4® All on 6® treatment concept The process that started with the development of dental implants by Swedish Doctor Per-Ingvar Branemark, who proved that bone can be biologically fused with titanium, led to years of groundbreaking discoveries in dentistry, and then to the miracle method known as the All-on-4® treatment concept.   The birth of implants laid the foundation for replacing missing teeth. But the ability to replace an entire jaw with just 4 or 6 titanium implants is a true marvel of modern dentistry. This treatment concept was first developed with Nobel Biocare All-on-4® in 1998 by European innovator Dr. Performed by Paulo Malo.   What is the All-on-4® All-on-6® treatment concept?   The All-on-4® treatment concept is a life-changing, same-day surgical and prosthetic procedure for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth. This innovative procedure involves attaching a full prosthetic bridge to the jaw with four or six dental implants in one surgery. A reliable and efficient alternative to traditional prostheses, the All-on-4® treatment concept has been successfully applied to thousands of patients over the years.   Why is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept Different From Other Protheses? The All-on-4® treatment concept allows patients who have lost all their teeth or who need to have all their teeth removed due to severe caries or bone loss, to have their teeth extracted, implants and temporary hard teeth placed on the same day, more naturally and without restriction. In this way, it is a more durable and permanent solution that allows patients to eat, talk and laugh without interruption.   Is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept a good Option for me? There are several considerations that indicate whether you are an ideal candidate for this procedure. The factors that you need to keep in your mind when considering restoring your smile with the All-On-4® treatment concept:   Missing Teeth – Since the All-On-4® treatment concept includes a full denture, the remaining teeth must be removed. However, if you have decayed teeth or bone loss, these teeth should also be extracted during the implant surgery and then place the implants and the temporary prosthesis should be fixed in the same session. Dr. Furkan Basak will explain the whole process to you the most accurate way and answer your questions during your visit.   Your General Health Situation - As with any surgery, the better your overall health, the faster the recovery and the lower the chance of infection. The decision to treat patients with advanced heart disease, patients who have received radiotherapy in the head and neck region, and patients with advanced diabetes is taken after the approval of their doctors. Dr. Furkan Basak can easily evaluate whether your general health status and jaw structure are suitable for all-On-4®/6® after your oral examination.   What is included in the All-on-4® Treatment Concept Process? Thanks to decades of research and advancement in the latest technology, replacing teeth with the All-on-4® system is typically only a one-day procedure, so the process is pretty quick. This surgical (invasive) dental implant solution allows the remove of remaining teeth and cleaning of infected or diseased tissues, placement and suturing of each implant, and then fixing your temporary dentures to the implants at the same day. In this way, you will come out of the door with a temporary prosthetic tooth attached to the implants and you will eat with your temporary but new teeth that night! We will then meet with you to make your permanent teeth in the following months to ensure the perfect fit and comfort.   What are the Benefits of the All-on-4® Treatment Concept? Convenience: No dietary restrictions Comfort: Custom fit Shorter treatment time: Just one day Restoration of complete jaw teeth Immediate function with fixed temporary prosthesis …and more

Teeth Cleaning

What is teeth cleaning? Teeth cleaning is the process of cleaning the stain, plaque and tartar that has formed around the teeth for various reasons. Thanks to this process, these harmful structures in the gums around the teeth are removed and achieves ideal oral hygiene.   Who is teeth cleaning done? Tartars can form around the teeth and gums due to reasons such as poor oral hygiene, irregular brushing or not brushing at all, smoking, excessive consumption of junk food during the day. This can often cause bad breath and/or bleeding and gum recession. Even if there are no such complaints, if tartar is detected by the dentist, it should be cleaned. In this way, oral hygiene is maximized.   How is dental calculus cleaning done? Teeth cleaning is done with tools called cavitron, which is made of a metal piece and prevents the teeth from heating by removing water from the tip. These tools, which are used to break the dental stones and remove them from the area with vibration, do not cause any damage to the teeth. Local anesthesia is usually not required during this procedure. During this process, which takes approximately 45 minutes, there may be slight ache in the teeth, but absolutely unbearable pain does not occur. In patients with unbearable pain, regional cleaning is performed in 2 or 4 sessions under local anesthesia. After the tartar is cleaned with a cavitron and the teeth and gums are completely cleaned, the stains on the teeth are removed with a special paste and brush, and the teeth cleaning process is terminated.   What should be considered after teeth cleaning? It is recommended not to eat anything for half an hour after calculus is cleaned and the teeth are polished with a special paste. Because this paste, which contains fluorine, strengthens the teeth for the first 30 minutes. Teeth may bleed for a while after tartar cleaning. This bleeding passes in a short time and is not an important condition.   How often should teeth cleaning be done? Although it is said that teeth cleaning should be done every 6 months, the important thing is to go to the dentist for the routine control in every 6 months. If your dentist detects tartar during these controls, tartar cleaning should be done. However, dental calculus does not form in the teeth of people who pay great attention to oral hygiene in 6 months, in such cases there is no need for calculus cleaning. And then polishing process will be sufficient.   Is teeth cleaning a painful procedure? Teeth cleaning is not usually a painful procedure. However, patients with sensitivity in their teeth may feel a very slight tingling during tartar cleaning.   What should be done to prevent tartar formation? It is ideal to brush the teeth twice a day, once before going to bed and once after waking up in the morning. Although it is thought that it should be brushed after breakfast, brushing your teeth as soon as you wake up increases your saliva secretion and allows you to grind foods more easily with the antimicrobials in the saliva. After brushing, cleaning the anterior teeth (6 teeth with canine teeth and 4 teeth in between) with dental floss, and premolars and molars with an interface brush of the diameter recommended by your dentist will help prevent cavities and calculus that will occur at the interfaces of the teeth. Ideal tooth brushing time is 2-3 minutes. After all these procedures, gargling with mouthwashes will greatly prevent the formation of tartar.   What should be considered when brushing teeth? While brushing teeth, the brush is lifted at an angle of 45 degrees to face the roots of the teeth, and first 10 circular movements are made, thus removing bacteria and food residues. Immediately afterwards, these bacteria and food residues should be swept into the oral cavity by holding the brush perpendicular to the tooth and sweeping in one direction (upward downward, downward upward). Excessively hard and pressing brushing should be avoided, and the outer surfaces should never be brushed by making a back and forth motion.

REMPLISSAGE ESTHÉTIQUE

Aesthetic Filling

What is Aesthetic Tooth Filling?   Aesthetic tooth filling is the name given to the fillings made on the visible surfaces of the teeth that appear on the smile line when we smile. Aesthetic fillings are made to close the gaps between the teeth, to extend the length of the short teeth, to correct the shape of the deformed teeth, as well as to the decayed teeth.   Who is aesthetic filling applied to?   In cases where there is caries in the tooth or teeth in the anterior region, aesthetic fillings can be made, as well as for purely aesthetic purposes. Some situations that require aesthetic filling are as follows; - teeth with gaps in the anterior region - teeth with fractures, cracks or abrasions in the anterior region due to trauma, clenching or brushing too hard, - congenitally genetically distorted teeth - teeth with stains in the enamel layer that can not be removed by tartar cleaning.   What material is the aesthetic filling made of?   The aesthetic filling material is made of a material called composite, which is also applied in the back area. However, unlike composites applied in the posterior region, aesthetic fillings have a chameleon effect that imitates the color of the tooth. Again, this filling material has a much higher level of light transmittance and polishability than the fillings applied in the back area. In this way, since the color and the light transmittance of aesthetic fillings are very similar to natural teeth, they are not noticed when smiling or talking, and people can continue their daily lives easily.   How is aesthetic filling done?   If the aesthetic filling is performed due to caries, first the tooth or teeth are anesthetized with local anesthesia. Then the decayed part is removed from the tooth and the aesthetic filling is placed on the tooth and hardened with blue light. If filling is done only for aesthetic reasons, not because of caries, the tooth does not need to be anesthetized. The surface to be filled is roughened with the help of a bur in a way that will not damage the tooth, and the filling is made more conservatively. This etching process is carried out in such a small amount that it cannot be noticed with the naked eye. Some fillings are made by layering method with composites with different properties to imitate enamel and dentin tissue.   What should those who have aesthetic fillings pay attention to?   If the aesthetic filling was performed with local anesthesia, it is not recommended to eat or drink hot drinks before the effect of anesthesia has passed. Because while the anesthetic effect continues, food or hot drinks can burn the numb tissues, and the tongue or cheeks or lips can be bitten without realizing it. Although the duration of anesthesia differs from person to person, its effect lasts between 3 and 5 hours.   If fillings are performed without using local anesthesia, the person can start eating and drinking immediately. Because these fillings do not undergo any deformation since the hardening processes are completed with blue light (what we call laser among the people) during the process. However, trauma to the tooth, severe clenching teeth, crusty and hard foods can damage healthy teeth as well as fillings. For this reason, we need to pay the same level of care to both the filled teeth and the healthy, untreated teeth.   How long is the life of the aesthetic filling?   Aesthetic fillings can be used for many years if oral hygiene is taken care of and no trauma occurs to the tooth. These fillings usually do not fall out completely unless there is an extremely high trauma or there is very poor oral hygiene. Sometimes, small pieces of fracture may occur at the ends, but these parts can also be repaired in a very short time.   Do aesthetic fillings change color?   There are a wide variety of brands used in aesthetic fillings. The fillings used today, produced with very high quality and good technologies, have prevented discoloration at maximum levels. However, excessive consumption of tea, coffee, coloring foods, and excessive smoking may rarely cause color change in fillings over the years.

DENTAL FILLING

Dental Fillings

What is dental fillings? Dental fillings are the restoration of decayed or broken teeth with various materials in order to treat them. In this way, the treated tooth regains its former functions. Tooth fillings should be done as soon as caries is detected. Thus, possible inflammation, pain or tooth loss can be prevented.   To whom is dental filling done? Dental fillings can be made for people whose teeth are rotten, broken or deformed for various reasons, as well as for aesthetic reasons. Gaps between front teeth can be filled with a process called bonding. In this way, the teeth can gain an aesthetic appearance and provide full function.   How is a dental filling done? If a tooth filling is to be made due to caries, the tooth is anesthetized with local anesthesia first. Then, the caries and the old filling, if any, are completely removed from the tooth. After selecting suitable materials according to the size of the caries and isolating the tooth from saliva, the filling material is placed on the tooth, the filling material adapted to the adjacent and opposite teeth is hardened. At the last stage, the height of the filling is also checked, the filling material is polished and the process is terminated. Since these procedures are performed under local anesthesia, they are completely painless.   Which materials are used for filling? Although many different materials have been used as dental filling material from past to present, the most widely used material today is composite fillings. In rare cases, amalgam, glass ionomer or compomer fillings may be preferred. None of these materials are harmful for health. When the most commonly used composite fillings will be made in the posterior region, more resistant fillings should be chosen against chewing forces. Fillings for aesthetic purposes or to affect aesthetics in the anterior regions are made with materials with a chameleon effect and higher light transmittance.   What should be considered after tooth filling? If the filling was done with local anesthesia, it is recommended not to eat or drink hot drinks before the effect of anesthesia has passed. Because while the anesthetic effect continues, food or hot drinks can burn the numb tissues, and the tongue, cheeks or lips can be bitten without realizing it. Although the duration of anesthesia differs from person to person, its effect lasts between 3 and 5 hours.   Will there be pain after the filling? Depending on the size of the filling and its proximity to the nerve, it may ache for up to 24 hours. We recommend that you contact your doctor, after 24 hours if there is still a pain especially in the form of a pulse and getting worse.   Does dental caries cause new caries on the other teeth? It does not directly cause caries in other teeth, but especially in a caries between two teeth, when food accumulation increases, can be cause for the caries in the adjacent tooth.   Can a tooth without pain be filled? Filling should be done without losing time even if there is no pain in the tooth with caries. In some cases, dental caries can progress rapidly and reach the nerve of the tooth and cause pain and inflammation. In such cases, the tooth can no longer be saved with filling, but with root canal treatment. Therefore, it is the healthiest procedure to have a filling done without waiting for pain or aching.   How long does a dental filling last? Tooth filling can remain in the mouth for many years if oral hygiene is taken care of and if there is no clenching or abnormal chewing or eating habits. The materials used today connect the filling and the tooth to each other as firmly as possible. If the tooth does not decay later or if the filling does not break for various reasons, the person can use the filling for many years.   Does tooth filling cause bad breath?   A filling made with good edge harmony and quality materials does not cause bad breath but if the decayed tooth is not treated, it can cause bad breath.
