Dental Implants: anchoring the perfect smile

Dental implants treatment allows patients to regain the ability to eat virtually anything and to smile with confidence.

Dentists at Yeditepe University Hospital carry out dental implants using tiny titanium posts, which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes.

Yeditepe University Hospital dentists surgically place the anchors into the jawbone. The bone bonds with the titanium, forming a strong foundation for artificial teeth. These posts yield stable anchors for artificial placement teeth.  

Dental implants can also aesthetically regain facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that might happen when teeth are missing.

Mouth Diseases

A healthy mouth in a healthy body! The mouth is a window into the health of the body. Oral health is vital to general health and quality of life.

A healthy mouth is a state of being free from mouth and facial pain, oral and throat cancer, oral infection and sores, tooth decay and tooth loss and other dental disorders that can hinder an individual’s ability to bite, chew, smile, or speak.

The most common mouth diseases are dental cavities, periodontal (gum) diseases, oral cancer and oral infectious diseases.

Early detection of oral cancer is essential to reduce the risks of this devastating disease. The dental care clinic at Yeditepe University Hospital utilizes the most effective, non-invasive techniques that can aid medical practitioners in the early diagnosis of oral cancer.

ORTHODONTIC TREATMENTS

Teeth Correction

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry dealing with teeth, the normal structure and development of the chin, irregularities and treatments. Orthodontic treatment usually includes the use of some apparatus such as brackets. The use of such corrective apparatus involves the following steps:

  • Occlusion of the toot gap
  • Correcting closing abnormalities
  • Fix crooked teeth
  • Aligning the teeth and lips

Orthodontic treatment at Yeditepe University Hospital

There are 2 types of orthodontic treatment:   

Removable orthodontic treatment

Unlike traditional braces, removable orthodontic appliances are used to keep teeth in their corrected positions and to induce growth of the jaws in order to impact changes in facial structure. Removable appliances are often utilized before and in conjunction with fixed appliances.

Fixed orthodontic treatment

They are sets of wires and brackets glued to the teeth. They are commonly known as braces. They act as handles that move your teeth under the control of orthodontic wires. The wires are tightened and adjusted, gradually applying enough pressure to move the teeth (bone remodeling).  

Benefits of orthodontic treatment at Yeditepe University Hospital

An orthodontic dental treatment can be of tremendous benefit to patients suffering from difficulty chewing or biting, breathing through the mouth, and protruding teeth.

The benefits of orthodontic treatment include:

  • Straightening teeth
  • Better chewing function and speech
  • Improved ability to clean one’s teeth
  • Reduction in mouth-breathing
  • Improved aesthetic facial shape and profile
  • Improved self-esteem and confidence

Orthodontic care at Yeditepe University Hospital dental department combines art, science and dental technology to create healthy smiles that can last for years to come.

Lingual (Invisible) Orthodontics

Traditional braces can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. If you are concerned about wearing visible braces, lingual braces in Turkey can be an excellent choice. Lingual braces are dental orthodontic appliances that are attached to the inside surface, which makes them practically invisible and provides an appealing aesthetic appearance without the clunky-looking braces.  

An orthodontic specialist at Yeditepe University Hospital can evaluate your needs and help you decide if lingual orthodontic treatment is the right dental treatment that suits your lifestyle.
