General dentistry includes a range of treatment options and applications to maintain a good standardof oral health.Treatments are applied to keep your mouth, gums and teeth healthy and pain-free. Theultimate goal in general dentistry is to prevent and diagnose tooth and gum disease.
The services offered by general dentistry are:
The implant can be presented as a better alternative to poorly fitting prostheses. can offer it as anoption in cases where the lack of natural tooth roots does not allow prosthesis to be made. How theimplant surgery is performed varies depending on the type of implant and the condition of yourjawbone.
Dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone where they act as the roots of missing teeth.Because the titanium in the implants fuses with your jawbone, the implants do not slip, make noise,or cause bone damage like bridges or dentures. The materials are quite durable.
Restorative treatments are the name given to treatment that aims to restore broken or damagedteeth to a healthier and more functional state, restore your smile, and prevent further oral healthcomplications.
In case of missing teeth and severe damage, you may be referred to specialist treatment. However,for smaller repairs and minor cosmetic concerns, your general dentist will be able to provide thetreatment needed. Common restorative treatments include:
Fillings are used to treat dental cavities and caries. Decayed teeth are prone to bacterial buildup andother complications such as infection and tooth loss can occur if not treated early. Many decays willgo unnoticed and show no symptoms until they become much larger. Your general dentist detectsearly signs of cavities and treats them before they become a problem.
Filling is a routine and painless procedure.
Root Canal Treatment
When a tooth is infected, root canal treatment (Endodontic treatment) is performed to remove theinfection and restore the tooth. This procedure is performed by your general dentist and is a painlessprocedure.
If you have a tooth that is severely damaged or at high risk of fracture, a traditional filling may not beenough to support the tooth in the long term. In these cases, your general dentist may recommendusing a dental crown to restore the affected tooth. While the filling fills a hole in the tooth, the crownis designed to cover the damaged tooth and protect it from further decay and damage.
Preventive treatments are there to help you take care of your oral health and prevent dental and gumdisease before it occurs or becomes too problematic. Tooth loss is mostly caused by caries and gumdiseases and these can be prevented with the right treatment. Preventive treatments include routineexaminations and hygiene therapy treatment, as well as professional cleaning and polishing.
Professional cleaning involves your general dentist removing accumulated plaque and tartar. Yourdentist will also show you better brushing techniques, recommend a more suitable toothbrush, andtell you how to floss properly so you can remove plaque yourself. This will keep your oral health at agood level and reduce the need to visit the dentist.
Preventive treatments are only successful when the patient works effectively with the dentist.
Let your kids grow up with healthy teeth! Our dentists will teach your child how to maintain dentalhygiene through play. Thanks to regular visits, you will prevent dental caries and ensure that yourchildren grow up with healthy teeth. Pedodontics or pediatric dentistry represents the part ofdentistry that deals with the treatment of children’s teeth. The main purpose of pedodontics is toprevent caries in primary and first permanent teeth. Many children have tooth decay in their earlyyears. Because the enamel of primary teeth is very little resistant. This, together with poor oralhygiene, leads to multiple caries lesions. There are a few fairly simple rules that children can adoptfrom an early age and can help prevent cavities. These are adequate oral hygiene, a healthy diet andregular visits to the dentist.
Treatment of primary teeth is extremely important. Primary teeth make room for the permanentteeth that will emerge later, directing their eruption, ensuring proper chewing function and adequatebone development. Inflammation in primary teeth can cause staining and anomalies in the enamel ofsubsequent teeth.If your child meets the dentist for the first time because of a pain caused by severetooth decay, he may carry his “dentist fear” even in adulthood. For this reason, it would be beneficialfor the child to undergo a mental preparation in the dental clinic and the whole environment fromthe age of 2, and then to repeat the visit every 6 months, even if there is no reason.
Tooth decay is one of the most common diseases of modern man. Fluorine is an important tool forpreventing caries, protecting tooth enamel and making it more resistant. It is a completely painlesspreventive application and is applied to primary and permanent teeth in order to preserve healthytooth tissue for a longer time. Fluorine reduces the incidence of caries and supports the repair of theinitial caries lesion. In the dental clinic, fluorine is mostly used in the form of a liquid, gel or polish tocoat the teeth.
Dental sealants are the method of coating the recesses on the surfaces of primary teeth withfluorine-containing materials and some adhesives. In this way, the recesses become shallower andfood residues that will form bacterial plaque cannot settle in these recesses. With dental sealants, wereduce the risk of caries, which is very important in the early stages of mixed teething in children.This application can also be applied in primary molars. Dental sealants are not a permanent methodor dental filling. In this method, no holes are made in the teeth.
