An interview with Dt. Koray
What is your experience with international patients?
10 years of dentistry experience and the team of experts, Turkey as well as Europe, America, we provide the highest level of treatment facilities to patients coming to our clinic from the Middle East and Africa.
Our goal is to provide the best dental function and aesthetics to our patients in the shortest time. We bring the highest technology to our patients in the fastest way with our young and dynamic staff. In addition to the treatments for our guests, we also undertake details such as accommodation and transportation.
What do you love about your job?
We have a very tiring and challenging profession. But when our treatment is over, it is good for me to see the patient off at my clinic with a sincere smile, and this satisfies me a lot.
Why do you think international patients prefer you?
Because we are sincere, this is what our guests like most: a warm welcome, a friendly conversation with their doctor, and personal treatment planning. The satisfaction of our patients is essential for us. We make the most accurate treatment planning that will make them the happiest in line with the wishes of our patients. We also know that your time is precious. It is our working method to reach the best result in the shortest time with high-quality products.
What treatments do patients most often ask?
Our patients coming from abroad mostly demand the implant treatment that we apply in cases of dental deficiency.
We prepare partial and sometimes full ceramic teeth on the implants according to the needs of the patient. The technology of implants is gradually changing now. In the past, after placing the implant in the jaw bone, we had to wait at least three months to apply the teeth on it.
Thanks to the implants produced with the latest technology we use, we can load the teeth on the day we place the implant, and this provides a significant advantage of the time for our patients coming from abroad.
What are the most common cases?
I like implant surgery cases the most. Lack of teeth is a condition that lowers the standard of living and reduces self-confidence. Regaining the aesthetic and eating function of my patients who cannot chew adequately or laugh as they wish makes me forget all my tiredness.
What specialties in the clinic are the most demanded?
Since our patients coming from abroad demand more implants and, therefore, prosthetic treatment, our oral surgeon and prosthetic specialist friends are more interested in them. Apart from this, we work routinely with our friends who have been trained in all branches of dentistry in our clinic.
Does dental implant work?
I can say that dental implants started a new period in dentistry. Thanks to this technology, we rarely use the movable prostheses we used before. In the past, we had to bridge the neighboring teeth with significant abrasions to complete the missing tooth.
Thanks to the implants, we can restore only the part with missing teeth. With these advantages, implants provide us with a more effective way of gaining the chewing function of the patient and offer quite conservative treatment options. It gives the patient a second chance to laugh and eat comfortably. A method like a miracle.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
We use dental implants in situations where we want to restore dental deficiency. The most important advantage is that they can regain the chewing function in the most effective way since they are stable.
Thanks to these systems, the use of removable dentures, which the patient can wear and remove, has been reduced a lot. At the same time, we also use dental implants to increase the retention of the prosthesis in cases where we have to use removable dentures.
Dental implants can serve our patients for many years, thanks to the correct surgical technique, proper prosthetic procedure, and good oral hygiene provided by the patient. It is a valuable alternative to bridge dentures in a single tooth deficiency. In such cases, we need to make large amounts of abrasion from the teeth in front and behind of missing teeth.
Thanks to the implants, we can restore missing teeth without damaging neighboring teeth. In this respect, although it may seem like an aggressive treatment for patients as it requires a surgical procedure, it is a highly conservative treatment option that protects healthy tissues.
- Dental Implants behave and look like natural teeth.
- Dental Implants can last lifelong.
- Dental Implants prevent bone loss.
- Dental Implants can help keep you free of gum disease.
- Dental Implants can prevent facial sagging and premature aging
What are the benefits of veneers?
- Natural appearance
- Gum tissue tolerates porcelain veneers well
- Porcelain veneers resist stains and can be whiter than your natural teeth color
- Veneers don’t require as much reshaping of your real teeth as crowns do
Metal-backed veneers: these are veneers that we still use very often, although they were made using an older technique. We can evaluate this type of prosthesis, which we prefer in the region of the posterior teeth, where there is little need for aesthetics, as temporary teeth in our clinic.
Zirconium veneers: their aesthetic properties are much higher than metal-supported veneers. They do not contain metal elements. We can define both the support and the aesthetic part as teeth made of porcelain. It is a treatment option that we frequently apply according to the patient’s preference.
Monolithic veneers: These are the veneers that give the best aesthetic results. Teeth are scraped from zirconium material in one piece. In this way, fine-tooth forms can be created. The high translucency properties allow them to imitate tooth tissue very well. Due to its superior aesthetic features, it is the most frequently preferred option for the anterior region teeth.
