About the department

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Dentistry at the Dentram Dental Clinics Istanbul offers the full range of services for the treatment of diseases of the teeth, gums and temporomandibular joint. Of particular interest to the department are implantology, placement of veneers and occlusion correction using the innovative Invisalign system. The department also admits children between the ages of 0 and 13 years old for treatment. The department has an excellent medical and technical base, sanitary and hygienic standards are strictly met here, as well as an individual approach is provided to each patient. The clinic is one of the best in Istanbul and Turkey, and also regularly admits patients from foreign countries for treatment. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Dr. dent. Serhat Yalcin.

The dental team is famous for exceptional qualifications in the field of dental implantology. Dental implants are an excellent treatment for patients who have lost one or more teeth. In addition, this is the only method of restoration not only the aesthetic appearance of the tooth, but also its functions – a dental implant is placed into the jawbone, carries a full load, participates in the chewing process, prevents facial deformation, etc. The implants are placed under local anesthesia, while the procedure itself takes no more than 10 minutes. However, after the procedure, it takes 1.5 to 2 months for the implant to fully osseointegrate with jaw tissue. After implantation, a crown imitating a natural tooth is placed on the implant.

The department's specialists prefer to use ceramic and zirconia dental implants, which are of the highest quality and longest service life. The department practices all types of implantation, including two-stage implantation, single-stage implantation with immediate loading, and single-stage dental implantation. Medical specialists also carry out the placement of zygomatic implants. Zygomatic implants can be used when the amount of bone tissue in the upper jaw is insufficient for the placement of the implant. The main advantage of this method is that there is no need for sinus lift (bone augmentation).

The department also uses the all-on-4 prosthetic technique. This technique is the optimal solution in cases when the teeth are absolutely absent on the lower jaw. If there are diseased or pathologically movable teeth on the jaw, they must be removed. The advantage of this treatment option is the single-stage implantation. The prosthesis is attached immediately, which allows the patient to avoid wearing removable structures, to start smiling almost instantly and to eat normally, without feeling pain and discomfort. The significant advantages of the method include the absence of the need to preliminarily perform a sinus lift, as well as the maximum accuracy of positioning of implants due to 3D therapy planning.

Such dental services as the placement of ceramic veneers and the correction of malocclusion using the innovative Invisalign system are especially popular in the clinical practice of the department as well. Veneers are thin onlays on the teeth that closely follow the outer surface of the tooth. They help to hide small and large defects (for example, chips, cracks, dental discoloration, etc.) of the surface of the teeth, thereby creating a healthy and beautiful smile. The Invisalign system provides correction of malocclusion using special transparent aligners. The Invisalign set consists of individual removable airliners, which are almost invisible on the teeth. The mouthguards need to be changed once every 2 weeks. During this period, the aligners move the teeth to the intended position, after which the patient switches to the next pair of aligners. The aligners are made individually, according to the developed treatment plan. The Invisalign technology is a comfortable and complete alternative to braces.
