Specialized in: dentistry, oral surgery
The Department of Dentistry and Oral Surgery at the Medipol Mega University Hospital in Istanbul, headed by Prof. Dr. med. Sina Uçkan, specializes in the diagnosis and treatments of aesthetic dentistry, as well as dental treatment (e.g., root canal treatment, the beam fillings, porcelain inlays applications, etc.) and prosthetics (e.g., precision associated denture, laser engraved ceramic prostheses). Another focal point is maxillofacial surgery (surgical procedures in the mouth, dental implants, jaw joint problems, etc.).
An emphasis is on oral and maxillofacial surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries and deformities of the mouth, teeth and jaw. The Department under the lead of Prof. Dr. med. Sina Uçkan successfully treats such diseases and abnormalities as cysts, tumors, teeth and jaw fractures; further options are removal or preservation of teeth, retained within the jawbone, correction of hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity for further prosthesis. In addition, experienced specialists of the Medipol Mega University Hospital in Istanbul also treat congenital and acquired maxillofacial deformities, cleft lip-palate, chewing function disorders and asthetic disorders, caused by malpositioning of the upper or lower jaw.
Another focal point of the Medipol Mega University Hospital in Istanbul is Implantology. In the Department, implantations are carried out under local or general anesthesia, in case one or more teeth are missing. The time for osseointegration depends on the density of the patient’s jawbone and is on average from 6 to 12 months. After the osseointegration, the implants are restored either with a removable or with a fixed prosthesis. Apart from their functional and aesthetic importance, implants also prevent bone loss associated with the lack of teeth and are a solid support for the form and structure of the jawbone. This procedure can be applied for each patient with an appropriate general health condition. The success of implantation is increased through the correct planning, performing of the procedure under sterile conditions as well as strict adherence to oral hygiene instructions.
The Department of Dentistry and Oral Surgery at the Medipol Mega University Hospital in Istanbul also includes pedodontics. In this field, the specially trained physicians of the Department offer the following options: protective treatment for milk and permanent teeth, treatment of caries in milk and permanent teeth, protection of tooth-free spaces in order to avoid crowding and possible impacted teeth after an early tooth extraction.
