About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Dentistry at the Memorial Bahçelievler Hospital Istanbul offers the full range of services for prevention, diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the teeth, gums, pathological oral and maxillofacial changes. The department deals with the treatment of patients of all age groups – from young children to the elderly. Such services as dental implantology, placement of ceramic veneers and teeth whitening are particularly popular in the department. All dental procedures are aimed at creating a healthy and beautiful smile. The clinical practice involves the use of the high-quality dental materials and pain medications, due to which the patient does not experience any pain during the treatment. The department is headed by Dr. med. Dr. dent. Esma Geckili.
The department has well-equipped dental rooms for therapeutic procedures of any complexity. The department's specialists actively use computer simulation programs, with the help of which the patient can see his future smile even before the treatment and decide whether this result meets his expectations.
The department's dental team successfully carries out the placement of dental implants to replace missing or severely damaged teeth, which cannot be restored with fillings, crowns or bridges. A dental implant consists of a root and a crown, due to which it imitates a natural tooth not only externally, but also functionally. The root of a dental implant is made of titanium, which has excellent biocompatibility with the bone tissues of the human body. In the case of bone tissue deficiency, dental implantation is preceded by bone tissue augmentation (sinus lift). Another advantage of dental implants is that they preserve the shape of the face, preventing lack of bone mass after losing teeth. In most cases, the dental implantation is carried out in two stages. The first stage is the implantation of the titanium root into the jawbone, after which it takes from 2 to 4 months for its osseointegration. After this time, the implant will be covered with a crown, imitating the shape of a natural tooth. All manipulations during implantation do not cause any painful sensations, since the procedure involves the use of anesthesia.
As of today, one of the most popular procedures for creation of a beautiful smile is the placement of veneers. Veneers are very thin plates that are glued to the outside of the tooth for the restoration of its aesthetics. They serve to change the color, size and shape of teeth. The department's specialists give preference to porcelain laminate veneers, which are of impeccable quality and have long service life.
The department's patients are also offered an innovative teeth whitening procedure using a special LED device and state-of-the-art whitening gel. The progressive whitening system used in clinical practice by the department's dentists has been approved after a number of clinical trials in the United States. It does not damage tooth enamel and fillings. The teeth whitening is absolutely painless.
A separate focus of the department's work is the treatment of dental diseases in children. The specially trained dentists carry out preventive examinations of young patients in order to exclude impaired tooth growth, malocclusion, caries development, etc. To increase the resistance of milk teeth to caries, teeth are coated with fluoride. The correction of malocclusion involves the use of both classic braces and the cutting-edge Invisalign system – special polycarbonate aligners for teeth. The aligners are transparent, so they look more aesthetically, and their effectiveness is not inferior to the classical braces.
