About the department

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Dentistry at the Memorial Sisli Hospital Istanbul offers the full range of services in the area of its ​​specialization. Thanks to innovative techniques, long experience of medical staff and advanced equipment, the department provides both prevention and treatment of diseases of the teeth and oral cavity in adults and children. To ensure maximum comfort, all procedures are performed under anesthesia. The department's doctors use in their work only the most modern materials, which meet high quality standards. The specialists do not use amalgam fillings. The department strictly adheres to safety and sterility standards. The clinic also offers preliminary computer-assisted stimulation of the final treatment result, which is a significant advantage for patients who want to reshape their teeth, correct the occlusion or restore the dentition. This approach ensures the beauty and health of the smile for many years. The department is headed by Dr. med. Dr. dent. Aslı Tapan.

The special feature of the department is the use of a portable dental unit. Thanks to this system, the department's doctors carry out treatment of oral diseases in non-transportable patients, elderly, people with disabilities, as well as provide medical care to patients who cannot visit the clinic. The treatment is carried out under local and general anesthesia. General anesthesia is preferred for people who have a fear of dental procedures and for patients with mental disabilities.

Thanks to the modern infrastructure and long experience of the personnel, the department provides treatment not only to adults, but also to young patients. The treatment of oral diseases in children requires special training and a specialized approach, since it is very important to establish trust relationships with the child and avoid the development of phobia associated with dental procedures. The department's dentists carry out preventive measures, which are aimed at the normal development of the jaws and teeth during the growth of the child's body. The department also practices fissure sealing, which in turn allows the doctors to keep milk teeth healthy, prevent the development of oral infections, and increase the resistance of the enamel to caries. It is very important to carry out the necessary preventive procedures with the development of the first molars, since the health of permanent teeth in adulthood depends on this.

The departments offer their patients not only treatment and prevention of dental health problems, but also aesthetic procedures aimed at correcting the occlusion, color and shape of teeth. Many patients visit the department for the placement of porcelain veneers, lumineers, deep cleaning, and lamination of tooth enamel. The department uses laser systems for most of the manipulations. The department's doctors use this technology for whitening, eliminating hypersensitivity of teeth, treating gums, root canals, teeth cleaning and other procedures. This system has proven itself in clinical trials in the United States. Its advantage lies in the fact that during the procedure the tooth enamel and fillings are not damaged, while the patient does not feel any pain.

The department carries out dental implantation, total and partial dental prosthetics. Full denture prosthetics involves the placement of implants using all-on-4 or all-on-6 technology. The materials from which the implants are made almost completely imitate natural teeth. After the procedure, the patient does not feel any discomfort, which significantly improves the quality of his life. Partial prosthetics allow the doctor to restore chewing function and eliminate the imperfections of the patient's smile by filling the gaps between the teeth. Many patients visit the department for elimination of speech defects caused by missing teeth. Partial prosthetics are perfect for patients with contraindications for implantation.

The department also specializes in the treatment of maxillofacial injuries caused by accidents, after surgical treatment of facial pathologies, as well as congenital deformities. In cooperation with specialists from other medical fields, the department's doctors treat fractures of varying severity and correct the shape of the jaws.
