About the Department of Dentistry at Rami Hospital Istanbul

The Department of Dentistry at the Rami Hospital Istanbul offers the full range of services in the prevention, prosthetics and treatment of dental and oral cavity diseases. The department has the most modern equipment, which allows the doctors to conduct accurate diagnostics, simulate the final treatment result prior to the procedure and ensure the most effective treatment. All the procedures are performed under anesthesia, which eliminates pain and discomfort. The department's dentists perform both filling and dental prosthetics, professional teeth cleaning and whitening. The department's medical staff strictly adheres to all modern treatment protocols and hygiene standards. The department employs a highly qualified team of specialists whose main goal is to provide the best result for their patients. The department is headed by Dr. med. Dr. dent. Mesut Altunay.

One of the main clinical focuses is dental implant placement. No matter if one tooth or the entire dentition are absent, the patient can count on the total restoration of his smile. The most popular type of prosthetics is all-on-4, all-on-5 and all-on-6 implantation techniques. Such an approach allows the doctors to completely restore the entire dentition by placing four, five or six implants, on which the tooth crown is attached. Whenever required, the dentists additionally perform sinus lifting, as it allows to increase the thickness of the bone tissue, and thereby ensure reliable fixation of the prostheses. A dental implant is a titanium screw with a special structure. In fact, it is the root of a new tooth. The implantation takes about 30-60 minutes, while the engraftment process lasts on average between 8 and 12 weeks. The final stage of dental implantation is the placement of a ceramic crown or the whole dentition. The department uses advanced implants of the Korean company OSSTEM, which has long experience in the manufacture of high-quality dental prostheses. Each patient who has undergone dental implantation in the department is provided with a lifetime implant warranty.

The patients often come to the department in order to restore the aesthetic appearance of their teeth. The department's dentists use an advanced technical base and modern materials, which allow them to restore the tooth and its natural beauty. In their work, the specialists use porcelain fillings, which are durable, natural looking, and also prevent the development of secondary caries. The color of the filling is selected individually, depending on the natural color of the patient's teeth. Teeth whitening is also a popular procedure, since diet and habits change the color of tooth enamel with age. When performing the procedure, the dentists use modern materials and equipment, which allow the patients to return the original whiteness and healthy appearance of their teeth. The procedure takes up to one hour and allows the patient to maintain excellent results for 24 months.

The department's competence also includes preventive dentistry. Among the most popular procedures are fissure sealing and tartar removal. Fissures are natural dental pits on the surface of the tooth. The essence of the procedure is to seal the fissure in order to prevent the accumulation of food debris, and therefore the development of caries. The procedure involves the use of such anti-caries substances as fluoride and calcium. This procedure will help preserve teeth for many years and avoid frequent visits to dentists. In addition to fissure sealing, it is also worth noting the removal of calculus. Tartar is a natural deposit, which accelerates the growth of bacteria, and therefore the development of problems in the oral cavity. Among the indications for this procedure are bad breath and bleeding gums. These formations can contribute to the development of other, more serious diseases. A session of the procedure lasts about 30 minutes and, if necessary, it can be performed under local anesthesia. Teeth sensitivity may occur within 2-3 days after the procedure. The tooth enamel will be completely restored in a week, and the patient can enjoy the health of his teeth and gums.
