Tooth whitening is the removal of discoloration in the enamel and dentin layer of the tooth. This method, which is applied with tooth bleaching drug, is done by shining a laser light on the bleaching drug applied to the teeth by the dentist.
If all the teeth in the mouth have been lost, total-full dentures are made. In recent years, full dentures made by placing implants in the jawbone and supported by them now give patients the feeling of chewing with their own teeth and are often preferred for this reason.
It is a type of prosthesis made for patients with one or more missing teeth in their mouth. Partial Prostheses; They are divided into two as toothed-ending partial dentures and edentulous-ending (free) partial dentures.
In the absence of one or more teeth, it is the process of reducing the adjacent teeth and filling the gaps by taking support from the special coatings that come to them.
It is the most common and preventive method among the treatments of gum diseases. In tartar cleaning, tartar and tartar, also called plaque, are removed. Plaque is a sticky substance and is mostly made up of bacteria. As the plaque hardens over time, tartar forms. Plaque and tartar adhere to the tooth surface, especially to the root surface below the gingival margin. Root surfaces need to be leveled, as plaque tends to adhere to the rough surface. In this process, all tartar is cleaned and irregularities on the root surface are removed.
Pedodontics (Pediatric Dentistry)
The purpose of pediatric dental health; To prevent the formation of caries, to treat the initial caries, to keep the faster decaying milk teeth in the mouth for as long as necessary. Early extracted milk teeth cause crowding in permanent teeth.
Under the enamel and dentin layers of the tooth, there is a section called “pulp” where the vessel and nerve package that provides the vitality of the tooth is located. This part, which is called the “pulp chamber” in the crown of the tooth, extends to the end of the tooth roots. In case of inflammation of the pulp for any reason, the nerve of the tooth should be removed, the canals should be sterilized and then filled.
The cause of caries, gingival diseases and dental calculus is poor cleaning of food residue and bacterial plaque. Teeth should be brushed at least twice a day, especially before going to bed. The brush is placed on the teeth and gums at an angle of 45 degrees. Each tooth is brushed for 10 seconds with small circular movements.
The chewing surfaces of the teeth are indented. These pits and mounds are called pits and fissures. These areas are very narrow and are often where cavities begin due to the inability to get trapped and cleared. A special fluid filling material is used in order to prevent the accumulation of food and microorganisms in these areas and accordingly caries.
Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and prevents mineral loss. In addition, it provides the strengthening (remineralization) of the weakened tooth enamel, which has started caries formation. Fluoride also inhibits acid production by bacteria that cause tooth decay. When a balanced diet and good oral hygiene are combined with fluoride, the risk of dental caries is further reduced.
