Oral Cancers

The incidence of oral cancers is twice as high in men than in women. Oral cancers are not very painful and progress very quickly. In cases where it is not diagnosed early, it can cause both loss of function and mouth deformities. The most effective method for prevention of oral cancers is regular dental check-up.

Jaw Cyst

They are pathological formations that occur especially in wisdom teeth and root parts of decayed teeth that have not been treated for a long time. Tumors may occur if the cysts formed in the bone are not treated for a long time and spread to very large areas.

Bone Graft

The success of dental implants is directly related to the amount of bone around the implant. Bone loss may have developed due to many different reasons, but the developing technology allows us to increase the amount of bone around the implant with the patient’s own bone grafts or artificial bone grafts.

With the radiographic techniques performed, it can be determined whether a graft will be used before the operation.

Sinus Lift (Sine Lift)

In the upper jaw, there are spaces at the ends of the roots of the molars, which we call sinuses. These spaces have many tasks, from adjusting the resonance of the sound to reducing the weight of the head.

In dentistry, in cases where the bone is insufficient during implant construction, bone augmentation is applied to this area to increase the bone level and implant can be applied.

Radiology

What is a dental x-ray?

In addition to the part of the tooth that appears in the mouth, the part that remains in the bone is also important in diagnosis and treatment. X-rays are important in the treatment of an existing condition, as well as in the early diagnosis of a problem that does not cause discomfort.

Are dental x-rays harmful?

With the replacement of digital x-ray devices with film x-ray devices, the amount of dose administered has decreased significantly. Especially thanks to digital panoramic devices, all teeth can be evaluated at once and with very little dose application.
