1What is the best way to brush my teeth?
The best way to brush your teeth is holding the toothbrush at an angle of 45 degrees, with the bristles aimed at the gum line. The tiny area between the teeth and the gum is a great spot for bacteria and plaque to build up, so it is important to brush this area well. When the brush is at the correct angle, it’s just a gentle back and forth, brushing only one or two teeth at a time. There is a fine line between brushing too hard and not brushing hard enough. The aim of brushing is for the bristles to reach out and cleanse the gap between the teeth to remove the soft plaque and prevent its build-up. Brush all the teeth in order, on the inside and outside. You will find it easier if you can see what you are doing in front of a mirror. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day, using the correct brushing technique to avoid damaging the teeth and gums.
2How should I floss my teeth?
Flossing has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of gum disease. You should ideally floss your teeth every day; if possible, before you brush your teeth to clean the gap between your teeth where bacteria grow and plaque builds. The key to flossing is in the way you hold it. Wrap the floss tightly around the middle finger of each hand, locked onto each finger. Use a gentle sawing motion against the side of each tooth, moving the floss backward and forward. If you find this difficult, as your dentist for a practical demonstration. Your dentist will suggest the best hygiene methods will show you how to use them.
3Which toothbrush and toothpaste should I choose?
A toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles is usually best, and an electric toothbrush is especially good if you find a proper brushing technique is difficult to get a handle on. Select a toothpaste that contains fluoride which will combine with minerals in your saliva to toughen your tooth enamel and help prevent decay.


1What materials are used for dental bridges?
Bridges can be constructed from gold alloys, non-precious alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. We primarily use porcelain for our dental bridge procedures.
2What's the difference between dental bridges and crowns?
Sometimes, people use the terms dental bridge and crown interchangeably. The reality is they have different functions. Dental crowns are prosthetic caps that are placed over broken, chipped, or worn teeth. They are effective in strengthening the teeth and preventing tooth decay. Dental bridges are designed to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
3Can I fill a gap caused by a missing tooth with just one crown?
A crown all by itself, cannot replace a missing tooth. The crown refers to a dental cap that looks and feels like a tooth but it needs to be supported inside and beneath the gum line by either an existing and prepared tooth, a partial tooth with a post or a dental implant.
4Do root canals need a crown?
Needing a crown after a root canal depends highly on the location of the tooth in the mouth. Teeth towards the back of the mouth like molars and premolars are needed more for chewing, and generally require crowns, where incisors or canines which aren't needed for chewing don't always require crowns.
5Are dental crowns better than fillings?
One difference between a crown vs filling is that a crown is much more durable for teeth with a large biting surface. Repeated pressure from chewing or from habitual clenching can cause fillings on the biting surfaces of molars to chip or come loose. A crown, being a single unbroken surface from gum line to gum line, is designed to take much more force over a longer period of time.
6Do dental crowns look different than normal teeth?
Dental crowns play two important roles in your mouth. First and foremost, they completely restore the function of your tooth which means you can close your teeth and chew without pain or discomfort or without having to compensate by chewing on one side. Secondarily (but also important!) crowns are designed to blend in with your natural teeth. That means they are coloured and contoured to match your aesthetic. In fact, sometimes people forget altogether which tooth is the crown.
7What is a dental post?
A post isn’t quite a dental implant (which is surgically implanted in the jaw bone) but it is exactly what it sounds like: a medical-grade post that may be cemented into a prepared root-canal to reinforce the base and core of a dental crown. Dental posts are only used if there isn’t enough healthy tooth left over to reliably hold a crown.
8What is a dental implant?
Today, dental implants have become the most preferable and successful treatment option for restoring the function and aesthetics for missing teeth; They are artificial tooth roots made of titanium material. Since dental implants, which are generally in the form of screws, titanium, their biological compatibility with the jawbone is very high. This harmony occurs by binding the bone cells to the titanium surface. This important biological relationship is called osteointegration.
9Can implants be applied to every patient?
Implants are commonly used for patients suffering from tooth loss over many years. The general health status of the patient should be evaluated prior to carrying out the treatment. Patients who are at risk of bleeding, infection due to systemic diseases, who cannot provide adequate care and whose jaw bones are not suitable for treatment should be directed to prosthetic treatments other than implants. Apart from patients with these issues, implant treatment can be applied to any patient at any age whose general health is good, has sufficient bone and has completed bone development.
10In which cases are implants recommended in dental treatments?
They can be applied in edentulous lower-upper jaws, for patients whose posterior region end without teeth due to loss of molars, in case of a single tooth loss or any area with tooth deficiency such as large toothless gaps.
11Can I have an implant immediately after tooth extraction?
During tooth extraction, implant applications can be performed immediately, this procedure is called immediate implant surgery. For the process to be successful, the bone and infection status of the extraction area should be carefully examined. If it is not placed immediately, the patient can have an implant after 6-8 weeks of bone healing. The removal of tooth deficiency in a short time after the extraction will prevent both the preservation of the existing bone and the slippage that may occur especially with female patients. The fact that the roots of the posterior molars are anatomically in contact with the sinus, especially in the upper jaw, accelerates the bone resorption after extraction, leading to the need for bone addition. For cases where the bone is insufficient, weak or has been lost due to resorption, bone addition is necessary during the surgery to support the weaker section of the jaw and restore it to the required amount for implant treatment. Bone addition is referred to as bone grafting or sinus lifting in dentistry.
12Is implant treatment a difficult and painful treatment?
No, it isn’t. The surgical procedure is performed painless with the aid of local anaesthesia. Each patient has a different anatomy and metabolism in terms of difficulty. Implant treatment and planning for each patient may be different. Depending on the bone structure and strength, treatment methods may vary. Informing the patient in detail and accurately by the physician before the treatment will ensure that this process is carried out comfortably.
13How long do implants last?
As long as there is a healthy bone tissue and gingiva around the implant, the implant maintains its continuity. Regular checks with your doctor and after the construction phase of the implants is completed, a good oral hygiene and care of the patient will prolong the life of the implant. Physiological bone loss due to ageing is one of the negative factors affecting the lifespan of implants. In researches, we see that smoking plays an active role in gum diseases and bone loss, which affects implant durability.
14How Many Dental Implants are needed for the treatment?
The number of Implants needed will depend on the number of missing teeth you have. Dental Implants are used to replace as many teeth as necessary. The recommended maximum number of implants per jaw is 6. 12 or 14 teeth(crowns) per jaw(based on your dentition and jaw structure) will then be added on top of the implants. Each implant can support up to 3 teeth(crowns), however the dental experts usually advise and plan for 2 teeth to be used for each implant in order to reduce the amount of pressure on the jaw and eliminate any future issues which may occur. Not every tooth will need to be replaced by dental implants.
15Is implant treatment expensive?
In comparison to other treatments, implant treatment is higher in cost due to the materials and treatment methods used. The number of implants and the type of prosthetic treatment applied also have an affect on the total cost. However, increasing the quality of life and providing longer-term solutions for patients’ dental health make implant treatment essential for patients and physicians today.
16How Long Do Dental Implants Take
2 separate 1-week visits are needed for dental implant treatment. This is necessary for the implant to fuse with the jawbone and settle. It will take approximately 3 months after the first visit. If Bone Grafting or Sinus Lifting are necessary, the healing process may take up to 6 months. If suitable, temporary dentures or crowns will be provided at the end of the first visit. Permanent crowns are designed after the abutments are applied during the second visit. The crowns will be fixed once the pressure and bite are correct, making sure they are comfortable as well as aesthetically great.
