Oral and Dental Health

Near East University Faculty of Dentistry Hospital has eight departments providing oral and dental health services.

Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology Department
Panoramic radiography, periapical radiography, occlusal radiography and cephalometric radiographs are used to assist in the examinations in our clinic.

In addition, if necessary, early diagnosis of intraoral lesions, 3-dimensional evaluation of the existing bone structure in the implanted location, the root of the impacted wisdom teeth in the upper jaw sinus and mandible in the lower jaw through the vessels and nerves through the assessment of possible bleeding, and in order to eliminate the risks such as numbness due to nerve damage, conical beam computed tomography is used.

Periodontology Department
Periodontology is the department that gives information about the clinical and microscopic structure of the hard and soft tissues surrounding the teeth, the diseases that affect these tissues and their treatments and application of these treatments.

Gingival bleeding is the first symptom of periodontal diseases that are common in the community. The gums become red, swollen and shiny. Along with these symptoms, bad breath, bleeding in the gums, itching sensation, and tenderness can also be seen. Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease caused by the destruction of the teeth and supporting tissues. The main cause of periodontitis is bacterial plaque and it can be treated mechanically. In addition, systematic, genetic and environmental factors also contribute to the development of the disease. Periodontal diseases can affect people of different ages. Often, the disease can progress insidiously without causing any complaints. The main purpose of periodontal treatment is to saving seemingly unhealthy teeth. Different treatments are applied according to the type of disease. These can be summarized as oral hygiene education, dental calculus cleaning, root surface flattening in advanced cases and surgical operations.

Restorative Dentistry Department
In the restorative dentistry clinic, in addition to preventive caries treatments,the treatment of teeth that have been damaged due to trauma and abrasion is performed by using the latest techniques and materials. The main objective is to maintain the physiological integrity of the teeth in a harmonious relationship with neighbouring hard and soft tissues during treatment.

The shape and position of the teeth are important for functionality and aesthetics. In our clinic, aesthetic (cosmetic) dentistry, tooth colour restorations and tooth whitening treatments are carried out with care to protect healthy tooth tissues. It is known that tooth colour is as important for an individual's self-confidence as well as for an aesthetic appearance. Whitening treatments for teeth with colour changes are applied in our clinic.

Endodontics Department
Endodontic treatment (also known as root canal treatment) has wide clinical applications such as endodontic surgery, and the treatment of fractured or traumatized teeth. Root canal treatment is one of the most common treatments in dentistry. It is possible to recover the tooth pulp (composed of a dense connective tissue containing nerve, vascular and lymphatic elements) that has been damaged for various reasons by root canal treatment.

Although the treatment concept consists of three stages, some treatments may be completed in a single session, while others may require multiple appointments. The degree of infection of the tooth and the difficulty of the case are important parameters which determine the duration of treatment. It has a very high success rate when performed with the right techniques under the right conditions.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is an area of expertise aiming to increase the quality of life of patients by providing aesthetic and functional integrity of soft and hard tissue,treating diseases, injuries and defects related to mouth, teeth, jaw and face.

In our clinic, congenital or developmental jaw-face deformities, jaw-face traumas, infections and cancers are treated. In addition to the procedures that require special expertise, general treatments such as the extraction of enlarged and impacted teeth, laser surgery, cyst tumour surgeries and treatment of jaw joint disorders are also performed. Additionally, cosmetic surgery, bone grafts and particularly dental implants are among the most commonly used applications in our clinics for providing function and aesthetics.

Prosthodontics Department
Prosthodontic treatment includes applications for the loss of function of the teeth and adjacent tissues as a result of various reasons. These functions concern chewing, speaking and aesthetics.

In our clinic, there are applications for almost every age group.

Our field makes use of developing technologies, materials and innovations in many ways. In other words, nanotechnology, which is a necessity of the space age, takes advantage of all the possibilities of computer-aided digital technology.

Based on the advances in implantology, the most effective approach to the most serious maxillofacial defects is possible in our department.

In the paediatric clinic, all kinds of dental treatments and preservative applications for infants, children and adolescents are provided, as well as oral dental health services for children requiring special attention. In our clinic, children with physical and mental disabilities are offered behavioural control, conscious sedation and preventive and conservative treatments. In small children who have high anxiety levels, who are disabled or unable to communicate, all procedures from general anaesthesia to the treatment of decayed teeth and preventive treatments are performed in a single session, thus preventing discomfort for both the family and the child during the treatment period. In addition, in our clinic, trainings related to oral health of children are also provided for the prospective mothers.

Orthodontics Department
In the Orthodontics Department, treatment and the normal course of developmental disorders that occur in teeth, jaws and face, as well as bite and jaw problems of teeth are treated. It also deals with speech problems, syndromes and cleft lip and palate. Orthodontics corrects existing disorders by using brackets and arc wires, which are glued to the teeth, and cause no pain in the mouth.

In the second session after your first detailed examination and collection of the necessary data in the orthodontics department, special treatment alternatives are determined for you by your doctor. In this way, the treatment options are selected specifically for you and the right method is chosen.
