Why not book a video call to discuss your treatment with our dentists face to face?
Missing teeth have many negative effects both for aesthetics and function.
If you are looking for an affordable option or you are unable to have implants because of diabetics or bone loss, removable dentures provide you a full mouth solution.
If you have enough teeth to be an anchor around your missing teeth, you can fix the gaps with bridges.
MISSING TEETH SOLUTIONS
As an alternative solution for situations where implants cannot be made, a bridge can be used to correct the missing tooth. The bridge may be preferred as an alternative to the implant in the following situations:
•Bone level not suitable for the implant
•Although there is bone, there is not enough space for the crown on the implant, the area is narrow
•The patient's preference to eliminate the missing tooth in a single trip
•Even if the price difference does not exceed 20%, the patient is price sensitive.
If the conditions are suitable for missing teeth, an implant is always recommended. Because:
•In the case of an implant, the enamel of the teeth next to the cavity is not cut.
•When the implant is made, the teeth can be cleaned with dental floss.
•The application of force to the bone by the implant keeps the bone alive
Bridges complement the functions of teeth in chewing and speaking, as well as giving patients a natural smile.
The presence of teeth that will allow the bridge on both sides of the gap is sufficient to fill the gap with the bridge.
Metal supported porcelain crowns and zirconium crowns are used for bridge treatment in our hospital.

The treatment takes around a week to complete; in other words, if we begin the procedure on Monday, it will usually be completed by the Friday or Saturday of the same week. Both of the procedures usually require between two to three visits.
Your temporary teeth will be fitted just after the file operation.
First appointment (Day 1): Filing down the tooth/teeth, which takes between two four hours, depending on condition of the teeth filed.
Second appointment (Day 5 or 6): Fitting the crown/veneer, which usually takes between one and two hours. However, if necessary, our dentist may schedule an additional appointment to complete the work.
Crowns can only be done over healthy or treated teeth. So if there is any gum disease problem, infected roots or decays these will be treated before the crowns are fitted. We will take an X-Ray and let you know about the supporting emergency treatments that you need. If you think that you would need additional treatments you should book 10 days to complete all of them in a visit.
REMOVABLE and PARTIAL DENTURES
Implant based All-on-4 treatment is the best way to fix an edentulous mouth but partial dentures are an alternatives options who can not able to have implant based treatments. Here you can see advantages of partial removable dentures:
A Natural Look & Longer Usage
Partial dentures can be fitted using metal hooks if required, offering the patient a natural smile. Modern dentures are both tougher and designed to last longer.
Just like natural teeth, dentures require routine care and maintenance. However, modern technology means they can be made from bacteria-resistant material, which reduces bacterial adhesion and reduces the risk of complications sometimes associated with free monomers.
Aesthetics & Function
Modern dentures can restore your smile and be an effective replacement for natural teeth, helping the patient enjoy not only all types of food but also clarity of speech.
Removable or partial dentures take 10-14 days to be done due to the type of denture. Please book a free consultation to find out exat treatment plan. Top and bottom full jaw removable dentures can be done in 10 days if there is no need to make any extractions. It takes 2 weeks in case of having an extraction.
One way to eliminate missing teeth is acrylic prostheses applied to the missing area or the full jaw.
This treatment, which provides aesthetic benefits by providing a full smile for patients who are not suitable for implant or bridge construction due to various reasons, and eliminates the lack of teeth with its functional benefits in chewing and speaking, is done with the help of a removable prosthesis that the patient can put on and take off.
Clinical Process in Removable Prosthesis Treatment
The first session continues with the spoon and pedestal procedures after the measurement. Then, the wax walls are prepared and the vertical dimension is determined in completely edentulous jaws and the bases for tooth alignment are sent to the laboratory together with the wax walls..
The other session is a gear rehearsal session. In this session, the patient's closure is controlled. After a fully functional closure is achieved, the bases are sent back to the laboratory for acryl reaction.
The next session is the finishing session. The patient's prostheses are put on and final arrangements are made. In the places that hit the palate of the patient, the prosthesis is delivered to the patient. The point to remember here is; If there are places that hit the patient after using their prosthesis for a while, the patient is told to come back to our hospital for a control session. If the patient has to go abroad, the patient is told to file the parts of the prosthesis with sandpaper.
Patients should definitely remove their removable prostheses before going to sleep at night. It is also very convenient to use a soft brush and soap for prosthesis cleaning. Patients should be told that they should not clean their dentures with abrasive toothpaste.
