About the department

The department of oral and dental disease at Memorial Sisli Hospital Istanbul prevents and treats dental and oral cavity diseases in adults and children. The peculiarity of the department is the use of a portable dental unit, thanks to which the doctors of the department treat dental diseases in non-transportable patients, the elderly, and the disabled, and also provide medical care to patients who cannot visit the clinic. In addition, the clinic offers a preliminary computer simulation of the final result of the treatment, which is a significant advantage for patients who want to change the shape of their teeth, correct their bite or restore the dentition. This approach ensures the beauty and health of a smile for many years. Dentists perform all procedures under local or general anaesthesia to ensure maximum patient comfort.

The department offers its patients the treatment and prevention of dental health problems and aesthetic procedures aimed at correcting the bite, colour and shape. Many patients turn to the department to install porcelain veneers, lumineers, deep cleaning, and lamination of tooth enamel. For most manipulations, doctors use laser systems. The department also performs dental implantation and total and partial dentures. A separate specialization of the doctor is the treatment of maxillofacial injuries resulting from accidents after surgical treatment of facial pathologies and congenital deformities.
