Pedodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the oral and dental health of children who apply to the clinic during infancy and adolescence, aims to protect their milk and permanent teeth healthily, to monitor the development of the jaw-face region, and to treat the problems caused by caries, trauma, hereditary and similar factors in these teeth.

The first oral and dental examinations of the children who apply to the clinic, preventive applications for the prevention of tooth decay, treatment restoration and withdrawal of excessively damaged milk, and continuous teeth that require treatment, treatment, and follow-up of dental injuries caused by trauma are carried out.

Pediatric patients who are too young to adapt to the treatments required in the department of pedodontics and/or who are not able to adapt to the treatment and groups of children who are anxious and fearful, who have a systemic disease, and who need special care are treated with sedation.

Department of Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of irregularities of teeth and jaws in and relative to each other, developmental and acquired anomalies in the jaw face area. Dental deformity, incompatibility in jaw relations and closing disorders, growth and developmental disorders, early preventive and stopping orthodontic treatments, cleft lip clefts and treatments, sleep apnea treatment, temporomandibular joint therapy, orthognathic surgical treatment, and reinforcement therapies are the operational areas of orthodontics. Orthodontic treatments are performed using fixed apparatus and transparent plaques such as moving apparatus, non-oral apparatus applications, lidded, non-lidded, and lingual brackets, orthodontic arc wires, screws, orthodontic mini implants.

Caries and gum diseases caused by an inability to clean the teeth adequately due to the inconsistency of the teeth can cause tooth loss and damage to periodontal tissues, leading to a decrease in the quality of life of the individual. Orthodontic treatments ensure that the health and maintenance of the teeth are protected and maintained at the same time that the smile improves and gets better.

Department of Oral, Dental and Jaw Surgery

It is a branch of dentistry in which soft and hard tissues in the mouth, jaw, and face regions are the medical and surgical treatment of aesthetic, functional problems caused by congenital and acquired disorders, caused by all kinds of pathological causes such as infection, trauma and cysts and tumors.

Tooth extraction, abscess treatment, embedded tooth extraction, apical resection, pre-prosthetic surgical procedures such as biopsy, vestibuloplasty, sinus lift, alveoli correction, nerve recurrence, cyst treatments, dental implant applications, surgery of hard and soft tissue tumors concerning the mouth and jaw, tissue grafting, conservative and surgical treatments of jaw fractures, lip-palate cleft surgery, orthognathic surgery, temporomandibular joint disorders, conservative and surgical treatments,  diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases and oral lesions are the fields of study of the department of oral dental jaw surgery.

Department of Oral, Dental and Jaw Radiolog

Dentistry is the branch where the first examinations of patients are performed, oral and maxillofacial tissues and organs are systematically examined, all physiological and pathological changes of these structures are evaluated clinically and radiographically, diagnosed and pre-treatment planning is carried out.

Current and technological imaging methods such as dental volumetric tomography, panoramic, cephalometric X-rays, ultrasound, MR, are applied in this section.

Department of Endodontics

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that concerns the vascular, nerve, and connective tissue at the core of the tooth and deals with the treatment of diseases and injuries that occur in the tissues surrounding the root of the tooth. Etiology, epidemiology, histopathology, microbiology and clinical diagnosis and treatment methods, prevention and prognosis of pulp and periapical diseases constitute the fields of the study of endodontics.

Endodontic treatments include capping and amputation treatments for the protection of tooth vitality in teeth with reversible pulp disease, and canal treatment to the relevant teeth(s) in teeth that cannot be preserved or have lost their vitality due to infection.

Department of Periodontology

Periodontology is a branch of dentistry aimed at maintaining the health of hard and soft tissues around implants placed in a place of teeth or lost teeth, and for the diagnosis and treatment of their diseases.

Periodontal diseases including gingivitis and periodontitis are serious chronic bacterial infections that affect the bone supporting the gums and teeth, which can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Periodontal diseases are caused by sticky, colorless bacterial plaque, which often occurs constantly on the teeth due to poor oral hygiene. However, factors such as smoking/tobacco use, genetic factors, pregnancy and puberty, stress, diabetes, medications, bad habits such as teeth tightening or teeth grinding, inadequate and unbalanced nutrition also affect periodontal health. Prevention of diseases in periodontal tissues, diagnosis and treatment of them when they occur are carried out with surgical and non-surgical applications are among the interests of periodontology. In addition, all kinds of applications for the prevention of gum diseases, which constitute the most common disease group, are one of the most important areas of interest of periodontology.

In addition, all preventive approaches to the prevention of tooth decay are of interest.

Repair of substance losses in rotten teeth, correction of form and deformities in teeth, restoration of broken teeth, closing gaps between teeth (diastemas) are ensured by using adhesive and minimally invasive techniques and CAD/CAM systems to meet health, aesthetic, phonetic, and functional needs. Over again, current and technological developments such as teeth whitening are used in physiological and pathological tooth coloring. In addition, preventive approaches including fluoride application to prevent dental diseases, minimize the risk of caries and prevent enamel loss are also of the operational practices of the department.
