Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Great experience using Flymedi to find the perfect surgeon and operation for me. Abud answered all my questions and helped so much!

Recommended For Simple Tooth Extraction

Simple tooth extractions are recommended for patients with heavily damaged teeth from trauma or cavities. The procedure is also recommended for patients with large root infections which cannot be safely treated in any other way. The procedure may also be recommended for patients with healthy wisdom teeth which need to be removed.

Overview

What is simple tooth extraction? Simple tooth extraction is one of the most common and possibly earliest types of dentistry procedures in the world. Since the field of dentistry became more advanced, simple tooth extractions are usually the last solution for patients with damaged teeth which cannot be treated by using restoration techniques such as dental bridges, tooth fillings or dental crowns.

Untreated root infections generally cause extensive tooth decay which leaves the tooth structure too weak for any other type of treatment – including root canal treatment. In these situations, the dentist will be forced to perform a simple tooth extraction in order to alleviate any swelling and pain the patient may experience.

In some cases, untreated root infections may affect nearby teeth as well, so a simple extraction of a tooth can also be considered a preventive measure.

Most adults will require a simple wisdom tooth extraction by the age of 30, even if the teeth are healthy.

Preparation

Patients may be required to have a set of dental X rays before undergoing simple tooth extraction. Any intake of anticoagulants, anti-inflammatory pills, and alcohol are prohibited for at least a few days before the procedure. Patients will also have to abstain from smoking and drinking alcohol for a week after the extraction takes place. 

How It Is Performed

This procedure is performed under local anesthesia instead of partial or general anesthesia. The dentist will begin by locating the affected tooth and checking the roots of the tooth. He will then start to make it loose by using a tool called an elevator before removing it entirely with the help of a forceps. Since this is a simple outpatient procedure, most patients will be able to go home right afterward.

Recovery

The recovery period after a simple tooth extraction is quite easy to manage. Patients can be prescribed painkillers to soothe any potential pain or discomfort. The total healing period lasts about 2 weeks, but the first few days are more important – patients need to abstain from smoking and drinking alcohol. Eating is also prohibited for several hours after the procedure.

Risks

Simple tooth extractions are very safe for the patient, but risks and complications can appear nonetheless. 

  • Infection - tooth extraction infections can develop if the root of the tooth is not removed entirely – in this situation, a different appointment with the dentist will be required.
  • Extraction dry socket – if the patient removes the blood clot from the gum after extracting the tooth a so-called “dry socket” will form, which can be quite painful.
  • Temporary nerve damage – this is the least frequent complication from a simple tooth extraction.

Side Effects

Side effects can include discomfort, light pain, and temporary numbness.

Faq

Simple Tooth Extraction VS Surgical Extraction?

The difference between the two is that with surgical extraction, the dentist will have to incise the patient's gum and possibly remove bone from the area.

 

What Is The Simple Tooth Extraction Healing Time?

The gum area should be fully healed in around two weeks.

 

When Will The Bleeding Stop?

The bleeding should stop in around 24 hours after the procedure was performed.
