Long waiting times in UK…

Because of long waiting times in UK hospitals due to Covid19, I hit upon the idea of having my bilateral hernia surgery done while on a 2-week holiday in Antalya. After making inquiries through Yasmin, I had a short but comprehensive consultation with an eminent surgeon Prof Alihan Gürkan and my operation was scheduled for a day halfway through my stay in Antalya. It went well with keyhole surgery, I stayed in overnight and was discharged the next day, which gave me 6 days to recover before my flight home to Scotland. Yasmin kept in touch throughout, making sure I had transport to and from the hospital, and a special thanks to Fatma, my mentor and guide at the Memorial Hospital on my day of tests and examinations. I telephoned my surgeon a few days after the operation for advice on removing my plasters and he was most helpful and reassuring about my complete recovery. I was not too fond of the breakfast, but considered it as another form of medicine! My flight home was amazingly comfortable without painkillers, although they were definitely needed for a few days after my operation. In conclusion, I would be happy to have other treatment like this, though in a nice sort of way I hope never to set eyes on the Memorial Hospital again. 🙂

A very positive outcome

A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

Thank you Flymedi

I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

Overview

Composite fillings, also known as composite dental fillings are a very common dental restoration procedure used to reinforce chipped, cracked or teeth affected by cavities. Composite fillings are often regarded as being reliable, durable and aesthetically pleasing, making them the perfect choice for dentists and patients alike. Composite fillings for teeth are used in order to restore the function and integrity of just about any tooth affected by decay or trauma.  

 

Preparation

Patients are often required to have a set of Dental X-rays before the procedure can begin. The x-rays are done to check the state of the tooth’s root and in order to ensure that the tooth is not cracked.

How It Is Performed

The composite tooth fillings procedure begins with the dentist administering local anaesthesia to the patient. A syringe is used to inject anaesthesia in the gum area surrounding the affected tooth. Next, the decayed parts of the tooth are removed, ensuring that there is no chance of infection after the filling has been applied. Once the tooth is clean, the composite filling is placed and hardened. The dentist will spend some time touching up the composite dental filling in order to ensure good functionality and a proper fit. The dentist will also take some time to match the composite filling colour to the patient’s natural teeth. The last step is polishing the new tooth until the filling becomes barely visible.

Recovery

Patients will need to avoid drinking and eating for up to six hours after having the procedure. Some patients may encounter discomfort and an increase in sensitivity during this time, but it will pass in a matter of days, up to a week.

Risks

Composite fillings dangers can include: 

  • Infection of the tooth after fillings have been placed
  • Secondary caries in the treated tooth
  • Fracture of the restoration
  • Increased sensitivity of the tooth for up to several weeks

 

Side Effects

Composite fillings side effects can include: 

 

  • Discomfort during and after the procedure
  • Pain for a few hours after the procedure
  • Increase in sensitivity to hot and cold meals and drink

Success Rates

Patient reviews set the composite fillings success rate at around 98%. Most composite fillings will last between five and fifteen years or more.

 

Before And After

Although composite fillings before and after pictures look appealing, patients are required to maintain excellent oral hygiene in order to prolong the longevity of their teeth and fillings. Regular dental checkups are also a must for all patients.

Faq

Can I have composite fillings on front teeth?

Yes, composite fillings can be used for the front as well as the back teeth with no problem.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure lasts about an hour up to an hour and a half, depending on the state of the tooth that is being treated.

Is the filling permanent?

Composite fillings are not permanent, but they can last up to ten years and even more.
