(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

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.
