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.

Recommended For Wisdom Tooth Extraction

This procedure is recommended for patients with damaged or infected wisdom teeth due to cavities or trauma. Wisdom tooth extraction is also recommended for patients who experience pain due to the growth of these teeth, even if they are healthy. Wisdom teeth removal is recommended as a treatment for pericoronitis – infection, and inflammation of the gum tissue around a tooth. 

Duration Of Operation

1 to 2 hours

Minimum Stay

1 - 2 days

Overview

A wisdom tooth extraction is a type of dentistry procedure which focuses on the wisdom teeth. This procedure should not be confused with simple tooth extraction, even if the procedures are similar. Some dentists may avoid doing wisdom tooth extractions or surgical tooth extractions since the procedure tends to be a little bit more complicated than a simple tooth extraction.

Most patients will opt for a wisdom tooth extraction due to cavities, root infections or as a final solution for damaged teeth which cannot be treated with other dental restoration techniques such as crowns, tooth fillings or dental bridges. 

It's important to mention that even if in most cases, the wisdom teeth are under the gum line, they can still develop root infections or cavities from nearby teeth. In these cases, the dentist may try to treat the tooth with a filling or extract it, if the patient is suffering from discomfort or pain due to the tooth's growth pattern.

Almost all adults will require a wisdom tooth extraction before they reach the age of 30, even in cases where the wisdom teeth are healthy.

Preparation

Patients will need a set of dental X rays done before the procedure. Patients will also need to cease any intake of anti-inflammatory pills or anticoagulants for a few days before undergoing a wisdom tooth extraction

How It Is Performed

The average wisdom teeth removal operation is performed under partial or in some cases, general anesthesia by a dental surgeon. The procedure begins with the dentist locating the affected tooth and analyzing the surrounding area. After the anesthesia kicks in, an incision will be made in the gum line to expose the wisdom tooth. The tooth will then be carefully removed, in stages, as not to leave any parts of it behind. The bone may also need to be removed to allow access to the wisdom tooth roots. Once the tooth is removed, the dentist will use sutures to close the incision in the gum line.

Recovery

The average wisdom tooth extraction recovery period may last up to a couple of weeks during which the patient will require painkillers to avoid discomfort or pain. Alcohol and smoking are prohibited during this period. Patients need to abstain from eating for a few hours after the procedure.

Risks

Wisdom tooth extraction risks and complications can include:

Side Effects

Side effects can include pain, numbness, and discomfort.

Faq

How long does it take to heal fully?

It can take up to a few weeks for the wound to fully heal. Most people will need recovery in around a week.

Is it painful? For how long?

Most patients will experience pain and discomfort during the first week after the procedure.

Can I eat after a wisdom tooth extraction?

Patients need to avoid solid food for a few days after the procedure.
