Abud exceeded all my expectations

Abud exceeded all my expectations for Flymedi. He was readily available to answer my questions and put my mind at ease. I was never made to feel like I asked too many questions or rushed at all, he spoke to me as if he were a long time friend. He was also very clear about everything I am going to expect on my trip, from accommodations to the procedure, down to the weather and beautiful things to see in Turkey. Abud makes things so simple and takes the stress away from traveling. I could not and most likely would not have done this without Abud and his help!

First time plastic surgery experience with FlyMedi

I contacted Flymedi about getting a breast augmentation done and I was contacted by Abud shortly thereafter who was helped me through the initial planning phase so well. Since I am coming all the way from Africa and have never traveled alone, Abud organized a video call with the surgeon to go over some of the questions I had as well as my expectations of the surgery. I am very pleased with the service so far and already feel safe about traveling to Istanbul for my surgery

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

Recommended For Crowns

Crowns are recommended for individuals with large cavities or teeth that require root canal treatment.

Not Recommended For Crowns

Some patients have teeth that are too decayed for a dental crown – a dental implant is needed first, before the crown can be applied. Patients without enough bone tissue in the region may also require a dental bone graft before applying a dental implant.

Minimum Stay

3 to 14 days

Preparation

It’s a good idea to have a dental X ray before going overseas for dental crowns. Patients can request pictures of dental crowns from clinics before going in for treatment.

Risks

According to a study on dental crowns from 2015, there are some complications associated with porcelain crowns and zirconia crowns. The overall complications rate is about 4.1%. Potential dental crowns problems include:
Dental crowns nerve damage – the nerve of the tooth can be damaged during the preparation for a dental crown and this can lead to the need of a root canal treatment and removal of the nerve. 
Dental crowns can increase sensitivity of the tooth – special types of toothpaste can be used to decrease sensitivity. 
● Allergic reaction to the materials used – this can be avoided by having an allergy test. 
● Dental crown infection – this can happen if the crown itself is not properly sealed or the decayed part of the tooth is not removed entirely during the preparation phase. 

Side Effects

Patients may feel numbness from the local anaesthesia for a few hours after the procedure. Patients can also experience an increase in sensitivity of the tooth, especially when consuming cold or hot food and drinks – this usually lasts about a week after the procedure.

Success Rates

Dental crowns on teeth are durable and reliable, if properly cared for. A survey based on dental crowns patient reviews sets the success rate at 92%, 6 years after the procedure.

Before And After

Dental crowns before and after pictures may seem appealing but the patient needs to understand that dental crowns do require some special attention – flossing, brushing and regular checkups are required in order to ensure the health of the dental crown, especially if we are talking about crowns on front teeth, which are the most visible.

Types of dental crowns

Full Metal Crowns

Full metal crowns have been used for hundreds of years, often using softer, more malleable metals such as gold and silver. Nowadays, with advancements in dentistry and technology, patients are able to benefit from a wider range of full metal dental crowns which can include materials such as palladium, chromium and nickel or an alloy between different metals. Full metal dental crowns have an advantage compared to other types of dental crowns – less material from the tooth itself needs to be removed before placing the crown and once it’s set it will remain in place for many years, being able to withstand a great deal of force and pressure. Full metal crowns are perfect for patients suffering from bruxism or patients requiring a more affordable dental crown. Full metal crowns are the cheapest solution, making them quite popular for the back teeth, such as the molars. They are also used in certain cases where porcelain crowns cannot be applied due to various reasons.

Porcelain Fused to Metal Dental Crowns

Porcelain fused to metal dental crowns have a thin metal sub-structure offering them increased durability. As opposed to full metal crowns, porcelain fused to metal crowns can have the colour of already existing adjacent teeth, making them more aesthetically pleasing. Porcelain crowns can be created through different techniques such as layering – where multiple layers of porcelain are placed over the metal sub-structure of the crown, making sure the crown itself offers the same translucency as the patient’s natural teeth. Porcelain crowns also offer multiple grades of aesthetic quality, as compared to all ceramic crowns for example. The only drawback of porcelain crowns is the fact that sometimes the metal sub-structure can be seen as a dark line at the base of the tooth, especially for patients with receding gum lines. Given their aesthetically pleasing look and durability, porcelain fused to metal dental crowns can be used for the back teeth as well as front teeth.

All Ceramic Crowns

All porcelain or all ceramic dental crowns provide the best aesthetic results in terms of translucency as well as colour, perfectly mimicking the look and shine of natural teeth. These crowns are also perfect for patients allergic to certain metals. Although pressed all ceramic crowns are not supported by a metal sub-structure, they are very durable and capable of withstanding pressure for many years – these crowns act as new layers over the patient’s real tooth, the only drawback being the amount of material which needs to be removed from the  tooth before placing them. In certain cases, all ceramic crowns can be used for the front teeth.

Zirconia Dental Crowns

Zirconia crowns are somewhat similar to porcelain fused to metal crowns in the sense that porcelain is layered over a sub-structure – in this case the substructure being made out of zirconia. Zirconia is a very durable material which unlike metal is a bit translucent and white, making it better suited for use in dental restorations. Due to its strength, zirconia can also be used for the manufacture of implants as well. This material combined with porcelain will provide patients with the most aesthetically pleasing results as well as very high durability.
