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

Fantastic!! Definitely recommend booking via flymedi, prices are affordable which isn’t the case where I live. So far everything’s running smoothly and any questions I’ve had have been answered honestly and promptly. very caring and professional towards your needs and no judgments

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

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.
