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.

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.
