Turkey Medicals – emotional preparation of a dental patient who comes to dentistry clinic in Istanbul and Antalya hospital is as important as preparing the area to be treated. Those who have emotional problems, tend to refuse treatment.

Loss is a fundamental event that anyone can experience. Tooth loss also plays the most important role in reminding us that life is fragile and extinction is acceptable. For many people, the first denture is an experience that requires adaptation to a significant change in an important area of the body. That is why it is likely that a significant part of patients approach the loss of teeth with some anxiety and suspicion. Emotional preparation of the patient is as important as the preparation of the area to be treated. People with emotional problems can be very affected by adapting to new situations. Vomiting seriously is an emotional reaction to tooth loss. With this reaction, November function can be significantly impaired. The gag reflex, which leads to poor coordination and inability to follow instructions for jaw movements, can also turn into a serious problem.


Everyone necessarily worries a little in the dentist’s office. Tooth loss is often perceived as traumatic. It is also associated with aging and loss of vitality. Patients who can physically adapt to a total prosthesis, aka a full prosthesis applied to patients who have had all their teeth removed, can be emotionally affected by tooth loss. Fear is a reaction to a known or unknown danger. It is not surprising that patients consider tooth loss terrible and frightening. A nervous patient can also cause the dentist to be nervous. The dentist has to show patience and a sense of trust and predict the effects on the patient. The dentist may not notice the psychological limitations of the patient. Some patients associate a false tooth with aging, a change in appearance, a loss of productivity, and a general decrease in their value as an individual. Some researchers have concluded that the human psyche has an important role in determining the patient’s ability to adapt to the denture and his satisfaction with dentures.


The first level is the ‘Mental response’ level. This is the highest level. The patient is willing to accept and face the difficulties in order to achieve certain results and benefits. The second level of the provided provision is of two types: physiological and psychological. It can be expressed in various degrees of emerging resistance and hostility, which leads to quarrels. The third level of response is the lowest. These patients are concerned only with their self-esteem, they accept what is comfortable and reject what is not comfortable. Patients with emotional problems refuse the nickname for reasons unrelated to technical competence. The subsequent stage of adaptation to the full denture is significantly influenced by the person’s ability to come to terms with the state of toothlessness. It is believed that being satisfied with the denture is first of all related to the person’s personality.


Laser-assisted implant applications are known as a minimally invasive method. This method can be applied in any area where the bone volume is appropriate. Before applying a laser-assisted implant, a three-dimensional computed tomography is taken from the patient to obtain detailed information about the width and depth of the bone tissue in which the implant will be placed. In this application, only the area of the gum to be implanted is opened using any of the erbium, diode, Nd:YAG, CO2 lasers. After reaching the bone tissue, a cavity about the diameter of the implant is opened with an erbium laser in the compact part of the bone, which is the hardest part. An implant is inserted into the opened cavity. After laser-assisted implant application, diode or Nd:YAG laser biostimulation is performed. Thanks to this application, the pain that may occur after the operation is eliminated and tissue healing is accelerated.


It is very important to consult with UK and USA dental patients without teeth. Meeting the expectations of patients from dentures will also affect their psychological comfort.

Although many health professionals forget that there has been a lot of research on various forms of organ loss and there has been interest in this issue, toothlessness has received relatively less psychological attention. However, although this condition is not life-threatening, it is obvious that it is an important emotional life issue. That is why it is not surprising that many toothless patients are described as unsuccessful in adapting to full dentures and incompatible in terms of the structure of the prosthesis.

The dental authorities have been aware of the relationship between psychology and dental treatments for a long time and have entered into a study to identify psychological factors that should be considered in the treatment of full dentures. Among psychological factors, depression, anxiety and fear can have a significant impact on decadulation.

It reveals that human behavior, dynamics, physiological, sociological and psychological factors have an important relationship with the acceptance of oral and dental health-related treatments and the highest level of success of dental health care. In this case, it is the Turkish dentist’s task to understand the patient, communicate effectively and carefully handle the situation.


The more depressing it is to lose a tooth, the more comforting it is to be able to replace the missing teeth in the same way as the original thanks to dental implants. Implants are artificial tooth roots that complement missing teeth. Implants are made of pure titanium material, which is completely bio-compatible. With proper planning and careful oral hygiene, implants remain in the mouth for life.


In laser-assisted implant applications, the recovery period after the operation is short because only the gum and bone process is performed in the area where the implant will be applied.

Erbium; With the hydrokinetic cutting technique of YSSG lasers, all kinds of bone surgery operations and implant applications can be performed without damaging the bone tissue, without thermal damage, and thus bone boiling after the operation is at the maximum level.

Before applying a laser-assisted implant, a 3-D computed tomography is taken from the patient to obtain all the details about the width and depth of the bone tissue where the implant will be placed. Thus, no surprises are encountered during the operation and the operation is completed in a short time.

All-On-Four and Columbus-Bridge methods, which are now being applied worldwide, heal faster when applied with laser support because there are no open wounds and prevent food accumulation because there are no stitches, making it easier to use teeth after surgery.
