Why Choose Post Modern Clinic?
Our clinic is an exclusive and one of the rare clinics that treat and tend to patients individually. We do not accept groups of patients and treat them in batches. Because we believe it lowers the quality of the treatment and the comfort of the patient. We do not see the number of patients and their treatments as a numbers game. We do not compromise quality for the sake of quantity. You will feel yourself unique in Post Modern Clinic. Because you are special to us as every other patient, we have. You might have heard some disappointment stories from your friends about other clinics. Unfortunately, there are some unethical practices in a lot of clinics that causes these disappointments. One of them is employing young doctors with low wages and putting them to 16-18 hours of work in a day to make more money. We do not do that. In Post Modern Clinic, our doctors are top quality and experienced specialists in their fields. Another problem in many other clinics you might have heard is deceiving patients in quoting the treatment. They send a low quote to the patient to draw him/her to the clinic, and suddenly they come up with different treatment plan and raise the cost of the treatment when you arrive to the clinic. We never ever do that. Before you come to Turkey, our international patients department and doctors will make every effort to pinpoint your treatment cost. So, no disappointments, no surprises in our clinic!

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is a science that examines and provides solutions to oral and dental health problems of children from birth to the end of adolescence. As the teeth of the children start to emerge, the dental system goes through different periods until the permanent teeth emerge. Pediatric dentistry includes different applications such as;

  •  Following and preventing dental disorders
  •  Treatment of decay in milk (baby teeth) and permanent teeth
  •  Preservation of toothless areas that will occur as a result of early tooth extraction

General Anesthesia and Sedation in Children

General anesthesia and sedation in children make the treatments easier, faster and practical. With the new anesthesia techniques we use, anesthesia is a very easy process in Post Modern Clinic. Our clinic is considered one of the best places in Pediatric Dentistry.

Sedation is different from general anesthesia. In sedation applications, children can communicate with dentists during treatment as well as answer questions. No respiratory support is required in sedations.

Why Is Anesthesia Applied In Children's Dental Problems?

Dental caries are the most common problem in the oral health of children. Dental caries may occur in children who do not brush their teeth regularly. In addition, general anesthesia can be applied if there are suitable conditions for tooth fractures or bigger problems in children.

  •  If local anesthesia or sedation is not sufficient for the treatment
  •  To prevent intense fear and anxiety
  •  Physical or mental disability
  •  Communication is not possible with the patient
  •  If baby bottle caries are seen at an early age

After General Anesthesia

After general anesthesia, the parents and the patient are hosted in our clinic for a period of one to two hours. The waiting time may vary depending on the condition of the patient. After a day’s rest, patient can continue their daily life.

What Is Fluoride Treatment?

The World Health Organization report states that inadequate intake of fluoride adversely affects health and leads to tooth decay. The UK National Health Service’s (NHS) study of children with and without drinking water fluoride reported that children who drink fluorinated water have less than 60 percent tooth decay.

Fluoride treatment in children is the safest and cost-effective preventive application that has been developed both to protect teeth and prevent the progression of caries. It reduces tooth decay by 30-40%.

How Does Fluoride Treatment Protect Teeth?

Milk teeth complete an important part of the development before birth. Jaws continue to develop slowly over the years. In a 7-8-year-old child, the development of permanent teeth is completed.

During the development of the teeth, the fluoride taken by the child using fluorinated water is dispersed throughout the body and some of them participate in the structure of the developing teeth. Fluoride strengthens the tooth structure and increases its resistance to caries.

What Is Fissure Sealant?

No matter how much we brush our teeth, in some cases, we may not be able to prevent caries. Because toothbrushes cannot be designed to reach every point of the tooth. Fissures formed on molar teeth located at the back of our mouth cause caries. However, with the application of fissure sealant, we can prevent the formation of caries by sealing these fissures. Fissure sealing process, especially applied to molars in children, is done to prevent the accumulation of nutrients in the recesses and grooves that may cause caries formation.

Is It An Easy Procedure?

It is an easy and painless procedure. The treatment duration is 3-5 minutes depending on the adaptation of the child.

Is Fissure Sealing a Repeated Application Like Fluoride?

Fissure sealing is not a repeated application like fluoride. It is done once per tooth.

When Should Fissure Sealant Be Applied?

It is necessary to consult a pediatric dentist for a fissure sealing process at the time when the molars of the child and the permanent teeth start to come out. Because new teeth can decay much faster. Therefore, it is very important to start preventive applications in the early period.

What Happens If The Fissure Sealing Is Not Done?

If the fissure sealing is not made on time, the teeth are at risk of caries. Over time, the teeth may begin to decay from the pitted surfaces prone to caries. Depending on the depth of caries, filling, root canal treatment or tooth extraction may be required. These treatments are both higher in cost and more tedious for children.

Let us assure you that we use the highest quality dental materials, same or better than your local dentist. In addition, every country has different living costs as you might have known.
