Best Dentists in Turkey

Dentistry, as a branch of medicine, comprises the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of conditions of the oral cavity, and is widely considered important for overall health. Dental implants, dental crowns, dental bridges, dentures, and teeth whitening are among the most popular dental procedures.

Two of the most common oral diseases are dental caries and gum disease. Common treatments involve the restoration of teeth, extraction of teeth, and endodontic root canal treatment. In the 20th century new dental techniques and technology were invented, such as the air driven dental tools, that ushered in a new high speed dentistry.

A licensed dentist can carry out most dental treatments and oral surgeries, can perform examinations, can take radio-graphs (x-rays) and diagnosis. Additionally, dentists can prescribe medications that serve in the treatment of various conditions, but they need to take additional qualifications or training to carry out more complex procedures such as general anesthesia, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and implants.
