The first examinations, diagnosis and treatment planning of our patients who apply to the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinics are made by the specialist physicians of the department. At the same time, dentists who are doing postgraduate education in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery also provide examination and treatment services. When additional imaging is required for diagnosis, our patients are referred to the Oral, Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology Clinic and radiographs are taken when deemed necessary. After the treatment planning of our patient is completed, an appointment is made for the necessary treatment procedures.
Patients who cannot adapt to dental treatments due to their physical and/or mental disability, have fear of the dentist, cannot cooperate, and have syndromes are treated under intravenous sedation and general anesthesia in the daily operating room of our hospital. These treatments are performed by an anesthesiologist and oral, dental and maxillofacial surgeon in operating room conditions.
According to the needs of our patients whose treatment has been completed, control sessions are created at certain periods that the physician deems appropriate, and treatment follow-up is carried out.
