Trust, Experience and Excellence
Our patients have realized many benefits since we computerised and networked our treatment rooms. Each treatment room is computerized and networked with each other. All intraoral and extraoral photography, Sidexis images, patient records, written communication and clinical information can be shared between the Doctors and treatment areas instantly from anywhere in the office. Automatic reminders to patients when they have decided it’s time to see us again. Daily submission of insurance forms so that reimbursement to our patients is much quicker. Immediate access to the Internet with our VDSL hookup. E-mail to patients and to referring dentists about specific patient concerns. Document scanning and remarkable backup systems to insure against loss of patient information from fire, theft or vandalism. E-mail with the restoratives labs to achieve better cosmetic results for our patients. Processing of daily procedures, payments are done quicker and more efficiently.

We take many precautions to keep our office clean and sanitary for your safety. In the past few years studies have brought to light the fact that water lines necessary for many of the dental instruments can be contaminated with tens of thousands of microorganisms. Because of the structure of the narrow tubes and the way dental units are made, biofilm (a thin layer of bacterial slime that coats the inside of the dental tubing) is able to form inside the lines or tubing. When treating our patients with the dental equipment, these bacteria become airborne in tiny droplets and are constantly being inhaled. Most of these bacteria are harmless. But in the interest of your safety and the safety of our dental team we are taking some special steps to alleviate any potential problems. In response we have adopted the water treatment system, provides our office with a safe, fast, effective and ongoing solution for the removal of biofilm and microorganisms. The solution is a non-toxic, tasteless odorless antimicrobial germicide that you will not notice but will keep our water lines and the air we breathe safe.

The design and operating principles of the Dentsply Sirona Orthophos XG unit are based on the latest scientific research and clinical insight of the requirements of today’s maxillofacial radiology. Dentsply Sirona Orthophos XG combines several imaging modalities into one intelligent X-ray unit.

Panoramic radiography for general diagnostics of the tooth arch and the jaw.

Advanced panoramic radiography for specific diagnostics of the tooth arch, the jaw, maxillary sinuses and temporo-mandibular joints.

Dental tomographic slices for detailed morphologic diagnostics of facial bones.

Cephalometry for imaging of the skull.

Orthophos XG is a new digital imaging system developed by Dentsply Sirona. Orthophos XG uses multiple sweep method whereas the linear tomography uses one sweep. Dentsply Sirona combines the translation movement with an oscillation movement where the center of the rotation moves over the region of intrest. The layer thickness can be adjusted like in film based linear tomography. Due to the developed imaging method, the image of the anatomies are truthful and information maximized.

Advanced TMJ programs provide multi-angle and multi-projection radiographs of the temporomandibular joints.

In our office, we are committed to not only transform our patient’s smiles, but to provide them with an environment that is clean and healthy. We believe that clean air is essential for better health. In our office we have installed a stand-alone IQAir purifier system that protecting our patients from harmful pollution particles. Our IQAir is just one more way to foster our commitment to always offer the best quality service to our patients. Our IQAir purifier helps to eliminate any bacteria, viruses, odors from disinfectants and office chemicals, mercury vapors and volatile compounds in the air.

One of the biggest problems in dentistry is dental unit waterlines biofilm (layers of microorganisms that accumulate within water lines). We are one of the few offices in the nation to provide disinfected water in our dental operatories. In less than ten minutes the ozonated gas sterilizes the distilled water in the reservoir. As it passes through the lines it destroys biofilm.

Along with our desire to produce excellent dentistry comes the need to be able to see what we are doing more clearly. Without a doubt, the most important vision enhancement aid is a pair of high quality magnification loupes. When you see a magnified image of a tooth through a pair of loupes, your ability to render precision care rises tremendously. We believe magnification should be the standard of quality care. In light of the new techniques being used in dentistry, a high level of precision is paramount. We find this to be indispensable in our office.

Photography usage in dentistry is an essential part of proper documentation of a patient’s current condition. Just as a dentist needs radiographs for a proper diagnosis of health and disease, photography can also help with analysis and documentation of oral health. Photography helps to analyze oral conditions, long after the patient has left the office. Often comprehensive treatment plans are completed after an examination.

It’s faster and easier to digest an image than to read a paragraph of text. The old adage is more true than ever when we say that a picture is worth a thousand words…

The latest advancement in dental technology uses a computer and low-radiation X-ray to produce X-ray images directly onto a computer screen! With sophisticated software, the computer-generated X-ray can reveal information not previously available from a conventional X-ray machine. X-rays taken by the X-Ray can be colorized, magnified and computer-enhanced to indicate things such as bone density! Although every patient can benefit from the 90% DECREASE in radiation exposure, the digital X-ray machine offers special benefits to dental implant patients.

With the “instant” development time of the computer and the ability to view an enlarged X-ray on a computer screen at the patients’ chairside, Dentist Cankurt has the ability to make sure the patient’s nerves and sinuses are protected and the implants are properly seated by taking digital X-rays at various points during the procedure!

Added patient safety, more predictable treatment, much lower X-ray radiation, and instant feedback clearly make the digital X-ray machine the X-ray technology of the future.

Smile More Dental Clinics have not used filling material containing mercury (commonly called amalgam or silver amalgam. There are people who feel mercury can contribute to health problems. From a dental point of view, mercury fillings expand and contract with temperature changes (hot and cold liquids and foods). Over time, this constant expansion and contraction will cause teeth that are filled with this material to finally break. When preparing teeth to receive a restoration bonded (tooth colored) materials require fewer teeth to be removed than when preparing a tooth to receive an amalgam. Because of adhesive properties, a bonded restoration is able to retain the majority of a tooth’s strength. Conversely, an amalgam restoration greatly weakens a tooth’s strength.

Our doctors are educated in the proper way to remove amalgam in a healthy way. All procedures are done under a rubber dam isolation, which creates an area to do the procedure similar to a surgical isolation. This prevents inhalation of the amalgam particles as they are being removed as well as prevents bacteria present in saliva from entering the cavity preparation.

Tomography guided implantology is the biggest single advance in implant treatment planning. With tomography guided technology we can visualize the placement of implants and it gives us detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the jaw in all three dimensions. It helps us locate important internal structures and also helps us measure bone quality directly from images. As an implant surgeon and restorative dentists, we find a necessity, not an option.

The expertise of the cosmetic dentist can be limited by the technician who crafts and manipulates the porcelain restoration. Skillful artistry and scientific understanding of porcelain is very important. Our highly talented and exclusive ceramists are renowned for their craftsmanship. Because they are committed to producing the finest dental restorations, their lab is fitted with the latest technology and materials. The benefit of such a relationship includes a faster case turn around time and a more customized and natural looking smile. Our lab understands how we evaluate the entire face, skin tone, hair color and personality of our patient to make the teeth complement and enhance these individual features.

Lasers are a great asset in modern dentistry. However because they are expensive to purchase and maintain, most dentists fail to utilise their benefits. Using a laser for certain treatment can have a number of benefits for patients by providing faster healing times, reducing the risks of infection, creating less bleeding and less postoperative pain. The laser generates a beam of concentrated light bringing energy into your mouth to help remove areas of infection as it destroys many bacteria and viruses found in the mouth. In almost every case the patient feels nothing except a warm sensation in the gum.

Benefits of Laser Gum Treatment

It eliminates the disease, completely painless, you can save teeth, which usually would have to be extracted, it’s a long term result which is easy to maintain, you will have beautiful healthy teeth and a fresh breath again.

Dental Laser Is Used For Many Treatments

Desensitising Sensitive Teeth, Treating Cold Sores and Ulcers, Tissue Healing

Everyone would love a beautiful, bright smile. When you see a beautiful smile, it hard not to notice. A smile reveals so much about a person. It projects youthful confidence. People who don’t like the colour and appearance of their teeth will often avoid smiling.

A great smile can significantly boost your confidence and how other people view you. The appearance of your teeth is an important part of your smile and the way you look overall. Unfortunately, many lifestyle factors and the seemingly routine things you do day after day can discolour your teeth over time and contribute to the quality of your smile.

These include excessive consumption of coffee, tea and red wine, as well as food and drinks with strong colouring. Another major cause of discolouration is smoking, which can affect your smile not only by causing wrinkles to form around your mouth, but can also make your teeth appear yellow. Fortunately, laser teeth whitening can provide an effective solution.

Laser teeth whitening is a 1 hour procedure with results that can last you 2 to 3 years.

A protective layer is placed over your gums and soft tissues before we apply the whitening gel to the teeth. The laser is then used to activate the gel in order to whiten the teeth.

It’s safe, effective and very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. In many cases 6-9 shades lighter.
