Full ceramic era in teeth!

With the increase in aesthetic expectations, all-ceramic, which is being used more frequently in dental restorations, promises a healthy and aesthetic smile. Being able to smile is one of the most special details that makes life beautiful. The key to a beautiful smile that will make you feel good is healthy and beautiful teeth. Today, thanks to advances in dental technology, it is easier to have healthy aesthetic teeth. So much so that the increasing aesthetic expectations of people also lead to the materials and technologies used in dental treatments. Assist. Prof. Dr. Burcu Günal Abduljalil from Near East University Faculty of Dentistry Hospital said that the full ceramic crown and bridge restorations they use in dental treatments open the doors of success to achieve healthy, natural and aesthetic looking teeth. Ceramic restorations with metal substructure support cannot meet aesthetic expectations Reminding that ceramic restorations with metal infrastructure support have been used in dental restorations for a long time and these applications are still continuing successfully, Assist. Prof. Dr. Burcu Günal Abduljalil said, “However, today, due to metal infrastructures, this application falls short of meeting expectations in issues where aesthetics come to the fore. With the increasing interest in aesthetic dentistry, the development of alternatives to metal-supported ceramic restorations continues rapidly. Full ceramic is preferred for dental aesthetics In order to meet aesthetic expectations, all-ceramic applications in dental treatments are becoming more common day by day. Among the reasons for the preference of full ceramic are its excellent biocompatibility with oral tissues, aesthetic properties, structural durability, and low thermal conductivity. Assist. Prof. Dr. Burcu Günal Abduljalil said that all-ceramic restorations are divided into glass ceramics and oxide ceramics in accordance with their content. Glass ceramics are preferred in single-tooth restorations, especially in the anterior region, where aesthetics is important. In oxide ceramics, the mechanical properties of the material have been improved, but the light transmittance is lower compared to glass-ceramics. Assist. Prof. Dr. Burcu Günal Abduljalil: “Patients are not left toothless in the treatment process of all-ceramic restorations.” Stating that patients generally feel fear and anxiety about the treatment process, Assist. Prof. Dr. Günal Abduljalil explains that all-ceramic restorations are nothing to be afraid of: “The first priority in the treatment of all-ceramic restorations is to ensure the gingival health of the patient. After operations such as filling, treatment of cariosity or tartar are carried out, the treatment is started by choosing the color of the all-ceramic restorations. Then, the tooth shaping process is carried out and the mouth measurement is taken, and the laboratory stage is started. The selected all-ceramic material is precisely produced in the laboratory. First, we check the compatibility of the tooth by rehearsing the infrastructure in the patient’s mouth. If everything is ok, the restoration is sent to the laboratory for completion and the final stage is started on the same day. The final stage is the bonding of the restoration onto the tooth surface. At the same time, tooth cutting and measures are taken to make a temporary restoration to the patient during the procedures. Temporary restoration is applied to the patient on the same day. Therefore, there is no such thing as being toothless.” What should be considered after the application of all-ceramic restorations? Stating that in patients with habits such as grinding, a protective night plate should be used after the treatment, Assist. Prof. Dr. Burcu Günal Abduljalil said, “Caring for restorations is no different than taking care of the patient’s own natural teeth.” Stating that all-ceramic teeth can be used easily for many years thanks to good oral care applied regularly (brushing the teeth with the right technique twice a day, using dental floss or an interface brush to clean the interfaces of the teeth, and using mouthwash), Assist. Prof. Dr. Günal Abduljalil said, “In patients undergoing bridge restoration, special dental floss should be used to ensure the cleaning of the edentulous area. The patient should visit the dentist regularly (every six months), as should normally be done.

The article in which the case of a domestic cat diagnosed with COVID-19 was shared with the scientific world by Near East University was accepted for publication in the Australian Veterinary Journal

The results of the case, in which the Near East University found that a domestic cat was infected with the British variant in the TRNC, made a sensation in the scientific world. With the case announced in May, it was detected that COVID-19 was transmitted from a human to a pet for the first time in the TRNC. Another important aspect was that it was the first case to show that a cat was infected with the SARS-CoV-2 B.1.1.7 (British) variant. The article written after a joint research conducted by Prof. Dr. Tamer Şanlıdağ and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mahmut Çerkez Ergören from the Near East University COVID-19 PCR Diagnostic Laboratory, one of doctors at the Near East Animal Hospital Prof. Dr. Eser Özgencil, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Serkan Sayıner, Assist. Prof. Dr. Mehmet Ege İnce and Research Assistant Veterinarian Ali Çürükoğlu, has been accepted for publication in the veterinary journal “Australian Veterinary Journal” in Australia’s famous high-impact science citation index (SCI). “We believe this study improves current understanding of human-to-cat SARS-CoV-2 transmission with the B1.1.7 variant,” the journal editors wrote in their acceptance letter. The first cat to be infected with the British variant! Near East University scientists determined that COVID-19 was transmitted from human to pet for the first time in Northern Cyprus in May. Another interesting feature of the case was that it was the first time a domestic cat was detected to be infected with the British variant of SARS-CoV-2. Studies around the world to date have suggested that pets can become infected three to six weeks after COVID-19 patients. The analyzes carried out by the scientists of the Near East University revealed that the cat was infected at the same time as the family members in the TRNC. SARS-CoV-2 can infect pets in the first 10 days As a result of the analysis, it was detected for the first time in the world that human-to-pet transmission occurs within the first 10 days. In addition, it has been proven that the British variant of SARS-CoV-2 B.1.1.7 can be transmitted from human to human as well as from human to domestic cat. One of the responsible staff of the Near East University COVID-19 PCR Diagnostic Laboratory, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mahmut Çerkez Ergören said, “The case we detected in the TRNC proved that the English variant of SARS-CoV-2 can be transmitted from person to person in a high capacity as well as from person to domestic animals. Therefore, the article we prepared based on this case found an important response in the scientific world without wasting time.”

Venaseal, the non-surgical varicose vein treatment method, has been used for the first time in the TRNC at the Near East University Hospital!

Varicose veins, also known as vein enlargement, can turn into a serious problem as they progress. In addition to deteriorating the aesthetic appearance, it can also cause serious problems such as swelling, pain or cramps in the legs, infection, bleeding and ulceration (wound) on the skin. Near East University Hospital Cardiovascular Surgery Department specialist Prof. Dr. Barçın Özcem says that the Venaseal method, which is accepted as the most up-to-date and most innovative treatment for varicose veins in the world, has also started to be used at the Near East University Hospital. Venaseal method, also known as biological bonding Venaseal, which is applied as the most up-to-date varicose treatment method in the world today, is performed through the use of a new product approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The basic material of the product, which has biological adhesive properties, is currently used as tissue adhesive in some surgeries of cardiovascular surgery. Venaseal method is applied by injecting biological adhesive into the varicose vein and closing the vein by bonding. Venaseal is widely used in the world as the only FDA-approved product. It is stated by experts that they could not reach the peak success of Venaseal due to the serious side effects of its counterparts. Prof. Dr. Barçın Özcem: “We are now benefiting from non-surgical innovative methods in the treatment of varicose veins” “Although surgical treatment methods with surgery come to mind first when it comes to varicose treatment, non-surgical and robotic techniques used today have become new and increasingly popular treatment methods,” saying Prof. Dr. Barçın Özcem, also stated that innovative methods were used in the treatment of varicose disease at the Near East University Hospital, and that the surgical method was carried out in very few patients who had to be operated on. How is it performed? Prof. Dr. Barçın Özcem explained the method of application of the Venaseal method; “This method is a procedure that must be performed under ultrasound guidance, like laser and radiofrequency methods. Before the application of the Venaseal, the patient must be examined in detail with Doppler ultrasound and the varicose veins must be mapped. The treatment of the varicose vein is provided by injecting adhesive through the catheter path placed inside the varicose vein. Unlike other methods, the Venaseal method does not require any anesthesia. Very successful results are also obtained as an aesthetic varicose treatment method. There are no bruises and pain after the application. The process usually takes 10-15 minutes. Although rare, the Venaseal method can be used in combination with other methods. Prof. Dr. Barçın Özcem: “Venaseal varicose veins treatments are now much more comfortable” Prof. Dr. Barçın Özcem said that the Venaseal method is a more comfortable procedure than other varicose veins treatments and continued as follows: “With the simple and outpatient Venaseal method, there is no need for anesthesia. Compared to laser and radiofrequency applications, which are other advanced technology methods, less pain and bruising is encountered, and faster recovery is achieved. Again, according to classical methods, there is usually no need for bandages and compression stockings after the procedure.”

The Ministry of Health has approved the use of the PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit developed by Near East University!

The domestic and national PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit of the TRNC, approved for use by the Ministry of Health, can simultaneously detect the UK, South Africa, Brazil and India variants of SARS-CoV-2, along with the diagnosis of COVID-19, within 1 hour. The PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit, designed and developed by Near East University scientists, has been approved for use by the TRNC Ministry of Health. The PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit, developed to detect COVID-19 disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, detects the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in less than an hour, while at the same time Alpha (UK), Beta (South Africa), Gamma (Brazil) and Delta (India) variants can be typed. With the approval of the SARS-CoV-2 PCR Diagnosis and Variant Analysis Kit, which was designed entirely by the Near East University scientists, by the Ministry of Health of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, a reliable and accurate domestic alternative to the test kits imported by the TRNC from abroad has now been produced.
