I graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science from the Marmara University in 2010. I gained my PhD degree in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Başkent University in 2014. I worked as an observing visitor surgeon in AZ Sint-Jan in Brugge in 2016 and Ludwig-Maximilian University in 2019. I am currently working as a faculty at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Başkent University. My surgical and scientifical interests include dental implantology, correction of dentofacial deformity and TMJ surgery. I authored many scientific publications and two book chapters.
Immobilization of the jaw by rigid internal fixation during orthognathic surgery is required to prevent impaired bone healing and postoperative relapse. Maxillary mobility due to non-union, also called as floating maxilla, is possibly caused by inadequate stabilization. Prebent miniplates and conventional miniplates are mostly utilized to stabilize the maxilla during surgery. By improving the 3D computerized planning and manufacturing systems, patient specific implants also gained popularity in the field of maxillofacial surgery. Based on the scientific data available in the current literature, I am going to focus the accuracy and success of different osseosynthesis devices using for fixation of Le Fort 1 osteotomies.
