Oral surgery

In our clinic, a number of surgeries are performed, covering the widest range of intraoral dental operations.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases, injuries, defects and aesthetic problems of the teeth, mouth, jaws and face. The most common surgery is tooth extraction. Our goal is to make the process safe and painless.

When is a surgical extraction necessary?

  • Extensive caries

  • Periodontal disease

  • Dental Abscess / Failed endodontic treatment

  • Tooth or root fracture

  • Impacted teeth/wisdom teeth

  • As part of an orthodontic treatment

  • Tooth development problems

  • Complete denture placement

Impacted wisdom teeth

The teeth that are most commonly found enclosed are the wisdom teeth. They may be located completely inside the bone or a part of them may have appeared in the mouth (semi-enclosed). Wisdom teeth erupt normally after the age of 16-18. However, there are cases where they do not rise at all and remain impacted. The wisdom tooth is the last tooth of permanent dentition. Their removal in each case is almost the same and is performed surgically with local anesthesia. To avoid pain and swelling after surgery, your doctor may prescribe medication, usually 24 hours before surgery.

Surgical extraction of teeth and roots

In many cases, minor surgery is needed to remove ectopic teeth and roots. This operation should be performed with the least possible burden on the patient and with proper management of hard and soft tissues. In this way, the aesthetics and functionality of the mouth are not affected.

Cuspid Teeth

As part of a comprehensive orthodontic treatment, in collaboration with the orthodontist, we undertake their surgical disclosure and move them to the correct position in the mouth. If this is not possible and their extraction is unavoidable, it is performed safely and without affecting the neighboring teeth. If there is a gap in the denture, it is usually recommended to place an implant or other restoration means, depending on the case.

Surgical removal of cysts and small benign tumors

Jaw cysts are another common oral pathological condition. Cysts are most often odontogenic. Benign tumors may be found in the soft or hard molecules in the oral cavity. Their surgical removal allows us to examine them histologically in a specialized laboratory and thus rule out the case of malignancy. However, in addition to their safe surgical removal, it is absolutely necessary to clarify and address what caused them (eg endodontic treatment or extraction of the responsible tooth). Equally important is the replenishment of the bone defect that results from the pathological condition. This is done with special regenerative techniques that ensure that there will be no risk of aesthetic or functional deformation (classic prosthetic or implant placement).

Frenectomy

The frenulum is a small fold of connective tissue that is located in the mouth and starts from the tongue (frenulum linguae), lips (frenulum labii) or cheek (buccal frena). In some cases, they are either hypertrophic, thus impeding mobility, or they end up in a position that creates a problem in the teeth. Then a frenectomy (partial or total) is needed, in order to eliminate the problems. In these surgeries, the use of soft tissue laser is a good alternative to the classic scalpel resection, so that the surgery is bloodless, with few postoperative symptoms and rapid healing.

Aesthetic rehabilitation - Plastic surgery

Our smile, the strongest weapon for a good first impression, sometimes needs improvement. The usual procedures are two:

1. Periodontal plastic surgery involves surgical techniques aimed at treating periodontal problems, offering an elegant result. Excessive exposure or gum recession is the most common problem caused by periodontal tissues in our smile. With specialized interventions we can give the ideal gum outline to the patient's smile.

2. The aesthetics of the face is the result of the support provided by the jaw and the teeth on the lips and the right position and mobility of the muscles. With regenerative bone grafting techniques (guided bone regeneration), we can properly support the lips and cheeks and give the patient a natural, beautiful smile.
