What is oral surgery?
Oral surgery represents that branch of dentistry that includes operative treatment for various aesthetic or functional conditions found at the oro-maxillo-facial level.
This branch has evolved a lot thanks to advanced technology, and specific procedures are very common in dental offices.
The experience of the doctors of our clinic together with the latest generation technology purchased make the problems of this nature of the patients to be solved quickly, simply, accurately, a fact that should make even the most fearful to choose to be treated.
Technology and safety
As we mentioned before, the evolution of technology has revolutionized techniques in the dental field and, implicitly, in the branch of oral surgery.
To ensure that patients have access to the most modern, safe and precise treatments, we have invested both in the improvement of the medical team and in technologies that provide support in carrying out the treatments.
The Fotona Light Walker laser is a good example of this, being successfully used in surgical procedures due to its benefits. The fact that it comes with two built-in technologies, the laser used in the treatment of hard dental tissues and the laser for the treatment of soft tissues, makes it ideal for the surgical branch as well.
It should be specified that the benefits include:
90% pain reduction;
Precision and efficiency in performing dental maneuvers;
Does not require suturing after surgery;
Strong bactericidal effect;
Tissue regeneration and rapid healing.
Surgical interventions performed at Dentland
In our clinic, we perform a wide range of surgical interventions to be able to solve the diversity of problems faced by patients. Among them we mention:
Regularization of alveolar ridges
This process involves the smoothing of the bone layer following tooth extractions. This technique aims to obtain an optimal prosthetic field for subsequent prostheses.
Periodontal dental surgery
Along with the evolution of dental equipment and techniques, revolutionary guided bone and tissue regeneration techniques have also appeared. Thus, for a problem faced by so many patients, periodontitis, surgery comes with an innovative solution that aims to preserve and extend the life of periodontal teeth.
Gingival plastic surgery
Gingival tissues have both a functional role, but the aesthetic role should not be neglected either.
Thus, this type of intervention, gingival plastic surgery, aims to restore the optimal morpho-functional content of the gingival tissues.
This includes the most common surgical procedures performed in dental offices, which are performed under loco-regional anesthesia.
Interventions in this category include: tooth extraction, apical resection, cystectomy, subgingival curettage, periodontal surgery.
Given that the right information can help patients overcome their fear of certain treatments, below we will present some details related to the most common surgical interventions.
Extraction of brain mass
Because of the special structure of the wisdom teeth, many patients require their extraction, which is a decision that is made by mutual agreement between the doctor and the patient.
The fact that the mind balls are the last to erupt often causes positioning problems due to limited space and being behind the arch. Thus, among the problems that can determine the need for the extraction of the brain masses are:
The masses of the mind erupted only partially;
Misplaced wisdom teeth can damage neighboring teeth;
A cyst formed in the area destroys surrounding structures, such as the roots of neighboring teeth.
For these reasons, the recommendation to extract the brain mass is motivated, it prevents problems such as: the appearance of pain, the appearance of infections, the appearance of swelling, bleeding, etc.
Apical resection is another type of surgery that removes the tip of the root and necrotic, inflammatory, or cystic areas to treat an infection that has recurred even after endodontic treatment.
This procedure is performed only in special cases, when endodontic treatment is not enough and the degree of infection is high.
This procedure, like all the others in oral surgery, is performed under local anesthesia, which makes the treatment easy and painless.
Finally, it is important to note that each body reacts differently to surgical interventions depending on metabolism. For any doubts regarding the treatments, the specialists of the Dentland clinic are at your disposal and ensure you find the optimal solution for your case.
