Oral surgery is a speciality of dental medicine, and the most common oral surgical procedures are complicated tooth extraction, impacted wisdom teeth, tooth root resection and extraction of residual roots and broken teeth. Oral surgery includes the reconstruction of the aesthetic and functional disorders of the oral cavity with pre – prostodontic and pre – implantologic procedures.
In collaboration with other dental specialties of medicine, especially during orthodontic treatment it is sometimes necessary to remove some healthy teeth, for therapy to be successful and complete. All oral surgical procedures are performed under local anesthesia and they are completely painless!
Wisdom tooth surgery is the most common procedure in oral surgery. During the
eruption of wisdom teeth can cause inflammation and painful symptoms called
pericoronitis – inflammation of the surrounding gums (gingiva).
When endodontic root treatment and rehabilitation of chronic granuloma failed,
surgery is indicated and it is recommended the removal of the root tip with a granulomatous process. In the case of a cyst in the root tip the procedure is identical.
Filling the root canal is usually done through the crown of the tooth immediately before surgery.
With extraction of teeth and the healing of wounds bone volume gets reduced. Bone
resorption occurs yielding aesthetic and functional defects. Augmentation can restore the lost bone volume that is necessary for implant – prosthetic rehabilitation for patients who want comfortable and functional denture, or purely for aesthetic reasons.
