Oral surgery interventions are current procedures in the dental office performed under local anesthesia. In this category are included: dental extraction, apical resection, cystectomy, odontectomy, periodontal surgery etc.
Dental extraction is a routine procedure. Even if the majority of extraction can be safely performed in the dental office, some patients need hospital treatment, because of serious general affections. Dental extraction is the last treatment option, applied only when all other types of treatment failed.
Wisdom teeth have a special status in oral surgery. Often they block during the eruption behind the second molar, situation known as dental inclusion. Many patients complain of pain, swelling at a young age. In older patients, the 3rd molar is often affected by decay and gum disease. The majority of problems associated with third molar is explained by difficult access to the area for proper cleaning and brushing, this leading to inflammation and infection. In any case, 3rd molar cause so many problems, that very frequently they need to be removed through extraction or odontectomy, depending on how erupted the tooth is, on the tooth position, on roots shape and position.
This type of intervention is best performed in a proper oral surgery office and by an oral surgeon. In ANDREEA DENTAL STUDIO you will be seen by a specialist and you will be operated in an office equipped with instruments and devices meant to offer you a safe and predictable result.
Apical resection is an oral surgery intervention additional to root canal treatment. It is recommended when endodontic treatment failed to treat the infection located in the apical area. The intervention’s purpose is to remove the chronic infection/granuloma as well as a small apical portion of the infected root, saving the tooth and avoiding an extraction.
Oral surgery procedures also include interventions additional to dental implants.
When a patient has advanced bone resorption, making impossible to insert a dental implant, bone graft procedures and sinus lifting intervention can be performed, in order to increase the bone dimensions.
