Dental surgery

Current dental surgery is not only unpleasant tooth extraction and abscess incision. Today’s dental surgery is primarily improving and beautifying smiles through implants or bone reconstructions.

As everyone knows, technology moves forward, develops and this is also reflected in dentistry. Treatments that once seemed impossible, can today be called routine processes.

At present, dental surgery offers many alternative solutions that in an easy and painless way improve patient’s physical and mental state and even improve the quality of life.

In our clinic, each surgical procedure is performed in local anaesthesia which is safe for the patient. In addition to traditional anaesthesia: infiltration and conduction anaesthesia, we also have a completely painless computer system – The Wand – at our disposal.

SURGICAL PROCEDURES PERFORMED IN OUR DENTAL CENTER:

  • Milk-tooth removal
  • Removal of permanent tooth / root
  • Wisdom-tooth removal
  • Surgical removal of a impacted wisdom tooth
  • Surgical extractions
  • Apiceotomy
  • Abscess Incision

REMEMBER THAT … Only the dentist is able to determine if the tooth is to be removed.

The indications for this procedure are:

  • gangrene of the pulp and periapical changes in the teeth, with success in treatment deemed as highly unlikely
  • tooth position outside the arch – if it can not be corrected orthodontically
  • extraction aimed at creating sufficient space for the remaining teeth (recommended due to orthodontic reasons) and many others
  • vertical or comminuted fractures of roots and other

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Some of the processes occurring in the vicinity of the tooth may be a contraindication for the extraction. These are, among others:

cases when the tooth is in a tumour or in its vicinity
systemic contraindications (menstruation, pregnancy)

SOLUTIONS

Before performing of the surgery, a consultation with the surgeon is required , as well as periapical x-ray image of the tooth (which can be done in our X-ray room), and in special cases, a CT scan.
In our dental centre, doctors remove teeth in a standard way, and in some cases surgically. This type of surgery is performed on impacted teeth and teeth whose crown was completely destroyed.
In such cases, we usually use local anaesthetics, such as the technology of computer anaesthesia – The Wand.
To avoid extraction, one should regularly monitor the health of one’s teeth. Check-ups are recommended every 6 months. During such visits, a dentist can detect early stages of tooth decay, hot spots and avoid irreversible changes.
