Oral surgery – spectrum of the performed procedures

Oral surgery is one of specializations of dentistry. It deals with surgical treatment in the oral cavity area. This applies to lesions and abnormalities occurring in soft tissues (gums, mucosa), hard tissues (bones) and teeth. It is mostly focused on procedures which do not require hospital treatment. The procedures are performed by a dental surgeon, i.e. a dentist who has completed a specialization in this field.

Most frequently performed procedures:

  • extractions (or removal) of baby and permanent teeth that can no longer be saved by conservative treatment;
  • extractions of impacted or incorrectly positioned in the bone teeth – most often these are wisdom teeth;
  • extractions of teeth with a complex root system which cannot be removed in the usual way or of broken roots that the general dentist was not able to handle (e.g. tooth chiseling);
  • procedures related to preparation for prosthesis or orthodontic treatment, e.g. undercutting of a lip or tongue frenulum;
  • alveolar plastic surgery – a plastic closure of the oral-sinus joint which sometimes occurs when using molars in the jaw;
  • resection of tooth root tips which could not be fully cured during root canal treatment;
  • surgical removal of inflammation, i.e. incision and drainage of intraoral abscesses;
  • pre-implantological procedures aimed to create appropriate bone conditions for implantation (including closed and open maxillary sinus lift, controlled bone regeneration);
  • inserting dental implants;
  • removal of lesions in the area of the oral cavity (hypertrophy, benign and malignant tumors, cysts etc.)
  • traumatic surgery (patients after accidents, fractures of the jaw, mandible, tooth replantations, etc.).

Indications for oral surgery must be based on a thoroughly collected patient history, clinical examination and specialized radiological tests. Our clinic offers the latest digital radiography system and 3D computer tomography from Vatech which helps us in planning as well as professional and safe execution of surgical procedures.
