We perform different types of oral surgery mainly focused on solving issues related to the mouth. Some examples:
Wisdom tooth surgery
It is one of the most common procedures and consists of the surgical extraction of wisdom teeth. There are many justifications for the extraction of these teeth, such as the lack of space in the jaw for a correct eruption, abnormal orientation that can produce damage to neighbouring teeth (crowding), or the inflammation of the gum by an unerupted wisdom teeth, which may lead to a chronic infection of the surrounding gum.
Removal of cysts and benign tumours
Cysts can be caused by latent infections of teeth that are in poor condition, by teeth that have not erupted the bone, or by debris from embryonic structures that are deeply embedded in the bone. In any of these situations, surgical removal is necessary.
Several types of benign tumours can develop in the oral cavity, such as: lipomas, fibromas or small angiomas that must be completely removed and subsequently analysed.
Several children suffer from problems with their frenula, both lingual and labial, which can lead to speech pathologies or difficulty in the correct positioning of the teeth in the dental arch. In these cases, short surgical operations can be carried out under local anaesthesia, thus solving problems that may lead to more issues in adulthood.
It deals with the surgical procedures performed before placing a prosthesis. These procedures are mainly based on modifying the anatomy of the gum or the maxillary or mandibular bone, in order to better fit the prosthesis or a bone graft for the subsequent placement of implants.
Periapical surgery (apicoectomy)
This technique consists of the removal of the tooth’s root tip, and is performed in the event that a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment presents an infection in the root tip.
Maxillary sinus elevation
When the bone does not protrude enough so as to place a dental implant, we can elevate the maxillary sinus.
This simple procedure consists of restoring the Schneiderian membrane to its correct position, then filling the free space with a substitute bone. This way it is possible to restore the necessary strength to place the dental implant in complete safety.
When teeth fall, the bone begins to reabsorb and lose volume, making it impossible to place implants. At our clinic we reconstruct the missing bone by means of a human bone graft before placing the implant.
Inferior alveolar nerve lateralisation
Alveolar nerve lateralisation is a surgical technique used when there is not enough bone in the lower jaw sector to place implants. It consists of temporarily displacing the nerve so as to create enough space to insert the implants.
