Oral Surgery

The bone tissue graft is a bone that has been modified in laboratory or manufactured, usually by the shape of a small test form. Its source is often human, pork , beef, horsetail, or artificial in whole. It is placed with special surgical techniques to replace the lost bone in the receiver area, resulting in significant biological advantages in both natural and artificial teeth but also in better aesthetics. The grafts are assimilated by the body over a period of 3-6 months.

Sinus lifting is the surgical procedure in which we lift the sinus membrane inserting a graft of bone tissue between the upper jaw bone and the sinus membrane. Like this we increase bone height to place 1 or more implants in the upper jaw back area. This procedure can occur either on or before the same day the implants are placed in the area.

It is the microsurgery in which the upper or lower lip fraenum or the tongue fraenum is cut and removed. Fraenum is called a soft tissue component which begins from the inside of the lips or tongue and ends up in the gums. In certain situations, fraenums may trigger the gums to decline, or a wide gap between the upper jaw 's two front teeth. Fraenums are also removed in young children, except for orthodontic or periodontal reasons, when they have difficulty talking (short tongue fraenum). It is better to release a short tongue fraenum the sooner, before it causes verbal problems in a child. We do this microsurgery at our dental clinic, either with classical surgery or using laser under the influence of local anesthetic.

It is a microsurgery in which we expose a greater part of a tooth, either for biological or orthodontic purposes, where we uncover an impacted or semi-impacted tooth and put it in its position orthodontically.

Whenever we realize from the clinical and radiographic evaluation that a tooth in the mouth cavity can or must no longer remain, then it must be extracted. Extraction may be simple or surgical, under the influence of local anesthetic. In the simple extraction, a sufficient part of the tooth is seen in the mouth, and it is extracted. We give postoperative instructions, although medication or stitches are usually not required. As is often the case with wisdom teeth, little or no part of the tooth is seen in the mouth cavity in surgical extraction. A gum incision is then required, sometimes with removal of a quantity of bone that prevents tooth extraction, and eventually followed by the stitching and administration of postoperative instructions and medication.

It is the microsurgery, in which, for biological reasons, we directly reveal sufficient tooth height, in order to succeed better and longer-lived prosthodontic restorations.

Introduction of the Growth Factors_PRF_CGF into modern dental practice. Blood sampling is done in the first place, and the blood of the patient is placed on a special centrifugal device. The growth factors (proteins) that we use in periodontology, cosmetic surgery treatments for the gum and many other oral surgery treatments are separated in a short period of time.

This modern technique is applicable in :

  • teeth extractions, in particular wisdom teeth and surgical ones
  • surgically placing implants
  • in areas with large bone loss

In this way we minimize the possibility of inflammation, we reduce pain efficiently and promote healing with very good and predictable results in tissue regeneration (fast recovery and restoration).

When you smile broadly, your front teeth in the upper jaw are exposed and you don't like it? Gingivectomy could be your solution. It is a part of cosmetic surgery treatments for the gum. It is a microsurgery, in which we remove a part of gingiva that surrounds the teeth for either esthetic or periodontal tissue health reasons.
