At the ODENT Centre we offer dental surgery,
All treatments are performed using THE WAND computer-assisted local anaesthesia, making them completely painless. We also guarantee professional radiological diagnostics during the treatment process
Dental surgery is not only the surgical removal of teeth that could not be saved with conservative treatment but also a range of specialised and complex oral surgery services:
- Tooth extraction (tooth removal): permanent, baby teeth
- Surgical removal of retained (unerupted) wisdom teeth
- Surgical exposure of retained (unerupted) teeth
- Orthodontic implants
- Frenectomy of the upper lip, lower lip and tongue
- Apicectomy of a tooth root
- Gum plasty – gingivoplasty
- Cyst removal
- Bone reconstruction
It is a procedure involving the removal of a tooth under The Wand computer-assisted anaesthesia. The indication for tooth extraction is advanced tooth disease – decay, which cannot be treated preventively and which, if left untreated, may cause systemic complications.
Surgical removal of retained (unerupted) wisdom teeth
Retained teeth are those that are fully or partially formed but have retained in the bone tissue of the jaw or mandible.
In the patient’s mouth, they are entirely invisible, but they prevent proper oral function and can lead to malocclusion and soft tissue inflammation
Surgical uncovering of retained (unerupted) teeth
The treatment primarily concerns the canine but can affect all teeth
The retention of teeth in the bone occurs during their eruption. Reasons for retained teeth may include:
- Misalignment of the tooth knot
- Lack of space for a tooth in the dental arch
- Trauma to the alveolar region
- Presence of additional (supernumerary) teeth
- Alveolar cleft
An x-ray is used to assess the tooth’s position; then, the tooth is surgically exposed, and an orthodontic bracket is bonded to it. Then, using fixed braces, which are glued on the patient’s teeth, we pull the retained tooth into its place in the dental arch with the help of special flexible extractions. This process can take about 3-12 months.
These are miniature orthodontic screws (0.5-2.5 mm wide and 7-13 mm long), which are placed in the alveolar process of the maxilla and mandible between the teeth and serve as an anchor point for the orthodontic extractor, which is connected to the fixed appliance – glued on the patient’s teeth. Orthodontic implants will allow you to precisely move your teeth in the direction you want, helping you to heal your malocclusion. The procedure is entirely painless, performed under The Wand computer-assisted anaesthesia.
The orthodontic implant is made of highly biocompatible titanium alloys.
Frenectomy of the lower lip, upper lip and tongue
Frenectomy is a short procedure, literally takes a few minutes and is entirely painless. It is performed with an electrocoagulation surgical knife, so there is no blood flow during the process. Frenectomy is performed on the recommendation of a speech therapist, orthodontist, or pediatric dentist (frenectomy in a child) to increase mobility of the lower lip, upper lip, or tongue, which often impede speech. A child with a shortened tongue frenulum has problems with pronunciation of gingival sounds, i.e., sh, zh, ch, j – despite many exercises at speech therapists. We cut frenulum’s in children 5 and older because the procedure requires administration of local anaesthesia (under the tongue or lip), which requires the cooperation of a young patient with the doctor.
Apicectomy of a tooth root
Tooth resection involves cutting off the top of the tooth root. This fragment contains the uncleaned and unfilled portion of the canal. The doctor also removes inflamed tissue changes in the apex area during the procedure and protects the tooth root from re-inflammation with a special MTA cement.The procedure is performed under The Wand computer-assisted anaesthesia. The biggest advantage of this procedure for the patient is the ability to heal the tooth without removing it.
It is a procedure that corrects the gums’ abnormal shape and outline (contour). In case the gums have an inappropriate shape, are asymmetrical, and cover the teeth’ surfaces creating the so-called gummy smile, a smile line correction procedure is performed. Gingival plastic surgery is also used in the opposite situation, i.e. in the case of gingival recession, i.e. exposure of the tooth root surface (treatment of gingival recession) or gingival atrophy. Gingivoplasty involves transplanting the patient’s own tissue (gum graft) in place of the “deficient” gum, a type of autograft that has a very high chance of success. Plastic surgery is performed under The WAND local computer-assisted anaesthesia.
Removal of cyst from maxillary sinus
Root cysts form around the roots of teeth due to ongoing inflammatory processes and are found in the maxilla or mandible bone tissue. They are usually detected incidentally during a routine follow-up X-ray or during severe craniofacial pain. The cyst removal procedure is performed under The Wand computer-assisted local anaesthesia and is entirely painless. Pain and swelling may occur after the procedure, in which case the doctor prescribes painkillers and antibiotics.
Bone reconstruction of the alveolar process of the maxilla or mandible allows for the restoration of the substrate (bone tissue) for future implant prosthetic work. The indication for bone reconstruction is alveolar bone atrophy, which is the loss of bone tissue in the maxilla or mandible. Bone atrophy affects patients who have lost teeth and chose not to have them replaced soon after their extraction. Bone reconstruction surgery involves the insertion of bone tissue to replace the missing bone. The site is then covered with a special barrier membrane. Over about 6-8 months, new bone tissue is “rebuilt”, and in this place, an implant can be placed on which porcelain crowns are made. The procedure is performed under The Wand computer-assisted local anaesthesia and is entirely painless.
Hemisection (tooth root removal in a multi-rooted tooth)
Hemisection is the removal of one (or more) tooth root along with part of the crown in a multi-rooted tooth. The procedure is performed in teeth where periapical lesions are present, and root canal treatment is no longer possible. Hemisection allows you to preserve the healthy part of the tooth on which the prosthetic restoration of the tooth is made.
